What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas...

...which can be a good thing.
Las Vegas is not really my kind of city. Although, I am a huge fan of neon, I do not do well in crowds--especially, crowds who are smoking or drinking or gambling--or all three. I don't think there are enough Bio-Cell chips for me to wear to offset the EMF's in Vegas.

However, there are good things about the city. My colleague, Rev. Doug has his church here. Hmmm, that may be all I can think of for now.

This was a working trip for me. The United Clergy of Religious Sciencr (UCORS) cabinet met here to plan next year's events. Rev. Doug booked us hotel rooms and we met at his church for our meetings.

Now, if a San Diegan is lucky and shops around, you can get unleaded for $2.29-$2.35 a gallon. GULP. Henry Honda now costs about $35.00 a tank to operate. And I have cut back on my infrequent indulgences in premium just to give Henry a lift.

Health scare of the week: It was not good news …
