VIVA LAS VEGAS ... ?

                             

I've just arrived at Lake Las Vegas -- a resort area "sculpted from the rugged desert terrain of Southern Nevada" -- where I'll be in meetings for the rest of the week.  Not surprisingly, there's something "fake" about Lake Las Vegas.  First of all, it's not in Las Vegas.  It's 17-miles away, which in Nevada can mean the difference between being in the thick of things or the middle of nowhere.  Secondly, it's not really a lake (it's a "man-made body of water.").  Oh, well ... Maybe if I'm lucky I'll run into our notorious "One-Eyed Bandit."  Better him than a One-Armed Bandit, I always say ...!

My oh my, you sure do get around! Would be fun to have a job like that. You must never get your suitcase unpacked!! I have enough problems packing, unpacking and repacking twice a year as we do!  Barb

I'm told it's the law in Nevada that you can't mix hot foam with ice...thus no dry iced cappuccinos with non-fat foam in Nevada...Sorry.  Mel B.
