I wish all of my readers a Happy Thanksgiving season. Think of all the simple joys in life--such as playing chess. Also be thankful for the family and friends that you have. And in this time of economic hardship, be thankful for the roof over your head.
A few of you may have noticed that I took a brief break from posting on the blog. Don't worry, I'll be more active again very soon. Stay tuned for daily coverage of the Bay Area Chess Thanksgiving festival beginning on Friday. Be there!
