Costa Rica Gambling Sites Are Taking a Pounding

Wow, it seems like this year many sportsbook and poker websites that are based in Costa Rica are being shut down by the U.S. Government like beted and absolutepoker.

I'm not sure why the US decided that now is a good time to suddenly up its efforts to crack down on these sites other than the fact that they estimate the sportsbook income is worth $12 billion a year.

The funny thing about all of this is that more states are beginning to allow more gambling joints and sports betting a prime example is the State of Maryland.

Ha ha ha, I guess they dont like the competion from overseas.

Bought a House in Costa Rica

I know I have been silent of late but I had good reasons for that. I recently bought some real estate in Costa Rica and am now rennovating it.

I kind of got tired of my old condo which was fine but to be honest, it was just full of young people and it was just too loud living there which is why I decided to buy a house this time to get more peace and quite.

I am certainly not a party pooper as I enjoy the occasional drinking myself but I am also not getting any younger.
