Happy Holidays

I'm getting ready to spend 4 days with my favorite daughter (but, Mom, I'm your only daughter) and most of our planning is around food. We know we'll eat out once or twice and sushi will be one of those meals. We also want to make some food at home.

Happy Bellagio Days

This weekend Cheryl and I went to see the holiday display at the Bellagio. As usual it was beautiful. After walking around the displays we went back outside to watch the fountains. This has to be the best free show in Las Vegas. In fact, even better than some you have to pay for. If you go here and click on the video tour you too can watch them. It's a nice video but I think the Bellagio should have a live cam.

If you come to Las Vegas over the holidays, the Bellagio is a must see destination.

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Happy Birthday Mom

If my mom were alive, she'd be 92 today. She was born on December 7, 1917 in Niagara Falls, New York and she died September 21, 1998 in Las Vegas, Nevada. I don't think my mom and I were close in the same way my daughter and I are close but I know that she loved me unconditionally and I loved her. She was as good a mom as she could be and I have so many great memories of times with her. She and my brother and I share a history that no one else does.
