M. Etheridge:"My throat is scratchy"
I do not like the short hair. " Grow it out, Melissa ". You really belt out some stompin` tunes though. I guess that's how you win all of them fancy awards.
I think she should sing a duet with Billy Ray Cyrus, called "Achey Breaky Liberals". Sure fire hit, right?
Speaking of "Award Winners".......WOW! Check this out.
Only here in the great land of opportunity can you be Vice President, and then an Academy Award Winner. I think Bush has a future in country music....Grammy for George? That's the way I see it. Cheny and Clinton are too busy crafting up wild and opulent schemes to get into all that crazy "show biz" malarky, and Jay Leno lets politicians on his show if they ever need a fix of hollywood bliss. Bliss is a strong word, and I don't use it lightly. It also sounds kind of dirty.
So - I know you're all asking, "Hey Speedcat, would you vote for Big Al?" (and yes, he's big) The answer would be no. He scares me to death. Any chubby politicion that wears make-up on award shows gets a check mark in my do-not-like box! >>>>2a
BREAKING NEWS- FOREST WHITAKER WINS OSCAR FOR BEST ACTOR; HELEN MIRREN WINS OSCAR FOR BEST ACTRESS
**A final note:Seinfeld is still funny in a simpleton kind of way.
Final note #2: I think Melissa Etheridge would switch teams to be with Gore. Is Tipper in trouble? Watch for future posts!ESpeedy
I finally made it to the best day of all times. It was a rough week, and I was working long days out in the sleet / snow with a heinously bad cold. My nose has been like a "Moen" Faucet with a leaky washer.
Today I stay warm in my Jammie-Pants and House Coat. Even the Good Lord says to take a day of rest, and that's a great incite, as I'm "out of gas".
Sundays? They are the BEST, and everyone should aggree.
What's your favorite day?

According to the Mighty Rulers @ the 'rati, I am just a wee nugget on a rock of life. If it was not for the Wormburner, Speedcat would = 0. Technorati should change it's name to "Youstinkandhaha". This does not bother me much as I will be buying the company, firing all of their people, and listing only "myself" on Speedcorati.com
Next time you play golf, go over to your buddies cart and pull the top off while he is in the outhouse. Everyone will get a good laugh out of it, and the course manager will give him a verbal thrashing at the end of the round. "I hope he has his credit card!", I say as the group behind us cheers me on.

|How often do you book your tee time on line, Speedy wonders?|
73.3% That's me
Do you ever book online tee times? I never do. The old cell phone is the easiest way for me. Half of the courses I play do not have online tee times available anyway, and credit card internetting is not for me. I'm not sure if "internetting" is a word, but then again, who's checking?? >>Watch out for BIG BROTHER. He is a swash-buckler swank.

Googe, googing, bogger, goolash. I love a fine tasting goolash.
A reprieve for the old cat today, as my job was cancelled at the last minute due to a closing gone wrong. I get paid for 5 hours just to walk in and get some coffee. Being that I'm still technically "on the clock", this is my first El` Bloggo post that I am making a profit while typing. Secretaries have it whipped, don't they.

Did you ever notice that after a great shot, you are balanced in a follow - through position facing the target? When your center of gravity is not "balanced" through impact, it affects the line in which your clubhead enters the bottom of your arc. A toe hit, or shank, is often the result of pulling back, or leaning into a shot. Concentrate on making a full follow through, and hold that position until your ball lands......you can't be off balance if you do that, and you will find yourself hitting solid shots more often!

No tip today, but my rich shipper told me to get rid of a 600.00 leather couch for them... the wealthy are a fickle bunch, aren't they? They did not want her anymore - so the old girl is now living with me until I sell this giant padded cow skin. Just like new mate!
Wanted: Loving owner for Love Couch with no matching Davenport. Needs leather conditioner infrequently, and a TV to watch. TOP GRAIN with natural look and supple feel. You will "melt" into this goldenboy! Ergonomically satisfying jewel-of-a -lounger will pamper you like no other.
All offers and interesting trades considered. This baby is plush and ready for your cheeks, dog!

Each time a cow lets out a burp, more methane gets added to the air. Researchers (me), also say, these belches account for 25% of Hollyville's greenhouse gases, which in turn, adds to global warming. Now, scientists are exploring ways to deal with this latest environmental hazard -- "burping bovines bad beltching bummer".
Each cow emits 500 liters of methane a day; leaving researchers trying to figure out ways to reduce this gas-effect from Hollydale's two hundred cows.
I think their manure smells bad too; MORE METHANE!!! Ohh $#@&%!!
Limber up by stretching with your Driver in your front teeth. This not only creates a symbiosis of metal and muscle, it really scares your opponents. Try this yourself, and you will see what I mean. Sometimes I throw in a few loud comments during this exercise, like "Do you want a piece of me?"
After that grab the three longest irons in your bag. Put them all in your hand together, and make a few swings. Concentrate on a big turn, and try to pull your hands ahead of the irons as they come through the impact zone. You will notice that the added weight of three clubs will not let you do this due to centrifugal force. This is the feeling you get when generating true power in your forward swing. I always see players trying to "push the club" and turn over their wrists on the downward swing.........do the opposite. The start to a powerful downswing is a pull, not a push. Delay the 90 degree angle from shaft to arm as long as possible, and the result is similar to a whip cracking at 150mph. I repeat: centrifugal force and gravity are you biggest allies in hitting the long ball.
When you complete these fundamental warm up routines, the driver alone will feel like a tooth pick. Pull down hard, keep the clubhead behind your hands as long as possible, and you too will crush the ball into powder.
When you get comfortable with 3 clubs, move to a sledge hammer. No, I'm not kidding! A sledge hammer forces you to feel your swing, and the power of the head coming through the impact zone. Anything you can do to move that much weight faster, will double the speed of a now "light" driver. You may want to do this in your garage, if you have one. Unless, of course, you want to really scare your opponent on the first tee.
I have hit some BIG BOMBERS of 340 yards or more at times, so it must work.

Look at the arrow around my waist.
To start your downswing, the first move is a turn of the hips. Coming over the top, or pull-slicing, happens when you start your turn in the arms and shoulders. When you turn your waist toward the target first, don't worry, your shoulders will have to follow. (Unless you are made of neoprene rubber).... That's the key word, follow.
By doing this, not only do you stay on the correct plane into impact, you create torque as your body uncoils. This adds power, and that's what it's all about!
Back on Track for Lefty Louwi
PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Anyone worried that Phil Mickelson was emotionally scarred by that U.S. Open collapse can relax.
Mickelson finally got his season on track Sunday by closing with a 6-under 66 under surprising sunshine to tie the tournament record at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and win by five shots for the 30th victory of his career.
Mickelson overcame a double bogey with a lost ball early in the round with three birdies in a four-hole stretch along the ocean, turning a tight race into another runaway. He matched the largest margin of victory at this tournament, winning by five shots over Kevin Sutherland.
As males, we constantly try and portray a strong, virile image to the rest of the world. Enter an 8 month old baby girl to the mix, and the walls of "macho" crash and burn. Today, I found myself dancing around like a Broadway stage actor, singing my impromptu rendition of "Grampa Paddy (as in cake) is a Block of Stinky Cheese!" Haaa! To this, I was awarded with a big smile from her, and I guess you could say that it was well worth the effort. Speedcat's Woman said, "She thinks your crazy", and that would probably be true. Anyway, I'm glad this is not on video.
This little girl is the cutest baby in Hollyville. My next show starts in 5 minutes......She goes home tonight, and I need to expedite my remaining time with more "baby" entertainment.
Grampa Paddy C.
You know, I always liked the inch better than the centimeter. With that in mind, I am building the Supa-Whammi 460 cubic inch king-sized driver. With it, I will be the envy of the clubhouse. "Mine is the Biggest!", I will say. This frying pan shaped beauty will be a can't miss type of club. Why, even the girlfriend that has never hit a ball will feel at ease with the "PAN". I'm starting the main template cut tomorrow, using aluminum sheets from my old fishing boat. The shaft will be made of Oak......Yeh baby!
If you would like to order one, they are 3000.00 dollars, and you have to pick it up. The factory is in my garage, down the street from Hollydale GC.
The "GolfHighway" link at the bottom of my page has World Wide listings for courses, golf shops, and everything else golf.
They were kind enough to add my home course Hollydale.
Find USA / Minnesota / and presto, there she is.
Thank you GolfHighway! A great site to connect with the world of golf.

You know, people are always writing me and saying, "Hey Speedcat, If you are such a great chef, where are all of the cooking specials on your site? We like all of your golf stuff, but we don't think about course management 24-7 like you. What's up, man?"
Well...... today is your lucky day, so mark this one on your calendar of BIG TIME EVENTS. Here goes, so pay attention - other wise, you will get an F in my cooking class.
Garbage Can Cajun` Style Ham
First, go buy a small metal garbage can. (Rubbermaid melts, and causes Global Warming.) Fill the can half way with a liquid mixture of Tobasco, Boones Farm Raspberry Wine, and Heavy Cream. Let stand for 1 minute.
Next, drill holes in your ham of choice with any electric gun. (I prefer Makita, and like to say it......Mah Keee Tah!!!!!) The holes should be one inch apart.
You can now drop the hog in the bucket; metal, as shown above.
Turn your oven on @ 500 degrees, and remove the rack. The rack is there for stupid people anyway! Set your full pork-can in the center of the oven and close the door. Don't forget this step, or you will be waiting for dinner all day, and that just makes for really angry guests. They are a dangerous entity, as I found out on June 10th.
After cooking for 2 hours, the "liquid mixture" will have boiled off, and become a blackened paste. Yes, this is how cajun` "happens".
Before serving, refill the holes, now black, with crushed red peppers and jolapenos.
There you have it!
If you would like your recipes posted here at Speedcat.com, drop me a line, and I'll get her done.
Enjoy your meal, and don't forget to turn off the oven.

Great dinner out and about town tonight with Pappa Ross and his Woman, she really is the prettiest girl from B.C.H.S.
For once, I didn't get chicken, but Speedcat's Woman did, so I stole a chunk from her plate while she wasn't lookin'. Hey, why not.
After the food fest, me and P. Ross stopped into the golf store and hit some balls. I hit the Taylor Made R7460, King Cobra X-Speed, Ping G5, and all of the Nike Drivers. The new square Sumo sounded like a large, empty LP tank being hit with soft lead pellets from an air gun.......STRANGE AND LOUD. >>>Did I like it you say? Yes, but I got the shakes from the sticker price.
A yardage book for Hollydale Golf Course, my home. It's not the longest track on the map, but it's a great place to sneak out after work for a practice round. Great fun for a wild bomber like me.
During the long Hollydale winters, I use music as an artistic outlet. I have many fans (about 3) that I perform live acoustic concerts for.
Here I am putting on a show in Ramsey. After my set of classics, including "Here I go again", by Whitesnake, I was hailed back by the audience for an encore song, "I love Texas".
My tip jar was chalk full of quarters!

Golfers are familiar with Arnie's Army, a group of fanatical fans of golfing great Arnold Palmer. Curtis Miller is a soldier in Our Knees Army. Miller, 72, of Mount Morris, has given not only his heart and soul to the game of golf, but also his knee cap. He has a putter made from his artificial knee, which was taken out about five weeks ago. "It's my $45,000 putter," Miller said, adding that that was the price of his knee operation. Miller has had five previous knee operations, four in the right knee and one in the left, and he said he had thought about using his knee to make a putter. The material in question is the bottom half of his right knee. Miller had Jeff Adams, a local sculptor and owner of inBronze Foundry in Mount Morris, fashion a bronze face for the putter. Miller then smoothed the knee and attached it to the face, then attached both to steel brace. The Golf Shack in Rockford put on the shaft and grip. "What is this thing?" Miller said was the reaction by Golf Shack employees. Miller lives next to Sunset Golf Course in Mount Morris and he has been a member for more than 30 years. Describing himself as an "in between" golfer who shoots in the 42-43 range, Miller tries to get in three to four games a week. "It's pretty true," Miller said of his patella putter, "although it's a little heavy because of the bronze. "Miller will be putting his putter to good use in the next couple of months. He left last month for Brownsville, Texas, where he plans to get in plenty of golf. "They'll give me strokes," Miller said of his golfing buddies in Texas. With his new putter in tow, he probably won't need them.
Speedcat Hollydale wrote: "Curtis Miller is one of those guys that embodies the public golfers of America. To many of us, golf is much more than just a game. It has a strong importance in our lives. The memories and camaraderie involved give us a common link. I think this story is fantastic! Mr. Miller, I would invite you into my foursome any time. Hope your old knee brings you many birdies in the future.
Speedcat Hollydale, from MN"
A final thought ......
I am going to make a putter out of my old appendix......it will have a soft feel, for touch putts. That, or it will just collect a bunch of old popcorn nuggets.
Adios El Cabelioro Miller

Tomorrow I head out to deliver a shipment in Saint Cloud MN. I love it there, and I'm going to make a lunch stop at the "Chicken Hut" for some of my flavor-ite BBQ. I can't wait. I hope I can sleep tonight.
As I was promised a nice tip, I will be on my best behavior, whatever that means. I'm hoping for a C-Note
Today, Tuesday 6th, was one of the absolute worst days of traffic in Hollyville to be witnessed by all of mankind - including the Neanderthals. I do believe that I spent 6 hours on the road, and logged in about 75 miles. Hundreds of crashes littered the city. Being a Speedcat, I like litter, but not this brand.
The girls are here tonight, hemmin' and hahhin' about old pictures and memorabilia. They really get along well.
A big hello to Stretch Armstrong. He is a Neanderthal!

First off........what the heck was that cloth wrap on his head? This type of head gear my look nice on an elderly woman, but definitely not an a man - well, I think he is male. Of course, when he took it off, the reason was apparent. Heavy use of hair spray does not wear well in the rain........purple rain, no less. :-)
Not much new music. Why? Because the new stuff stinks. Old worn out 80's songs, and Jimmy Hendrix riffs I heard to way too many times already just hurt my "anvil and stirrup assembly". (ear, to the layperson)
*A final note: My Father does the best rendition of Purple Rain that you ever heard. If you have been one of the lucky ones to witness this, you know exactly what I mean. He loved the Half Time Show! So, there are two unique critiques for the purpleformance..
