a 5 year mission...

huge model star trek they had in the exhibit. A whole star trek history with pieces from all the different shows and movies. Also you can do a klingon and a borg experience at the end (we did both). The Borg one was 4-D - so of course I missed out on some of it with the 3-D glasses as turns out I cant really see 3-d that well ! But still fun and was scary and wonderfully frightening. Then of course we shopped in Star Trek shop on the promenade and I got a Queen Borg photo which came out amazing ! (will post later). Then we took monorail down the strip and saw the Vegas hotels and the insanity inside. Utah parks and Star Trek - perfect Thanksgiving ! Hope yours was good too folks

Live Long and Prosper

Yep - dragged himself to the star trek experience on way back from Utah. It was fantastic ! So much fun. This is Jan with a Vulcan officer who was hanging out at Quarks bar. Yep we're the couple who went to Vegas and didnt gamble but spent 4 hrs at Star Trek. I love my hubbie !

So here we are overlooking inspiration point in Bryce National Park in Utah over thanksgiving weekend. Bloody amazing place - its breathtaking (literally as was 11,000 ft above sealevel so we got dizzy just getting out of the car!). Zion and Bryce are such beautiful parks. Hardly any folk at Bryce when we went so we enjoyed bundling up. Next day was back into the high 60s by St George the town we stayed at.

high pristess

You are The High Priestess

Science, Wisdom, Knowledge, Education.

The High Priestess is the card of knowledge, instinctual, supernatural, secret knowledge. She holds scrolls of arcane information that she might, or might not reveal to you. The moon crown on her head as well as the crescent by her foot indicates her willingness to illuminate what you otherwise might not see, reveal the secrets you need to know. The High Priestess is also associated with the moon however and can also indicate change or fluxuation, particularily when it comes to your moods.

Congrats !

Congrats to my sister Gra who not only was made a Detective in the Guards in Ireland this month (and long overdue by the way as she's been working with that serious crime squad forever in the Detective group anyway but she also got her Masters from Queens Belfast (and this is ontop of working full time & overtime!)

Also most newly promoted detectives are moved to another location, normally the not so favorite inner city Dublin (Dublins a great city but rough diamond is a good description) but Gra was allowed to stay where she is which is bloody fantastic. Her and her hubbie Chris just got back from China where they had a fabulous holiday in September so makes it even better.

Swelling up with pride folks... That's my little sister, ok my much taller sister but still younger..

Bueller.. Bueller...Bueller

Anyone notice that the gas prices have suddenly dropped, nah even plummeted to new lows just before the elections ? Is it just my Irish self that notices this sudden drop? Is it the oil companies trying to stop the new proposition or politicans pulling favors to make the water we find our selves in less oil slicked?

Not that I am unhappy over paying less, but I'll take the sudden drop with a side of disbelief and expectance of worse to come..

Anyone Anyone Anyone??

So dont forget to vote tomorrow if you haven't already done the route of absentee ballot thats always handy...
