Bloggers aren’t noted for the above.  I think it is a poker player thing.  But, this weekend only one of my favorite geek sites can dress you in splendor at the Winter Gathering.   Who knows? maybe it could be a uniform. Read more…

Technology Leader

I was shocked to learn that Sparky is the technology guru in his department.  That was among the a whole list of shocks about him when he sent me this video showing off the I-Pad his family got him. Other shocks were: speaks German at home; child bride; gourmet chef; growing beard.  Gotta be a mid-life crisis somewhere in there. Read more…

A lot of recent chatter in Sin City about haberdashery.  The emphasis is on a plebeian item loved by baseball players and hip-hop artiste. It is the baseball cap and wearing it has gone through many phases.  One aging baseballer grasping for lost youth has been in the Las Vegas headlights.  Like the obvious bluff, he’s been called down by his peers.

I love words.  But, only to a point.  I mean what not to like when you run into a word like succinct.   I always read It pays to Increase your Word Power in the Reader’s Digest.  I never met a word I didn’t want to know.  “Lets make it a true daily double, Alex.”

Every once in a while the old axiom about a picture being worth a thousand words brings meaning to a word at multiple levels.  Well, I want to give the guy some credit.  My ancient Greek is also suspect. I give you… Read more…

So, Mojo is talking about another tour at the WSOP.   Had to remind me of the black day I almost won the main event.  Damn!  I thought I’d set that aside and here he brings it to the fore again.  Shame on you, Sir. Read more…

Second Coming

Well, Jesus Ferguson’s travails are document on the net and in the courts.  He has been demoted to being one of the older gods with thoughts going to his failure to have his heel properly immersed in the River Styx.  Therefor, it is obvious we need a new poker god.   The following is proposed: Read more…
