Netherlands, Bussum, Jan. 2013

Each morning my first activity is a look at the chess moves my internet opponents have thought out for me during the night. Each morning I hope that it will be a good morning for me!

How nice...with your morning activity..I do puzzels the first thing in the morning.
Sometimes it wakes me and sometimes not... Your morning activity is much more
difficult than mine....
Well presented - as long as we can have a smile the day will be a good one.

It's always good to have something to look forward to in the mornings...mine is much more mundane - my porridge with blueberries:)) I hope all your mornings are good.....

I'm not surprised that you start the day with an intellectual exercise of sorts. I guess all of us have some kind of routine, even if (in my case) we don't think we have one. Sometime, I have a cup of coffee in front of the computer. I don't drink coffee every day although health studies suggest that two cups every day would be good for us. Sometimes I read the newspaper...the pages I didn't finish the night before! Aren't we fortunate to have reached the point in our lives that we don't have to rush off to work first thing in the morning.
Peter.....I don't see a cup of coffee (or tea) in this photo! I suppose a glass (or two) of red wine offer health benefits as well.........so THEY say. :-)

Does your chess brain work well in the morning? I used to think my brain worked better at night but the number of times I pick up a crossword the next morning I was struggling with the night before and the answers seem obvious!

My brain wouldn't be in gear for this first thing in the morning Peter....but then Mathematicians brains work differently to mine, especially early in the day...I do crosswords,codewords and sudocu to keep the old grey matter working, but later in the day.

Larry, first of all, wine should be enjoyed with dinner, not early in the morning!
The reason for my chess exercise is that I rise about an hour earlier than my wife and since we always have breakfast together, it is an ideal time to play my chess games in spite of the lack of cofffee or tea.

Ruth, I play so many chess games at a time (about 20), that winning and loosing is part of a weekly experience (in average a game takes 30 moves and we play about two moves a day). A better norm to list ones chess performance is the rating you get. In this screen picture the rating of the players is specified below the (nick)name of the players.

A most admirable way to start the day, Peter, but I would need at least a cup of coffee while I was doing it!
