This is inside a beautiful gazebo in the Village at Centennial Springs. It's a real shame that the "cool people" had to deface it.

Yesteraday I was driving on west on Lone Mountain driving over the 95 freeway, as I looked to my right I spotted a few trees turning on #8 at Painted Desert Golf Course. Pretty view, it makes me miss golf, I haven't played in probably 7 years maybe it's time to dust off the clubs and get out and play.

This mini "Mack" is a tribute to UNLV's Thomas & Mack Arena as well as ex Rebel Coach Jerry Tarkanian "Tark the Shark".This tribute was part of the Hammargren's Nevada History Museum. Tark famous for the Ameoba defense, towel biting (as depicted in this rending above) and more importantly the 1990 NCAA Championship.
Later today the UNLV Rebel's have their season opener against San Diego. I can't wait, I'll be going to the game and will have some great shots for tomorrow's post!
This promises to be a great season, I've read conflicted reports about the Reb's ranking I've read 20, 26 and 27. Ranking is a key word here, the Rebels are ranked again! Coach Kruger has done such a great job with the program, I think this is his year. The Rebelution begins today at 2:3o.

These beautiful Calla Lillies were nearAliante's new Access Bar. The shade of this flower is close to the orange in the property's color scheme which also includes brown and green.
I got to thinking, I keep seeing this color scheme more and more. These colors and the crappy economy remind me of the 70's. (Atleast we don't have gas lines yet!)
Is there a parallel with color schemes and the economy? Am I on to something? Is history repeating its self?

I spotted these old school change carts while I was at Dr. Lonnie Hammargren's open house. Since the inception of coin less slot machines, these went the way of the dinosaur.
Our nation has elected a new President one who campaigned with a platform of change, lets hope it's not pocket change.

I snapped this photo on Sunday at Lonnie Hammagren's home where he houses his Nevada History Museum. I got some great shots there on Sunday which I will share with you this week as well as the story behind it.
Let's just get today over with. Who do you want to see win?

I've been thinking about things, and I've come up with this analogy...Strippers and Politicains are alot alike. Sounds crazy, I know but hear me out.
Tomorrow, as Americans we will get our long awaited "big" reveal, after enduring two years of teases we will have elected a new president. As many of you know Strippers and Politicians love money and are quite willing and happy to take your money. They will say and do almost anything to get your money. Which leads me to...
I just wonder if next April 15th we will be as excited when we have to give our money to the IRS. I know maybe instead of that box on the top of our tax return forms where they ask you if you want $1.00 to go the Presidential election campaign fund let's change the question to "Do you want to donate $1.00 to a Presidential Lap Dance fund?" check here.

So here's a photo of Stanley before, he got down to "business." I have to tell you with the way the things have been going, Stanley was a welcome distraction from all of our daily troubles.
