For Life, When in Newport: “Newport Grand Casino”

When in Newport you may feel like its all yachting, shopping, and Summer Cottage tours. But that is not so. You can also gamble!

This type of activity is always of great relief to my favorite travel buddies i.e. my mother and cousin.

Newport Grand Casino is much like the town it resides in, small. There are two floors of mostly slot machines, around one thousand, I believe. There are even several tables of roulette and blackjack that are played electronically without a dealer, in person. That was a first for me. Technology is really changing every aspect of our lives. 

Since I am not a huge gambler, I was happy to see there was a bar where there was live music and a reasonably big concession stand. A bag of popcorn and a properly mixed drink goes along way with me. 

While visiting Pittsburgh I passed through Rivers Casino which was a medium size casino and thus not much bigger than Newport’s ( As for why I was there well, I was traveling with my mother. Notice a pattern yet? 

Despite my overall lack of enthusiasm when it comes to casinos, I only made my first bet on my way home after five days in Vegas, I did my best to participate while I was in Newport. I think I spent about forty bucks which went up and down all night. I was fine with it. I was entertained and tried a bunch of different games so for me it was money worth spent. After that I was over it and exhausted from my very busy day. 

However if you are looking for more pizzazz with your slots there is Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island. According to Google Maps it is about forty-five minutes outside of Newport and boasts it’s the largest gambling and entertaining venue in Rhode Island. Considering we are talking about the smallest state in the union I am not sure what that means. At the very least there are a few thousand slot machines, many table games, and races to get your wallet pumping. There also is over eighteen restaurants where you can get your chow on.

While Newport Grand Casino isn't big, isn't flashy, it does’t need to be. It gets the job done just fine the way it is. It is a great way to add some excitement to your stay without being too overwhelming. It is also a pretty good way to end a night, especially if you are coming up roses.

For My Madness During Migraine Awareness Month

Last weekend as I sat staring at the blank page in front of me, I was still surprised and elated that I had an entire day to myself and unlike past experiences it was filled with what I wanted when I wanted it. There were a few rough moments but when I consider the previous twelve hours (and the days to come) have been better than the last week. Especially this last week even though I had braced myself ahead of time, I just didn’t know I should have braced for a more serious episode. I am a chronic migraine sufferer for so many years I don’t quite remember when they started exactly which is ironic because I can remember every special event they have ruined. I remember plays or dinners I was at where I don’t remember what happened but I could tell you what I felt minute by minute. It amazing how the mind works, especially when it’s operated by a migraine brain. In the last few years, specifically the last few years since I have been going to the Montefiore Headac

For Find Out Friday - Why Do Emery Boards Make My Skin Crawl?

You know that sound a fingernail makes when it scratches against a chalkboard?  You know that feeling the sound of that action gives you? I, like most people, hate that sound.  I instantly feel like scrunching my shoulders up to my neck and closing my eyes.  I feel the exact same way when I am using an emery board to file my nails. This annoying sensation has a name: “grima” which is Spanish for disgust or uneasiness. This term basically describes any feeling of being displeased, annoyed, or dissatisfied someone or something.  It is a feeling that psychologists are starting to pay more attention to as it relates to our other emotions.  Emery boards are traditionally made with cardboard that has small grains of sand adhered to them. It is the sandpaper that I believe makes me filled with grima.  According to studies that are being done around the world, it is not just the feeling that we associate with certain things like nails on a chalkboard or by using emery boards

For Find Out Friday - Why is One Foot More Ticklish Than the Other?

As I sit here typing I can’t seem to stop thinking about my nails. Mainly that they REALLY need to get done. They are starting to chip and become unruly. As soon I as think about making an appointment my mind immediately returns to this question: “which of my feet will be ticklish this time?” Because I am a girl that needs her fingernails and toenails to match, I always get a pedicure whenever I get my nails done. And while this should be an activity I enjoy, it often feels like a chore, despite my going only once every three to four weeks. I know; #firstworldproblems.  Anyway, each and every time I get my toes done, as soon as they are done soaking in the bubbly water I wonder, which of my feet will be ticklish today?  Without fail one of them always seems to get the brunt of it and suddenly what was supposed to be a relaxing activity has made me all tense. So, is there a scientific reason for this?  According to most research, yes. While the answer doesn’t
