I admit to not liking all the recaps that are going on about the year 2011. Droll. Boring. We’ve read it and lived it already, let it disappear into the past. Continue reading
So…I’m hanging out at home on the edge of dark and cold, really happy to be here instead of being in the middle of light and noise. I’ve been thinking back to more than one New Year’s Eve spent in the dealer’s box. Continue reading
My relationship with PokerWorks has gone through a lot of different stages over the years – including different programmers, servers, CMS, and a lot of other things that keep me hopping to always play catch up. Continue reading
MERRY CHRISTMAS! It’s a desert kind of day, sunshine all around, chilly but OK, the only snow is up in the mountains. Feast and feeding going on next door at my sis’s in mid afternoon; along with the wish that everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
It isn’t funny but it is. Riot never seems to slow down as he spins like a whirlwind on his way through the argumentative narrative that follows every command he doesn’t want to hear, and dances to his latest favorite song “I’m sexy and I know it” while he’s emitting an air of “I don’t give a damn what is going on over there, I’m over here.” Continue reading
and found a safe in the desert. It’s a floor model, almost as tall as me, with a combination lock, a Meilink, with the door ripped right off, laying about 10 feet from the safe. A compartment that fit inside the safe with individual cubicles (one that could be locked) was still in the safe. It was new decor for the normal garbage that is mostly dumped out on BLM (Bureau of Land Management) property where we walk. Continue reading
A week has come and gone since my last post. How the hell? I managed to come down or wake up to something that shot my whole system out into space a mile or so high and then slammed me back down into a wolf spider hole in one neat little package. OUCH! I’ve been sick. Continue reading
It’s the time of year when all turkeys must fear for their lives and try to escape having to dress for the big feast that showcases their wonderful breasts and thighs. Continue reading
Unfortunately for us Barry Tanenbaum won’t be back to grace a poker table with his always cheerful demeanor and clean, whole attitude about the game of poker. His last post on his website was in July 2009. Linda Johnson’s tribute to Barry is only a small picture of how much he meant to the poker world.

I knew Barry from dealing to both him and his wife, but not personally away from the table. All I can say is we need more players like him. RIP Barry.
We were up and out of the house at 9 a.m. and on our way – we were in California within a few minutes (Yah, I live that close) and out over the scab lands and terrain that leads to Death Valley if we turned right and Tecopa if we turned left. When we hit the festival about 5 vendors in a parking lot of a hot springs resort that is quiet and unsophisticated was all there was to the whole production. There’s an office/art gallery of sorts and a ‘Bistro’ behind it in the parking lot too. Continue reading
