from vegas@well.com

Hello, everyone...I've been pretty absent lately, mostly because my
cafe, the Enigma, has been so terribly busy. We're up to 14 employees now!

We were honored to again win in the 1998 Best of Las Vegas Awards, this
time for "Best Art Scene." Many of you have stopped by to visit when in
Las Vegas, which is wonderful. You may be interested to know that we
are about to celebrate our fifth anniversary, with ten days of art,
music and spoken word events.

I redesigned our web site http://radiant.org/enigma/ to bring it all
up to date, and included an ongoing scrapbook of pictures of the Enigma
and its people and things, if you want to get a better idea of what we
look like.

Some of you will remember that on our third birthday in 1996, a lot of
WELLbeings sent postcards to help us celebrate our grand re-opening
after renovations. While many of those cards are still around, many
have been lost to time and careless coffee drinkers.

If any of you are into it, we'd love to get a bunch of new cards from
all over the world (in the scrapbook you can see some of the cards
pasted to the front of the coffee counter...) People love seeing all
the cards, and we love hearing from our far-flung friends.

If you want to send postcards, our address is:
Enigma Garden Cafe (or just "Enigma")
918 South Fourth Street
Las Vegas, NV 89101

Thanks everyone...even when I am not online so much, you are my
extended family who has helped keep me going all these years. Smooch!

What shall we do with this topic, people?
And what about photography? Any experts amongst us? Because if these two are not going to happen, I should kill it. I don't want any dead topics in this conference.

Perhaps we should take a look at the website and see if there's anything
to spur a conversation, first.

Good idea - or just think of SOMETHING to discuss in there; it's such a neat name for a topic, I find. Would be a shame if nothing came of it.

It's great, Terry - but I don't quite know how to incorporate it into this conference. Should atomic blasts not go to Science?
I was more thinking along the lines of devoting the topic to this cafè, while discussing something to do with art in here. Or we can use it as the 'couch' of Art. Instead of sitting around on the couch and being silly, we can sit here and be silly. I don't know - what do you all think? Let's have some more suggestions!
And what about photography? I know ziltch about photography, so I don't quite know how to get the topic going, so either someone's going to have to help me out, or I'll kill the topic until someone interested enough creates it again, and brings it to life. I just don't see the point in having topics that attract no attention whatsoever, do you know what I mean?

SQUIRT?!?!?! Is this for real??

I can only imagine what the advert must look like:

(FADE IN: corny Elvis ballad)
"For years now my husband and I have been trying for a baby. We have tried the usual method, hormone treatment, artificial insemination, everything - but without success. Then someone told me about Squirt. Not only can you buy it in your local supermarket for a dollar, but it tastes JUST like the real thing - but with bubbles, of course. Now here I am, just look at me - seven months pregnant, and happier than I've ever been in my entire life. Every night I go down on my knees, and thank God for a dri
k called Squirt."

Hot back to the topic flash. I read this by vegas today, for those of you
who have wondered why she hasn't been around much.


#821 of 821: This is the real (vegas)
Mon Nov 9 '98 (11:02) 54 lines

Hi.

I can't believe it's been four months since I logged in!

So, here's the scoop:

1)I am alive, although not *exactly* fine. I have been struggling with
some
moderately serious health issues, in particular a preliminary diagnosis
of cancer. Don't freak out...I'm doing the things I supposed to be
doing, although I've been a bit hampered by a lack of insurance. I'll
let you know if anything dramatic develops, but for right now I am
stable, well-drugged and continued the discovery process. The drugs are
handling the pain I've been experiencing quite well, and as an
extra-added bonus I've lost fifty pounds! (when you're as big as I am,
50 pounds is a drop in the bucket!)

2) I am now doing Enigma alone. My partner Julie has gone on to other
projects, and I took over the whole company. This, of course, reduces
my fre time even more. Enigma is doing pretty well, although the weird
weather this year has hurt us (as I write this it's 48 degrees, sunny
and the wind is blowing thirty miles and hour. Not a good thing for an
outdoor cafe.)

3) I am finally renovating the house...floors, ceilings, windows,
bathroom, yard, etc. Again, a lot of time being eaten. The way I'm
being able to do this is that I have a faince who is buying into the
house by funding the renovations. A fiance?....

4) Yes, I am getting married to a fine woman by the name of Mildred
Leah Echevaria Ben-David. She was my high-school sweetheart, who I
asked to marry me when I was 16. She finally said yes. In the
intervening years she was living in Israel and giving birth to two of my
three beautiful goddaughters. That was before she came out as a dyke,
of course. The irony that a dyke and a fag who were childhood sweethearts
are getting married at 39 years old is not lost on us. But we are in
fact in love with each other, and make a good pair.

We will be having a simple civil ceremony and then host a reception at
the Enigma, probably in the first week of December. We are currently
waiting for the divorce papers from her husband (they never bothered
to get divorced.) He's coming to Vegas this weekend to see his daughter
and attend a convention, and is supposed to bring the papers with him.
We'll see.

My illness is annoying, but it is made a lot more bearable by Millie's
presence in my life.

OK, that's all for now. If you questions or comments, email me, because
I don't know when I'll be back online again. I'll try to make it
sooner, next time, though.

Thanks for thinking of me...

Len

from Lenadams Dorris mailto://lenadams@radiant.org

OK, everybody...I know it's tacky to so ruthlessly self-promote
(and to use a mass mailing to do it, as well!) but I thought you
might get a kick out of the following websites:

http://www.playboy.com/prowl/profiles/
(an interview with me on Playboy Online about the weirdness that
is Vegas, conducted by none other than Jim and Michael Monk; the
Playboy site is volatile, so I don't know how long the interview
will be up. If you miss it, I have a mirror on my homepage at

http://radiant.org/people/lenadams/playboyindex.html I'm particularly

fond of the picture on the site, showing as it does the new, svelter
me...)

-and-

http://lasvegasweekly.com/features/vegasverse.html

(online version of an article by Geoff Carter in Las Vegas Weekly,
profiling me and fellow fellow Dayvid Figler; includes a rather
distinctive caricature...)

Don't worry, I'm not taking myself too seriously...but it's kind
of a hoot to see pieces of oneself through the eyes of others...

Once again, thanks to all of you for supporting me, and supporting
arts and culture in Southern Nevada...

I think that I'm in the clear on that one. I don't follow that particular trail
Look again, I said trail, not tail.

ha-ha!
Pity you weren't here then. This girl came on, advertising estate or something, but promising the guys a few other kicks on top. And they all fell for her like toy soldiers, heck, twenty suggestive responses to her advert in one day, I'd say. Of course it turned out the fab market babe was merely using the spring in a clever way for free advertising - she NEVER returned, and all the guys were heartbroken for weeks!

Cute! Was she found out, or did she just post and leave?

Believe me Len is not in the fab babe hit and run category. I reposted her
things and she's got quite a story, as you can tell from above. She's
anything but crassly commercial like our beloved wham-bam-thank-you-m'am
babe.

No, absolutely! After all this is her topic!

I just thought it might amuse Tim to learn the funny fab market babe facts.
Anyway, Tim, so the fab market babe just never came back - which more or less opened our jelly men's eyes. So I suggested they kill the bitch, and her topic was frozen. BRRRR!
