    NO! Don't go in there! You don't have to die! No one has to die at 30! You could live! LIVE! Live, and grow old! I've seen it! She's seen it!

    Suddenly the pub wasn't an option, how to fill those evenings? Write a chess site.

    Pros : No kids, no RHP.
    Cons : Everything else. (I joke 😉 )

    Hmm... that timing suggests your first son is of age to join an online correspondence chess site like rhp.com. If so, please tell RHP Code Monkey, Jr. that Grampy Bobby would appreciate the honour of being his first opponent in a casual game.

    You've just spoken the enduring sentiments of every grateful father on this site; thanks, darvlay.

    Matthew 19:14 " allow the little children to come unto me for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Jesus Christ loved little children. Their unbridled and unemcumbered faith, trust and love is a joy to behold and a blessing not only to parents but to us grandparents as well. It's a shame that many times growing older robs them of the pure attributes of their childhood.
