Work Out Diary

Here's a joke i received in e-mail that pretty much sums up working out:

Dear Diary,
For my birthday this year, my husband purchased a week of
personal training at the local health club. Although
I am still in great shape since being a high school
football cheerleader 43 years ago, I decided it would
be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try.

I called the club and made my reservations with a
personal trainer named Christo, who identified
himself as a 26-year-old aerobics instructor and
model for athletic clothing and swim wear.

Friends seemed pleased with my enthusiasm to get
started! The club encouraged me to keep a diary to
chart my progress.
Started my day at 6:00 am. Tough to get out of bed,
but found it was well worth it when I arrived at the
health club to find Christo waiting for me. He is
something of a Greek god-- with blond hair, dancing
eyes, and a dazzling white smile. Woo Hoo!!

Christo gave me a tour and showed me the machines.. I
enjoyed watching the skillful way in which he
conducted his aerobics class after my workout today.
Very inspiring!

Christo was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although
my gut was already aching from holding it in the
whole time he was around.

This is going to be a FANTASTIC week!!
I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it
out the door. Christo made me lie on my back and push
a heavy iron bar in to the air then he put weights on
it! My legs were a little wobbly on the treadmill,
but I made the full mile. His rewarding smile made
it all worthwhile. I feel GREAT! It's a whole new
life for me.
The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the
toothbrush on the counter and moving my mouth back
and forth over it. I believe I have a hernia in both
pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to
steer or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club
parking lot.
Christo was impatient with me, insisting that my
screams bothered other club members. His voice is a
little too perky for that early in the morning and
when he scolds, he gets this nasally whine that is
VERY annoying.
My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Christo
put m e on the stair monster. Why the hell would
anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity
rendered obsolete by elevators? Christo told me it
would help me get in shape and enjoy life. He said
some other shit too.

Asshole was waiting for me with his vampire-like
teeth exposed as his thin, cruel lips were pulled
back in a full snarl. I couldn't help being a half
an hour late-- it took me that long to tie my shoes.
He took me to work out with dumbbells. When he was
not looking, I ran and hid in the restroom. He sent
some skinny bitch to find me.
Then, as punishment, he put me on the rowing
machine-- which I sank.
I hate that bastard Christo more than any human being
has ever hated any other human being in the history
of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic, anorexic,
little aerobics instructor. If there was a part of
my body I could move without unbearable pain, I would
beat him with it.
Christo wanted me to work on my triceps. I don't
have any triceps! And if you don't want dents in the
floor, don't hand me the damn barbells or anything
that weighs more than a sandwich.
The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health
and nutrition teacher. Why couldn't it have been
someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir
Satan left a message on my answering machine in his
grating, shrilly voice wondering why I did not show
up today. Just hearing his voice made me want to
smash the machine with my planner; however, I lacked
the strength to even use the TV remote and ended up
catching eleven straight hours of the WeatherChannel..
I'm having the Church van pick me up for services
today so I can go and thank GOD that this week is
over. I will also pray that next year my husband
will choose a gift for me that is fun-- like a root
canal or a hysterectomy. I still say if God had
wanted me to bend over, he would have sprinkled the
floor with diamonds!!!

Can 12 be the new 18 in golf?

By Brandon Tucker,
Twelve-hole golf courses are becoming a hot topic, especially after Jack Nicklaus told Golf Digest in 2007: "We should consider the possibility of making 12 holes the standard round. ... Eventually it would be accepted because it makes sense in people's lives."

There are already some fantastic 12-hole golf courses in the world. On Scotland's Isle of Arran, Shiskine Golf and Tennis Club is a 19th century links gem that had 18 holes for a short time until World War II and has kept its current 12-hole route since. Just a few miles north from Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon, the mysterious course Sheep Ranch, designed by Doak, boasts 12 holes that can be played in a variety of different routings.

Shiskine and Sheep Ranch are two of the world's best 12-hole designs, but they're also in the middle of nowhere. The 12-hole concept may work most effectively around larger cities, where land is at a higher premium but golf demand is high, too.

"A nine-hole course works great until you have about 100 golfers per day," noted Doak, who recently redesigned historic nine-hole Aetna Springs Golf Course in Napa Valley, Calif. "In a big city, you can hit that number pretty quickly."

A 12-hole routing offers more flexibility than nine-hole courses and can get more golfers around with the possibility of two or three starting tees, not just one. Get creative with the tee boxes, such as at Sheep Ranch, and you could easily create 18 different holes out of 12 holes worth of acreage and maintenance -- and keep golfers satisfied knowing the shot values will be as good as any 18-hole course.

"We've never assumed that because a course has fewer holes, it's not as good," said Zimmerman. "That doesn't matter in our minds. You could make some extremely good holes and almost dial the design up a bit."

Utah Championships results of Day 1 Qualifying

Greg Walker's recap of the first day qualifier in Saint George Utah: Notice how well my honey did...let's hope it continues through the end of Saturday. :)

Here are the guys that have advanced to the finals Saturday evening

Pat Dempsey 400 yards
Chad Klien 390 yards
Logan Leavitt 377 yards
John Busby 370 yards
Greg Walker 362 yards
? 361 yards

Seniors 45+
Pat Dempsey 387 yards
Greg Walker 377 yards

Super Seniors 50+
Greg Walker 375 yards
Pat Dempsey 367 yards

Masters 55+
Obie Anderson 350 yards
Mark Rodriguez 337 yards
David Gourno 325 yards
? 309 yards

There were supposed to be more people qualify in the seniors and SS, but nobody would enter after Pat and I hit. Tomorrow trying to qualify is Lynn Ray, Jeremy Montgomery, Ben Tuaone, CJ Morely, and many others.

The conditions were gusty winds in your face all day, and supposed to be the same tomorrow. The grid likes a medium height draw off the right side. Pat is in heaven because he can hit that shot all day. Pat might be the only guy to go 400 yards in the event all week unless the wind stops. If Pat wins all three titles, I wouldn't be surprised.

The tee box today was full for 4 solid hours, but only one hitter at a time.

Narcissistic Authentic Self - My Take on Rielle & Johnny

I don't normally comment on interviews I've seen on TV but I watched Oprah today - with John Edward's mistress Rielle Hinter. (The word idiot just popped in my head ...did I just write that?)

What Rielle Hunter calls her truth or authentic self is being confused with her authentic physical wants & authentic selfish needs. Like small children – they want what they want -now, without regard to how it will affect others. But unlike small children (“they don’t know no better” ) one would assume that Rielle would know better.

True spirituality or self-truth does not come from feeding physical needs. Spirituality takes into account how ones actions will affect others…and a spiritual person always takes this fact into account with every interaction they have throughout the day... every day of their life.

This is what Miss Hunter doesn’t seem to get, & I don’t know that she is capable of getting it. She, like John E., is a narcissistic individual…there is no cure or behavior modification for this trait. Narcissists see their daily lies and dishonesty as their truth - their authentic self.

They are incapable of seeing what is really true, spiritual & honest. They act upon what they feel at the moment...the NOW moment. We can talk to them until we’re blue in the face and they still won’t get it. It’s the rest of the world that has the problem, not Rielle or John E. I include "Johnny" because these two are of the same make up & deceitful beliefs.

I feel quite sad for them. For neither she nor John Edwards will ever know “truth”. They are blinded by their self indulgence and a life built on a mountains of lies - Blinded by their narcissistic authentic selves.

I just hope their child will not suffer from this same trait.

Highly recommended by Girlpower Golf & Horsepower Golf, the leaders in custom built golf clubs & club fittings

What's in Your Fridge?

Our new fridge arrived last week. Not too big, not too small...just right for us. I filled it with fresh food, and last night my son came home...saw the fridge for the first time and said "Wow, nice! I like it...but I don't like what's in it!"

So....I will share with you...what is in the refrigerator, shelf by shelf:

1. Gallon low-fat milk, eggs (free range) Horvati cheese & blue cheese
couple of O'Douls and 2 cans of coke
2.broccoli, cauliflower, radishes and....a carton of lard & real butter :)
3.fresh carrots, celery, spinich
4. fresh strawberry, blueberries, apples, lemons,
5. turkey pastrami, beef hot dogs
6. corn, leeks, onions, garlic, bell peppers
misc side shelf's: dried berries, walnuts, pecans, prunes, pickles

And for dinner I made a Hungarian vegetable dish: Green Peas

Tyler opted to make himself some hot dogs instead.

I just hope to keep the fridge somewhat healthy in the future as well.
I have to get in shape for my awesome long drive power golf husband!

So, what's in your fridge?

If mainstream medicine really works, why are Americans so unhealthy?

When it comes to whether mainstream medicine really works, here are ten important "reality check" realizations to keep in mind:

#1) If mainstream medicine really worked, then drug companies wouldn't have to commit scientific fraud to fake their clinical trials, would they?

#2) If mainstream medicine really worked, then doctors, drugs companies and the FDA wouldn't be afraid of competition from nutritional supplements and natural remedies, and they wouldn't keep trying to censor or outlaw those natural remedies.

#3) If mainstream medicine really worked, drug companies would gladly test their drugs side-by-side with nutritional remedies to see what works best. (

#4) If mainstream medicine really worked, health insurance costs would be extremely low. The only reason health insurance costs so much is because mainstream medicine doesn't cure anybody, and patients stay sick, which costs more money to keep treating!
