drawing, which upset a couple Bingo players who felt I was wrong for accepting drawing tickets I had not earned myself. Management said it is perfectly acceptable to give your tickets to someone else if you don’t want or need them. I feel I won the TV fair and square, while a few others beg to differ. Whose side are you on? —Jim Metzger, Portland, Oregon

Getting Static Over TV Dear Aunt Bingo, Recently, a Bingo hall had an end-of-the-month drawing for a 52-inch television. For each Bingo session buy-in during the month, you received one drawing ticket. A friend of mine gave me the 13 tickets he earned throughout the month. He indicated that he had no need for a new TV and would not be in attendance the night of the drawing. (One rule of the drawing was that you must be present to win.) I ended up winning the TV

Dear Jim, I’m totally on your side for this one. These folks can gripe all they want to; the bottom line is they are just jealous you won and they didn’t. Management said it was perfectly fine for you to accept another player’s tickets. End of story. Enjoy that fabulous new TV! — Aunt Bingo Share your views!

VA Thieves Never Learn Criminals just can’t seem to help themselves when it comes to stealing from the Department of Veterans Affairs. What they haven’t figured out is that they will eventually get caught. In a despicable scheme, a New Jersey man has admitted to helping steal and then sell $8.2 million in HIV drugs. One of his theft partners worked in a VA hospital pharmacy and was discovered via surveillance footage. The thefts happened over the course of 27 months. How, we would like to know, could someone be allowed to walk out with $8.2 million in drugs in her bag without being stopped by security? The U.S. Attorney had a big day in arresting 16 people in a massive kickback-and-bribery scheme that included vendors and employees at two Florida VA hospitals. The

PICKS OF THE MONTH Queenpins (R) — We can stop complaining that there are no unique ideas for movies and everything is a remake. This based-on-a-true-story comedy starring Kristen Bell and Kirby Howell-Baptiste is all about the intriguing and exciting world of extreme couponing! But not just everyday couponing, the plot soon delves into a multi-million-dollar counterfeit coupon scam started by two best friends who cheated corporations and attempted to pad the pockets of fellow budgetconscious housewives. First released in theaters in early September, streaming is available beginning 9/30. (Paramount+)

The Problem With Jon Stewart — Six years after vacating his host position on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart is making a return to television. Some may question if we really need another nighttime political and social commentary show. The answer is a resounding YES, because it’s Jon Stewart. In this new series, each hour-long episode will focus on a single topic, with new episodes airing every two weeks. In addition to well-known current affairs, topics will also include advocacy work on which Stewart has focused his attention over the past years while he was out of the spotlight. (AppleTV)

$20 million in thefts started in 2009 and wasn’t discovered in audits. Their methods of theft and the charges were numerous and varied: inflating the cost of goods sold or shorting the orders, paying kickbacks, making purchases with VA credit cards, receiving bribes, healthcare fraud and ordering from companies that didn’t exist. The last of the band of thieves was recently sentenced. In a smaller but equally important scheme, a Washington landlord admitted to scamming $16,000 for HUD-VA housing for a homeless veteran. Not only was he billing the government for the monthly rent, but he was collecting from the veteran as well, a clear violation of the HUD-VASH program. For this he will get nailed for three times the amount he stole. The formerly homeless veteran will share in this and get a settlement of $4,000. The one big beef I have is that none of these criminals ever go to jail for very long.

company emerged that achieved phenomenal growth in number of independent retailers and profits. But after that impressive rise came the inevitable fall of both product quality and customer satisfaction. But who was to blame? Was it simply a matter of too much too fast, or was something more sinister at hand? Through interviews with its founders and numerous retailers, the story of clothier LuLaRoe unravels (much like their leggings did). The women who hawked the goods at home parties and through Facebook Live streams either made fortunes or lost everything, but they were all sold promises that were too big to sustain. Not surprisingly, founders DeAnne and Mark Stidham give off a strange televangelist power couple vibe from which you can’t look away. (Prime Video) Felix and the Hidden Treasure (PG) (Animated) — Two years after his father disappeared at sea, 12-year-old Felix decides to venture out alone to find him. His mother is off enjoying a mom’s vacay on a cruise, so she won’t notice his absence. After his raft capsizes, an old bearded sailor with a wooden-legged parrot agrees to take him on board his craft and help him search for his pops. They end up on Dark Shadow Island with its legend of hidden treasure. But it’s not your typical treasure of gold and jewels, it’s something more existential. Or is it?? (Hulu)

The Case of the Bitten Bingo Balls We were a little late getting to our favorite Saturday night Bingo game, so I was still daubing the Bonanzas when I heard the machine start up. I kept on daubing, hurrying to be ready for play, when I noticed a buzz starting near the caller. Everyone was looking at the machine where the mixer was stirring the balls and the blower was blowing, but no balls were bouncing up and into the tube. The workers turned everything off, checked the plugs and started it all over, and again the balls were mixed, but didn’t bounce up into the chute to be called. Finally, Connie, the caller, reached in the side and picked up a ball to examine. It had a small hole in it, a bite mark to be exact, and so

NOVEMBER 2021 did the next ball and the next and it appeared most of them. “That’s the strangest thing I’ve ever seen,” said the caller. “Do any of you know anything about this?” Ted, the Bingo boss, examined a ball carefully and said, “It must be a cat. It’s too small for a dog. How on earth do you suppose a cat got into the Bingo machine?” “Can we play?” came from several directions. Bingo players do not like to be diverted from their favorite recreation. “Yes, I think so. Just give me a few minutes,” said Ted, as he found a small basket and directed Connie to dig the balls out of the machine and put them in it. Next he came over to us. “I hate to ask you, Kate, but could you help out this evening? We don’t seem to have an extra set of balls.” “Sure,” she said. “What do you want me to do?” “We need somebody to draw the balls for the caller. You’ll have to be blindfolded to assure fairness. What do you say?” “Hey, ok,” she said enthusiastically. “I’ve never done that before.” They seated her at the front of the room, covered her eyes with a blindfold and the play began, Kate solemnly pulling balls from the basket and handing them to Connie to call. I played both our cards and was kept busy daubing. It turned out to be one of those nights where I won. Actually, it was Kate’s cards that won, but I didn’t say anything

about that, considering that someone in the group might think we had rigged the whole thing. People are very distrustful when money is involved. At intermission, Ted returned with a full set of new balls that he had managed to find in the back storage area. The new balls were put in the machine, thoroughly mixed, and Kate returned to our table, glad to be rid of the blindfold. Unfortunately, it was the end of Kate’s winning streak. Neither of us won anything during the second half. Just before the final blackout, Ted again took the microphone and announced to the crowd, “I think we may have solved the mystery of the bitten balls,” he said. “I talked to our cleaning woman, Ginnie Perkins. She said she opened the machine to give the glass a good cleaning inside and out and left the balls in a basket. She said a neighborhood cat had been hanging around.” He went on to explain that she guessed it could have gotten to the balls when she went out to take a call. She admitted a few had rolled out of the basket when she returned, but those appeared fine, so she just dumped them all back in the machine. “How do you suppose it managed to bite just about every single ball?” asked Kate. To which Connie replied, “I expect it liked to hear them pop!”

Bob Bungles Bingo Part Two If you happened to read last month’s column, you are well aware of the fact that I FINALLY got the chance to be a full-time Bingo caller and found the job next to impossible. Ever since retiring back in my hometown in southern Indiana, I have been playing in the same school cafeteria in which I first played Bingo in 1957. I was asked to be a caller. I said YES. It was then that I got a new respect for the men and women around the country who call out the numbers. The job was much more difficult than I imagined. And, to add to the difficulty, my old hall had a lot of extra gimmicks that made it nearly impossible to keep up. As I mentioned last month, the hall awards cow bells to five different people before the main games. Anyone who has a birthday gets a bell and the others are given out in a drawing of names placed in a hopper when you buy your cards. That means I had to know

who got which bell and pay them each time their number was called. For Old Bob, it was a mess. Between forgetting to pay people, not being able to hear timid people MUMBLE Bingo when they won, and dropping the balls on the floor, it was NOT a good debut for me as a Bingo caller. I finally got through the evening in one piece. In spite of my problems and frustrations, I was asked to come back and do it again. I said, NO. I had had enough. Call me a wimp if you wish, but I found it takes a special kind of person to not only call Bingo but to deal with all the side issues, the book work and the procedures. So, my hat is off to the people who DO call Bingo. Please let all of them know how much we appreciate them and how tough we know the job really is. Let me close with an email I got at bobonbingo@earthlink. net from Todd H. in Paris, Illinois: “Bob, I hope this reaches you soon enough. I want everyone in the country to know just how much we have to be thankful for this time around. And, one of the best things we can be thankful for is the fact that most of us still have a place to play the game we love the best… Bingo. So, this time of the year, when we ARE saying thanks, let’s remember to be thankful for Bingo. Even though I seldom win, I still smile every time I hear someone else shout: BINGO!” Next month we’ll wrap up the year.

* The Chocolate River in the “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” was real! The production used 150,000 gallons of water, cream and chocolate. But the ingredients spoiled and smelled really bad when the movie ended. * Studies have shown that playing Tetris can curb sex, drug and food cravings. * A Vietnamese man was hospitalized after drinking too much methanol. Doctors transfused 15 cans of beer into his body to revive him. The liver breaks down ethanol before methanol, which gave doctors more time to do dialysis to remove the methanol from his system. * Santa Claus was issued a pilot’s license from the U.S. government in 1927, along with airway maps and a promise to keep the runway lights on. * The fighting on D-Day was so fierce that as much as 4% of the sand on Normandy beaches is magnetic due to shrapnel that has been broken down over the decades into sand-sized bits.

* Keep the yolks in hard-boiled eggs from crumbling by wetting your knife between slices. * “Save plastic bags that cannot be recycled, and use them to collect food scraps that cannot be composted or flushed.” — B.M. in New York * “I use double-stick tape to hang lighter items on my walls, since it does not leave a hole, and I am a renter. You also can use it to reduce noise from vibrations. For instance, I used it in my car to keep the carpet lying flat in the trunk.” — J.T. via e-mail * “To soften butter without melting it, warm a bowl that is bigger than the butter stick and invert it over the butter on a plate. It’s nice before a meal because it makes a hard stick of butter easier to spread on bread rolls, but not so soft that you use too much.” — T.G. in Indiana * “That time of the year is almost here. You know, the time when running the heater gives the whole house the zaps. To keep our carpets from giving us static shock, we fill a water spray bottle with 1 part laundry softener and 4 parts water. Give the air and carpet a spritz, and it kills the zaps.” — A.O. in Canada

Poetry Corner HOLIDAY JOY

by Charlene James-Duguid Yes, Yesterday, we found a duck. Not a wild one or even a fresh one, Merely a frozen slab or Some pale avian Raised in the wilds of Indiana Amish country. But it is a duck, granted, substituted For a wild goose, Chosen by default. At least, It’s not a “turducken” One of the Cajun Marketing ploy birds Impossible to bred, Hybrided only in a Warped MBA’s brain. Lucky we were able To brave, then survive, Torrential rains to fill Our holiday larder. Of course, it required Meeting and combating The Cranberry Dilemma, Another repacking ruse, Four ounces less for same Price, making past recipes impossible To convert, Unless you use Clementines Instead of big, Juicy oranges.

Anathema to a real chef On second thought, let’s try it. Along with white gravy Concocted with A mammoth parsnip Menu still unclear, Let’s refocus on the decor. Tree or not? With 23 acres of nature’s best Walnut, Poplar, Locusts , Elms, Why cut one of these or a Stately pine. How to decorate Santa’s mechanical band. Find a crèche. Not much else. No reason. For We have the best of everything. We have each other.

Gift Baskets or Cash? Dear Guy, It’s really fun to win cash at Bingo, but I wonder why halls don’t offer other kinds of prizes as well: food baskets, gift certificates, stuff like that. It seems to me that offering different kinds of prizes would make Bingo more interesting and might even make it possible to give out MORE prizes. —LJ, Florida, via e-mail

NOVEMBER 2021 Dear LJ, Actually, many Bingo games do offer prizes other than Bingo, but these tend to be the larger casino or Indian Nation-type games that have bigger budgets and less restrictive regulations. One of the best prizes I’ve seen as a giveaway is passage on the World Championship Bingo Tournament & Gaming Cruise— and no, I am not just saying that because I write for the Bingo Bugle. It’s an awesome weeklong Caribbean cruise that includes your transportation to and from the ship and days and days of Bingo play for cash prizes. Big games offer giveaways of many other items as well, but usually these are through drawings rather than prizes for specific games. The reason? Without question it’s because players prefer to win cash to anything else a hall may think to offer. Once we win the cash, we’re more than happy to go out and buy our own prize with it! —Guy

Q: My two cats, Mitsy and Bitsy, got along well for nearly five years. Bitsy is 11 years old, about six years older than Mitsy. In the past couple of months, they squall and squabble with each other every time they’re in the same room. What is going on, and how do I stop it? — Cara C., Albuquerque, New Mexico A: Take both of your cats to the veterinarian as soon as an appointment is available. Because the behavior just recently started after years of tranquility, a health issue could be at the root of their fighting.

GOODS & SERVICES

Senior cats are especially likely to develop conditions that cause them to be cranky or more territorial than usual. Pain from arthritis or other conditions can be a big factor in making Bitsy irritable, tired and just not in the mood to hang out with Mitsy. Likewise, Mitsy could be developing a medical condition; it’s best to rule out physical problems in both cats. Once their health has been assessed and treatment, if necessary, started, then the hard work of reconciling the two can begin. Keep the cats separated at first -- on opposite sides of the house, if possible, in closed rooms. Each day, reintroduce them by placing a small plate of food in front of each door and letting them out. If they calmly eat, then the next day, move both plates closer. Observe the cats as they eat; if they begin to growl or tense up, put both back into their rooms before they escalate -- fighting is very traumatic for them. Shift the bowls back a bit and try again.

Game Selection Quick Tips Part I With blackjack, game selection can be as important as knowing playing strategies. Following is Tip Number One for what you should be on the lookout for when you sit down to play. More next month. #1. Don’t play any game that pays 6 to 5 on a blackjack. The margins on blackjack tables have been steadily declining as players become smarter. In order to increase their bottom line, casinos have implemented blackjack games that pay 6 to 5, instead of 3 to 2 for an untied player’s blackjack. By making one simple change in payoff they are able to improve their margins without paying any royalties.

WISCONSIN EDITION

NOVEMBER 2021 But how do you get the public to buy-in to a 6-5 game? Brilliant— offer it with a single deck game. Most blackjack players remember that the fewer the decks, the better the game. And this was always the case when blackjacks paid the traditional 3-2. Casino managers use the single-deck game as the hook to get players to sit down and play their “new single deck game,” while they fleece them with the 6-5 payoff on untied blackjacks. Pretty neat, huh? So, what’s the fuss about 6-5 vs. 3-2? Here’s the low down on 6-5. In order to compare 6-5 with 3-2 you have to convert them to the same lowest common denominator, which happens to be 10. A 3-2 payoff is the same as a 1510 payoff. Likewise, a 6-5 payoff is the same as a 12-10 payoff. Now compare the two: 15-10 vs. 12-10. If you are a $10 bettor, you’ll get paid $12 for an untied blackjack in a 6-5 game and $15 in a 3-2 game, a difference of $3 per blackjack. You’ll average about 4 to 5 blackjacks per hour so playing a 6-5 game will cost you about $12$15 per hour. This translates to a 1.4% increase in the house edge. The bottom line is avoid playing any 6-5 games. Usually there will be a sign on the table to indicate the 6-5 payoff on blackjack. Some casinos have the 6-5 payoff imprinted on the layout. If you are not sure, just ask the dealer.

What's News in Nevada . . . Another Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” appeared at Area15 between April and July. Now, the competing “Immersive Van Gogh” has opened on the third floor of Crystals Mall at CityCenter. This is the original immersive exhibit featuring the art of Vincent Van Gogh via 60,000 frames of video, 90 million pixels, and 500,000 cubic feet of projections produced by an Italian “master of digital art who merges state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, and world-class animation.” The exhibit runs through November 28; hours are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily and tickets start at $64 (tickets for the other Van Gogh experience started at $35). VP Cosmo Jackpot A video poker player recently hit a $1 million jackpot at Cosmopolitan. He was playing Triple Double Bonus on a $25 Ten Play in the high-limit room when he was dealt four aces with a kicker. Dealt. Easy money, right? Well, he was betting $1,250 a whack (10 times $25 times the 5-unit max bet). The Cosmo says it was the largest local progressive (as opposed to widearea, typical in big slot jackpots) in the casino’s history. Local Hits for $1 Million A local woman hit a Buffalo Grand progressive jackpot at the Cannery early on a Sunday morning this past September for $1,024,065. It was the second major Buffalo

jackpot at a Boyd Gaming property in the past two months; on July 15, a visitor from Hawaii won nearly $650,000 at the Fremont. A Christmas Light Maze Enchant Christmas, a “whimsical and heartfelt Christmas light maze,” will make its Las Vegas debut on November 26 at the Las Vegas Ballpark. Enchant Christmas will “transform the Ballpark into a winter wonderland” full of Christmas magic and cheer. Guests embark on a Great Search to help save Christmas by locating Santa’s missing reindeer, journeying through a “radiant forest” illuminated by millions of lights and art installations. Also offered will be an Ice Skating Trail, a Christmas village, and a live Santa Claus. It runs through January 2, 2022. Newton Until the New Year Wayne Newton began a residency at the Flamingo on October 23rd— with thirteen shows in November, eight in December and one on New Year’s Day, January 2022. The new show, “Wayne: Up Close and Personal,” launched the newly named Wayne Newton Theater, a venue within the venue of Bugsy’s Cabaret. The show will “present the entertainer in an intimate setting where he will interact with the audience, perform some favorite songs and share personal career highlights through songs, film clips, anecdotes and audience Q&A.”

Count Blessings, Not Calories Elections are held in November because it’s the best time for picking out a turkey. —Maxine First, this is a month to say thanks for our blessings so, as has been my tradition, I want to thank my friends and family for putting up with me. I’m a handful of old lady angst sometimes, so I thank them, especially my husband Robert, for tolerating me. I also thank my loyal readers Chris, Carolyn, Donna, Arnold, and Sandy to name a few. Thanks to Tara, my publisher, Dick who introduced me to Bingo Bugle, and all the workers and players at Bingo everywhere. Second, how many of us will gobble down a Thanksgiving feast this month then wobble back to the couch to watch a football game, or take a nap? On average, that tradition means that each adult consumes around 4,500 calories on this annual pig out day. That number of calories is equal to eating 28 glazed donuts in one sitting; or 16 slices of pizza; or 61 chicken wings! Then, after our gluttony is satisfied, some of us go shopping that evening or early the next morning on Black Friday. One year, with our children otherwise occupied, Robert and I ventured to Canada over Thanksgiving weekend. Casino Windsor was not crowded; no turkey in the restaurants; no black Friday. That’s because Canadians celebrate their Thanksgiving on the second Monday of October. Now, that’s a thought. Move

Thanksgiving to October 31st and eliminate Halloween. Children could still dress up like the little turkeys they are, and we could stuff them with lots of candy and treats after the big holiday meal. Hee, hee, I’m kidding, so please, if you’re a Halloween lover, do not bombard this tough old turkey with irate emails. Two friends accompanied Robert and I to Vegas recently. We stayed downtown and we enjoyed people watching on Fremont Street. However, I would advise parents with children to be cautious doing this. There were lots of g-stings and hanging tassels on men and women that left nothing to the imagination, as well as profanity, and obscene signs. Truth be told though; this is a fascinating spectacle for adults who enjoy being appalled at what other people are willing to do for a few dollar donations. The other side of this coin is that there are free concerts, one-of-a-kind art creations, interesting kiosks selling unique objects, and an overhead laser light show, not to mention Bingo at the Plaza. My advice is to visit downtown with an open mind and enjoy the Fremont Street Experience ambiance for what it is, an entertaining way to pass some time while contemplating your next big win at the slots. On November 11, please remember our veterans as it’s Veterans Day. The world is a scary place and those in the military do what they do to keep us safe. Those who gave their lives should be remembered as well as those who have served or are currently serving. Pick up their tab for a restaurant meal; buy them a drink; take them to Bingo, give them a big hug and say thank you. They deserve it all as some of them gave their all. Until next month, may Lady Luck blow you kisses as you dance out the door with dollars. Win big. Contact me via email at homemailbox@roadrunner.com to share your thoughts.
