David Eleanor was talking about this trip of a music video today on the inbox.

Couple groovy things I wanted to share about the wedding planning.

Coral was made aware of this great offer from Mandalay Bay.  Unfortunately it does not run while we’re there, but hopefully there might be something like it.  The Lion King will be playing?  Hakuna Matata!

And my Mom was checking out the West Jet website, and there will be some savings there for the wedding.

West Jet Group and Wedding Flights

I’ll get on calling West Jet and getting that figured out by the end of the week.  I think we’ll wait to book at Mandalay Bay till some Fall specials come out.  I think Vancityrockgirl said that we should start seeing them soon… or early summer.

The other thought I am having is that I might book the whole week off… and after the wedding and all the partying it might be nice to drive around the desert.  It was the plan to do the “circuit” anyways… but now I am thinking it might be fun to try something more ambitious, like a drive to Reno, or else maybe to Laughlin or even Arizona.  If time and money were no barrier, then I’d go to California and visit the Salinas Valley and explore all the areas of “East of Eden.”  Might be a little ambitious for me… maybe I’ll visit the Salinas Valley when I’m an old man on my motorcycle (or scooter).

Go with yourself.

Hey Jeremy…. here ya go! Bit of a busy weekend, I celebrated both mine and my girlfriends’ birthdays… so yeah….. still hurting a bit. In other news, did you know that Bob’s place in North Van burned to the ground last week ? He lost everything. And the bastard just rolls with it with a shrug. What a guy!

This tune is called San Diego, and it is about an unpaid speeding ticket I got once on a road trip to California. True story. I still haven’t paid it, so now there is a bench warrant for my arrest in Weed County. The fine is up to $1200 and the collections calls me twice a week. I never answer. And never will! Just can’t drive down there anymore.. or I am going to the slammer!

Cheers bud, new tunes to be recorded next month that I will send your way too.

Lazy.

Well, it turns out that my good friends Bob and Jen (pictured above holding Mads) are in fact homeless!  About a week ago, their apartment burned down.

From the Horse’s Mouth: Bob telling the story

Can you even believe that?  Luckily they had insurance and lots of friends and family to help out where they can.
