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 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 - How Do You Milk An Almond?

Despite my affinity for cheese and other dairy products, occasionally (actually a few times a week) I like to go dairy-free.  During those times I rely heavily on my favorite brand of almond milk, as seen in the picture above.  Though I know there is no dairy in this product, I constantly wonder: “how does one milk an almond”? Logically I am aware that no actually “milking” is taking place.  I also know that almond milk can be made at home, although I have zero interest in attempting to make it despite my love of spending time in my kitchen. So, what is the actual process?  How long does it take?  When / where / who was the first to successful develop this product? When talking about this kind of “milk” what we are really talking about is plant juices that resemble and can be used in the same ways as dairy milk. Plant like juice has been described as milk since about 1200 A.D. The first mentions can be found in a Baghdadi cookbook in the thirteenth

For a Doughnut Worthy of Food Network Glory: “Dun-Well Doughnuts”

All because I wanted a Boston creme doughnut. That is how this blog truly began. It was Father’s Day weekend and although I was initially thinking of myself, I knew my father wouldn’t mind having a sweet treat for dessert. Brooklyn is synonymous with great pizza, bread, and of course bagels. But it also has many great bakeries producing some of the most delicious doughnuts you have ever tasted. Just to name a few, there is: Doughnut Plant , Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop and Dough .   On the day of my craving, I did what any of us do countless times a day - I opened Google. When I Googled “best Boston creme doughnuts in Brooklyn” Dun-Well Doughnuts appeared high on that list. Intrigued I researched it further and learned that it had won the Canadian  Food Network’s contest called “Donut Showdown” in 2013. That was enough information for me to decide to visit the very next day.  Dun-Well Doughnuts was opened by Dan Dunbar and Christopher Hollowell in December 2011. Despite
