It was not my choice, but I have been sort of out of touch for the past three and a half days. It started out when this truck got snagged on a power line up the hill from where I am living right now. It is not like I understand it, but there was a power surge and that knocked my power off. It took them about five and a half hours to fix it and when the power came back on my computer was fried. I had a friend who does computer repair in Calgary and I showed it to him that night. He said that there was not a lot of point in trying to fix it really.
When we bought this place we kind of thought that it was going to need this done and sure enough we are now looking at a really high repair bill. The house was built in 1971 and the air conditioning unit was put in a couple of years later it would appear. It was not in peak operating condition to start with and I have already gotten a guy who does ac repair in essex county nj to swing past and give us a couple of estimates. I got a price to replace it, even though I knew that I could not afford to do that at the time and a price to have it fixed. Of course it is pretty obvious that this would have been pretty much a band aid solution and not a long term fix. It would have been cheaper in the short term, but pretty much a waste of money when you know that it is probably not going to be a permanent fix.
So you are not really doing right when you fix something which is this old. Usually it will cost a good bit more as the replacement parts are really hard to find. Of course some of the time it is just not a practical idea to totally replace a system. For us we are pretty close to operate at the edge of our abilities to pay our bills now and while we have some money in reserve, it is there for a real emergency. That means something which is really going to be critical. We can probably get through this summer with no air if things are reasonably nice. You just get some really nice fans and you sit in front of them. In this case the house has a full basement and it is cooler down there.
I fell asleep waiting for them to call me to testify. In fact there was no one around when I got woken up by the bailiff. He laughed at me when I asked him where everyone had gone, but I was not laughing. I got dragged up there by one of those personal injury lawyers in toronto. Apparently they were convinced that they could make me say something on the stand that I did not say when they interviewed me before. It is not like I have any great love for any of the people involved however. Jack probably is not hurt at all if you ask me. I personally think that he knew the boss was going to fire his lazy butt and he pulled this crap to try to get something out of it while he could.
When I decided to take on an international client, it was only after I had researched several things. I had never ventured into this area before, so I wanted to make sure I was not taking on more than I could handle. The biggest issue seemed to be the language barrier. I understand Spanish for the most part, but I did not trust myself to ensure all documents were in perfect order. I read an email from an acquaintance that simply stated ‘click here for professional language interpreter services‘. He knew that I had been trying to find an affordable translation service, and the link took me to the one he had used in the past.
I went to their website, and I was impressed with how everything was set up.
Here at my art studio I developed a special blend of ingredients to use in making large paper mache sculptures. I teach a class on how my method works, and students had been asking me to package my blend I use in making the sculptures. I was doing it by hand in quantities the students needed for their own projects. It took a lot of time. I hired an assistant to package the materials for me, but it still took a lot of time. I bought one of the best auger fillers on the market to speed up the process of packaging the dry materials.
The nice thing is that we produce enough now to meet the demands of my students and the public at large. Students tell other people about the product and word gets around.
I know that it could be really hard to try to figure out whether or not you want to go and see a house when you see that it is for sale from the outside. Before the internet people would have to go an open house and look at a house to see if it is what they liked. Today, people can go onto different web sites and see if they like the different things that they see with the houses and condos that the real estate agents are posting. I like to go to www.condogallery.com.sg to see what the different condos look like on the inside.
I’ve always liked the shape of Callaway irons and had great success with a set of X18 Pro Series a couple years ago. I wanted a set of irons that were easy to play but not bad to look at so I picked up a set of X20′s a couple weeks ago. First off, the reports that the X20′s are Callaways version of the X18 Pro Series are not accurate. The X20′s have a much wider sole, more offset and a larger head than the X18 Pro Series had. But, they’re a very nice iron if you’re looking for a game improvement iron that doesn’t look too clunky. I thought the feel was pretty good, sort of muted and soft, not at all harsh. Distance was above average and these irons are very easy to elevate and very, forgiving. There are better options if you want to work the ball but I did find that I could manufacture a draw pretty easily when I wanted. Most of the time I like to hit the ball straight and for that these irons are perfect. I got the stock uniflex shaft and I’m actually pretty impressed with it. Reports are that Callaway is using the “old” Dynamic Gold Lite as their current uniflex shaft. I’ve played everything in the past from S300 Dynamic Golds to 5.5 and 6.0 Rifles and I found the uniflex shaft to hold up just fine for my swing and I didn’t feel like the ball was ballooning at all. Overall I like this iron a lot and I think lot’s of us could do worse than to have a set of these in the bag. As the next few weeks go, I’ll have a chance to get better aquainted with these irons but so far I’m impressed.
First of all these clubs are very forgiving, I played terribly yesterday hitting the ball all over the face and I felt like I was losing minimal distance.
Look – A little bit larger than average size head, and thick-ish topline conform to today’s game improvement standards.
A stylish blue cavity is aesthetically pleasing and adds to the overall value of the club. Look at address ensues confidence.
Feel – As previously noted, a somewhat muted almost forged feel with a flush shot. Off center hits provide the player with almost no vibration, but the player will know he/she has mis-hit it.
Ballflight is pretty good, sends the ball high in the air consistently and I haven’t had a problem with balooning like I did with my driver.
If your looking for a more penetrating, lower ballflight you might want to look at a different set.
Workability is not impossible with this set, but don’t think you will be hitting a 20 yard draw at will with these clubs. I found them good for subtle workability like a 5 yard cut into a
back right pin position or a draw over a greenside bunker.
Distance – Found distance to be pretty good, nothing out of the ordinary. The one thing to note is that off-center hits don’t lose much. Feels like cheating!
I think do an excellent job in what they we’re created for, A forgiving, high ball, game improvement Iron for an average golfer.
