Jim Furyk

(I really thought that Jim Furyk was finally going to get that monkey off his back, at the RBC.  But, I guess it was not to be.  I also did not realize that Tim Clark was only three shots behind coming into the final round.  All I kept hearing was that Furyk was coming in at -15.  You’ve got to hand it to Clark though.  He stayed in the hunt, and then came on strong on the back nine, while Furyk seemed to run out of gas.  I went to school with a kid named Tim Clark.  I guess it’s not that uncommon a name.  Congrats to Clark, and condolences to Furyk.  But, $615,600.00 is one heck of a consolation prize!

There were no new clue words today!  Maybe Hoyt realizes that ralis95 is very busy, with more important pursuits.  Three of the jumbles were new, to me.  Only the one for “crown” was already in my WordPress database.  The answer letter layout was nifty.  Nothing obvious about it, at all.  The cartoon is fantastic.  I love the expression on Fido’s face.   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Today is Lori Loughlin‘s 50th birthday!  I always thought that besides starring on Full House she was also Zoe Morgan, on Person of Interest.  But, that distinction belongs to Ms. Paige Turco.  I think they have a similar look, and they’re less than a year apart in age.  Both fine looking ladies.  Not as fine as Bridget Moynahan though.  She’s the reigning beauty queen of the small screen, for me!  What was Tom Brady thinking by cheating on her?  Putz!   —   YUR

Broken Home 2

When I can no longer bear to think of the victims of broken homes, I begin to think of the victims of intact ones.”   —   Peter de Vries

(Peter was known mainly for his satiric wit, but he could also drop a bomb of reality on you.  Sometimes, the worst thing is continuing to stay in a bad, or abusive, relationship/household.  Usually the victims feel like they don’t have a choice.  Here is one of my favorite de Vries quotes:  “Confession is good for the soul only in the sense that a tweed coat is good for dandruff  –  it is a palliative rather than a remedy.”  This is the same way I feel about political correctness and banning language  –  it does nothing about addressing the underlying causes.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  An apology:  I have no idea what the related articles say, as WordPress has changed – really messed up – the scroll feature on the Add New Post page.  They made one change about a week or so that was bad enough, but today it is even worse.  You can’t preview the articles, or even the pictures, at all.  Until today, you could at least view them if you used the outer scroll bar and positioned the screen just so.  Why they did away with the scroll bar in the text section of the page I just don’t understand.  It must somehow be cheaper for them!  A number of months ago they took away the more advanced color options that I had used to enjoy.  Things must be tough over at WordPress.  If they are a publicly held company, I’d give serious consideration to selling.   —   YUR
