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.

The price of fame! Apparently, I am a face of flyertalk, or at least, a comic relief of flyertalk. My interview has been published on Frugal Travel Guy. Here is the intro:

Peachfront is a New Orleans writer who has published a number of books and uncounted magazine articles on pet care and other topics over the years under the name Elaine Radford. In the 1990′s during the expansion phase of the casino industry Elaine got involved with advantage play to profit from casino promotions. She later graduated to playing on a blackjack team :) . She’s been retired and traveling for a few years, but has re-opened her writing business; although now more focused on producing eBooks and blog content instead of dead trees. People can feel free to PM or tweet her if they need a writer. She’s also interested in hearing from anyone who has Peachfronted Conures over age 20...

I guess I should screenshot my moment of fame so I can cut and paste it into my diary at some point after my pearls of wisdom have been utterly forgotten.

Speaking of fame, DH got a royalty check today, at which point I realized that one of his fans had tipped him enough to earn a book...almost two weeks ago. Eek! Why does Yahoo send Paypal emails to the spam bucket? GMail can figure it out...

Northern Cardinal family drama update: The last baby is eating on his own, and today Daddy was chipping and looking around, at a loss about what to do with all of his free time. Pretty hilarious.
