Cirque du Soleil's 'LOVE'
Cirque du Soleil’s ‘LOVE’

WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!

ALL TOGETHER NOW is a new DVD about how the Cirque du Soleil LOVE project came to be, starting with the personal friendship between George Harrison and Cirque founder Guy Laliberte. It also features an insider’s view of early meetings of the Cirque and Apple Corps Ltd. creative team - Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon, Olivia Harrison, Sir George Martin and Giles Martin - and reveals the creative differences among them about how some of the songs would be portrayed visually.

A LAS VEGAS man hit a $43 million jackpot, but not the kind you and I aspire to. Kyle Kimoto has been convicted in southern Illinois for a telemarketing scheme where consumers paid $159 for a credit card, but instead received an application for a pay pre-loaded credit card. More than 300,000 people fell victim to the scam.

Pennies can be almost as easy because you just move the decimal point to the left two places making a 1,000 coin jackpot equal to $10. But nickel machines can be a little confusing. The trick is to take half the jackpot, drop a zero and add a dollar sign. So half of a 2,500 coin jackpot is 1,250, dropping a zero gives you 125 then add a dollar sign making 2,500 nickels worth $125.

NICKEL MATH .... Last year’s winner is Joey Chestnut of San Jose, who put away 66 dogs and buns in 12 minutes.

MORE THAN three dozen residents of the upscale condominium Turnberry Place are putting their homes up for sale. It’s not what you’d think ... they’re not caught up in the subprime fiasco or the economic downturn - these folks have bucks. They’re dumping their condos because construction of the Fontainebleau parking garage next door is blocking their view!

THE NO. 1 city for stolen cars this year (per capita) is Modesto, Calif., taking the title away from last year’s winner Las Vegas (now No. 2). To reduce the number of thefts and put the thieves behind bars, Metro PD uses bait cars and has made 201 arrests so far.

THE CALIFORNIA Legislature is looking at a bill to study the legalization of Internet poker for its residents. This may be the first step to making any form of betting via the Internet legal in the U.S.
