Happy Christmas All

The BBC wonders about how common a white Christmas is in the United Kingdom. Well, it just so happens that around about the same time in 1970, it snowed during the famous Hastings Congress. In fact, they have the picture to prove it.

Anyway, on that note, I hope you, dear readers, will have a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. It's been another fun year in 2009. And to all those participating in the upcoming Aussie Chess Championships: Good Luck!

I played at Hastings in 1970. We parked the car on the first day and returned for it on the last day. It was covered with 6 feet of snow!
