Re: Credit Card Validation

Call the airline ASAP and tell them what happened. I am sure you are not the first person that has done this. Better to speak to someone that can give you an official answer.

Sayings and Customs

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot. Once a day it was taken and sold to the tannery. If you had to do this to survive, you were “piss poor.” But worse than that were the really poor folks who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot. They “didn’t have a pot to ...

Not much is mentioned about what the English are doing or the Germans or whoever unless it's a tragedy or the President i...
