Tired but Back in One Piece

We made it back from Europe in one piece - our flight from Newark to Houston, though was delayed by four hours by apparently disgruntled traffic controllers. 3 1/2 of those hours were spent sitting on the plane in the tarmac as traffic control moved around from one "parking spot" to another. Fortunately, everyone was very civil and the pilot kept the situation from getting tense by informing us often and in a light-hearted manner. Kudos to Continental.

So, I'll have some good stuff on our trip to Madrid and Grand Canary. Stay tuned...

In the meantime, here is a good article from the New York Times on tips for dealing with long delays.
