Yes, there is, and there are HBO topics, and topics about Patrick Reed, and topics about equipment, off-season practice plans, practice at home, speed training, etc.

Then post about baking cookies, cakes and candies.   You can ship them to Michigan.   I wouldn't mind.   

Is there an indoor range or a simulator near you?   Golf shop?   Even if you don't like the golf magazines, they would be beneficial during Covid times.  I'm rereading James Sieckmann's "Your short game solution".   There is always something golf related available.   If not, see the first line in my post!  😅

California recently announced anyone over 65 can get the vaccine now, pending availability. Both my parents (early 70s, but not over 75 yet) have an appointment to get jabbed next Tuesday, which is a big relief for me.

The US Food and Drug Administration will meet this week to consider giving...

Sounds not great, but also:

So… we’ll see.

I do not mean to be disingenuous considering I am getting the vaccine before many others.

Also, I would give my spot if I were certain that it would go to someone who needs it more...there’s a chance it could be wasted. Rumor has it, too much of the first batch was wasted. So it’s my turn, I took it.

That being said, I would rather take the 100% vaccine and just do it right to begin with. I would also rather wait, and take the 100% dose.

Once they get this thing going, they will be pumping it out like hot cakes. For all that Americans are bad at (stopping the spread, cough cough) Mobilizing the vaccine is what we are good at.

Got my initial Moderna installment this afternoon and my wife got her second Pfizer one two weeks ago.  She and her docs felt a little icky the day after the second one, but not terrible.  I’ll let you know how it goes after my second one in 4 weeks.

Nice, good for you!

My wife felt just fine after her 1st shot and pretty bad after her 2nd Pfizer shot. Extreme cold, brain fog, aches.

She has an autoimmune disease, so it may bother her more than others.

One of my docs cancelled his clinic the day after his second Moderna and another his surgeries. I expect I’ll feel less than stellar, but manageable.

That settles it. When my time comes for the vaccine I'm getting two 1st shots. Forget about that second one...

OK.  December 26, 7:00 AM, I was with the mob at WalMart, snarfing up the half-price Christmas Candy.  That's in my job description for the day after Easter and the day after Halloween, too. 

At Easter it's for those Brach's chocolate/marshmallow bunnies where you either bite their ears or legs off first.  Halloween is normally for bags of miniatures or what they call Harvest Corn, the way-too-surgery pieces of candy corn with the chocolate tops, instead of yellow.  As you can probably figure out, I bite the chocolate top off first

The best deal was the big bags of Hershey's miniatures, which include Mr. Goodbar, Krackel, milk chocolate, and dark chocolate.  Neither of us like dark chocolate, so I've sorted them out.  Do you have any recipes we could use them in?

I posted here because I did not find the baking or candy forum, and I wanted you to see it.

When I said there's no golf happening, I forgot that people on the internet don't really know what someone is really saying a lot of the time, and I meant is not happening for me, which to me seems most logical, because it would be most illogical that I would mean that there's no golf happening anywhere in any form.

Of course there is.

Heck Angel Cabrera just got arrested, so, there, there's some golf happening.

& there's golfers golfing in Hawaii, as I did with my BIL way-back-when, at Poipu Bay the month after Payne Stewart would have been in the Grand Slam.  It really moved me when I walked up to the clubhouse and the banner was still up, a they had left Payne's name on it.

I still have my Plus Fours, and tam-o-shanter, and sweater, and two-tone shoes in my locker.

Everyone stay safe, don't let your guard down, and don't expect to get a vaccine any time soon.  I have made a lot of contacts in the regard, but don't feel like I probably better be talking about COVID here.

😷

You're lucky if you actually get it.

Most are just get false information.

Let us know how it goes.  Especially let us know your feelings (physical and mental) after your 2nd shot.

Of my close family, my mother-in-law, brother-in-law, and mom have all gotten the vaccine so far. My MIL and BIL work in health care, and then my mom got the vaccine because she's 70. It's great for my family, even though my father-in-law and father are both higher risk than the other 3 and haven't had the vaccine yet.

It feels like we're making progress and there's some light at the end of the tunnel. Still a long way to go, though.

No false info here, as the 1st wave already got theirs. I am in the 2nd wave of vaccinations in a nationally ranked medical system.

I think the only false information here is that post of yours. 😛

    • Just my opinion, but if you're not going to follow the rules for handicapping, I don't believe you should keep an official handicap.  I'd suggest that you use an unofficial online handicap calculator, and save yourself the few bucks.
    • It's one of those rules that doesn't affect the number of strokes I took, like the signing an incorrect scorecard rule. Keeping a handicap would only be for my information since I don't play in competition.

    • Day 447: Forgot to post yesterday, but did COVID-19 day-3, -4, -5 drills, and superspeed workout. Played 18 today. Short game was really good, with 8 up/downs. Was overdoing palmar flexion early, but settled into a happy middle ground after a few holes. Had a swing thought for backswing, touch lead shoulder to chin, to make myself do a full turn. Best ballstriking round in awhile, and broke 80. Today’s strokes gained vs. tour player:
    • LOL!  You are obviously a funny and classy woman.  I would have preferred that you quoted the entire sentence in your feeble insult, as it referenced my 20+ year career in the US Marine Corps.  FYI, the games we associated with having "Balls" included: pugil sticks, martial arts (MMA, boxing & wrestling), full-contact sports, endurance events, etc.; definitely not recreational games that children play. As a 60+ year old who *LOVES* playing golf with my son regardless of how well either one of us is playing (and could not relate to your earlier Topic regarding soliciting help for your dad), I am starting to gain an appreciation for how a 60+ year old dad who can still play to a 5 handicap would be "grumpy" having to play golf with his child...
