  1. Good to hear about Tigger. My guy has gotten pretty deaf as he has gotten old (somewhere between 13 & 15) and only notices if they are really close.
  2. I immediately thought of Alex when this flashed up on my phone earlier. Not sure if he is anywhere near there.
  3. Is an enhanced driver’s license available? That’s what my son has. His passport needs renewing too.
  4. We went through a hellacious downpour near St. Albans around 5:30. Almost had to pull over. Didn’t last long though.
  5. Made a impromptu trip to Ottawa this weekend. We had no plans and May son and I hadn’t been to Canada in nearly 3 years and never to Ottawa. Of course I forgot completely about filling out the ArriveCAN health app. We had to download that at the border crossing in Alburg Springs, VT. Barely one bar of cell service and no wifi. Took over half an hour at the crossing just to do that. Anyway, Ottawa seems nice. It’s all dressed up for Canada day. The whole city seemed to be out on the streets for the fireworks, which we missed because we got here late.
  6. The air fryer is nice to use so you don’t heat up the entire kitchen.
  7. If something could be pulled together, I would definitely entertain bringing my weak ass game down for a round.
  8. Surprised you’re not whining about it being too cold.
  9. I was down to a 13 handicap at one point but it was built on a lot of 9 hole rounds of 40-42 at my home course. Those combine for low 80’s and look better than they are. Even though my course has a decent slope & rating, my handicap doesn’t travel that well. There are real benefits to know where you can miss and how the greens roll.
  10. We do that in our mens league. The number of points you need to win a point is based on your handicap.
  11. Make sure you get a top of the line camcorder when you get a new one
  12. What are people's personal par scores? My home 9-hole course is a par 35. I consider my "personal" par to be bogey golf or 44. When I play really well, I can break 40 when I play decently it's between 40 and 45 and anything over that I consider to be a pretty crappy performance. Do others think of scoring in those terms? Am I just "settling" for bogey golf?
  13. I did the same thing in Maine once. The sent me a bill for $2 in the mail. When we drove west last year, I bought an EZPass transponder from a vending machine at a service center on the NY State Thruway. It was $25 but that money went into your account when you created it. It was accepted on all the toll roads we used for the rest of the trip. I still have the transponder and have both cars on the account so on the rare occasion we drive on a toll road, it's covered.
  14. More progress tonight. Shot a 41 (+6) with 2 brutal lipped out putts. I’m still not hitting my irons crisply but my driver was decent and I was chipping well. Most importantly, I won money for low gross in our Tuesday night group.
  15. It’s a good tip. Now if only I could find that type of accuracy and touch.
  16. Last summer we did the Black Hills and Yellowstone. I was thinking of doing Glacier this year but I am now considering flying to Calgary and doing Banff and Jasper.
  17. I think I started to figure a few things out last night. I think I was standing too erect. That meant just couldn’t make decent contact. Still a ways to go to feel decent about how I’m playing. It seems like I go through some variation of this every year. Play well a few weeks and then hit a wall where something goes wrong and I can’t play a decent round to save my life. Hopefully I’m getting back on track.
  18. Temps are comfortable here but apparently Sensor #6 on my weather station is located somewhere much warmer
  19. To be fair, hey don't like any American ownership.. My cousins over there are more into rugby and my mother grew up a ManU fan. I came to Liverpool the first year NBC started carrying the EPL. They had a preseason show featuring Liverpool sort of like Hard Knocks on HBO. I've liked them ever since but I don't come with the traditional fan baggage.
  20. As a fan, I'm pretty good with their ownership. 1st EPL title in 30 years, Champion's League title and 2 other UCL finals, FA Cup and League Cup this year. Could be worse.
  21. I wish I had been paying attention to the schedule. I might have made a trip over to watch a day. I've been to the PGA Tour stop in Hartford a few times and the smooth tempo is what always impressed me. I like watching that tournament on television and knowing the holes pretty well.
  22. They did and it has improved some but it still isn't very comfortable.
  23. The thing is, I enjoy baseball in person so much more than on television. I actually used to like going up to watch the Expos at Olympic Stadium. Pay $7 CDN for the cheapest upper deck seats and just walk down to better seats. The atmosphere was meh but it was comfortable enough and cheap. I saw Pedro strike out 14 against the Tigers in the first season of interleague play. It was a pitchers duel, Justin Thompson gave up 1 run on 5 hits, striking out 7. Great game
  24. Ironically, FSG has done a tremendous job expanding and improving Anfield, Liverpool's home stadium, while keeping the historic nature.
