Catch The Wind – Donovan

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty
I want to be in the warm hold of your loving mind
To feel you all around me and to take your hand along the sand
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

When sundown pales the sky
I want to hide a while
Behind your smile
And everywhere I’d look, your eyes I’d find

For me to love you now
Would be the sweetest thing
T’would make me sing
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee
dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee dee

When rain has hung the leaves with tears
I want you near
To kill my fears
To help me to leave all my blues behind

For standing in your heart
Is where I want to be
And long to be
Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

Ah, but I may as well try and catch the wind

David Lee…a reminder…(thank you Gus Johnson)

Liar’s Poker

Definition from Wikipedia:

Liar’s poker is a bar game that combines statistical reasoning with bluffing, and is played with the eight-digit serial number on a dollar bill. Normally the game is played with a stack of random bills obtained from the cash register.

The object is to make the highest bid of a number that does not exceed the combined total held by all the players. The numbers are usually ranked in the following order: 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0(10)and 1(Ace). If the first player bids three 6’s, he is predicting there are at least three 6’s among all the players, including himself. The next player can bid a higher number at that level (three 7’s), any number at a higher level (four 5’s) or challenge. The end of the game is reached when a player makes a bid that is challenged all around. If the bid is successful, he wins a dollar from each of the other players, but if the bid is unsuccessful, he loses a dollar to each of the other players.
