Newkirk’s Notes – comments on Las Vegas from AccessVegas.Com publisher Ted Newkirk:
Hello From Las Vegas! – We’ve been having some super-hot weather, with temps in the mid-teens (one hundred and teens, not the freezing cold teens that some of you are used to in the winter). We’re pretty used to it and Phoenix and Laughlin were warmer than we were on some days.
If you follow us on our Access Vegas Twitter or Access Vegas Facebook pages, you can see that we live-posted the Las Vegas sign streaming cam and plenty of people were out in the afternoon heat taking their picture with it. But yes, even for us locals, it was HOT. Temps return to normal (104 F for a high) after July 4.
We tend to get low readership during holidays and as this goes out, we’re up against our United States Independence Day holiday on July 4. We do appreciate that you are taking the time to read, but with so many tuned out, we’ll get back to the ever-popular Newkirk’s Notes and Members Mania next week.
To our international friends, go ahead and celebrate July 4’th anyway. (OK, except maybe our friends in the UK)! Grill up some hamburgers and hot dogs (frankfurters), enjoy some American-style chips, some coleslaw, and a couple of beers.
Me? I’m getting a root canal (oh joy) on July 3. I had the misfortune of a good-sized 25 year old filling crack and now need a serious fix. So while you enjoy your favorite libations over the long holiday weekend, I’ll be popping pain pills. Oh well.
Hope you are enjoying this issue!
