The sad part about those, "accidents" is that it's mostly all they are, even the Tex mex, Lee Trevino admitted that.<quoted text>Mmmm.<quoted text>Don't be, I was old and ugly enough to know better.<quoted text>The good things in life soon disappear.
Mine had some lime in it, now commonly known as a poof's drink in the UK.
The realization that we were on similar wavelengths soon healed the somatic.

Lee Trevino was said to hold a 1-iron aloft when the lightning horn was sounded some years ago -- when asked why, he said, "Even God can't hit a one-iron..."

Some Yogi's recommend ten or so drops of lime juice in plain water for a mild tonic. Lime in beer is a big deal with Corona, a Mexican beer..."Brandy Alexander," has been traditionally associated with poofs in the US -- best if ordered with a lispy high voice :-)

Heard him say that on UK TV back in the 70s, when he had a weekly golf tutorial programme with Sevy Ballesteros.
Trevino also claims to have won against amateurs by using only a Dr Pepper bottle.

In my early golfing days, he and Sevy were the cat's whiskers.

Thankfully, after 20 years in Spain, I'm out of touch with much of what goes on in UK poofter society.
Corona beer is popular here, but expensive.

Heineken's is more popular in our house.

Small world, we visited that part of southern Spain for golf holidays a few times in the 80s, nearly bought a house in Estepona, just a spit from Marbella.
I played my once only purple even par round on the El Paraiso course, off an 18 handicap.
That was better than a hole in one, which I never managed.
Caught a few eagles over the years, but never an albatross.
We moved to Spain with the intention of keeping in the swing, but somehow I got lucky and managed to shake the monkey off my back after 19 years carrying it around.
We still have our clubs, just in case.

Weather is a golfer's worst enemy, hot, cold, wet or windy.
Playing in icy conditions was fun, we used orange balls.

If you lived in the same approximate location in August 1981, we probably flew over your dwelling on the way back from CA, heading for Fort Lauderdale.
Half way across Lake Okeechobee we encountered a tropical storm, so had to turn back and dump the plane at Okeechobee airfield, from where we finished the journey by car.

That hateful torn tendon experience was at an occasional error called, "work," as I attempted to repair a doorbell. Since the doorbell still doesn't work and my finger still hurts, I guess that were a dual failure.

In 1981 we lived in Los Angeles, far north of LAX...as we reminisce sometimes, in a house worthy of a sitcom or police show -- recall seeing a Roma father putting his small son up onto a neighbor's tiny window ledge -- at the time we didn't realize this was the entry means for burglary -- the child would go to the front door and open it for the adults -- when we saw it we thought, "oh, there's our neighbor, he's misplaced his key."

Here's some more of those "future cars," that the oil companies seem to have squelched for the past hundred years or so:

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php...

Amusing to contemplate the going's on of a hundred years ago:

"[Barney] Oldfield made a fine showing at the opening of the Indianapolis Speedway (August 19-21, 1909), in a Mercedes.[7]

He bought a Benz, and raised his speed in 1910 to 70.159 mph (112.910 km/h) in his "Blitzen Benz". Later that year he drove to 131.25 mph (211.23 km/h). He used the car to break the existing mile, two mile (3 km), and kilometer records at the Daytona Beach Road Course at Ormond, Florida. He was able to charge $4000 for each appearance after that.[2]" [Wiki]

It's too easy to lay the blame at the feet of oil companies, because when the time comes, they'll be the saviours of mankind as long as they haven't already destroyed their customer base.

I'm an old F1 fan from way back in the 50s, when BRM, et al were doing their thing.
What happened car racing wise on the other side of the pond has never really attracted me, it all looks too false, especially the oval tracks.

It was a balky plastic catch that I applied too much force to in trying to release -- it never did release; perhaps someone had epoxied it shut.

It's easy to blame the oil companies when you look on this side of the pond at places like Newark Harbor, Prince William Sound -- or recently, the Gulf of Mexico.

Agreed on oval racing: how about "Figure 8's" -- just kidding -- my wife and I went to a stock car race at an oval and practically choked on the fumes: I guess we're not into that BG sort of breathing

Maybe you simply applied too much force for your finger to take.
I prefer tools for all occasions, like my wise old mum used to say, "Wise men nor fools can work without tools" and she was right.

LOL, I'd never heard of it before, although I must admit to having thought it might be a good idea.
Now I'm not so sure, must be old age catching up.

Don't worry, there's probably a hundred year pause whilst we await the effects/results of mitigation -- plenty of time to chat amiably -- unless the Iranians get the bomb and use it -- now there's another just mitigation need...

America has always worried about who gets 'the bomb' next, but to date, America is still the only country to have ever used 'the bomb' in anger, says an old CND member.
I remember seeing the results on a newsreel in 45, shortly after seeing the liberation of 'the camps' by the allies, both were indelible memories for a 4 year old.
