Blue Dog

Blue Dog

Unveliebable that someone would put a dough through this. Poor Dog was shaking. I wonder if it was from cold or from the humilliation.

DEBRA-Everybody Loves Raymond

What is it about this image or picture of Patricia Heaton that everyone is searching for?. I have clicks from Turkey, England and a few other places where that is the image or picture they are searching for.

On another Note.
The NBA All Stars event was a fiasco.
Half Hour to an hour wait for cabs at the Thomas and Mack (Where the main game was).
Traffic Jams all throughout the Strip.
Employees also waiting a long time to leave their places of employment.
Metro (Police) Really busy with gang activity around town. A couple of shootings around town and not as much $$$$$$$$ for the casinos as expected.
So we may never get our NBA team after all.

Yes, it is going to be a very busy weekend here in Las Vegas.
Lady Liberty(New York Casino) and the Golden Lion(MGM Grand) are sporting East and West Conference T-shirts respectively to welcome fans into town.
There are so many events happening around the big Big Game on Sunday; private parties at the major night clubs, charity events hosted by the "Wives of the NBA" and much more that is happening at Mandalay Bay and The Palms.
The Palms owners (The Maloof Brothers) are also the owners of The Sacramento Kings. They were a major force behind getting the NBA to come to Las Vegas. The NBA's previous stance on gambling, which was never to allow a basketball team (pro) in a gambling town has recently softened and now there is talk that maybe the town will get its own NBA team.
It won't be easy, we have such a transient crowd and I am note sure that the average Joe is going to be shelling out hundreds of dollars a night to take a family to see the game, unless the tickets are being "comped" by the hotel or casino.
Also, who is going to build an arena, big and flashy enough for a an NBA team? I doubt the State or local tax payers will foot the bill.
Until then, we'll just watch from the sidelines and think of a name.
Las Vegas.....(Any suggestions?

The trip to L.A. was great.
We stayed close to Pasadena again. The first night we could not get reservations at the usual place (Sheraton), so we ended up staying in Eagle Rock, not bad. The next day we went to Venice Beach for breakfast, walked around observing the strangeness of it all and from there we headed to the Tar Pits and Museum on La Brea. We drove a lot throughout the day and visited several restaurants.
Having lived there for about 14 years makes it easier to get back and appreciate the city for all that it has to offer. You don't have to be from out of town to go into other neighborhoods and act like a tourist.
Traffic is just as bad as before, so when I sit in traffic here in Vegas, I laugh at those who complain about "traffic"
Melissa truly enjoys the experience of being out of Las Vegas. She is like a little girl in a candy store. For her, it was painful to leave, then again L.A. is just a mere 3.5 hour drive.
If you like and love sushi, do not go to Tokyo Wako on Paseo Colorado. The food indeed is Waky and nasty. Rolls that come apart when you pick them up, thick unshaped slabs of fish for sushi. Not a very good place for sushi, maybe Teppan but it seemed to cater to the masses.
Jakes Billiard an Pub is still there, that was highlight of the trip.
Q's billiard is no longer there, it was replaced by Boston Beanery...typical sports bar.
Pictures to be posted later.

Or not the right kind of news.
Astronaut wanted to kill her "rival"
What are you willing to do for the "love of your life"?
I think this story tops the Jeniffer "Wilbananas" story of last year, the Run Away Bride. My grand father would have said "Crazy Biatches."

Also- The Mars Candi company is not ging to play the Men Kissing commercial that they played during the Superbowl. Come on people, It's a commercial and it is funny!
The priorities of some people....... Makes me think.

Priest beats woman, then runs away only to be caught by police later. When is the Catholic Church (Vatican) going to see the light?

That is some of what is happening here in the States. What is happening in other parts of the world, you know already. The worse being, Iraq. As we say in Mexico, "Del Sarten, al Fuego". "From the pan and into the fire." The carnage will not stop until Bush is out of office, or Congress forces him to get the troops home. It is possible.

Melissa and I are going to L.A. for the weekend. We needed to get out of town. It's been work and work for the last few months. Aside from time with family during the holidays, it is time for just the two of us. We are going to play "tourists" in L.A. I lived there for a long time so it will be easy to get around. Looking forward to a weekend of fun.
See you in L.A.!
