In other news, I'm trying to buy plane tickets for a slightly complicated itinerary back to the US in May - flying to Des Moines on the way there, and flying back from Chicago. Does anyone know a way I can force a search to consider non-stop flights on just one leg of the trip? I can't force non-stop for the whole itinerary because on the way to Des Moines there is no such thing - but it's showing me one-stop itineraries both ways - never giving me non-stop flights between Chicago and Frankfurt. Which I know exist. Some itineraries even put you on a little baby-jet for a leg between Chicago and Boston! WTH? I hate flying with the fiery passion of a bajillion trillion suns, so one less flight is something I'm willing to pay a certain amount to get....

Map of European Alcohol Habits
I got a kick out of these maps featured yesterday on Strange Maps. The first is a little too simplified, but I like the second, which shows Germany's wine regions, and indicates that this country is not all beer, beer, beer! People are always asking us about German beer, and to be honest, I know pretty much nothing about it (though my husband has done some..."research"). I take the wine just about any time.
