Thank you Cole, and the best to you and your family. Lets make a New Years Resolution to find a few of those user friendly subjects we can agree on this year. I enjoyed very much when we do find common ground.
The great chess tournament is going to happen again this year on New Years Eve. He usually kills me, but I am known for a few victories.
Out here in Kalifornia, we used to always go to my In-laws for New Years, right near the Rose Parade route. Those were the good ol Days, and when the chess tournament began with my dear Father in Law many years ago. The tradition lives on with John and me but not in Pasadena, and this will be one of the Years the Rose Parade will be on Jan 2nd. When the first is a Sunday, the parade is always next day. Goes back to the early beginnings of the parade, and still honored today.
Happy New Year!
