    Greetings from Oxford.

    First trip to Vegas was back in 1981 and have my sixteenth trip planned and booked for March/April 2013.

    BJ player and enjoy a little VP as well.

    Love the city and have read this board for such a long time. Nice people around here and finally decided to join.

    I love Oxford. I worked for a company whose headquarters are in Begbroke. We stayed in Woodstock when we visited HQ and would frequently go to Oxford. I have fond memories of the Turf tavern and every time someone would visit for the first time they would talk about this secret pub, I would say, oh you mean the turf. Also dinner at Chang Mai was great. Woodstock is beautiful.

    Good times!

    I almost worked for them in the UK but got nervous about how little the money was. I regret letting money being the deciding factor because I loved the vibe.

    Anyway, welcome to VMB.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    Beach Crazy: well, 10 years is a long time to read this board without joining, but that's about the norm for me to get up and go. It's twelve years since our bathroom tap first leaked.:eek:

    johnvic: thanks for those kind words about my county. Glad that you have such fond memories of this part of the world. It has pretty much everything you could hope for, except perhaps the odd JB VP machine.

    sybgal: thanks. Our March 2013 trip will see us stay for 6 nights at The Mandarin Oriental. I'm not quite sure how the non casino idea will work in LV but that's my wife's preference. I'll be sure to search here to see if there have been any comments on the MO.
