I think I’m going to delete all social media off my phone. Anyone done that?
I have done it for short periods. Definitely less annoying and more productive.

no but I’m pretty close. I can make a case for Instagram staying, but twitter prob is on the way out And I’ve never had a FB account
I have had to block/silence people on social that I never thought I would 2 years ago. People have turned ugly & have put their feelings and thoughts out there and I don’t have time for it.

Vegas is a bit different during Covid, but still fun to be here opening NFL week.

Just finalized a fun foursome for Saturday. I play with each of the 3 regularly, but they have not played together. From age to socio-economics, this will be a diverse group. Should be fun.

I am sitting on the concrete stairs in front of my office (an old stand alone faculty/family housing unit on the edge of the university campus) getting ready for an outdoor lunch meeting. I have worked with distributed teams for many years and with COVID-19 have seamlessly moved to a home office. I stop by this little dilapidated house to water plants and as a base for on campus meetings. That usually feels fine, but every now and then I miss working here and having access to the energy of place. And yet campus is generally quiet and peaceful with a mix of online and in-person classes. Sometimes all of this feels surreal. Like right now.

I have my cleaning next month with a new dentist since we moved to TN. I normally don't mind going, cleanings are quick, but you just don't know what to expect from a new office.
I hit the lotto - 4 fillings in a month!

As bad as my last few rounds have been score wise, I do seem to be able to hit a draw when I want/need to with my new irons. And I've had lots of opportunity from less than ideal positions on the golf course. For years I watched my golf ball curve uncontrollably off of each club, now I can make it curve when I want to

Ever have one of those rounds where you were hitting the ball really well but just can't seem to score? Good times.

My mom was a hygienist. She worked for the same doctor for the last 25 years. She just retired. I’m freaking out a bit about finding a new one.

Just finished a marathon day. Drove to LA for my nieces 1st birthday. Drove back to central coast for a two week trip. Spent 9 hours in a car.

Waking up at 8am just looks like Sanyo is giving my day a preemptive “BOO”

Looks to be a perfect day for golf this afternoon. 80° and wind less than 10mph. Playing a CC on invite that normally we wouldn't get to play.

Round of golf or watching your favorite team on Sunday? Always a tough call.

no skill?
Rainy and cool morning here (about 68*). The sun is due around noon and warming up to 74 so I think my 2 o'clock round should work out nicely!

Going to legal casino in WV to bet some “causal funds” on Open and have so far placed on Morikawa (right after PGA great odds) and Johnson.
Plan to small amounts three to four more and one will be Rory who I think is close to re-emerging at top, another will be Rahm but thinking Berger and Thomas - anyone else to strongly consider? Won 520 on PGA with Collin and Finau (to be top ten not win) and 150 on TC with Johnson betting pretty conservative so far.

I am not going to quit day job but so far winning a little bit in golf by being conservative and reading various sites - Berger considered strong choice as he has shot well on tough courses....

We did some shopping on Chewy tonight to load up on puppy supplies and it's amazing how quickly the money adds up. I forgot how expensive all this stuff is!

Any reason you don't use Chewy? I had never even looked at their site before tonight but we had a couple of coupons so we gave it a whirl. After this I'll probably try buying stuff from a local store. That initial sticker shock was rough but will be worth it.
