intermittent thoughts on my life and work as the chess coach at IS 318, a public middle school in Brooklyn
dats what I'm talkin bout.
I've reached the age where, when I see stuff like this, the first thought that comes to mind is, "My that looks awfully uncomfortable."
That's not checkmate.
Nice picture! My name is Lauren Goodkind and I have been playing in USCF tournaments for about nine years now. I produce a TV chess show, "Chess Diva" in Palo Alto, California, with my twin sister Barbara. The purpose of the show is to promote chess especially to females, since it is a male-dominated game. Over the summer, we entered the sixth episode in the WAVE (Western Access Video Excellence Awards) contest. The link is http://www.accesswithoutborders.org/wave. About a month ago, we learned that "Chess Diva" was a finalist for the "best instructional" category. Two days ago, I flew to Denver, Colorado to attend the award ceremony. We are happy that "Chess Diva" won the award for the "best instructional" category!! The sixth episode features Barbara and I teaching some chess positions. We also show a "Chess in the community" video. Not only that, we also feature top USCF female chess players interviews with Alisha Chawla and Jessica Lauser. We invite you to watch our show on the internet and give us feedback! The link to the show is http://www.geocities.com/chessdiva.show/Episode6.html. Enjoy, Lauren and Barbara

Count every ' F ' in the followingtext:FINISHED FILES ARE THE RESULT OF YEARS OFSCIENTIFIC STUDY COMBINED WITHTHE EXPERIENCE OFYEARS...(SEE BELOW)HOW MANY ?THERE ARE 6 -- nojoke.READ IT AGAIN !Really, go Back andTry to find the 6 F's before you scrolldown.The brain cannotprocess 'OF'.
Congratulations Lauren and Barbara :)Chess sisters rock.
wow my brain actually is stupid it turns out.
You might want to look at "rscheearch" again. I failed that "f" test the first time I saw it years ago (although professional proofreaders seem to do well with it). Today, though, I can tell you there are six F's, Jim likes 100 but not 99, and it's "Barbara and me".
A department store in Iowa was surrounded by police this morning because they got a tip from a customer who overheard Bed Linen was on the third floor.
Must be a slow day on the internet. :-)
