My Anniversary Present

13 posts in this topic

Hey Guys,

Thought everybody would like to see my one year anniversary present. It was 365 days ago today that my beloved Pale Hose completed their utter domination on the rest of the Major Leagues, completing the 2005 season. I am sure that the rest of you will want to respond and send me some "warm wishes" on my anniversary. Let `em rip, boys! Windy

Windy,

My pleasure with the warm wishes about the anniversary. It is much better than congratulating you on another victory.

By the way, you don't really plan on wearing that mood ring gone bad thing do you? I just spent 4 days in Vegas and didn't see anything that gaudy there. grin.gif

OK

Time to "fess up". It's not really mine. It was the Big Hurt's. He left it here when he left in a huff after the parade. Sorry the avatar got a little distorted, I'm not too hip on editing. Pier had to "baby step" me through the process along with Buzz, just to get the darn thing up there. So, how did you do in Vegas? I love Vegas, where did you stay, what did you play, give us all the juicy details.

I was at the Riviera. Not my favorite place but that was where the conference was. We played at mostly the Frontier, MGM and Hooters. We got our rear ends handed to us most places playing blackjack and 3 card poker but had a little luck at the hold 'em tables. I had won a bundle last time down there so I knew the city was looking for some payback on this trip. I think we may try the Wynn next time down. Took a little tour there and looks like a awfully nice place.

Fishy,

I have not heard a lot of good things about Wynn. They started out like a house on fire, getting $500-800 a night but I heard that they dropped that pretty quick and good deals were to be had there. Have not heard good things about the casino either. Not sure, just what I heard. If you are looking to drop some coin on a hotel room I have and would recommend The Bellagio or The Venetian. My wife wants to stay at the Mirage on our next trip so we shall see. Love those Hold Em tables...my favorite game, hands down. Windy

I just so happen to of moved to Vegas recently. The Wynn is actually one of the better places here. Caesars Palace is also VERY nice but VERY expensive. The Belagio is very over-rated. ITs a nice place but too expensive for what they offer. The Venitian is also a very nice place that is also very expensive. Some of the hottest hold'em tables are at Caesars and belive it or not the Flamingo. Lots of players and almost always a great time. But staying at any of these places will always run u an arm and a leg. If you have the cash I would personally recommend Caesars. Just for their hospitality and the amount of stuff that u can actually do there without leaving the place(4 nightclubs, The Forum Shops, Many resturants, and live shows just about every single night) They have Elton John right now there plus Celine Dion plays there. Prince has started a show at the Rio that runs every Tues, Wed, and every other Thursday. I dont like him personally but i know alot of people do. Plus Penn & Teller is a great show that i recommend going to see if your here(which is also at the Rio).

Hey Born,

I saw Elton when I was there last Feb. Stayed at the Bellagio and I would agree with the rating, or over rating. Luckily I was not footing the bill, my company put us up there for 5 days and gave us a $1000 gambling money to boot. We saw Elton, Howie Mandel at the MGM Grand and The Rat Pack show at the Greek Isles. Rat Pack show was good, Howie was very funny and Elton was terrific. What really amazed me was the acoustics at the theater at Ceasars for Elton and Celine Dion. My last trip was in August for my wife's birthday. I took her to see Barry Manilow at the Hilton and we stayed at the Aladdin, now Planet Hollywood and it was almost as nice as Bellagio at a quarter the price per night. I have relatives that live in Vegas and some that live just outside of Laughlin. I have never heard great things about Wynn and I never got a chance to head over there myself to check it out. I heard that they really don't have a central theme for the place and nothing that really jumps out at you. I will try to make it a point to stop in there next trip. Maybe I will run into you at the Texas Hold Em tables. I will be the huge guy with a beard and pocket rockets in my hand and a smile on my face. Windy

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
