Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.
Holy Cross School had a visit from one of the Comfort Dogs in training this morning. Tobias is in the process of learning how to let people pet him and not be distracted by his surroundings. He is a doll.
The write in votes for the Collinsville school board election have been counted and Dennis Craft received the most votes and will now be a member of the board. The 3 candidates who were on the actual ballet, Gary Clark, Wayne White, Jane Soehlke, will also be on the board.
This may come as a surprise but competing in a game which requires sitting for hours on end, but also intense physical workouts for some teams.
Webster University has a championship chess team and "coach Susan Polgar has her team combine chess and Crossfit, the popular high-intensity workout that mixes Olympic-style weightlifting, gymnastics, calisthenics and other exercises, to build strength in both mind and body."
It must be working because the chess team has never given up its No. 1 ranking in Division I college chess since its inception in 2012, and it has won the last two Final Four Championships and three PanAm InterCollegiate Championships.
