To get implants or not

So, this past week has been spent deciding whether or not I needed a tooth implant. I had a bad habit in high school of eating lots of Mike and Ikes. Lots. Tons. By the truckfull. Well, I paid for it right before my mission with several root canals and crowns. Flash forward 15+ years later and one of my crows got loose. My wonderful dentist Danny took it off and began cleaning what remained of my tooth.



To make a long story short, it was up to me to decide if I replaced the crown with another crown. But, without much tooth left for the crown to hang on to, it would probably not be a permanent solution. The other plan? Extract the remains of the tooth and drop a post into my jaw and put in an implant. I chickened out and got another crown. I realize that this new crown may only last a few years, but I was not ready to get implants. Yet.



On a sidenote--kind of sad day though as the old crown was pure beautiful gold. The new crown will not be. Inside my mouth resides 3 fabulous gold teeth (it used to be 4 before this one fell out). True bling in my mouth. So, now down to only 3. If anyone wants to see my old gold crown, feel free to stop by the house and take a look. It is on display. After a few months, I plan on taking it to the local pawn shop or 'Mail us your Gold' and reap the rewards of a gold tooth.

sam- grace told me you showed her your gold tooth.

i thought she was kidding.
apparently not.

i am voting her "sole representative" for our family. :O)

i DO hope you score big though when you take it into "cash for gold"!

Dude, you should've gotten the implant. They are all the rage. If you count me having one as "all the rage." Which I'm pretty sure you don't.

Check out Bad Tooth next time you see me. You'll be pro-implant all the way.

Dorien--yes, Grace seemed very impressed.

Emily--I should have talked to you. I was too big of a wimp and backed out. In a few years when my new crown falls out, we will talk. It looks like I will be on the outside of 'all of the rage' for a while at least.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

So I took the plunge -- bought myself a [url=http://www.ordio.com.au/products/Fatman-iTube-ValveDock-Carbon-Edition-2.html]Fatman iTube Carbon 2[/url] and I've got to say I am extremely pleased. I actually listened to one at a friend's house several months back and just couldn't get that sound out of my head because it blew me away. I searched online everywhere I could think of for a great deal and finally found it at [url=http://www.ordio.com.au]Ordio[/url] in Westfield Bondi Junction. I phoned them first and asked a bunch of questions and everything was answered to my satisfaction so I went ahead and bought it. Shipping was very fast. Everything was perfect. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they post outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

Amazing sound...

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
