Talk about a blast from the past. I knew what it was. I remembered them from way back. Had to check to see the exact timeframe. 1985. Same year I arrived in the U.S. for ‘this stint’ — having previously come for one year in 1967.

Doctors and EMTs used them to send TEXTs! Kid you not. Early e-mail.

This TTY terminal probably still works if you knew the phone number of a computer that will support TTY communication.

Wow.

34-years old — or in that timeframe.

Wanted to share with you all.

Enjoy.

“Mohegan Sun” vs. “Foxwoods” — Keno.

I don’t play Keno (or for that matter any type of casino-related gambling) but have spent enough time in Las Vegas to know that it is very popular among some.

It is also BIG in Foxwoods. When we stayed at Foxwoods a few years ago, I think there was a Keno terminal in the room.

After Christmas 2016 we spent 4-nights at “Mohegan Sun” (Ct) from December 28, 2016 to January 1, 2017. And during that stay we made 2 trips to Foxwoods.

Given that I tend to notice such things I was struck that you could not escape Keno at Foxwoods. They have these giant displays like the one shown above. Then it occurred to me that I had not seen anything to do with Keno at Mohegan Sun.

Ahead of writing this I checked the handy-dandy, very fancy booklet I was given when I checked in at “Mohegan” with list of all the facilities and services. I can’t find a reference to Keno. I could be wrong, but I don’t think they had Keno at Mohegan.

So, just a heads up. IF Keno is important to YOU, better check with Mohegan Sun before you go there. I would hate for you to be disappointed.
