When I first moved to Italy almost 50 years ago, the government had a monopoly on cigarettes and tobacco, matches and lighters, salt and finally, playing cards. There was a government stamp on the Ace of Coins and a deck cost probably ten times its real value. Of course a lot of smuggling went on but if you were caught with an unstamped deck of cards, there was hell to pay.

Rather than cracking down on child prostitution, which reportedly is the reason a lot of foreigners go to Thailand, they arrested bridge players because they possessed more than 120 playing cards.

Did I mention bridge? I talked about professional sports, since the first comment mentioned the current tennis scandal. Some people may call bridge a sport but I don't.

It seems to me that in all professional sports, cycling, athletics, soccer and now even tennis, the prizes are so high that the athletes even knowingly risk their own health and reputation to get to the top. Why is there so much money in this field? Is it a sort of panem et circenses?

Once when I had a nasty cough, I made a bid and then closed my cards and put them down on the table in order to get a hanky and cover my mouth properly. Opps called the director.

I am absolutely against food and drinks at the bridge table. Once an opp spilled her coffee all over my handbag and then told me, well it was time you threw that bag out anyway.

Please PLEASE don't bring food or drinks to the bridge table. A break is a good idea but people should be able to get up from the table and WASH THEIR HANDS before eating anything. I vote for Club C.

I have always felt sorry for the 2 of clubs, and cheered the few times he managed to take a trick.

There must be something about Egyptian men because Zahi Hawass is also a very handsome and interesting man. His site always has something worth reading. Glad you enjoyed it Ken.

I am sure Mary was an excellent player, but how lucky to play with Omar Sharif and surely how envied she was at the time.

In the event he does get elected he will no doubt ban references to weak or poor trumps, he is banning everything else.
