    Phone is giving me grief.:cry:
    We've got a lot more pics and things to talk to you about but I'll have to wrap it up til
    we get back to the house tomorrow.
    Pics are on my phone and I'm writing from the iPad.

    Up and ready to head out. A final summary and more pics when we get home. To everyone still with us on this odd-yssey, let me leave you this morning with a TRUTH:

    "Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas...with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether."

    Mahalo.

    Curious what the upgrade charge was to the Terrace Suite?
    We stayed in one in June (albeit on a weekend) and it ate up about $300 worth of backend comps...

    My Cosmo offers usually cover a Studio or a One Bedroom (although this last trip, they covered a Terrace Suite).

    If it doesn't cover a Terrace Suite, I get a quote for upgrading and do it when I book.

    I've gotten upcharged between $100 - $120/night midweek and between $200 - $250/night for a Friday night.

    Curious about the milk thistle... How does it help hangovers and, more importantly, does it work?

    Curious. When you played this machine did you have to 'Concentrate...concentrate...concentrate?' Did you have to 'Concentrate...concentrate...concentrate. Hello...hello...hello? Echo...echo...echo! Pinch hitting for Pedro Borbon, Manny Mota...Mota...Mota..."

    Sorry.

    We're baaaaaaaaaaack...home. Sad to be out of Vegas but happy to know we had a good time.
    Gotta take care of the animals, pick up the furballs, do laundry, etc.
    I'll be finishing the report up in about an hour or so...I promise.
    Some fun stuff happened last night and we want to share.
    Lots of pics too.
    I see some of you guys asked questions so let me try to answer quickly before
    I start doing the household stuff...

    100 a night and got taken off with comps. Worth it to us but everybody's mileage and budget varies. :peace:

    It isn't so much a hangover cure as to help prevent. As long as you drink plenty of non-alcoholic beverages in between the drinks...eat decent food,
    all the stuff we already know.
    It helps the liver process the toxins and flush them out when we're compromised from having one too many.
    I'm not endorsing it...I just know it works for me and got it from folks I've known who visited Vegas for years and swear by it.
    Take a quick Google search for it and you can make that choice for yourself. :)

    Duh! Of course.....and don't call me Shirley! :thumbsup:
