That is the start of a comment to Mr. Sheldon Adelson from a group of purported Iranian hackers.  He isn’t anymore popular with them than those who’ve enjoyed online poker. Read more…

Use that too much and you really don’t sound very with it.  These days it is a major part of my vocabulary.  The telephone has become an enemy.  Conversations can become a minefield.  This all really kicked in a year ago August with an incident that sent me to the emergency room. Read more…

That last post was humor about what you can and can’t eat.  There is a lot of conventional wisdom out there. The First Lady is an adamant example.  So I found the following particularly interesting.  And please pass the butter.

Income Inequity

November 18th, 2014 3 comments

Income inequity might be two of the dumbest words ever to issue forth from politicians mouths.  They climb into their bully pulpits and lament about this horrid situation.  Poppycock!  Pure, unadulterated poppycock.  Now I’d love to be ten or a hundred or better yet a thousand times richer than I am.  Who wouldn’t.  But don’t expect me to lament I wasn’t born with the silver spoon but darn glad it happened where it did.

Sleep — perchance to dream

November 3rd, 2014 2 comments

As I aged, my sleeping habits have changed.  Sleep was uninterrupted and deep when I was young.  I could easy sleep in at times.  With age, that has changed.  I’m up earlier and don’t sleep as well.  I attributed it to the aches and pains that go with age.  Read more…

Georg and Yortuk Festrunk — Squared

October 2nd, 2014 2 comments

Do you remember Georg and Yortuk Festrunk?  Well, it may not be names that spring liltingly to lip.  You might remember them better as Two Wild and Crazy Guys on SNL.  Yeah,  aka Dan Aykroid and Steve Martin.  Not fellows you’d project to a final table, poker-wise.  What they do seem to have is a style that was obvious in the polyester era on downtown Vegas streets.

Yes, today is International Talk like a Pirate Day.  I first met it when I started playing poker online.  That was right after Chris Moneymaker’s win; so, it would have been 2003.  It started in 1995; so I was late to the party. Read more…

Not just another day

September 11th, 2014 2 comments

I awoke to hear about the first plane and watch on TV the second. What transpired made a horror film look like a silly poseur. The fortitude and courage displayed made comic book heroes pale in comparison. For days we sat at the TV watching the media microanalyses things. We still are trying to get our minds around what happened and is happening. Read more…

Dystopic Times Ahead?

August 22nd, 2014 2 comments

A dystopia (from the Greek ???- and ?????, alternatively, cacotopia,[1] kakotopia, cackotopia, or anti-utopia) is a community or society that is in some important way undesirable or frightening. It is the opposite of a utopia. — Wikipedia

I got a note from an old friend, Barb.  Sweet lady and sister of my best childhood friend.   It was a link to a video that looks pretty daunting — even dystopic. Read more…
