All sorts of cash options

Las Vegas, ok so first night in…
Money converted into chips = 0
Cost to take 0 from the ATM = (must remember to take more out next time)
Hours spent playing blackjack = 3
Hours since woke up (in England) = 28
Value of chips at end of night = 5
Net gain/loss = Minus
Beers drunk = 5
Beer cost each =
Beers bought from bar = 1
Free beer at tables = I had 4 at the table, worth (- for tip per round)
Tip to dealer at end =
Overall gain/loss for the week so far (incl alcohol savings + tips + ATM costs) =
-15 (gambling prize) + 24 (alcohol saving) – 14 (tips) – 6 (for 1st beer) – 4 (ATM) =
Minus (could do better)
- If you split 2 aces, you only get one more card for each ace (like doubling)
- Wisconsin is beautiful but full of mosquitos in the summer and snow in the winter. Diane the croupier: "I got tired of shovelling snow in Winconsin so moved to Vegas and ended up shovelling something else instead"
- Insurance in Blackjack is not worth it (I never do and asked if anyone ever does, Diane said "the book says" the odds were too high to make it worth it)

Daily Photo – Chihuly in Space
I know you guys don’t get tired of the Chihuly pieces, and neither do I! In fact, I like this one so much that I use it as my desktop wallpaper.
Just as much thought goes into lighting these as it does the creation. I always wonder if he has the "lighting scenario" in mind when forming the piece and its colors. Or maybe, it’s just so awesome and naturally formed that it looks good under any kind of light. Heck, it would probably even look good in a 7-11 at 1 AM when all the pasty-lonely people stumble in for a Big Gulp and a Snickers. I can say this because I am often one of those people.
By the way, you all are free to use my images as desktop wallpaper, for fun, on your blogs, etc. That is the beauty of the Creative Commons license. If you are going to use them for any commercial purposes whatsoever, contact licensing at stuckincustoms.com — the team there will take care of you.
Charging the iPad Problems
Having trouble charging your iPad? I’ve updated my HyperMac Review a bit with information on how I am using it to keep things charged on the road. My Macbook Pro just ain’t cuttin’ it!
I also have much greater luck when plugging it directly into the wall with the plug that was included. In just a few hours, the iPad is full. The USB connection to my new MacBook Pro just charges it way too slow! I think we have all gotten used to how fast the iPhone charges… and the iPad is just a different beast. I will keep testing the this battery thing and let you know how many charges it can supply… I’ll update the HyperMac review here when I figure it out. Anyway, there are two options for your charging the iPad problems – hope they help!
