Winter is Not For Wimps

Just for fun, here is what the sun looks like from near my house on the Winter Solstice, in Alaska near 58 degrees North Latitude. Becaue of that mountain we get two "sundowns!" Since it's also cloudy much of the time, we have to do something to keep our spirits up. Thank goodness for chess!

January Chess Blogging Carnival - Best of!

Blue Devil Knight is now in the process of passing the torch to me to run the Chess Blogging Carnival. I will soon post the information needed to submit material. The deadline will be January 15th, instead of the 1st.

I plan on something a bit different for this Carnival. I invite everyone to submit what you think are your best posts EVAH, the best posts you've ever seen on other blogs, and especially your best games. So start looking for the "best of."

More to come...

December Chess Blogging Carnival is UP!

Blue Devil Knight has kept this going for some time, and now passes the torch to is his last Carnival.

I don't know how the heck I got four posts in there because I believed I submitted only three. Sorry to be a Space Hog!

I have some ideas for the Carnival and will post about the future soon. I am considering doing a "Greatest Hits" Carnival, for one thing. In the meantime, THANK YOU to BDK of Chess Confessions for his work!
