Blogging - part 2

This is in response to Winston's comments. It was turning into a long reply, so I figured I might as well post it as a new entry.

One purpose of a blog is for people to rant, I guess. If people have a decent rant, let's hear it. Though I still feel that blogs should be educational and informative. (which your blog, Winston, certainly is)

I have a problem with adults copying immature adolescent behavior and thinking that it's perfectly fine. ( I'm not talking about wanting to stay vital and active throughout your life.)
Who started the trend that blogs were for divulging personal information? I suppose it was a young person, because that's typical immature behavior for them. It's NOT normal behavior for an adult. That's my point. When I come across a blog written by an adult who is revealing all sorts of personal information about themsleves and their relationships, it a red flag that the author is mentally unstable and I move on. It's crossed the bounds of being a normal rant.

[btw - I don't understand the Twitter phenom either. If it's being used to spread a news story or educate in some way, fine. And if you're a 17 yr old wanting to keep in touch with your friends to let them know that you're going to Dairy Queen later, well, okay, I can understand that.
But if you're an adult and feel you need to post your daily activities on Twitter, there's something wrong with that].

This is all a sad reflection of society today, and its decline.
We expect children & adolescents and 20-somethings to be self involved and think the world cares about their lives. IOW - Narcissism is kind of normal in young people. But as people mature, they realize that it's a big world out there and they aren't the center of the universe anymore. It's what being emotionally mature is all about.
When people over the age of 30 are still so self-absorbed that they have a need or desire to tell the world about their personal day to day life expecting some kind of sympathetic response from strangers, it's pathological (btw-part of the definiton of narcissism is: "requiring excessive admiration, adulation, attention & affirmation" ; "constantly envious of others") and if this becomes a more common and accepted practice in society, we're in trouble, not just as a society, but a civilization.

I think you should first understand the nature of social networks like Twitter, facebook, orkut or myspace. These are exactly around for people to vent and talk about their silly lives. I don't see any thing wrong with that. I may not like it and I stay away from it but thats what they are for.

Yes, I know what they're for.
If the people using them are high school or college age, fine.
If older adults are using them to get work or educate or inform or even be creative, I'll accept that.

But an adult who thinks that a public blog or social network is a proper place to repeatedly vent about & reveal personal aspects of their life & relationships to strangers, is an unstable, immature, mentally unbalanced individual. Honestly, if they were told that and referred to a therapist, they'd probably be better off.

maybe she doesnt have any one to talk to. Take it easy man!

Most of these people talk about going out with their friends, so they have people to talk to.
As I stated before, this is pathological behavior - it's not enough for them to tell their friends, they have to tell strangers on the internet & they look forward to the attention and sympathetic responses.

It's just another group of sick people on the web to be avoided.

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.

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

So I went ahead and splurged -- bought myself a [url=]Fatman iTube Valvedock Carbon[/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 for a great deal and finally found it at [url=]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. Dispatch was surprisingly fast. Everything was as it should be. I'm pretty darn happy and I'm playing it right now. Not sure if they dispatch outside of Oz but you won't be sorry if they do.

Best accessory I could have bought...

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.
