I think it's safe to say that no one really wanted the $700 billion bailout. Unfortunately something had to be done as the credit cash-flow spigot was down to a drip. Even those with good credit were beginning to have difficulty getting funding of today's tighter standards approved loans. Not onl...
When you think of 'Play' and the Las Vegas Valley, many will only think of casinos. Well there is more to life beyond the Strip, and Henderson offers an incredible amount of recreation for residents. That's why it's no surprise it was one of 67 that made the 2008 list of Playful City USA, from th...

I mentioned the Nevada Southern Railway in a blog about the quaint town to the southeast of the Las Vegas Valley... Boulder City, NV. It lies just beyond Railroad Pass, and where our Dam Neighbors live. Yes this is the town born from 1930's Hoover Dam, and still has it's 'Mayberry' style charm an...
I recently mentioned the third annual Balloonapalooza III in my blog on the Aliante Community in North Las Vegas. It's held at Craig Ranch Park by the city's parks and recreation department, and includes much more than the hot air balloons. It also has free concerts and entertainment, plus a carn...
