If you want privacy, the internet is not the place to be...

Hello all,

A few weeks ago, I had a interesting conversation with a 'friend' about my comment section on this blog. This 'friend' posted a comment to me about a post and someone else jumped in on the conversation.

My 'friend' was kinda of annoyed that this happened. I tried to explain to (for the sake of this post, let's call my 'friend', 'Lu-Lu') Lu-Lu that when you got any type of open forum (like this one, for instance), you can't stop anyone from jumping in and putting their two cents in. Even though you were addressing me to begin with, you got no right to say 'This is between A and B, C your way out.'

If you really wanted to talk to ME, there's other ways of doing it, like email, phone, etc...

I leave the comment section open for ANYONE and I do moderate it. (Even though I rarely get any comments worth zapping...)

So next time, you post something a comment on a public forum, don't be surprised that if someone else joins in the chat...

Thanks for reading.

Later!

If you wanna make money, a casino is not the place to do it...

Hello all:

After several months of a mishmash of silly and BS topics, I found a good topic to write about...gambling.

We have all seen the commercials for Las Vegas. It's painted as a 'anything goes' type of town. However, 'anything goes' would only apply if you got the money for it.

People come to places like Las Vegas and Reno for fun and the off chance they might make their fortune here. Let me tell you one thing...

SH*T AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN!

At least not to the average person. I will admit, I have seen people hit for big money in the casinos (and me wondering whose butt I have to kiss to get that type of luck.) But that is few and far between.

I have blew a few dollars here and there. A $20 here or $10 there. But for the most part, I have either broken even or come out broke.

The secret is to not let it rule your life. Gambling, as much fun as it is, is not gonna be the place to solve all your problems. Casinos are a business, they're there to MAKE money, not to lose it.

So if you want to blow $100 bucks trying your luck, fine. In the words of Kenny Rogers: 'Know when to hold them, and know when to fold them.'

Thanks for reading.

Later!

P.S.: My blog turns 2 years old next week. YAY!
