Of Bond, hobbits and poker
If you haven't seen Skyfall proceed directly to the theater. Even if you don't like James Bond movies I think you'd enjoy this one. I'm a big Bond nut so as you can guess I thoroughly enjoyed Skyfall. I'm looking forward to The Hobbit, which I'll probably go see over Christmas break. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was a delight, I think in part for the New Zealand landscape as much as anything else. I'd love to one day visit New Zealand or Australia, but that's no cheap plane ticket. I think playing online slots, or pokies, based there is as probably as close I could ever get. Learn more here. And why do you figure they call them pokies, anyway? I haven't played poker in two months -- I mean ANY. Sometimes it's nice to take that break. My new full-time job (check out Missouri Watchdog here) has kept me plenty busy, and our nationwide network just met at the Ritz-Carlton in Amelia Island, Florida, for a conference and a little R&R. It's not a bad gig, believe me, and I get the entire week off between Christmas and New Year's. onlineroulette.org. I believe that Bond played some roulette in Skyfall, which might be a first for 007 in the series. I'd love to make a return trip to Las Vegas for a brief time this summer, but we'll just have to wait and see on that one. Family vacations come first. John Harper, who turns 3 on Dec. 8, had a blast at Disney World last month and I can't wait to figure out another cool place to take him -- Las Vegas is not one!
