I restrict my gambling to Wall Street's offerings od stgocks, bonds and cash.

That's enough of a challenge for me and unlike with AC, Vegas etc, I seem to come out ahead.

I checked out Mt. Airy. I investigated poker, which is my specialty. I was disappointed to find out that the rake is 10% to $5 with a bad beat jackpot extracting another $1. This is an unacceptably high rake. Therefore, I will continue to go to Atlantic City for most of my poker playing. Occasionally I might visit Mt. Airy because of the short drive and the fact that I do not have to pay for a hotel room. But ultimately, it's all about the rake. And the rake in Mt. Airy is too high. The poker room is also way too small and way too crowded. I had to wait over 1 hour to play. That is unacceptable, although it will probably improve once the novelty wears off.

Hopefully Blackjack and Craps players will find a better deal, but I doubt it.

And oh yeah, they allow smoking on the casino floor. Big negative.

They are both rigged games.

My uncle got a job as a Table Games Supervisor (pit boss?) at Harrah's Chester after working in A.C. for years. He's not looking forward to the smoke. Personally I can't spend more than 15 minutes on a casino floor where smoke is allowed. It simply drives me nuts. So in that sense, they lost me a customer before they ever got me.

I don't know what the obsession is with the casino authorities on smoking. I sense that eventually, with so few young people addicted, a lot of this will eventually go by the wayside.

We just have to work on getting it off our BEACHES!

Beautiful? Maybe if it had been 30 degrees cooler and a bit overcast.

I did make it to PA, but just the Delaware Water Gap area.
