The last book keeping item, I have added a Web Camera to Life Of DUG, the camera will either show live shots of our village (out side) or when I am playing poker it will show me playing poker. I just hope the picture is blurry enough not to show my cards. I hope everybody enjoys.

It was great to be home for a full week and reacquaint myself with all the villagers. I got a lot of questions about my stay in America. From how Obama was running the United States, I had to remind everybody he is not the president yet, to the financial crisis.  It is funny how everybody cares about the United States even people in my little village. The United States has no material effect on our village and I doubt ever could, but people seem to care.

I had one meeting with the elders about our situation with the environment and the financial health of our village. As I had mentioned we are going to have a great crop this year and I believe will be able to sell our pineapples to other villages. The elders are already taking about what they might spend the money on. I have their ear since I was the one that bought the elephant dung that has allowed for such a great crop. They are going to allow me to develop a long term plan for the village, one that both will make sure we are healthy finically and environmentally. They did remind me my diesel generator has the biggest carbon foot print in the village.  I will keep everybody posted as my plans move forward.

Poker was good this week I continue to keep the quantity of my play low and my quality high. I played 10.7 hours just an hour more then last week, with a total of 970 hands about 90 hands an hour. I won $82.00 which works out to almost $11.00 an hour. Below are my best and worst hands of the week. As you can see the best hand was only best, because the Poker Gods paid me off.  I hit 53,000 hands played for the year this week.

DUG: checks    I am going to check raise.
bw07507: bets $10    What I would expect no matter what the flop was.
