    In light of recent events in the USA
    in places like Oklahoma, Texas and others
    and in view of the fact that this is an
    international chess website.

    I want to pass on this evening my prayers
    and hopeful wishes to the people of all those
    areas that have suffered in the terrible weather
    events that have cost lives, homes and countless
    damage.

    I pray that people will still be found alive and that
    those communities involved will have the strength
    to clean up, rebuild and be even better than they
    were before.

    From me and from the Republic of Ireland,
    good wishes go out to you and also our best
    aid. Anything anyone can do from this small
    island I am sure will be offered and will be done.

    The people of this small nation helped to make
    America great, and will continue to help in all
    ways possible to keep the indomitable spirit alive.
    You are in our prayers, and we shall be there too
    in all practical ways possible, as we have been before.

    God bless you all. The Irish will help alongside you
    to restore what was before. Know that you are in our
    prayers and what practical help can be offered shall
    be offered by Irish people here and by those already there.

    Thanks for that Woody. Part of what makes America strong, is a good helping of Irish genes.

    Well said, CP. Having been raised as one of a very few Swedes in a largely
    Italian and Irish Town, an hour or so from Boston, I know this to be true.

    Please respect Johnny's thread.
    PM Mailbox is still open 16/7...

    Note: Iggy's still a virgin after [two months
    shy of] six cheap temptation strewn years.
