It is very much a matter of economics, but your final point is not as much a matter or requiring businesses to accommodate smokers as it is many municipalities prohibiting businesses from accommodating smokers.  It's been a long time (if ever) since businesses were required to accommodate smokers; it was traditionally up to the business owners.  It no longer is in many places.

I don't care. I appreciate not having smoke in the hall, common areas, coming thru the vents, whatever. If someone on TripAdvisor says they got a nonsmoking room but that it smelled like smoke, that's a no-sale for me. So, finally, the market has decided that not a whiff of smoke anywhere is a better selling point than simply offering some non-smoking rooms. If you're really an advocate for free enterprise, well there you go. 

Long before it was common to have all-non-smoking restaurants, my coffeehouse was no smoking. Someone came in and said "I'll never come here!" and blew smoke into the room like the asshole she was. Everyone in the place laughed and shouted "Good!" And someone came along advocating for making all restaurants non-smoking by law. I said "what, and get rid of one of my biggest competitive advantages?" I had to explain to her that my competition all allowed smoking and a good portion of my daily traffic was from people who wouldn't go in those other places because of the smoke, then became loyal to us after a while.

Anyone have experience using online hotel booking services?

P's brother will be going to the show in July and is a smoker. There's no means of choosing a smoking room via the services I've looked at so far. You can choose this on the hotels' sites, but then you don't get the heavily discounted rates. Do I book the rooms and then call the hotel and request one of them be a smoking room?

I've got something similar,but I'm afraid he could accidentally pull the cord in his sleep.I'm looking for a small device that needs an indented finger push button that he can't accidentally activate by rolling over in his sleep and doesn't have the high frequency decibel thing.I just want a mellow beep that gets me up and on the run,not a freakout device.

 No biggie,I'm sure my Hellish life will involve social workers next week and I'll go over it with them I guess.

 I was just mulling the future over and was hoping someone who has been through this could share some experience.

Also-TY SFW-I've already looked into monitors but this request was more of the "you've got 90 seconds or he's braindead" variety(Pops,not me,I'm already there. {#Lol} ) type look see,the monitoring thing is a separate lurking type issue I'm looking into.Pretty much will have that covered,but that's more for keeping him under KGB surveillance rather than for the total meltdown emergencies.

 I barely got him last time and it was only because my friend heard his wheelchair(and Pops) fall.Coulda been my completest fail.

I'm letting our friend stay here because he works 18 hours a day and the drive time to his house is a 2-3 hour round trip,depending on traffic.His wife is a sweetie and is really concerned about Pops in a heartfelt way.

 I do want my guestroom back though so I can hear Pops during the bad times,but I can't boot someone I've known for 50 years outta there when he's got those babies to support.

  Pops won't be able handle the walkie talkie anymore due to palsy(old term) which was our emergency communication system.I also had a crappy secondary backup doorbell ringer wire tied to his walker,but the weird batteries are unreliable and don't hold up.

 I need something small that I can hang around his neck that is louder than a crackhead mofo without a dime and is louder than a CO2 beeper that he can(hopefully) push and get the troops(me) on the ball.

Anyone who has experience with this,chime in.

 Yeah,I could Google but I wouldn't be able to get a 2 day order in until Monday anyway.

Any first hand experience folks out there?

No experience with that but a baby monitor might be a good addition to whatever you set up. Like if you're out emptying the trash or something and he calls out thinking you're in the next room, you might still hear it with one of those. Ours was pretty crappy but it worked okay; I'm sure $50 would get a good (not so staticky) one these days.

Nah. It's not very bright, really, and depending on the scanner, it's hitting one area of the photo for maybe 1/10 of a second, probably less.
