In Response to Horse Racing:
They are having a special prices day today at the horse races in Virginia. 25 CENTS(!) each buys your admission, a program, a hot dog, a drink, or a bag of chips. Now, THAT is affordable entertainment! You don't have to bet on the horses either. You can just watch. Plus they have free parking. I like to watch the horses race anyway. But I don't go to the actual track too often. The prices for food and drinks are usually a lot higher. I watched the Kentucky Derby on TV, but it is not the same as a live race.

We have a beautiful track nearby..Arlington Park. It is a beautiful place, the setting is gorgeous the grounds are beautiful and the horses are magnificent.
Now $0.25 is a deal you almost can't pass up!
If I go to the track I will bet a few dollars but will keep what I win and when the set amount is gone so am I. That set amount is never more than $20.00 (usually less) and I consider that my entertainment "fee".
