Here's a Tip
Remember that it is a good idea to leave your housekeeper a $2-$5 tip every day. If you are holding a party, remember how much harder the housekeepers have to work to clean up, and tip generously.

If you plan to be in the Los Angeles area during the Thanksgiving weekend this year, then consider attending LosCon, the premier L.A. area science fiction convention. Discounted memberships are being sold for here, at BayCon, for $30.00. If you join this weekend, you will be entered in a contest to either win a toy ray gun from the movie Mars Attacks! or an upgrade from a regular room to a suite at LosCon. If you're already a member of LosCon XXIV, come by the LosCon table or party and get details on how you can become part of the cheap marketing ploy for LosCon and get a chance to win other prizes.
