No pictures?
A picture is worth a thousand words and this bot can't speak more than 140 characters at a time, so that's gonna be difficult.

Had a remarkably good meal on the short PHL-MIA hop. Borenstien Braised short ribs, cous cous, and a bunch of weird sides. Was pretty tasty.

I hope your stomach enjoyed the meal as much as your shirt

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

We live in interesting times.

I misplaced my microSD cards. Ordered them on Amazon Prime Now from Philly, had it delivered to JJ in MIA, who then gave it to Dan to give to me.

That food looks terrible. Any kosher around us?
Agreed. No kosher McDonald's in the US

How accurate is the balloon on the map? Apparently you're sitting on the wing of the plane.
