Come on Down, Y'all

Did I mention that Dal is a travel agent? Vigilantly he searches for the best deal for each of his deserving clients. More often than not he will also find and organise delicious holidays for us (that we never go on).

I realise that these financial times are tough. We are all facing circumstances that ensure we tighten our belts. Dal has definitely noticed a decrease in travel sales indicating that the public is just not spending as frivolously as it once was.

I am sure all the airlines are noticing this travel downturn, too. Because you wouldn't believe what Dal came across today.

Flights from LA to Sydney return can be bought for just over US$700!!! Qantas is getting desperate.

I know each of you have a spare $700 just laying around the house. So scrape it up and I will see you in Sydney shortly.

oooh, that IS a good deal! And I plan fantasy vacations ALL the time, the kind we never take. It's fun to dream, though.

I'm so relieved to hear this! I was just sitting here thinking, "Dang. What am I going to do with this extra seven hundred smacks?" And I was THISCLOSE to finally setting fire to it. But NOW, I can come and see YOU instead!!

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥

Hmmm! Australia sounds pretty good right now. Pity I don't have $700 in the cupboard :-)

Just dropping by to let you know I have a super give-away contest running this week (and every week) on my LDS blog at Not Entirely British

This time, the prize is a copy of award-winning author Annette Lyon's latest release in her Temple series - Tower of Strength.

Hope you have time to hop on over and take a peek :-)
