Re: Hotel Customer Behaviors Towards Sustainability

I must not be a millenial, as this is the definition that came to my mind:
noun
the ability to be maintained at a certain rate or level.
"the sustainability of economic growth"

Re: Railway Crossing Safety

Stop Look Listen .... common sense for any RR crossing. Safety is our own responsibility.

Surely the HSL will be properly controlled at crossings.

Re: Returns, Refunds & Exchanges

Lucky so far, and only vendor that was a problem, and my last choice to use, Global House. All the rest, chains have been very good. Same with my online 'go to' vendors.
