Superbowl Sunday!

About two days ago, John and I determined that the upcoming weekend was when the Superbowl was being planned - and we didn't have plans. The Whites were headed to Steph's family's house - so without them around to hole-up and be cozy with, we had to make alternative plans. So, we threw an invite out to the Quigs and Meyers on Saturday - and set out some "word-of-mouth" invites towards the collegiates - and this is what we came up with:

It was a house full of folks - and fun folks at that. We whipped up some grub - taco style - and encouraged everyone to return as needed to keep filling up.

In this picture: Becca, Julie, Kaela, and Kelli =)

Aaron and Will got thrown into this shot.

And, oh yeah - I was there too......

Aaron loves to mess with the perfect picture set-up....you'll note he's often the one doing the goofy pose. He couldn't resist messing with the boys in our efforts to capture them being silly.

Meanwhile, the girls took advantage of the gorgeous day outside (it's about time!) - and jumped away.

During halftime, while I introduced the girls to the features of the Wii Fit Plus - the kids, guys, and Heather - played a serious game of street football.

At this point, Heather had joined us - (in the center), as well as Cyrus - just next to Will.

Kelli, Emily, and Heather - posing right as the second half was beginning.

At this point, the Saints are up - and that's making the bulk of this crowd pretty happy. The commercials have been okay - lots of them focusing on men needing to reclaim their manhood - not sure what that says about society. It seems the E-Trade baby commercial has brought about the most laughter....

Post-game update: The SAINTS WON! And, this is my favorite image of the night, Drew Brees holding his baby boy. Brayden was able to pass on the trivia that his little boy was born on Drew's 30th birthday. So heartwarming, I am happy for Drew, for the Saints, and of course, the whole town of New Orleans which is overdue for some serious celebration.....
All in all - a very successful party, especially when you consider how little effort went into throwing it together. =)

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.

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.
