Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Is it next to the sports book where the poker dealing machines were? I haven't been there for a few years, but I remember playing stts there.

It is tucked in a corner, not too far from the sports book/sports bar area. But with a bit of slot area between them. Can't really spy the poker room from the sports area.

Silver Legacy's a nice room IIRC. Friendly dealers and locals, coffee and sometimes cake/snacks on the side.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

havent been to reno in decades since i sold my house there. eldorado was a dump then . is it the silver legacy now or is that a different casino.

whats the smoking situation. most cardrooms are non smoking but you are in smoke from the casino all the time is that true there. thats why i left gambling in reno.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

El Dorado improved and the three separate casinos; The Silver Legacy, El Dorado, and Circus Circus are now owned by the same corporation I think, and all three are linked together by large walkways, with shops, breweries, restaurants etc., all along and going from one to the other is very easy and comfortable.

Reno has changed dramatically from decades ago. It is not at all like it was in the 1980's or even the late 1990's.

Carson City has also changed very much and work is continuing. It is becoming hipster and californized. There is even a yoga place downtown now. I remember visiting Carson City in the later 1990's and it was dirty and dumpy. That has all changed. Especially in the last decade. Cactus Jack's is still there and the Nugget but many of the other older style casinos are gone or been replaced. Now there are antique stores and art dealers etc. Very upscale. People like Ray Zee are now not welcome or have to hide out at Cactus Jacks or be run out of town.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

yep i dont fit in anymore in those places. no yoga for me. i use to think reno was my spot. but the smoking and the cold winters made me think twice.
now with all the californians moving there to beat the high state taxes and the southern oregon people wanting to be like them it isnt livable no more.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Purchased a Hamilton viewmatic wristwatch. Chose it over the Jazzmaster model that I also liked. So after all these years I finally have a dazzling watch to impress the ladies.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

instead of wearing a watch put a bracelet of hundred dollar bills on your wrist. that will do more for your success.

Need rain badly. Some on the way but probably not enough. Need two weeks worth of stormy weather. Commercial and sport guys out on the ocean in droves for the Salmon. Nothing up the small rivers yet. Some fish up the Rogue as usual. Still need the lots of rain.

Attended the NBA Opener: Portland Blazers Vs. LA Lakers. It was a great game and close the whole way until about the last 2 minutes. The LeBron lead Lakers went down to ignominious defeat. Exactly what they deserved. Game also had a tribute to Paul Allen, owner of the Trailblazers, who just passed away. So it was extra sweet. In front of a packed house. Good Times in Portland.

Re: Zeno: Swinging the World by the Tail

Cut down the stupid pear tree that never produced any worthwhile fruit. The wood and branches will provide fuel for my book burning project.


Leaves from all my deciduous trees will be placed on the garden for mulch/fertilizer.


Nice weather on coast that makes hiking and beach walking very enjoyable. No real fishing, the small rivers near me are so low no boats can even drift them. And it is November. That is very rare indeed. Need about 2-3 weeks of steady rain to get the rivers up to a normal autumn/winter level.
