Cubs Win. Golf with the Boys.


Cubs won in a rematch with the Cleveland Indians. It wasn’t even a close game with the Cubs offense in high gear.

Interview with Schwarbs after the game….

Golf with my Tuesday Group

I got in a good round yesterday with buddies Eric and Doug and the addition of Tom Pew. Good guy and a lot of fun. He’ll be a welcomed addition to the Tuesday group. Doug was having one of those rounds where he’d prefer to wake up and realize it was all a bad dream. I’m not sure which was worse – him playing that badly or us watching it. We were all in agreement that we hadn’t seen that bad in a long while. No Bueno Doug! You’ll get back there. One round – toss it out the window.

Eric, however, played quite well and I think we played to about ‘net even’. He’ll claim to take a .1 victory but no sir – that isn’t happening.

Wednesday Morning Golf

This morning I have some golf with my other group. Like clockwork, we get a last minute cancellation. It’s amazing how different my two groups are. Tuesday – all the guys love golf and can’t wait to get out and play. We enjoy the banter. My other older group – it seems sometimes the stars have to align and even then it’s a maybe on if they all show up. It just leaves me puzzled. Yeah, you tell em Ryan Reynolds.


Moving on Ryan…..

I hope everyone has an excellent day. Especially my lovely wife. Ok ok anyone that reads this – you can have an excellent day as well.


Smugmug Buys Flickr

That’s the big news. Flickr has long been squandered by Yahoo and essentially left to die. It used to be the premier photo sharing service in the 90s. Everyone wanted to have a Flickr account and it was a big deal if you paid for the ‘Pro’ features. Yahoo bought them and just cut the rug out from them. They got rid of the owners and then the talent left and start working for competitors┬ábasically creating what Flickr should have been.

Enter Smugmug. Another service that values photographers. Wait and see what exactly will come of this.


Select Partners

Early this morning we have our ‘Select Partners’ tournament. I’m partnering up with my buddy Gary. We’ll see how it goes. It should be a lot of fun as it’s a fairly loose format ‘better ball.’


On a different note…..

It’s a great month for the movies. Infinity Wars and Solo. Both I’m optimistic will be good flicks.

Be well everyone!

I’m Back….Again

I’m back and writing on my blog. I took a little time off while I was fighting this cough that I had. One visit to the Dr and it turns out it was more than a cough. Anyway, I’m finally more like myself. Enough time in bed.

Last evening we visited the Vuong’s and it was definitely a ‘go hard to midnight’ type day. Fortunately for me I had the perfect excuse being that I’m on antibiotics to go a little lighter.

Moving onto the Masters

Tiger Woods survived but still couldn’t post anything in the red. At least, on hole twelve he didn’t hit it in the lake for what would have been a third straight day.

The story definitely has to be Patrick Reed. He’s playing some good golf.

People are saying that this is a Ryder Cup rematch. Wrong! These two are going to be keeping to themselves. Especially Patrick. It’s completely different. Patrick has to play the golf course and not play Rory. So no there won’t be any finger-wagging.

But it’s not all Patrick Reed. Rory has a chance. If he can have another round in the 60’s, he’ll put the pressure on Patrick Reed.

Facebook Still under Fire

I’m sorry Mark. You gave away fifty-million people’s data without their permission and your answer is ,”Sorry!” Why didn’t you have stronger privacy standards in place from day one? I feel users have the right to know when their data is being sold or given and used for purposes that they don’t want it used for. I’d be very careful with Facebook and trusting them.

California. Independents about to overtake Republican Party

We need more people with common sense. More people like myself and like my wife – who in the last election voted for ‘NONE OF THE ABOVE’. Not Hillary. Not Trump. We need better candidates and better choices. Enough of the standard bells and whistles.
