about me


Fate dealt Ralph F. Lind a strong bridge game, but Chance left little time to play.


He wrote a 5542 bidding System (called Aurora) that swings to advantage against 2/1.  It is documented.  He is looking for a New England expert with an inclination and the ability to play it. 


If you have interest, PM him.


Retired.  He lives in the Bay State.


United States of America

The Kibs Are Not Alright
Yes I watch the Oscars when I can. The fact that the winners have been determined days before does not make it any the less exciting for me. But by far the very most exciting thing I've ever seen at the Oscars was a few years ago when La ...
