Personal Notes

Howdy from Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

Chess, volunteering at The Salvation Army, helping people with computer problems are three things I like to do. details my quest to play chess in every state--50! complete.

My favorite Scriptures are: Colosians 3:23 "Whatever You do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men."

And II Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed."

I live by the Officer's Creed: I will not lie, cheat, or steal OR tollerate those that do!

Chess has provided me with problems to solve forover 50 years and I am still learning!

GM Yermolinsky, IM Michael Basman, and IM Yaacov Norowitz have influenced my chess the most.
