Spare Change in the Sofa Cushions

Nevada has one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. So the Rio, Las Vegas, has replaced the buffet cashiers with ATM-like machines -- they take cash, credit and/or debit cards.

At the Rio's Sunday champagne brunch, our server couldn't be bothered to refill our glasses so she grabbed a quart-sized water glass and poured the last half of the bottle into the glass!

Sites I like - This is fashion photographer Scott Schuman's blog of people he's photographed on the streets of Manhattan. His book of these photos, published in 2009, took off like a rocket. I took a look just now and I have to say I was horrified by little white sox worn with high-heeled shoes on the ladies. That was a look my aunt Vivian sported -- in 1956. covers food, restaurants, recipes and today's feature is unusual wedding cakes. One garish example had skeletal figures depicting the bride and groom on top of a day-glo rainbow-striped cake. Another cake was shaped into a lighthouse, near the beach and sea.
