I love chess and chess history. Worked as a counselor at a chess camp for several years and met lots of GMs. Learned a lot about the players of the 30's-60's. Ran into lots of Russians. Sold antique maps and prints for 30 years; (yeah, I'm old- but far as I can tell, not dead yet). Semi retired, I'm outdoors a lot and work with Hispanic kids with reading difficulties. I tell 'em I'm 29. If they are 2nd graders they believe me. Give me a few years, I'll probably believe it myself. addendum: I'm now working as a sub in grades pre-k thru 5. My kids are in college and I miss the little ones. Another addendum-helped found a thrift store for our little community two years ago.
