Small Town Stories

I was going to post this yesterday, but the site conveniently went offline for maintenance and I had to go to bed. Anyway, I hope you all had a happy Veterans Day.

I wanted to share with you guys a chess tradition my hometown has. Every Thursday night, chess players from all around the region come to the local Borders to play chess. It's an interesting experience and can lead to some great games being played. One recent one I played is shown below. I would appreciate any feedback on how I played.

Anyway, I am currently in the middle of expanding my friends list and becoming more active in groups. So, if you guys want to befriend me or send me a group invite, now would be the time to do it.

I will have a photo album out soon. Included in it will probably be the iphone app that I recently downloaded and maybe a few shots of the secret chess project that I have been working on. Stay tuned...

I need you guys to help me on a math question. Take the number 4, use it 3 times, and write a mathematical expression that will give you the number 55. YOU CAN ONLY USE THE NUMBER 4. Can anyone solve this?

EDIT: Thanks, JohnKorean!
