Hi, JP,

Wonder if that monkey is a sucker for an inside straight like me. Happy

As there was a lid on what either side could say, it's hard to judge who is right.

However, if the animals were kept as pets illegally, the agency did what it should.

There are strict laws about certain parrots, for instance. Proof must be provided that they were born and raised in the country of residence. This is due to the illegal poaching and smuggling from their native lands.

In my own neighborhood some folks were keeping cougars. Somehow they got a permit to breed them, but had to give them up as they did not conform to the acreage required. Also, the people were not really animal lovers --- they just thought it was macho. The wife was later indicted for embezzling from the Humane Society.

IMO, laws to protect animals are needed, and proper. They also protect the community.

(I'm a Texas Showdown fan, too!) Happy

of ruffed Marmosets.

Actually the monkey was a good poker player but when he had a really good hand he started to really wolf down the peanuts, which was a bit of a give-away.

in resources its the richest province in canada with its iron ore and nichel deposits in labrador being the largest in the world.Not much good to us with everything leaving here to be refined in rest of canada and they reap all the profits.Wonder if the usa would be interested in a new state rich in oil.

Hi Dave,

I would like to know if the owner taught the monkey how to "bluff".

Maybe the operation was closed down because the owner and the monkey were working together to cheat the other players.

"Monkey poker" (playing hands in the dark in the pot limit Hold'em game)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
