My wife says that a lot of the opening ceremony was not shown by NBC. She was looking at a Chinese news site and there were pictures of sequences we didn't see in the broadcast. Not sure what...

Well, you won't have to worry about the food anymore. The Encounter Restaurant went out of business on December 31st. Sadly, the view isn't available anymore either -- the observation deck elevator...

I buy gas with my Costco Amex. The 3% cash back almost always works out to less than the cash price. Of course, if I'm actually at Costco and buy gas there, it works out even better. :)

We'll know in Q2'14 when they're actually supposed to put some in the hands of Air New Zealand. For now, I'm just looking forward to my 787-8 flight in a couple of weeks. :)
