    A collection of pictures and cartoons from 10 years of doing
    the bloggy thing. I enjoyed putting it together but curled up
    my toes and groaned at some of the stuff I posted in those 10 years.

    Hopefully somebody somewhere has picked up something they
    can use in their games from all the games and positions I used.

    All I really wanted to do was put across was my love for this great game If
    some of that has rubbed off onto you lot then I consider it a good job done.

    Happy New Year.

    Nice hat. I really like that desk of yours. Cup with pens, pencils, chess set, and random books scattered about. I'll wager there are millions of others out there (including mine) that look just like it. I think these posts are excellent!

    Happy New Year 🙂

    My favorite blog of yours was the one where I caught you in a mistake (something about trapping a Queen?). You were so gracious in admitting the error.
    Happy New Years. You are a treasure here at RHP.

    Hi MontyMoose,

    it would have been a deliberate error to see who was paying attention.
    I do not make errrors!

    Hi MontyMoose

    Somebody gave you a thumbs down, incredible (I thumbed up).

    I do not bother with these thumb things but just letting you know it was not me.

    When these thumb things appeared I was very tempted to hawk the whole
    site giving thumbs down a random without even reading the post.
    I think the names should appear under the thumbs.
    (good title for a song that: 'Under My Thumb.' maybe I'll write one. )

    Happy New Year.

    @greenpawn34:

    "...'Under My Thumb..."

    Heard this song when I was 13 and I realized that maybe there was more to music than Southern Baptist gospel.
    😛

    Doesn't seem like a song you could cover, but there have been a few good ones:

    The Who did a 45rpm cover/mix with the flip side being 'Last Time'.

    Blind Faith with Clapton, Winwood, and Ginger Baker.

    And if you are ready for the New Year, Social Distortion's version!
