Bring back The Typewriter

Bring back The Typewriter

My connection on the Internet broke down today -- again.

I am nowhere near an expert when it comes to repairing my personal computer. I leave that job to Jeff, one of my two roommates, who is the house expert and who can fix anything electronic.

Now I realize the Internet is a great boon to humanity. The people living in the Caribbean on the islands where I once worked -- St. Kitts, Nevis and St. Maarten -- think the Internet is a gift to mankind and they are correct.

The islanders use their computers to set up businesses, make friends, and earn money in a variety of ways. The Internet supplies them with the knowledge that mankind has been able to accumulate over the centuries between wars and rumors of wars.

But -- and this is a big but -- computers are not perfect.

In the early days of the Internet I remember how a bolt of lightning on a clear day could instantly wipe out all the words of a story I had been writing. It was not saved. That technology had not yet been worked out, so I would have to go back to the drawing board and do everything over.

It was a pain I had to learn to live with.

I use my computer for so many things. When I want to brush up on my strategy for poker, horse racing, or controlling my throws at a dice table, I do a simple search and the knowledge appears instantly on the screen. You can't beat that kind of service.

I write my stories for these websites on my computer. In the old days when I used my Remington typewriter, I would sometimes struggle for a lead and throw away sheet after sheet of paper until I came up with the proper words.

Early in my college days, I came across a magazine article that stated Ernest Hemingway, my hero, wrote his books standing up. He claimed it kept the oxygen flowing properly to his brain and helped him think. I tried that a few times but it tired me and I gave it up.

I loved using a typewriter to create my stories. There was a rhythm and flow of words on a typewriter that just don't exist on a computer.

Progress is wonderful, but it does have its limitations. Today I can take my PC with me wherever I go. I can instantly pull up whatever information I need for whatever subject that interests me.

The first typewriter I ever used belonged to a neighbor named Mary. I was 15 and my father had built our family a house on Sutersville Hill in Western Pennsylvania.

Mary was a sweet young woman who lived in the house next to ours. When she learned I was an aspiring author, she insisted I use her typewriter to compose my stories. I will never forget her generosity. I borrowed her typewriter and didn't return it until the summer ended and I returned to school where typewriters were available.

I used a typewriter to cover breaking news stories for the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner for four glorious years. I covered murders, earthquakes, criminal trials, fires and plane crashes. It was heady stuff for a young journalist and my typewriter never let me down.

But when the Internet breaks down through overuse by the people of the world or for whatever reason, I find myself secretly wishing that the world would bring back the typewriter. It will never happen, of course. The typewriter belongs to the ages. But it's a nice thought.

The Night Nevada Went Black

The Night Nevada Went Black
The Night Nevada Went Black

You gotta say one thing for human nature: it wins every time.

Take prohibition. America's political leaders put their pointed heads together and decided to yield to the pressure of women across the country who wanted to stop their husbands, sons and uncles from drinking, so they passed legislation that prohibited alcohol from being sold.

That, of course, opened the floodgates for people like Al Capone and Dutch Schultz to load up their liquor trucks and warehouses with illegal booze and make a fortune in the process.

Prohibition didn't last very long. But during its heyday, there were murders, hijackings, bribery of law enforcement officers and prosecutors and enough corruption of public officials to keep the presses rolling and sell millions of newspapers.

Eventually and inevitably, human nature triumphed and the politicians retreated and gave the public what it wanted -- the right to purchase and drink alcohol.

Something similar to prohibition occurred in Nevada in 1910. By the end of the 19th century, political leaders in nearly every Western state or territory had passed laws prohibiting gambling. Only one state -- Nevada -- permitted gambling.

Nevadans have always prided themselves on being different. They resisted the pressures of the anti-gambling crowd as long as they could, but it finally caught up to them. In 1909 with great reluctance, the Nevada legislature joined the crowd and passed a law making it illegal to gamble in the Silver State.

The law stunned the citizens of Nevada. It went into effect on Oct. 1, 1910.

On Sept. 30, all the casinos and card rooms in Nevada were filled to capacity. Even people who had never gambled crowded into the dens of iniquity to see what a gambling establishment was all about. They drank, smoke, and bet their money on spinning wheels, cards, dice and green felt tables operated by smiling men with mustaches.

The games were so crowded you had to stand in line to make a wager. It was bedlam and the casino owners made more money on that final day of legal gambling than they would have made in a week of normal operations.

On Oct. 1, the lights went out in all the casinos. Nevada went black.

Well, sort of. The gambling went underground. There were people who knew where the illegal games were operating and word got around fast. All you had to do was ask and somebody would give you the correct information and directions on where to go.

The illegal games continued for the next two decades. Finally, tired of losing all those millions of tax dollars they would have collected, the state legislators passed laws that once again made it legal to gamble in Nevada. And it's been that way ever since.

When it Rains it Pours

When it Rains it Pours
When it Rains it Pours

The month of April is a great month for one of our LCB, 'Hero Members!'' She had to make several withdrawals this month to collect her winnings. So, there was no doubt that she was our April's first, 'Biggest Weekly Winner!"

Krystalkitty, aka, kathy.anderson had some of us doing a double take when she recently, posted screenshots on the forum. The first screenshot was a wonderful surprise to us and undoubtedly to kathy too! She was playing RTG's, Nova 7s and hit the bonus round. 

At the end of the bonus, the following statement appeared, 'FEATURE COMPLETE, you've won $3,317.75!" This was great, but it was just the beginning! Her next win was much smaller, $413.76, also on Nova 7 and soon after, our winner decided to cashout, leaving some playing cash behind.

The following day, we were surprised to see her post another screenshot. Along with the screenshot she said, "Withdrew a nice amount of money, and get some to play with and then got this:" A nice win from the bonus feature of 'Shark School' for $1,392.88!

The next screenshot our hot spinner posted, left us almost speechless. It was a single line winner, on a $5 spin! The win totaled $3,365.25 on Ronin! Now, you'd think this was time to count our blessings or count our winnings, but she continued to spin. When she hit the single line win on Ronin, she said, "Guess you just never know."

Believe it or not, our Hero Member continued to spin and several hours later, posted another screenshot. This one was from Ricky Valens, La Bamba. This was a $7.50 single spin with a reward of $2,250.00.

Kathy was not ready to call it quits and I guess she knew best. On April 1st, she posted her final screenshot from the RTG game, Fantasy Mission Force! The win was on one of the bonus features an ended in wins totaling, $1,207.75. After the screenshot, the winner posted, "Here is another great screenshot on the new game! I bet I got over 100 free spins. It's called the Kaboom feature. Like it a lot:)"

Wow, over 100 spins, sounds like a great game!

We asked Ms Anderson how much she cashed out and she replied " I never kiss and tell;The casino and I are the only ones who know what I withdraw:)"

This is the second time our member was playing at Grande Vegas Casino when she was winning, so we asked her if this was her favorite casino and she replied, "Is Grande Vegas my favorite? At this time I would have to say YES! RTG are for sure my fav Platform."

Even though we don't know exactly how much our big winner cashed out. We can say for sure that the amount was big! Did she pick all the right games? Were all the games, the right games to play that day? We may never know! In our member's case, there is only one thing that we can say for sure. When it rains it pours!

Congratulations girl, great job!

Wild Woman of The West

Latest Casino Bonuses
Wild Woman of The West
Wild Woman of The West

On a summer day in 1852, a dust-covered stagecoach from San Francisco came to a screeching halt in Nevada City, CA. There was only one passenger aboard -- an attractive well-dressed young woman wearing a stylish hat.

Single women were a scarcity in the early days of the wild west. Her arrival drew curious and even lustful glances from the cowboys, gold prospectors, gamblers and even clergymen who were lucky enough to see the arrival of Eleanore Dumont.

She was dressed a little flamboyantly with jewelry and a low-cut gown. But it was evident to those who saw her that she was not a lady of the evening as prostitutes were called. And the men were also pleased that she was not a school teacher or social worker who frowned on whiskey and gambling, both of which were prominent in Nevada City.

Miss Dumont had a delightful French accent as well as an attractive downy fuzz on her upper lip. One of the men removed his hat and escorted her from the stagecoach. He followed her like an obedient puppy dog to a hotel a block away from where she registered herself.

The eligible males and a few who were not eligible took great interest in Eleanore Dumont. They noted she smoked cigarettes that she rolled herself and drank fine wine. She carried herself like a lady and appeared to be chaste. She did not go out of her way to attract men, but neither did she drive them away.

She was a gambler -- one of the best -- and she opened a game that quickly grew into one of the most respected poker games in town.

California was still reeling from the economic effects of the gold strike. There were many prospectors in Nevada City whose pockets were heavy with gold. In her attractive, almost virginal style, Dumont managed to relieve them of much of the weight of the heavy precious metal.

At first, the men who played in her game did it out of curiosity. But the curiosity grew into admiration. In order to play at her poker table, she insisted that the men wear jackets, refrain from profanity, and not engage in fisticuffs or other violence. She also ordered them to remove their hats. The popularity of her gambling enterprise literally exploded, forcing her to move to a larger facility.

She hired dealers and other assistants and became wealthy. After several years, the economic prosperity of Virginia City began slowing down and Dumont bid a sad adieu to the town. She moved to other places to run gambling games -- Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Montana and South Dakota. She was successful everywhere she traveled.

Then age caught up with her and she began to lose her beauty. By the time she was 40, she had put on pounds and the wispy downy hairs on her upper lip had turned into a mustache. She had switched her drinking from wine to whiskey. While she made some of her money gambling, she made even more of it by going to bed with her customers who had started calling her Madame Moustache.

She moved to Fort Benton, Montana and opened a gambling saloon and brothel in a two-story building. The place had no touch of elegance. It was rundown with a dozen small rooms on the second floor.

A steamboat man who had heard of Madame Moustache came to the place because he wanted to play against her. By then Dumont was considerably overweight and her moustache was quite pronounced. He told her he either wanted to lose his $200 to her or use it to win a considerable amount of money.

She smiled and they began playing. She cleaned him out.

As he rose to leave, she signaled to one of her employees and insisted the man have a special drink on the house. It was a glass of milk. He returned to his steamship with nothing but memories.

Elaine Dumont's life ended tragically. She moved to Bodie, CA., set up a gambling house, and in 1879 decided she had had enough of life..She wandered out of town and shot herself to death.

Institutional Investors Rekindle Their Love For Bitcoin

Institutional Investors Rekindle Their Love For Bitcoin

It's not off-base to talk about clouds and silver linings when discussing and contemplating Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in general. Since we're long into spring of 2018 already, it's safe to say that the phenomenal year that was 2017 will not be repeated this time. The tumble Bitcoin took in the first quarter was just too much, but now it seems as if there is something good coming out of its supposed demise.

Despite the fact that Bitcoin has dropped heavily – very heavily, as much as by 70% since its peak value of almost $20,000 in December 2017 – it has actually started to gain new momentum in terms of interest from institutional investors who are believing in Bitcoin again. For the first time in months, “serious money is entering the market” - those are the words of Jeffrey Van de Leemput, Cryptocampus analyst. “A couple days ago I helped set up a 200k BTC transaction for Chinese buyers…Soros, etc., are coming in, we will now see the start of the real bubble,” he added.

As the cryptocurrency is currently trading for $8300 per coin, these events are perfectly in line with what was already predicted by Smart Valor's chief executive officer, Olga Feldmeier, who said: “A strong break above the $8,000 USD area is having the potential to comprise the ignition for the next bull phase, for which a lot of investors were waiting for a long time and will be happy to support now.”

Ari Paul, chief investment officer of BlockTower Capital is not as surprised, as he already commented that this institutional investment is inevitable for cryptocurrencies. He commented, “Even if they never believe in it, as an asset class, they’re smart enough to recognize the alpha opportunity.”

Saxo Bank analyst Jacob Pouncey is of the opinion that legacy markets uncertainties are giving an edge to the rebirth of Bitcoin demand and other crypto assets that are in no correlation with mainstream financial markets, adding, “If there is a significant pullback in the equity markets, there will be an inflow of money into uncorrelated assets, or assets that lie outside the reach of the traditional financial system in which cryptocurrencies are a potential alternative. The inflow of institutional capital to the cryptocurrency market, due to the increase in regulation and investor protection, could lead cryptocurrencies to a positive quarter.”

Managing director and global head of equity products and alternative investments at CME Group, Tim McCourt confirms that trading volume is steadily increasing each month!

Could this be it, the moment all of Bitcoin enthusiasts were hoping for (and in likelihood praying for)? Do you believe this will once again put the cryptocurrency and Bitcoin wheels in turbo motion? Have your say in the comments below…
