Tom and Daisy left me and Jordan alone for a while and she told me about Tom having a mistress. She was surprised that I did not know about Tom and his

“A proper golf equipment fitting plays the key role in optimizing your game with the swing you’ve already got”. (Ed Hebert, Product Testing Manager for Titleist Golf Balls) What many golfers often overlook is that the proper equipment selection, such as choosing the right club or golf ball – can mean the difference between a mediocre and a fantastic play. The selection of the type of golf ball that a golfer chooses, is one that satisfies his specific shot-making features of that ball. Although

The History of Tennis Tennis players are better conditioned and far stronger than they were 20 or 30 years ago. But the athletes have changed far less than the racket technology. Compared to today's composite frames and Kevlar strings, rackets made of wood or the metal T2000 (popularized by Jimmy Connors) look like they should hang in a natural history museum. Modern rackets are significantly bigger and stronger than old models, yet weigh half as much. No wonder a former technical director of th

When we’re dealing with a past that didn’t consist of high-tech stalking toys, and rude gossip hunger, it makes you wonder if there really were any worthy role models to begin with. It all boils down to the concept of human nature; nobody’s perfect. Or perhaps trashing high figures in society is just media ‘fashion’ for 1996. Who knows? in ‘98, star-bashing won’t be cutting-edge style anymore, so reporters, and journalists woul

On every continent, cities and towns are located in specific places all over the continent. Rather than establishing cities in the middle of nowhere because they look good on the map, people build cities in places where they can function with everyday life and help the cities population expand. For these actions to happen as planned, you have to place a city where it will have good agriculture, industry, a fresh water source, transportation, communication, and repository for wastes.

For example, have you ever had a bad dream? Usually, you will wake up and your heart is racing, you are sweating and very agitated, even though all you were doing was sleeping. But, in your mind there was something bad going on and your body was reacting to it. Here’s another example: if you are home alone and you h
