Celebrating 10 years with WordPress!

According to a notice from WordPress last week, we’ve hit a milestone: 10 years of blogging, 736 posts! And what a great decade it has been!

Picture Perfect: Christmas 2012 at Bellagio!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

If there’s a more lively place at nighttime than Las Vegas, we just haven’t been there (although Shanghai’s Bund comes close)!  It’s “lights on” everywhere — from the dancing Bellagio fountains to the uplighted Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas to the brown turned gold Wynn facade. Nighttime draws people to The Strip where people watching and picture taking […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

A Word a Week Challenge: Metallic

When I saw the Word a Week Challenge for this week with the word METALLIC, I remembered something that caught my eye this past January. I was driving from the Las Vegas Strip on I-15 to a school in Clark County, Nevada, one morning when the sun glinted off a building near the World Market […]
