All is fairly well here. I just saw you posted in a thread and thought I would check in with you. Hopefully you can pry yourself away from the political grind soon and make it back to Derby. Take care.
Thanks for the rep. I took your statement for exactly it's intended purpose...a joke. I've always enjoyed your posts. I'm going to make an attempt to make it up to the DCC this year before I deploy for a day. Maybe we can share a brew and you can commiserate about the Euro's inability to keep pace with the Americans this year.
Thanks for the rep. Not sure what I said to deserve it but thanks so much! Wish I could join you at the Derby City. Perhaps next year. Have a safe trip both here and going home. Incidentally, I worked for five years as a sales representative for Tandberg Electronics of Norway. Hope you are familiar with them. Great products.
No problem about the pattern racking hatred. I hate it too. I also hate it when one guy runs 5 and it's boring as hell. I want 10 ball or alternate racks or something. I also come across badly all the time to people that don't know me. I'm REALLY a very nice person.
The Europeans, I've been around are not only great players they are also a credit to the game. I've sat rooting for some of them myself. I was also fortunate enough to beat Thourston Holman, not sure of the spelling, at Turning stone Casino, a while back.
Glad to see you liked my thread. I've also been very involved in promoting the game. I was very involved in the All about Pool Tour, which is now the Joss tour, from the very beginning. I'm also very involved in the New England Pool and Billiard Hall of Fame. i don't know if Europe has anything for it's pool or snooker players. Maybe it should start something?
I've also written a fiction novel, Right on Cue. I sent a copy to Big Dave at Pro9.co.uk. I asked if he would list it in his on-line library. I never heard back. I don't get it.
Sorry to hear about your medical problems. I've had a bad back, for years. I suffer when I'm done. The adrenalin, gets me through it.
