Question of the Week: The Kindness of Strangers

Listen with RealAudio          Need audio help?

A Renaissance man or woman may be proficient in many things. Still, nobody can do everything. That's why your typical heart surgeon hires a mechanic to perform the valve job on his Beemer. In turn the mechanic, elbow deep in axle grease probably doesn't have time to harvest his own crops, so he heads to the local grocery store. In short, we all rely on each other. This especially holds true when we travel. How many times have you we found yourself in a jam miles from home only to have a Good Samaritan come along to help you out?

Audio available on Monday, February 5.

Next Week: Musical Journeys

The luggage is packed, you've gassed up the mini-van or checked your pocket for the plane tickets. Now comes the most important part of getting ready for that trip...figuring out what music to bring along. You cull through your collection and pull out the tapes or CD's that will best accompany you on your travels. Perhaps a little Beethoven or Wagner for the long drive on the interstate. Or maybe some Sinatra for that overseas flight.

What is the soundtrack of your journey? And of course, every song has a story. What memories do those favorite musical strains conjure up? Perhaps they remind you of a previous trip, or a past romance. We want to hear what your favorite travel song is and why. Call or email us and share your travel tune. The number is 888-SAV-TRAV. That's 888-728-8728.
