  1. Hey Mark,
    I’ve been so busy the past two weeks with my second career and the most awaited moment in the CBB house. I’ll be chatting about that in the next week or so. Now that the weather has finally shown us some spring like temps I finished swapping over the winter tires and put on some new rotors. It’s a never-ending list for me. Hope you enjoy your weekend mate. Thanks for sharing CBB. Mr.CBB 🙂

    1. I’m not so sure Vegas IS service, rather Vegas is very good at taking your money and you don’t recognize it.

      People go for the brights lights and all the bells and whistles. It’s entertainment, it sells itself. 🙂
