    Air bnb business- anyone with experience ?

    So one does not stay at an Airbnb that prohibits guests. Problem solved.

    Survivor S39: Island of the Idols

    Yeah, I am guessing she was second guessing the entire conversation that she and Kellee had on the beach, thinking Kellee was playing her.

    Actually, AirBnB started as the latter, and can still be used that way. it's just that even that is a lot of work.

    Air bnb business- anyone with experience ?

    You can designate in your listing 1) no parties and 2) no bringing anyone not included in the booking to your home. Since you'd be there too, it would be very easy to know if they're having a party. But your definition of "quiet" may not match that of your guests, and if you host you will need...

    ^ I second TAHbKA's and Louis's posts 100% I have stayed in dozens of Airbnbs, both sharing living quarters with the host, and renting a separate unit either with host onsite/nearby or remote. If the space you are considering renting is private, you can charge more, but the more hotel-quality...

    Survivor S39: Island of the Idols

    I went and watched the last 2 episodes (or 3, since this week's was a double ep). In some ways this feels like production blew it up harder than ANY of the players. The way the show was edited to include production felt extremely.... performative and CYA. The most telling part of all of this...

    Survivor S39: Island of the Idols

    I haven't had a tv since I started traveling, so have not seen the last few seasons of Survivor (sob), but I just saw a story about this and even having read a few articles, don't have the slightest clue what happened other than a guy that is known for being grabby and has been formally warned...

    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I am still on a book buying ban (which I've only broken twice since returning, I think), and the only downside is that I loooove books, and I also love supporting both authors and brick and mortar bookstores. I will be doing some xmas shopping at my favorite bookstore to hopefully scratch that itch.

    One of the great things about libraries is that they provided all sorts of services for people from all walks of life. I love going to the downtown Seattle library, which is an architectural wonder, and seeing it used by business folks, families, and yes, the homeless.

    The Death of Deadspin.com

    Deadspin was great - and the story is even bigger, because Splinter News (owned and hosted by the same conglomerate) shuttered only a month or so ago. That was my go-to news resource (becisdes FSU, of course). Jezebel has been a hollow parody of itself for 2-3 years, so its demise wouldn't...

    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    Maybe this isn't the time to mention that I was reading my new library book in the bath last night :shuffle: I was careful but did wonder what I would tell the library if I dropped it (don't worry - I'm too much of a goody two shoes and LOOOOVE the library so I would pay for the book if I ruined...

    My book was due today and I hadn't quite finished it, so I stopped by the library after work and read until I was done so I could give it back on time :encore: Picked up a memoir - In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado. I've not heard of this writer, but this book had me at the prologue :P

    Oh, man, just two years ago I would have been so into that. But I feel like we're living the sequel, Hope's Promises Dashed and it's just bleak.
