The Florida House of Representatives have recently announced that they will be voting in favour of a bill that forces all holiday property owners to ensure that their properties are 'left handed accessible' A commission investigating several hundred complaint’s from left handed people stating that a growing number of property owners were systematically discriminating against them by only supplying 'Right Handed' facilities throughout their properties.
A leading human rights lawyer commented that the blatant discrimination of 'Left handed' renters is a direct infringement of their human rights. Analysts have predicted that the conversion from 'Right Handed' to 'Multi-Handed Options' could cost home owners tens of millions over the coming years.
Property owners were said to have been heavily criticised for not providing even the most basic products such as left handed teapots, door keys and toilet rolls. One disgruntled left handed renter complained “When we arrived at his rental property we were given a right handed door key, I was unable to operate the key, it was a complete nightmare, my family were tired and all I wanted was to get inside…after struggling I had to wait over 2 hours while a right handed employee from the management company to arrived to let me in…I have never felt so helpless!
The Bill is set to be signed on 1st April 2010 – Property owners need to contact their management companies immediately to ensure they comply with the guidelines.

### April Fools! ###
Universal Orlando has confirmed via the official Web site for its Wizarding World of Harry Potter attraction (www.universalorlando.com/harrypotter) that its grand opening will be June 18.
According to a post on Harry Potter fan site The Leaky Cauldron, June 18 is the official grand opening date for the Wizarding World, but not the first time the park will open to the public; it states that guests who booked a package advertised for May 28 will likely be able to experience the new “theme park within a theme park” set at Universal’s Islands of Adventure.
A press conference last September presented several features of the Wizarding World to the public for the first time, including its centerpiece, the Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey attraction, touted as something “never been done before”. At that time, Universal Orlando gave an opening date of Spring 2010.

A long flight is probably one of the most boring things and uncomfortable things you can choose to do. However there are a few things you can do to make this chore a little more bareable - here are a few tips for staying comfortable and fresh during a long flight;
Check which kinds of seats your airline offers. Sometimes the seats differ even within the same class. British Airways for example offers seats in economy class that give you access to a power outlet and a little bit more legroom. Many times you do have to pay a bit more for that, but if you need to work during the plane ride or you know you will stay awake it may be worth it.
Bring some magazines or a good book with you. Reading is a great way to absorb time.
Bring your own food if at all possible. You can purchase some snacks at duty free or bring some from home. Make sure that they will get through airport security. Many airlines now promise great food, but the reality is that even then airplane food at its best is quite bad.
The air in planes is extremely dry. Make sure to keep yourself very well hydrated, and take eye drops with you. The small travel size ones, when carried within regulation (in a small Ziploc bag) should not be a problem.
Make sure you bring a toothbrush or those handy brush-ups. If it is not possible, at least some mints. Nothing is worse than sitting next to someone with bad breath.
Bring a packet of handy wet wipes. It’s a quick and extremely easy way to refresh yourself.
When it is safe to stand up, make sure you do so. This helps improve your circulation.
Check how empty (or full) your flight is. With some luck, you may be able to move to an empty middle row in which you can stretch and sleep.
Now before you go through the bordom of a flight its probably a good idea to get your accommodation sorted before you get to the other end - and what better place to start your search than right here at Bargain Villas
Happy St Patrics Day Everyone!
As millions of people all around the world prepare to celebrate Irelands most famous Saint here are a few interesting facts about St Patricks Day;
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, although he was born in Britain, around 385AD. His parents Calpurnius and Conchessa were Roman citizens living in either Scotland or Wales, according to different versions of his story.
Until the 1970s, St. Patrick's Day in Ireland was a minor religious holiday. A priest would acknowledge the feast day, and families would celebrate with a big meal, but that was about it.
On any given day 5.5 million pints of Guinness, the famous Irish stout, are consumed around the world. On St. Patrick's Day, that number more than doubles to 13 million pints, said Beth Davies Ryan, global corporate relations director of Guinness.
The St. Patrick mythology includes the claim that he banished snakes from Ireland.
Birmingham holds the largest Saint Patrick's Day parade in Britain, which is said to be the third biggest parade in the world after Dublin and New York.
The first St. Patrick's Day parade took place not in Ireland, but in America, when Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through New York City on March 17, 1762.
But Dont be fooled into thinking that St Patricks day is all Irelands is about. A holiday in Ireland allows one to experience a culture deeply steeped in history. Ireland's history is reflected in the warm hospitality, underrated delicious traditional Irish food and drink, brilliant Irish folk music, and beautiful landscape. Whether enjoying a morning breakfast at a guest house in Dublin, downing a pint or two in a pub in Belfast, experiencing the local artists of Kerry or Cork, or hiking along a seaside cliff on the Dingle Peninsula, it is hard not to feel a part of the dramatic culture of the country's people and the rich history that is Ireland.
