Departing for Denver

In Las Vegas at McCarran Airport awaiting the winged chariot to carry us home to Denver. It's been a wonderful few days. I didn't get as much done on some of my PHP projects as I should have but I'll catch up on the flight and at home tonight. Still have a broken knob on the fireplace so there will be no fire, but there will be dogs to keep the feet warm. I'm trying to upload pictures now but they keep stalling. Some pictures show Las Vegas as the city prepares for the New Year's celebration. It's been cold out west. The longer we stay the colder it gets. The song of the moment is Simon and Garfunkel's Homeward Bound. Less than two MB has transfered and it says it's getting all of 2.3KB/s.... pictures will have to wait until later. Otherwise I've been pretty impressed with the cell connection this trip.

On the unimpressive side is the Excalibur. The rooms are dilapidated, the buffet is out dated and the help is downright grumpy. Even a call to have the heater serviced after setting off the fire alarm was met with distain instead of the expected concern. However, the buffet at the Aladdin is highly recommended. Their salad selection was limited but their selection of well-prepared foods from around the world from sushi to shish-kabobs is impressive. The wait can be long I am told but it is great food.
