Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

I applaud Marriott's experiment.

I think that this experiment is swimming against the tide of history. I do tip hotel housekeepers, but like Ray said downstream, I don't like it. Tipping has all sorts of problems. It's an [more]

Re: Carrying extra weight could be healthier for

I would at least talk with, and possibly meet with, an EP now rather than waiting. That way you'll know NOW what the thinking and assessment needs are, and a plan can be created now and scheduled in a way that fits your needs.
