about me

I am a teacher of mentally handicapped children by day. By night, (bridge) blogger, writer, editor, director, occasional teacher and social player. 

I wrote Collateral Damage, the sordid story and cold case of a stolen National title. You can see it and other essays here;

I and a few others fail to grasp why the ACBL cannot hear and appeal that was filed in 1979 at the event in question. By that abdication, they have conspired to deny the title to the rightful winners and thereby endorsed self-confessed and convicted cheaters. 

I reside in suburban Toronto, and am back at work (where I belong) after a year off with a fabulous month volunteering in Rwanda and happy in love, life, career. 

I have a fabulous son with the greatest name in Negro League history. You can figure that out.

Anyone is invited to email me at dancesavecwords@gmail.com. 

Best,

Canada

Thanks. I have the book but I always enjoyed revisiting them. I see they forgot Frank Vince's Bols Bridge Tip of the Decade... C
The Worst Convention Ever
Back in the days of yore we played Transfer Milquetoast versus forcing club. Like CRASH (Colour/Rank/Shape) it was designed to be "destructive" and quickly faded into oblivion. I have no idea what the bids might be in Xfer M. Perhaps it is my brain injury, or more likely ...
The Worst Convention Ever
Many moons ago, while filling out a convention card, I asked Fishbein? The reply: "Even Fishbein doesn't play Fishbein." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oozQ4yV__Vw C
ATB
North was obese. South, bulimic. I still prefer the reverse and jump in spades. NS need better agreements. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yq3JuKY2kQ C
Seniors USA 1 Swing Hand
The state of the match is of course very relevant. Would be wonderful to be Zia, Boye, Chagas or the like, if just for one day. One of the best aspects of our game is we minnows can swim with the sharks. Compelling story, ty for sharing. If just for ...
