Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

You know how there's medical student syndrome, where the student studies up on each disease and keeps thinking he's caught up? I have something slightly different, but somehow related to this power of suggestion over yourself. As I work on the blog writing job, which is rather encyclopedic and covers a great many species, I keep remembering things like, Wow, a pair of canaries wasn't any trouble at all, and they kept the house filled with song, and Remember that sweetheart of a Goffin's Cockatoo that hopped on Roger in the pet store and tried to sweet-talk him into bringing him home?

I'm not going to get any new birds right now. Five may be a low for me, but it's plenty with all the travel I do. Anyway, it's a bad time to bring pet birds into the parish, with the recent announcement of widespread West Nile among the mosquitoes. Still, I can't help thinking, Gosh, that homing pigeon that used to stop at our house was soooooo sweet.

The seed feeder was a great idea. I have all kinds of birds coming and going, without any need to provide them with society, toys, housing, and so on. I just put the food and the varmint barrier out there, and they do the rest.
