Sorry for the lack of posts - way too much going on. I've plenty to blog about, but it will have to wait until tonite or tomorrow. I was stuck on a six hour horse rescue mission today. An old horse (29 years old!) went down at the bottom of a ravine, laying uphill, making it impossible for him to get up. It was extremely muddy and rainy and cold. An ugly, ugly situation. Six hours later, with the help of a battalion of fire fighters & their nifty tools and winches, we managed to somehow get the horse out. Any locals out there should watch Channel 9 tonight because the news crews filmed the craziness.
Usually when I'm on the news, it's for something criminal and/or deviant.
Nice to see I'm mellowing out in my old age.
I think I caught pneumonia.
We were featured on both the 5.30 and 6.00 news. "Dramatic horse rescue." Which it most certainly was - I still can't believe we didn't end up having to bury him. My buddy, Joey, who owns this ancient horse stated this on TV, "He's like a damn Rolex. He just keeps on ticking."
Whoops, I almost forgot to point out that today is the one year anniversary of one of my all-time favorite poker bloggers, MeanGene. Go read his retrospective, and hell, he even took the time to highlight some of his notable posts from the past 12 months.
Mean Gene's Poker Blog
K, hopefully I can pound out an uber post, if not tomorrow, then over the weekend.
And finally, I hope all the bloggers heading to Vegas have a blast. Can't wait to hear all about it!

I've looked at cards from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow,
It's cards illusions I recall,
I really don't know cards at all...
So many things to blog about, so little time.
While mocking me between hands last evening in my home game, an unnamed player said, "Party Poker is porno for good poker players," to which I raised my glass and guzzled.
It's funny because it's true.
And because this is Poker Blog Appreciation Week, culminating this weekend in Vegas, I offer new poker blogs as a love offering. Pimpage time, in no particular order:

Poker By Iggy!
All about my poker playing, poker related things or just my daily rants about whatever.
One thing I get all the time is people saying hi to me on Party skins. I always wondered why people were so friendly to me to say Hello Iggy all the time. I finally figured out why then... people thought I was guinnessandpoker Iggy. Sometimes I think I get unearned respect on tables because it seems like that Iggy has a lot of fans. Check out his blog sometime if you get the chance. He always has interesting messages to read!
This is not a Poker Blog
Excellent blog name. Kudos.

hectorjelly's poker Journal
Live Journal doesnt seem to have a links category, so Im going to post a few very good sites here.
First of all must be iggy: He runs a fantastic blog, each post is usually a collection of some of the most interesting poker content available at any one time on the net, all done in a stylish fashion. My only drawback is that I cringe every time he says "oh the humanity", what if I had relatives who died in the zepplin crash?
Link of the Day:
Tubcat Will Swallow Your Soul
Of all the people who have cast eyes upon the horror that is Tubcat, I think Cephsuex had the most appropriate response: "That is the kind of animal that even God fears."
