    Betting

    I am not really interested in betting but I understand that they have Roulette and other electronic betting gadgets are all fixed. I wonder if those who play on these realise that.

    The odds always favor the house, if that's what you mean.

    When we go to a casino we take a certain amount of cash and after that is gone, that's it. Last time I went I did leave with more money in my pocket than what I came in with. It's entertainment for us, really ... we never intend to ever get rich from playing in the casinos ... and, btw, we rarely go, maybe once a year at the most.

    If you're interested in online gambling,
    there was a big Hollywood movie about an online gambler,
    who felt he was being ripped off, so he went to the offshore island to find out.
    A big actor played the lead, a fun movie to watch.
    It's supposed to be a true story.
    You don't have to convince me getting ripped off is real.
    Even computer companies call downloading a tune ripping it,
    when the complete phrase is ripping it off.

    Here in Niagara Falls, where there are three provincial casinos,
    the oldest one has a space for "free live bands" on the main floor.
    There is a bar for fruit juices, pop and coffee, all free, just no waitress any more.
    Lots of musicians like to hang out and listen to hot area bands,
    and there's a big balconey out there, overlooking the Falls, for smokers.

    I take my biggest gamble just waking up every day. For real.
