    No Gambling For Me.....

    I hate losing and never win anyway; I'd rather give my money away to someone who needs it than to some unscrupulous person who has too much already and isn't appreciative or ethical in its final use.

    Not Even For Matches

    It is not a religious thing or anything like that; I'm Catholic Catholics push that Bingo gambling and lottery tickets. Nor is it something I learned from my parents. They used to play penny-ante poker with friends when I was still a kid living at home. No, it is just a feeling I...

    Risk Aversion
