Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-13-07  BIDMONFA: John Trevelyan


Jul-10-07  mack: Any relation to the great founding father of the British Civil Service?
Jul-10-07  John Thornton: I wouldn't have thought so, would you?
Jul-10-07  mack: Dunno, stranger things have happened at sea.
Jul-10-07  mack: P.S. Posted on many right wing websites, recently?
Jul-10-07  John Thornton: I would have thought so, wouldn't you?
Jul-10-07  skiskichess5: Here is a photo of him.

He resembles Solzenitsyn. His namesake was Secretary of the British Board of Film Censors.

Jul-10-07  mack: And y'know, I never would guessed that they'd find weapons of mass destruction in Wales.
Jul-10-07  skiskichess5: I posted the same pic as Bidmonfa so here is another one, I think it is him standing watching.
Mar-13-10  jackpawn: Okay, why is this guy the 'player of the day'? Just because it's his birthday? My birthday is only a few weeks away and my rating isn't too much lower than his, so do I get to be player of day then?

I know, I'm being petty . . .
