Phone of the Day: Nobody Home
Following the “nice” payphone from the Houston airport comes today’s phone of the day…Ring ring, no one’s home.

Today’s phone of the day is a relic photo I’ve dug up from a conference I attended in Orlando in 2011. I stayed at the Peabody, a swanky hotel, that provided accommodations for us during the conference. It seemed like a great hotel and I was assuming great things (it’s quite a nice hotel) and ...
