Cheers Joe. I don't want to bore you all with my thoughts and feelings, though. They'd seem like nothing to you, I bet.

Thaks, but it's not to do with the chess. Actually, I exceeded my expectations today, not that I really care too much how I do, anyway.

Today I went to Spain (Verín) to collect fliers and info about the St James Way (Camino de Santiago) at the Tourism Office.

I really hope this is happening next Spring. I need to convince a couple of friends though.

It's so lovely. I have an idea, we can buy it and explore it. Mke it a rural hotel!

Look at this: American surfer in Nazaré, Portugal yesterday

I turned on my TV and heard Anderson Cooper talked about Portugal. And saw this pic. They were talking about this surfer whom AC did a "60 minutes" segment of him trying to break world record there. He was with this surfer there whole day on a jet ski and being an idiot he did not wear sunglasses which ended up temporary blinded in one eye because the UV reflected from water burnt his right eye.

I take it the surfer was in Nazaré for sometimes as AC was not there a few days ago.

I just feel that they didn't explore all the areas of Lincoln's personality. For instance, there was hardly anything with regards to the strong evidence that he was a racist. I believe, and understand why, this film was made to cater for twenty-first century Americans, and how they want to view Lincoln. I believe it isn't accurate, or at least displaying the full picture.

It's an interesting and thought provoking piece of cinema, nonetheless.
One of the most compelling things about the personality of Lincoln was that he learned and grew and changed his whole life. He was not an easy man to sum up and certainly not one to dismiss with easy phrases as his detractors did during his lifetime and do now as well.

Certainly he grew up in a racist country. He knew no black people as he was growing up. But his father had moved from Kentucky to Illinois to escape slavery although his own family had owned slaves. There he eked out a living as a subsistence farmer and worked Lincoln very very hard.

It's not just a legend that LIncoln studied in a log cabin by candle light. He had very little formal schooling. He educated himself.

But from his early days he opposed slavery. He debated Stephen Douglas on the issue of allowing each new state to decide whether it be free or slave when there were few who wanted to take on the task of debating the foremost debater of the day. This is where Lincoln made his famous speech that if it were a central right for men to decide for themselves on slavery then the black man also had to be consulted. Lincoln said of course if the Negro were not a man he need not have a voice and his voice rang out "But If he be a man" he also must have the freedom to choose a slavery or freedom.

But he at first did not favor freed slaves living in the united states. He thought they had been so degraded and traumatized by slavery that neither whites or former slaves could live in comfort with one another. He thought the solution was for black people to return to Africa. He carried this idea into the White House. However, his time in the White House changed him. He discussed this idea with abolitionists both black and white. After these discussions he realized he was wrong. HIs years in the presidency helped him grow. But at heart he was a conciliator and hated violence. Even as a frontiersman, he never hunted because after killing an animal as a boy, he could not stomach it. He recognized the terrible irony that he was sending thousands to their deaths. He searched for many ways to end slavery and to end the war. He had many ideas that today sound heartless, e.g. phasing out slavery over a 40 year period. But, he gave up on each of those.

Perhaps it is the judgment of Fredrick Douglas that we should honor. Douglas had met all the great abolitionists of the day. He said that no other white man but Lincoln had made him feel an equal. He cherished Lincoln.

Congratulations on the chess.

Frankly, I always thought being a teenager was crappy. I had darker thoughts then than I ever had in the rest of my life. Hang in there. Grown up life is lots better.

AC with his eyes is for sure going to have cataracts if not macular degeneration.
