I have to give my colleague Kiel C. deserved props for shining a light on some desirable holiday gifts this month, and for lighting a fire under my lazy keyboard. Having countered his Sun Mountain blog with my own Sunice submission, I'll now attempt to… more »

My cyber friend Kiel professes his respect and enthusiasm for Sun Mountain outerwear in a recent blog entry. I, too, have much respect for the Idaho company that began the golf outerwear renaissance stateside, but I also look north to America's Hat (or,… more »

In Anchorman, by his own admission, Champ Kind was known for his catch phrase: Whammy! It may not have been the first exclamation to escape my lips when I finished a round with the uPro gps device but, looking back, it now seems to be the most appropri… more »

When they need to be called out, call them out. When Carolyn Bivens raised xenophobia to new stature this year with the English-Only rule, she was dutifully called out by the media, both traditional and cutting-edge. In the past, I had a great time c… more »
