Today is my birthday, but there is nothing to celebrate. It was my worst year ever, spent mostly in hospital dealing with leg and arm amputations and other medical problems. I'm stuck in a dump of a nursing facility with nothing to do but try to write some useful articles for chess.com when the lunatics are not roaming the hallways screaming. I never realized "Where's Poppa?" was a documentary!

Anyway, to cheer up I thought I'd present a selection of sacrices from my career. Treat them as puzzles, soe easy, some difficult, and try to smile. This set is from the 1970s.
