Everyday there are multiple helicopters hovering over the strip. It would be a neat experience to do a tour to the Grand Canyon or something.

We've been to San Francisco nearly a dozen time, but we've never seen the fog. We always travel in fall or spring so the weather is clear and usually dry. Sometime, we'll have to make the trip during summer just to experience the fog.

We've actually booked our trip to Albuquerque. We're going in January. My mom and brother will be joining us. We're all huge fans!

When I cook, I have to follow a recipe. I never wing it. I'd love to whip up something and have it taste good. Much of the time even recipes fail. I love food, but I hate cooking it.

Technically, I've sold a photo... I sold several that I took and framed at the garage sale we had before we moved in the house. I've had several published in various publications, but the only compensation I asked for was photo credit. Esquire Magazine contacted me twice for one of my photos, but they never made the final print. That's more along the lines of what I was thinking when I added it to the list.

I'm intrigued by Big Sky country. Frank and I will head up there at some point. 2014 isn't likely, but maybe 2015?

I started the year with contacts. I actually learned to get them in and out of my eyes. It was a miracle! Then, after a few months they really bothered my left eye. I stopped wearing them. Bad, I know. A month went by, then two, then three... you get the idea. I should give it another go. I don't like wearing glasses and it would be nice to have clear vision.

I'm not a cold weather girl. I skied once, and that was enough for me. It's doubtful my ankles could take it anyway. But I do like the idea of going up to UT in the winter, relaxing by the warm fire with a good book.

I have only hit two royal flushes in the twelve years I've been gambling. Both were while playing nickels. Just once, I'd love to win on a quarter (the denomination I most often play) or dollar machine. If four to the royal was worth something, I'd be a millionaire.

I had such fun when taking a fishing charter to International waters off San Diego's coast. I didn't catch any big fish, but it would have been amazing if I did.

Re: That Royal Flush.
I checked with the posters at the Wizard of Vegas site and they agree that the only difference in denomination of the machine is that affects your bankroll, not your chances of getting a Royal Flush.
