Gaylord Spings for Great Golf

Being the avid golf fan, the past time has become a weekend ritual for myself and son. Each Saturday we head out to our favorite greens, the Gaylord Opryland Resort Golf Course,Gaylord Springs. It is such a great place to get in a terrific game of golf, and during the last several years of my playing, those sharing their love of golf have became great aquaintances.

My wife does volunteer work each weekend, so she is always hassling me to remember to set the security choice alarm before I walk out the door. Once this is done, I am lost in my world of golf for the remainder of the day. She always love to hear my stories of the great game I played today!

My game gets better with every weekend that I am out there playing. Although most say no, I still think I could be as good as Tiger Woods one day. The golf course at Gaylord Springs is 18 holes, with a clubhouse that wil take your breath away. I think playing there will help me play like him one day.

Big Wheels Keep On Turning

I was hoping that my tax refund check was going to be a bit larger than it ended up being. I did my taxes online this year, but when the actually check was deposited into my account it wasn’t the amount that my computer said it would be. That really sucks.

I was hoping to be able to buy a new car this year. I’ve been spending a good amount of time on the computer looking at a variety of vehicles that have caught my eye. My father would like to see me in a Mercedes Benz CLS, wouldn’t that be something?

My mother would like to see me behind the wheel of her favorite car which happens to be an Aston Martin. Like that would really happen! I really like the looks of the new Infiniti g37 myself. But reality keeps me in check and I do believe that when I’m ready I’ll be looking for a KIA Sorento, it’s a good deal all the way around and suits me just fine.

But for now my Honda Accord will hopefully keep me on the road until I can come up with some money in order to get myself a brand new vehicle.

The Up Dating of Maps

The way that they are constantly changing the names of countries it would be hard to keep up with the job of being a mapmaker these days. But I guess that it would be good job security though. I am pretty familiar with the globe and what is where, and who belongs to who, but sometimes I’m really thrown for a loop about some places.

This time stemming from a conversation at work with a buddy who is planning a unique vacation for his family this summer vacation season. He has had enough of Disney World and the typical family style get-a-ways that they have fallen into the routine of, so he has gone online and has spent a good amount of time researching to come up with The Great British Holiday at Butlins Minehead.

More On Vitamin D

I’ve heard that we all need 5000 IU of Vitamin D but I’ve noticed that it isn’t easy finding this dosage of Vitamin D in the stores (what I’m finding is more like 200 IU and 400 IU)  so I have been doing a bit of looking around online about vitamin D.

I found that Sundown Naturals sells bottles of 2000 IU of their vitamin D so I’ve placed an order via their website and I believe that I will give my sister the bottle and urge her to start taking them twice a day. I’m sure she will be getting the rest of the vitamin in her milk, yogurt, ice cream and other foods that have vitamin D in them. She also takes calcium each day (or so she tells me she does) and that has vitamin D in it as well.

I’m told that if she takes 5000 IU of vitamin D she should be feeling the difference within 30 days. So I’d like to see her taking them right away to see if they can help her feel better in so many ways that enough vitamin D can do for any of us.

Aching Back

For the past couple of months I have woken up with one heck of a back ache. I do believe that it is the mattress that I’m sleeping on. This has got to stop, having a back ache all day really sucks. Looks like I’ve got to look into buying a new mattress. Not something that I’m looking forward to doing, all the time and money that it is going to take to find the perfect one since I’m not planning on buying one online.

Buying a mattress is something that you need to do in person when trying to find one that will be comfortable as well as good for my aching back issues.
