Things I Know

  • The Rockettes’ annual Christmas Spectacular at Radio City Music Hall begins today.  I guess that really kicks off the holiday season.

  • The Aston Martin DB5 from the James Bond movies sold at auction for $4 million.  You know, it’’s the one with the ejector seat and all the cool weapons.  Since I don’’t have $4 million, I’’m trying to figure out how to install missiles and machine guns on my 1991 Corolla. 

  • I took two long airplane trips in the last week.  I didn’’t want to go anywhere, but I had an overwhelming desire to buy something useless from Sky Mall.  Then I found out that Sky Mall has a website.

  • They have Mexican Coca Cola that’s made with sugar, not corn syrup.  I knew that.  My son says he’s had some and he prefers it.  I learned in Las Vegas at an Albertson’s supermarket that they also have Mexican Pepsi like that.  The bottles are shaped differently too.  I just didn’’t try it.

  • The day they allow people to chat on cell phones while the airliners are in the air will be the same day that cell-phone suppositories come into universal use.

  • It seems odd to me that there’’s at least one reality TV show that takes place in Las Vegas.

  • I’’m not going to give away the ending, but in the “Cirque Du Soleil Zumanity” show, they have a contortionist who can do pushups while on his back.  Just watching the guy made me think I’’d need another shoulder operation and I’’ve already had three.

  • Somebody needs a dictionary.  The top ten floors in the hotel where I stayed are labeled penthouses.

  • To be tourist friendly, the Las Vegas strip area could stand a few more street signs.  One thing I’’d like to know is which streets cross Las Vegas Blvd at street level and which ones go over or under it.  Another, is that all the properties should have their building address displayed.  I can find the casinos without building numbers.  It’’s locating stores, restaurants, etc. that’’s a problem.

  • The big, destination resort casinos on the Las Vegas strip have so many things, but I couldn’’t find one with an indoor pool.
