thanks to all. i saw the sun in vegas! unusually good weather over the 4 days. van morrison was awesome & cirque du soleil "ka" was excellent. got home late last night & work wasn't happening today, haha. paying the piper today. mandalay bay resort in vegas has always been good but hey have stepped up their game. still some stigma from the shootings last year. not the hotel's fault. they do have a michael jackson statue in the lobby for their cirque mj show. i'm wondering if it's going to get the saddam hussein treatment after last week's revelations. overall good getaway.
