about me

I am a retired teacher.  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, happy in love and life.

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,

Country
Canada

My calculus teacher used to write "cwe" (usually line 1 or 2 of the equation) and that meant "consistent with error", meaning I made an early mistake but followed through the process. Not a math person but love learning. And I loved this... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_Who_Loved_Only_Numbers C

I can't find a reference to the Coke a cola Coup. If I recall correctly, declarer (Lee Hazen?) was surprised to see his opponent, defending a grand slam ordering the coke. He surmised that he thought he had a trump trick and dropped his off-side stiff K of trump ...
Saving at MP?
Jesus saves. Barry. C

"The rest are mine" Tom claimed. For the MSC fans.... "An over-call with AKJ10 is obvious" he marshaled. "What's the problem?" he frothed. "Coldbottom grabbed you yet again", he noted frankly. C
Tanking to get a read
We call that the Sominex Coup. C
Anyone else not thrilled with the "new" BBO
Fred, How glorious is retirement? Miss you like crazy. C
What do you think of the director's actions?
In golf, spectators can and do call attention to irregularities. In bridge...............? No. C
Hasta la vista, visa?
There have been some issues with players obtaining visas. This is a situation unique to China. The US Department of State has not granted visa to bridge players over the years for various reasons. Unfortunately, the political climate between China and Canada makes some of us with or w/o ...
