Are...

  • Blue Martini is local hot spot in Vegas
    Wednesday night and the Blue Martini is jammed.  What would it be like if there were no recession?  It’s refreshing to see high heels, sexy dresses and crisp shirts.  You get so tired of the slobby tourists on the Strip with their shorts, sloppy T-shirts and sandals.  This is Las Vegas, for *** sakes! The Blue Martini, across from the Rave Movie Experience,...

  • Vietnam vs Iraq
    If you have ever had to write one of those essays about compare and contrast, you will get the gist of the Black Mountain Institute Panel Discussion on The Vietnam War in Light of Iraq. The panel of six scholars and authors contributed their personal insights into the two conflicts; similarities easier to expound than differences. Both qualify as huge political, military...

  • DJ for the greys
    If you are a little up in years but not so old you can’t rock n roll, DJ Ron provides some great dance tunes for your party. His specialty is music from the 40′s, 50′s and 60′s, so that gives you an idea by what I mean by years. He provided the dance music last night at a Valentine’s Dinner Dance in Anthem and I heard songs I haven’t...
