Separated at birth?

I saw a picture of Senator Ted Cruz somewhere, and at first glance I thought it was Phil Hellmuth. I looked more carefully, and came to think that they are twins separated at birth. What do you think?

Lucy's Christmas treat

Lucy's favorite treats are chunks of freeze-dried turkey from a company called "Whole Life." But they're really expensive, so most days I just break off a little piece from one for her. For Christmas, I gave her a whole one. 

At first, she could hardly believe her good fortune. 

"Is that what I think it is?" 

"Ooo, it is! I hope nobody's watching."


"Ooo, that tastes good!"

"I chomps it." (At this point, it finally occurred to me to turn on the camera's flash, which is why the remaining pictures are so much less noisy.)




"That was super-yummy!"

I hope all of you get what you most want for Christmas.

PokerNews article #45

This one is all about how to get yourself lost in a poker hand with no idea what how to proceed--in case that's something you want to do.

Take note of the cute graphic--fake iPhone map directions--that my editor, Short-Stacked Shamus, made to illustrate the article. Nice touch!
