    Starting to look for a new house. Not looking forward to house shopping and the move, but when it's all said and done it should be nice. My wife is going to leave the hospital where she is currently working, and was offered another at $67 per hour.

    Someone would have to pay me $67/hr to do the house shopping and moving thing -freaking hate it. At the same time, commuting every day sucks more, and it's great that you're able and willing to save the wife that time and aggravation every day.

    The plan was to move out of the big box house in Temecula anyway. The kid is graduating and we wanted to move to north San Diego county closer to the beach all along. However, the hospitals around here are less professional and don't pay as well, so she became proactive and started looking a little sooner than planned. She can commute for a time as we look for the house.

    For two nights this weekend we get to stay in a house in Manhattan Beach Los Angeles. Brother-in-law fixes homes and flips them, and offered it up to us. The house has staging furniture in it, and it will be fun to spend the weekend in that area. So a weekend messing around by the beach in LA.

    I'm assuming it was the jumpseat in the cockpit. Just curious how you were able to get picked for this? Do you know someone with connections?

    Yup, that's what I said, jumpseat in the cockpit. As for how does one get such seat, well, I will say that working for an airline (don't ask me which one, I won't answer) has its benefits. Definitely the second best seat I sat during flight.

    Intrigued as to what you're referring to here. One of three things: Either you sat in the pilots seat before the flight started. You sat next to a hot stewardess and had a good time with that. Or you really needed to take a dump and relieved yourself mid flight. :oops: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
