ARCHIVING…

Tam O'Shanter Motel; Las Vegas, Nevada

I find the 1950 unlimited photo stream quite interesting  because it features many hotels from the 1950’s. The fact that someone  archived something that interesting gives me an idea to quit having all those photo books made of our vacations which we do a lot and find a more digitally efficient way to preserve our family memories.  One of my favorite things to do is go on vacation with my family. We have visited many different hotels, but has never visited  Las Vegas. This artifact from the collection of the hotel with pool just brings back some great memories of our family vacation.

Tam O’Shanter Motel; Las Vegas, Nevada  was closed and demolished  in 2004. The motel was built in 1957 or 1958 by  owner Bernie Zeldin. He moved to Los Angeles in 1931 and later to Nevada a short time later. He built two other hotels, The Vegan and the Jackson in down town Las Vegas. He later built the Tam O’ Shatner Motel which he owned and operated until his death in 1997. 

On the fabulous “Strip” in Las Vegas, between the Sands and Dessert Inn Hotels, Tam O’Shanter stood  out as one of the most magnificent of all resort motels. Free T.Vs–Phones in every room–Steam Heat–Cooled by refrigeration–Show reservations–Heated swimming pool was located at 3317 Las Vegas Boulevard, South.  It is fascinating that the history and legacy  of such a famous landmark can be accessed today  in 2015. I recommend that you read more about the Tam O’Shater Motel, which although it no longer stands erect, we can read about it and see pictures of it 58 years after it was first built.

 

 

 

GOOD ADVICE FROM STRANGERS…WHO HAVE TRAVELED THE ROAD BEFORE!

So, I finally got around to reading the advice of CT 399 students. The creative procrastination piece spoke to me. Apparently I was not just procrastinating…there is a name for that . I knew I had to complete this assignment, but I kept completing smaller projects that would take less time and less commitment. After reading […]

So, I finally got around to reading the advice of CT 399 students. The creative procrastination piece spoke to me. Apparently I was not just procrastinating…there is a name for that . I knew I had to complete this assignment, but I kept completing smaller projects that would take less time and less commitment. After reading the advice I don’t feel so bad, but I understand that the idea is to keep working. The idea of keeping the site going is a terrific idea. Right now I just put a little of everything (medley) on it, but I am trying to zero in on my interest. Pertinent to the was my understanding that I must do the following things below:

  1. Maintain my domain,  site, and my web hosting account. It is easy to do this after this site because reclaim hosting sends you an email reminder. I should renew and not procrastinate so I can continue to post and maintain my site.
  2. Keep adding work to my site. I have to keep adding work and in doing that, I realized that I have to challenge myself by attempting more complex projects.
  3. What I make outside of class is as important as what I make for class. I need to work more outside the classroom, this would take discipline on my part…I just can’t seem to have enough time in the day. However, I am willing to try.
  4. I Must Take responsibility for my work, develop sustainable working habits. This is probably the most important one to consider and I actually have to come up with ideas to support this more extensively.

So, there are a number of things I must change to catapult my success in the digital community. I am willing to give it a try!
