Favorite word on a forum:


The great Maria Callas in the sextet from Lucia de Lammermoor. (Well, Maria Callas and 5 other great singers):

Brahms Violin Concerto w/Hillary Hahn:

The greatest musical talent of the 20th century was female. Probably the name is unknown to many. Her name:

Nadia Boulanger

Carlos Gardel:

"If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,
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.

"I must believe that something extraordinary is possible" -Jennifer Connelly from A Beautiful Mind.

technical draw: A very interesting and fun tournament so far. Aronian looks like he might win it, So is still in the running, Rapport might surprise, a Chinese GM might be the next world champion, and old Chucky cannot be discarded just yet (but almost). It's been a worthwhile experience. ...

  technical draw: At times we have had favorite Bible verses. Right now I am thinking of Psalm 37:25.

"I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread."

  Magpye: I am fond of Psalm 122:1 - "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go to the house of the Lord."
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Hello <Magpye>. Thanks for visiting. I like that verse too.

  technical draw: I'll be out for a while. My elderly mother slipped and bonked her head. She has been taken to hospital. It doesn't look serious (says the man who is not a doctor).

  technical draw: One of the greatest words written in the New Testament was written by a Jew. Saul of Tarsus:

<Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.>

Amazing. That can only be be God inspired. The wisdom of man cannot come up with that.

  technical draw: My study of Abraham showed me that it's not possible in the limited space of a chess site to teach in a responsible manner the complexity of the man Abraham. So I have put off indefinitely that study.

So I said to myself that I would write about what at first reading appears to be a rather simple New Testament story. The story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery. But alas it was not to be. The story branches off into so many sub topics that it even rivals Abraham! Just for beginners here a just a few points that have to be explored:

1. Why does the story appear only in the gospel of John and not in any of the synoptic gospels?

2. Why doesn't the story appear in some earlier manuscripts?

3. In the story itself we have the following:
The man and the women were caught in the "act" of adultery itself:

4. Where was the man? Did he escape or was he stoned? If so who were the 2 witnesses needed to comply with the law of Moses concerning adultery?

5. Why bring the woman to Jesus? The Pharisees should have taken her to the Sanhedrin or counsel not to an alleged itinerant Rabbi.

6. What did Jesus write in the sand? And why write at all?

7. After Jesus says his famous words: “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone!”, He writes in the sand again, why and what?

8. Why did the accusers leave the scene in order of age, starting with the eldest?

9. And last (for now), why did the woman stay and did not leave with the dispersing crowd?

Bible exegesis is not a simple thing. One must receive from God the ministry of teacher and submit to Him as final authority.

So you see a simple story can produce a wealth of knowledge and of course faith comes by hearing of the Word of God.

  WannaBe: Hope you are doing well, just read all of Puerto Rico have lost power.
Sep-20-17  falso contacto: Hey feliz año nuevo!
Sep-25-17  falso contacto: Watch out, there's a storm coming! Is it dangerous? Nah, its Felipe, my nephew, in Miami on vacation.
Oct-01-17  SugarDom: I think power is out in Puerto Rico.

TD hasn't posted for2 weeks.

I hope he's ok.

  chancho: Espero que te encuentres bien, <TD>.
Oct-09-17  falso contacto: Obviamente tienen razón.
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Hello all. I thank everyone who has been concerned with my safety and that of chancho. I and all my family are safe. I have no information on chancho.

I have had no electricity or running water on this day 24 of Maria.

THIS is just a short message I am sending on a borrowed tablet.

I may try contacting again as soon as all is restored.

...Yet thou I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I shall fear none, for thou are with me..

Again I thank all for your concern.

Your, friend, TD.

  chancho: Me alegro que todo esta bien, <TD>...estoy tratando de llegar a Aguadilla ahora mismo, y la 111 tiene el puente destrozado. Estoy cojiendo unas rutas panoramicas que no le recomiendo a mi peor enemigo. Calles pequeñas en altas montañas con carros pasando al lado opuesto causando tapones. Si sabia que esto iba a ser asi, no hubiera salido en este viaje. Aaaargh!
Oct-17-17  falso contacto: Qué bueno que estén bien los dos. Si necesitan algo avisen.

  technical draw: A month after Maria. Still no power and no running water. However more was lost in the Korean War. Just hunkering down and patiently waiting for things to normalize. I have some gallows humor I will post as soon as I get used to working this tiny keyboard with my fat fingers. Cheers.

  saffuna: Maybe this makes no sense, but there are excellent water purifiers made for hikers and climbers. Simple to use, cost about $30. Why not buy 100,000 of them and send them to PR?
Premium Chessgames Member
  technical draw: Hi,saffuna. That's a good idea. We have a lot of cooks here spoiling the broth. Fema, Corp of Engineers, local government, US Army, and a lot of electrical power workers from different states. I think the water problem should be solved in a few days. But it's the electrical power that's the main problem.

I believe power in my area won't be restored before Thanksgiving.

Anyway, my individual crisis period is about over. I'm getting used to the dark and getting to bed early. I've also lost about 25 pounds which is a Good thing.

I gotta go, Enrique the rat is back.

  WannaBe: Aren't you surrounded by water? Send some this way to CA, we are burning down...
