Hint from Skyscanner.com never spend your points on hotels or airline shops.
Skyscanner suggest Velocity Frequent Flyer and Qantas Frequent Flyer offer the most opportunities for point earning and route coverage.
As a guideline, frequent flyer points are worth more in the sky than they are on the ground. Your points typically have more value when it comes to booking flights than they do for purchasing goods through the airline’s store or booking a hotel room.
Points usually have the best value when used for upgrades and purchasing full-priced fares. If you find a flight on sale, it might be worth paying for that flight outright and earning points with it than spending your points and getting nailed with taxes and surcharge fees of the full-price (not sale) fare.
According to the Blogg ‘The Simple Dollar . com‘the best Airline rewards in America are the following:-
In some cases points also expire, so if you’ve accrued many, be sure to spend them before they disappear.
Another interesting fact I read from the Courier Mail Australia that a pet peeve of flight attendants is when a Diet coke is requested. The reason being this drink is especially fizzy because the lower air pressure in the cabin means it is easier for the CO2 to release. In fact, in the time it takes to pour a single Diet Coke, a flight attendant could have also served three other passengers this was confirmed by the blogg These Golden wings. com
So be warned probably not a good idea to order Diet Coke on the trip if you want to keep on the right side of the Attendant.
This is an article about bottle water from a well known tv personality, Dr Axe.
I have been writing about bottled water for some time and the dangers of drinking too much of it. I know a lot us (well I used to) buy flats of bottle water that would last us a week or so. ‘Not a good idea’. That is why I did a lot of research and found the Kangen Water Filter system to be the best on the market.
Now they appear rather expensive but if you calculate the cost of bottled water over the years the filter is not expensive at all. First of all they are great quality and secondly the maintenance backup for these water filters are superior to any that I studied.
I had been using filtered water via the jugs for many years but only to find they are not filtering a lot of the really harmful toxins in the water and because of the type of water you get from the Kangen filters there is absolutely no comparison.
As you can see from the picture above there are several models. If you got to the website “lifechanging-water.com” you can browse the different models
Here are some facts published on Dr Axes Website about bottled water. It is well worth the read
Fast Facts: Basic Bottled Water Stats
- The average American drinks about 31 gallons of bottled water a year.
- Less than 30 percent of plastic water bottles are recycled.
- Bottled water is full of hormone-disrupting chemicals. Anti-estrogens and anti-androgens are present in the majority of bottled water.
- Estrogenicity in water from plastic bottles is three times higher compared to glass.
- Contamination of bottled water results in human exposure to endocrine disruptors.
- Bottled water risks include an increased cancer risk. A recent study found 11 out of 18 bottled water sampled induced estrogenic effects in a human cancer cell line.
- People in the U.S. buy half a billion bottles of water a week, more than enough to circle the globe 5 times.
- Laboratory testing conducted by Environmental Working Group found popular bottled water brands to contain mixtures of 38 different pollutants, including bacteria, fertilizer, Tylenol and industrial chemicals, some at levels no better than tap water. Some even contain high levels of cancer-causing chlorination byproducts.
- In the United States, 24 percent of bottled water sold is either Pepsi’s Aquafina or Coke’s Dasani. Both brands are bottled, purified municipal tap water.
- Dr. Gina Solomon, a senior scientist at the Natural Resources Defense Council, an environmental advocacy group, told The New York Times that “there is no reason to believe that bottled water is safer than tap water.”
- In the U.S., public water is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which requires multiple daily tests for bacteria and makes results available to the public. The Food and Drug Administration, which regulates bottled water, only requires weekly testing and does not share its findings with the EPA or the public.
- According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some bottled water risks include fluoride exposure. Fluoride can occur naturally in source waters used for bottling or it can be added.

“If you don’t do different nothing will change”
I received this via email the other day so decided to research it. Seemed a little too good to be true.
Result: Fiction according to Dashofwellness.com
Almonds as a headache relief are still up for debate. While it is proven that magnesium and vitamin B2 is beneficial for preventing migraines, almonds may not be as effective by themselves. In fact, for some people, almonds can actually trigger a migraine. It is important to talk to your doctor as well as to monitor how you feel after you eat almonds, as some people may be allergic to the salicin in almonds. For those who want to give almonds a try for their headaches, it is recommended to eat 10-12 almonds a day in order to help prevent headaches and migraines.
