How much did the ACBL ode in Hawaii?
Stu, if I am understanding, the total loss to the ACBL is $680,000? ALso, there will be a hit taken by the Hawaii unit. I frequently attend the Hawaii Regionals at The Prince (Great Regional, Great Hotel) but would not dream of heading back in January after my recent ...

Seeking PhD Candidate for 3 year Bridge Project
Hi Samantha! We miss your visits to the States! Please return soon. In regard to the 7 keys to aging well that you specify, I would argue that items #6 and #7, diet and appearance, are clearly correlated to #1, social connection. People have their pride. The import of social ...
