Tiger wins, again.
Said best by Trent Warner on the PGA web page.
"that the most important Lesson Learned from the Buick Invitational is that steady is often better than spectacular"

Slow and steady wins the race.

Why do people with no chance of winning enter "The Race"?

SOTU fails.

The SOTU address didn't go over very well; it doesn't take a variety of pundits, online or elsewhere, to point out the scary grimaces on Condi Rice's face during the whole thing. It was painful to watch, I was grimacing too. I didn't realize it until my wife asked me what was wrong with my face. She has asked me that before just not in this context.

How dare he give such an address to the American people, as if we don't know better.

This link, thanks to Daily Kos, to a reporter who knows better.
Reality Check: Bush's State Of The Union Speech

Do you think they are laughing in the rest of the free world?

My Monday morning sidewalk full of ice.

Manning rallies Colts into Super Bowl

It hurts so good.

Cooper is blogging for choice.

Once they take away one choice it is only a matter of time before they all go.

Nothing more invigorating than getting up shortly after dawn to clear a driveway full of ice.

Have a good day.

Disappointing but not unexpected.

The unseasonable weathered we suffered from is gone at last.We have a slight chance of frozen precipitation this evening.

According to the Washington Post, "Republicans Halt Ethics Legislation".

Was there ever a chance in hell this was going to pass? Of course not. Republicans want to play it as if they didn't pass it because they wanted tougher legislation.Some people might even believe that fairytale.

Disappointing but not unexpected.

Coming out of the Amercian Idol closet.

Tonight is the premiere of American Idol.

I didn't want to ever have to admit this but my wife, a damn fine lawyer mind you, is addicted to this show. True she makes fun of it and knows it for what it is, but it doesn't stop her from making fast calls to home on evenings when she is not going to be home in time to view it.

So all I have to say is, here we go again.

The worst part about it is giving FOX the business, my wife feels bad about that.

There are dark little secrets in every family and I wanted to share mine with you today.
I feel better now that this is off my chest.

I nominated cooper's Darfur: An Unforgivable Hell on Earth. It's at the Koufax awards and it's a rather confusing place, but don't let that stop you.

I like blog awards more than most people, because they are fun. I have enjoyed cooper since that first comment I read of hers at Political Notio. I find some of things she writes at other blogs a week after she has written them in her wonderland blog. I wish she would promote her blogs more.

I'm waiting to move my blog totally over to wordpress for now, but read whichever one you like.

One more trip to Miami this week and then things settle down for me.


Finally got this straightened out.

Please relink to me at the wordpress site - Average Business Man, I think blogspot's day in the sun is over.

Football and roast beef today.

This blog has messed up recently. I don't have time to fool around with it I'm leaving in a couple of hours for four days of meetings, so excuse the mess.

Singh Wins Season Opener

Tiger didn't play but Singh won the season opener.

I've played three rounds of golf in the last several days. It is almost the middle of January so I am not complaining one bit.

Very busy week, I'll be in Miami for a day and then Austin.

Golf in the winter.

Blogger beta, or as I call it most of the time booger beta, is dead; it's now a whole new blogger. I haven't noticed a difference. I 'm still keeping my wordpress blog going, trying to get it established. As established as I'm ever going to be.

I congratulate Nancy Pelosi. Cooper has fireworks.

Don't miss Pia's three word Wednesday which is often on Friday.

Shayna finds out the gender of her baby today.

Yes, there is golf in the winter.

The weather here is like spring. I am playing tommorrow, it's supposed to hit seventy degrees.

I rasie my glass.

"The Democratic Party formally takes control of the US Congress today and will mark its return to power on Capitol Hill by introducing measures designed to curb the gifts and pet projects beloved of America's politicians."

Democrats promise ethics in Congress takeover

Not a moment too soon.

Nancy Pelosi will be sworn in today too.

"First, let's pause to recognize the historic significance of the first woman and first Californian to assume a position that will put her second in succession to the presidency of the United States."

I raise my glass.

Happy New Year

I made a few resolutions last year and the year before and surprisingly I kept most of them.

Last year at this time I was in the process of thinking about starting my own business, the time-line, within two years; it happened much quicker than that.

The resolution to play more golf panned out but this coming year, due to running my own business, the resolution has to change somewhat, so it is now “I will play as much golf as I possibly can while continuing to work my ass off to rope in clients and increase my income potential”.

I made a resolution to spend more time with my son which I did; this year he will learn to golf or at least be introduced to a plastic golf club. He’s already managed to break a couple of things while trying to handle one of my old golf clubs which brings me to another resolution. I will watch my son more carefully when he is in my sole charge.

That’s about it.
