The Campaign For DA


Man, That Was Miserable

As I was freezing hitting golf balls on the driving range before 8:00 a.m., one of my buddies said, "At least we know this is as bad as it is gonna be." "Right," I replied.


It was cold, but bearable, before 10:00 a.m and then the winds kicked up violently and we froze the rest of the way. It's not fun when you're wishing you were on the 18th tee box instead of the 12th. I don't remember any weather person warning me about wind. In fact, I specifically remember seeing "5-10 mph. NE" a couple of days ago. Uggh.

But my round was pretty much mid-season form for my first day of golf of the year. Threw together a couple of pars - I got the "stop posing" comment from one of my foursome after a tee shot that almost made me weep with joy, and then at other times I was the worst golfer in the history of ever: Slice out of bounds, duff it with a 7 iron making it go 20 yards, tee off at a right angle.

Edit: An the picture has nothing to do with my day other than both involve golf.

Barry have you ever played at the Cliffs? If not it is a must, man this course is beatiful.

Another sign of global warming. Try making a hat out of tin foil like AlGore.

7:20 and other wing-nutz - the temperature on any given day indicates only the temperature on that day. Global warming is a planet-wide trend that in various ways causes these unusual variations in temps. The most significant warming has occurred nearer the poles - not the mid latitudes where we live. I'll not try to educate you here about how that significant warming near the poles will have drastic world-wide affects. It matters not in the slightest that today or tomorrow is cold or hot - the planet is warming and we and our children will all be feeling the effects.

Came across this photo myself a few days ago. Almost posted it as a "wtf?!" comment, but then thought I'd let you have it. Funny stuff....
