I'm super excited about how this turned out! I took @alicat_ dad's old chess table, took out the original chess board and put in a new solid surface board with a walnut border. The original board was starting to fall apart and needed to be replaced so Alison and I came up with a new design! The old table also needed some refinishing to seal it and make it ready for use! I really enjoy working on stuff like this #woodworking#chess
Прочёл хорошую книгу от удивительного и гениального во многом автора. Людям , заинтересованным в своём развитии и родителям, в особенности маленьких шахматистов - must read. Некоторые моменты с моей точки зрения преувеличены, при этом ценные мысли, конечно есть! #развитие#номер1#чемпион#шахматы#chess#champion#наукапобеждать
Want to know how I know as much as I do about ANYTHING? Whether it is about chemistry, gravity, astrology, gyroscopic experiments, the origin of different dominions of divinity, (such as the belief in Osiris, Ra, Allah, Obelisk, Horus and Jesus) or marketing or politics? Its because I do this! I read! The more that I read is the more that I know. I'm able to instinctively look at different things in multiple perspectives in a heartbeat in order to come up with the best solution.
If you cant even tell me what the capital of Tennessee is, we can't be friends. I naturally don't get along with people that don't and/or refuse to learn more. You cannot progress in your comfort zone. #knowyourworth#knowledge#knowledgeispower#smart#intellectuals#intellect#chess#reading#library#egypt#science

Never give up on what you really want to do, the person with big dreams is more powerful than one with all the facts. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Had an epiphany after finishing this game of chess . Started badly and lost a piece in the opening, soon the opponent Queen was wreaking havoc and destroyed my position and annihilated most of my pawns. I thought about resignation, but decided to hang on a little, see if he slips up somewhere, and he did! I eventually won, but the bigger victory is the life lesson I was reminded of; "No matter how things have gone for you, hang in there, stay focused, keep pressing, keep following your dreams, the tide can turn any second. Never, ever give up! "
