Christmas Eve's Eve

This is the day before Christmas Eve or as I like to call it, "Christmas Eve's Eve". For those of you who are new readers and missed it last year, here once again is the All Purpose Holiday Symbol. This year's version has a few improvements over last year's. Nothing major was changed but I'm happier with it this way. Maybe I should re-name it All Purpose Holiday Symbol 2.0

Table for One

The Holiday Season is well under way, and as usual expectations are high, and so is the stress. Most of this stress is self-imposed and yet people continue to do it year after year. We never really learn--do we? People are friendlier than usual during the holidays, but also more impatient at the same time. This is especially evident when they're driving. We are all quite busy indeed but, let's try to remember in spite of the activity and distractions, there are people who will be alone during the holidays. I want to encourage everyone to reach out and connect with some one that you suspect might be lonely. It's an easy thing to do. No one should feel alone during the holidays.

Ok, end of sermon. I promise to be lighthearted and funny next week.

Full Contact Chess

Some sports and games are much more satisfying to actually play than they are to watch. Some examples come to mind like; bowling, golf, sailing, judo, fencing, Curling, water polo, and auto racing. It seems that the excitement as well as the subtleties do not really translate well to the viewer at home. While we're on the subject of sports, how does an activity qualify as a sport? Aren't we we really stretching the definition of a sport by including Chess? Is a sport merely two or more individuals just trying to outscore each other? If so, then why not have an Olympic Staring competition? I think in order for something to be considered a sport there should be some level of physicality required, and some measure of danger involved. Random violence has a way of spicing things up a bit.
