  1. Sorry to start the day on a down note, but Mom A has taken a turn for the worse. Yesterday she stopped eating or drinking anything, so unless God decides to work a miracle (which, of course, He can), this will only end one way, and the only question is how long it will take. But she has lived a good, long life, and she has a strong faith in Jesus Christ, so I know she'll be all right. Plus, she has talked for some time about how much she misses Dad, so that promises to be a wonderful reunion. She'll get to see her father, who died when she was three, and that will be awesome, too. And of course, she will see the glory of heaven, which I'm sure is beyond our ability to understand while we're on earth.

    Your prayers continue to be appreciated.

    1. My wife lost her mother last year about this time. What I learned from that is that you can prepare for a loved one's death, but no one is ever ready for it to happen.
      Peace and love and comfort with you and your family during this time.

    1. We played pretty well, winning our first two and losing on the last shot of game 3 to get eliminated. We did not run into Arlig, although all three teams we played were from St. Paul. Its a nice club and the ice was decent, but from what I understand the Duluth curling club screwed over both SPCC and Four Seasons this weekend by deciding to have a spiel when they normally wouldn't, so the Four Seasons spiel only had 5 teams registered, so they cancelled and those five teams came down to the International. As a result, this spiel felt pretty unorganized, which is a bummer considering it was the most expensive spiel I've ever been to by far. Plus the hospitality was very lacking. There was an older guy that was very clearly upset that we were there until they made us leave at midnight. Friday was a little better, but Saturday he came to our table at 11 and gruffly indicated we'd better have our uber to pick us up by midnight. I'm not sure I'll spiel at that club again, to be honest.

      On a more positive note, my mom and step dad were able to come down to watch our 1:30 draw, so that was nice.

      1. That's a bummer.

        You'll have to come to Chaska. I've never curled anywhere else but they have a good reputation. It's the training ice for the Olympic hopefuls.

        1. I've got Chaska and Frogtown on my list of MN clubs I'd like to get to. We're doing the Wauwatosa men's in a couple weeks and out of the clubs I've been to, it is the gold standard in making sure you have a good time. The ice is bad, but the hospitality is top notch.

  2. One of our competitors was hit with a major ransomware attack last week. The word is that the hackers were state-sponsored and the FBI is actively involved in the investigation. Considering the warnings that have been coming from federal law enforcement, I'm guessing it was China. Until recently, my first guess would have been Russia.

      1. OAA had him at +4 in RF and -1 in CF. 2022 was similar (+1 in CF versus -1 in RF) while 2021 he was well above average at +3 in CF and +10 in RF plus another +5 in LF. Seems like a reasonable backup at this point.

    1. I feel like I've mentioned this here before, but I was enjoying a brew before my flight there once and there was a very intoxicated young lady sitting next me. Naturally, she was very chatty. Eventually I found out her flight was leaving in about 10 minutes on another end of the airport, so I convinced her to leave and helped rush her to the gate. Got her there just in time and politely refused her attempt to make out. Vegas, baby!
