There seems to be some conflicting news when it comes to air travel.  Federal statistics show airline delays and cancellations are down in the past dozen years, but a government watchdog says those numbers aren't accurate because the department of transportation is only looking at the sixteen biggest airlines and they only handle three-quarters of all domestic flights.

With 2013 coming to an end, a lot of people are already starting to think about tax season.  It's right around the corner and you still have time to work on a few last-minute savings and deductions. One thing to be mindful of are holiday bonuses.  They can put you in a higher tax bracket.  You might want to also consider donating to charity or your retirement savings account.  Both are tax deductible.

If you haven't yet watched classic films "Roman Holiday" and "Titanic"  on Netflix, you might want to do it soon.  Those are two of several movies and television shows that will be dropped on Wednesday, the start of 2014.  Netflix says it routinely adds and drops titles.
