The name Cowboy Junkie is from the band Cowboy Junkies. Other folks that are on my iPod right now are: Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Thea Gilmore, Suzanne Vega and David Bowie. I have been playing chess forever...and pretty much enjoy reading anything about chess. Chess history, game compliations, stategies...anything by Jeremy Silman...I have bought them all. It has not made me a great chess player but it sure is fun. Besides chess books...I enjoy reading history, biography and the occasional novel. "Killing Floor" by Lee Childs will hook you into a 16 book series. I just finished "Hubris" by Michael Isikoff (really interesting look how America got sucked into Iraq). I have been a member of quite a few sites and Chess.com has everything a chess player could want: videos, Chess Mentor, the Tactics Trainer are my favorites...as well as on-line and live games. It is all good. One last thing...for my American friends...Donald Trump....WTF!!!
