Re: Important

Yeah it's hump. Seems like the week is dragging on, I was planning on calling in sick and having a ditch day Friday. I think my boss could tell, he schedule 3 different contractors to come in and ask for me since he won't be there... I guess I'll show up and save that sick day for later.

I use my delta card for everything and just pay it off every month. I'll probably lose the majority of my status this year, but it has been awesome not travelling as much.

Platinum with the reserve card gets you upgrades pretty frequently...

Re: Important

I had a nice Nikon SLR, and have a Sony DSLR, but really like my Panasonic FZ200 because it always has the right lens on. The FZ1000 has many upgrades from the 200, but not the 2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range. The larger sensor probably makes up for that though.
