I cooked chili omelets this morning for breakfast. The eggs were new and fresh, the chili that went in the omelets was leftover from Saturday night's supper.
After breakfast, I decided to whip up some tuna salad for sandwiches - totally forgetting we were going to Jam Rock for bingo later on.
Last night I had read a tip, I think on Reddit, but it could have been Facebook, that if you put ½ teaspoon baking soda in the water as you boil eggs, the shells become very easy to separate from the eggs. By Jove, it worked. Not one hundred percent, but significantly better than the past few times I've done hard-boiled eggs.
The reason I mentioned eggs is that they were part of the ingredients for the tuna salad, four of them, along with half an onion, a dozen dill pickle slices, two sliced stalks of celery, a healthy dose of mustard, two cans of tuna in agua - drained, and, of course Hellman's Mayonnaise. Mix it all together, slap some between two slices of bread, add some chips of your choice, and you've got lunch. We'll have that tomorrow.
Sundays at Casa Winjama is laundry day. So, I fired up the trusty old wringer washer and tubs - Hah! My mom used a Westinghouse wringer washer until I left home to go in the Navy. She wasn't real keen on newer technology. Ok, I loaded the washer and pressed 'Start.'

It's been a while since we've had burgers there, so Dianna and I splurged and each had a bacon cheese burger with fries. Yummers.

Here you see Mike, of Mike and Terri, who run the game, selling Bingo cards to JamRock patrons, in this photo, it's members of an Orange Walk motorcycle club.
Cards usually go for three for $5.00 BZD. Three games played and it's time to get new cards. The money from card sales makes up the jackpot for each game, minus a bit for overhead.

Incidentally, the game of Bingo can trace its roots to the Arabian Peninsula around the 1500's. It passed on to Europe and eventually to the new world, well the British colonies, I guess.
Around 1929, the game became formalized as Bingo, having been known up to then as Beano and other variations. Several companies began marketing it, along with copies of the rules and it reached the form, more or less, that we know today.
