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.

35K and going

Good Morning from 35,000 feet. I love morning flights across the Rockies. First the airport is empty when you arrive so the trip through security is much faster than later in the day. Once you leave the ground the air has not yet had the time to heat unevenly so the chances of turbulance in the air are greatly reduced. Finally there are beautiful sunrises like this morning. The clouds to the east of the Rockies were packed in tight. Like a knife edge the mountains cut the clouds and the only vestiage of such a complete carpet on the western side was a hazy morning dew. (I didn't bring the CF reader with me in the cabin so the picture will have to come later).
