Odds and Ends,Thoughts and News

On the Faldo health front, I think the best analogy is that of a car with an annoying engine noise. And every time you take it to the repair shop they say, “Sorry, we don’t hear it.” Although it is good I go back into perfect heart rhythm often, sometimes I am in when I need to be out for testing! Frustrating.

While Faldo is encouraged with the return to average of the turnout in our league, I still wonder about the loss of player – whether they only played for a short while or were here for years. I always ask, was there something I could have done better or differently? I am sure most of the time it is just not their cup of tea or just not a good fit time-wise. But still I wonder.

I built a new driver for the upcoming golf season. No issues with my current one. I usually hit it pretty straight and although I will never win a long drive contest, I’m long enough to get by (twss). But I do hit a line drive - drive. Much like my softball days, it is usually a - line drive up the middle. If the fairway is wet, has a hazard in front or is uphill (twss), this becomes an issue. My new 12 degree driver (same head design as the current one (twss)), should add height and even assist with working the ball off the tee. I have to remove a club to carry two drivers (14 is the legal limit you know), and I may consider removing my 13 degree 3-wood. Maybe I can hit the second driver off the deck! It will be a fun challenge this upcoming year.

By the way, as an added bonus, Faldo will build or repair your clubs at no labor cost to all NPP players.

My job is transferring from North East to North West. About the same commute time wise, but a little longer (twss). Just happy to be able to need to make the commute. At least I am no longer a squinter.

Our nation is on the verge of being temporarily saved from destruction. The House passed the bill to repeal Obamacare. The bill now moves to the Senate, where Democrat chairman Harry Reid is unconstitutionally trying to block a vote on the bill at all. Why, you may ask?

Because it is a no win situation three ways for the Socialist-Communist Democrats. If Reid blocks the vote, the public will learn the Democrats act like dictators when their desires are not those of the American people.

If there is a vote, the three or four dozen Democrat Senators up for re-election will be forced to vote on the record - again - FOR this unconstitutional Obamacare. They don’t want that.

Third, if only four Democrat senators somehow turn back into Americans from the traitors they have been (even if it is just to save their cushy job), and the Repeal Obamacare Bill passes the Senate – then Obama will either have to sign the bill to kill his greatest "acheivement (disaster more like it)" or veto the bill to stop the end of Obamacare.

In front of the entire nation, the sitting president will have to veto a bill that 70% of the American people want passed. Hang on to your helmets – hell, get a helmet -if that happens.

On the poker side, Faldo’s play and finish last Tuesday basically sums up how it is going this month on the virtual felt. Nothing is rolling right now. Although not bleeding cash, it has been a steady drip of small loses. Here is to hoping it will turn around by the end of the month.

It is cold outside!

How cold is it you ask?

It is so cold out that I saw a democrat with his hands in his OWN pockets.
