about me

Been playing for 55+ years, but am still at the intermediate level.  Have been teaching beginner bridge to seniors.  Strong believer in the 5Fs--fun, focus, forgive, forget, and if none of those work go into a private place to shout the 5th F.  Another f is for frustration; but we always come back to play in spite of it.

Financial fraudsters are targeting ACBL entities
This wasn't an email, but it is called the "FBI Scam" One night a few years ago, a full page on my desktop said something like "You have been accused by the FBI of child pornography." On top of the page, was some FBI information and on the side ...
But is bridge Fun?
From my profile: "Strong believer in the 5Fs--fun, focus, forgive, forget, and if none of those work go into a private place to shout the 5th F. Another f is for frustration; but we always come back to play in spite of it.
Zero Tolerance can work!
Last Wednesday, a woman in our club game called the director, saying in essence that her partner made her cry by yelling at her. She asked the director how he would have bid her hand. (Politely, he didn't reply "under an assumed name. My partner and I thought that ...
Age - JUST a Number!
There's a woman at a non-sanctioned duplicategame I play in who now is 101. Plays rarely, but not too badly, except "I always have bad cards." When she turned 100, we gave her lifetime free play. (We ARE generous)
