"38" my new low for 9 holes today

It was a balmy 65* today and went out with the blue tee blitz today.  Had 3 bogeys on the front with 6 pars for a 38!  Wooohooo!  On the back started off fine par, bogey but then ran into a stretch of triple, bogey, double, bogey, double to kill my run at breaking 80.  Finished with an 86 nice round for the 3rd one I got in this year.

Superbowl Scramble Tourney

Played at my clubs Superbowl Party / Golf Tournament on Sunday.  The format is 6 points for eagle, 3 points birdie, 1 point for par, and -2 points for bogie.  It was a mild day in the low 60's and sunny.  There was steady wind blowing all day and there were tough pin placements.  Scoring was tough we ended up with 43 points and we also had low gross but came in second place.  It was a good time, kind of frustrating as we left enough points to run away with the thing out on the course.  I had been working on my iron swing to try and drive through the ball and not scoop it.  I have been working on slowing my transition down and holding wrist lag through the ball.  I was keeping track of my iron shots and had 1 duffed shot and 5 that flew over greens the rest were either on the greens or just off.  Really happy with the results especially since I have been so busy with work and not getting much practice time.

A new friend for our family!

Well we wanted to find a senior dog for our house to befriend our daughter and existing 9 year old Dacshund.  We were checking the local shelters, newspaper, craigs list and then googled.  Found  They had several potential dogs.  I checked the classifieds and found an owner that needed to find a home for a 6 year old Dacshund.  Wow!  Just what we wanted.  So after contacting and emailing the owner we decided that we would adopt Humphrey.  We received him on December 21st and Cece thought it was a perfect Christmas Present.  We decided that Humphrey didn't fit so we are calling him Bär or Baer (German for Bear).  He was slightly overweight (8 pounds) and he checked out great at the Vet.  Also he fit right in our house.  He took about a week to get comfortable.  At first he was really laid back and was just soaking it all in but now he is just such a great little guy to have around.  He took imediately to Cece and they are best buddies now.  If Cece goes outside with out him he starts crying.  Its great to have a wonderful pet like Bär!

Goodbye little buddy

Our youngest mini dachshound has been battling cushings disease. He took a turn for the worse this past week and we had to have him put to sleep. He was my daughters favorite puppy because he loved attention and let her lay on him, drag him around, chew on him. He just accepted her and barely ever complained.

Rest In Peace. Wolfy we love you!

I was on one of my favorite hardware sights and came across some post about loading Mac OSX on PC's.  So I thought I got some free time and it doesn't cost me any hardware to try out.  Wow I like it.  It took me 2 tries to get it installed I ended up using iDeneb 1.3 install package on a C2D e6600 on a 650I motherboard with 8800GTS 320meg video card using onboard sound and network.  The network is the only real issue I have as Apple doesn't officially support the product as of yet.  Now with their new introduction of Mac Books using nVidia hardware it should get better.  I have been looking at picking up a Mac mini to sit next to my monitor to support and learn the OS.  So far so good.

Barack Wins!

Wow! I went to vote 3 times yesterday the last time showing up at the polling place around 5 and getting out about 8:45 after news agencies had already call SC for Senator McCain. Gee thanks guys! I can't understand their fascination with trying to be the first to "call" a state. imbeciles at the media outlets wanting to create news for viewer ship and ratings revenue never mind American's exercising their rights as American's.

Gratz to President Elect Barack now lets get America growing again.

Demo Custom Stamped Putter

I received a demo putter from Chris over at Sunset Beach Golf. I picked a 34.5" Wrightsville with torch finish. Chris sent it to me completely wrapped in small cell foam packaging. It was packed so well it took me 5 minutes to get it out of the box and wrapping. All I have to say is WOW the torch finish is so much nicer to look at in person.  


Feel is really nice and it has a great click sound when the ball is struck.  I have only played 9 holes twice with the putter so I don't have the speed down completely with it.  The weighting on this putter seems to help close the face versus my Betternadi putter where it sits more open and stays open.  I have to give this one a thumbs up and now need to talk my wife into getting me one for Christmas.  The best part is having them stamp and paint fill what you want your putter to say.
