Moody's recently downgraded the bond ratings for Wynn and other casinos due to poor performance.
Some casinos have been laying off people, something you need to look into and consider.

Too bad the Tigua can't have gambling as the Casino Resorts around ABQ are very nice and employ around 10,000 people. EP could use more venue like that.

Well, I think I am going to turn the job down. After a long talk with the wife, and then the whole family, we decided as a family its not the opportunity for us.

I was interviewing for a Plain Clothes Security position.. the pay is excellent... so are the benefits. Problem is.. I have to find a place to live there, and get all kinds of background stuff done.. and they have some funny laws for car insurance in NV. Not that there is a problem insurance wise.. just kinda silly how they do things there... guess they have had some issues in the past. So I have the job, if the background stuff comes back ok, which it will. Just don't know if I want to live in Las Vegas. For me its a nice place to visit, just don't know if I want to live there. Did I mention they flew me out there.. I hate to fly.. and even more so on them small little planes.. but I so felt like a celebrity.

So anything new happen while I was gone?

We were talking on here about that Fountain Mall thing on the East side.. if they do it like the one in Vegas, Man El Paso will be mainstream. They have this community that is shops and residential, all rapped into one area.. its huge, but very cool.. most of the people who live there, also work there, so no driving. Would be cool to see a couple things like that here. Work. Play, Live all in one area..

Heard a rumor, that a new Theme park was heading to El Paso soon.. Not like Disney or Six Flags, but some private investor.. heard he was looking at the North East and East side as potential places to put this park. We sure could use more attractions on the N.E. Side of town.. hope its true.

I see they got the back gate open to Biggs. And more houses built on Dyer. Saw lots of changes coming back into El Paso.. was like I had been gone a year and was only a few days.

But its funny its good to be back.. weird how you want to get way so bad, and when you do, you miss some things.. and then you get back and your glad to be home.

hey Muhnay...can you answer my question? Thanks.
