peanut sauce. His dinner was delicious. He
served some jasmine rice with the meal.
We substituted some of the veggie stock
for water to the rice to add flavor.
I would suggest warming up the leftover veggies from Brad’s Vegetable Stock
and serving them with rice or noodles to
the vegetable lovers in your family. Add
beef, chicken or tofu, if desired. —Annie
BRAD’S VEGETABLE STOCK
Homemade Stock
Dear Annie,
I make a lot of recipes using a storebought vegetable stock. I would like to
make my own sometime. Please help me
decide what vegetables to put in my stock.
Carrie Sue from Raleigh, North Carolina
Dear Carrie Sue,
Just last week my son blanched some
veggies for a tofu dinner he was preparing
for us for the next day. I used the vegetable
stock for a butternut squash soup I was
preparing. His dinner was delicious and so
was my soup. I have recreated the recipe
for you. He served all the blanched vegetables with a firm tofu (cut into cubes),
leftover roasted chicken pieces and added
2 to 3 tablespoons of a store-bought Thai
1 eggplant, peeled and chopped into 1” pieces
1 cup baby carrots
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup celery stalks, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 parsnip, peeled and sliced
1 cup zucchini squash, peeled and sliced
2-3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 small fennel bulb, cut into small pieces
1 bay leaf
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in a
stockpot large enough to hold them with
at least 6 inches of room at the top of the
pot. Add cold water to cover by one inch.
Bring to a full simmer over a medium heat
and simmer uncovered, for 2 hours. Strain
through a fine mesh sieve, pressing on the
vegetables with the back of a large spoon
to force out as much of the liquid as possible.
Your comments and questions about cooking and
entertaining will be addressed in this monthly column. Write to “Ask Annie” c/o Annie Ennis, 8312 SE

We always celebrated our father’s
birthday in August and we decided to do
so again this year by remembering all we
could of him. Born in Derby, England, he
was a true Brit even though he was a dedicated and patriotic American. By calling
him a true Brit, I mean he had the personality and character of one. A bit pompous,
but very jovial.
Father was a great reader as I am also.
We shared many books and magazines. I
like to think he was also a great thinker,
but his drinking got in the way of his
thinking.
He was a store manager. First he managed a lumber yard and store and then was
recruited to manage a grocery and automotive place. It started as a grocery store
and as the need arose, became a seller of
tires and other small automotive parts. He
was really good at his job and the drinking
did not interfere with his work.
He enjoyed American politics and was
active and verbal with his friends like the
owner of the newspaper. They loved to exchange insults.
Kate and I wondered how father would
have liked Bingo. “I’ll bet he would have
loved it,” I said. “And he would have
played well and won often.”
“You are such a softie,” said Kate who
had been hurt more than once by father’s
drinking.
“Let’s have a Bingo day, dedicated to
father,” I suggested. “Let’s go, play Bingo
and put any winnings in Clinton’s campaign fund.” Father was a staunch Democrat and voted the party line.
Kate agreed and off we went to see
what we could win in father’s name.
At first the play went slowly. No one
even near us won. Then on a double
Bingo, I won and was happy to mentally
set the money aside in honor of father.
At intermission we spoke with our
tablemates, telling them we were having a
“remembering father” day and setting our
winning aside to help the Democrats. Kate
gave me a nudge, but fortunately, these
folk were also Democrats so no harm
done.
After break, Kate got hot. She was on
twice and won once on a large picture
frame. “I will happily donate this in father’s honor,” she said, settling in for Bonanza.
She won again! I could scarcely believe
it and the amount we would contribute to
Clinton’s campaign was getting to be sizeable.
“I wonder if we need to specify this as
Bingo winnings,” I said. “Maybe she
would consider it gambling and refuse it.”
“Don’t be an idiot,” said Kate. “She
wouldn’t refuse a dollar stolen from a
homeless person.”
“Kate, don’t be so nasty,” I insisted, but
then we had to get ready for the final
blackout of the evening and in just that
many minutes, I was on. I was so excited.
I kept chanting for my number until my
tablemate asked me to stop or to chant
silently. But then I won! It was a $600 win
and I was happy to set it aside to contribute in father’s name.
“Well,” said Kate. “You had quite an
evening and you will make a substantial
contribution to the Democrats.”
“I am going to give it in father’s name,”
I said staunchly. “He deserves to be honored.”
...John Lennon appeared on the first
cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
…Mary Todd Lincoln’s half-sister, Emily
Todd, was married to Confederate Gen. Benjamin Helm. When her husband died in 1863,
Emily crossed Union lines to visit her sister in
the White House. Newspapers in the North created a furor over the incident, speculating that
the general’s widow could be a spy. After taking an oath of loyalty to the Union, Emily Helm
was granted amnesty.
…The original Mickey and Minnie Mouse were
voiced by Wayne Allwine and Russi Taylor.
The human pair also were married in real life.
…According to historians, Roman emperor
Caligula once declared war on Neptune, the
god of the sea. After his soldiers ran into the
ocean and stabbed at the water, Caligula declared victory and ordered the men to collect
seashells as war trophies.
…Those who study such things say that of all
teenagers who wear braces, at least 60 percent have matched the rubber bands on their
brackets to their outfits.

Dear Dream Lady,
I do not have a problem with weight,
but lately I have been dreaming of weighing myself regularly on my bathroom
scale. I also cannot get out of my bathroom, even though it appears to be unlocked. There is something keeping me
from opening the door—it feels like someone is holding the door shut on the other
side! It is a spooky dream and I am shaken
when I wake up.
Judy W., Sun City, Arizona
Dreams of weight
■ Difficult situations
Dear Dream Lady,
I have grown up reading your column
and always look forward to them. Recently
I have been dreaming of overly large lions
chasing me through a large castle. They are
roaring so loudly I wake up sweating and
exhausted. There are people, such as knights
and royalty helping me escape, but the
dreams are still very scary. I am not sure
what is going on. Can you help?
Angela P., Long Beach, California
Dear Angela,
Thank you for your letter. I was probably your age when I started writing for the
Bingo Bugle! I am sorry you are having
such frightening dreams. Lions symbolize
dignity, energy and aggression. The castle
and unknown people symbolize you. You
keep yourself a bit aloof and do not look
for help from friends or family. It sounds
like you are struggling with jealousy or
anger. Keep a journal of what upsets you
and see if the dreams happen when you
have an upsetting day. Analyze what sets
Dear Judy,
Scales in your dream tell me you are
undecided about a difficult situation and
you are weighing the pros and cons of it.
The closed bathroom door tells me you are
trying to decide what to do, but you are
torn between the right decision and the
easy (morally incorrect?) decision. Study
what is perturbing you and choose the
moral decision. Your spooky dreams will
end. —Dream Lady
Dear Dream Lady,
What do I do about dreaming of avoiding obstacles every night? I am new at reading your column. Thank you for doing this.
Yolanda M., Las Vegas, Nevada
Dear Yolanda,
Welcome to Dear Dream Lady! As you
read my columns you will see that “obstacle dreams” are very common. They symbolize obstacles in real life. As you solve
difficult situations, those dreams will fade
from your nightlife. —Dream Lady
Send your dreams to Dream Lady at P.O. Box 414,
Entiat, WA 98822. Not all dreams can be published,
but I will answer them personally if you enclose an
SASE (Stamped, Self-Addressed Envelope).

To help promote hand hygiene, the
healthcare experts at the AANA recommend
that everyone follow these simple tips on
proper hand-washing from the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
How to wash: Wet hands with clean running water and apply soap. For 20 seconds,
rub hands together to make a lather and
scrub all surfaces. To ensure that this is
being done for 20 seconds, try humming the
“Happy Birthday” song from beginning to
end two times. Afterward, rinse hands well
under running water before drying them
with a paper towel or an air dryer. If possible, use a paper towel to turn off the faucet.
When to wash: Hands should be washed
before and after preparing food, eating, touching people, treating wounds or giving medicine, and treating a sick or injured person. It
is equally important to wash hands after activities such as using the toilet, changing a diaper, touching an animal, blowing your nose,
coughing, sneezing or handling trash.
In healthcare facilities, adhering to
proper hand-washing techniques is essential
in reducing the risk of exposing pratients to
the possibility of infections that are transmitted through touch and consequently
could lead to dire consequences. Historically, the AANA has taken a strong stance
in advocating for patient safety and preventing unsafe health care practices. The association works closely with the CDC to
aggressively address vital issues such as infection control and safe injection practices.

Sometimes, Bingo just
isn’t fun anymore
I know that may sound like a rash statement, but after sixteen years, I am about
ready to start yelling and screaming. The
more I play Bingo in major halls—and
there ARE a few exceptions—I find that
our favorite game is becoming more and
more humdrum. And, this “boredom factor” is being demonstrated not only among
the caller, but among players, too.
You may remember the reason I first
started writing this column was because I
had seen a woman who won $30,000 on a
progressive Dual Dab who wasn’t thrilled
at all. I happened to be looking at her
when she won. Instead of screaming,
BINGO, she raised her hand about
halfway up and, in a quiet voice, mumbled, “Bingo.”
I wondered at the time how anyone
could be so lackadaisical about Bingo that
they actually seemed uninterested when
they won such a large jackpot. I called the
nice folks at the Bingo Bugle, asking if I
could write a letter to the editor about
what I had seen. Instead, I was told that
the publication could use a columnist with
my background in journalism and my in-
terest in Bingo. So, Bob on Bingo was
born.
Now, once again I want to tell the employees of Bingo halls who are reading
this that I have always been on your side.
I know you have a rather boring job, day
after day, night after night, game after
game. I know the calling can become monotonous and the running and paying off
can seem unrewarding. But, bear with me
on this. Something has got to be done to
make it easier for you and more fun for
us…the players.
There are some wonderful exceptions
in all of this, though. At the Cannery, on
the north side of Las Vegas, one of the
callers, Steve, is apparently a real delight.
Joey in Las Vegas wrote to report: “Bob,
you won’t believe Steve at the Cannery.
He actually seems to enjoy being a Bingo
caller. Because of his upbeat attitude, his
love of the game rubs off on all of us.
When I go there and he is not working, it’s
not the same. To make matters worse, one
of the callers at another hall told me that
she was instructed by the manager to
speak in a monotone voice, showing no
emotion.” Thanks, Joey. In other words, at
THAT doesn’t want ANYONE to have
fun.
I don’t know what the answer is. When
Bingo callers are being told to sound boring, for my money, the end is near. What
do you think? My e-mail address is:

More from the mailbag.

Q: The last time I saw the gorgeous
and talented Katherine LaNasa was in the
NBC nighttime drama Deception. Can
you tell me when/where I can see her
again? —Jennifer G., via email
A: The lovely lady LaNasa currently is
co-starring in the new USA drama Satisfaction, which also stars Matt Passmore
and Stephanie Szostak. Katherine plays
Adriana, the hard-edged, high-end madam
who lures unhappy husband and father
Neil Truman (Matt Passmore) into becoming one of her male escorts.
Q: I loved John McGinley on Scrubs.
Does he have any projects in the works?
—Nick V., via email
A: IFC announced that John has been
cast as the lead in the network’s original
comedy-horror series Stan Against Evil,
which is set to debut this fall. So far, what
we know about the series is that it follows
Stanley Miller (played by John), a sour,
aging bulldog of a small-town New
Hampshire police sheriff, who was recently fired due to an angry outburst at his
wife’s funeral. When the new, strongwilled sheriff, Evie Barret (Janet Varney),
opens his eyes to the plague of angry
demons haunting their town, Stan begrudgingly joins an alliance with her to
fight them off.
Q: Are they really making an updated
MacGyver TV series? —Paul T., Atlanta
A: Lucas Till, who just finished filming
the role of Havok in X-Men: Apocalypse,
will star as the resourceful secret agent in
the CBS pilot of the MacGyver reboot.
He’ll play our 20-something hero who’s
recruited into a secret organization to help
save lives using his special set of skills.

Out of Africa
There are few vegetables with a more storied past and debatable reputation than okra.
This slender green pod comes from the
lovely yellow flower of the seemingly impervious Hibiscus Esculentus plant. While this
hardy crop would flourish almost anywhere,
okra is grown mainly in the South. Those
who’ve eaten okra love it, and when separated from it, for reasons of geography or
season, miss it.
Known to some as ladies’ fingers, bhindi,
bamia or mostly commonly as gumbo, which
is its West African name, the okra plant is believed to have arrived in North American
with the African slave trade. It’s possible that
slaver traders or the captives themselves
stowed away seeds to bring to the New
World.
Okra was cherished by both slaves and
slave owners. Southern agricultural journals,
dating back to the mid-1800s, account that it
was widely enjoyed and eaten frequently
during the growing season in a variety of
preparations.
The Cajun and Creole cuisines of
Louisiana resulted from a New World fusion
of foods from the diverse cultures of its early
settlers. It was in Louisiana that okra gumbo,
the famous dish named after its key ingredient, was born.
Okra was a predominant ingredient in the
regional stew of vegetables and chicken,
shrimp or crawfish. The gelatinous liquid in
okra helps to thicken gumbos and soups.
Slaves also used the seeds as a coffee substitute and the leaves for medicinal purposes.
Relatively easy to grow, okra tolerates
high temperature and scant water, and also is
nutritious. Okra is an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins B-6 and C, as well as
folic acid, potassium and calcium. Okra also
contains properties to help with diet-related
illnesses like diabetes. The gelatinous interior
found in okra helps to slow the absorption of
sugar into the blood by forming a kind of gel
coating inside the bowels. This slows down
the absorption of food from the gut, evening
out the peaks in blood glucose that occur
after meals.
Even with all its health benefits and historical acclaim, okra has been controversial
from its arrival in North America. There are
those refuse to eat it or who think it’s a suspicious-looking pod of slimy repute. This is
because of the gelatinous substance okra releases when cut.
Proper selection and cooking methods
will eliminate that truly minor detail and
showcase its delicious flavor. When choosing
okra, it’s important to look for small, tender
pods, as thick, long pods tend to be tough.
Okra should never be sliced until immediately before cooking. This help to prevent
some of its gelatinous interior from seeping
out.
Once you’ve tried this delicacy properly
cooked, okra will steal your affections, as it
has for so many others who salivate at the
mere mention of its name. My recipe for
Okra and Shrimp Hush Puppies showcases
the best qualities of okra in a historical Southern recipe that is packed with Creole flavors.

1. Stir together the cornmeal mix and
flour in large bowl until combined. Sprinkle
shrimp, onion, bell pepper, celery and okra
with 1 teaspoon of the Creole seasoning and
combine to coat with the spices. Add the
shrimp and vegetable mixture to the cornmeal mixture.
2. In a small bowl, stir together the egg,
broth, water and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon
Creole seasoning. Pour the egg mixture into
the cornmeal mixture using just enough to
moisten the cornmeal. Let stand 5 to 7 minutes.
3. Pour oil into a Dutch oven to a depth
of 4 inches; heat to 350 F. Drop batter by
level tablespoonfuls into hot oil, and fry in
batches for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes, flipping hush
puppies over and frying for another 2 minutes on the other side until golden brown.
4. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels; sprinkle with salt and serve immediately.

Lean, Sweet and
Healthy
For a late afternoon snack, fruit is always best.
However, sometimes, a sweet treat can
change the mood or make a down afternoon seem more up.
Although sugary snacks are surefire
ways to crash moods and healthy eating
intentions, the following two recipes from
the book TurboCharged Recipes: Delicious Fuel for Your Lean Fat-Burning Machine, by sibling co-authors Dian Griesel,
Ph.D. and Tom Griesel, offer healthful
snacks to satisfy the urge for something
sweet.

1
oz unsweetened shredded coconut
oz almond flour (any nut flour can be used)
tbls macadamia nut oil
tbl sugar substitute
Combine all ingrdients in a stainless
steel bowl until well mixed. For each
cookie, spoon a tablespoonful of the mixture onto a cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated 325-degree oven for about 6
minutes or until the cookies just start to
get browned. Remove from heat and allow
to cool on a wire rack.
Listen to the Music
“My vinyl record collection probably
tells the story of my life better than I
could tell it in words.”
—Anonymous
It’s true that once a teacher always a
teacher. Every August my thoughts return
to the many years I spent as an elementary
teacher and in my nightly dreams I teach
again. Invariably my class is unruly, ignoring my directions, and in general acting
like monkeys in a classroom zoo. No matter what I do, I can’t get the students to behave; and often when I wake up and then
return to sleep, I return to the same dream.
I enjoyed my years with fifth graders, but
I have no desire to once again be in charge
of them. At the end of each academic year
when we were done with curriculum, we
played Bingo for small prizes. I taught
them basic Bingo patterns and they loved
the game. One of their favorites was Last
Person Standing. Everyone stood up and
as I called numbers, each student had to sit
down if the number called was on his
Bingo card. The last person still up was
the winner. I remember playing a similar
game at one of the Bingo games I attended
years ago. In that version though, you won
if you did not have any of the first sixteen
numbers called. You could hear multiple
moans and groans as players were eliminated on the fifteenth and sixteenth balls.
If no one had a clean Bingo card after ball
16 then the prize money was not awarded
and the game continued to a cover all.
This month is the last full month of
summer. On August 12, 1877, the phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison.
I’m told that in his honor, August 13 is
Vinyl Record Day. In the late 60s I bought
what was called in those days a stereo. It
played all sizes of vinyl records with clarity. Then along came tapes and CDs, followed by Walkmans, Bluetooth, and
music streaming. I don’t have a clue what
the last two are just as most young people
have no idea what a joy it is to listen to
vinyl records. I’m told there’s been a
resurgence of interest in vinyls and I hope
that’s true. For years albums and singles
could be found at yard sales and they were
used in all manner of craft projects instead
of their intended purpose. I’m glad I held
onto my collection although it languished
in our basement for many years along with
my beautiful stereo console. Recently my
husband brought both the collection and
the stereo upstairs. After some cleaning
and an oiling of various parts, the turntable
is once again working great. What a joy it
is to turn the TV off and listen to the sweet
strains of music from days gone by.
Until next month, may Lady Luck blow
you kisses as you dance out the door with
dollars. Win big. My email is [email protected] And don’t forget
that the first Sunday of August is Friendship Day. Take a friend to Bingo; or make
a new friend at Bingo. After all, our
friends and family are among God’s greatest blessings.

The Department of Veterans Affairs is
putting up $8 million for grants to
providers of adaptive sports opportunities
for disabled veterans and members of the
armed forces.
A lot goes into providing events and
opportunities: training, supplies, coaches,
equipment, recreation therapists, program
development and more, right in the veteran’s community. For more advanced
athletes, there are the Paralympic and
adaptive sport programs on regional and
national levels. The grant money will be
very welcome and might even result in additional programs being created across the
country. (In addition, when training for the
Paralympics, there’s a monthly training allowance.)

Recent retirement
■ Readers respond
Dear Readers: In a previous column,
I published a letter from a reader who
wrote in about her recent retirement and
how being able to play more Bingo was
one of her retirement goals. She ran into
some difficulty, however, when her retiree
husband began to complain that she was
playing Bingo too much.
I suggested that part of his complaint
might stem from her going out and leaving
him home to fend for himself. I also suggested that if she helped her husband find
his own interests, he might stop complaining about her Bingo playing.
The topic resulted in a litany of letters
from other readers, such as those that follow. —Aunt Bingo
Dear Aunt Bingo,
I just read the letter in your column
from the recently retired woman whose
husband is giving her a hard time about
going to Bingo.
I think your answer hit the nail on the
head. This sounds to me like a man who
has yet to find his own retirement activities and expects his wife to sit home and
make sure he is entertained. I would say
that the only part I disagree with is that it
is this woman’s responsibility to help her
husband find his own retirement things-todo so that she can enjoy Bingo in peace.
He is not a child. He didn’t do anything
to help her prepare for retirement. Why
must the burden now fall to her to coddle
and baby him through a retirement he did
not prepare for?

My husband Terry and I are also retired
now for about six years. Long before retirement we began talking about what we
would do once we did retire. Travel and
spending time with our kids and grandkids
were at the top of the list. But there were
other things—like me wanting to join a
cards club or learning to kayak with some
friends on the lake—which I wanted to do
alone. I also intended to play more Bingo.
At first Terry had no ideas, and I said
that he better come up with some because
I didn’t think we needed to be together all
the time. He agreed (grudgingly) and after
retiring got involved with a local gardening co-op and with a croquet club at a golf
course up the road. He also got a part-time
job doing deliveries—which he loves.
It is too bad your reader is in her situation. Now she really may have no choice
but to follow your advice and spend the
beginning of her retirement helping him
figure out how to handle his. What a drag.
—LC, Maine, via email
Dear Aunt Bingo,
I am very happy that you published the
letter from the woman who recently retired and is now being pestered by her husband who has not adjusted to retirement
yet.
My husband and I found ourselves in a
similar situation when we retired. We’d
worked with a consultant on our financial
planning for retirement, but it never occurred to either of us that we should talk
with a “social” consultant as well.
Both of us found ourselves “stuck” at
first with too many hours in the day and
not enough activities to occupy our time
constructively. Eventually our friends introduced us to senior groups, and we
found other thing to do online and through
the newspaper. But it must have taken a
good two years for us to find our retirement rhythm simply because we weren’t
prepared.
I strongly advise everyone who is nearing retirement to do some planning about
how they will spend all that free time.
Going out to dinner or playing Bingo can
only do so much. You really need to have
some bigger plans for the future. —Marge

Bugle Cruise News
■ Sisters bonding aboard the Bingo Bugle Cruise
By Jeffrey Charboneau
Special to the Bingo Bugle
Back in 2002, Patricia Beams of New
Carlisle, Ohio, and her husband were in
Nevada for a white water rafting trip, and
while there spent some time on the Las
Vegas strip. “In one of the casinos, I came
across a copy of the Bingo Bugle, which
had an ad for the Bingo Tournament
Cruise,” Patricia says. “It sounded like a
wonderful trip. So when I got home, I convinced my sister to go and try out the
cruise with me. This year will be our 11th
Bingo cruise.”
Patricia and her sister, Alice Hitepole,
call their annual World Championship
Bingo Tournament & Gaming Cruise their
“bonding time.” “We’ve taken care of
everyone throughout the years and the
cruise has become our way to get away
and just have fun as sisters,” Patricia says.
The two take full advantage of everything the Bingo Bugle Tournament Cruise
has to offer, including gaming in the ship’s
casino, enjoying the stage shows, challenging themselves in trivia contests, and
trying out a 3-D movie theater with seats
that move and vibrate in sync with the onscreen action and audio. “The 3-D movie
was a real experience,” Patricia says. “I
kept jumping and laughing every time the
seats moved, and by the end the whole audience was laughing with me.”

The sisters are also big fans of the land
excursions available to passengers.
“We’ve had lots of adventures—traveling
by train through St. Kitts, exploring a tropical reef with underwater helmets in St.
Maarten’s, and on a stop at St. Thomas we
set off on our own and found a man who
trained parrots to do all kinds of tricks.”
Patricia and Alice have been quite
lucky playing in the Bingo Tournament
and ship’s casino, having returned home
winners on every cruise except one. On
their winningest cruise, Patricia says their
combined total was $7,400; on the second
highest they walked away with $4,900.
“Obviously we are big fans, which is
why we go again and again,” Patricia says.
“The staff are so friendly; you can ask for
anything and they will do anything for
you. We never stop laughing from beginning to end because the organizers and
players are all so enjoyable.”
The World Championship Bingo Tournament & Gaming Cruise is one of the top
vacation experiences available anywhere.
Come see for yourself what brings back
players like Patricia and Alice time and
time again. For more information visit us

■ A unique project opens before the
end of the year
Purchases and Expansions
Boyd Gaming has purchased Aliante
Casino and Hotel for $380 million. Station
Casinos spent $662 million to build
Aliante, which opened in 2008.
Boyd has also purchased the Cannery
and Eastside Cannery for $230 million.
The Cannery opened in 2003 at a cost of
$100 million and ECan opened in 2008 for
$250 million. Adding the Cannerys and
Aliante brings the number of Boyd casinos
in southern Nevada to 12.
Work begins this month on a $154 million expansion of the Aria’s convention
area, which will blend the Cirque du Soleil
theater into the existing convention space.
MRI has also completed a $1.08 billion
sale of the Crystals to Invesco Real Estate
and Simon Property Group.
Palms Sold
The Palms has been sold to Station Casinos. Other than the general announcement,
which included the sale price of $312.5 million, very little additional information has
been released. The deal is expected to close
later this year and it’s likely that the name
will be unchanged given the strong brand
recognition of the Palms.

unique project is being billed as the “first
casino resort to deliver an authentic Asian
lifestyle experience” in Las Vegas. Lucky
Dragons’ distinctive features will include
signs in Chinese first and English second,
multilingual staff members, and a high-end
tea garden.
Conversions and Closures
The casino portion of the off-Strip
Westin is closing. Known as Max Casino
as a nod to the property’s former incarnation as the Maxim, the machines and tables
will be removed to make room for a new
restaurant. It’s expected that the William
Hill race and sports book there will also
close.
The former Barcelona Casino in North
Las Vegas has been converted to Siegel
Slots and Suites.

Extreme Bingo
■ Keep up with the help of
electronics
Hi Guy,
Do you have an opinion on the correct
number of 9-ons a person should play? I
never buy more than two and really prefer
to play only one, but I see lots of players
play four and six sheets per session, which
seems extreme to me. How do they keep
up? I would be so afraid I was missing
numbers. At the same time, these people
who play extra packs must have a better
chance of winning. —Jay, via email
Hi Jay,
There is really no “correct number” of
packs to play. It’s all a matter of how many
you can handle comfortably.
I remember my early days of Bingo
playing when I felt I needed to play extra
packs to stay competitive, and ended up
totally stressed out trying to keep up with
the caller. One time two ladies sitting near
me offered to help mark my cards, which
told me I must have looked so frantic that
complete strangers felt they needed to step
in and rescue me. Funny now. Totally embarrassing then.
To this day, like you, I am astonished
watching players who can cover half a
table with Bingo paper and have no problem keeping up with the caller. It’s all
about the magic of hand-eye coordination:
some folks are superstars at it, others are
not.
Luckily, technology has caught up with
we slow pokes. If you want to play more
cards than you can physically manage, go
to a Bingo hall with handheld Bingo devices. You can buy dozens of cards (if
your wallet can handle it) and the machine
does the tracking for you.
If you find you miss the thump-thumpthump of dauber on paper, buy one or two
paper packs to play manually and make
the rest electronic. That way you have the
Hi Guy,
I am really ticked off! My wife and I
went to Bingo tonight and after we got
there and stood in line for 30 minutes
waiting to buy our paper, the chairman
came out and announced that Bingo was
cancelled. We objected and demanded to
know why and he said that the turnout was
too low and they couldn’t have the games.
Everyone complained but he said this didn’t change anything and the games were
still cancelled.
It was too late for us to get to another
game so we went to a diner for pie and
coffee and after that just went home—still
angry. What a waste of a night. —PO’ed
in Michigan
Hi PO’ed,
What a rotten turn of events.
While it is rare to have Bingo cancelled
right in front of you, it does happen—particularly during the summer months when
nice weather and travel vacations draw
people away or, more commonly, during
winter when nasty storms rip through.
To be fair to the Bingo sponsor, the cost
of operating a Bingo doesn’t grow on
trees: it comes from the dollars spent by
players when they buy-in to the games. If
a head count shows that there aren’t
enough players to cover a full session’s
prizes plus operating costs, the person in
charge has no choice but to slash prizes
significantly or cancel the games. Cancellation is usually the simplest option.
Try not to hold this against the hall or
boycott the games. Remember, the whole
reason why the Bingo exists in the first
place is to fund charitable work. During
the iffy summer season, it might be wise
to check the Bingo’s website or call ahead
and ask if they are looking at a possible
cancellation.
The bottom line is that last minute cancellations are extremely rare. If you experience one, try and chalk it up to a bad
break—and enjoy that big slab of diner
pie. —Guy

SUMMER SPLASH SUV WINNER!
Aracely Maela of Murrieta had a
hard time believing her good luck on
Sunday, July 10 during a recent visit to
Pechanga Resort & Casino. She had
several entry tickets deposited into the
casino’s “Summer Splash” drawing for
cash and a brand new Acura MDX
SUV. However, she never thought her
name would be the one called over the
loudspeaker. After the initial cash
drawings were over, it came time for
casino officials to announce the name
of the guest who would win the shiny
new, cream-colored Acura MDX.
“When I heard my name, I thought
it was a prank,” said Maela. “They told
me it was real, I thought I was going to
flip out!” The technical specialist from
the Temecula Valley area was all
smiles as she posed for photos in front
of her brand new, $44,000 ride.
Winners are made every day at
Pechanga Resort & Casino. If you are
not yet a member of the Pechanga

everyone 21 years and older. Simply
enrolling gives members valuable discounts on dining and other Pechanga

Dear Searching,
With more than 21 million Americans
living with some form of uncorrectable vision impairment today, more and more
products for low-vision are being developed that can help with many different
needs. Here is a quick guide to some great
products and where to find them.
Low-Tech Aids: There are literally
hundreds of simple, relatively inexpensive
products on the market today that can help
people with low-vision. For example, to
help with daily living tasks, you can find
a wide array of “talking,” “large print” or
“jumbo-sized” items such as clocks,
watches, remote controls, telephones,
computer keyboards, calculators, thermostats, kitchen aids and much more, as well
as a wide variety of magnifiers. You can
find these products at sites like independentliving.com
or
800-537-2118;
shoplowvision.com, 800-826-4200; maxiaids.com, 800-522-6294; and lssproducts.com, 800-468-4789.
In addition to the simple products,
there is also a number of high-tech, lowvision devices that offer incredible capabilities. Unfortunately, many of these
items are expensive and they aren’t covered by private insurance or Medicare.
Here are some to check out.
Desktop magnifiers: Also known as
closed circuit TVs, these are home-based
machines that provide powerful magnification, contrast and clarity for reading,
writing and looking at pictures. While this
type of technology has been around for a
while, more styles and variations are available today. Some of the best places to find
these are at: optelec.com, 800-826-4200;
freedomscientific.com, 800-444-4443; enhancedvision.com, 888-811-3161; and humanware.com, 800-722-3393.
Portable magnifiers: For reading
small print in and outside the home (food
labels, prescriptions, bills, menus, etc.),
portable, battery-powered video magnifiers provide the same features as closed
Every Sunday, there are big payouts in Beth Shalom of Whittier. They
play 15 regular games that pay $250
with a min. attendance of 150 players.
5 early bird games pay $250 and there
are great playing odds!
Admission is only $20 for 1st pack,
$5 for additional packs, a 5 game early
bird pack is $5. They also feature a
Power Ball jackpot where you can win
up to $1,199 and intermission drawings.

of Whittier this Sunday night, games
start at 6pm and they are located on
Hawes St. between Colima and Mills.

circuit TVs, but they’re small enough to
fit in your pocket. Some good ones to
check out are the “RUBY” at freedomscientific.com, the “Compact Mini” from
optelec.com, the “Pebble” at enhancedvision.com and the “Feather” at
clarityusa.com.
Text-to-speech: For converting text to
speech, there are several devices that let
you take a snap shot of printed material
(magazines, newspapers, books, mail,
etc.), and in seconds it reads it aloud. The
ClearReader+ from optelec.com is one of
the best for home or office use. If you
want mobility, the Intel Reader (careinnovations.com) is a handheld text-to-speech
device that retails for $899. And for
iPhone 4 users, the new ZoomReader app
developed by Ai Squared (aisquared.com,
800-859-0270) provides text-to-speech capabilities.
Computer magnification: To customize a Microsoft Windows personal
computer for low-vision, the computer’s
operating system offers built-in setting adjustments
that
can
help.
See
microsoft.com/enable for instructions. If
that’s not sufficient, Ai Squared sells a
fantastic software application called
ZoomText Magnifier/Reader that enlarges,
enhances and reads aloud everything on
the computer screen.
Or, if your wife uses an iMac or iPad,
Apple provides some outstanding built-in
accessibility features (see apple.com/accessibility), including screen and cursor
magnification, high-contrast settings and
screen reader capabilities.
Low-vision cell phone: The Samsung
Haven from Verizon Wireless is a basic
flip-phone that provides voice command
(you tell it what to do) and voice output (it
speaks to you) technology that lets you
easily operate it without vision. See verizonwireless.com or call 800-256-4646.
Talking GPS: To find her way around
town, the Trekker Breeze is a small handheld GPS navigator that announces the
names of streets, intersections and landmarks as she’s walking or riding in a vehicle. Available at humanware.com.
Currency reader: To avoid being
shortchanged at the store, the iBill (small
enough to attach to a key ring) identifies
all U.S. bills by voice or a series of tone
or vibrations. Visit orbitresearch.com or
888-606-7248.
Savvy Tip: To learn more about lowvision products and to try many of them
out, visit a vision rehabilitation agency in
your area. See afb.org or call 800-2325463 to locate one.

show and author of The Savvy Senior book.

blackjack. I mean, that’s the way it has
been in casinos for over fifty years. Bet
$10 and get a blackjack, and if the dealer
doesn’t have a blackjack, bingo, you are
immediately paid $15. (That’s a 3-2 payoff
or one and a half times your bet).
Casino owners (way back when) initiated the bonus payoff for a blackjack to
encourage players to try the game. The
bonus payoff also helped to offset the big
edge that the casino had over players when
the rules of the game specify that a player
must act on their hand before the dealer,
and if they bust (i.e., hand exceeds 21),
they will automatically lose even if the
dealer subsequently busts. (So-called
“double bust” rule.)
Nowadays, things have changed in
casinos and that includes the 3-2 payoff
for a blackjack. It’s quite common nowadays for casinos to pay only 7-6 or 6-5 or
heaven forbid, only even money for a
blackjack.
Even if you never got a passing grade
in grammar school math, you ought to be
able to grasp the following logic as why 65 is not better than 3-2. A 3-2 payoff is the
same as a 15-10 payoff. (I just multiplied
the 3 and the 2 by 5.) Therefore, a 6-5 payoff is the same as a 12-10 payoff (this time
I multiplied by 2). Now we have an apple
to apples comparison between the two payoff odds. Do you agree that a 15-10 payoff
is greater than a 12-10 payoff? Just suppose you bet $10 in a 6-5 game and got a
blackjack. How much would you be paid?
A 12-10 payoff (in the 6-5 game) would
get you $12 (bet $10 and are paid $12,
which is what 12-10 means). Get the same
blackjack in a 3-2 game, and you’ll be paid
$15 (that’s $3 more you’ll get in the 6-5
game). Now do you see that 6-5 is not a
better payoff than 3-2? In fact, it’s a much
lousier payoff.
So what’s the big deal over a measly $3
difference in blackjack payoffs between a
3-2 vs. 6-5 game? It so happens that statistically you can expect to get four blackjacks per hour when you play. Suppose you
play a three-hour session at a 6-5 blackjack
game. That means you can expect to get 12
blackjacks. If you are short-changed three
bucks for every blackjack, you will have
donated a total of $36 to the casino coffers
over the course of three hours. (If you are
a $25 bettor, you’ll be giving them, gulp
$180.) Trust me, blackjack is a tough game
to beat even using the best strategies so
don’t make it harder on yourself by playing
6-5 games.
You can go through the same simple
math (as I did above) to compare a 7-5
payoff to a 3-2 payoff, but I’ll spare you
the trouble. Bottom line: For a $10 bettor,
it will cost you an extra buck on every
blackjack compared to a 3-2 payoff. That
may not seem like much, but if you add up
all the blackjacks you’ll get in your lifetime—that would amount to a lot of moola
that you’ve given the casinos for no reason. Sorry, but a 7-5 payoff, although
slightly better than 6-5, is still not good if
you are serious about winning.
Now comes the biggie in blackjack payoffs. The trend in Vegas (and elsewhere)
these days is to have “part pits” where halfnaked girls on poles do “their thing” while
you play blackjack. To pay for the “eye
candy,” the casinos have brazenly decreased the blackjack payoffs…are you
ready for this…to even money. Guys, listen up. If you think that this entertainment
is ‘free” while you play, think again. For a
$10 bettor, that even money payoff on
every blackjack hand costs you big time…
to the tune of about $60 per hour for a $10
bettor.
Before you just plop yourself down on
any blackjack table, make sure you look at
the layout (or the placard that sits on the
table) to be sure that the game you are
about to play pays 3-2 for a blackjack. If it
doesn’t, say, “Adios Amigo” to the dealer
and go find another game (or casino)
where they offer a much fairer 3-2 blackjack payoff.

LUCKY CARD FOR AUGUST 2016

Horoscopes for
August 2016
ARIES: Mar. 21-Apr. 20: Don’t be alarmed by your
desire to slow down and take your time with projects
and plans. August is about taming your wilder impulses so you can move, slowly, towards a goal that
you’ve been nurturing throughout the year. Seek
guidance or counsel from experts in the field that
you’re curious about. They’ll be happy to share their
wisdom with you.
Lucky Days: 16-29
Lucky Numbers: 11-58
TAURUS: Apr. 21-May 21: You’re not one to welcome change and yet August is bound to entangle
you with some major adjustments in the relationship
department. It’s time to determine who is supportive
and who is a drain, mentally or financially. Don’t be
afraid to let loose with the old, and keep in mind the
old saying: “When one door closes another opens.”
Make that your clarion call this month.
Lucky Days: 7-16
Lucky Numbers: 21-51
GEMINI: May 22-June 21: The full moon on the 18th
highlights your house of communication and higher
wisdom. You might discover that simplest of projects or hobbies is waiting to be transformed into a
lifetime study or professional pursuit. Allow your
always-buzzing curiosity to lead you forward-it will
make all the right connections to support your new
aim.
Lucky Days: 3-17
Lucky Numbers: 39-48
CANCER: June 22-July 22: If you’ve been on a new
health or exercise regimen this is the month to up
the ante and see what new results you can reach, especially if you feel like you’ve reached a plateau. Or
if you’ve considered making some dramatic changes
to health habits now is the time (with the full moon
on the 18th) to begin. Do this now and you’ll find
that you have the wind behind you, making your
commitment much easier.
Lucky Days: 16-24
Lucky Numbers: 24-34
LEO: July 23-Aug. 23: Here’s a key from the writer
Joan Halifax that can help you sort out whatever desires are active in the romance department: “One
seeks solitude to know relatedness.” Allow yourself
to toggle between ‘me time’ and the social instinct
that pulls you into the world of others. The better
you understand yourself the easier it will be to find
your complimentary mate.
Lucky Days: 8-19
Lucky Numbers: 25-60
VIRGO: Aug. 24-Sept. 23: It’s taking a lot of effort
on your part to separate fantasy from reality, and that

SCORPIO: Oct. 24-Nov. 22: The full moon on the
18th wobbles the balance between your home life
and your career. Some of you may decide to move
the workplace into your domestic environment. Or
you might take what you have been doing at home
as a hobby and turn it into a full time profession.
Fortunately your tenacious spirit can give you the
energy to follow through on whichever direction you
go.
Lucky Days: 23-27
Lucky Numbers 7-65
SAGITTARIUS: Nov. 23-Dec. 21: Time to bring
some discipline to your wide-eyed and future-scanning nature. It’s always great to see all of life’s possibilities but take to heart this old Russian proverb:
“If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either
one.” Make a list of what you want and then, line by
line, cross out what is least important, leaving you
with a clear direction towards what it is you really
desire.
Lucky Days: 19-23
Lucky Numbers: 39-43
CAPRICORN: Dec. 22-Jan. 20: The only way out
of your tight financial situation is to plan out the rest
of this year so you live within a budget that is realistic. Once you do this you’ll feel like a two-ton
boulder has been taken off of your shoulders. Goats
always function best when they feel the future is secure. But this means you must lay out a plan for
yourself and stick to it.
Lucky Days: 13-23
Lucky Numbers: 18-55
AQUARIUS: Jan. 21-Feb. 19: Your co-ruler Neptune is moving backwards. It’s re-appraisal time,
when the dreamer reflects on the dream. An important question to ask yourself is whether what you’re
doing now is spiritually sustainable. Going through
the motions alone just won’t cut it. It’s time to explore more imaginative possibilities.
Lucky Days: 4-29
Lucky Numbers: 10-58
PISCES: Feb. 20-Mar. 20: Your co-ruler Neptune is

...Stories from the Real World & Cyberspace
■ This month: Hard-hitting hits to hard-hitting daubs
By Jeffrey Charboneau
Special to the Bingo Bugle
Johnny Rotten Loves His Bingo
Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten is
getting too old for unabashedly brazen
hobbies. The legendary rocker turned 60
this year and, now that he’s entered his
Golden Years, says playing Bingo appeals
more to him than causing anarchy in the
U.K. “I do like a round of Bingo,” he told
the British newspaper The Mirror. “I like
it when they shout ‘Bingo!’ I’d rather have
a round of Bingo than anything else.”
Johnny Rotten, real name John Lyndon,
also admits that as he grows older his musical tastes are also mellowing. Despite
being famous for having released hard-hitting hits with his band the Sex Pistols in
the 1970s, he is now more into rocking out
to a surprising form of music that seems
to be the antithesis to punk—disco. “I love
the Bee Gees and bullocks to those that
don’t,” he declared.
Bingo Teaches Preschoolers
about Nature
Flowers, bees, leaves and moths were
just a few of the treasures discovered by
preschoolers at Sternberg Museum of Natural History’s nature trail Bingo event at
Fort Hays State University in Hays,
Kansas. Armed with a magnifying glass
and a Bingo card, preschoolers and their
families toured the nature trails and located items on their cards. When one was
found, the children were given stickers of
their choosing to mark the corresponding
image on the card. A larger sticker was
awarded when a child achieved a Bingo.
Sternberg hosts activities for preschoolers
throughout the summer months. The museum has events for children of all ages,
including science camps for middle and
high schoolers.
PA Raises Bingo Prize Limits
With Pennsylvania allowing small
games of chance, and slot machines and
table games at casinos, Bingo gaming in
the state has declined. To help revive
Bingo, state lawmakers are considering revisions to the 1981 Bingo law—which,
except for minor revisions in 1982 and
1988, has remained unchanged. The
House Gaming Oversight Committee approved a bill to increase limits for prize
payouts from $250 to $500 for any one
game of Bingo, from $2,000 to $4,000 for
jackpot games, and from $4,000 to $8,000
for the total amount of prizes awarded in
one day. The measure would also remove
restrictions on the number of days a licensee can conduct Bingo games. “Not
long ago, Bingo halls were packed with
enthusiastic players, but the game has
faced declining popularity amid the rise of
casino gaming in Pennsylvania,” said Rep.
Kate Klunk, R-169, Hanover, the bill
sponsor. “Local organizations that rely on
Bingo for fundraising are struggling to
bring in the funds they once did, and the
state law pertaining to the game is not
helping its revival.”
$1 Million Bingo Payouts Legal
in Alabama
Anniston, Alabama, made it legal earlier this year to play $1 million payout
Bingo games—the highest amount in the
state. But don’t expect the city to become
a haven for Bingo parlors anytime soon,
city officials said. Anniston city officials
said Bingo games could earn big bucks for
the city and the nonprofits that would run
them. But while the Bingo law provides
for big-time payouts, it also contains restrictions designed to keep games small
like they’ve always been in the area.
Meanwhile, some Anniston nonprofits are
wary of attempting Bingo because of the
added cost, manpower and expertise
needed to run large games effectively. The
Anniston City Council updated its Bingo
in May, taking advantage of a state law
passed in March that increases possible
paper Bingo payouts in Calhoun County
to $1 million a week from the previous
$120,000 maximum. The state law came
at the request of the Piedmont, Alabama,
mayor and City Council who want to help
bring back the Frontier Palace, a 4,500seat Bingo parlor that once operated there.
