Why chess has been on the back burner

Three weeks ago my life changed:

Her name is Ella.

I do have a couple of chess related posts in the queue. One from guest blogger Hank. Another a review (finally) of Zuke 'Em. Sleep deprivation is sort of kicking my butt right now, but when I equilibrate I'll post again.

Looks like she is already thinking:"No daddy, the other pawn".

Often she gets a look on her face of intense deliberation, a look that could easily be interpreted as deciding on a move in a key position.

Inevitably that face means she has gas. :)

Holy Smokes BDK!

From reading your posts in other places I pictured you as one of my old wise professors in their late 50's. Didn't know you were just becoming a daddy.

God Bless (if that's okay to a materialist).
