Two New Chess Tourneys

Replacing the NFL, NBA and ESPN has been easy for me. Rather than subject myself to the onslaught of political propaganda disguised as professional sports by athletes, coaches, team and league owners, and broadcasters I’ve decided to spend less time with them and much more time on the one sport I still actively play: correspondence chess (cc).

Yesterday I signed up for two new cc tournaments at Scheming Mind, the correspondence chess club where I’ve played most of my games for the past decade and a half.

Retreating into the Man-Cave

So this morning Sylvia told me she was bringing one of her lady friends over to the house this afternoon and for a few hours on Sunday to do some heavy duty cleaning. Having this joint cleaned up will be a very welcome change, but there’s no way I could have any peace of mind out in the parts of the house where they’ll be working.

So, it is my intention to lock myself into my sanctum sanctorum, my man-cave (my home office) while that house work by those ladies is in progress.
