TV is not a frontal lobotomy, golf edition

Recently, there's been a lot of "golf" you can watch on tv not Golf Channel, not anything coming from a multinational conglomerate, but by way of individuals and social circles.  There's the 3 things video that @iacas posted here, which was excellent. In addition, the 5SK videos that were included with the subscription was an excellent overview of 5SK, plus there were a couple of videos from Dana Dahlquist and a ton from Chuck Evans.  Here

Bird up close at Bryce Canyon

People don't listen to the signs, feed the birds anyway. No, he still didn't fly away after I stopped recording. I also recited some Edgar Allen Poe at it, don't think it was appreciated.

Montreal bagels

Went to Montreal's two well known bagel shops a couple of times. St Viateur and Fairmount. Although I've had Montreal style bagels at Black Seed Bagels in NY, wanted the real thing. Not religious about which is better, they are different. Montreal bagels are crunchier on the outside, more dense on the inside, a bit smaller, a big plus for me, cheaper, and there are some interesting types - rosemary for one. I'm not sure what seedless was. Nonetheless, I really liked them, but they're different f

An old school no frills "audiophile" and sentimentality

This is my primary stereo receiver: It's nearly 30 years old and still kicking although mine looks a little more worn. It has no remote, no surround sound, no spdif output, no hdmi inputs, no BT, the list goes on. It is the equivalent of an old car with manual steering, manual roll up windows, no antilock brakes but with a finely tuned and maintained engine that never breaks down. Its amplifier parts were taken from another NAD model, the 3020, which was known for its awesome sound an

Observations from Northern Trust Tuesday

Disparaging remarks from some players on Sean Foley Talk about hotels and points and yawn, boring. No charging stations. Momofuku here too, same as US Open (tennis). Generally, students of the game hover around the short game area. One spectator struck up a conversation w/a player about pitching. Haven't been to a tournament in awhile, radar everywhere. You can park behind Starbucks, walk across the coliseum to the buses (10 minutes, just like the US Open - tennis),

    • If I've gotta drop a kid off at the pool...it doesn't really matter which pool it is.
    • Slavoj Zizek: “As soon as you flush the toilet, you’re in the middle of ideology.” If you look at Western history from the Roman Empire to the Middle ages, men and women washed together in State run communal bathhouses.  There were also communal latrines.  The pendulum swung and during the Protestant Reformation, there was a washing moratorium (long story).  By the mid-19th Century, the pendulum swung again and with Victorian era values and advances in medical technology, personal hygiene b
    • They got quota games both Saturday and Sunday starting at 10 am. 
    • I will give that a try. I chalked it off to a rookie mistake. Looks like I can get out tomorrow. As far as the thieves, I have no clue. It didn't even make the news. The 911 operator basically just took our info in case the local PD wanted to speak with us. I thought they would dispatch the county sheriff or state patrol that suspected robbery suspects were heading north on I-75 with a description of the car / suspects. The local PD never called.
    • You don't have to use the GG Live with your phone. I don't. I use the phone to upload after I'm done, but not while actually playing. Did they catch the thieves?
