To me, there is something a little too seedy; a little too decadent; a little too corrupt about the place. Yes, I know, there are wonderful shows and shopping.

Time Off?

As I prep to take a mini vacation out of the area I thought about September and my blog. I was very tempted to ask for the month off from blogging and promptly return October 1st.
