Election signs in New Hampshire. I just registered Di to vote today!


New Hampshire



The Strip in Vegas from the plane when we were leaving


BumbleBee at the CES show.

We just got back to Toledo after a whirlwind 24 hour visit to Vegas. I had set up a work meeting with a guy at the consumer Electronics Show (CES) - a HUGE event held in Vegas every January. So while I spent the day there, Di hung out at Tahiti (out hotel).

That evening we spent our time walking up and down the strip and looking around in the casinos. While I had been a little skeptical, I now agree that it's definitely worth giving Vegas a visit at least once in your life.

We went and saw the Cirque Du Soleil show 'KA' at the MGM Grand Casino. It was simply the most astounding thing I've ever seen... it's a little hard to describe really. Everything, from the theatre, to the stage setup (involving multiple massive platforms that were manipulated into every imaginable position while the performers were defying death on them), to the insane things those performers do, to the costumes and beautiful lighting - was amazing. It seemed weird to step out of the show and back into the real world (well, it was Vegas, so it wasn't really 'real). It was as if this thing we had just experienced should be headline news around the world... but no one seemed to care. *Sniff...*

Now we're REALLY back in the real world. Toledo! Had lunch at Tony Packos cafe today - of MASH fame. Good Hot Dogs and a very entertaining ordering process. I would say, "I'd like a Hot Dog ple..."
"HOT DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG!!!!!!!!!!!" the server would reply.
