about me

Been playing for 55+ years, but am still at the intermediate level.  Have been 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 What Will Motivate Governing Bodies; Not What is Easy

That if they are found guilty of cheating, then their ...
If Looney Tunes Had a Team
Boris and Natasha would be an interesting pair. The only question is how obvious their Ch**ting would be.
There is a difference between "innocent," not guilty," and probably something like "not proven guilty." I'm not sure which the EBL ruled.
Any converts?
I abstained because I haven't read it. But what is the difference in the poll between "not convinced" and "adamant that all was kosher?" Also, between "convinced" and "adamant that nothing was kosher?"
Falling numbers in Orlando
" As for international attendance there are many things that combine. I would venture that Tourism to the US has declined the last 2 years or so, the ETTD-effect." According to this article, tourism dropped in 2016 as well. But the writer makes some interesting points ...
Did The Blue Team Cheat?
I abstained because I don't know. Avon has certainly given a lot of evidence that they did cheat. I wonder why the few voters who said 'no'voted that way.
