  • I Hope You Are Here When I Return

    Hi Folks,

    Here is a key section of my most recent blog:

    . . . throughout [my lessons with Dave 'The Langolier and reaching over $2200 in 8 months playing Zoom] my ill-health was always looming until I had no choice but to have life-saving surgery which has affected my memory and left me with temporary paralysis on one side of my body. As part of my recovery, physical therapy included using what I am so familiar with, the computer. I had a very brief few days when I even made money playing Zoom but over time I was playing my game with ‘fun money’ but my results have remained depressing. Hence I have decided that I need not push myself to the point of despair. So for now, and for those who still remember me, I take a temporary leave of absence.

    For the full blog, see:

      Hi Ellen

      I'm praying for your health. Lavender is a great ointment for aching muscles /..also Bicarbonate of Soda.. not baking powder.. will reverse the effects in your brain. I use it all round my home and take a spoon of Cayenne Pepper every so often.. GOD bless

            Poker can be such a harsh game sometimes, so I've really enjoyed reading all the positive thing you've had to say about your experiences with poker Dr. Ellen - which were reminders to me of all the things there are to like about poker, when sometimes I was experiencing all the stuff that was not so great

            And it's been so nice of you to take the time to leave so many supportive messages under so many peoples' blogs - it's contributions like these to PSO that's made this such a nice place to be, with people like you in it.

            Hope you're on the mend, and will be feeling much better soon Dr. Ellen!!

                Hey Doc,

                I had not read about this taking some time out but on seeing your message on twitter about writing a new book on bridge, I'm a bit late on seeing you are going through. As you take these steps forward in your life, please know that I wish you well and our paths cross again soon.
