Hey Joe.... next time you're in Vegas, let me buy you a cup of coffee... The TV station is right on the strip next to the Wynn. Regardless...see you at VOICE 2008!
Dave...thanks, but if I'm comin' to Vegas...it's gotta be more than coffee!!! :-) Wow, right next to the Wynn...LOVE the Wynn. What a great location for the station! Joe
Yes, I'll most definitely be at Voice2008 this year. Can't wait! The hotel sounds beautiful and I'm having to forcibly restrain myself from renting some hot convertible to take a drive up the coast after we're done....
See you soon!
I just joined your Ask An Anchor group. Great idea! Although I'm not sure if I joined it to get information, or just so I could see your handsome face on my home page all the time. :~)
LOVE the pictures of your beautiful daughters! You must be very proud.
Hope you're having a great week!
