Returned Monday from a short trip to Las Vegas. I'd only been there once before, on a New Year's Eve, about twenty five years ago. It has changed and grown since then but still a loud, crazy place. I went to see Patrick Bruel in Concert at the Wynn Casino. Beautiful place and the concert was wonderful. The meet and greet afterwards was badly organized and poor Patrick was just mobbed. There was no security for him at all and his many fans just overwhelmed him. I did get to say a few quick words before he moved on.

Most of the others attending were French and the few Americans I met were French teachers. I saw Celine Dion's husband, René Angélil, moving through the crowd. He'd been backstage to see Patrick and there were some odd characters hanging on to him as he was leaving.  I heard that he, like Patrick, is an avid poker player.
Here is just a short video I did. I have a few more short ones that I wanted to put together but can't figure out how to do it so just posting this one.
