New Casino Sites Bonuses

Friday, January 18, 2019
Because of the huge number of online casinos offered in the world today, many of the new casinos have had to up the ante and start offering a little something extra to beat out the competition and become successful. New casino sites such those are listed here need to build up a good base of customers or else they will never truly be able to succeed.

How do they do this? By giving bonuses for new signups. Sometimes you need a special bonus code to get the full benefit, but other times just signing up is enough! These casinos really want new accounts to be made on their sites, so they’re willing to offer a lot of great stuff to get you to join up and deposit. Here you can find more infos about the newest casino brands.


Free spins Slot machines are some of the most popular online casino games today. Because of this, many new casino sites will offer you a certain number of free spins on a particular slot game. Free spins mean that you can win cash prizes without actually putting any of your own money on the line.

Deposit match When you join up, you might be offered a match on your deposit. Many casinos put a limit on how much they will give you, but others offer a 100% match without any limits! You can use this money on the site to play any casino games you want and to try your luck on winning big.

Cash welcome bonuses When those other two incentives aren’t quite enough, casinos might offer a straight cash bonus that is added to your account with your deposit. Some sites don’t even require a deposit for this type of bonus and are willing to let you try out their site with the casinos own cash bonus money before you commit to depositing your own money.

I have been fooling around with the inner workings of this blog for a day and a half. My first effort was to get the archives to show up. In he course of foling with the template, I lost all connection to my server and could no longer ftp anything from blogger to bronzefrogs. This had to do with the path settings.
AFter much tweaking, reading the help files and blog discussions, I got some advice from my web host on the correct path. That fixed the uploading to bronzefrogs. But I still cant get the archives right.

If you click the link to archives on this page (I finally got the link to work!), it takes you to a drab unstyled page with some javascript showing ('document write...'). I do not know why it doesnt link to the page I put on my server by the name of "archive.html" which has a style and no longer includes the javascript. Anyway, style aside, when you click on one of those archive links, you get a Page Not Found error; Blogger is not sending my archive files to that location, and nothing I tell it will convince it to.


Do we really need archives??????

It's a chill gray day, of the sort I associate with November. The seasons are a mess this year!

Saturday, February 09, 2002

Early Friday morning (2-8-02) when I stuck my head out the door to let out the cats, I sniffed the air, and it smelled like spring. I heard a robin trilling, and thought Spring !! Then I thought Wait, wait, it's only February 8! Granted, it has been a mild winter so far; but we will surely get a whopper or two in the second half of February and early March.

I dunno. I truly hope that robin makes it through February and March without having to contend with a blizzard.

The daffodils are coming up, too.

Saturday, February 02, 2002



Don't you love that date? When I stuck my head out the door this morning a little while before dawn, it seemed bitterly cold; I suppose it was about 30 degrees F. I had to postpone my walk 'til the sun came up and the ground thawed a little. I am not used to such chillsome weather. Now, at nearly 10 a.m. the sun is out. I hope that dang groundhog looked out early in the day so as to not see the shadow.

I read somewhere recently that our story about the groundhog came from German settlers in Pennsylvania; the original critter in the old country was a badger. Possibly the badger was better at foretelling the weather than the groundhog, which, I have read, is correct less than 1/3 of the time.

February 2 is also Candelmas, a day associate with the birth of spring lambs, and the crossroad between winter and spring. An old poem contains the same forecast as Groundhog day:

If Candlemas be fair and bright
Come, winter, have another flight
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Go, winter, and come not again

February 2 is also associated in Ireland with Brigid, the Celtic goddess of brides and birth among other things. Later the Roman Catholic Church adopted Brigid and transformed Brigid's nigth into the purification of St. Mary (which came 40 days after the birth of Jesus). Both occasions involved lighting fires or candles. The Celts burnt the evergreen boughs they had kept in the house for the dark days and cleaned up the fallen needles. Hence Spring Cleaning.

Everything is connected.

So far [fingers crossed] this has been an uncommonly mild winter. We have had only a few inches of snow that lasted only a few days. Often the temperature has been above freezing. Forty degrees may not seem all that wonderful to someone who lives in Florida or even Virginia, but to a lifelong Northeasterner, it's delightful! We get the azalea without the drawl!

IF this keeps up, I will wish I had a greenhouse like arrangement or at least a coldframe in which I could keep going an herb garden and be starting plants I do not have room for in my apartment.

I shouldnt hope for it, though. Im sure winter is not gone, but merely late. I lived in this mild river valley for two decades before I ever saw a March snowstorm. February snowstorms were common and often severe; snow in March was always a few flakes, a light dusting on the lawn and gone by afternoon. About four years ago, we had a blizzard in mid-March that astonished me and left me with a sore sholder from shovelling snow two feet deep away from my car. My shoulder has recovered, but I havent forgotten.

I'm afraid winter isn't milder, just later incoming.

On the other hand, if Virginia winters are moving North, I should consider moving North as well. Soon Nova Scotia will begin to seem habitable.

I forget if I mentioned previously that this blog was listed as blog of the day on Oct. 26, 2001. The link shows the entire list for the year 2001. Just look down and you will see "outside in the garden" listed for 10-26-01. I'm proud. And I have no idea how that happened, either. How did they even know about me??

I need a good space for indoor gardening. Of course I have some houseplants near every window that could accommodate them. But I need a spot with good light where I can start seedlings, do cuttings, etc. A BIG space. I am thinking of clearing away some stuff in front ofmy study window - if only I can figure out where to put it - and setting up a table or some shelves there. Except that it's far from the kitchen (and water) it would be a good place. Good light in winter, facing southeast, so it gets the morning and noonday and early afternoon sun.

This is probably the worst time of year. Everything outside looks barren and brown. There is no snow and the backyard does not have an elegant structure to it.

Yesterday I purchased a wall calendar at the Willimantic Food Co-op that shows scenes of Japanese gardens in the U.S. -- 3 or 4 of them on the west coast out of reach. But one is in Brooklyn NY and I would love to go there and see it.

A well structured garden looks enticing at any time of year because good bones, so to speak, make all the difference.

Ok the truth can be told: I was Alison's secret Santa. Now she has her gift and knows it's me, so the need for subterfuge os over. She has a nice site- you should go look at it.

I got a gift from my secret santa today. No email address though! hm.

My cool site of the week award goes to Alison, partly because I like her name. This is a new thing I am starting, where I pick a name that has meaning for me (Alison was my favorite aunt, a serene woman who eschewed the material) and do a search on it.
