  • POEM: Clocking It by Tom Billsborough (5/26/2017 7:38:00 AM)

    A great game for curing insomnia. I watched one of my brother's County matches and actually stayed awake for twenty minutes. Now that really was Toil. My idea for playing chess was your bloodbath approach. Charge of the Light Brigade Stuff. Of course my brother built up his defence and waited for the first blunder on my part! Mind you, I could kick him off the field at Soccer, so there! His fancy Sicilian Defence didn't help him there. Anyway I though Sicilian defence was something the Mafia used!

  • POEM: Clocking It by Tom Billsborough (5/26/2017 7:33:00 AM)

    I know what you mean about bloodbath. My style was rather like the Charge of the Light brigade. It worked against average players but not against my brother who has represented three different counties and played in International tournaments. He'd just lie in waiting shoring up his defence, waiting for the first rash mistake on my part! my excuse is that I'm too impatient for the game! Once watched a county match. Great cure for insomnia. Talk about life in slow motion! Maybe one day I'll mug up on the Sicilian Defence and surprise him. Or is the Sicilian defence something to do with the Mafia!

  • POEM: ~~~~~the River~~~~~ by Susan Williams (5/25/2017 3:31:00 PM)

    yes, confluence reminds me of that between the Mosel and the Rhine, the clean waters of the former running side by side with the much more polluted Rhine. I see MJ's Conrad point and I think this is an exceptional poem too.
