James Meickle, a 14-year-old boy on his first flight alone, found himself marooned in Albany, N.Y., on his return trip home from Lake Placid, N.Y., recently.
How he made it back to his mom, Taaron Meickle, and his family in Reston, Va., goes a long way towards countering a struggling airline industry’s reputation.
As soon as Meg received the text, she knew she was busted: “I tried to message you on Facebook, but we’re not friends anymore. Is something wrong?”
No and yes. No, because Meg, a good friend of my wife, still likes her friend; she was simply cleaning out her Facebook friends she doesn’t communicate with very much.
Yes, because any time you unfriend someone, whether in social media or in real life, it can be awkward. Very awkward.
To say Richard Dunn didn’t enjoy his Western Caribbean sailing on the NCL Epic might be something of an understatement.
If you don’t believe me, see what he slept on (above). Or watch the video he made after his vacation.
Go on, I’ll wait here.
As the owner of a Garmin Golf GPS, Jerry Cee found himself up against a steep learning curve and numerous technical challenges.

I already know how I’m going to meet my maker. It’s just a matter of when.
Someone’s going to find me face-planted into my keyboard, with the coroner’s diagnosis of death by acute Password Retention Pox.
Does anyone else see a similar fate in their future?
I just counted the number of sites that I visit at least once a month (and most more often than that) that need a password. There are no less than 45.
The human brain was never intended to juggle this many personal identification balls in the air.
Steve Adams is a patient man.
You have to be when you’re a 2nd through 12th-grade basketball coach. But Adams’ recent experience with his uniform vendor tested the limits of his tolerance.
By day, Adams is the vice president of a fire and life safety solutions company. By night, he runs Triumph Basketball in Dallas, a basketball club with over 350 players on 38 teams, and 11 coaches. Last fall, Adams interviewed five uniform vendors and chose Lids.
When it comes to good service, it sometime takes a little while for the lights to go on.
But when they do, maybe it’s because you found yourself at BMW of Catonsville in the Washington metro area, as I recently did.
