Re: ipad problems So last night I connected to Itunes. Finally figured out how to sync my apps from the ipad to the pc and then I upgraded. The upgrade wiped everything out and then resynced. I got back on and now it understands my password and is fully updated. Thanks for all your help. And those guys on the other thread that recommended MIFI, thanks as well. Got it from ATT and it works beautifully. The real test will be at the convention in PA I'm going to IYH Wednesday. You gotta love this forum! Can't wait to see Dan in BP when I get back from the convention!

Re: Where were you on September 11, 2001?
Start a thread "Where were you on November 22, 1963? It will be very short.
Sure, start up with an old man!!
I just got home from Yeshivah - a Friday afternoon, so it was around 12:30, and that's when Kennedy got shot! I remember it clearly.
Also remember Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King.
I can't seem to recall President Lincoln!
Again, Gmar Chasimah Tova to you all and looking forward IYH to a great year

Re: Arizona Master Thread
Hows the westin?
I've been there already 3 or 4 times and it's one of my favorite places for an easy, low-stress getaway with the family.
Ok. We are back. When you say the Westin realize that there is the hotel and then the villas. We stayed at the villas, used the spa at the hotel. When you use the villas you are able to use the hotel facilities as well. Based on info found in this chat I emailed as well as called the westin before we left ny and requested a better room. SPG Gold doesn't get any privileges at the Villas, maybe because it's a time share facility. Nevertheless, they gave me the room we requested. They were extremely nice. We stayed 6 nights, relaxed and did little else, so this is not quite a TR you would expect. The villa has a kitchen, living room and bedroom. Has a balcony. Other than that, no windows, which, honestly, we didn't even realize till we were there a while. You open the porch door and that's fine. As expected, facing the golf course, it was very quiet. In reality, the entire Villa grounds were nice and quiet. When we arrived we were quite thirsty and the person behind the desk got us 6 small waters so we didn't have to run out. We got 500 SPG points for each day we didn't use cleaning. (It hasn't posted to my account yet, have a call in), Food - We went to Segals a couple of times. Food was good. Service a little lacking as far as speed, but nice staff. Had your standard chicken dishes. No dessert. Went to La Bella for pizza motzei Shabbos. Large selection. Very good. We went to Manhatten pizza for breakfast. Run down, small, not too appetizing a place, but the food was actually good. All other breakfasts we ate at the JCC in Scottsdale. We went to Kitchen 18 Sunday night and couldn't get in - 45 minute wait. That's when we hit Segal the second time. Kitchen 18 folks said they're breaking records on attendance. We ate there Monday night and the food is quite good, staff very friendly (not so friendly Sunday night, but they were overwhelmed). Now Shabbos. We first checked Kitchen 18 food. It was like going to a restaurant and picking out some dishes. We wanted "Shabbos" food. Saw segal had package deals (definitely not a package of what we wanted). They said no cholent. We went to Imperial. No cholent unless you order 3 pounds minimum? That'll never fly in Flatbush! Anyway, in Imperial you saw everything in front of you and picked what you wanted. No liver, except frozen Meal Mart. We bought our stuff there. We were totally not impressed with the food. Very unhappy. The chopped liver was sawdust. Shabbos - We walked to the Torah Center (Rabbi Shoshan). Last time we went to Scottsdale, 5 years ago, it took around 25 minutes to get there. It seems they moved. Instead of googles 45 minutes, it took us an hour walking slower. Never again. That's just because I can't do the walk. We met another couple, same issue. The shul is very nice to go to though. We did very little. We did do the wild west jeep ride, we thought a very good trip. Very educational. We did one day at the spa. Other than that we just relaxed. The weather, until Monday night, was beautiful Cold in the morning and beautiful the rest of the day. As an aside, we used AA for the trip JFK-PHX and the entire staff on both sides were overly pleasant to deal with and things moved very fast. The steward/stewardesses were just okay. Sorry about very little detail but we really went to just relax. We picked this instead of florida because every one else went there! We recommend the trip, but be careful about where the shul is for Shabbos. (We bought tape for the door and refridgerator for Shabbos and it worked fine.)

Re: Brooklyn Restaurants Went to T Fusion last night for our granddaughter's Sheva Brochos. It was actually incredible. Served a salad, then small burgers in buns and chicken pieces with delicious sauces. An incredible pasta salad with fresh tomato sauce. The main was an incredible off the bone steak. Really delicious. Dessert fruit and churros. Going to this Bison and Bourbon (or something like that) tonight IYH. Heard that  place is good as well. First time going there.

Re: Best Online Backup
Does anyone have experience with iDrive?
Using it for years. It's half price for schools. The "non business" version is much cheaper.

Re: Banff and Jasper Master Thread I have an app that anyone going to the Banff area must have (if driving yourself). It was recommended to us and we were so happy we downloaded it. Basically it's a GPS type app on your iPhone that gives you the tour of wherever you are at the time, like the ride to Banff, the ride to the icefields. It tells you the history of wherever you're driving at the moment - it knows where you are. It tells you things like how long a particular walk might take and perhaps stop here and not there. It's inexpensive and so worth it. Check the site. I bought the bundle when we went. Here's the site:

Fairmont Lake Louise

1. Anyone used free nights from a "friend" and checked in without an issue?
2. Will they store freezer items?
3. Can you get a microwave in room? or how else can you get meals heated?
1. I don't know. 2. yes 3. in room - request it (I was on the gold floor but I don't know if that makes a difference for 2 and 3.

Re: Delta Skymiles FYI I had a flight for myself and wife from NY to MIA for this Tuesday as we go every Purim and I got it a long time ago on a dansdeal. BH my granddaughter is getting married IYH tomorrow night and since her engagement I've been trying to see if they'll do anything for me. I bought insurance but I don't have a health reason and I don't lie. I called them numerous times since then, explained the true situation (invited them to the wedding!) but I got nowhere. Today, no clue why, I called again. I got an exception to use them by the end of December! I guess HUCA can help even the day before!

Re: Chase Ultimate Rewards Points
A friend of mine had fraud on his CSR. He disputed it, and as usual they issued him a new card which he received about 6 weeks ago. Ever since, he gets an error message every time he tries to use his UR. He's tried booking via phone, and had no luck. He spoke to supervisors, and has had multiple cases opened. It's been escalated multiple times, each time giving him 5k UR as comp, but still not helping. Anyone have any advice? Any corporate emails that might get him further?
I say call every day. In less than four months you'll have a half a million miles.

Re: Manhattan Kosher Restaurants Can I get a current rating of the UN Plaza Grill (possibly for our anniversary). ElAl Matmid sent a 20% off coupon. Or should I stick to the Loft since I live in Flatbush?
