Hi,

Back and rested after my extended Florida vacation. My wife and I decided to become snow birds. We are purchasing a home in a 55+ community southwest of Orlando at Polo Park East. My wife informed me we were going to leave in December/16 for our next vacation. She did not want another Christmas without the Grandchildren (5 live in Florida now). We looked at the the costs for our several vacations to Florida and decided it was best to purchase a nice home in a 55+ community with...

Hi,

One week until Christmas and we are having a mild late fall. I played Golf the other day since it was 60 with a little breeze. Boy that was great! We do need a hard freeze so as to winter the bugs. Maybe it's about time to work on the snow thrower because time will be short before the storms will be placing a blanket over us again. They are getting a lot in the plains so it won't be long for us to get some snow.

I remember long ago the winters in Northern Illinois....

Hi,

I woke up this mourning to find over 3" snow fall today. Too much too early, just playing a round of golf here last week and it was 60 with slight wind. Now its 30 expecting another 1" or more. Glad I got most of my outside work done earlier this week. Since my move from the farm into town it seems that my to-do list is bigger than anything while on the farm. I had a routine on the farm to get all the chores done so there were not many minor to-do that accumulated....

Hi,

Days before Labor Day holiday and the forecast is for July temps in September. In central Illinois when the temps get near 90 with the humidity above 80% it can be unbearable. Our golf league has moved our start times to 10:00 a.m. That helps a bit and we are not wasting time to get a round in. Today we got nine holes in 1 hr 20 minutes for a five-some. Consolidated the teams to get in before it got to hot.

My putting has gone to the pits lately. Practice, practice...

Too hot to Golf, let alone be outside

Hi,

It's unbearable outside with temps in the 90s' and the humidity being real high, 80% plus. No relief in sight. So my work is being done inside. Nothing new for Illinois in July. Some corn is growing while some fields are rotting from all the rain.

Most of our local recreations are being hit hard. Golf is limited to walkers because of the wet conditions, old men like me who have health issue cannot walk the courses without potential problems. I walked once a few weeks...
