Customer Service Improvements in the Last 30 Years at 35,000 Feet?!?

Do you enjoy sitting between a pregnant woman and a sumo wrestler on your cross-country flight? No problem, right…

You would think that the airplanes would have a public address system without static by now…

Much has been reported recently about violence and overbooked flights. What have the airlines done? Technology has focused on self-centered economic efficiency and not the customers’ comfort and convenience.

Did you check out the “duty-free” in-flight store? Stewardesses modeling apparel, jewelry, pearls, watches, medallions, shoes, religious relics, parachutes, food-to-go, wine and booze, baked goods, luggage, turbans, scarfs, hats, native Indian garments, Mormon garments, pet supplies, toys, pacifiers, plugs, and binkies? Good ideas yet to be implemented. Magazines? Books? Air Phones? Neck and shoulder messages? More good revenue-generating schemes not yet implemented.

 

You really like a healthy, clean, HEPA-quality breathing air supply? Don’t fly zone then.

Did you think the pilot and purser’s voices sounded like cartoon characters? It may be a recording of Toy Story 4…

Need first aid supplies? Go fish…

Looking for more leg room? Lose weight!

Do you like to lean backwards in your seat? Watch your back!

No longer is cash “legal tender” aboard an aircraft. Thou must pay for everything by credit or debit card…

Good luck on your next flight ;<(

Promises, Promises

Viewpoint written by Robert Reich:

1. He called Hillary Clinton a crook.
You bought it.
Then he paid $25 million to settle a fraud lawsuit.

2. He said he’d release his tax returns, eventually.
You bought it.
He hasn’t, and says he never will.

3. He said he’d divest himself from his financial empire, to avoid any conflicts of interest.
You bought it.
He is still heavily involved in his businesses, manipulates the stock market on a daily basis, and has more conflicts of interest than can even be counted.

4. He said Clinton was in the pockets of Goldman Sachs, and would do whatever they said.
You bought it.
He then proceeded to put half a dozen Goldman Sachs executives in positions of power in his administration.

5. He said he’d surround himself with all the best and smartest people.
You bought it.
He nominated theocratic loon Mike Pence for Vice President. A white supremacist named Steve Bannon is his most trusted confidant. Dr. Ben Carson, the world’s greatest idiot savant brain surgeon, is in charge of HUD. Russian quisling Rex Tillerson is Secretary of State.

6. He said he’d be his own man, beholden to no one.
You bought it.
He then appointed Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, whose only “qualifications” were the massive amounts of cash she donated to his campaign.

7. He said he would “drain the swamp” of Washington insiders.
You bought it.
He then admitted that was just a corny slogan he said to fire up the rubes during the rallies, and that he didn’t mean it.

8. He said he knew more about strategy and terrorism than the Generals did.
You bought it.
He promptly gave the green light to a disastrous raid in Yemen- even though all his Generals said it would be a terrible idea. This raid resulted in the deaths of a Navy SEAL, an 8-year old American girl, and numerous civilians. The actual target of the raid escaped, and no useful intel was gained.

9. He said Hillary Clinton couldn’t be counted on in times of crisis.
You bought it.
He didn’t even bother overseeing that raid in Yemen; and instead spent the time hate-tweeting the New York Times, and sleeping.

10. He called CNN, the Washington Post and the New York Times “fake news” and said they were his enemy.
You bought it.
He now gets all his information from Breitbart, Gateway Pundit, and InfoWars.

11. He called Barack Obama “the vacationer-in-Chief” and accused him of playing more rounds of golf than Tiger Woods. He promised to never be the kind of president who took cushy vacations on the taxpayer’s dime, not when there was so much important work to be done.
You bought it.
He took his first vacation after 11 days in office.
On the taxpayer’s dime.
And went golfing.

And that’s just the first month.

What Were the Best Commercials of Super Bowl LI

Besides the upcoming movie trailers, the automobile industry came up with most of the best. Honda’s CRV’s talking yearbook and 84 Lumber’s immigration story were the most inspirational.

Kia’s ad with Melissa McCarthy scored big in USA Today’s annual meter. http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ad-meter/super-bowl/2017/02/06/melissa-mccarthy-kia-ad-captures-2017-ad-meter-title/97540302/

“If that car is a Buick, my kid is Cam Newton,” remarks a parent as his child morphs into last year’s Super Bowl quarterback.

Avacados fr0m Mexico featured a member of a Secret Society streaming their activities during a meeting on his cell phone.

Busch beer placed a man disturbing nature while opening up his hissing beer can.

It’s a 10 Hair Care had over a dozen attention-getting styles flashing during their 30 second spot.

The Fabreze commercial reminded viewers to get the air freshioners set up for the rush-to-the-bathroom halftime break.

Skittles showed a young Romeo tossing candies through a second floor window not only to his love but members of her entire family.

This year, for once in the 51 year history of the Super Bowl, the game itself was the highlight of the day! Whether you like the Patriots or not, you have to admit that their comeback was the greatest comeback of all times.

 

 

 

Lesson from “The Five Owls” – 3-Step Process for Children Literacy

Credit for this should be given to Holly and Dan Dailey, who worked tirelessly in Minneapolis on this project between 1980 and 2005:

Step 1: Make time for reading with your children.

Step 2: Create an environment for reading.

a) Read aloud to kids everyday,

b) Discuss stories, events, and the world around them,

c) Encourage children to learn letters and words,

d) Take children to libraries and bookstores, and

e) Encourage reading and writing as free-time activities.

Step 3: Read good books and talk about them

Open Letter to Readers of “Wandervogel Diary” and Supporters of The Redemption Project

 

written from “Estrella Vista”, 800 Seaman Road, HC-65, Box 243 A, Alpine, West Texas  79830; telephone (432) 371-4257 –

DaileySun@outlook.com

 

Dear Family and Friends,

 

Authentic issues of “Wandervogel Diary,” passed into the afterlife with Dan L. Dailey

in November, 2016.

 

Being his younger brother of five and a half years, I arrived at Estrella Vista

– originally named the Wandervogelhaus –

on December 11, 2016.

 

That date is between the birthdays of Dan and David’s only blood-sister, Mary Christine Dailey Schultz Neumann [12-10-1949], and “baby brother” David Arthur Francis Niklas Dailey [12-12-1953].

 

So in the spirit which is part tradition, genetics, respect, and forward searching,

I am asking diary readers to respond with their best efforts to keep the vision,

mission, goals, and projects of The Redemption Project moving into the right direction.

 

What Dan L. attempted was never a one-man-job.

He will remain the “face” of the movement and one main source

of inspiration for all of us and many more “movers and shakers” to come. I praise Dan’s assignment of Lone Heron to administer The Redemption Project, which I know I could not be successful leading.

 

Although I am a writer with great interests in justice, politics, and human development, my focus has been with sports, political satire, public health and safety, and comedy – all kinds of humor, including stand-up entertainment.

 

I think humor has its place. In The Redemption Project, it needs to be applied carefully,

timely, in the proper situation, among a suitable audience, etc., etc., etc.

 

Your support of Lone Heron, Dan’s son Henry, and many others working on the project

will be appreciated very much.

 

Where ever I may be writing my funny stuff,

I will be praying, hoping, and thinking about your future successes.

 

All the best,

 

 

David

St. Dan Louis’ Web-Blog from Estella Vista, West Texas (written by St. Danny in 2009) fyi: DLD passed away on 11-22-2016

My older brother had a thing about numerology, anniversaries (Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories, etc.), justice particularly for minors with a real rough childhood, and establishing a safe haven for those that could benefit from “getting away from it (rat races) all” where the southwest Texas desert air and mountains offer a respite that will last an improved lifetime.

 

If you have never red any of his writings, now is the time to also pray that Dan L. has no more time to spend in purgatory, which he believed was only a Catholic myth. Enjoy his style and messages often hidden within the paragraphs and diagrams:
