|Nov-14-15|| ||TheFocus: Well I saw <TheAngryTaxiDriver> and knew it was <Bickle>. I wasn't going to say anything to him but today he had to run his mouth and then he got his girlfriend <harriet> stirred up again.|
I don't think either of them farts unless the other one has given him permission to.
Two sick little puppies.
|Nov-15-15|| ||TheFocus: Ronda Rousey got knocked put by Holly Holm!
As an MMA teacher, I could see some mistakes in Ronda's game plan, but that's the way the fight game goes.
Come back and get your belt back!
|Nov-15-15|| ||TheFocus: <parisattack> <Big article here this week about homeless people on Oahu>|
It is getting worse all the time. One problem is there is no rent control. People have jobs but rents are getting too high. Many of them live along the Waianae coast so I consider them houseless. They work and send their kids to school but come home to a tent on the beach.
Your other set of homeless are the dregs that do not want to work. They are the drunks and drug users, or they stand on the corner yelling at the world, stinking of urine.
They infest the parks and ruin it for everybody.
Where I come from, there are vagrancy laws that keep people from living on the streets. Many a vagrant has been escorted to the county line and given a warning not to return. When I was there on vacation, there were no one sleeping on the streets, or panhandling.
We are not hurting, owning a house in Pearl Highlands. In a few years, we are selling out and leaving "Paradise."
|Nov-19-15|| ||TheFocus: Well, today I had to say good-bye to some Native Americans who were working on a construction project at my job.|
"May your journey upon the Red Road be interesting and may you see many summers."
|Nov-19-15|| ||TheFocus: So many relatives coming through the house today has my nerves frazzled.|
I don't know whether I should bang a gong or bong a gang.
|Nov-19-15|| ||WannaBe: Saw you have a new title for your forum, North Dakota Navajo? Didn't realize them Navajo lived that far north. =))|
|Nov-20-15|| ||TheFocus: <Two Years Ago>
Every night for the last two years, my cat scratches at my front door.
I thought the scratching would end when he died.
|Nov-21-15|| ||TheFocus: Burritos and champagne?|
|Nov-22-15|| ||TheFocus: Boring Saturday ending soon.
Rain was pouring down so I stayed home. Got a lot of work done around the apartment. Purging and cleaning.
|Nov-22-15|| ||TheFocus: Another rainy day. May become Beer Sunday.|
|Nov-22-15|| ||parisattack: A six-pack of Primo - and the bong.|
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: I post chess quotes by famous players and get criticized.|
I post chess trivia/history and get criticized.
Someone posts thousands of Bible verses and silence fills the room.
Someone posts thousands of music videos and the silence is deafening.
Seems to me that a great many posters on this site should put on their big girl panties and shut up about what I do.
|Nov-23-15|| ||Jim Bartle: I was going to tell you the quotes are great and some of the jokes are, too. But OK, I'll just shut up.|
|Nov-23-15|| ||jessicafischerqueen: |
<TheFocus> Who was criticizing you for posting chess trivia/history?
Please don't stop doing that- you have a huge library and I think the vast majority of the readers appreciate you sharing that information on the game and player pages.
|Nov-23-15|| ||OhioChessFan: <Someone posts thousands of Bible verses and silence fills the room.>|
Not true, they are commented on for it, they ignore it and so be it. And they don't regularly fill the entire first page of recent kibitzing. This is a matter of scale.
<Someone posts thousands of music videos and the silence is deafening.>
See the above.
I like the quotes although I think you go a little overboard. Some of the jokes are good. The incessant references to simuls? Meh. It strikes me as minituae, not history. It gives every appearance of wanting to build up a post count.
I disagree with <Jess> and think most people feel the same way about the simul kibitzes as I do. Maybe I'm wrong.
|Nov-23-15|| ||Karposian: <OhioChessFan: I disagree with <Jess> and think most people feel the same way about the simul kibitzes as I do. Maybe I'm wrong.>|
Yes, you're wrong.
<TheFocus>, please continue posting trivia and quotes, everything you've got. I enjoy reading your posts, and on top of that you're a pretty funny guy too!
Ignore the naysayers. There will always be those who for some (psychological?) reason feel the need to criticize other posters because they don't like their content, they disagree with their views, the topic doesn't interest them, or whatever.
Keep up the good work.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Thank you everyone for your comments.
I appreciate both the nays and the yeas.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Reposted from Capablanca vs S M Ballou, 1915:|
<Miss Scarlett> After mulling it over, I have decided to accept your advice and will stop posting stuff on Capablanca.
I am finding that Caparros has many mistakes and he is my major source.
I think you have pointed out three mistakes so far. As a big fan of Capablanca, I don't want to spread false information.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: Rainy again for the third day in a row.
During the winter in Hawai'i, we don't tan, we rust.
|Nov-23-15|| ||TheFocus: If anyone here is into martial arts, my teacher is on the December cover of BLACK BELT Magazine. Also 2015 Black Belt Hall of Fame Self Defense Instructor of the Year.|
I come from a good lineage.
|Nov-24-15|| ||TheFocus: So far no rain. But I think winter has arrived in Hawai'i. We will probably have plenty of rain. At least it's not snow or ice or sleet.|
|Nov-24-15|| ||WannaBe: Light sprinkle here at NorCal, should turn into (heavy) rain by late today/tomorrow. Gonna be fun for the holiday travelers.|
Taking some co-workers to SFO tomorrow after work.
|Nov-24-15|| ||parisattack: Happy TGD <TheFocus>! We're headed up the hill for a few days, see you on the flip-flop.|
Enjoy your turkey or huli-huli haole, whichever tradition you follow.
|Nov-24-15|| ||TheFocus: <parisattack> I don't think huli huli haole will be served! It will have to be turkey.|
Enjoy your mountain retreat!
|Nov-24-15|| ||TheFocus: #19th to 19,000.
There must be some good luck to go with that?
