Golf and Snow

I was stunned yesterday when Tiger was ousted from
match play thereby ending his streak, Ogilvy is looking good to take it all right now.

From Tiger's Streak Ends in Stunning Fashion

“Only after Woods struck his putt did he notice the ball mark he neglected to repair, which he said caused the ball to bump slightly off line to the right and slide by the cup. One hole later, O'Hern made a 12-foot par putt that sent Woods home without a trophy on the PGA Tour for the first in more than seven months.”


The ice pellets we were supposed to have did not materialize, instead we have a couple inches of snow and it looks like it had no plans of stopping any time soon. What a end of Febrary surprise. Another two hours will be wasted getting this stuff off of the drive in the morning.

Not my gamer

All eyes on the match in Arizona as Tiger tries for number eight.

In other news, there is other news besides golf - "Colangelo-Bryan, a lawyer representing several of the detainees, said: "The court of appeal has said it is perfectly legal to lock men up for ever without even a hint of due process."

My wifes parents came in to town this weekend.

Tell me what a three year old need a gaming system for again?
It goes without saying we had to tell them it was inapproriate and we wanted them to bring it back. We are thinking age ten or so maybe a gaming system will be approriate but not for now.

I like to call it unaware instead of stupid.

Happy Weekend

I hope everyone has a great weekend.

It looks like no golf for me this weekend but things look good for next week being a big melt.

We enjoyed the discounted chocolates from the day after Valentine's. The truth is we didn't get around during the day due to the weather.

The House has officially resolved against the troop surge, so where does it go from here?

Very tired, with a busy social weekend coming up.

I wish you all well this weekend.

Bill Maher resumes tonight.

Happy Valentine's Day

I’m going to say it.

Happy Valentine’ s Day.

We have a lot of ice and snow, everything is canceled, my wife is working at home as am I. I just spent two hours de-icing the drive.

So far we have not lost electricity and I have to take advantage of that fact because chances are it will happen.

Blogger bite my butt.

Over the next two weeks I will stop posting at this site altogether and go completely to the wordpress site I began some months ago, the link is on the sidebar.

I case you can't see the sidebar because you are either blind or not so smart here is the link o the newer Average Businessman.

I stayed here because I had some kind of page rank but it is not worth it to me because blogger is notoriously unworthy and often non functional and I like the wordpress dot com platform a lot so I am moving there permanently.

The Anna Nicole Smith story is tragic and I want to leave it alone and wish they all would.

We had a conference with my sons preschool teacher yesterday. Since when do you need conferences for preschool anyway?

The teacher said, and I quote more or less, " your son is quite bright; he is either going to be a leader of his peers or he is going to need to be handled with great care because he will be out of control."

All this because the kids in the school follow him around and do what he does but he sometimes gets "crazy" and does things to make them "laugh and carry on".

He is not quite four years old, I am not sure what they expect but I thought it was pretty ridiculous. I almost started to laugh, my wife did start to laugh, but she covered it well.

For the women for the world.
Harvard to Name First Female President in History of University

First Harvard then the country???

Shayna came back to let us know she was ok. A relief that was.

I link to A Few Minor Details to help cooper spread the word.

The Bizarre and the Stupid.

jealousy is a horrible thing but you can't make this stuff up.

I don't understand how these tapes got out but Arnold seems smarter on these tapes than I gave him credit for. ;)

Turner broadcasting is going to be paying the city of Boston for their "error in judgement".

Lets get serious here.

One of the comments from the above highlighted post by Gina Serpe ("Turner Pays for Boston "Bombing") at E-online says it for me.

"I have to agree with Poorgarby on this one. This is a sad sad day for America. The ignorant people who called these in as bombs should be fined! Why not first fine television shows such as 24 for giving ideas to people who might want to become a terrorist? Not saying anything against is a great show. Wake up America...Fear is how people control you...As a President Roosevelt said "The only thing to fear is fear itself."

No more debate

For those who are not caught up the debate on Global Warming is Over.

Hear that OVER.

I'm glad that only took twenty years.

I'm taking the Colts Sunday.

Seven Points.

True Dat thoughts at Darfur and Unforgettable Hell on Earth -Travesty, Politics, comments and Darfur is still Dying.

The ground-hog assured us we won't have to suffer much longer. I hope he is right, it's only eh third weekend I have been unable to play gold all winter and I don't like it one bit.

I wish Shayna would come back to let us know how she it.

Early Spring

Blogger wasn't working for me yesterday so that post is only at the wordpress blog

I encourage all five people who have me linked to change their links to the wordpress blog.

Groundhog Punxsutawney Phil Predicts an Early Spring in U.S.

I bet that was difficult given this.

Looks like we'll be having an early spring from now on and it's a damn shame.

I should be happy about this because it will help with my golf game, but looking at my son and thinking of what his generation and the generation after him will have to pay for past mistakes makes me sad.
