In May we spent two weeks in Las Vegas, in a resort away from the strip. Last we visited LasVegas was in 1998. Las Vegas has expanded its airport and facilities ten times what we saw. Construction was every where. One week we spent on vacation and the second week KR attended a conference in the Caesar's Palace. We went to see four shows and visited the University of Las Vegas Solar Research Center conducted by Dr Boem who happened by one of the cotributors to the latest Energy Book. We went to see the Red Rock Canyon not far from the city. The weather was not too hot and Las Vegas without gambling was nice.
