I will be taking some time off G+ for a while and was wondering if anyone would be interested in owning and moderating this community.  It's turned into quite a solid community and I'd like to see it keep going.

No one?  This is what I will do.  I will randomly select new mods.  Maybe five.  If you are chosen, then congrats.  If you are chosen you don't have to do anything--you will simply have extra privileges that other members do not.  Though, it would be nice if you can remove spam when you see it.

Thanks much!

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly

Another staple of psychedelic music.  Keyboards, drums, and guitars come together to make a perfect masterpiece.

20 things you probably didn't know about 'National Lampoon's Vacation'

This is a fun read if you are a fan of the franchise and have five minutes.
While most of us have every line from "National Lampoon's Vacation" memorized, it turns out some of the behind-the-scene moments are just as memorable.

Final Omni Hotel Design

The article includes more details about the hotel, market, and preservation issues.

On regard to the Omni, I like it.  I think it's an attractive design.
Mayor Greg Fischer and Eddie Abeyta of the architecture firm HKS unveiled the final design for the Omni Louisville, and it's as dramatic as expected.

www.bizjournals.com

A must-do for both residents and visitors. My favorite part about crossing this bridge: the mood/atmosphere changes as you cross. First, the noises of a park complete with birds and kids playing. Followed by distant sounds of converging interstate highways with sweeping views of the very source of the noise. Finally, all sounds fade away to nearly nothing as if completely separated from the city... yet it's all still in full view... it's almost surreal and often eerily quiet. That silence can vary wildly as it is often broken by talking with the bridge is crowded, boats tooting their horn, music is piped to center-span speakers, or the occasional musician is playing a few tunes. It's all good. For exercise, spectacular views, eco-transport, or just to touch an endless amount of historic iron, walking this bridge is a must-do. Crossing at night, when the ever-changing, colored lights come alive, is a completely different experience than crossing in the daylight. For those who can't or don't want to cross, relaxing at the foot of the bridge as the sun sets and the bridge awakens to its dazzling glory is fantastic.

Decent buffet in its price range. GOOD: Selection, selection, selection. For a moderately-priced, all-you-can-eat buffet, you will not find a better, fresher selection. In regard to salads, the items available for crafting a salad here are plentiful and fantastic... I've yet to see better. Many buffets in town started off with a bang, but then quickly deteriorated. This national chain moved in to town several years ago and, in my opinion, is just as good as it was on day one. On a recent visit, I experienced and observed both friendliness and efficiency from many employees. BAD: It's a "corral" alright. The tables are packed tight--a little too close in my opinion. When it gets crowded, the risk of getting stepped on his high. I literally feel like I'm in a herd bumbling my way to the taco station.

Good: Atmosphere and dining environment is great at this chain restaurant... looks really cool in a Frank Lloyd Wright way. Cautions: I think most food is way overpriced. I think there are some great prices to be found, but most of it is padded well with noodles or rice making for a very poor value. Bad: Very slow service on my routine. The server apologized for the slow service but the explanation was a bit baffling because it appears this was his planned routine. He was waiting on tables in assembly line fashion... waiting for all tables in his section to be ready for the next stage in the dining process before engaging. If we were ready to order, we had to wait until all tables were ready to order. Unfortunately, I think this is one industry where the assembly line does not work well. I was not the biggest fan of this chain. The recent less-than-perfect dining experience was enough to pull my rating below average.

Good: I experienced great food and decent service at this location for the chain restaurant. Cautions: For Saturday dinner time, the place seemed staffed for off-peak hours on a Tuesday. I think the possibility was there for slow service, but the staff was managing to pull things off very well, IMO.

Good: * well designed coaster (Lightning Run) delivering more airtime than coasters twice its size * friendly staff * clean park * very scary free-fall ride (Fear Fall); you can't tell when the drop is coming * beautiful carousel * great assortment of rides for the kiddos * dining options for those seeking healthier dining options have expanded more in the 2015 season... still far from perfect... but certainly improved * great management of "loose articles" made available on rides (lowing temporary storage of items at the station while riding; some parts are prohibiting this altogether and I appreciate this park not following that trend) Bad: * capacity on Lightning Run: mfg. suggests 800 riders per hour, but my guess is that they are cranking out only 150 per hour; even a very short line may be an hour wait... it moves extremely slow * service very slow at most dining locations - lines are often long and move very slow

Good: I experienced great food and service on my visit. I thought the staff was very friendly. Caution: Parking--yikes! Not near enough space to handle mealtime rushes. Be prepared to park and walk or circle the lot for a while.

This place is an organic and fresh food mecca. If you can cook it, bake it, fry it, or just eat it raw, then you'll find it here. I'm sure nearly everyone will find what they need here, and if you don't need it, it's just fun browsing around to take it all in. Amazing place.
