Dan CorkillWelcome to my personal web pages. (Umass-related information can be found at http://cics.umass.edu/~corkill).
I listen to a lot of music, mostly rock and popular songs from the early '60s onward. I enjoy singing, too: in Amherst LSSE's very casual Come As You Are Chorus and with the significantly larger Rock Voices. I briefly “toured” with Barry Manilow (sang in his backup choir at Foxwoods in March 2015).

Three-Player “Dummy Hand” Spades
I enjoy playing card games, especially Contract & Duplicate Bridge and Spades. Sometimes it's hard to find a fourth for these games, and I've become particularly fond of “Dummy Hand” Spades, a 3-player, cut-throat version of regular 4-player Spades.
