Here are some more photos we took in Las vegas. It was a magical time seeing all the decor at the hotels.

We just returned from a weeks stay in Las Vegas. WOW. The city that never sleeps. We stayed at The Monte Carlo hotel. I have never seen such a busy place. Usually when you go to sign up for a room it does not take too long. Not here. The line up had about 150 other people waiting in line to get their room keys. The room is similar to a basic hotel room. I think you can upgrade to a more opulent room but we didn't know. I would have complained about the ice machine out of service all week, on our floor (about 100 rooms) but the line up for the concierge desk was always lined up. Nevertheless the people working there were very nice. We had a ton of fun in the casino. The complementary tickets we got from the airlines,West Jet, were the best. They were for the Cirque du Soleil show, Beatles Love. Words cannot express how great this performance is. MAGNIFICO!!! Karen and I were completely in awe. Wish we could have taken pictures but were not allowed. We highly recommend this excellant performance.

I was jusr about to start reading an old "Western" paperback book when this coupon fell out of the pages. It was probably used by the last reader as a page marker. I recognized this coupon because I saw them when they first came out in 1971. It is interesting to see that if you purchased $3.00 worth of fuel you would receive a coupon. When you had 4 coupons you would turn them in to get a 9 ounce "Old Fashioned" glass. WOW!! Three dollars of gas at that time was equal to about 10 gallons. Nowadays three dollars will get you about one half gallon. The times they are a changing.

Did You Know ?  A man's brain is 2% of his body weight and a woman's is 2.5% ? Is there a hidden meaning in this maybe?
