One more thing - I did a switcheroo on the vacation plans (7 phone calls later) and got the same 2 Vegas Hotels (mirage & flamingo) for 7 days for $85 Total Cost.

Thanks for the cheesecake and See's! I got a See's catalog in the mail recently and I sat there and practically drooled! I could actually taste them!

You're right about taking health for granted. I mean, I was always thankful I had my health, but I didn't know that everything would start falling apart when I hit 40! I felt like everything would just go on like always! Live and learn!

Let me get this straight, you are staying in Vegas for 7 days and it is costing you $85???? Where are you sleeping? On the baccarat tables?

Sadsack #1 checking in...Can I have a banana popsicle?

Actually, I'm better somewhat. I took a bunch of stuff which I never do because I hate taking pills -- decongestants, antihistimines, ibuprofen, Cold-Eze...I can't remember how to spell my name or what my address is, but I do feel better.

Every hotel we stay at, we sign up for players' cards. They are free, but it's the hotel's way of seeing who plays there. It also gives them your address and email address. Each time you play at a slot machine, you put it in, and it gives you points. You play at a table, you get points. These points can either be used for goodies (say, a Luxor Sweatshirt, or a Caesar's Palace hat...), cash (well, actually a check made out to you, which you cash at their cashier - last time they gave me $40 as I was leaving!) or you can use it for free food in their restaurants.
Then, about 2 weeks later, you start getting these lovely glossy ads in the mail...if you utilize one of the ads (which will usually give you a $190/night room for $89, then they bump you to the next level (or if you've played quite a bit).
I usually get the "3 comp nights + a free dinner for 2 + all spa usage" from Mirage, and Flamingo usually gives me 2-3 free nights + buffet for 2. Any time you use one of these offers, they'll tack on additional nights for a lowered rate.
So, I'm getting 3 free Mirage days + 2 free Flamingo days + 1 Flamingo reduced day = $85. 6 nights, 7 days.

If you ever are considering a Vegas Vacation do this now:
1. go to each major (on the uptown part of the strip) casino's site and register for their emails.
2. Call me and tell me when to meet you there.

Holy crap. I am going there to register right now. The "all spa usage" thingy totally sold me.

H got an hour long deep tissue massage followed by a sauna and whirlpool last time, while I used the gym facilities (we all know that's my favorite!)

<<Putting White Chocolate Macadamia coffee into the coffee maker, setting the auto-timer>>

There should be enough for everyone to have at least 2 cups tomorrow morning.
I've put in the cool rise brioche rolls in the frige, so whoever comes in first, please bake them till they're golden!
Thank you!

Good night my friends!
