about me

I'm a retired IT professional now living in a small southwestern Ontario town with my husband, John Carruthers, and our two cats, Scully and Emma (Peel).


I started playing bridge in university, was introduced to duplicate in 1970 and here I am many years later, having taken some years off due to demands of work and family. I've been very fortunate to have represented Canada internationally on and off since 1984.


I also enjoy genealogy, gardening, reading and travelling.

Agree with Matt and Richard. Under no circumstances am I ceding control of my computer to a 3rd party even briefly - it takes very little to install something harmful and then remove the traces. When the ACBL finds a better way, or better and easier-to-install software, maybe. So no thanks ...
No July tournament from Reynolds Team Matches
1st says "no longer available" and the second "sold out" when I look!
No July tournament from Reynolds Team Matches
Gavin makes an excellent point - I doubt our slow (by today's standards) out-in-the-country internet (5 bps on a good day) can handle it (video stream + Skype/Zoom + BBO - perhaps times two) not to mention buying two cameras!
ALT events -- one writer's perspective
Want to flag "like" more than once!
Anti cheating committee as a start. Click on the banner. There has been a BW post pretty much every time a series started (not from me). Last one for a while starts Monday ...
How do you pronounce Jacoby?
I can't imagine pronouncing it any other way!
Cancellation of 2020 Tournament Schedule
Totally disagree with everything you said! For once the ACBL got it right.
District 7 Columbia/Atlanta Regionals are A GO!
Washrooms still closed in my area (Windsor/Essex County), at least the ones I've seen in the handful of stores (grocery, pharmacy) I've been in.
