Oh to be a young world traveling chess master (one wonders what its like :) Ever consider having Abby do some guest blogging Elizabeth?

Considering the BS she had to deal with the last couple of times she blogged for CLO, perhaps a little more freedom of expression and an audience with a touch more open mindedness would be a good fit?
Just a thought.

Panda power people.

The action shot with Kraai wearing the black beanie holding his shirt over his mug like he's about to rob a liquor store is classic.

Not many photos of krush or pruess. I guess they are off doing their own thing.
