    This is one lady who goes above and beyond shopping for the occasion at Home Depot!...Although the forklift did accidentally run her over a couple of minutes later.

    On another note, I think her coat matches Bud's LR carpet!

    The good news is no DUI because I flew in so I can drink like a fish.

    Worked tech support for a .org at a trade show in the Wynn almost this time last year. Constant complaints from said .org about the cost of the Wynn to host the show.
    Many of you may know, and I was surprised to hear, that the convention business is much larger in Vegas now (and for some time) than gaming. Confirmed this with several sources. Wynn is now building a second, and larger, convention facility. (Not Steve Wynn, as he was ousted from the property by his ex -- longer story.)

    I like architecture and those Wynn High risers are just plain BEAUTIFUL to me. I applaud the Designer or Design Co. .

    It looks like somebody said, "let's reverse all the blueprints and build another one", ok?. :pB)

    I can see the third one is designed like the other two. It looks like the shape on the left.

    They remind me of things (furniture and tables, and cars too) that are black with a chrome strip applied somewhere to enhance and contrast.

    I used to travel a lot and I'd marvel at all the cool high risers that I saw.

    Between cities, I'd look at billboards, power lines and trees for HAWKS and FALCONS. There are many hawks and falcons now since they banned DDT. There are even hawks in cities living off of squirrels and rodents. Peregrine Falcons in the BIG cities living off of pigeons too.

    I just saw an article that they're (Hawks) so prevalent, there has been an alert given out somewhere to be careful about outdoor pets under 10 lbs.. :#
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    That's a direct result of the banning of DDT. Took a while for the benefits to work their way through the ecosystem, but changing habitat & time have brought the raptors back with a vengeance. [EDIT: oops, that was already mentioned! Sorry! :p ]

    Dozens of eagles along the Connecticut River near us nowadays.

    We used to have a lot of Bald Eagles here in Wilmington NC. but that was probably 70 years ago.

    They have JUST started to show back up. They've been slowly coming back South. But lead poisoning is the major concern for a lot of birds of prey here of late. Here's a female Eagle who was rescued and cleaned of lead in her system over a long time.
    This was a day she was released back to the wild. She was HUGE! <3

    Speaking of Las Vegas:

    One of my favorite books below. Las Vegas where the Devil takes up residence for the end of the world.


    The 1978 fan favorite has been greenlit as a 10-episode event series for the streaming service CBS All Access.

    One of our beautiful tamed outdoor feral cats, who was only 5-6 lbs, used to love being on the roof. She disappeared about a year ago. She was sweet, very spunky and greatly missed. I strongly suspect she was taken by an eagle or owl, in part because her littermate, twice her size, is terrified of overhead bird sounds. I think he witnessed it. Here are the two of them on the front porch:

    Enough with the POLITICS!!!!

    I don't come here for that! There are lots of places where you can discuss politics, it's not appropriate in this venue.

    Thank you.
