Looking at Various Hotels on the StripSunday, September 23, 2012
Alan and I spent two days walking up and down The Strip checking out the hotels.  So many new ones since I was last here!  We had fun but after awhile, a casino is a casino no matter how it is wrapped.  They sure spent lots of money making things pretty.  The most elegant hotels we visited were the Bellagio, Monte Carlo, the Wynn, Ceasars Palace and the Venetian.  I hope to visit Europe again to explore the real thing.  We were in Vegas to see Cher and we enjoyed her show.  We also enjoyed the Crazy Horse Paris cabaret show at the MGM,  Alan loved this show.....could it be the perfect bodies of all the nude girls!  We had a good vacation and I finally got to see Cher live!

Hoover Dam & The Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial BridgeMonday, September 17, 2012
As a teenager my family and I spent lots of time in Las Vegas with friends so we drove over the Hoover Dam many many times.  It was exciting to see the new bypass bridge, kind of a short cut.  We parked and walked up to the bridge, reading all the plaques along the way, then walked on the bridge to see the views and take lots of photos.
Hoover Dam, formerly known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between Arizona and Nevada.  It was built between 1931 and 1936, during the Great Depression.  Over a hundred souls were lost during construction.  President Roosevelt dedicated the dam on September 30, 1935, about two years ahead of schedule.  The purpose of the dam is to supply power, flood control, water storage, regulation, and recreation.
The Mike O'Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is an arch bridge in  that spans the Colorado River between the states of Arizona and Nevada.  As early as the 1960s, officials found the US 93 route over Hoover Dam to be dangerous and very curvy road with heavy traffic.  In March 2001, the federal government choose a site about 1500 feet downstream from Hoover Dam to build a bypass bridge and construction began in February 2005.  The bridge was completed in 2010, and  opened on October 19, 2010.

Cher Concert at Ceasars PalaceMonday, September 17, 2012
I never missed the Sonny and Cher Show growing up, I loved the comedy and music but most of all I loved Bob Mackie's designs that he did for Cher. Bob designed for many other woman entertainers as well, including Ann Margaret, Carol Burnet, Mitzi Gaynor, Diana Ross, Barbra Streisand, and more. As a young woman I dreamed of designing clothes as beautiful as Bob's .  Getting to see Cher live and to see her costumes was amazing.  I have always admired her for being an honest person.  Alan was not as impressed but he's a guy and can't appreciate all the work that goes into those costumes!  This was Final Days Tour so we just went for it and flew to Vegas, very glad we did.
