    Thumbs up Salute to Paul and Donna

    I recently noticed a couple of us are celebrating 15 years with the Non-Rev Network. So, in recognition of their years of helping us pilot non-revs skies, I would like to offer a special salute to both BRITSKI99 (Paul) and MRSDS1DONNA (Donna), who have helped us navigate their home airlines, steered us through their respective home turfs and clued us into such diverse topics as what’s in a traditional full English breakfast and the fact that Gustavus, Alaska isn’t as charming as one would think.
    A few fun facts about Paul
    knows Latin but can’t spell or pronounce aluminum correctly.
    can identify Buckingham Palace and Downing Street from an overhead photo, but struck out with the Tate Modern
    really cares about the integrity of cheddar cheese. According to Paul, proper cheddar cheese comes from Cheddar England, and to say anything else is and I quote,
    “Like describing a Tea Room in Stratford as a New York Deli!”


    really knows his airline logos – Paul was the only one to earn a perfect score 15/15 on one our Forum Logo quizzes.
    was quick to point out that while we in the US made a big deal out of 3.14.15 (M7 even calling it a historic day), most of the world knows there’s no 14th month.”
    once offered this classic advice to a rookie non-rev:

    says he knows why the chicken crossed the road
    And likes to add an extra “u” to a lot of words
    Paul is one of a handful of members to have their own signature dish in the Forum’s Lounge bar - Paul’s Speedbird Salt Cod Fritters.


    Did you know that MRSDSIDONNA (Donna) has
    a serious obsession with finding covered parking and keeps an oven mitt in her car.
    run a half marathon (whiskey was involved)
    is fascinated with “combat fishing”
    hiked a glacier.
    stumbled onto a nude beach - says it was an accident, but personally I don’t think anyone gets that engrossed in collecting seashells.
    said she should have bypassed Gustauvus, Alaska.


    flown on the delivery flight of a brand new 737-900ER

    also said she knows why the chicken crossed the road.


    And says the iconic Eskimo on the tail of AS planes is named “Chester” and not Bob.

    Donna also has a signature dish in the Forum’s bar - “Donna’s DC-10 Quesadillas”, which she likes to pair with Don Julio 1942 - Tequila.

    Happy Fifteenth Anniversary guys the champagne's on me.

    That is awesome! You are right, Gustavus is not nearly as fun as Yakutat. I can also tell you how to navigate the difficult task of signing up for a Run Disney event (it can be difficult) as I have done way too many of them. As of last week, I can highly recommend a piano bar in Ogunquit Maine (The Front Porch) and advise you to order the frozen cosmopolitan but not 4 of them (don't ask).

    Just tell me you didn't dance on the tables. On or trip to Maine we got all the way up to Presque Isle - great blueberries and the best lobster roll I've ever had - at Alisson's in Kennebunkport. BTW it was in Presque Isle that they asked about my accent *wink*

    No table dancing but I did find out that I know the words to way too many TV theme songs and to an awful lot of pop songs from the 50's. This is a sit at the piano and sing along kind of place - which we did for 4 hours. Super fun!

    Wonderful thread; congrats for sharing this Mig--along all the knowledge, opinions, AND foolishness in here.
    BTW, we have Sir Humphry Davy to blame for aluminium...

    "Aluminium" M7, Paul is going to be quite impressed and I can almost hear Sir Davy thanking you. But please don't start adding extra "U's" too, my sell check will go nuts
