    Hello everyone,
    I am not exactly new. I stumbled on this small chatroom that seem different than the rest after my first few trips to LV. I was the 130th member and I think it was October 2000. I didn't make it to LV this year, due to a 2.5 year divorce and the loss of home and business properties. The good news is that when you are homeless, you really learn who your friends are! Secondly, you also learn to appreciate the many things that we take for granted as we go through life.

    I have a home and am doing well now, somewhat retired and planning my 21st trip either in November of this year or my usual feb/march trip. I was surprised to see that Southwest Airlines is already accepting reservations into march of 2016 already.......must be doing well with fewer flights and cheaper aviation fuel and prices that are a bit higher than they used to be. Hotels too seem less expensive til you figure in the resort fees and tax......I guess I have to do my homework. I will try to get caught up and up to date in the wealth of information available here. I hope all is well and that most of my old colleagues are still here and contributing.

    I imagine I will notice a lot of changes, having missed a year and sadly talked to a friend who was somewhat disgusted with all the people dressed ridiculously downtown, hoping to get a tip for being in a pic with you. This was one of the last issues that I recall being discussed here when I was an active participant.

    It's good to be back and I hope I can contribute again in a positive way!
