Happy Travels: The See-Bring-Do of Colombia!

Colombian fun.August is upon us, and so it’s time for getting in that last minute summer holiday. If reading The Coming Insurrection on Mediterranean beaches didn’t grab your fancy, back packing through London with Michelle Antoinette seemed a touch too expensive, and rubbing elbows with President Morsi a tad too dangerous, why not check out the Secret Service’s vacation pad?

PD’s talking about beautiful Colombia, of course.

Happy Travels: Egypt Update

Believe me, my friend! Egypt very safe!Hey, PDers! Well, it seems that even the Egyptian President himself, Mohamed Morsi, wants you to know that Egypt is perfectly safe for tourists. Believe me, my friend! Believe me!

Happy Travels: The See-Bring-Do of Egypt

What the brochure will show you.Egypt, the ancient cradle of civilization and now swinging bachelor pad of the Muslim Bro-hood is one of PD’s top choices for a summer vacay. From the super friendly Bedouins (whom will feed you while you are held captive), to the luxury resorts of Sharm el Sheik patrolled by security officials with AK-47s, Egypt really does offer something for everybody.

Who's the Hardest Working Man on the Planet?

Attention: Santa at Work.Who’s the hardest working man in the world? Prince Philip? Ryan Seacrest? Ayman Kandeel? Jon Stewart? Barack Obama? All of those strong, clever men pale in comparison to the work ethic of Santa Claus.

It’s not easy supervising a few hundred union elves all year long to be sure you have enough toys for all of the good girls and boys. There are lists to make, TSA pat downs, Cass Sunstein regulations, lists to be checked twice, and reindeers to feed. So, who could possibly begrudge Santa a little down time at the Happiest Place on Earth?

Happy Travels: London Calling!

London police are being joined by the military to discourage terrorists.Heartbroken by the Aurora shooting tragedy, Michelle Antoinette is now eagerly boarding Air Force 2 to head out to the opening ceremony of the Olympics, ready to use the London platform to further her Let’s Move Campaign (no, not the new home scouting campaign she does all over the world, but her anti-fatty one). Why not join the millions of others flocking to Big Ben, and use your vacation time hitting the London cobblestone with Flotus?

What's Chicago's New Currency? Hint: Beyoncé does it!

Chicago currency. Heading up to Chicago in the near future? Be sure to leave your ever-deappreciating dollars at home, because the best currency in the Windy City now seems to be hair extensions.
