    How do you respond to hagglers?

    The first B&B I worked at discounts were in our favor. A couple people got the best rooms in the house for the cheapest room rate during the off season only because we didn't feel like cleaning it that day when we had open clean rooms available. We just told them that there was an issue with...

    Hello from me

    Other Websites

    Yes. My uncle wanted a certain domain name for the family inn long ago so when I saw it expired, I snag it. I once had a dream that boo king let their domain name expire by accident and I saw it... I still smile at that one.

    A w2 question USA

    I would contact the funeral parlor. Another person to contact is the burial plot manager. They will have contacts. We did that and gave the place our info and the next to kin contacted us an hour later.

    Decorating mantels

    On our mantels, flameless candles, mirrors, boxes of tissues, and books. We tend to go with a sparse theme. Let the guest decorate their room while they are there. We specialize in lots of flat space for them to leave stuff hanging around and drawers to hide things from the maids' eyes.
