  • Ballroom Dancing for Normal People
    Want to dance like a professional, or at least not embarrass yourself on the dance floor? I’ve come across a studio in the New Orleans Square (not the Hotel Casino) that offers lessons in ballroom dancing, tangos, salsa, swing etc. as well as dance exhibitions and a Ballroom DanceFest with prizes. The sponsor is Tiger Jesse of the Blackbelters Lions Club 702-892-8423....

  • Cirque du Soleil Fan Club
    What do you do when you have seen every Cirque du Soleil show in town? Take it on the road, of course. There is a group of Cirque fans who are so dedicated that they are going to travel to Orlando and later Tokyo to continue their mission which is to “live passionately!” (by seeing every Cirque du Soleil production possible.) Called Cirquecon, they have...

  • Tibetan Medicine & Astrology Readings in Las Vegas
    I attended an intriguing talk today at the West Sahara Library featuring Dr. Jhampa Kalsang, a doctor of Tibetan Astro (astrology) Medicine. Dr. Kalsang studied and then instructed at the Dalai Lama’s School of Tibetan Medicine in Dharamsala, India. He moved to Europe in the early 90’s and taught workshops in several countries including Germany, France, Italy,...

  • Speaking of Dependency on Oil
    There is an email circulating that warns of the strategic name change of CITGO to PETRO EXPRESS and that we should all be aware that CITGO-PETRO EXPRESS are one in the same Venezuelan oil company. Just in case you didn’t know, President Chavez of Venezuela is pretty unfriendly to the USA, but not unfriendly enough to ignore loss of sales revenues stateside. Apparently...

  • IONS of Las Vegas
    If you read my previous post mentioning Sheila Z. Stirling and her connection to IONS, you may have asked, “What is IONS exactly?” An acronym for the Institute of Noetic Sciences, IONS is a “nonprofit membership organization that conducts and sponsors leading-edge research into the potential and powers of consciousness.” That comes straight from...

  • Energy Conservation Ideas
    It seems like people just might be waking up to our vulnerability and how fragile we actually are, we feeble humans facing those thirsty, resource sucking machines we have created. There is a great website by Fuel Freedom International that you should visit – new products, new ideas, new possibilities for conservation of petroleum. The website is presented by Sheila...

  • Asian Ladies Capture the Ice
    We all are impressed by the stereotype given to our Asian sisters and brothers – talent, hard work, great fine motor skills, discipline, cool under pressure, single-minded determination. The World Chamiponships in Tokyo only proves the point. The gold goes to Miki Ando, Japan, silver to Mao Asada, Japan, and bronze to Yu-Na Kim, Korea. It’s hard to imagine...

  • Part II Text of the Emerald Tablet
    I examined several translations of the Emerald Tablet and found one that I thought held most closely to the Latin. Obviously the Latin we have is a translation from the Arabic, so we must be cautious about certainty even when dealing with that. As common with these ancient writings, the text is so mystical and obscure that you can make out of it just about what you want...

  • Part I The Emerald Tablet
    Sifting through the massive amount of information circulating about The Secret, my esoteric nature latched onto the Emerald Tablet, which those of you who have seen the DVD or read the book, know holds equal footing with Wattles as the basis for Rhonda Byrne‘s quest. What is the Emerald Tablet? What are the facts? Are there any? I did some research and present...

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...

    Coming from California, I love farmers markets. Not only are they a great place to pick up wonderful fruits, veggies and flowers, but often attract an eclectic group of interesting people. I admit that I am used to a vast display of local produce, so need to adjust my expectations here in the desert. The Country Fresh Farmers Market in downtown Henderson starts at 11...
