I like hotels in the Hilton chain. I especially like Homewood Suites because a genuine suite (the kind with a door between the sleeping and living areas) doesn’t cost a lot more than a room at some other chains. We stayed at the Boston/Peabody Homewood Suites for a couple of days last month and were entirely satisfied. You knew there was a however, didn’t you? However, today I got an unwanted sales call from Hilton Grand Vacations time shares. I called Hilton Honors and told them that if I continue to get unwanted calls from their time-share subsidiary after staying in their hotels, I’ll stop staying in their hotels, even though I do like them. Maybe it’s a coincidence, but if so, it’s not the first coincidence, or the first time I’ve complained about it.
The spell checker built into Facebook thinks Zuckerberg, spelled correctly, isn’t spelled correctly. On the other hand, the spell checker built into MS Word is familiar with the term. Go ahead, try it. Unless they scan the internet for every mention of Facebook, it will still be true by the time you get around to checking it.
You don’t have to be as wealthy as Donald Trump says he is in order to wear clothes that fit properly. On the other hand (and this may be less obvious) being as wealthy as Donald Trump says he is doesn’t preclude you from wearing clothes that fit either.
Don’t know if he’s in the right place, but Doctor John the Grammy-winning New Orleans musician, passed away earlier this week. RIP Doctor, Doctor John. Two doctors because he called himself doctor and Tulane University awarded him an honorary doctorate a while back, I think in 2012.
A few days ago, in a supermarket I patronize, there were packages in the refrigerator case labeled, “5 Cheese Ravioli.” Except, there were six in each package. So, I’m assuming for the sake of clarity they meant “5-Cheese Ravioli.”
