Vegas 2011...


Shots for breakfast Lou?  Oh well, it is Vegas. 

The MGM Lion

The lions inside MGM


Mirage-home of the Beatles show-awesome!!!!!! However, NO photos allowed even from the start, so none to share from the show.  Like the Beatles, go see this show when you are in Vegas, well worth the money.


Champagne and dessert, yum!

Wynn Waterfall-very relaxing

I hope your morning is going better than mine.  I'm headed to the chiropractor later this morning. I can hardly move my neck.  Yesterday while reaching for something over my head there was a small "pop" in my neck.  I stretched all day yesterday trying to get the nerve to un-pinch, but no luck.  So, off to spend some co-pay money, at least I have insurance.  I just need to be able to move my neck, remove the tingle from my left hand, get rid of this headache, oh and sleep through the night.  2 Tylenol PM's didn't do anything last night-grrrr!  Funny how a tiny little move can create such havoc.

Vegas, Again...

I know, but it's Vegas, loads to see.

 Bellagio Garden, Painting made from flowers--how fun!

 There were a few open bars...of course I took advantage and drank up.  An extra dirty martini--love those olives.

 Frank Caliendo.  I have a short video, but can't seem to get it to post here.

 Loved the fans by the pool at the hotel. I want a few of these in my back yard, along with the palm trees and the pool. hehehheee

 Fun Fountain

 Hard Rock...the one on the strip.

 The Jersey Boys....Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons.  Sadly, I knew almost every song.

 Lou enjoyed the fountain at Caesars.

Me, enjoying the open bar again, with a bit o' Champagane.

Vegas Pictures...

My lovely friend Ms. L had to attend a conference in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago.  Lou and I tagged along for the long weekend.

Let's start with our Posh Hotel.

 We stayed at the Encore. 

 Lovely room!

 Awesome soaking tub!

 A TV in the bath to watch while you soaked away your stress.

 Yep, the room continued...and this was not considered a suite.

 View of the hotel from the pool area.

 View of Trump Tower from our room.

 Looking down from our room a view of the pools.

 Lou with the Wynn Hotel in the background.

 Day view of the strip from the hotel.

Lush green golf course next to the hotel.

 The room, chilling out area.

The sign is too small in the blog picture to see, but Lou is sitting with the refreshment bar that was in the room. You could pick up an item to view it, but only for 59 seconds and then the item was charged to your room, same thing with the fridge stuff.  Needless to say, Ms. L and I didn't pick anything up...not when prices started at $9 for a small bit of candy.

The Hotel was great, but if you want to make your own coffee in the morning plan to stay somewhere else, no coffee makers in the rooms here, you can order two cups from room service for $9.  Also, if you plan to use the workout room, plan to spend $19 a day to use it.  I simply melted while walking on The Strip...good bad it all came back when I returned to OH-IO.

More Vegas pics to come--stay tuned.  I've been a bit busy, but will try to post a bit more regularly since I got a request to blog or bye-bye reader.

Happy Weekend Kids!

Lunchbox Museum...

Did you know that in Vinton County, Ohio there is a Lunchbox Museum?  There is! Now, I do NOT recommend a trip to Vinton County just to visit this museum, because it is a small room off of a not so great restaurant, but it is there.  I did visit once and I think once was enough.  Although some of the lunchboxes were quite amusing or good for mental time travel.

The official entrance sign-high tech!

Who doesn't love Pigs in Space?

Too old for me to remember, but fun boxes none the less.


Where is Ms. Ingalls Wilder?

Don't forget home.

I do believe I had a box very similar to this one.  I loved Blueberry Muffin!

He-Man!  I thought She-Ra was better, but of course she was the Princess of Power.  Did you know you can watch episodes on hulu?

They even had a few old toys.

How many of use born in the 1970's had one of these phones?  I know I did!


I apparently like the "!" today.  Sorry, I'm just amped I guess.  One Venti Carmel Lite Frappuccino for me thanks!  Yummers and only 220 calories!  Can we say-LOVE!  Happy weekend kids!

Going Through Flashdrives...

I've been trying to weed pictures I don't really need to be saved off of a few of my flashdrives.  I'm not sure why, I don't need the space.  I find I have difficulty deleting pictures, even if they are not good ones. I also seem to take a lot of pictures of similar subjects.

For one, flowers...

Of course you have seem many a pictures of's one more.

I take family pictures, but I don't post all of them, this is a older one, but a good one.

Sorry to those who may be fans...but we are Buckeyes!
