  1. Looking forward to seeing who else is playing and the first round results!
  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! @vandyland
  3. 5:30am Monday 1/17/2022 before sinking the shovel into snow for clearing the overnight snowfall. 12 inches at this point. Went out again at 2:30pm to clear the next 9 inches, it was a fine snow that was falling at 1" an hour continuously, and just finished before the winds picked up to sculpt and drift what was on the ground. Final clearing at 5pm took off another 3 inches. This morning another 2 inches from the overnight but the plow had placed a good 5 foot swath of slush-turned-heavy packed snow by the street and shoveling the 8 inch barrier had to be done to get the cars out without problems for those who work away from the house. Makes telework a beauty to behold and my vehicle is the only one still insulated with the snowfall total on top. I think the tee times will be delayed... Go Bills!
  4. The splash is about the debut of the phone app for checkout, they have had the Veteran discount for years as I was using it before I was aware of Lowes doing the same thing. I preferred the old way of showing proof of service and the entry of phone # aka the old way for getting the discount. Always appreciated is the checkout clerk's thank you for service (should be thank you for sacrifice but not going to be rude when someone is being kind). And yes I wait for checkout since I don't work there and will not self-checkout since they are not about to extend an employee discount for my purchases. Something else that Home Depot does it have a reserved parking spot for Veterans next to the Handicap spots in front of the store.
  5. I've played with people who stand over their ball that long.
  6. Happy Birthday Spies!!! @edingc, @scooterhd2, @gobama84 and @MattF's son Connor
  7. Two friends are at a day long golf seminar listening to a speaker. friend 1: "Will you bet me $100 that I'll slap the man in front of me?" friend 2: "Yes" friend 1: - slaps the man from behind, the man turns quickly - friend 1: "Hi Mike, long time no see!" man in front: "Excuse me? I'm not Mike." friend 1: "That's odd, from behind you look like Mike." man in front: "But I'm not Mike." friend 1: "Right. I'm truly sorry." - Friend 2 pays friend 1 the 100$. friend 1: "Will you bet another 100$ that I'll slap the same man again?" friend 2: "Yes." friend 1: - slaps the man from behind, the man turns again - friend 1: "You always say that you're not Mike but you're Mike, isn't that right, Mike?" man in front: "I swear I'm not Mike." friend 1: "I'm truly sorry." - Friend 2 pays friend 1 the 100$. friend 1: "Do you bet another 100$ that I'll slap the same man for the third time?" friend 2: "Yes." friend 1: - slaps the man from behind, the man turns again - friend 1: "I'm sure you're Mike, show me your ID." man in front: "Dude I'm not Mike. Do it again and I call the cops!" He then changes his place to a far spot a few rows across the auditorium. - Friend 2 pays friend 1 the 100$. friend 1: "Do you bet another 100$ that I'll go all the way over there and slap the same man again?" friend 2: "Yes!" friend 1: - goes to the man's new place, slaps him from behind and says : "Mike! you're here? I've been slapping a man over there thinking he's you!"
  8. Like every YouTuber he has to produce content and generate traffic. He just reached the 2 million subscriber mark and that has to get into serious remuneration. Take everything with a grain of salt and all that. What one thing he recommended that does work is how to hit out of sand, taking the sand around and under the ball out with the club face so the ball is lifted out with it and that was the first piece of advice that has worked every time when the sand is not packed so taking that to the bank.
  9. A guy walks into a golf resort bar and notices a very large jar on the counter that is filled to the brim with $10 bills. He guesses there must be thousands of dollars in it. As the bartender welcomes him, he asks, "What's with the jar?" The bartender says, "Well, you pay $10 and if you pass three tests, you get all the money.” The man certainly wasn't going to pass this up. "What are the three tests?" "Pay first. Those are the rules," says the bartender. So the man gives him the $10 and the bartender drops it into the jar. "O.K.," the bartender says. "Here's what you need to do: First, you have to drink an entire gallon of pepper tequila, the whole thing, all at once and you can't make a face while doing it. "Second, there is pit bull chained up out back with a sore tooth. You have to remove the tooth with your bare hands. "Third, there's a 90 year old woman upstairs who has never reached orgasm during intercourse. You've got to make things right for her." The man is stunned. "I know I paid my $10, but I'm not an idiot! I won't do it. You have to be nuts to drink a gallon of pepper tequila and then do those other things!" "Your call," says the bartender, "but your money stays where it is." As time goes on the man has a few drinks and then a few more, and he asks, "Where's that tequila?" He grabs the gallon with both hands and downs it with a few big slurps. Tears are streaming down both cheeks, but he doesn't make a face. Next, he staggers out back where the pit bull is chained-up and soon the people inside the bar hear a huge, noisy scuffle going on outside. They hear the pit bull barking, the guy screaming, the pit bull yelping... and then silence. Just when they think the man surely must be dead, he staggers back into the bar with his shirt ripped and large bloody scratches all over his body... "NOW," he says loudly, "Where's the old woman with the sore tooth?"
  10. As a senior golfer with reduced range of motion my concern is with retaining what I have and possibly gaining back some of my flexibility as much or more so than strength. I have given up on achieving greater distance with my shots though good contact usually results in good results, so form over power would be my preference. Does your program use anything like isometrics or stretchy bands for resistance, range of motion exercises and such things? Part of my regime is my warm-up for golf at the course that includes stretches with a long shafted golf club in my hands.
  11. Coyotes appeared this year on my course in the southeast corner of the City of Buffalo next to the suburb of West Seneca. Nearby residents hear them at night and their activity catching deer and dogs have gone missing. At only 3 miles away (and with sightings not far away in the neighborhoods) I keep an eye on my Corgis letting them out especially at night with all the spotlights on, specifically for that reason and I won't let one inside without the other with them, often standing on the deck as over-watch, safety in numbers as a perceived pack and all that.
  12. My Corgis this time of year are susceptible to intestinal problems that began few years back with intestinal hemorrhaging, suspect they found a poisoned animal carcass in the back yard to augment their carefully managed diet, both survived and one was minutes away from expiring according to the veterinary hospital (the cost for treatment would have been a no expense spared Pebble Beach golf weekend). This year they added vegetable to their palet as grass appeared in throw-up so now they wear muzzles going outside and they are limited to licking things. You might want to make sure she doesn't add to her diet when she goes outside in the yard.
  13. Not that we are golfing in the Buffalo area but we have a Lake Effect Winter Storm warning up for this afternoon through Thursday with heavy snow forecast for the downwind areas of Lake Erie south and east of Buffalo metro. Come on summer!
  14. Someone has already been playing this driver! PNC Championship just before the end of 2021.
  15. Okay so we have links to go and review what has been found out about the new tech/products/releases but it is read only, is there going to be a forum discussion element to them? I was going to make a comment on the TaylorMade Stealth driver something snarky about not Stealth enough to get rid of the ball contact sound and that was when I found there was no opportunity to leave my gem of dad humor. UPDATE - I see a forum link now in the initial post of this thread but no linked page. Getting another mug of coffee
  16. I have a Samsung Galaxy A10 and similar experience trying to get a friend to get a free membership in my favorite golf club (World's Greatest Golf Club without the Course aka StickandHack.com) and the phone browser would not run the fields to enter information. Contacted the S&H helpdesk and they said clear the cache, which I found in Settings and each app has it's own clear cache button bottom right of the screen. Well it did not work for my usual Firefox and Firefox Focus browsers so I got my usual PC browsers from the Play Store those being DuckDuckGo and Brave, both of which have ad blocking and tracker defeating software (as in I do not pay for virus protection software on my PC and 3 years running zero viruses etc). First use of both DuckDuckGo and Brave and all the registration fields popped up fully functional and FAST fast fast!!! Both were recommended years ago by my brother who deals with online security and protection. Anyone reading this should try them. Just went on my phone using Brave and mygolfspy.com into forums and (Voila!) no ads. Also gives the stats on what's been blocked and how much time it saved. Forgot to say those blocking stats were from the first use this afternoon and just again to call up MGS, so two uses of the app to look at two sites. Just think what the other browsers are getting bogged down with.
  17. Without enough versions of something to click a seems heartless, is over the top, is just weird, is creepy, and is just wrong. Glad it was an almost and not a past tense happening That's the world for me 4 months of the year.
  18. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! @DaveP043
  19. I can't comment on the phone app as I have only used it infrequently and not since last summer. My PC connection is faster than most of the user media sites I do use frequently (it's FB, YouTube, Google mail, and others that get the spinning wheel of hope doing its thing every time) and MGS for me 10 times faster. Makes me wonder why the difference. Using Brave.com for my browser for its security and tracking block.
  20. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! @ChrisS and @GB13
  21. Favorites from childhood growing up in an English household in the States, I never thought Mincemeat Pie would be something I would prefer over others, but here we are. And Sausage Rolls or "Pigs In A Blanket" have been perennial favorites forever. Wife learned mom's recipes while there was still time and favorite traditions continue! The Brandy and Rum is part of the flavoring that makes this pie like candy and the next best thing to chocolate! Happy New Year!!!
  22. Starting the first day off total control in Army Basic Training (a while ago and 4 months after its release) my lifetime soundtrack has been RUSH, Moving Pictures as it was the only cassette my squadmate bought with a boombox and it played on auto-reverse every off-duty hour until we graduated 10 weeks later. It's also the only album I have bought on 2 cassettes and 2 CDs and been everywhere I have been. https://www.rush.com/albums/moving-pictures/ Deployment in 2004 had a second soundtrack that filled the senses in the Middle East experience of Iraq in harms way. Sarah Brightman, Harem was on the AAFES store speakers at the Kirkuk Airbase FOB Warrior and its sounds were perfect for living 10 months in the Tigris and Euphrates river valleys and preserved my spirit. You can call these two works in their entirety as the soundtrack of my 30 year military career.
  23. A man gets to heaven. He’s a small nerdy account type, and he’s met at the pearly gates by St Peter. “Welcome,” says St Peter, opening a large book. “This book lists all the good things and bad things you did in your life. If you did more good than bad, you get to come in.” “Sounds fair,” says the man. St. Peter reads through the book and when he gets to the end he says, “Well, you’re right on the fence; 50/50. Can you think of any good deed that you did that we might have missed?” “Well,” says the man, “One time I was driving my golf cart and I saw a gang of huge bikers harassing a woman by the side of the road. I could see they were up to no good, so I stopped my cart at the side of the fairway, stormed up to the biggest one, said, ‘Unhand this woman right now!’ and then slapped him across the face.” St. Peter flips back and forth through the book. “I can’t see any record of this. When did it happen?” The man looks at his watch, “Couldn’t have been more than five minutes ago.”
