Travel Tune – March 10, 2019
Another song that I stumbled on during my recent round-the-world trip.  I think I found the song on one of my favorite stations in the U.S. (KCRW), but can’t remember exactly where I heard it.  It’s an acoustic track from an Australian songwriter.  It’s nice, hope you like it too

Post Office Still Alive For Manufactured Spend
Dead? There are tons of points blogs out there that break news, and get information out to hobbyists quickly.  I’m thankful that they do, and many do an excellent job of it.  On November 3, 2017 major points sites like Flyertalk, DoctorofCredit, FrequentMiler and many others claimed that the the Post Office wasn’t viable for manufacture...
