    It's only my Wednesday. But the next two days of work should be easier at least.

    That's good. I forget that not everyone has saturdays and sundays off.

    Sometimes I wish I worked a Monday-Friday schedule but I do like having at least one week day off because it makes doctors appointments and doing errands easier. My normal schedule is Tuesday-Saturday.

    Yea, it's good to have a weekday off. Whenever I take a long three day weekend, and have a Monday off it's nice because things are open that aren't open on the weekends, and less crowds if I'm going to a restaurant or shopping.

    I'm glad that you're trying to find the humor babe.


    And wegs, I totally would rather go to a restaurant on a Monday when it's slow than a Saturday when it's packed lol.

    The electricity is out in my house, there's a storm blowing through. A few thunderclaps, but not much in the way of rain. I wonder if the lightning hit a power grid or something. Idk, but using my hotspot from my iphone for the internet.

    Ask the doc to make you a cyborg. That'd be so cool.

    Game of Thrones is good, but you can tell that it's more HBO-ish this season that George RR Martin. Just feels too rehearsed and not as raw as the previous seasons. No spoilers, for those who aren't yet caught up.

    No, it's a fantasy series that somewhat touches some of the same points as LotR...violence, ''good vs evil,'' wars, strange creatures, etc. I'm caught up now for season 8 and it's been riveting. Never know where the show will go, the finale of the entire series, is this coming weekend. But, maybe it's time to end it.

    haha It's not looking that way, but then it would be Game of Thrones, if everyone lived happily ever after.

    Yesterday was my first day of +90F heat this year and I'm already wishing for cooler temperatures. 60-75f is the perfect temperature range in my opinion.

    Here in Worcester the River Severn has flooded the racecourse right up to the top of the rails. Crazy for mid summer. This is after a week of relentless rain and showers.
    Actually it's not totally unprecedented. It's the cricket season, and this is what to expect.

    Is it normally rainy and chilly all season in England? Do you often get very dry or very hot weeks, days, or periods?

    I like cold and rainy, or cold and snowy more than hot and humid or hot and dry.

    Are you following the Women's Soccer World Cup in France?

    I like it in small doses, but it's still in the group stages. It will get better.

    One thing about VAR, it shows how bad the refereeing is. A lot of penalties, some legitimate but others not and in the final analysis...poor officiating.

    I coached plenty of women’s soccer when it was in its infancy and I’ll tell you this, your best player has to be the keeper. Someone preferably tall, athletic, fearless and can kick the ball a mile.
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    Exactly! I'm more suited for cold weather than hot weather but not everyone is that way. I turn into a puddle in the conditions you thrive in lol.

    Scotland v Argentina last night. Scotland needed to win to avoid going home. With 15 minutes to play they were 3-0 up, then conceded a goal. Then their short goalkeeper spooned one into the net and in the last seconds Argentina levelled with a retaken penalty.
    So I think you're right.
    England meanwhile won 2-0 but were largely outplayed by a small Japan team.
    I guess you are rooting for Canada.

    So I think you're right.
    England meanwhile won 2-0 but were largely outplayed by a small Japan team.
    I guess you are rooting for Canada.
    It used to be the worst kid got to play keeper. Had a team of 10 year olds at.one time and we were terrible. Getting beat 6-0 or worse on some nights. My daughter was the best player so i put her in goal. Next thing you know we're in every game and even started winning. My kid continued as a keeper for the rest of her playing career andwas even offered scholarships at USA colleges when she got older. She opted to stay in Canada, has a degree, a successful.career and soccer is just a memory for.her now.

    As for VAR, I thought it was brought in specifically to tell.whether a ball.had crossed the line. But football is corrupt and it starts from the governing body, filters its way down to the playing field (players faking fouls, refs bribed) and now into the replay booth. I prefer amateur games over professional anytime.

    Say it ain't so. Not Highgate too? For a minute I thought Highgate was the mind state of the paying customers.

    Switch to golf. Got out for only 3rd time this year (no practice) a couple days ago, been so wet.. Played out of my mind. Ended up +4 for the day and for me that's pretty good. Credit having to change my grip because of recent surgery on right hand. For some inexplicable reason I can't help but hit it straight these days. Hope.that continues.

    Normal gate receipts from average attendance of less than 100 just about pays for the referee and linesmen. This is not unusual in non league football. So where do they get the money to pay the players and all the rest?

    But remember the old saying:
    Golf is 90% mental and 10% mental. What worked yesterday, won't work today and won't work tomorrow, either.

    ox... I know. Almost afraid to go out there again. Didn't want to stop last round. Things will inevitably go wrong, I'll try to fix, make things worse than ever but somehow along the way I'll hit a great shot and I'll keep going back.

    Golfing Gods got even with me today. Followed up last week’s sizzling round with a disaster today. If there was water, I’d splash it. If there was sand I beached it, fairway divots I found them. Not too bad first 8 holes but then the gods visited, what a shitshow from there. If you find it, I lost my swing at ninth hole, please return. Also, someone shrunk the cup, it looked like a shot glass. Went to 19th hole and waiter spilled beer all over me, glad to go home.

    Whenever you play any type of sport some days you do well and other days you do not do as well. At least the first eight holes did not go so bad. Good luck next time.

    LOL. The shot glass reference had already floored me, and then came the 19th hole incident. After many years trying my hand at this particular sport, all I can say is: I know what you is talking about.

    i couldn’t even get mad. Not the first time I’ve had something spilled on me but timing was perfect. We all laughed because we knew the frustration I was feeling.

    Those guys controlling the universe’s computer simulation flicked a switch and the good golf times were over. Why they give a shit is beyond me, perhaps they have a sense of humour and have played the game themselves.

    You need to say a prayer to the gods before the round.
    Here, this might help.

    If I ever play in Egypt I’ll bring these with me.

    i think I know what happened. Just my buddy and me playing, like last week but we catch up to another pair on the ninth this time. I’d just finished rolling in a 21 footer for birdie on 8. Turns out I knew one of the two guys we caught up to. It’s like I suddenly got out of rhythm and started thinking too much. I knew my swing had changed but I couldn’t do anything about it. Although I tried to regain the stroke, it simply would not come back. This is not the first time I’ve experienced this and probably not the last. Now most golfers know that at some point it will return but in the meantime, one suffers.

    Happens when I don't focus and then start thinking too much. Paralysis by analysis.

    Spent a hectic day in London yesterday. As a fan of train stations I arrived at Euston, but had to look in at St Pancras and King's Cross. Then walked through Hyde Park to the Albert Memorial and Albert Hall, spent an hour in the Science Museum, Buckingham Palace, Green Park, Horse Guards Parade, Whitehall, Houses of Parliament, River Thames. Then I've seen only about a 1/0000 of what there is to see and do in London.

    Maybe I’ve found a new hobby. My wife dragged me off to a nearby antique/collectibles store yesterday. Actually the first store of its kind that I’ve ever been in. Fortunately we went with a couple of friends who were visiting us and one of them was quite knowledgeable. So I poked around, saw some things I remembered from my past plus other interesting junk.

    So I find this drinking glass in real good shape. It was a promotional glass put out by Wilson, the large sporting goods manufacturer. It depicted a pro golfer named Julius Boris accompanied with golfing tips. I bought it for $2 Cdn. Naturally checked it out on internet when I got back home. Turns out the glass is one of a set of four from late 60’s early 70’s to the best of my searching. Found couple of same glass for sale on EBay from $20 to $30 US. Now I don’t know whether to sell it or find the other three to complete the set. Enjoyed the experience and might go back after checking out on internet some of the items I photographed while in store.

    Those shops are fun, cool that you have a newfound interest! I think I'd look for the other three to complete the set. But, there are people who make hobbies out of finding unique pieces and selling them.

    That would be an addictive hobby for me, and I'd want to keep everything.

    She is touring around Scotland and Ireland at the moment, somewhere above or in another thread she stated that she would be there right now. I hope she's having fun on her trip.

    I would want to sell everything if I found a way to make it profitable. You have to take into account the Ebay fee, the PayPal fee and the shipping fee including boxes and packaging. Shipping glass is not without risks as well.

    Same.

    Etsy is a great online site that offers everything from jewelry to furniture, but it's not like Amazon. I love it. Might be worth looking into and comparing to E-bay. Only downfall, their only shipping option is the USPS.

    The only thing I really sell from time to time are guitars. Ebay seems to be the best for that.

    Any Scots here? There was a boat docked next to mine the other day. Beautiful cabin cruiser with its name stencilled across the stern, obviously some sort of Scottish phrase. We wondered exactly the meaning of it....SCOTS WHA HAE. Google has a few meanings with one that says it’s the same as saying Scots that have. Sounds logical but I wonder if that is correct or whether it signifies some deeper meaning?

    So “Scots wha hae” has nothing to do with accumulated wealth?

    My caddie at Carnoustie sent me an email...nice young man....that he utterly enjoyed talking with me and sharing golf with me and to please look him up if I came to play golf again there.

    He was a delightful young man. I asked many questions on his field he was going into.....the next caddy was a grumpy Scot...the third was a darling young man heading for Marine Biology and I gave him information about some of the oceanoloy places he could explore..

    Tomorrow at the tip of Scotland and we shall go on a tour and then explore.

    Last night I was asked to perform....so I agreed as it was a sing along and I had performed a few nights earlier when asked for two songs...this way eveyone had fun. Asked again tonight but begged off.......

    You played Carnoustie!

    Was that the main championship course (aka Carnasty), the Burnside links or the Buddon links. Maybe all 3.
    I played Carnasty once and every hole was "Find me oot".

    Well I survived the concert. I probably lost some more hearing from it, but it was totally worth it! Then I drove back home and closed on buying my house yesterday, so I am now a homeowner!

    Thanks! I totally did lol. Also screamed out the lyrics to unsainted, people=shit, heretic anthem, before I forget and others. They played 17 songs from over their 20 year history. Volbeat, Gojira, Behemoth, and Witch Ripper also played. They all kicked ass.

    I wanna say that the lead singer branched out and started his own band...is he still doing that? I've lost touch with SK. Are they still wearing masks?

    The lead singer's wedding pics were epic...he got married like ten years ago.

    The other band that he is in is Stone Sour. Which I guess he was in before Slipknot but it ended for awhile until after he had been with Slipknot a few years when he started it back up. Stone Sour has a way different sound, a lot softer and more melodic. Yeah they're still wearing masks, they actually just got new masks right before this tour.

    I hear Trump wants to go green and buy Greenland.
    What possible explanation for this other than the world's biggest island is rich in minerals, fish, pure water, adventure tourism?

    I'll raise you "Prikkktotalus"

    Maybe Greenland will be the new Falklands.though and will be open to all sorts of bribery and inducements in the years to come. Best buying shares now and invest in the coming climate disaster.

    The big baby he is, Trump has turned down a state visit to Denmark because they refuse to sell Greenland.

    Just heard some breaking news.
    Trump has had an arsehole transplant, and the arsehole has rejected him.

    One week and counting until my visit with Falconer360 for a week. So much to do before the trip and so many things we want to get done during the trip

    If I had to choose a burial spot, what area of Earth offers the best chance for my bones to become fossilized?

    No! I need new museum displays eventually.

    And Zin - I'm not sure offhand, Paleo might be better able to answer that. A desert would be the first place that comes to mind though.

    Is fossilization a quick process or does it occur over many years?

    It occurs over many years. Generally thousands to millions of years. But the initial preservation has to be fairly rapid to prevent decay.
