Putting the win back in Winnamucca

Spending the weekend in the wonderful ( sarcastic ) Winnamucca,NV had a job to do out here ( 180 miles from Reno ) and it was a good excuse to get out of town. This time of the year in Reno we have Hot August Nights,and the tourist traffic is just the worst. We have done this from time to time before and it was mostly a good time.

The Model T hotel was a good place to stay and the slots were not to bad, you an walk the whole town in 30 mins so it was a good place to start. Then some large chain bought them and it went down hill from there. This time we are staying at the Winners Casino ( 2nd time I think ) Its been here for what seems 100 + years.

The last few times we have come to Winnamucca the gaming and slots have not been so nice, not that I want to go home rich it would just be nice to win enough to keep playing. So far Winners Casino slots have not been so good,it Friday and the weekend is just getting started so lets keep a open mind.

Friday night cam and went and besides drinking to much it was a bust as for gambling, from the Model T to the Winners inn they took us. It was so bad that we decided to come home on Saturday instead of Sunday.

Maybe next time Winnamucca……

Mother’s Day at The Peppermill

Its always nice to have a stay-cation once in a while, even better when the rooms are free. Well not exactly free if you count in the cost of playing the slots, but that can vary also. Not much into playing the slots today but the wife will be more then willing to play for me.

Peppermill Reno

It’s a nice hotel and we know a lot of the bartenders so it makes it fun to hangout. I have to work from here for the next 3 days so I get to people watch and hear all the stories about drunks on the gaming floor.

Monday: I had to go to work while the wife had her spa day. My day didn’t go so well dropped a printer on my right ankle and a battery backup unit on my left ankle.

Her day

Well all in all she had a good weekend and was very relaxed when she left. I think it was nice to get home to my own bed.

In a rut “internet wise”

So the other day I added folders in my bookmarks bar of my browser to add some new space and it got me thinking about how I do things on the internet. The way it was set up my hand would go to the same spaces every day and I was thinking these sites are not all the internet is. I was so surprised just moving things around skewed up my hands and where it moves the mouse.

This got me to thinking I have been using the web links for email for years when I have Outlook the program in the computer ( side note I miss outlook express ) removing the links to the 3 email accounts would make some space in the bookmarks bar. So all of this is making me think about how I’m doing things on the computer, maybe it’s a geek thing but just making these changes might be a good thing for everyone to try.

I set up Outlook and downloaded Thunderbird for email accounts and forgot how involved it is to set the programs up the way you want to, Years ago it was just second nature, it was a nice workout for the brain.
