TD playing the violin in Carnegie Hall or somewhere else.

let my right hand forget her cunning
If I do not remember thee,
let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth;
if I prefer not (an undivided) Jerusalem above my chief joy..."

Technical draw is a fictional character living in the collective vision of chess who has little relationship to the real technical draw; a neurotic and insecure figure obsessively clinging to the promise of power and wealth as if it were the only meaning in his life. -(apologies to Daniel Greenfield (Sultan Knish).

   Mar-26-17 D Mayers vs Fischer, 1953
technical draw: Mayers died in 2014. This game was played in 1953. That means that Mayers had 61 years of bragging rights! "Fischer, Smicher, I beat him 61 years ago!"

  technical draw: <tu mamá, debe ser muy divertida si se parece a ti.>

Ella se pasa robándome los chistes. Uno de mis favoritos es que cuando la veo haciendo algún trabajo pesado le digo, "si necesitas ayuda me avisas...y yo con gusto buscaré quien te ayude!"

Y ahora ella me paga con la misma moneda!

  technical draw: Thank you, thank you all for the well wishes. Today I am 63 years old and I still have a full head of hair, however underneath it it's not so full. That's ok. I've been there and done that so I'll just relax now and enjoy the rest.

I share a birthday with the original sitcom comedian Jackie Gleason so I guess this day produces jokesters.

Thanks again and happy chess to all.....
