  • Have to love it!

    I stop at a casino on the way back from my week long train accident versus tractor trailer clean up. 

    The bac table is busy, new shoe.  Looked like this:

    B--P
    B--P
        P
        P
        P (panda 8)


    So I sit down.  I changed a thousand dollars and put it all on the Banker.  For many reasons.  Beginning of the shoe, chances are 4-6 will cut, everyone lost the last 3 Players because  they were determined to wager the 'cut' after the 2 Bankers and 2 matching Players.  Then the Panda came out and the highest majority of panda and F-7's do 'cut' to the opposite side.

    So, I wagered the bank and said to myself 2 Bankers and then 'cut' to the one Player and I will leave. 

    This is what happened.

    B--P--B
    B--P--B
        P
        P
        P(8)

    So I pressed and pulled it all down and put up only $50 on the players side and of course it made another Banker.  Everyone else cited '2 by 2' and pressed most of their bets up as well and the whole table was wagering Players side.  We all lost that one.   I got up and colored up.  I watched the people.  The all switched back to the Banker side, while most pointed to the 5 Players and citing, 'it will match the Player side'. 

    It turned into this:

    B--P--B
    B--P--B
        P--B
        P
        P(8)

    Then they all talked and huddled up.  Lots of talk and pointing to the board.  They all wagered on the Bankers side like I said except for one person with a small wager on the Player side.  They argued and asked him to take it off.  He did.  Then it makes a Player with  four monkeys and then a 7 for the player and a 6 for the Bankers.

    Oh lord, thank goodness the casinos put the electronic score boards in, makes it so much easier for the players to see what is actually going on, huh??

  • John Travolta.  A great actor!  From his early days of Saturday Night Fever to The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3.  He is from New Jersey, yeah a metro N.Y./N.J. guy.  From the TV shoe, Welcome Back Kotter where he played Vinnie Barbarino to Saturday Night Fever to Urban Cowboy to Pulp Fiction and many other movies. 

    Hey, some of my favorite actors are Al Pacino, Robert Di Niro, Clint Eastwood, Jack Nicholson.  All great and all in so many famous movies and roles.  Many made history in different ways. 

    But John Travolta, something about the realism of himself into the roles he assumes on the screen. 

    He is a pilot as well and was inducted into the 'Living Legends of Aviation' because  of a near collision flying his Gulfstream and a commercial airliner he avoided over Washing DC a few years back. 

    The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3 a great movie, especially being from NYC and NJ.  The scene with the 60 second countdown after he shoots the motorman and wants the MTA train dispatcher brought back instead of dealing with the NYPD Hostage Negotiator.  Fantastic scene.  Strong--Real Like--Energy--Intense.  "The city of New York killed Jerry".  "The biggest rat hole in the world killed him".  Then when he says with his on going ranting, "I know how things work.  Everything doesn't seem to appear like what its". 

    Ever since Saturday Night Fever.  Oh lord--86th Street.  Lots of memories for myself there!  Under the "EL", meaning the elevated subway which actually does run above 86th Street in Brooklyn.  Lenny's Pizza shop not fictitious, real.    That double decker pizza that IMO made pizza eating history with everyone doing the same thing.  That legendary pizza stop conceived in the beginning of the movie.


    Although I am from the Bronx, NY not Brooklyn, I claim fame to Jerome Avenue which also has an "EL".  But lots of time & memories in Brooklyn and on 86th Street as well.  Brooklyn is where my father was born and raised.   

    John Travolta, a legend, a great actor all these years.

  • You know, I was thinking when someone called me up and talked about meeting somewhere for something in a business partnership.  The conversation goes on about flying or driving, etc.

    We started in about airlines, security, etc.  We started talking about the flight itself and years ago how we used to get a full meal in-flight and all that.  Then we talked about the pilot and his announcements.

    Why is it they always tell us what altitude we will be flying at?  "We will be climbing to and maintaining 37,500 feet".  Why are they telling us?  Shouldn't the pilots be telling the air control towers?  All i do is sit there and divide 5,280 feet into whatever number he gave us and clalcuate how many miles the fall will be from!

    Instead of all that banter about how many feet, what about telling us that you double and triple checked the fuel tanks and they were filled prior to take off?  How about telling us you double checked all the safety stuff and the engines, etc.?

    Another thing.  Why does the pilot always say, "This is Captain Joe from the cockpit".  Well, I sure hope you are in the cockpit and not the bathroom or the luggage storage area under the plane!  Why always...."From the cockpit"?

    The only other thing about flying and all the worthless announcements, why is it that one side of the plane always gets all the good stuff to look at, "And for those of you on the right side of the plane, we have a fantastic view of ........." etc.,  it always seems the other side has all the noticeable and cool stuff to look at.  Why?

  • I am working on a detailed article with lots of thoughts and years of experience reaching back and defining 'baccarat emotional intelligence'. Hope to get some input on it, I don't know how much longer before I can start posting it but I'm working on it. Maybe with the blizzard coming this weekend it'll slow things down around here and I'll go get a few hours in on it?

  • Pulling up to the office this morning, all the snow is gone except one little mound, this is the same mound that was about 8 to 10 foot high a few days ago!  The other picture from before the weekend is above:
