Day 2451 - Why crying is good for you

When was the last time you had a good cry?


I remember a friend once saying that she schedules her break-downs.  If she's feeling a little on edge or her resilience is low she actually schedules herself a crying session so that she gets it all out rather than drop her bundle in a "straw that broke the camels back" moment that takes everyone by surprise.
Genius.

Day 2450 - Solitaire

I think I might be addicted to solitaire.





On a recent flight to Singapore I started playing solitaire on the in-flight entertainment system.  I found it hard to sleep because I kept going back to wanting to beat the deck.

Day 2449 - Back to reality

What happens in Vegas ...


They say what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

For me, what happens in Vegas comes home with me.

Vegas means a hell of a lot of follow up now that I'm back.

Follow up combined with finger crossing, prayers, wishful thinking and creating positive vibes.

Day 2448 - Homeward bound

Brought to you from Sydney airport ...



This post is short but sweet.  I just want to announce that we're home from Vegas and feeding our faces at the Virgin Lounge at Sydney airport.

Day 2447 - Gilley's Las Vegas

I wanna be a cowboy ...

If you're in Vegas and you've got an inner cowboy or cowgirl just itching to get out, then head on over to Gilley's Saloon and Restaurant.

Day 2446 - The Lovin' Life Linky - The second Vegas chapter

What are you lovin' about life this week?


I'm still in Vegas so I guess there's plenty to love.

What I'm loving the most is not the travel or the frivolity or the sunshine or the resort, but the people.

Day 2445 - Peppermill Las Vegas - As Vegas as it gets

It's time to try something timeless.


Today I give you Peppermill Las Vegas which is advertised as "as Vegas as it gets".

Peppermill is a very traditional Vegas hang-out with affordable food, unique cocktails and a very retro interior that almost borders on tacky ... almost.

It's unique. It's iconic.  It's Vegas!

Day 2444 - The Marc Savard Show Vegas - Hypnotist comedian

Remember those "free" tickets I got?


We finally booked into the Marc Savard show with our "free" tickets.

Of course nothing is ever truly free and it did cost us $10 per ticket in booking fees plus $10 per ticket to upgrade to assigned front vision seating.

However, I am not complaining because without our "free" tickets (and the five hours of our life we'll never get back due to a time-share seminar) we probably wouldn't have experienced the hilarity and craziness of the Marc Savard show.

Day 2443 - Topgolf Las Vegas - the new Vegas hot spot.

Could you imagine a golf course on the Las Vegas strip?


No, me either, which is why MGM have created this multi-storey golfing range as a worthy substitute to a 18 hole course.
