|Douge2 wins four - in a row. It's good to be a winner at NPP.|
Sorry for the delay writing, but Faldo has been waiting for PokerStars to update the standings.
It has not happened yet - as of this writing.
But Douge2's accomplishment must be noted and recorded for posterity! This was his 22nd win in NPP history and moves him up the Walk of Fame!
Nice job Douge2!
2nd - Mikeniks-Faldo
3rd - Tomservo2
4th - Wingsfancurt
5th - Derf-63
6th - Absea98
It will be tough but we can still catch him - after all there are eight rounds remaining. So see you all Tuesday to see if we can stop the Douge2 express!
Here is an excerpt from a 1950's Home Economics textbook. Faldo says this should be a required course for senior college coeds today - as today's students are four or more years behind the students of the 1950's in today's classrooms.
1. Have dinner ready when your husband gets home. And make it delicious. This is a sly way of letting him know you were thinking of him all day. A man is usually hungry when he gets home and the warm aroma of a good meal is the welcome he deserves.
2. Prpare yourself. Take 15 minutes to rest before he walks in. Touch up your make up and put a ribbon in your hair.
3. Clear away clutter. Take a last minute tour of the main house and make sure things look in order. Your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest.
4. Prepare the children. Wash their hands and faces, comb their hair and if necessary - their clothes. He will want to hug his little treasures so have them look the part.
5. Minimize all noise. Turn off the washer, dryer, dishwasher or vacuum. Let the children know to greet their father warmly - but no yelling or horseplay.
6. Listen to him. You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him speak first. Once he has aired his frustrations, he will ask how your day was - then that is the signal it is your turn.
7. Make the evening his. During the work week, understand his world is a lot of strain and pressure. His home must be a place of rest during the week.
8. Have a warm or cold drink ready for him when he walks in the door.
9. Always speak in a low, soft, soothing, pleasant feminine voice to allow him to relax and unwind.
10. Some don'ts: Don't greet him with complaints and don't complain if he is late for dinner.
11. After dinner have him relax in his favorite chair or suggest he lie down on the couch. Arrange his pillow and offer to remove his shoes.
12, The goal is to make your home a place of peace and order where your husband can renew himself in body and spirit.
Not a bad list - a little incomplete in Faldo's opinion. But after all the author was not Faldo, so errors were unavoidable.
