Dude, you need to get out more. Polish your boots and put on the rope tie,
and hit the highway into town.

Now you can play iTunes and surf the 'net and write your memoirs all at the
same time, and switch over to Pinball while waiting for the next breakdown
of writer's block.

We bought 128M flash drives back when they were new. I remember they were
$20-ish, now they are free to the first 200 shoppers on Saturday. These
things have really come down in price and gone up in capacity. You'll be
back to upgrade those 4G flash drives you just bought, and find they are the
Saturday morning give-aways. They are going to prove to be very useful, and
the Real Estate business you have going will probably claim them.

Welcome to the '90s.

I was stationed at Nellis from 74 to 77, and have been back to vist the
bright lights exactly three times. Once with another couple for a weekend,
once with my wife and two very small kids -- we stayed for a week and hit
the water slide, dam, and the Medevil Knights dinner show -- and the last
time was on the one-year anniversary of 9/11 -- that was a very moving
experience. We like the lights and attractions, but not the gambling so
much.

I've been up to St. George and Cedar Grove (Cedar City?) and around the area
by Zion. I could live there. Me and an Air Force buddy went camping at Lake
Navajo the Friday after the campground with the cabins closed, the guy would
not rent us cabin so we had to sleep in the car. I tried sleeping on the
ground with two sleeping bags, but the falling snow made that a not-so-fun
experience. Curling up in the back seat was not much better, but there was
less wind.
