Vacation is just about
over and school is on the
horizon.
I’m heading into 8th
grade this year so I’m
king of the class. My little
brother “Ribby” is coming
to my school so I will have
to show him the ropes.
Missy and Roxy have
had a great summer.
Many trips to the lake,
and hanging out with us
at home this summer.
They will probably look
forward to us going back
to school so they can just
sleep all day. That’s all
for now.

CASA GRANDE HIGH - 333 CASA GRANDE ROAD, PETALUMA
ALL PROCEEDS SUPPORT CASA GRANDE
& PETALUMA HIGH SCHOOL MUSIC PROGRAMS
ARIES: Mar. 21-Apr. 20: Success
is guaranteed when you allow for
suggestions and feedback from those
closest to you. With your chart’s
ruler dancing with Venus now, the
heart can lead the way to some real
breakthroughs that involve your
creative projects. Enjoy the fruits of
cooperation.
Lucky Days: 15-19
Lucky Numbers: 33-60
TAURUS: Apr. 21-May 21: Do
you feel the pressure lifting? That’s
Saturn preparing to slip out of your
opposing sign. The forecast: Full
speed ahead, later in the month, on the
financial goals you set for yourself in
March. Keep this aphorism in mind:
Contentment is when your earning
power equals your yearning power.
Lucky Days: 7-22
Lucky Numbers: 33-50
GEMINI: May 22-June 21: Your
mind goes into hyper drive when your
ruler slips into Libra mid-month. Use
the first weeks to compile a list of key
people you wish to forge alliances
with and then, on the New Moon of
the 13th set your plans in motion.
Call, email, visit – but don’t miss this
opportunity to up your luck via your
social connections.
Lucky Days: 9-17
Lucky Numbers: 19-54
CANCER: June 22-July 22: This
is an excellent month to take a short
journey to free your mind from
troubles or pressures. Crabs need to
work against their tendency to hang
out at home too much. Exploring the
unfamiliar, even if it’s just a nearby
city, will do much to revitalize your
soul and prepare you for the energetic
autumn that’s just around the corner.
Lucky Days: 3-27
Lucky Numbers: 11-65
LEO: July 23-Aug. 23: Christmas
in September? You can count on it
with the New Moon acting like a
money magnet come mid-September.
The catch? Clear up past debts or
verbal obligations you’ve neglected;
remember people never forget a
promise. End of the month finds
you planning a series of parties
on the home front, lavish your
guests with your solar brilliance.
Lucky Days: 14-28
Lucky Numbers: 20-45
VIRGO: Aug. 24-Sept. 23: The
New Moon in your sign mid-month
prompts you to dump the fuddy-duddy
and set your sights on beautifying
LIBRA: Sept. 24-Oct. 23: Secrets,
we all have them, but do they empower
us or weigh us down? The New Moon
on the 13th offers you the opportunity
to solve the riddle that author Frank
Warren offers: “There are two kinds
of secrets. The ones we keep from
others and the ones we keep from
ourselves.” Don’t let what you hide
from yourself complicate your life.
Break free.
Lucky Days: 4-15
Lucky Numbers: 4-49
SCORPIO: Oct. 24-Nov. 22: With
Venus in your house of revelation
and publicity, you’re ready to shed
your shyness and declare to others
what you love and value most in life.
People need a strong dose of positivity
right now, and you’ve got the perfect
insights and methods to help others
fulfill their wishes too.
Lucky Days: 7-27
Lucky Numbers 2-54
SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 23-Dec. 21:
Here comes Saturn for a long ride
through your house of self-expression
and personal power? Translated:
Although your usual exuberance and
optimism might feel disciplined or
limited, that’s just the cosmos telling
you it’s time to mature and perfect
your personal visons. Don’t fight the
teacher!
Lucky Days: 19-24
Lucky Numbers: 18-59
CAPRICORN: Dec. 22-Jan. 20:
You’ve been craving momentum and
traction for your bigger schemes and
plans and September is the month that
delivers. You’ll feel as though you’ve
just filled your car with rocket fuel. A
secret for you from the free-spirited
Henry Thoreau: “Chop your own
wood and it warms you twice.”
Lucky Days: 19-25
Lucky Numbers: 8-55

Understanding the
caller
A couple of months ago I went to a
Bingo parlor in one of the newer
hotels on the outskirts of Las Vegas.
Friends had insisted that I go there. It
was interesting, because I had one of
the best and one of the worst Bingo
experiences of my life there. I am not
bringing this up to cast shame on the
hall, but to show how playing in the
same place can lead to very different
degrees of fun.
First, I need to point out that this hall
was beautiful. It had some incredible
electronic equipment. I felt a little
sorry for the caller. The Bingo balls
were in an elaborate set-up where
they came up through the chute
automatically, were automatically
turned around to the camera and
displayed. Without the caller doing
anything, the number was then put on
the tote board.
The caller DID call the numbers. At
least the caller was doing something.
This begs the question: Can Bingo
become too automated? Are you
playing at a hall where it’s lost the
“human touch?” Except for the fact
that I was uneasy with the role the
“caller” was playing, I had a great
time and found everyone so friendly
I wanted to go back.
I did go back. This time I did NOT
go home smiling. The problem was
that the caller on the second day
MUMBLED. Callers who cannot
be understood have been a problem
since the beginning of Bingo, but
why at THIS place? Everything else
there was nearly perfect. The hall was
totally NON-smoking. The employees
were wonderful. I was saddened by
the bad experience I had the second
time. Actually, I wished I had not
gone back so my only memories of
the place would be good ones.
The hall had something else going for
it. It was paper-ONLY. I know Bingo
management benefits when they use
the electronic machines, since people
would buy 3,000 cards if they could.
There is a limit to how many paper
cards you can keep track of.
I was amazed that the manager of the
hall didn’t realize what a mush-mouth
her caller was. The problem was made
worse by the fact that I don’t think a
single player complained. I didn’t say
anything because jobs are scarce and
I didn’t want to get the young person
fired. But, I violated a rule I have
presented here for years: Complain if
something is wrong.
I guess I have a soft spot in my heart
for the hard-working callers and
runners. I just wish I could have
understood that person better. Darn.
I welcome your comments to
[email protected] Tell me
about your bad Bingo experiences.
Next time around, an interesting idea.

Vacation travel can be a challenge for
people with limited mobility who rely
on walkers, wheelchairs, mobility
scooters and other support devices to
get around. Choosing travel routes,
hotels, restaurants and attractions
for even the briefest of getaways
can require considerable research to
establish that mobility needs will be
met.
“Traveling with a disability can be
challenging and stressful,” writes
Barbara and Jim Twardowski,
contributing writers for Cruise Critic
(www.cruisecritic.com). “When you
choose a cruise for your vacation,
though, you can take some of the
unwanted surprises out of the equation.
Once onboard, you know your cabin
can be reached via elevator and you
can dine in your choice of accessible
restaurants each night. You also have
plenty of entertainment options that
can accommodate your needs. Plus,
like any other traveler, you can benefit
from unpacking suitcases once and
sleeping in the same bed each night
while visiting multiple destinations.
These conveniences makes cruising a
popular way to vacation for travelers
with disabilities and other health
concerns.”
This is what makes a vacation like
the World Championship Bingo
Tournament & Gaming Cruise the
perfect choice for travelers who enjoy
adventure and fun without those
frustrating mobility roadblocks. The
host ship for the 27th Annual Bingo
Tournament Cruise, Carnival Breeze,
is dedicated to offering the finest
cruising experience to its guests with
special requirements. Carnival ships
have quality service and a variety
of accessible features to make every
voyage a relaxing and enjoyable
experience.
Carnival has made substantial
modifications to enhance travelers’
ability to move about their ships,
such as accessible elevators at each
elevator bank with controls within
reach of guests who use wheelchairs
and scooters; accessible routes
throughout most areas of the ship and
signs posted to assist in locating these
pathways; accessible seating within
the ship’s restaurants and lounges;
accessible public restrooms; and, of
course, accessible staterooms.
This year, Nancy Jackson will be
enjoying her fifth Bingo Bugle
Tournament Cruise. The 74-year-old
retiree from Wyandotte, Michigan,
relies on a mobility scooter to get
around, and knows firsthand how well
Carnival cruise ships meet her needs.
“There’s practically no place on the
ship I can’t get to,” Nancy says. “I see
the stage shows, go to the lounges,
get to the main dining room, spend
time at the casino—which I do a lot,
and can get to the main room for the
Bingo Tournament.
“It is really satisfying to be on a
cruise vacation because the ship has
everything you need—really, it has
more than you need,” Nancy says.
“There’s no extra vacation planning
involved. Once you get on the ship,
you’re set. And on top of that, the
Bingo Tournament is run really well
by a great bunch of people. I wear my
tournament T-shirts to Bingo all the
time and recommend it to everybody.”
If you long to experience deluxe
Caribbean cruise travel and exciting
tournament Bingo, but concerns about
limited mobility have held you back,
delay no longer. Phone the Bingo
Bugle Cruise Hotline at 888-3522464 and speak with a travel expert
about your mobility limitations. Odds
are you’ll find that as a participant
in the World Championship Bingo
Tournament & Gaming Cruise, you’ll
feel no limitations at all!
The 27th Annual World Championship
Bingo Tournament & Gaming Cruise

Video Poker
n Be wary when playing
by Henry Tamburin
Lately, it seems that some casinos are
changing their policy toward video
poker players, and this often is not
good news for them. I’ll give you a
few examples so you will be aware of
these revised casino policies.
A Mississippi casino recently
posted
the
following
banner
on their web site: “9/6 VIDEO
POKER MACHINES…36 NOW
AVAILABLE.” I got excited and paid
the casino a visit to see for myself.
Sure enough, I found 36 slant-top
video poker machines that had 9/6
Jacks or Better games on them.
However, as I glanced over the entire
pay table, I noticed something that
made me sick to my stomach; namely,
they had shorted the max-coin royal
flush payout from 4,000 coins to only
2,500 coins at all denominations (25
cents, 50 cents, and dollar).
This reduction in the payoff for the
royal flush decreases the Expected
Value from 99.54% to 98.39%. Now,
you might think a reduction in ER
of 1.15% is not a big deal, but for
serious players, trust me, it is. I had
a short meeting with the casino’s slot
manager to voice my displeasure
over their shorted royal flush payout.
Casino management revisited this
issue and subsequently changed the
payout to 4,000 coins on their quarter
denomination 9/6 Jacks or Better
machines (at 50 cents and dollar
denomination, the payout is still 2,500
coins). The point is this: you need to
be diligent and check the entire video
poker pay table to be sure none of the
payouts have been shorted.
Many casinos have changed how they
determine a player’s monthly mailer
(specifically, the amount of bounce
back cash, free play, and other comps
in the mailers). The amount of perks
that players got in their monthly
mailers used to be based on either

High School here I
come. I wish I could
take the dogs with me
on the first day but I
think that might be a
bit weird.
Well they can send
me off to school with
their coin in over a period of time or
their daily average coin in. Nowadays,
casinos are basing a player’s mailer
on theoretical (or “theo”), meaning
how much average profit the casino
expects to earn from a player based
on the specific machine they play. So
video poker players that play, say 9/6
Jacks or Better, will get much less
bounce back free play and comps in
their mailers compared to a player
who plays a video poker game with a
worse pay schedule.
The following policy change blows
my mind. Some casinos factor in
a player’s win/loss history in their
equation that determines how much
a player will get in their mailers. Get
lucky and hit a royal flush (or a jackpot
on a slot machine) and the amount
of bounce back and comps in your
mailers will dramatically decrease.
Some casinos decrease the rewards
a player receives for playing a full
pay video poker machine. Instead of
having to wager, say 1,000 coins, to
get a point on their slot card, signage
on the machine will state that you
need to wager 4,000 coins for a point
(thus it takes more coin in to get a
point). Several casinos have even
gone so far as to post signage on their
full pay video poker machines that
state when you play this machine you
will get zero points and you won’t be
eligible for any promotions. (No, I’m
not kidding…absolutely no incentives
for a player.)
Many casinos actively promote bonus
point promotions to video poker and
slot players. Unfortunately, when
some video poker players took the
casino up on their offer while playing
full-play video poker games, their
mailers were discontinued.
So what should a smart video poker
do if their favorite casino changes
their policy toward video poker
players for the worse? You have two
choices: voice your displeasure with
management, making sure they know
you will be playing there a lot less, or
find another casino that will offer you
a better deal for your play.

Seat ownership
■ Unfair and needs to be
stopped
Dear Aunt Bingo,
Why is it that some players insist upon
sitting in the same spot every time and
don’t mind making a public scene if they
find someone else is sitting in “their”
special seat? With a public game like
Bingo, it seems the rule of the house
should be that whoever arrives first gets
to sit wherever he/she wants to, and all
those who follow take whatever seats
remain. This notion of “reserved” seats
is unfair and the idea of seat ownership
needs to be stopped. Bingo is supposed to
be fun. Battles over seats make the games
stressful for everyone. —Staci, via email
Dear Staci,
It’s pretty safe to assume that the majority
of folks who insist on sitting in the same
chair each and every time are doing so
because they think it will bring them
luck.
I have no problem with this—except
when a player feels it is his or her right
to badger another player sitting in “their”
seat. If it is that important to them, they
should make a point of arriving at the hall
early and securing that magic seat. If they
fail to do so, they can then politely ask
if that player would mind moving. If the
person declines, that should be the end of
it. If the requestor then gets aggressive, I
would hope the person seated would call
a worker or the manager and report the
harassment.
At certain halls there are places I prefer
to sit and play, not out of superstition,
but because I may like how the sound
system sounds there or because there is
a good view of the monitor or caller. But
if I arrive and there is someone already
there, I simply move on. I would never be
so bold as to ask them to pack up their
stuff and move elsewhere. To me that’s a
little crazy. —Aunt Bingo
Dear Aunt Bingo,
I’m new to the Bingo scene and am
curious about what you think the best way
is for me to choose what Bingo center to
play in. I used the Internet, but it didn’t
have much information. I thought about
calling each hall to learn more about
them, but being new to the game, I am
not sure what to ask or how helpful that
would be. What do you suggest for my
research? —C.C., Illinois, via email
Dear CC,
In my opinion, there is only one sure way
to determine which Bingo hall best suits
you. And it will require some legwork.
The environment is a huge part of a
player’s enjoyment of Bingo—lighting,
chairs and tables, air quality, location,
and so on. You can’t get a feel for this
over the phone. You really need to go to
each hall, play a couple of Bingo sessions,
and see what you think.
Equally important are your fellow players.
Are they quiet and serious? Chatty and
social? Are there 50 people playing? 150?
500? Only by mixing in with different
groups of players will you find the one
that you find the most fun to be around.
Next there are the numbers of games/
sessions, entrance fees, and payouts. How
much do you want to spend? How much
do you want to win? How many games
are you up for? These are important
considerations. Luckily, the Bingo Bugle
has most of this information in the ads
the halls run in each issue.
Finally, there is word of mouth. Hopefully
you know a few people who are Bingo
regulars. They are a great source for
learning about the various games in town
and the pluses and minuses of playing at
each venue.
Good luck with your search! —Aunt

This type of dream tells me you are in a
delicate emotional situation where if you
express your opinions at all, it is likely
to cause serious family or relationship
troubles that will drown you in misery. In
situations like this, it is best to keep your
opinions to yourself and let the drama
play itself out. Your dream is a warning
so please listen to it. —Dream Lady

Dear Stacy,
Sadly, your dream does not have a good
interpretation. Since you are taking
photos of yourself, it tells me you are selfabsorbed and everything is about you.
Ironically, the idea that you are taking
photos of yourself (times three) tells me
you don’t trust yourself to make good
decisions Are you involved in a change of
job, home or a relationship? Your dream
says you are. If so, you might consider
counseling to learn how to trust yourself
more, but if you don’t care that you are
narcissistic (some people are fine with
that), then accept the dream and move on
as best you can. —Dream Lady
Dear Dream Lady,
I live in the south where we have
extremely heavy rainstorms, but lately
I have been having dreams where I am
stuck in a downpour that soaks me to the
skin in seconds and I simply cannot get
dry. What is so weird is that I dream I am
being rained on in my house, at the stores
or when I visit my friends or parents.
What is going on?

intermission so you can get a snack. I
did so and had some cherries off our
neighbor’s tree, which our thoughtful
neighbor had picked for us. Delicious.
The next game was my favorite of the
whole session, it was a double Bingo with
a wild number—that number to be the
first ball out. In this case it was a 3 and
I was pleased as I could see many 3’s on
my cards. In four numbers I was on and
was really excited. I won. I yelled with
excitement and wondered how I would
get paid. The answer came up quickly on
my screen. I could elect to have payment
by check or take a credit against my next
session. Of course I took the credit. I
am hooked. I love Bingo.Emotional
situation
■ Stuck in a downpour
Ordinarily I would not praise any Bingo
activity that kept you out of the Bingo
Hall where there is fun, excitement and
many people to relate to. However, this
site I ran across was so much fun I just
have to share. There is a small charge to
sign on and a regular charge for cards, but
the fun begins there. You can buy many
cards or just one for that matter. You can
rent a machine that will keep track of all
your cards be it four or forty.
The play is fast, but not too fast—at least
I was able to keep up easily. I had paid
for sixteen cards and rented a machine to
keep track of them. I have no idea why
I came up with that number—maybe I
thought it was lucky. I paid for all this on
my credit card—which always makes me
feel like I am getting it free. That, I think,
is the biggest danger of credit cards.
The first game was a chair, facing either
way and I was on once, but no win. When
you win, there is a series of computer
commands you have to punch in, but it is
pretty easy. You have to be on your toes
to get your win before the next game is
called.
The second game was a little box
anywhere. That one is pretty hard to keep
track of and I was glad to have a machine
doing the work. Again I was on, but
didn’t win.
The third game was a hard way. I was on
many times, especially if I could have
used the free space, that I was sure I
would win but no—again, close but no
kewpie.
It is a little strange to be sitting alone in
your living room or office and have no
noise of the Bingo hall around you and
still be playing desperately to win. I
wanted to ask my neighbor how he was
doing or somehow make human contact,
but there was no one to ask.
Kate was away for the week and I was
at home alone, hence my time on the
computer.
The next game was Simple Simon—
which is a regular Bingo anywhere and
one outside line, top, bottom or either
side. That one went really fast and I didn’t
even get on before someone won. Again,
no noise from the winner—which made it
all a little spooky.
This site even makes time for a brief
