Silver lining

Yes, the two checks for translation and editing job from Merrill Corporation are here! They always pay on time though someone seems to forget to change my new address in their database because the checks arrived at the former house I was staying.

And my friend Shirley is now recuperating from lung surgery. Things to be glad about after the stormy Friday the 13th. Thank God!

El viernes el decimotercero no es realmente un día malo. Las cosas malas que sucedieron a usted dura eran el viernes probablemente debido a los acontecimientos aleatorios que acaban de suceder. Yo no creo en la mala suerte. Creo que somos más en el control que los mitos de espíritus malos supuestos de estar influyendo nuestro vive.

¿Por qué experimentó su amigo la cirugía pulmonar? Soy apenas curioso. Espero que usted no tenga incoveniente en mi preguntar.

Usted tiene un gran "weblog" aquí. Yo lo he ligado en mina.

Perdóneme si mi español no suena demasiado bueno. Ha sido mucho tiempo desde que hablé este idioma encantador. Yo no obtengo práctica aquí.

¡Tome el cuidado y lo ve otra vez!

Hola Dr. Emer! Gracias por tus comentarios. Y escribes bien más o menos el español. Es normal cometer errores y te los voy a describir en email quizás.

Tampoco creo en las superticiones. Pero a veces te pasan cosas y no precisamente en el viernes 13 (para tu información aquí en España tienen otro día de mala suerte, el "martes" 13 - supongo eso data desde la Inquisición aunque no estoy del todo seguro) que te hacen creer que sí suceden cosas raras. Lo que me pasó el pasado viernes seguramente no tiene nada que ver con mi suerte. Es mi elección de quedar con la chica hasta el mediodía lo que me metió luego en apuros para no poder llegar al juzgado.

Mi amiga de EE.UU. (Estados Unidos) tuvo ya un historial de cáncer en el pulmón derecho. Hace sólo una semana que le han intervenido para el pulmón izquierdo a causa de fumar a lo mejor. Ahora se recupera. Dice que Dios le ha dado más vida porque tiene más cosas buenas a hacer en este mundo. ¡Que así sea! Estoy muy feliz por ella.

Voy a hacer también un link a tu página (blog). Hasta pronto.

¿El martes el decimotercero como un día de mala suerte? ¿No piensa usted que los españoles exageran estos conceptos de días de "badluck?"

Soy feliz para su amigo. Es verdad. El hombre hace su mejor, pero en el fin es Dios que decidirá lo que es mejor.

Muchas gracias para ligar mi blog.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

So I pulled out the old credit card -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-ValveDock-Carbon-Edition-2.html]Fatman iTube Valvedock Carbon[/url] and I've gotta tell ya I am pleasantly surprised. I actually listened to one at a friend's house a few months back and just couldn't get that music out of my head because it blew me away. I searched high and low for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I called them first and asked every question I could think of and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Dispatch was very fast. Everything was as it should be. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they dispatch outside of Australia but you won't be sorry if they do.

Really happy...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
