THEMES OF HEROISM: In convergence of name and theme, Carnival Cruise Lines’ new Carnival Valor explores heroes and heroism, real and imagined, as well as heroic eras and feats, heavy on Americana. The red, white and blue lighted lobby dome’s bas-relief panels depict 10 U.S. destinations — including Miami, Chicago, San Francisco, New Orleans and the Grand Canyon. One Small Step Dance Club celebrates Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon, with a multicolored volcano effect. Lindy Hop Piano Bar honors aviator Charles Lindberg, first to solo across the Atlantic, with a model of his Spirit of St. Louis. Scarlett’s supper club has a mural of GWTW’s heroine dancing with Rhett Butler. In a tribute to women manning factories during WWII, Rosie’s restaurant hails “Rosie the Riveter.” Formal dining rooms honor George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, with candle-like lighting from dark-wood chandeliers. Restaurant annexes are named for U.S. Navy officer John Paul Jones and Betsy Ross, seamstress of the continental flag. Bronx Sports Bar celebrates Yankee stadium with bunting, and tabletops embedded with pieces of a number-four uniform, like that of Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig. The Caboose game room / teen club celebrates Casey Jones of American literary lore with an electric train running around the bar. Heroes from elsewhere in Ivanhoe Show Lounge recall Sir Walter Scott’s tale, with knights in armor backed by medieval-style tapestry. Artwork in Winston’s, a cigar bar named after the British Prime Minister, reflects Churchill’s maritime interests. Shogun Club casino’s murals and suits of samurai armor simulate a medieval palace in Kyoto. Paris Hot Jazz Club, a French-style cabaret, pays homage to chanteuse Josephine Baker, the expatriate American battling racial bias in the U.S. Iliad Library transports guests to Homer’s Ilium, with murals themed from Greek vases. Jeanne’s Wine Bar recalls Joan of Arc, and the Togo Sushi Bar is named after the Japanese admiral. On Dec. 19, seven-day sailings start from the Port of Miami, alternating eastern and western Caribbean routes.

Video slots on the web has a fan club of there own, people just can’t get enough. Even when news slots are launched by the different software developers they get a standing ovation and are attacked with an intensity of a wolf mother protecting her cubs. It is like the New Years sale in Bond street where the entire population of crazy housewife’s fight over every garment and will draw blood if need be.

Lucky us the since the slots are online there is no such thing as a queue and you can play when you want. You don’t even have to get dressed.

Not that this has any relevance to who plays slots and who don’t. There is clearly according to the latest polls more women playing slots then men. Men seem to drift towards the poker and table games. But here is something us men have to watch out for, they are coming. And they are also coming in swarms.

And since we men can not do more then one thing at a time (at least that is what the women say) we are in trouble. Take Blackjack, they should be better at handling two and three hands then us. Texas Hold’em is up for grabs because of the pace and many factors in the game. So when you are playing against a women you might want to hold on to your chips (and maybe your hart as well) she could end up owning both of them. Women know we are simple beings, and do have this factor over us when playing face to face. All men are suckers to a nice smile, so in all fairness any poker game that has both men and women in it should be played online.

At least you will not be distracted by that nice perfume drifting in from the women next to you. It is so faint but a man has certain instincts and will try to get a good sniff. So leaning in (ever so careful) I still get booted from a game for trying to look at other peoples cards. And I had a straight lined up. Even the big smile I got from the women next to me did not really soften the blow of getting booted. At least the dealer understood me and just told me to take a break for a while. That is my 2 cents worth on the topic of women and gambling.

Signing off for now and heading towards the slots, someone told me there is a good chance of meeting women there. At least that is what they tell me on http://www.streetslots.com
