A MUST READ, A VERY NICE LETTER FROM A MEMBER

    I just want to share a very nice pm exchange today with forum member  , I just had to post thisHi BelgamoPlease don't get offended by this question. I was wondering when you have the contests that gives away real money to people like when you gave me money one time. Do you pay for that money out of your pocket? I ask not to be nosey, but I like this site and you make sure we all get free money so often that when you have your next contests for the month of November I would like to donate the money for it? just as a token of saying thank you for all that you do for this forum. I hope you don't get offended by this.HildamaeHi Hildamae,     I was floored by your generous offer and praise. I do pay out of my own pocket the cost for the forum and all contest, but that is me.I do appreciate the offer , but I can not accept it.I would though like to extend you an offer of designing or suggesting a contest for next month, if you would like .   I have shared your PM with all my mods and they also are blown away, as no one has ever offered to help with forum cost. I am just so happy that you enjoy the forum.                                                Thanks                    belgamo                       Hi Tony,I figured you covered all the costs, and my offer still stands I wish you would let me pay a month for you. You see I don't post much kinda a quiet person but you site has helped me win money when I needed it the most. I looked forward many of times to come here and find free money. I have been laid up for two years due to a workers comp injury and I became seriously depressed because I couldn't leave my house, I was almost wheel chair bound, and to be able to at least play at casinos helped, numbed my pain especially when I won some. Not a drinking person gambling helped in many ways... Never spent much to win, but always won when I needed it the most. Workers comp cut me off from everything, meds, medical help, and weekly wages.... So I finally won my settlement here earlier this month and I just wanted to contribute to something and since this site helped in many of ways. Just wanted to help you guys like your site helped me. out. I will think on a contest for next month.. but my offer still is out there if you ever get in a bind Tony and you need help one month please keep my offer in mind.Thank You for this site.Hildamae-- Edited by belgamo at 15:42, 2007-10-11

    Thank You misterep. it took a lot of work to get the settlement I got. Workers comp in wisconsin stinks don't like to bash things but they do not care about their employees here in this state.When I got injured my own co-teacher thought I was paralyzed thats what you get when you try and do the splits. I am a solid built woman grew up on the farm and ran track and feild.. hehe I could bench press 250lbs with my legs, so doing the splits well lets just say wasn't the best thing to happen.They cut corners at my daycare job and because of that I got seriously injured.I am an advicit for workers comp and I tell people no matter what don't give up do not let them win. They will try everything in their power to run you off and make you out to be hte most horrible person. Their IME doctor did that to me, said I was a swindel trying to just get their money I wasn't really injured at all. i also got so injured because i was to fat and had i not been fat i wouldn't have been injured. I mean really low degrading things. Wasn't injured hmm, tore my hamstring, quad muscle first, then after working 14 months they finally believe me when i told them something else was wrong, and low and behold i had a rare tear in my hip joint and I had a collapsed disc in my sping. Three surgeries later, hip surgery then back fusion and then hip surgery three weeks ago I think I am finally finally on the mend. Also find yourself a good attorney don't listen when people tell you gotta pay upfront, you don't they only get paid if they win for you. My attorney worked hard and i was glad that he got a good payment. They wanted me gone so bad they I was shocked they offered what they offered. They thought I was just gonna go away and I would of had to if it wasn't for some nice people I live with and the close to 10,000 dollars I won from intertops casino the only microgamming casino that lets me play hehe..Sorry so long of story just wanted to share some and be an advicit for workers comp never let someone else take your life way from you.THey did take a part of it away on me I can never be a police officer and that was the job I was pursuing when I took the daycare job. I had just graduated from college (i was an older graduate lol) and took the job til I could get into the police department and then I got injured. But instead of doing self pity I will just find something else to do and maybe think hmm maybe God didn't want me as a cop after all.Thanks for your warm receptions everyone... hilda

    moved me also, hey...how is it that we, (the last of the morally good folks) all ended up being here, in this forum.... I'm starting to think maybe we might be gathering to eventually serve a higher purpose. Gambling is a fun and exciting passtime.... but i pass a LOT of time doing so..... All of us together could do something profound to help others,...or even help ourselves. I will be pondering this one and asking Jesus if there is anything to all of this...

    Wow.....if anyone has ever read my bio I proudly state my faith and commitment to Christ, but now I can do that as a reply to a thread at a gambling forum....wow, He surely does work all things for the good of those that love him, doesn't he?  I feel so good to be a part of this forum, from the start I could feel a good vibration here, and I have prolly all the gaming forums bookmarked.  NONE of the other forums felt that way for me, I have maybe posted 3-5 times at all the other forums combined and felt that same disconnected, random and unknown/unwelcome feeling each time.  When I came here and each day when I come back home here after my checks at other forums it feels bright, honest and welcoming.  I say this from the truth of my heart and it is really special to me to have my truth validated by the letter Hildamae sent and all the heartfelt replies given her here in this thread.  When you act in a kind and caring way in all that you do it comes back to you that way.....Thanks Belgamo and Ahtram for creating a place for the kind and caring.....Thanks Hildamae for returning kindness back to Belgamo and giving us all the chance to share and feel in it as well.  Too all members here I will add this forum and it's members to my daily prayers and if any of you ever has a specific need, please pm me and let me know...you don't need a free chip to go straight to the Creator of our universe and I know without a shadow of a doubt, we all are winners in Him and there is never a cashout problem!Hildamae, May the Lord bless you and yours and keep you in good health and with happy hearts!!  Including your cat<img src="http://www.sparkimg.com/emoticons/aww.gif" alt="aww" title="aww" />!!Thanks everyone who posted on this thread....so glad I get to be a part of it.Michele~talkintacop.s. Hilda are you German?  I lived in Germany as a little girl and as an adult and last time I was there 1990-93  I had a dear friend named Hilda and recall that the name is a popular one in Germany.  p.s.s. I am very happy for you that a settlement was reached in your workcomp case.

    Michele,aka talkintaco,Yes I am german lol, got a temper like one to htink that is why I was so feisty with workers comp... Hilda is my nickname, real name is heidi, but perfer to go by hilda. I have never been to Germany,  my great grandparents came over here from germany and when I went to Ellis Island I think I found what our real name use to be not sure because both of them have passed on and I can't ask them. But I believe our last name got shortened or something. Some day I would like to go to germany hoping maybe down the road. The guy I live with was born and raised in germany for some time before he moved to the states but then moved back to germany for several years. He said it is beautiful. He likes me well for more then one reason but I guess I can cook as good as his grandmother he said and he said that was a very good compliment...thanks for your blessings and prayers, thanks again to everyone who gave such kind and loving remarks. I try very hard to be caring and like to pay it forward when good deeds get done for me. Ever see that Movie Paying it Forward not sure if thats the actual name but its about paying it forward when someone does something good for you made me cry though kinda sad..Hehe about my cat, she is something else trust me. my first cat I had to put to sleep he was only two years old he got a very bad urinary track infection and they said he was prone to them so I had to put him down. So that same day went and got bonnie and she was something else. Her nick name was goat when I got her and trust me she eats like one... Right now she is watching the babie fishes that are in my fish tank trying to figure out how to catch them lol.<img src="http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa182/talkintaco/257867gv13go5gpf.gif" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket" />THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE Hilda-- Edited by talkintaco at 19:19, 2007-10-12

    It is truly a hard life everywhere , psychologically I had a worse experience , some time ago I deposited a hundred dollars in the casino which I play (best casino according to my tens of thousands spend) then I won a 33 000 prize and got so drunk immediately that I spend back all the prize ..  Believe me its very hard not to remember that ridiculous mistake of mine , but after all the casino still gives me good winnings often and If you are more controlled in your gambling try not making the same mistake but keeping a good prize that you will really win sooner or later , I am serious , just have a try and you will see that chance really soon !!

    I have to say this member message was one of the most touching things I have read in a long time, especially considering this person is going through tough times along with the rest of us and still willing to give something back to the forum, this truley is a perfect example of what society needs to be like to pull us out of this difficult time. This brought a tear to my eye, my heart goes out.
