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.

Running around running errands since it's a free day with no workers scheduled. I listed some eBays yesterday afternoon, and this morning I discovered that my internet service was down, so I'm at the library making a quick check on things. Maybe it will be fixed when I get home. Or maybe not.

Diaryland finally fixed my archives on my cookbook site. Woo hoo on having an actual index to my recipes.


The DSL is working again, and they are supposed to start work on the living room floor tomorrow at 8. It will apparently take another week or so to order the carpet for my office. Sigh. The beige carpets are in stock but I am not going through all this upheaval to end up with the same government low bid beige carpet that I had to begin with.

A friend was naughty and played high stakes baccarrat without any advantage. Nonetheless, he won a large sum of money and after paying various bills and taxes, he wants to go to Africa and have some other idler friend accompany him.
