Apologies to my Canadian kin, whom I forgot to include in my dictionary publications. I will write a complete Mounties guide to the English language with Canuck references. I have banished myself to Prince of Wales Island with a ball of string and a nail for fishing, my carton of First Trax Brown Al...

Well, I speak English, cobber, I occasionally lay in my swag and play euchre whilst on the dog and bone. I go to the dunny sometimes when I put the game on hold. I get a beer from my esky (chiily bin for our mates over the ditch) while i am lounging around in my underdaks and thongs (jandals for our...

Bugger me, I think I see a bunny rabbit.

Sometimes the criticism of nics is 'guide personal', this should not be so, they should look at the bigger picture. I have created nics only to find they have been offensive in another language and personally asked a guide to 'playerize' them. But if nics like 'Anorexic calls Bulimic results' get ba...

Euchre enforced Day

I propose that since we are all non addicted Euchre players, we should have a Euchre enforced day... I propose we have it on a Monday, mainly because we don't want to do any work that day anyway. So Feb 19th it is (or Feb 20th for down underers), that gives those of us whom are slow readers to get r...

The current computer program allows us different options to 'check', e'g length of game, why not allow a set of ranges to check for the setting of a tables rating lower limit? There could be - 25, 50, 75 and if u like 100, just click on the appropriate value and that is the maximum decrease against ...

Andy, we all know u had a 5 card deck, so the odds were actually.................5/5 x 4/4 x 3/3 x 2/2 x 1/1 = 120/120 = 100% chance

Now the real question...did u call it as a 'loner'?

Read the cards and keep counting :D

Thank you Jonas. I welcome and appreciate that sentiment.

Remember, prevention is the best form of medicine, because after the outbreak it can become pandemic.

Very one paced reply Jonas. Exactly as has been dished out before. Do you guys have your heads in the sand? This is a genuine call for help and not a personal affront. Being down in the lobby hearing all the negative comments is sad. Most people wont put in a report because of apathetic replies, an...
