SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2010GREETINGS FROM FABULOUS LAS VEGAS!
Here I am in Las Vegas, the Entertainmet Capital of the World. I flew here on WestJest. It was a 5 hour flight. WestJet has absolutely no frills. Everything costs. My husband and I are going to see Rod Stewart tonight at Caesar's Palace. I hope to have some good pictures to show you soon. We are going to the Grand Canyon on Tuesday. It's sunny and a bit cool here today. I still have to get accustomed to the 3 hour time change.
The name "Las Vegas" is Spanish for "The Meadows" or "The Grasslands." Spanish explorers named it after the grassland they saw along the destert streams.
The Toronto Argonauts were soundly defeated by Montreal Alouettes today in the East Division final today. Montreal won by a score of 48-17 before over 58,000 fans at Olympic Stadium. Well,, at least the Argos had a better season than expected. Too bad it had to end so disappointingly.
Montreal's hockey team beat our Toronto Maple Leafs last night. The Habs defeated the Leafs 2-0 at the Bell Centre. There was a great tribute to the late Pat Burns. It was very well done.
