The scenery set the tone…

for a magical night indeed..

The experience of wonder continued with amazing tricks… that made me go Oooohhhh….

Ahhhhhh!!! 😯

One of the newest headliners at the Westgate is getting great reviews from guests..

JEN KRAMER says there was something about the idea of learning magic secrets… and sharing them with others to make them smile… was exciting! She performs some AMAZING things that will leave you wondering……🤔

Now how in the world did she do that???? How did she possibly knowwww???

Jen is sharp! The New York native…started the magic society at Yale University while she was a student at the higher institution of learning.

She’s also traveled the world… with “Magicians without borders,” to bring smiles to others with unforgettable magic tricks.

Magic is a universal language you know… every one… every where..GETS IT!!

Now… back to her NEW

Vegas Act…. Jen loves interacting with her audience… and chooses

quite a few guests to be featured in her show.

She tells the audience early on… that she started learning magic… when she was just 10 years old.

Her uncle gave her an

old school classic

book.. . 📖 published back

in 1949.

The magician 🎩 says she spent hours going over passages… and fell in

L♥️VE😍 with the process.

And as fast as you can say ✨✨”Abracadabra !!!”

She was hooked! In fact… she memorized the ENTIRE Book!

Please know… If you see her show… you’ll be drawn in… hooked line and sinker…

just like…

(( snaps 💥fingers..👉🏽that!!!))

Catch Jen Kramer Wednesday through Saturday… at the Westgate.

Other popular shows include

Comedian George Wallace…

Another main attraction is the Award Winning Adult Cabaret show…

I love singing hot songs… and melodies to boost my spirits and bring me JOY! So naturally… I was looking forward to attending this musical concert for MONTHS!

Barry Manilow… has always been one of my favorites.

His voice is a treasure! It’s so Pristine and perfect! 👍🏽👍🏽

I have nothing but Happy 😃 memories of various points of my life with his melodies! 🎶 🎵 Perfect Insert for his hit song…. 🎶da da da…🎵🎶

🎼 “I can’t sMiLe without you… 😃

🎶Can’t smile without you… 🎶

It was so cool… I was supposed singing… and swaying back and forth… even this little smiley face popped up on the stage screen with the uplifting lyrics! 😃

At 75 years of age… he’s still got it!!!

He’s a personable performer… who comes across as a genuinely “NICE PERSON !” 😃

I spoke to someone who worked at the show venue… and they said HE is a perfectionist.!

He wants to make ~sure~ he gives his ALL to his loyal fans!

I have such wonderful childhood memories of singing 🎶 along to his music… traveling with my family in the car. 🚘

And let’s not forget listening to his heartwarming tunes in elevators… offices…and waiting rooms.

Excuse me… while I belt out another tune:

🎼🎶” I write ✍🏼the songs🎶 that make

the whole world 🌎 sing!!!” 🎶

During his performance…Barry said he got a kick out of people saying his songs were always comforting while they were in dentist offices!

Ooo…. Here’s a FUN FACT! ☝🏽

When Barry Manilow was first starting out… he JUST wanted to be a composer… He wrote jingles for commercials…

Betcha you know these: 🎶🎵🎼“I am stuck on bandaids, & bandaids stuck on me!!!”🎶

….. and what about: 🎼🎵“Like a good neigh-bor…. State Farm is thereeee!!!!”🎶

Uh-huhhhh…Barry Manilow wrote those popular jingles… and a whole lot more!

So remember… every time those commercials have played… over the years….

Chaaaa-ching‼️

💵💰💵💰💵💰💵

I know right??? Yep… The Hits have come Home to Vegas‼️

ALL Manilow’s songs

(and jingles) are TIMELESS‼️🕰

…. and as far as I’m concerned… They’ll

—NEVER — go out of style!!!! Neva… Everrr!!!!

***Newsflash!!!📸****

A trip through History! More Highlights from #NMAAHC the National Museum of African American History & Culture 


My experience was so NICE! I had to come back TWICE!!! The National Museum of African American History and Culture is ~DEFINITELY~  one of the FINEST museums in the WORLD 🌎!!!


I am so proud of my heritage & culture! African-American people have gone through a lot in this country.  

My people have endured enormous hardships…but we’ve made it through the centuries with DIGNITY & incredible STRENGTH!

My ancestors helped BUILD America❗️ Slaves labored to keep this country maintained and supported. 

 Current generations… continue to support and nurture this land. We love ❤️the #USA 🇺🇸 and pray…it will LOVE us back!

We continue to keep HOPE alive… that MORE change will come…and give us FAIR opportunities…

A FAIR chance to grow, exist in peace & harmony, earn decent wages, financialy support & care for our families, live in a safe & clean environments…-and-achieve success ‼️‼️

Visiting the museum keeps you grounded.  EVERYONE who can… should try and visit. 

It’s definitely an “eye opening experience.” This is a TRIP through history!

It will remind some.. and educate others about you the trials and tribulations African American’s have endured… and survived!  

Being taken from our native land in Africa…making it through the middle passage, Bondage….and still remaing “focused” and strong enough… to continue the Fight for FREEDOM & EQUALITY!

Seeing the images in the museum make uus feel PROUD of WHO WE ARE!!! 


Our skin… our features… the way we walk… and talk.

Our hair… and the history of those who made it Easier for us to manage… and maintain. 


This Exhibit highlights on Madame C.J Walker... a self made millionaire $$$ 💰💵💰 who creating products for BLACK HAIR CARE…💆🏽

The NEW generations of Madam C.J Walker… have updated some of her hair care products from the past.  The NEW Hair care merchandise can be purchased in Sephora stores…

Below are photos depicting the EARLY days of the “BEAUTY PARLOR “ experience for women of color.

This was Madam CJ Walker’s home.  She owned a very FINE mansion during her life time.  She was one of the richest people of color at one point…

The museum is FILLED with many other success stories like this one…

Every single moment of the African American experience is documented with pictures, video, artifacts, family heirlooms, rare collectibles…. YOU NAME IT!!!

This time…  I spent 3 (three) days exploring the museum… I took my time… checking out each level.


Here’s a peak through a window… from the highest level.. A picture perfect view of the NATIONAL MALL.


While I spent many emotional hours in darkness… reviewing the middle passage… and historical facts about SLAVERY… during my first visit. (Grand Opening Day!) I revisited these areas…


but focused a bit more on  “lighter” subject matters this time…. and stories of  SUCCESS!!!


Entertainment! 


 Outstanding accomplishments from African Americans on stage, film and television! 


Music!



SPORTS!


Literary Greats! Like August Wilson… who wrote “Fences.”



And African-American Greek lettered organizations… Including my beloved Sorority! DST! 🔺

These are a few collectible items on display..

Below… is a “pledge” hat worn by perspective women looking to be Uniates into the sisterhood…

Below… I’m checking out photos of my sorority sisters “stepping!”

Stepping is an artistic form of expression…with song, dance and a special routine of choreographed moves.. that sororities & fraternities do in celebration… and  HONOR of the GREEK LETTERED organizations..

This routines often include history of the organizations… and descriptive details about the “image” of the groups.

The museum has an interactive exhibit… to teach visitors how to do some signature moves… that help make up snazzy “Stepping” routines.

Here’s a close up look at MY sorority sisters… during the 80’s.. This photo comes from a stepping exhibition at a local chapter… of a college based in the south.

Here’s another photo included in this 2nd floor exhibit. Below is an example of another fraternity… “Kappa” men… using their traditional CANES during a stepping routine…

….and this is a scene from a large screen where guests are directed to stand in a square… and learn a routine from watching “Step Masters.”


Step outside… and study the artistic shape & design of the museum. A beautiful scene of Washington, DC landmarks are visible across the street from the museum… and every where you turn..

Walking back into REAL LIFE… after taking a historic journey in the past… will MOTIVATE you… to take BOLDER strides into a BETTER FUTURE…

Never judge ANY MAN or WOMAN unless you’ve walked a mile in ~THEIR~ shoes! 

Walking miles in this museum will surely give you a better perspective of the BLACK experience! 

African Americans consistently make efforts to STEP  into “GREATNESS..” 

Our people remain FAITHFUL that better days are down the road! So we KEEP IT MOVING!!!

Can we DO BETTER in the FUTURE …and NOT remain BITTER from all the trials… and tribulations from the PAST??? 

🔴🔵  YES.WE.CAN!!!! 🔵🔴

Now step out in FAITH… and WALK in that TRUTH!!!

The “Changing of the Leaves!” One of MOTHER NATURES ***FiNesT*** Shows on Earth! 🍂🍁🍂


If you’re looking for autumn colors, tourism officials say now is the time to hit Vermont’s roads

http://abcn.ws/2dFSeHF


Lake Placid, NY

The Adirondack Mountains are famed for their fall colors, and T+L readers gave Lake Placid the silver medal for autumn foliage. Red and silver maples, birch, aspen, oaks, and beech trees stretch out along the Olympic Trail scenic byway (which runs through Lake Placid), providing a striking show of color for its 170 miles. Or take the Fall Foliage Train tour on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. 

Stowe, VT 

As the air gets crisp in Stowe, the sugar maples come alive in intense shades of gold, orange, and scarlet blanketing the surrounding Green and Worcester mountain ranges. In general, the best time to capture these brilliant hues is the end of Sept.-Nov.

Portsmouth, NH  

Like so many New England towns, Portsmouth is awash in early American history. At Strawbery Banke Museum—a 10-acre outdoor museum—you can take in the fall color as you roam the waterfront district and its restored homes built in the mid-1600s. By car, watch the foliage as you drive down the 18-mile scenic Coastal Byway. Or leave the driving to the captain on a 2.5-hour inland river cruise highlighting foliage and local lore.

Franklin, TN  

Fall color arrives relatively late in middle Tennessee—around early November—with poplars, maples, oak, and hickory cloaking the surroundings in jeweled colors. The brick sidewalks of downtown Franklin, just south of Nashville, carry tourists past boutiques, art galleries, gift shops, and restored homes within a 16-block district that’s on the National Register of Historic Places. It makes a convenient jumping-off point for exploring the Natchez Trace parkway and its hundreds of miles of autumn beauty.

Asheville, N.C

The Asheville fall leaf color show in the North Carolina mountains attracts visitors from around the world. With the 5,000-foot elevation change within 50 miles of Asheville, our lush Blue Ridge Mountain range puts on one of the longest-running autumn leaf color displays in the country

The legendary WESTGATE Hotel–with all that #HighRoller #SWAG!

I sensed a very rich history at this hotel as soon as I set foot on the property… The massive hotel loomed before me.. in all it’s splendor… 

“Wow!” I can only imagine what it was like back in the day… when all the superstars were here.. This is one impressive structure!

The WESTGATE #LasVegas Resort & Casino… originally opened as the International Hotel on July 2, 1969… and at the time..it was the largest hotel and casino in the WORLD!

 It had 1,568 rooms, a 30,00 square foot casino and 50,000 square feet of meeting space.

From March of 1971 through 2012..The hotel was known as the Las Vegas Hilton. The hotel space grew to almost 3,000 rooms… over 95,000 square feet of casino, 225,000 square feet of convention space… Not to mention a variety of restaurants, bake shops, souvenir places and one of the FIRST Benihana of Tokyo restaurants. (One of my favorites!) I like seeing the food prepared on the grill..

I look forward to the Hot steak & shrimp dinner…and all the other tasty courses… -plus- a fun show from a skilled chef!

Mmmm…. well enough about food.. Anyway, The #WESTGATE purchased the hotel in 2014..It became, and will remain the WESTGATE Las Vegas Resort & Casino. There are even TIMESHARES available here.

Now..Let me share the royal chambers with you..where I stayed.  I opened the door.. and felt Sooo nostalgic!  

Tasteful furnishings.. Lots of chandeliers… (yessss!!!) and all the right touches to give my abode all the Las Vegas splendor and swagger you expect.. 

Stylish… with a touch of that “traditional” HighRoller Flair! 

Whoa! I spot a picture of ELVIS near one of the many chandeliers in the room.. Yes.. ELVIS was here in this building.. for a long time! 

He performed over 600 consecutive sold out shows here.. and his music touched over 2.5 million fans.. during the seven years he performed here. 

He has a HUGE apartment space.. with all the original furnishings in tact… where he and his family lived while he performed here.. 

It’s a fabulous space where legendary after parties were also hosted by “The King of Rock and Roll… and his wife Priscilla.

 For just over 20 bucks.. you can tour his preserved living quarters… I was on a tight schedule this go round… but I’ll get back around to it..( and share with you! 😊) 

Gee Wizz… I can’t tell you how much I wanted to do that tour! ( I love giving tours myself… and TAKING them around interesting.. and historic places.. EVEN MORE!!! 

~Anywho~ I asked a few hotel staffer about it… and ALL their eyes LIT UP!  “It’s H U G E!!! ” said one guy… “Ohhh.. It’s sooo elaborately decorated!” –said another lady.. looking all dreamy and sentimental.. -that settles it!-It’s at the TOP of my “TO DO” List.. next time I return!!! 

Can you imagine all the SUPER STARS🌟 stopping through??? Speaking of SUPER STARS…also to MY DELIGHT–😊 I also had portraits of “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali in the room…

…and a sultry portrait of the late.. great Marilyn Monroe💕 She made the song famous… and oh yes! Diamonds are -still- “A girl’s best friend!” So you know my eyes “sparkled” when I saw all the shimmering stones dangling from the chandeliers!  Confirmation that  Sparkle-“E” was truly welcome!!!

I really enjoyed my stay at the WESTGATE very much! It was very comfortable… and nice..a nostalgic experience indeed.. 

When I clicked on the Big Screen TV in the room… I even saw a Turner classic movie.. with Old Hollywood stars from back in the day! I also had an awesome view of the Vegas strip from one of the highest floor in the hotel. Again.. The resort now has 3,000 rooms… and 300 suites. 

All of the rooms are being renovated.. and 200 of them will become TIMESHARE VILLAS.. 

According to hotel statements..”Each VILLA and ROOM will reflect the grandeur of a bygone era, and chic touches of retro modern de’cor.”


There’s a life size bronze statue of ELVIS PRESLEY in the hotel lobby..to pay tribute to the king.

After Elvis reigned supreme … Other top stars also headlined here for many more decades.. including Liberace, Tom Jones, Tony Bennett, Johnny Cash, Glen Campbell, Red Foxx, Paul Anka, Earth Wind and Fire, Barry Manilow and many more! Thanks to these legends,the WESTGATE will be forever treasured here in Vegas! The staff was friendly and accommodating..and the history is extremely rich… 

Most ~definitely~ a win-win to include this magnificent place on your schedule!

Planning your DIVINE Escape to Paradise! Hawaii is calling! 🌺

There are many hidden treasures in Hawaii… Very distinct discoveries extend beyond the winding road…into Hana..

Make a stop into #RoseHall
A historic little cottage designed especially for a Hawaiian King! Now the place to “Sip through” for wine tasting!🍷


A wealthy shipping tycoon owned this vast property… and a mansion for his own family.. When he learned his royal majesty accepted his invitation to visit, The owner of the estate had the cottage built precisely for the King’s stay. Today.. It houses some of the finest wines around… and a modest display of photographs… and artifacts from the Kings historic visit.

After you swirl your wine in a glass… and inhale the oak.. fruit and floral notes…
**** SMELL the BOQUET!!! **** But before you completely leave this exotic side of #Maui… #RoseHall in #Hana …. stop and smell the rich fragrance of #Flowers at “Miss Virgie’s Flower Farm” also in Hana.


Virginia, or “Miss Virgi” as she is fondly called, delights hundreds of tourists each year… with amazing presentations.. about the tropical breeds of flowers she grows on her farm.
Miss Virgie also had hand made jewelry… and other souvenirs available for purchase. You can order tropical floral arrangements plucked straight from her farm online.
