  2. Las Vegas !!!!
    To be avoided like the plague.
    Full of bullshit, crap and not only the game of crap, sports people from here in Australia on end of year tours and not a brain to be found amongst them - league footballers.
    Yes I have been there - tinsel town of the weirdest of the weird - a good place where you would find 100's of Sarah Palins - in drag and not in drag!
    Try to be better, Adam with "facts of the day" !!!

  5. I just visited Sin City last year. Sure didn't see any meadows, but can understand the sin in that city.

  7. I prefer the name "Sin City." Seems so quaintly old-fashioned these days though.

  8. As a Spanish I knew the meaning but...not the person who gave it the name. Intersting question. Kisses:)

  9. Wow! HB was a little hard on Las Vegas, a city I find endlessly fascinating. What a place to observe humans!
