Redhead of the Month - April - Old School Redhead

April Redhead 430x234
Your Redhead of the Month for the month of April is a bit of a throwback to the 80's and early 90's.   Back to a time when women had shape and didn't have to look anorexic in order to be considered beautiful.   Back when the term T&A stood for something other than Thompson and Associates.   This is the type of woman that you dreamed would fall on your plate but most of you were too chicken to go after.

Atomic Bomb
I am not a conspiracy theorist. However, I am a realist. For years now, online poker sites have been finding a way to circumvent the UIGEA and still provide payments to online poker players.   Anyone with any common sense knew that the sites were playing with fire.
