The dealer started with two $5,000 chips, one of them purple and the other black. The black was for a four-card draw and you win that round when one of the cards is an ace. We can both then refill our hands to four cards, which means we each have an ace in our hand as well. On a showdown, it would be my turn first and if I had a black card face up on the table then I would beat him into submission because he has no out. There are still more cards to draw, but we would then have to declare a winner and pay the amount of chips in his stack. He would probably fold before we got to that point if he had an ace, because he has no out and I have four aces with which to attack him. I have the better hand and I win.
We can go to other hands and play with the same basic rules. If you have aces, you can beat one of his hands into submission and pay him off with an ace in your hand. If he has four aces, then you beat him in every way possible and he is out of the game because he doesn’t have any outs against your winning combination of four aces. That’s what made me think it would be good game to play.
I explained the basic rules to the dealer and he didn’t really want to play it. He got out of there as fast as he could and I went over our rules with a few people, then I walked around the room, looking for two or three more dealers who might want to play.
“One guy was real good at these hand games. He told me he had been dealing cards for years and he could beat anybody with aces. He was a cautious dealer, not one of those who risk everything and bluff and bluff until they get all in and then fold if they find themselves with four aces. The guy said he had read about such games in the newspapers but he didn’t believe such things existed.”
#HOW TO REVIEW AN OUTDOOR CAMERA IN 3 MINUTES!
After all, if you can’t remember what you did during a game, then it can’t be used against you later. Even though there is a camera in the background, it cannot record your information unless you make yourself known. If you see someone walking through the gaming area and don’t think anything of it, then do not walk away from that camera. If you are walking forward and see something in the background that looks suspicious, then turn around and talk to the person behind the counter. There are usually a few people there to talk to and verify the operator’s credentials.
There is a camera in the background that you can use if you want to get caught. It’s easy, too. You just have to make sure that the person who is stalking you does not know it. That way, you will never be able to find that person again. It’ll be like they were never at that gaming area at all… because they weren’t.
(Weird! Why the hell would that person install a camera to watch the back of a store? It doesn’t make sense. They have cameras inside of it, why not just use one of those? Hmmm…)
Learning how to be an independent travel blogger and DIY writer
If you are someone who wants to learn how to be an independent travel blogger and/or a DIY writer, then I have some good news for you. I have published two books that can help you do just that: #1: How to Travel the World on $500 a Month #2: How to Save Money Every Time You Fly. Both books are available on Amazon and the two top Kindle stores.
Both books are a result of my own personal experiences, and although it may seem like a lot of work to create these books, I really think that you will find these books to be very helpful in your own journey to travel the world on $500 a month or less.
So if you are interested, please go ahead and check out both books. I would appreciate it.
Thank you and talk to you soon
(the second book is currently being revised. i’m working on revisions for it)

How To Take Better Pictures For Your Bloggers
If you want to make your travel blog stand out from all the other blogs out there, then you need to start taking better pictures. I have written a post on making great travel photos on a budget and this video shows you just how easy it is to take better pictures for your blog. If your blog makes it easy for people to see your pictures, then they will want to read what you have to say.
A good travel photographer will have an amazing camera. An amazing camera can be a point and shoot type or something more expensive like a DSLR or an SLR. All these types of cameras will make your travel photos stand out and make you a better blogger as well.
There are 3 things that you need to have in order to take great pictures:
1. A great camera: You cant take great pictures with a poor camera. You can have the best camera in the world, but if you cant take decent pictures with it, then you will never make any friends because people will hate to see your photos.
Just like in life, you need to have a good camera. If you dont have a great camera, then it is useless to take any pictures of anything. You also need to look at the way that your camera is set up. How many megapixels is it and can you change the way that the pictures are taken? You can make them black and white, sepia or grey depending on what you like.
Once you have this figured out, then you will be able to move onto the next 2 things that make a great travel picture.
Where to start with your blog outline? Begin by thinking about what is important to you. What is something that makes you sad or happy and why? Think about something or someone that you are grateful for and why. What is the most important part of your life and why do you think it’s the most important? Maybe it’s raising your children, keeping money in the bank, or getting through the day without encountering too much of a hassle. What makes you laugh or cry? You don’t have to write about all of these things, but they are important enough to be considered.
After listing these things, you can begin organizing them into categories. It’s very important to keep your thoughts organized and have a structure to follow when writing. You’ll be able to go back through and organize later on, so don’t worry too much about consistency. I personally start with the most important thing I want to talk about in a category, then write down a couple of examples for each of the other categories. This way it feels like I’m actually doing something useful instead of getting caught up in the details. Finally, you can write a title for each category and organize them in order of most to least important.
Yours might be: I am grateful for my children, for my friends, for the people in my church, for my job (because it keeps me from starving), or something else entirely. You could also make this more personal by adding special things about yourself. For example: “I am thankful that I have a loving and supportive family who allows me to focus on blogging. I am grateful that I have a loving and supportive husband who makes sure we have enough money to eat and pay the bills. I am thankful that I found a new job that is challenging, empowering and allows me to work from home. Thank you for making my life fulfilling and easy.”
