My feet are fine, but my head is throbbing.

Pat, in a half hour the lights should come back on, what a difference it will be!

After my visits in October and March, what I would REALLY like to see happen on Las Vegas Boulevard is banning all music blaring out of casinos and open bars (except for the music which accompanies the fountain shows). We couldn't even carry on an extended conversation walking down the strip. The music was so loud in some of the casinos that my ears are still ringing, and that's no lie. It was just too much overstimulation. I love the visual, but adding the auditory confusion drove me crazy most of the time, especially when there would be 2 or 3 bars in the same casino blasting competing music. All I wanted to hear was one song played at a reasonable level and the ding...ding...ding of my winning slot machine, LOL. And it's not related to my "advanced" age. I had conversations with people of all ages who were annoyed by the increased volume that has become the new normal and the fact that so many casinos blared music from multiple sources.

Wow, that's incredible. I wondered if they were going to do that.

Thanks Jess! :)

If you watch the Bellagio web cam, in the next few minutes, it should be fun to watch the lights come back on.

Last year, same time, I was sitting in the hot tub atop of the Polo Towers. I watched the strip power down, then the stars!! Amazing to witness the stars in the sky on the strip. Then, slowly, the city started powering up, building by building. Amazing! Thanks to the Polo Towers security that let us stay in the roof top hot tub after hours!
