Jan-09-06  EmperorAtahualpa: Dana Reizniece, born in 1981 in Latvia. She is a Woman Grand Master and her current FIDE rating is 2287.

And concerning her looks..just take a look at her pictures, need I say anything more? :)

Jan-09-06  Father Karras: <EmperorAtahualpa> Thou shalt not commit adultery. I suspect you have done this in your mind, as you seem overly interested in these temptations of women.
Jan-09-06  hintza: Thou shalt not make duplicate posts.
Jan-09-06  EmperorAtahualpa: <Thou shalt not make duplicate posts.> LOL!!!
Jan-09-06  Father Karras: <hintza> Everytime one says mass it is a reoccurance. The point is it a good reoccurence meant to reach out to all. If I posted only on one site, the many may not receive the good word.
Jan-09-06  hintza: Not the kind of thing you want to be saying to an atheist, to be honest.
Jan-09-06  sciacca khan: You go, Father, right on!

  cro777: "Great people are ordinary people with an extraordinary amount of determination!"

Dana Reizniece-Ozola thoughtful. It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you are capable to do with it.

Dec-02-16  Pantagruel: Based on her education and political experience (resume and her obvious dedication and determination, Dana Reizniece-Ozola would undoubtedly make a better US president than the president elect.
Jun-27-18  wtpy: Pantagruel, I would certainly be on favor of granting her immediate American citizenship if the switch could be made,but this begs the question--Why would she ever leave Latvia?
Sep-21-18  PhilFeeley: I wish her all the best in her endeavors:

Sep-22-18  wordfunph: olalah...incredible!
