    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Funny stuff! I do believe KB has already cracked that one, although I can't recall whether he was the original author. KB?

    Def for Classic Post anyway - and $5 HCDs for GG for making me giggle again.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    No. It's all good. Planned many trips to the toilet block. Same winning idea as laast week. Besides, I'm looking gorgeous today.

    Thanks Garvin. V. informative.

    Congrats to Jacob Edwards (picket fence) & Yi (aged 9). Both played well and both absolute gentlemen.

    And here's one for the gossip column: Jacob married Regina Grenfell on Saturday. Wishing them many happy years together with my very best wishes. A very lovely couple indeed!

    I made him up to inflate our tournament and make it look successful

    He is from South Africa and is out here for a couple of months for study.

    I could not find a fide rating for him, but he says that he has a rating of about 1950 in South Africa. Not sure how that translates to our rating but Pat thinks that it is roughly accurate from watching him play.
