Ah my little artist is sure getting better each day.  At Emily’s school they had an artist in residence come and teach them some new techniques.  Her name is Annette Orrock.  Below are Emily’s creations.

(My favorite is Kaysville Ponds, what is yours?)

Vegas to Bishop's Warehouse

I had to go to Vegas for a four day Raymond James annual convention, we stayed at the Palazzo, which is a 5 star hotel.  It was really nice and probably one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in over the years.  Yet it is still Vegas and what happens in vegas, vegas can have.

If you have a word of wisdom or gambling addiction, you do not want to go on one of these conventions.  Investment and Annuity companies wine and dine us, literately.  Once or twice a day, we had bar tenders at our command and could order anything under the sun.  This is when I get my feel for Orange Juice and vitamin C.  A good bar will keep the best Orange Juice.

One wholesaler from DWS did take us to a really nice steak house and to the Cirque Du Soleil, which is an interesting show.  This steak house had baked potato bread, which was heavenly.

After being pampered, wined and dined for four days, I came home late Friday night and had to get up early the next morning to go do service at the Layton Bishop Warehouse.  I have never done this before and it was a neat experience.  It was so humbling to be in Vegas and then serving people.  I’ll take the serving any day.  I met some of the neatest people as well.

If you haven’t had a chance to work in the Bishop’s Warehouse, I highly recommend it.
