Grill isn't working. Was about $400 and six years old. Main connector thingy and gas tankjust replaced so not the problem.

Gut poll:
Try fixing grill
Buy grill in 175 range
Buy grill in 500 range

I'm pretty incompetent so leaning for new cheap grill.

At what point is anyone going to care that our phones are clearly recording everything that we say and selling the info for ads?

Thought you were a bit older than 10.

Paris - get as much done as you can during the day because everything seems to be close really early.

Paris is in France and has a museum called The Louvre. I will watch Rick Steves’ Europe for more info.

Was in Paris for a week two summers ago and I honestly can't recommend anything.

Decided to use a vacation day today and when I got home last night the power was out at my house. WE Energies was kind enough to restore it from 2am-7am when it went back down just in time to actually need to use it again. Literally couldn't do anything outside or inside today. Decided to just go to f*cking work instead of reading by candle light.
Winning.

If you do the Eiffel Tower, 100% buy your pass ahead of time. We waited almost 2 hours to get up to the middle level. Going to the dog way top will take forever.

Paris was cool, we walked around everywhere and saw the major sites. Didn’t pay to go in to any and I wouldn’t recommend doing that unless you’re dying to. One thing to absolutely do is watch the tower every hour on the hour after 9pm as it sparkles and shimmers.

Just so happened to time my proposal (incredibly lucky timing after dinner) to have the tower sparkling.

I have never been there so my advice is useless.....
-I always recommend a walking city tour the first day in the city. Allows you to learn some history and put a little meaning in random everyday things. "We have coffee next to the square where they had...."
-If you and the SO are into outdoors and over there awhile, you aren't tooooo far from the alps and beautiful landscapes (but then again you can say that for just about anything in Europe)

Will only be there for 3 days, so I think we'll just hit the main stuff. Doing Normandy 1 day, 2 days in Brussels, 3 days in Amsterdam. Looking forward to it.

Really depends on what you want to experience. 3 days is not long. Absorb the culture through food, exploration. Just get lost. Try something you’ve never tried. Be friendly and stroke their ego and they will treat you well.

My two cents.

Don't forget the word Fluggaenkoecchicebolsen. You'll need it in Amsterdam.

What is the brand of the grill that just broke? I want to buy a gas grill and girlfriends parents keep telling me to spend the extra money on the Weber. Weber grills are expensive so I don't have a grill. lol
