Are you a bingo fan? Do you also love online gaming? Are you perhaps a bit of a fan of online games such as the Rocky Slots Game? Well, why not try Pop Bingo?! Pop Bingo works on a very simple premise; like most numbers games in the online room, the quicker you match the selections on the card, the more money you stand to win.
The reason why bingo games are so attractive to a wider audience is that, as with Betfair Fantastic Four Slots, they provide an ideal opportunity to win big off just a very small stake. The minimum you can play is just 0.10p and for this you could be walking away with a four figure amount as a reward. What more could you want?
If you can get all of your 15 numbers drawn in less than 40 balls, you will win the top prize in the game. This will obviously vary depending on the level of your stake. The higher the stake you opt to play with, the bigger the amount on offer will be. Even if you don’t hit your selections within this time, there are some prizes on offer all the way through to 88 balls.
The game will conclude when 75 of the 90 numbers are drawn from the machine. This means that there are only 15 numbers that are not pulled out from the pot. It is purely based on chance, so you have just as much chance as anybody who takes part, regardless of experience or knowledge of other casino or bingo games.
It is very easy to follow the progress of your card because, when one of your numbers is hit, it will be highlighted a shade of yellow. This will allow you to see clearly exactly what is going on and then determine how many more selections you need on your game card from the draw for a prize. What also helps is having a table of all 90 numbers on the right side of the board. Again, the numbers that have already been drawn turn yellow and the rest will always stay white.

If you stop to think about it – it could be perceived that all online Bingo sites are largely the same. After all, Bingo is a game of pure chance and there are laws governing the operation of such sites – to ensure that no games can ever be fixed to maximise income etc. So is there anything to choose between the alternatives?
The short answer is “yes” in terms of initial promotions and rewards for new members etc. As an example, the fast-growing Jackpotjoy site offers new members £30 for £10 deposited. It also offers £20 for recommending new members. The offers are real and genuine and you do get something for nothing.
But when the offers have run out – what then? Is there really much difference between the various well-known sites? Again, the answer seems to be a resounding “yes” but this is mainly to do with keeping up your level of interest.
If you keep playing the same games continually, there is a chance you’ll get bored. Having said that, some customers positively welcome monotony in the Bingo they play – so there really is no “one size fits all” approach here. If we go back to Jackpotjoy again you’ll soon see that its nine different online Bingo offerings offer something for everyone which may help explain why it’s growing so quickly.
To be successful, any Bingo website has to appeal to two very different audiences at the same time; namely, the old traditional Bingo audience and the modern user who may play a game or two whilst doing other things online – or maybe even working. After all, online Bingo needn’t demand high levels of concentration – it all depends how you want to play. You can even play for nothing with Jackpotjoy if you’re just playing for the sheer fun of the game.
And that’s the magic word for many new players today – “fun”. Today’s newcomers to Bingo want to have a little fun online whilst doing other things – yet still have the chance of landing a big cash prize. And many of Jackpotjoy’s big cash Bingo prizes regularly run into many tens of thousands of pounds – so there’s a real possibility of a little dabble turning into a life-changing experience. And if not, well … you’ve been thoroughly entertained by the creativity of the games along the way – all for what is a very small outlay for most players.

Become a Facebook FAN!
Everyone is on Facebook these days. Companies big and small, your mother (uh oh), your mother-in-law (double uh oh), your kids (they’re embarrassed you’re here), your boss (triple uh oh), your co-workers (this could be bad, or good), and your real world friends, including those “fab” gal pals who make it their mission to post snaps of you taken when you’ve had too much to drink and decide you’re a really, really good dancer.
It’s hard to create a Facebook page for yourself that reflects your many “interests” yet keeps you out of trouble with everyone. While “everyone” is probably okay with the fact that you like to post photos of dogs dressed up in holiday costumes (sample below), your boss might not like to see that update you made about falling asleep at your desk, or how much time you spend on Farmville. And while your friends may love those too-too-tipsy shots of you shaking your groove thing, I can guarantee your mother-in-law will use this against you somehow.
Bunny doesn’t want a bland Facebook page, but, then again, Bunny doesn’t want to get fired either. If you have any tips on making Facebook work every which way for everything and everybody, through privacy settings, or creating separate profiles, or some such, post your comments here please!
Is it just me, or do these people look completely nuts?
If seeing abandoned Christmas trees awaiting the chipper bums you out like it does me, maybe this article will cheer you up: http://www.peoplepets.com/news/cute/rescued-goats-eat-discarded-christmas-trees-like-candy/1

The plot of “Twilight” in less than one minute:
My sister sent me this link (how she found her way here I do not know) and within seconds I was living vicariously through this self-described recovering control freak new yorker who isn’t ashamed to chase a waffle truck and has replaced her television with a tray of gin (it was love at first blog-entry). I will be checking in here from time to time, and you probably should, too.
Walmart.com is now selling caskets, urns and funeral jewelry. I find this vaguely disturbing, but I’m not certain why. And can anyone please tell me what “funeral jewelry” is?!
According to Ad Age Magazine, Costco, Amazon and some place called Caskets2U (thank god they didn’t call themselves CastketsAreUs) also have an array of death supplies, including the “Mom Remembered” casket, with embroidered roses and and the word “Mother” inside the lid (um, folks, mom can’t read when she’s in there — better to put that on the outside don’t you think?).
Well, I’m holding out for branded funeral urns (36% of the people who died last year were cremated). Can’t you just picture how fabulous your ashes would look in a glittering “Hello Kitty” urn? Or a Burberry Urn with its own little trademark plaid scarf wrapped about it? Or best of all, for those who liked to knock a few back in their day, the Absolute Vodka Urn, shaped like the beloved bottle? People, there is money to be made here!
