There is no place like Alaska ...
My first visit Alaska was in 2001 followed by 2015, 2016, 2017 and now 2018. After my first visit in 2001 I talked about my experience for months, I was taken away by it's beauty.
When I was given another chance to visit in 2015 I couldn't pass up the opportunity.

Car Show in Downtown Henderson by Robert Swetz
 Here are some great photographs that I took at the old Imperial Palace in Las Vegas Nevada which is now part of the LINQ Hotel Casino.  These photos were taken with a wide angle so a couple of them look kind of strange, especially the red T-Bird in the photo below.
And right below the T-Bird photo is a great video I took in downtown Henderson Nevada many years ago.

When I was first introduced to Blogging, I had never even heard of the word ... and asked my web designer over 10 years ago, 
 
What is a Blog?
 
She said that a Blog was an opinion, statement, branding of the person writing the Blog.
Whether a person is Blogging for business, pleasure or exposure, it is a Journey.
 
Blogging takes patience, understanding, creativity, courage, knowledge and more.
 
And some may ask what makes the Perfect Blog, well ...
 
There is no such thing as a Perfect Blog ;o/
 
If your Blogging for Business, then include graphs of your product, area, URLs, Verbiage, photos, phone numbers, address, etc.
