Ain't Life Grand?
Playing with the toys of the best technology, plus the artzy side knits for pleasure!

This is a video slot machine called MONOPOLY.
I won for a day on this machine.
It pays no coins!

The highlight of this game is to get three barking dogs for a bonus game.
I spent one whole day yelling out, "Here doggy doggy doggy! Here, doggy, doggy, doggy!"

In the high-falutin' technology play, the payout is a ticket with a barcode on it.
All you have to do is go to the other machine and swipe the barcode tatooed to your forehead, then load in the ticket, and VOILA!

I can only handle one at a time, basic knitting or basic slot machines. Great choice for technology, I think.

Knitting and playing a slotmachin at the same time? How many arms do you have, I wonder. Or can one hand work in dual mode? If so, it's way beyond technolgy. LoL.

Marvellous example. I might join one day.

Thanks for visiting my blog. We have the same debit-card system in Norway, combined with the Visa. We call it Bank Axxept or "Bank-Card". I thought it might be easier to understand for most people around the globe if I just wrote Visa, instead of Bank Axxept.

When we have poweroutages - but not for long, it happens from time to time, the Back-up is "manual Visa". You remember? Ghosh, it takes time to check out the goods.
Have a great Sunday.
