      According to current and former officials, "wheels up, rings off," has long been a running joke among men in the agency, meaning that for some agents, wedding rings were optional after the plane took off, particularly for foreign travel assignments.

    Whats so embarising my poor spelling of fact that I am the only one that comments on these articles? You sure are grumpy today is it the price of fame? Sometimes I worry about people with pshycological issues that make me feel uncomfortable by focusing on my fame. " My blog is really catching on " I believe all the stats 100% and know that my impressions are fake. " Insert Humour here "

    And Might I add " Wow is erin burnett every popular online with the blogs online "

    Your biggest and from following your blog apparently only online fan.
