    BOSTON -- A Peabody woman says a cupcake she tried to take on a flight with her sparked a potential security threat this week.Rebecca Hains says she was going through security at the airport in Las Vegas when a TSA agent pulled her aside and said the cupcake frosting was “gel-like” enough to constitute a security risk.

    Yeah the airports are just killer nowadays. I got pulled aside for having pins in my hair that were metal. (Extravegant hairdo = a LOT of pins]

    Heh, I've had my chest felt up by the TSA agents several times...I guess in case I'm hiding bombs in my boobs. They actually put a probe in my son's bottle full of BREAST MILK. Thankfully we're usually there just to drop my daughter off...I really hate paying them for what feels a lot like pointless harassment.

    I know the whole argument is..."it keeps us safe"....but really it creates more fear.
    On the bright side though, they have adjusted their methods enough to allow babies to keep their shoes on. XD

    I'm so glad I got a new car that gets 40 mpgs, we will be driving to Florida for spring break instead of flying. Just hope that the 22 hour drive with my 6 yr old daughter doesn't send me to the loony bin

    I'm sure we will make it. We did 10 hours to TN in October, I think we were about 30 miles from home when the "are we there yets" started

    We plan to leave at her bedtime and drive through the night so at least the first 12 hours will be quiet

    When my sister went to Europe a few summers ago she had bought a most delicious jam in Germany or Austria (somewhere around there) and they made her open her suitcase and when they saw it they confiscated it (or was it her carry on?) Anyhow they said it was over the limit so they took it. She was really mad because the jam was amazing. They must have enjoyed it though. ;)
