A word to my sponsors...

Tuesday, December 07, 2004

I had blisters on my feet from walking into work two days in a row before I’d properly broken in my running shoes; John went to the shops and got me some plasters so I could walk again without wincing.

I couldn’t tell how far I was walking; John gave me a pedometer.

I had trouble with this site because I’m a bit thick sometimes; Sozz talked me through it and showed me how to make it better.

I didn’t know anyone at the local newspaper that I could call and tell my story; Leon got me hooked up.

I went to the hand surgeon to see if he could fix my dodgy finger – he couldn’t – but he offered to put up some flyers in the hospital asking people to visit the website and sponsor me.

I’ve needed opponents and partners; John, Gareth, Katie, Jo, Rob and Huw have all mucked in.

Thanks to you all, and everyone else not named above, for your help and support so far.

top casino There
are two cardrooms in San Jose, Costa Rica. Each is part
of a full-service casino that features most of the games
American casinos offer. Although not ornately decorated
like some of the glitzy, neon-decked casinos in the USA,
the properties in San Jose offer a certain attitude that
a guest would remember fondly long after returning home.
One thing that both cardrooms have in common is the
friendliness of the clientele. You definitely will be
made to feel at home while playing poker in Costa Rica.
One thing to remember when you are playing poker in
Costa Rica is that tournaments here run on Costa Rican
time. What this really means is that an 8:00 tourney
will start about 8:30 or so! Some players actually show
up at 9-9:30 and expect to get into an 8:00 event.
Usually they do manage to enter and no one seems to
mind! Again, this is due the laid-back, easy-going
nature of the people.
top online casino Procedures and rules are a bit
less stringent than many of us cardroom regulars are
used to. Once you have played here for a while, you will
see that there is really no problem with anything. The
locals here seem to be very fair-minded and ethical and
they play as hard against each other as they do against
their foreign neighbors, making for good competition as
well as camaraderie. There is no such thing as a
discipline problem and time outs are unheard of. The
normal pre-tournament warning lecture by the director is
totally unnecessary here and is therefore eliminated
from the speech! The entire venue is more like that of a
home game than anything else, and everyone has a good
time, win or lose. When and if you are fortunate enough
to visit San Jose, be sure to stop by the cardrooms and
online casino
It will be like coming home to play
with old friends. Following are descriptions of both

buy real estate in Costa Rica

If you are looking at real estate overseas, or for a way to get
better returns in your IRA, here is little secret your stock broker will
never tell you about... The IRS lets you purchase
real estate Costa Rica
with income that is tax-deferred. That means that many savvy investors
are investing their IRA funds in
real estate in Costa Rica
The one exception is that you can't use the
Costa Rica real estate in your
IRA as your residence or vacation home, if you are under 59 1/2. Your IRA
custodian must actually buy the real estate you are investing in. For more info go to
