    I know. I'm also trying really hard to lose twenty pounds. Both of those efforts are doomed to failure.

    Hovered in the 234 to 236 range for years. Began dropping weight about six months ago. Yesterday, was at 212. No idea why. Feel awesome. Hitting the ball farther than before. Can tell I'm getting older, but nothing noticeable with annual blood work, etc. to account for the weight loss. Some may be playing golf 5 to 7 days/week. Eating like a horse. Just finished a bowl of ice cream and a couple Oreos.

    Getting the urge to play again, haven't touched my clubs in probably 4 years, started cleaning them the other day and had my wife wash my Guinness golf towel. Going to see if I even remember how to swing a damn club?

    After hours of YouTubing car detailing hints on my staycation, I took the plunge and bought some detailing products (have not detailed a car in 30 years or so) and set out to work in the driveway and garage. The TW stuff got rave reviews and is relatively easy to apply, and more importantly, I was able to get good results without a lot of skills in this area. Shined up my 2007 Civic Si which has not looked as good since 2007 when we had Shottalk getaway to World Woods. Unfortunately, eracer, wirehair, crossfire, and VTdivot are not frequent visitors to the forum any more, but they got see it when it was new.;)

    Not what I would have pictured you in, but still a nice looking car. Played golf with Eracer near Tampa, his dad's private course. Pics are on here somewhere. I miss those guys.

    It’s more of a toy/weekend car. Primary daily is a Nissan Xterra Pro 4X.

    Eracer and played with a few different folks as they came through Central Florida. Always a fun time, even when Glark snapped eracer’s 4 iron. :D

    I've done a bit of research on these. It's a UK company who sell most of their stuff to Japan and South Korea. Here's the blah blah blah.

    United Golf Clubs were developed by the same company that brought Vega to the UK. Their aim was to create a modern UK golf brand using the best possible materials and manufacturing processes. Forged from a single block of super soft carbon steel the PC-01 gives an incredible feel. The clean looks from address with the thin top line make this a great cavity back iron for the better player. The extra heel and toe weighting also makes them extremely forgiving on off centre hits. The extra weight in the top of the blade, created by the cut through cavity, ensures a strong, powerful flight and enhances feel and performance.

    I'm excited to try the new shafts, getting old means I need more speed, first time trying graphite shafts in irons. These things look shiny too. I get them at the weekend. Review to follow.

    Very nice! And as far as graphite shafts I just put some in my irons this winter and LOVE them.

    Just got this today. A Graphite Design YS SIX nano reloaded shaft. And here is what the postal service did to it. It was NOT accidental. They drove over the "tube" lengthwise. Then bent the tube. The shaft was totally destroyed.

    Nest Thermostat.

    Woke up early yesterday morning to a very cold room. 58 deg F in a Texas summer is downright frigid. It was relatively cold outside (64 deg F) so I chalked it up to that. By afternoon, the main room was running mid to low 60’s (outside temp 93 F) and the thermostat indicating it was off. The compressor running outside told a different story. Sucker would not stay shut off and the waiting cycle was not being enforced after returning power to the unit. Changed thermostats heads with one of our other units and it worked perfectly. As it it was a Lennox thermostat, the only way to procure one locally required me to be a licensed contractor and online stores could not get it here until Monday at the absolute earliest.

    Screw that. Bought a Nest Thermostat at Lowe’s for less than it would cost me to replace and ship the Lennox unit and has it more features including Wi-Fi capability.

    Installation was a piece of cake, took about 15 minutes, and now the house is back to normal. Will be replacing the other two Lennox units with the Nest after a few weeks of seeing how the Nest works out. It took longer to watch YouTube videos on how to replace the thermostat than it did to replace it.
