I notice that one New Ideas in Chess. I wonder what year that was published.

Apparently it was 1994.

I'll never forgive them for changing the move notation syntax.

z, don't date yerself, lad. :-}

I just noticed I missed a few, notably my Yasser Seirawan book, one of my
favorites, and not just because it provides a segue you and Mouse will love.

To quote Click & Clack:

"It was a dark and stormy night when out of the inky shadows stepped..."

your humble scribe who in a previous life was known to haunt, in a number
of ways, that great Seattle University District institution The Last Exit
On Brooklyn - truly one of the great coffee houses on the planet. A quick
check on Google generates 955,00 hits. I can assure you only a small portion
of those knew it in its glory years of the 60's and early 70's. You could
order your massively endowed PB&J samich for 25 centavos and get a pot of
Pike Place Market Orange Spice tea and nurse 'em till the cows came home
with only the occassional knowingly couched inquiry from one of the
lovely hippy waitpeople as to whether you would like something else.

But, as this segue is about to reveal, finally, is that the Last Exit was
also The Place for the Seattle chess gliterati. The shining star in this
firmament appeared out of the cosmos, as it were, in the cherubic visage of
one 8 or 9 year old Syrian immigrant named, you guessed it, Yasser Seirawan.
Yes, I can say I witnessed the birth, so to speak, of a genius. I see in
his Wiki bio notes his playing at the Last Exit. If you got game you didn't
dodge the Last Exit, homes!

But I digress...

Five by Five is the second EP by The Rolling Stones and was released in 1964. Captured during a prolific spurt of recording activity at Chess Studios in Chicago that June, Five By Five was released that August in the UK shortly after their debut album, The Rolling Stones, had appeared. The title of Five by Five is a play on words—five tracks recorded by the five members of the band, but we're only guessing, because this is lifted from Wikipedia.
On hand numero dos, we have the imitable 12 x 5, which wss the American version of the five foregoing tracks by our budding band, and was TRENDINGDING even back then, and downright copying the Yosemite institution known as Camp 4, by using the Arabic numerals 12 and 5 on the cover, rather than the same old sh#t. As I said, TRENDINGALING>>>

Y'all's move.

fe (also fi) in the Jamaican idiom is the infinitive.

so, fe dead (phonetically fey deadah) translates roughly as

going to die, not dead

the state senator from Chula Vista way back when was Wadie P. Deddeh

as far as I know he wasn't Jamaican, but he did substitute teach my high school Civics class once.

We are getting busted for climbing content! I forgot the magenta alert notice and Officer Style-Challenged is obviously puzzled, thinking this is a bike race, when actually it's nothing of the sort.

It's a bike wreck, though!

Oh, yeah. Here's the mild climbing content. You ever climb on limestone like the Dolomites, anyone? Any horror stories? Lightning storms, partner fails? No death, though, Grateful, Spiteful, or Otherful.

One, in an occastional series of Public Service Announcements.


Urea dissolves the intercellular matrix of the cells of the stratum corneum, promoting desquamation of scaly skin, eventually resulting in softening of hyperkeratotic areas

Why is this important you ask? This is how to get rid of those annoying and sometimes painful calluses which develop on you footz.

Those people in the video are not the swiftest birds in the flight pattern. They could have gotten the answer had they remembered to knock.

Knock on wood (not Ron Wood), Knock yourself out, Knock on heaven's door (and hope nobody says Who is there?), Litte Richard heard me knocking, had a snappy comeback

This is the best, in many opinions, of Linda's pieces. It took me several looks before I saw it. This is the same area that I traipsed around as a young teen, plinking at birds and posts and picking up buckets of crawdads.

She tells me she's lived in Yosemite thirty years. This show is all about how she sees this place. I took the two above before the show ever opened and she says HELLO, WAYNE & CINDY!

There other things at the exhibit, too.

These are reputedly from Oroville, just a stone's throw (though who would) from Nita & TTR.

Why 'these' when only one? Good question - bad explanation.

58' wood interurban for Northern Electric Railway (California). Note the corner windows, and the arched clerestory windows.

It seems to me that driving every kind of rig that's ever been made and only being rewarded with weed, whites or wine is not that great a deal.

I'll go ask Alice or Terrible Herbst, though.

One thing for sure, that ain't Casy Jones in the bowtie.

All the same, old bean, the numbers add up to thirteen.

2 + 3 + 8 = 13

It takes no Einsteen to seen that.

As for the driver's potential for disaster, we can only pray: In Casei donat Caeser, Deus suscipiet eam.
Never fear, the cowcatcher will catch her.

similarly, by the identity property of addition

2 + 3 + 8 + 0 + 0 + 0 + 0 = 13

238000

In a RGB color space, hex #238000 is composed of 13.7% red, 50.2% green and 0% blue. Whereas in a CMYK color space, it is composed of 72.7% cyan, 0% magenta, 100% yellow and 49.8% black. It has a hue angle of 103.6 degrees, a saturation of 100% and a lightness of 25.1%. #238000 color hex could be obtained by blending #46ff00 with #000100. Closest websafe color is: #339900.
