Dam Is Not a Swear:
Started: 1931
Completed: 1935
Reason: Reclaiming of Land

Helpless Information: This dam was not created by the cross-dressing former CIA director (Director Hoover). Now was it funded by the Vacuum company (Hoover). Rather, it is named after the former President of the United States (President Hoover).

You and I both know that this photo is big because we're too busy working on the Vegas backlog to really pay attention to the Dam. But seriously, which is funnier? Las Vegas or the Hoover Dam? I think we've made the right choice.

Site A139. The quiet is overwhelming. The only sounds we hear are the hums of the motorhomes as older folk try to tune into CNN on their satellite dishes. Besides being a work day, today was also dish washing day. It's a much bigger affair when you have to do your dishes on the ground.
