Caesar’s Windsor Canada

Caesar's Windsor Canada
“Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada is one of four casinos in the Detroit–Windsor area. Owned by the government of the province of Ontario, it is operated by Caesars Entertainment.”

This weekend my son and I went to Caesar’s in Windsor Canada for a day trip. It was about a 4 hour drive for us one way. He had just received his new Passport and I thought we would break it in on a little road trip. Usually getting into Canada is easy and customs back into the US is hard but this time it was reversed. The Casino is nice but if you are looking for Caesar’s Las Vegas, you won’t find it here. A $20 US bill gave me about $26 in Canadian money so at least I felt a little richer. All in all it was a nice little trip.

A Flock Of Seagulls

On the start to “Living More With Less” I went to the Hollywood Casino in Columbus, Ohio to see A Flock Of Seagulls. The concert was free, there were a lot of people there and a good time was had by all. Although the only original member of the band is the lead singer Mike Score. It did not take away from the experience. I am not a huge fan of them but I did have this on an un-written bucket list to see them or Duran Duran. I guess it is some sort of flash back to the 80’s for me. On to my next adventure.

Kennedy – Johnson Airforce One SAM 26000

Kennedy - Johnson Airforce One

Yesterday my son and grandson went with me over to Dayton Ohio the the National Airforce Museum. If you ever get a chance – you must go. One of the greatest thrills for me is going through the SAM 26000 that carried the body of President John F. Kennedy back from Dallas and saw President Johnson being sworn in with Jackie Kennedy in her blood stained outfit get sworn in as the next President. You are able to walk right through the aircraft which is amazing knowing the history of the plane. As you exit there is a partition that was cut so that they could fit the casket of President Kennedy into the seating area and removed 4 rows of seats. Very, very interesting and I think my grandson learned a couple of things too.
