Boating adventures can offer you the best holiday memories that you can never forget, but you always need to be prepared for the unexpected events that can change the course of your life.

A Hiding Place

By D. Sager, published on Feb 24, 2012

“There are no 'if's' in God's world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety - let us pray that we may always know it!” - Corrie ten Boom, The Hiding Place

Safety. A relative term, as I can feel safe in places others can't. The reverse is true as well, there are common things that cause me to feel threatened. This feeling of safety is one of the casualties of being a victim of a violent crime, especially a sexual crime. Safety isn't a feeling however. Feeling safe and being safe can be entirely different things. I have... (more)

Released

By D. Sager, published on Feb 15, 2012

I will guide you through your inhibitions To secret places beyond skin Slaying your fears and laying them at rest Released to feel abandon within Drop your fetters they are unable to keep you Rising on heated drafts of sense Plunging deep beneath waterfalls of escape Servants of winged concupiscence All your life woman, longing to aimlessly run A doe in grasses frolicking without censor Jumping over pillows of mossy wood Finding safety in my fertile pasture

A Word About Luggage...For the Faint of Heart!

By The Savvy Passenger, published on Oct 12, 2011

...website or call their customer service number for further information.

The airlines carried over 2.5 billion passengers last year[2]—for all the annoyances, irritations, limitations and frustrations that people have towards the airline industry, there is still a lot they do right. Safety and security are paramount with all my airline brothers and sisters and they continue to excel in those two things every day.

I can count on two hands the number of truly unsatisfied passengers I have had to deal with in my entire career…like I always say; people are either slightly... (more)

Crazy Don't Work in the Air -- Part 2!

By The Savvy Passenger, published on Sep 23, 2011

Ok, what **IS** in the water these days!? In the air? In people's daydreams?

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about two high profile cases involving celebrities misbehaving on airplanes(see http://www.savvypassenger.com/?m=20110905). Now it seems that the general public is trying to get into the act...

This morning, it was reported that a passenger on a Delta Air Lines flight from SLC to LAS threatened to slit another passenger's throat with a knife over an argument regarding the armrest. When other passengers noticed that the culprit reached into his bag several times, and... (more)

The Do Not Call List

By Jon Ryan, published on Jul 12, 2011

We can all relate to getting calls at home during those special times of the day. It’s hard to enjoy a dinner with the family when you are getting interrupted every five minutes to ask once again “Please take us off your call list”. My mother did it for years. I guess some of these calls fell on the phones of government officials, because in 2003 the Do Not Call Registry was created.

The aim of the registry was to give citizens a limited, but universal opt-out. The list does not stop all calls from happening. It will however, act as a first line of defense against unwanted calls. Some... (more)

That Little Buzz You're Feeling

By Paul Wylie, published on Aug 30, 2010

Even though most of our planet is covered by water, we can not drink it. Desalinization attempts around the globe have been successful up to a certain point, but there is still a long way to go before the usage of salt water for ingestion by people becomes widespread.

Most of our water is gathered in reservoirs, from falling rain, or mountain runoff from melting ice. But a new study just published tells us why we've all been having an odd feeling, knowing something just isn't quite right, but being unable to put our finger on it. No, I'm not talking about the continuing debacle in Afghanistan,... (more)

The Truth About the Roof

By Ed Attanasio, published on Dec 24, 2009

Recently, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety told car manufacturers that they are going to have to make vehicle roofs thicker and stronger if they want to attain top safety ratings. It’s a smart decision and one that needed to be made. Too many injuries occur in accidents where cars flip over onto their roofs, which then collapse. This announcement will help save lives and make our cars safer. Many of us spend as much as 20% of our waking hours in our cars, so we obviously want then to be as safe as possible.

I was in an accident many years ago in which the vehicle I was in flipped.... (more)
