Not sure about others but one of the most stressful things for me is booking a flight on the internet, sometimes I sit there for 30 minutes checking all is OK. So for Las Vegas this time I thought I will call a company and pay the extra £10 and it might be less stressful, well I was so stressed I had to open my window for some fresh air half way through the booking but hopefully we are all booked and confirmed. The firm closes at 2pm on a Sat so we think we have booked, I expect we will find out for definite on Monday. One good thing I checked my ESTA and that is still valid. For anyone else flying out you have to have the ESTA, this is the website, https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/

Ralph just posted this onto balloonhq if anyone is interested.

Twister Think Tank 5
I'll be conducting another Twister Think Tank at the Twist and Shout convention on January 21, 2015.  I'm looking for 12 participants to join me.  This is not for beginners, but for seasoned twisters who have at least two balloon ideas to share.  The new ideas can be new twists, techniques, designs, devices or anything than could benefit balloon twisters.  The purpose of the Twister Think Tank is to share new balloon ideas within a group setting and let synergy stimulate and generate even more ideas.  At previous TTT (Twister Think Tanks) it was amazing how the group worked together to produce spin-off ideas.  We all made suggestions and observations which generated more possibilities.  Creativity is the backbone of the balloon community.  My goal is that the TTT will be the catalyst that stimulates greater balloon art.  The event will start at 1:30PM and end about 6PM.  Contact me by email if you want to be considered.

We are on countdown for Twist and Shout, just a few days to go and looking into what shows to see and places to visit.
I think there are four of us travelling out, Danny, Olivia, and myself and I just found out Andrew looks like he is coming along a few days after we fly out.

That was a very stressful check in today, we booked with Delta but you fly with Virgin. Going between the two sites with different ticket and flight numbers etc............
Let's say it took a while, nearly an hour and it was not just me having the problem.

That done and now just packing for Twist and Shout  then meeting Olivia and Danny for breakfast...................and relax!

Went and looked at the Jeff Koon tulips today in the Wynn, very interesting. There will be a competition on balloon chat when I get back in connection with this $60 million artwork.
Met Janet Lenox this afternoon and had a nice lunch and she kindly showed us about, we were told to have the frozen hot chocolate from Serendipidy, thanks to Nick Rotondo
for the great suggestion...................it was fab!  Although it was not hot or even frozen come to that but still definately fab!
Off to the grand canyon tomorrow, have to be up at 5.30am, it will be a long day. Will try and post pictures sometime when I get a few minutes.
