Craps: My Favourite Casino Game
Last Saturday, for the third time in a row, I won at craps. I have a natural affinity for this game because of my backgammon experience.

Unlike blackjack or other card games, the player gets to handle the tools of his trade. Also, the whole table so to speak, plays the same "hand" against the house. It's the underdogs versus the overdogs.

There are techiques that can be learned with regards to holding and throwing the dice as well as betting strategies.

"When you're hot you're hot and when you're not you're not".

One can play to win or pay for the entertainment.

Some Renovations Take Longer Than You Think
With a 25 year old underlay that looks and feels like crazy glue mush, it's going to take at least a week to finish off our bedroom. In the meantime, we get to sleep on the seldom used futon in the family room. Not exactly comfortable for two, but it's next to a cool fireplace which is good for sleeping.

I feel like a DP(displaced person)in my own house.

The Loretta Lynn Concert In Niagara Falls
Mood:  special
I'd like to point out that Elvis Presley and Loretta Lynn were born in the same year, 1935. Both of them were and still are legends in the music business. I'm lucky, that I saw one of those legends last night.

What makes Loretta unique is how she tells the story of her life through songs. It isn't the country favour that's important about this material , it's the authenticity in it.

Sissy Spacek captured Loretta's special qualities/talents in the biopic "Coal Miner's Daughter."

There's not many performers who can win a Granny at 69.

The concert was a real family affair with her daughter, brother-in-law and sister(Peggy Sue)contributing.

Loretta looked good and sounded great although she seemed to tire quickly(no doubt from her recent illness). Three stars.

The Big Push To Finish Off Bedroom Renovations
Mood:  caffeinated
Why do tomorrow what can be done today?

Well, just about everything in the bedroom has been placed in our office. I'm lucky that I have enough room to write this blog entry.

Over the next few days, not only do we intend to see Loretta Lynn in Niagara Falls, but we also want to rip up the old carpet in the bedroom, repaint the walls, hang new curtains and put down a good carpet. That should take about three days. Again, the Newfoundland beavers are getting the job done.

American Idol Returns: The Top 12
Mood:  hug me
The American Idol finalists this year are definitely better than the top 12 last year. Lots of good voices especially with the guys.

It will be a tough choice, but I favour Bo Bice because he has superior entertainment skills. Of the girls, Carrie Underwood impresses me the most. Reminds me of Faith Hill.

It should be a showdown between New Country and good old Rock and Roll.

The Barron Renovations Continue
Mood:  energetic
After renovating the garage, the bathroom and the office last year, we've finally got around to the bedroom. It's only going to be a new paint job and new carpet, but we've got to move some very heavy bureaus and other furniture to do it.

Both my wife and her son have no trouble doing this work, because they're Newfies. It's part of their cultural heritage to be handy around the house. They're real beavers and Canadian ones at that.
