The Canadian border is closed to most for another month, but the imaginations of our authorities still run wild and free - especially with regard to covid-19 stats, the availability of testing, and health care preparedness.

My sneezing and cough prompt moist droplets to spew all over those reports… achoo!

Chris, as a f2f club owner you may not be getting enough credit for managing not to be a violent psychopath in these times.

Likely savvy club owners will minimize their losses by assessing when best to let go and move on. Good luck to you and Donna, whatever path you choose.

Here's my 39 cents worth:

My motivation for recouping that huge sum was about holding BBO accountable for keeping their agreement with me to play those 8 boards, just as I had been keeping my agreement with them to pay for their service.

The principle of “keeping our agreements with others” works well in all kinds of relationships. The toll for not honouring these agreements is usually much higher than 39 cents.

Although I have been a fan of BBO for over 7 years, the following email exchange soured my opinion of their customer service last week, after asking for my money back 3 times…

Re: Daylong Robot MP Tournament #2

Hi,

I paid .39 for this tournament and played a couple of hands then was bounced out, with an ERROR message. Now I can't get back into this tourney without paying again.

Please reimburse my 39 cents.

Thanks,

Hi, As you can see from my BB $ account activities I was charged for 4 tournaments @ .39 cents on April 9 and I only played 3 because I was bounced out of #8675591 and couldn't get back in unless I paid again.

See tourney # 8675591 at 10:43AM on April 9…. that is the one I am talking about. My account was reduced from $5.29 to $4.90 nonetheless.

The 3 tournaments @.39 cents that I played and completed were 8675589, 8675598, 8675593. But #8675591 I was not able to complete for being bumped out. Please reimburse me for that one.

The curve of the Montreal NABC comments has flattened considerably since the original cluster of posts last week.

I wouldn't mind switching to a new topic: food, in particular.
Does BW have a food forum?

Phil, is Larry no longer able to speak for himself?

Otherwise, wisdom looks good on you.

I hear Larry's fear and worry about his family. Perhaps he is unable to help them in this situation and has chosen to lash out at others in frustration. Who amongst us hasn't?

Random BW posters are not, of course, the true cause of another's distress. om. om.

We can all leave behind a fearful mind loop that creates nothing but self-suffering, by refocussing on helpful activities within our control at this time.

Kevin, au contraire cheri, clubs hold the entire treasury of game entry fees to spend in any manner they see fit.

Seems to me this is an opportune time for clubs owners to organize a “government of the clubs, by the clubs, for the clubs, that shall not perish from the earth”… with apologies to no one but Abraham Lincoln.

I had an appointment at a medical clinic this week to have stitches removed. When I arrived, a nurse gave me a mask and told me to wear it.

But I couldn't breathe wearing it, so I pulled it down from my nose to let in some air. The nurse became very stern with me so I pulled the mask back over my nose and slipped my finger along its side edge to let in a little air that way.

Beats me how anyone can wear those masks for any length of time.

“Another main function of this position is to work on the Daily Bulletins at the NABCs.”

Most of the comments on BW are the opinions of the posters who made them.

Opinions, like thoughts and feelings, come and go. They flow through us, ending up in the ether like every other form that takes shape in our human lives.

However our egos prefer to hang onto our opinions tightly, as if we will personally disintegrate without them. We are not our opinions, thoughts or feelings. In our essence, we are all much greater than these.

Give inner peace a chance.

Sorry to hear about your fried synapses, Ray.

To recover quickly, hold a jade crystal in each palm and stop burning those weeds.

As for spirit communication about the question at hand, “until September” was the message to me.
