MESSAGE: Reading your message about Columbia and the dangers abounding
there, I can clearly recall the night I popped in to the casino in a major
hotel in Cali after a hard day ( I was a navigator competing in the 1996
'London - Mexico' car Rally). I wanted change to enable me to 'double'
my bet on cards, when a Rally official (quite drunk) of the Columbian Rally
scene offered to put up the cash. After the bet won and I tried to
return his cash, I found myself staring down the barrel of his revolver
as he screamed that the entire bet was now his! I looked towards the local
Manager for some sort of assistance and his response was to simply shrug
Yeah, I think I'd give it a wide berth. really lovely country but better
viewed on film!
NAME: Mike Bowen
MESSAGE: Those of you who knew him will be truly saddened to hear that
Jimmy Lloyd was killed recently in a car crash in Mexico. I can recall

son in the casino business that I knew of. Jimmy was a great guy and his
death will be mourned by so many. I'm quite sure there will be many
glasses raised to him during the coming weeks......See Ya Jimmy!

- Thailand/Cambodian Border
Anyone interested in what
is going on at the 7 or 8 casinos in Poipet along the border with Cambodia
will find this article of interest.
border casinos back in business
A couple of quotes:
gambling strip, with its well-watered and immaculately manicured lawns,
luxury hotels, air-conditioned shopping centers, massage parlors and brothels,
has seven casinos, with an eighth under construction"
That's OK but the second
quote refers to Cambodian's who have swelled the population to 100,000
in recent years.
"Many hope to find jobs in
the casinos, but end up being trafficked to neighboring Thailand as illegal
workers on the construction sites or sex workers in the brothels,"

1st - Share price rise
I found this today on Yahoo
Finance. ITOO up 39,900% in one day. The good news for shareholders is
that the stock that is listed on the "Pink Sheets" is now 4 cents. The
purchase was for a total of 4,000 shares. i2Corp.com if you follow Internet
gaming is a company that has a Method Patent for transmitting live casino
games to a remote location.
For those interested in seeing
if this spectacular rise can be repeated.
Now why doesn't that happen
to shares that I buy :( Ian

from them through your site.
"You think the best thing about working in a casino is the travel or
easy money but the most
beautiful thing is the wonderful people that you meet, and you let
them slip so easily from
your life. Don't slip away from mine again".
Alan for the message. While Gaming floor has been online I have managed
to find many old friends myself. Ian
