Can I write my diary like my blog? I took photos of my steak yesterday, but no other shots of people, the place, the event. There was a selfie by David as we left Vienna. There was a group photo at the end. There was that good talk with John Fenessey at the Restaurant over dinner. Continue reading

Then I dropped my dollar coin in the slot and still did not understand how it works. I saw I had made a win and kept playing until it was all used up. There were five buttons. The one on the left was to use one line at 2 cents. Then there was ten cents, twenty cents and I think fifty cents. I started off just using the left button, but it was too slow for me, so eventually I pressed the right one to get it over and done with.
