This is why I don't gamble

Neither if my picks to win the Ironman came through. Peter Reid finished third in a time of 8:20, a full twenty minutes faster than last year, but still six minutes off the pace. Heather Fuhr finished a disappointing 25th in the women's field, I wonder if she had trouble or got sick. Her run time was really slow, for her... Still her time of 10:03 is not really shameful. Windsor's two Iron(wo)man competitors really showed their stuff on Saturday.

Shelley McKee has great lead up and time in Kona stories on her blog. As well as some pictures, but those seem to be giving her template trouble. She finished in 14:36. I'm sure she'll remember that forever.

Blaire Kniaziew lived up to her qualifying time and finished in 10:27. That was good enough for eighth, in her age group, IN THE WORLD. Insane.

Getting back to gambling... Darcy wasn't eating her chunk of burger tonight. Instead she was rolling them like dice. She's 16 months and playing craps already. Casino Windsor, here we come! Although we've really got to put a stop to playing craps at the dinner table.

Ummm, wouldn't another reason you don't gamble be that you're a Sallie?!

Playing craps at the table is better than crapping at the table.

Crapping at the table is a nightly event. There doesn't seem to be anything we can do about that. Maybe this is just a different take on 'crapping at the table'.

The online casino is an improvement in convenience of the brick and mortar casino. Online casinos today offer a complete software solution to all of gaming desires. You may download and intstall the casino software on your PC, but many online gambling sites also provide the player with the option very quick flash or java games.
