The Next Adventure

There is not much to report today. I shifted from catching up from being out of town to getting ready to leave town again. This next trip is going to give me the opportunity to shift the focus of this page back to poker.

My first stop on the coming trip will be Phoenix, AZ. I'll have a computer workshop to present, but I plan to find some time to play at a local casino. That will be a good warm-up. I'll report on the room I choose for all you traveling poker players like myself.

Next, I fly back to Charlotte to attend the NASCAR race with my wife before heading back to the airport to fly to VEGAS!!!! My plan for Vegas is to play massive amounts of poker, spend tons of time at the Bellagio watching the pros play in the Fiesta al Lago WPT event, and maybe make a side trip to the Grand Canyon or other scenic location.

After six days of the desert I get on another plane and head to Vancouver to help a customer with a computer performance problem. But there are poker rooms in the Vancouver area as well, so I'll play and report on what I find there as well. This type of trip doesn't always leave me much time for recreation, but, for my readers, I will give it my best effort.

So there you have the upcoming plan; two countries, three destinations, and lots of poker. It's going to be a good ride. I hope to meet some of you along the road.

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
