Days Go By

Days go by in the desert, and I don’t have much to post about. My big West Coast road trip is not for another three weeks. Until then I’m enjoying time with the folks and exploring the Las Vegas Valley. I’ve been sick, I’ve sliced off a finger nail, I joined a gym. There you have it.


  • Eb uses this one for soda bread.
  • You don’t really need the recipe for frozen banana puree; it’s just neat that it turns out so much like ice cream.
  • Galud: mix leftover rice with flax seed, cooked beans, and julienned veggies. bake it until the rice gets crispy

Casinos I’ve been in recently:

  • Mirage
  • Treasure Island
  • Wynn
  • Venitian
  • Flamingo
  • Harrah’s
  • Santa Fe Station
  • 4 Queens
  • Golden Nugget

My mama asked me the other day which games I like to play… honestly, the stress of possibly losing outweighs any joy I could get from winning money. So after some thought, I answered "I just want to play the slots with fancy bonus features." That’s my story, I’m sticking with it. So when I feed a machine a five dollar bill, I’ve already considered it lost. I play it until the machine shows me its bonus feature, and then I cash out. I tend to enjoy even more if the sound is loud and there are explosions.

Ukulele exercises I’ve been doing:

  • Major chords around the circle of fifths
  • II-V-I starting at Cm
  • II-V-I starting at Fm

I’ll try to take more photos.
