Remember that Kevin Costner film, Field of Dreams? Everyone I know loved it, especially if they were from Iowa! It was filmed in Northern Iowa. Lots of Japanese baseball tourists and their cameras visited it. Even my wife and I visited it! It was a “clean movie” and an enjoyable one too. Sometimes one can just enjoy a movie without looking for man’s weaknesses…because those aren’t too hard to find.
Today I was reading CHESS LIFE FOR KIDS instead of CHESS LIFE. The editor does a very credible job. He took over as editor of Chess Life many years ago, for awhile. Glenn Petersen was his name (New Jersey). Did a good job too. He was one of a team of editors for the Atlantic Chess News.
Nowadays Chess News from around the country is handled by former USCF Exec. Director Al Lawrence. I would like to see various authors from various regions of the country who were not paid to promote friends or their particular interests. The experience of others can be fascinating would like to hear their stories. But I would like to hear chess secrets and stories from my own audience too. There’s some great stuff out there. Let me start digging. Or just drop me a line when you have a minute.

PS: I will contracting with a team of guys, for about $1100, to set up my website. If you would like to be a part of this idea and be willing to shell out $100, I will name that niche, after you. All I ask is to hear from you every couple weeks. If my pronouncements put you to sleep we’ll give you a shot at it. I will be right up front and tell you this will be a learning and experiencing website. I am doing it for the Chess Butler fans. Don’t be afraid. NO FEAR. Stuff for sale and fun….and discussion.
