Got a new job... and plane tickets to go on vacation in 4 months--what do I do?

I just accepted a new job and I start in 2 weeks... and I have plane tickets for a vacation in November that was planned months ago. How soon should I tell my new boss? (And should I have already?)

Find My Solitude

Solitude on the Atlantic Coast or Gulf of Mexico? I am looking to get away for about 4 days sometime this month for some R&R by myself. I would prefer to be by the water, away from crowds, maybe in a hammock or sitting by a pool. I will spend most of my time reading, writing, napping, and maybe walking. I wouldn't mind some healthy food. A massage would be a bonus. It could be at a hidden away resort, a cabin, or a spa. Price isn't really an issue. I would prefer to be within a few hours drive to a major airport. I am just looking for somewhere to chill out and find some much needed solitude. Where should I go?

Off-the-beaten-path things to do near Lewiston, Maine

I'll be spending next week with my wife in the midcoast region of Maine. (Just outside of Lewiston-Auburn.) She has family there, so she has spent plenty of time at all of the touristy things around. What off-the-beaten-path things can I suggest for us, within about an hour of Lewiston?

Evening sightseeing/photography in Philadelphia?

help me get my money back!

I got a piece of junk mail from a company called Florida Direct Vacations who said they were going to charge me $140 for some kind of vacation package if I didn't cancel the order by May 22. I think they got my credit card information from Holland America, who I took a cruise with a few years ago; they claim to be some kind of authorized reseller for them, although I've never done business with Florida Direct Vacations before. I called and canceled, and they charged my debit card anyway. I've called and they say they never got my cancellation and, basically, tough luck. What now? [more inside]

Quitting on vacation

I have a good job that's a little boring but a good opportunity. I recently scheduled all of my 2-week vacation at once to go to Europe, and I'll be leaving next week. An opportunity has come up to work over there for the next few months and it's really tempting. I had no idea this would came up when I scheduled my vacation, and when my boss jokingly asked me, 'you're coming back, right?', i said 'of course!.' [more inside]
