Stress Break Stephen Style

Recovering from a serious illness?………………………….Hop a plane to Vegas, see a Manilow Show!
Needs some cheering up?………………………………………Hop a plane to Vegas, see a Manilow Show!
Feeling down in general?……………………………………….Hop a plane to Vegas, see a Manilow Show!

At least that’s what I do, and that’s what I’ll be doing this weekend. Good Music always works for me.

Frequently flier miles and portable neb machines sure make trips like this a lot more do-able.
By some strange coincidence, the Las Vegas Marathon is this weekend…..hmmmmm don’t I wish.

I finally figured out that by buying the cheaper seats , I can go 4 times as often. See, there’s a method to my madness. Oh..did I mention that this is will make 48th and 49th Manilow concert. Ive seen the Vegas show 22 times now.

And if a couple Manilow shows don’t do the trick, maybe a Bela Fleck show will. Love their music. I see them on the 16th… and no plane ride required!

    have fun, and fly safe.

    • If only I can avoid the smokey hotel lobbies and casinos., I'll be in good shape.

        I hate that….Living where I do, where smoking in public places is banned nearly entirely (no smoking at all in restaurants or bars…etc) it always shocks me when I go places that have a "smoking section" or just allow smoking in general…because it's not like there's an invisible wall that blocks the smoke from entering the non-smoking section.

        I'll tell you, I'm a little jealous. I haven't been to ANY show in far too long.

    That made me laugh so much. Steve, you need to take "I'm-a-'poor'-student-and-want-to-travel-as-cheap-as-possible" lessons from me ;-). [Although, your trips will be far, far more luxurious I'm sure. ;-)]

    Enjoy that First Class, you! Cheer up of the day RIGHT THERE! ;-).

    • I wrote the book on cheap, but you know what? By going cheap you can go more often:) You're going to get there just as fast whether you sit in the front of the plane or the back. ( though I admit, there's nothing quite as comfortable as the first class cabin).

      The most expensive item of this trip is computer access. The hotel where I'm staying charges $13.00 a day for Wifi. What a rip.

    • Yeah, earlier this year I paid $300 for a front row ticket. Then in Sept I paid $85 for a balcony seat.
      Because I was alone, when I got to the theater that night, the usher upgraded my seat me to the main floor ( sometimes they'll do this because they wanna fill every seat up front). The new seat was much better , but the women sitting next to me was reeking of perfume. I asked the usher if I could have my original seat back. She felt sorry for me and moved me to the 2nd row isle seat ( one of the best seats in the house).

    I haaate when they charge for WiFi [you probably already knew that, eh? lol]. Free WiFi is one of my hotel requirements [funny how the cheap hotels have it free and the classier ones you have to pay lol.] Also, the back of the plane just sucks cause it's too loud.

    Hey, hopefully you'll get upgraded to front-ish row again without the icky perfume-y people around you. That drives me craaazy…

    Have a great getaway!

    Have fun, man! You deserve it. I loooove Bela Fleck too. My brother got to see them this week and I was so jealous.

    And yes, cheap travel FTW!

    Have a great trip-but be warm it's got kind of chilly in LV of a night! x

    The real question is, are you gonna stop at 50 Manilow shows or keep going? 50's such a nice round number. ;)

    Would you believe I'm 40 and have never been to a concert.

Most frequently asked question

"Can you have an asthma attack with a normal sat reading"?
The answer is..YES!
While it's a little unusual to see a person with a perfect O2 sat of a 100% during a severe exacerbation, its pretty typical to see sats in the 94-97% range. The reason for this, is that asthma is a disease of the airways , not the alveoli where gas exchange takes place. Most asthmatics dont desaturate during the early stages of an attack,unless theres a secondary problem such as pneumonia. You have to be extremely ill with asthma if your sats are low.
