Petre far preferred non-gambling tames like “tables” (backgammon), or shove ha’penny, which he played with his family on a 14 foot shovelboard. Kensington Publishing, 2010) ISBN-10: 0758241992/ISBN-13: 978-0758241993
Workers’ pay was not the whole story, though. For instance, in June 1554, while attending Queen Mary at court, Petre had with him two gowns, one of them faced with velvet satin and fringed with silk, and two coats of velvet, damask and lace.

In addition, the Ingatestone accounts showed payments to morris dancers, Gylder the Tumbler, who came twice, and three Chelmsford minstrels who entertained the family at Christmas in 1539.
Self-entertainment in sports or art provided the chief leisure activity for the gentry like the Petre family, with music comprising the major part of it.
For Sir William, this was something approaching high living, but this was an occasion of some importance. Furthermore, Mary bestowed the appointment on Petre at Ingatestone Hall, an unusual honor.
He nevertheless commended himself to her when she became Queen, for she appointed him her

There were occasions, though, when professional entertainers visited Ingatestone. In addition to wages and salaries, perquisites were plentiful.

Queen Mary was awaiting with some impatience, the arrival of her bridegroom, Prince Philip of Spain.
That day, there were nearly fifty people to be entertained to dinner – the meal taken at noon – and supper, which was eaten at about six in the evening. Men of affairs like Petre wore flat, shallow brimmed hats and long black damask gowns, sometimes with a hint of lace to relieve the sobriety.

Sixteen children, Sir William and his wife and the population of guests provided a deal of work for the Ingatestone servants and a fairly large wage bill to be paid.
Not for Sir William the close-fitting colored hose, slashed doublets and ruffled shirts sported by gadabout courtiers. Among them were bands of wandering minstrels, tumblers, jugglers, touring players and “waits” or small wind orchestras.
Both Petre and his royal guest were keen card players, but of the two of them, he was the more cautious. This ability was, in fact, one of the marks of gentility in the 16th century.
Attendance at court could, however, tempt Petre into something more luxurious. 20 (Chigwell, Essex, UK: Essex Education Committee,1962 ASIN: B0014B27QO
Sir William Petre (1505?-1572) [Sir William Peter; Tudor Biographies]

Yet another attempt is being made under the Gold Dome to bring pari-mutuel wagering to Georgia.
This time Sen. Brandon Beach (R-Alpharetta) is joining the long battle with Rep. Harry Geisinger (R-Roswell) in sponsoring a constitutional amendment that would open the door for betting on horse racing in the state.
“We’re trying to bring an industry to Georgia that’s good for hay farmers down in south Georgia, good for farms here, and just good for business,” he tells WSB’s Sandra Parrish.
Beach says the track would be privately funded and the proceeds would go support education.
He says 87 percent of the monies that are wagered at tracks around the country come from out of state.
“So we’ll be having our education funded from people from New York, Kentucky, Florida… wherever,” says Beach.
The idea of pari-mutuel betting has been pushed by Geisinger for the past seven years and has never reached the House floor for a debate.
Beach is hoping for at least a floor debate, but Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle says that remains to be seen.
“Ultimately my sense is the Senate as a whole has been debating the issue and it doesn’t appear right now that there’s an overwhelming support for it,” he says.
But Cagle does promise a fair hearing on the measure as it moves forward.
“We showed a lot of toughness coming back from those two deficits.”
Kam Chancellor bobbed his head in celebration as he crossed the goal line on his game-clinching 90-yard interception return.
Seattle will play the winner of Sunday’s NFC Divisional Playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys in next Sunday’s conference title game at CenturyLink Field.
Brady finished 33-of-50 for 367 yards and three touchdowns, with his 50th and final toss being a go-ahead 23-yard strike to Brandon LaFell with just over five minutes remaining, a pass that was prettier than Tom Terrific’s supermodel wife.
Flacco was 28-for-44 for 292 yards tossed a career postseason-best four touchdowns but his second interception of the game virtually ended Baltimore’s chances with 1:39 left to play.
It was also Brady’s 46th TD pass in the playoffs, breaking Joe Montana’s all- time record.
The University of Delaware product, who has been dubbed “January Joe” by some and “Joe Cool” by others for his unflappable demeanor in big spots, only went 11 passes before being picked again, this time by Duron Harmon in the end zone as Flacco misread a single-high safety as he went deep down the left side for Torrey Smith.
The Seattle Seahawks’ resurgent defense has them thinking repeat.
Already the winningest postseason signal caller in NFL lore coming in, Brady was a hair better than Flacco, the most successful playoff QB since 2008 and a player that had already beaten the Pats in January at Gillette Stadium on two different occasions.
In one of the greatest postseason games in recent memory, the New England Patriots’ only lead was the final score as Tom Brady and Co. outdueled Joe Flacco and a battle-tested Baltimore Ravens team, 35-31, to reach their fourth consecutive AFC Championship Game..
Russell Wilson tossed three touchdown passes and the Seahawks punched their ticket into the NFC Championship Game with a 31-17 NFC Divisional Playoff victory over the Carolina Panthers on Saturday night.
Another dominating second half performance has them one step closer.
In doing so the Patriots became the only team in NFL postseason history to fight back from a pair of two-touchdown deficits to win.
Flacco had thrown 197 passes and 17 TDs between postseason interceptions, the second longest streak in history, when Devin McCourty finally figured him out in the third quarter.
“I don’t think we played as well as we would’ve liked,” said Brady, who completed eight of nine passes for 72 yards on the game-winning drive
The Internet is prime with many different online gaming opportunities for the fun-loving, adventurous gamer. And the best thing is that it doesn’t matter which language is your primary one: English, German, or Italian, there is something for everyone. One of the most increasingly popular places to get involved in casino games is in the Spanish online casinos, which are taking off in popularity thanks in part to the growing Hispanic population. Here are five reasons you should play:
1. You choose how long to play. At traditional brick-and-mortar casinos, you may feel pressure from the outside. Crowded tables, cramped machines, and clashed personalities are always big negatives of the physical location. In Spanish online casinos, you can enjoy playing your games in your language. No communication barriers will stand in your way, nor will any of the traditional distractions. You will have the run of the tables or slots for as long as you so desire.
2. You decide the risks. Walk into any regular casino and you will be faced immediately with the reality of risk. No casino in the world is in business for the fun of it. They are moneymaking ventures, and that means they can’t make any by allowing you to set the terms. By playing Spanish online casinos, you can start as small as you would like – even free if you want – and build up your capacity for risk from there.
3. You pick the game of your choice. Spanish online casinos can have nearly 200 different games at your disposal, varying from baccarat to blackjack to poker. Anything you can play in a physical casino you can play in an online casino. But unlike the big casinos, you don’t have to wait in line before getting down to the fun part – playing and winning!
4. You benefit from the bonus opportunities. Many Spanish online casinos are not just places where you can go to get a large sampling of the hottest casino games. They are not simply there for you to build your skills and make new friends. They are not there just so you can better pass the time. Spanish online casinos often give you the gamer the opportunity to reduce your risk even further and play on someone else’s money. With bonus codes, the house allows you to play on either a flat fee or a percentage of your deposit. That means you stay in the game longer, and increase your chances of walking away a winner.
5. You hone your skills and become a better player. With hundreds of games to choose from, there are tons of chances for you to learn the lay of the land, so to speak, and become a better player. The more you play, the more comfortable you will grow with your surroundings. And the more comfortable you are, the more likely you will make an impact on the high roller casinos.
It doesn’t matter if Spanish is your primary language or secondary, Spanish online casinos are the places where you can grow and mature as a gamer.
