about me

Been playing for 55+ years, but am still at the intermediate level.  Recently began teaching beginner bridge to seniors.  Strong believer in the 5Fs--fun, focus, forgive, forget, and if none of those work go into a private place to shout the 5th F.  Another f is for frustration; but we always come back to play in spite of it.

Do you spend too much time playing bridge?
If we were not playing bridge some of us would be working, sleeping, reading, texting, eating, exercising, drinking, bothering others, gambling, volunteering etc.,etc. At least a couple of these are worse than playing bridge
BBO Vugraph - Where are the women?
"Regarding the comments on the number of kibitzers - would all of them just sign off if there was one open semi instead of two? How many additional would be on to watch the women's final? The snobby elitist attitudes expressed on this thread astound me. (This is not directed ...
dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
I think the fact that bidding boxes somewhat reduce the noise level makes them worth using for people of all ages. And I admit that I was intimidated by them when I first came upon them
dump bidding boxes - all in favour ?
Why don't you just say it costs too much? It's a valid argument, unlike the others.
Coughing Doctors
I wish today was April 1 so we would think it was a slightly funny joke.
