Communities I Manage (Stuff I Like)

Quotes I Like:

"You can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights" ~ Maya Angelou

"Determination is born out of purpose...knowing that you are gifted for something and this something must be attained. It is never enough to rely on luck or natural talent. You must, above all, believe in yourself, face your goals, and then fight as if your life depended on it"

Be who you are and say what you feel, cause those who mind.. don't matter.. and those who matter... don't mind... ~ Dr Seuss.

" It is what it is, it's not what it should have been, not what it could have been, it is what it is" ~ Nicole Kidman

"Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find it vanity;
but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, and make it possible." ~ T.E. Lawrence

"Progress is not made by early risers or hard workers, but by Lazy people trying to find easier ways to do the same." ~ Henry Ford

The Pyramid hotel in Vegas. Large, fun and lots of slots. But the rooms are small and likely will be part of the slanted pyramid experience. Good for a budget trip!

Large theatre righ tin the garden district. If you are coming here for an event check out the parking on Victoria st across the street. There is underground parking available which can help in the winter time.

A large airport as an alternative to New York. No wifi. Yes seriously. You can try and access it from outside the unite club lounge, but otherwise expect to pay for it.

This place is seriously in need of a decor update. The only had 1 type of beer on tap. We decided on the poutine for a quick snack. It came quick and actually the poutine was amazing. Good fresh crispy fries and fresh cheese curds and gravy.

Still allows smoking in the bar. Usually very busy and small. Patio section is nice but time to get with the no smoking program.
