Golf season is January-December down here.

Although you probably ought to switch to Bud Light instead of Bud Heavy in July and August, to make sure you stay hydrated.
Same here. 

Although in my younger, dumber days, I do remember dragging my dad out for some Winter golf in Chicago. The frozen tundra really adds distance off the tee!

I sometimes go to light beer here in July and August after a couple Bud Heavies

It was 89°F with 58% RH and full sun at the pool today.  The pool water felt very nice.  That thermonuclear reactor in the sky can be hot.

Even at a distance.

Think of the energy it produces all going off into space without purpose ...

Dyson Sphere?



My son was talking about this from one of his Zoom meetings for 7th grade science, about the "Type #" civilizations. He didn't remember the name of it. I remembered the name Dyson and that one of the keys was using the entire output of your star. 

I had to tell him, "See! Your dad actually knows stuff too!"

Maybe a year or two ago, there was a scientific paper published about a strange phenomenon astronomers were seeing from a distant star.  They noted that its intensity would decrease and increase on a very regular and predictable basis, but the data weren't consistent with the star itself changing intensity.  Rather, they speculated that something VERY large was obstructing the star every so often.  One theory they proposed was that an alien civilization in that solar system might have built some kind of massive energy harvesting apparatus-- a megastructure.  Not a complete Dyson sphere but still something very large that was orbiting the star and collecting its solar energy.

I'm not saying it's aliens, but...

...IT'S ALIENS!


UPDATE: Oh darnit, just looked up more recent articles from 2018 and apparently, it's just space dust.

new grips, new putters, blades, mallets, center shafted, different faces, milled and inserts,

different techniques,  claw grip, left hand low,  look at the ball, look at the cup, look at your thumb, watch the putter go back, ball in different positions in your stance

different lines, firm and to the center, die it into the cup from the pro side

I've tried everything but long putters and swinging left handed
You're over thinking this just hit the damn ball - stay out of the poison Ivy - get creative with the score card,but you already knew that

Utah has concluded its fourth week of HS FB. It was the first week of regional play, at least around here. Glancing at the scores, all four of the games in this region were absolute blowouts. 

The Pine View Panthers stormed the Desert Hills Thunder 49-20. 
The Snow Canyon Warriors scalped the Pine View Falcons 49-14. 
The Cedar Red Men tamed the Crimson Cliffs Mustangs 37-7.
The Dixie Flyers crop dusted the Hurricane Tigers 35-6. 

So the two closest games each had 29 point differentials.
