Vegas here I come

Believe it or not, and I have trouble myself, but I am off to Las Vegas this morning to meet up with GWE - we are in town to see Ricky Hatton (British boxer) defend his title or some such.  I know - I have trouble with that sentence too.  Every time I tell someone I feel as nonplussed as they look.  

And what great timing, I will spend a few hours in a germ incubator followed by several days surrounded by thousands of people from all over.  GWE jokingly said we should try and market some souvenir Union Jack emblazoned face masks!

Wish me luck - my plan is to pre-emptively (?) self medicate with the free alcohol they serve while you gamble - please tell me they still do that or it could be a very expensive weekend.

All being well, I will report back on Tuesday.

Hatton is fantastic. I will watch the fight later and will ave to avoid the news all day as I don't want to know the outcome until I see the match. Have a great time.
