  • Tim Bratt’s Jazz
    We stopped by the Tuscany to see Tim Bratt on drums with his Jazz group. Tim’s sound is sophisticated, edgy and very progressive, not easily accessible for the untrained jazz ear. It’s a comfortable spot, unlike many of the jazz venues around town and two beers are $5. Tim is putting together a new group as Chris Gordon is playing with Joe Piscopo at the...

  • Prato Haggadah at LV Art Museum
    The Las Vegas Art Museum is exhibiting an interesting slice of cultural history generally unknown outside of the academic or Judaic community. Most are familiar with Medieval manuscripts of the Christian faith, evoking images of brown-robed monks slaving away in distant monasteries, destroying their eyesight with flickering candlelight. The Jewish tradition produced a...

  • 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...

  • 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...

    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.
