After nearly a year of serious illness, and many operations, I am on the mend. I intend to make a good recovery, and return to RHP in 2015 to recapture my previous form and hopefully have fun, meet good people, but most of all to get my chess brain back in order. If you don't practice, you get wobbly - akin to not riding a bike.
I look forward to meeting old pals, new pals, offering a bit of help when asked for it - but most of all to keep my brain in good working order. A positive and active brain tends to a healthy body!
