Down The Road

I am pulling together a list of topics to address in longish weekly posts. Currently I am planning to cover the reasons I, and people with whom I have spoken about the profession, teach; tenure (expect a little background in this one); and my definition of learning. I would love to get suggestions for other education-related topics from others out there, so feel free to leave them in comments.

More Points

Well, we hit a sectional down near Olympia this week (we have no more tournaments to play in the area until early December), and in evening sessions last night and tonight snatched up 0.43 Silver and 0.79 Silver respectively. Something happened, and we are not quite sure what it is, but since moving up here we have been on fire at the bridge tables.

The wonderful part about all of this is that we are getting asked by top-placing partnerships if we are available to round out teams. When the afternoon overall winners (claiming a bottle of wine) approach us with interest in having us on their team, it is more than a little flattering. Now, if we could just work out what we were doing properly.
