We rented the movie Pirates of the Carribean. I enjoyed seeing Johnny Depp play his character, and the soupy, fun plot. I feel asleep before the climax, though, which says something about weariness and piratical movies.
My nephew won third place at the Dallas Junior Open. In addition, his mom met some other parents who wish to get chess going in our area.
My chess club seems to be getting some "legs". I find that often happens--once one begins to do something, as if something existed, then somehow it seems to acquire an existence of its own. I rewrote the yahoo group mailing list I set up back in May, now that the list apparently may come alive.
I travel tonight to Los Angeles for a hearing tomorrow. This will be a busy week.
