The Craze for Bingo Daubers continues!

Friday, March 7th, 2014

The Craze for Bingo Daubers continues! You would have heard about people collecting weird stuff! Well, people around have their own choice when it comes to collecting things. I’ve heard about people collecting old chocolate wrappers, antique hand cuffs, antique surgical instruments, shoes and a lot more. However, until late, I came across this person – Gilbert Ellis who resides in Michigan City Indiana who has a collection of 2100 daubers. In the ancient days, bingo play was in quite a simpler form. People played games with corn, beans and likely stuff to mark out the numbers on their bingo tickets. In the ancient time, bingo tickets were printed on heavy stocks that were reusable.

As on today, bingo tickets are printed on thin paper that is disposable too. And, when these disposable bingo tickets became the norm, the bingo daubers entered into its golden era. As on today, numbers on bingo tickets are selected in accordance with the random number generator. Players use daubers to mark their cards and the daubers are filled with see through ink. The first daubers were quite basic and it was just a filled tube without much decorations. As on today, daubers are quite fancy in nature with too many themes.

This avid bingo player, Michigan City Indiana has quite a big collection of daubers. Ellis’s wife Jeannie is known for playing even more than her husband. In a recent interview, Ellis told the reporters that there have been numerous occasions such as Christmas, Valentine, St. Patrick’s Day and for many such related occasions, Ellis has a bingo dauber to match. Ellis is a retired inspector from a steel firm. And after retirement, it has got all the more easy to give more time for his dauber collection. Before, including any dauber to his collection, he ensures to empty the ink else it would leak.

In the year 2012, Gilbert and Jeannie celebrated their 45th anniversary. Jeannie told the reporters that they had been playing bingo for quite long. Ellis has even planned to display his collection at an American Legion Post. In the current situation of online bingo, players can still get to see colourful daubers around the bingo halls. There are dozens of websites around the world that even sell these extensive daubers. Players like this feature as it enables them to focus on conversations at the chat rooms. Yes, in spite of the internet bingo gaming around, there is still a demand for these daubers. Sounds nice, that even though internet bingo is taking over – demand for daubers is still there!

Stay Beautiful and Live Longer with One Pomegranate a DayThe first time when I saw the fruit pomegranate, it looked pretty strange to me unless I cut open one to see how it would be? And, inside the fruit looks remarkably beautiful with deep red seeds embedded and with a taste that left me an absolutely enamored state. The fruit is just not looks good or tastes good, but also is one of the most highly nutritious foods to consume.

To begin with, pomegranates are a high source of anti-oxidants. In fact, they are one of the most powerful anti-oxidant among all fruits. Anti-oxidants help in eliminating the radicals that can damage the body’s cells and genetic material that promote diseases. Thus, pomegranates are highly recommended to be taken for protecting the body against ill health. The juice is also considered to be more effective than grape juice and red wine too. Also, the pomegranate extract can be applied on the skin in the form of oil. Various anti-oxidants in pomegranate oil like phytonutrients and flavonoids help to counter the effects of radicals and environment hazards. It is one of the most essential products that a lady can actually add to their beauty regime to get fresh, beautiful and glowing skin.

The fruit constitutes a range of nutrients that help to boost the level of oxygen in the heart required for proper cardiovascular functions. Furthermore, the presence of vitamin C boosts the working of the immune system and defends the body against various diseases. Pomegranates also contain vitamin B5 and B9 that is rarely found in other fruits. The B vitamins help the body to convert food into energy, especially vitamin B5 that is also known as pantothenic acid helps in the regulation of the nervous system. The phytonutrients in pomegranate help to inhibit hormones associated with depression. Also, a good amount of vitamin K is present that is required for blood clotting and also for healthy bones and strong teeth.

The fruit contains over 45% of an adult’s recommended daily allowance of dietary fiber. Seeds of pomegranates are a rich source of fiber, therefore it is highly recommended to have the fruit. The pomegranate seeds also constitute in giving a smooth and clean digestive process plus a healthier body weight.

Is the Emotional Tide sinking you down?

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Is the Emotional Tide sinking you downEmotional disturbances are a common problem these days. In the world that we live in today, each one of us at some time or the other have to experience some kind of an emotional abuse. That could be related to a number of things, for e.g. job, kids, career, relationship, family and much more. There are days, when we feel all our emotions have been drained out and you just do not feel like do anything and wish to stay all by yourself. And, the worst thing is that you cannot make out what actually went wrong! You just want to be left alone and not be bothered by anyone. Some people have the ability to come over it, while some find it really difficult to escape from such situations and they simply go on to hibernate in their shells.

 Gradually, you just go on sinking below in this emotional tide and things just move on to get worse and bigger. Just when you are sinking inside the water and you have to fight against the water and force yourself out of it. Similar is the case when you are emotionally disturbed. The more you live in it, the more you seem to drown in it. Thus, we have to learn to fight back and come out of such situations.

A few tips to help you come out of it:

  • Positivity: Be it any situation that you are experiencing, expect a positive outcome. If you live with negative feelings then it is difficult for you to come out of such situations. Redirect your thoughts on positive things.
  • Talk about it: In such situations, you should not shut yourself off from the world. You should vent your emotions to someone you can trust on. Not all can you trust, therefore you should look out for a person with a positive mind who can actually make your feel better. That could be your spouse, Mother, counselor, best friend or even a religious leader.
  • Talk to yourself: Dedicate few hours to yourself and express your feelings by writing down about the situation you are in. You can write things that you are planning to do to resolve the situation you are in.
  • Do something: Do not confide yourself too much and simply lie in the couch doing nothing. Jump out of the bed and go on to try something. Go out and meet out your friends. Plan a movie or a outing. Join in for some voluntary work as these things will get a lot of positivity in you and redirect your energy and time for something good.
  • Exercise: There is nothing better than doing a bit of exercise that can help you to come over your emotional disturbances as they help you to release your stress. A good walk/ run or something like boxing can help you get rid of your frustration.

Well, now what you have got to say? Are, you ready to break off the bad habits and love the body you are in and take care of it. Do not let the tide drown you but you fight back with the tide. Good Luck to all!

How to find out if you are a shopaholic?
