Bring on the Vegas Good Times, Baby!

I am going to Vegas to see the man himself--that's right--you guessed it--DON RICKLES! Rickles has always been one of my favorite comics ever. One of my very first performances was an improv thing I did during some hazing activities that I had to go through as a Pledge at Theta Chi, the Animal House-like fraternity I joined in 1978 while attending San Jose State. We had to play a character, so I did Rickles and improvised big-time, just off the top of my head. It was a big hit and made me realize that I could probably one day make a living as a standup comic, which never really happened, but it's a nice story, isn't it? Anyway I am going to Vegas, baby--and taking advantage of some great deals on Las Vegas hotels

I Want to Travel!

I want to be the purist tourist. As my travels are about to unravel as I put down the gavel and judge for myself the best travel deals out there on the market today, all I can say is that maybe I will go to Chile or possibly Philly, or to Rome...or I'll hit the unknown. I could go to Spain, but then it might rain. Or I could visit Europe and be the ultimate tourist. Whatever I do, both me and my honey, we're going to get a travel deal and save us some money. Italy? Antarctica? Norway? Taipei? Where will we go? We don't even know!! (stay tuned)
