irwin-

I'll be sure to honk twice as we pass through Flagstaff tomorrow. Smile


Gigabit: Thanks for the honk. I assume that was you in the Maserati?

irwin-

We passed through town - well, around town - about 10:00 A.M. and it was snowing very hard.

Thankfully, we went with the SUV for this trip. Wink

So jealous. I sucked it up and applied online for next year's ticket lottery. I will be there in 2012 one way or the other. Have fun and I'll look for you on TV. Smile
Well I'm NOT in Paris. Had to turn down an offer this morning for a trip there leaving this weekend. Something to do with Easter plans with the family, blah, blah. Smile jk of course, I'm sure there will be other opportunities down the road, but it hurt having to say thanks, but no thanks. Frown

I suspect it is a great place to spend a few days irrespective of whether you were in Vegas or anywhere else.
Hilton Head - Ahhh, big exhale. Sitting on the deck with my coffee, listening to the birds and watching the golfers tee off. I'm already starting to unwind and relax.
The JW Marriott Marquis in downtown Miami - upgraded to a four-room 23rd floor corner suite overlooking the 19th floor pool and the bay, feeling like the guy who flies the helicopter that carries the cameraman who shoots the just-back-from-commercial shots on CSI Miami. Cool Cool Cool Love Marriottrewards...... Big Grin

The middle of OHIO. The in-laws say "Hi". The biggest redeeming factor is that the end of April is about as nice as Ohio gets.

But much more relaxed Wink
Left my sticks in HHI. We already had the Red vs. Orange conversation with the shuttle driver and thought of you. He bleeds Orange btw. Smile

Snipes, he is driving a shuttle for goodness sakes.. This means he has a post-grad degree from Stillwater. What else could he do with it? Razz

Oh, please know... it is Crimson & Cream! Red is reserved for that little college in Lincoln. Wink

My basement. The man cave is complete (pool table re-assembled and eco-fuel mini-fireplace installed). Other than hanging some pictures, the job is finally complete. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the renovation. Considering my limited budget and age of the home, it's definitely a step in the right direction. Now, I just have to have some people over and crack open a few bottles! Big Grin

Noted! Big Grin
W+A - not sure if you saw it or not, but I posted my buddies' recap of Dromoland on the Ireland thread. The usefulness may be limited given their focus but hope it helps...

I did indeed, thank you.

We enjoyed the Cliffs of Moher today.

I have a Dover sole tagged tonight for dinner, and will pick out a bottle or two worthy of such greatness.

Thank you. We are about to head out on the town for dinner, wine and?

Tomorrow...Galleries ! Cool
checking in from the costiera amalfitano. That is, the Amalfi Coast, in Italy. WE've been to Ravello, Amalfi, Positano, Raito, Vietri, Naples, Salerno and will be going to Pompeii tomorrow. Have had some local wines that are in the upper limits of tolerable. Today got served a carafe of sparkling still wine. It was not Prosecco, and was not tolerable. got replaced by red rather promptly. The other day, VP Biden and his wife were here at our hotel, but I didn't see them.
Have fun, irwin. I hope Vini da Gigio is in your plans. I look forward to reading of your experiences when you return.
Biden apparently was at a conference in <rome.< why he came down here for a 30 minute stop is unknown, at least to me.
Had a nice dinner tonight with pork, roasted in mixed salad, some lasagna stuffed with spinach, pork roasted in hazelnuts (which was terrific) and washed down with Aglianico 2007, a DOC wine, but I didn,t write down the producer. Sorry for the typing, but the keys seem to be in different places. I am looking forward to the trip to Pompeii.
Enjoy Pompeii, Irwin.

I have heard they have installed plexiglass over many of the fresco's recently due to vandalism. I hope this is not the case.

I also remember having to explain a few things after one of our visits with our children. Big Grin

Like Board-O, I look forward to hearing about your trip.
only plexiglass was over the dead pompeiians.
after a day on Capri, today we climbed up to the top of Vesuvius. tomorrow, on to Venice.
many details to follow.
If it's as hot in Venice as it is here, get to the Doge's Palace as early as possible, and take water and a handkerchief or towel for the sweat. Those upper floors are like an oven.

I have never seen 80 when in Venice, and rarely 70.

Have a great time, Irwin.


Today's temperature 68°F with a wee bit of humidity. Should be just fine. Enjoy, irwin!!

PH
We were on the top floor of the Doge's Palace in mid-July last summer. In one room with the guide for about 10 minutes, 2 people had to leave because of the heat. I had to wring out my handkerchief 5 times.

Oh, it was, indeed. Wink
made it home tonight.
I'll post a detailed report in a bit, but quickly, I must thank Board-O for his suggestions. The hotel was great and we did go to one of the restaurants he suggested.
Venice is a terrific place.
More in a day or so.
Welcome back, bud. Sounds like you had a great trip. I look forward to your notes. Regards to Mrs. irwin.
