Here's a bit of a "heads-up" notice: next week's Plus Edition newsletter mailing may or may not be the same.
I am staying home just long enough to do my laundry, then am heading out on a multi-purpose trip, visiting several western U.S. cities. Along the way, I will stop in at the Family History Expo being held Friday and Saturday in Sandy, Utah. I have attended several previous Family History Expos in other cities, but this will be my first visit to the Sandy event. I suspect it will be as good as the others that I have always enjoyed.
If you can be in the greater Salt Lake City area on Friday and/or Saturday (August 27 and 28), I'd suggest you stop in. Note that you can attend the exhibits hall free of charge. Attendance at the seminars and other events requires payment, however. For more information about the Family History Expo in Sandy, Utah, look at http://fhexpos.com/ and especially at http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07e2wik2sx79132146
I will also attend some business meetings in Salt Lake City and then head down to Las Vegas for a couple of days. Las Vegas is one of my favorite cities although I don't gamble. I haven't put a dime in a slot machine in ten years or more and I never stand at gaming tables. Someday I'll write about my opinions of gambling but I will first provide an advance excerpt from that unwritten article: "Gambling is a stupid way to give your money away. You are guaranteed to be a loser over a period of time. The house always wins. I'd suggest you find a worthwhile charity and give all your money to that organization, not to casino owners."
What I do love about Las Vegas, however, is all the shows and all the other tourist attractions. The restaurants are great also. I always try to take in a show whenever I visit Las Vegas. The last time I was there I saw "Jersey Boys" and highly recommend it.
In any case, next week's newsletter will be written in various hotel rooms and airport lounges. It may or may not be sent on Sunday evening. If not, it will probably be sent on Monday.
Someone once cautioned me that I shouldn't write in advance about my travels as burglars might read my article and then burgle the house while I am gone. OK, here's a note to any would-be burglar: I am traveling alone. As usual, the house will be occupied by other family members when I am not here. This house is rarely left empty. Enough said?
