  Penguincw: Congrats to all the new premium members. Thanks to <cg>, Santa and the donators for your generosity. I remember how happy I was when I first won it.

Merry Christmas all. :)

  MissScarlett: No offence, but, to my eyes, none of these bottom-feeders contribute anything to the site. It would've been more judicious to extend my premium membership by, oh, 29 years.

<MissScarlett> eloquent as always. Now remember we were all bottom-feeders at one time or another during our lifetimes. Let's at least give them a chance to see what happens in the upcoming year. Sounds fair...right?

There is a Santa and he is not Bulgarian!

  Kapmigs: It was a surprise, so it is a real gift; for a gift that does not surprise, is no gift at all. I ought to thank Santa for this, because as Greg Duttily once said--

“You see, every piece of the puzzle is required to complete the scene, while some have rough edges and some smooth, they all have value. Being grateful for each piece is not always easy, but it is necessary.”

  morfishine: If these new members are all "bottom feeders", where does that leave <MissScarlett>?

ans: somewhere below the bottom, squirming around in the muck with all the other worms

Happy Holidays!

Thanks to everybody for supporting Chessgames and Merry Christmas to all!>

Thank you Santa, and thank you chessgames!

It's just too bad my old avatar disappeared!?

It was my own offering so I'm a little annoyed someone has swooped in and pinched it during the few months my premium membership had lapsed.

<Dec-25-17 MissScarlett: No offence, but, to my eyes, none of these bottom-feeders contribute anything to the site. It would've been more judicious to extend my premium membership by, oh, 29 years.>

I'm sure your comment is meant facetiously so no offence would be taken by any of us good girls and boys.

And aren't you the bloke who shamelessly goes around with a begging bowl pleading for someone to pay for his premium membership each year?

Anyway, I hope everybody had a merry Christmas and will find good fortune in 2018.
