Spoke with a LPGA caddy a few weeks ago and he told me that ability and swing are the foundation, but that the work he does is the final touch. Walking the course. Looking for things, mapping, checking and so on. I do not have a caddy, although he offered that I can call him any me next year and he would caddy for me in the area to help me getting started. My plan for next year is not yet developed. Mainly because I am not at the handicap level I need to be to play other tournaments. 2 or lower is the number I need to have and I am not there. I am not far away, but I am not there. It will take some extra effort to get there. The good news is , I know how to do it because I played at the level before.
Once we hit the 2 mark, I will look at more tournaments to play in. I am invited to several tours who would like me to be part of them, but if I do not have a chance to win any $ I am not spending hundreds of dollars to enter. I am not even playing the local tour here for that reason. What sense does it make to spend 200 $ and not having the scoring to make the money back? I played with dozens of pros and tour pros, so there is no benefit or anything special in it for me. I might consider to play with Freddy :) , Steve or Sergio. But for now those guys are out of question LOL.
Look like I made up my mind for new clubs. Going to change my hybrids and will add a 3 W, which I currently do not have in my bag. All other things stay the same. I am very happy with my clubs.

I love wings and I like them hot. Unfortunately most of the so called super hot wings I get like from Hooters, Winghouse or Buffalo Wild Wings (to name a few big ones)are simply not hot . Maybe spicy but not hot. Also the quality of those wings is not as it was before. So about 2.years ago we visited Fort Myers Beach and while looking for a parking spot to actually check out the beach we found a small little place named Wicked Wings.
It was an evening to remember. It was so good that I never stopped thinking about coming back which became reality yesterday. We did not make it in time for happy hour. Happy hour runs until 5 pm.There is some beer and food specials you can get. There were about 6 people on the top level. It was pretty windy and fresh.
I told her it is not a problem and she explained that the cook simply left her alone. So she was serving and in between cooking.
I must say she did a great job. The wings were perfect and the fries right as they should be. Especially the seasoning was great. The sauce was what I ordered but not hot enough. Death might be too much but killer would have been it.
Nevertheless the food was great, the beer was very and cold and the young lady did a great job handling the situation.
The bill was 26$.For the great food and the even better view that was a great deal. I am not sure if this is still the same owner, but I sure liked it again and no doubt I will be back as soon as possible. The location is wonderful and I like the size of the place. Makes it kind of cozy. They have around 25 spots up on the deck and at least 50 down in the sand, which is really nice as well.
Tech Armor Screen Protector for cellphones - how good are they? - customer review on Tech Armor Screen Protector
I had no idea how many brands there actually are. So I started reading reviews on Amazon and all over the Internet. After about an hour of research I found that the Tech Armor screen protector was one of the better ones, if not the best one.
what I was looking for on Amazon and ordered a 3 pack for a very good price.
Got the package in reasonable time. Nicely packed I found the 3 protector foils, cleaning towel and bubble remover as well as easy to understand instructions. All was in excellent condition. It said that I could find a video on their website to learn how to install the protector. It was not only easy to find but showed in a simple way how to do it fast and right.
I followed those instructions and it was a breeze to put it on. There is absolutely no bubble, it looks great, fits perfect and the screen functions without a problem or loss of speed. As a matter of fact, I think it is easier to operate now.
I had many others before but the Tech Armor is by far the best one I used so far. There is all kinds of prices out there for this product so I would suggest to look for sales online. Tech Armor screen protectors are excellent. A great product.
Nice welcome note and the package with 3 protectors
Bubble remover and the micro fiber piece to clean it ( works great)

China Buffet - 4329 Cleveland Aveneu, Suite 501, Fort Myers, FL 33901 - short review November 17th 2013
That is what we did November 17th 2013. After arriving at a closed Greek place we said we will try for Chinese Buffet if we find one. This time we did the GPS get lucky thing and found a few. While driving we saw a Hooters restaurant and right next to it we saw a sign : China Buffet.
Pulled right into the parking lot. When coming to the door we saw it will be open until 9 30 pm and it was 8 50 pm. The hostess who greeted us was friendly and when I asked her if we can still get in to eat, she said yes with a smile. A man sitting at a table next to us was not so excited about us being there.
I looked over to the Buffet and saw that there was still plenty of food in the trays. So I was OK with it. We did not even ask for the price. Our server was friendly and asked us what we want to drink.
Got the cokes pretty fast. Then off to the Buffet.
There was a selection of items, but you could see that they did not put any fresh items out for a while.
Of all items I had the soup was the hottest and pretty much the best. Most of the fried stuff like egg rolls and dumplings were dried out and had no taste to it.
The Sushi was good, but there was only 2 items out and when I came for seconds at 9 05 pm, all of the Sushi was put away. The only reason I got some muscles in the cold bar was that I stopped the guy taking them away while I was getting good.
The salad bar I did not try. Was not much there but that looked fresh. Then I went on to the main dishes. The Peking Duck looked good and the taste was good, but it was absolutely cold. The sauce was very good though. All the chicken dishes were OK and almost hot. But nothing special. The orange chicken and the general Tsao chicken tasted the same. The beef dish was not worth the while. Noodles were OK, fried rice tasted good but also was cold.
I tried pretty much all thing but the fish and the crab. I figured that they must have been out too long and I did not want to take a chance. Christiane tried the pudding and liked that the best.
Our server was great. She came 2 times and asked if things are OK and if we needed more coke. That was very nice. We ordered the check pretty fast. The atmosphere and the way it all looked. it was not a place to sit and chat. Also the people where starting vacuuming, cleaning and the guy who was putting away stuff was jumping up in joy when we ordered the check.
The check. Yeah. The entire experience cost us 28 $. If the food would have been any good or the atmosphere cozy and nice I would understand to pay that price. However, the Buffet was not worth more then 6.95 $ each and until today I do not understand the bill LOL. However, we gave the server a very good tip because she was nice , friendly and had a smile all the way and actually thanked us for being there, which nobody else in this place did.
If you want Chinese Buffet in Fort Myers, The China Buffet on Cleveland Avenue is not the place to go. There is a chance that because they closed within 40 minutes of our arrival some things might have happened. But friendly, if you can not keep up your service and standard all the way to the end of your posted hours, don't open a restaurant.
We are back on the road for now , but will be back next week and see where we are going to eat then. Gladly will we share our experiences so you can save yourself some time and money :). We are Germans and travelled all over the World and have tons of experience in terms of food. So we know what to expect when we go eat somewhere. So I think our point of view is pretty simple and not over picky. Comments and communications are always welcome and I will keep writing as we go , try, test and buy.
Check in was starting T 3 pm, which worked great for us. Found it easily as Cleveland Avenue is a large main road in this town. Christiane checked in and was very happy when she came back to the car.
The young man checking her in was very friendly. We requested a room with very good WiFi.
Slept really well on the mattress. A/C worked good and it was quiet. The breakfast they served the next morning was simple but good.
Bagels, bread, waffles, oranges and bananas, different cereals, hard boiled eggs. Orange and apple juice was there. The coffee was actually not bad at all. Different kinds of jelly, cream cheese and some spread. So it was all good. I liked the milk. 2 % and pretty good. What was different was that the bread was packaged one at a time. Never saw that before. But once in the toaster it does not matter.
Considering that years ago there was no breakfast in most of those places, this was pretty good.
Check out is at noon. That is great because we could go swimming one more time and get things ready without any stress.
Overall this is a nice place for a stop on the way. Remember, that these hotels are very old places which were renovated by this company. Do not expect that the building is brand new. You can see that this place is older. But the way they did it, it is clean and comfortable. That is what counts and for the price of app. 50 $ you can not complaint.
Make sure you bring all your discount options like AAA, ARRP or whatever you got. Also if you have a rewards card make sure you mention it.
I am satisfied with this hotel. Not a place where I would spend a 3 week vacation, but while on the road or for a couple or 3 days, this is totally sufficient and affordable. When we are back working in this area, we for sure will consider the La Quinta Inns & Suites South in Fort Myers. The location is good. A good place to stay when you travel through.

There is really not too much to tell about this charger other than that w
e were satisfied with our first one and bought this one just a few days ago. For that price you can not expect to have it for years. But if you take good care you might get up to 1 year. The one before this one lasted despite a ton of use from 2 people. This one we bought at Marshalls and got a good deal. It was in it's original package, so I was confident it will be in order. Unpacked it and used it right away. Works great. I had less expensive chargers before and had my share of disappointments. But I guess the brand has at least a little impact on quality and performance. So if you are looking for a cellphone car charger, Duracell is reasonable priced and at least in my experience works good.
We went on a short business trip to Ft Myers,FL. Since my work is limited on thisb trip, I thought I will check out some stores and so on. So there was Simon Mall. Never have been there. Right when I entered the mall on the Dillards entrance I found those massage chairs. Similar to the chairs you will found on airports.
Since I just made it through my injury it seemed like a good idea to give it a shot. 1$ for 3 minutes.
They looked clean and comfortable.
Put my first dollar in and leaned back. Great feeling from the beginning. Actually does a great job covering a large area. It was so good that I added another 3.$. For an extra 3 minutes.
It really helped me. My back felt relaxed and my muscles soft. This was a good investment. I would suggest that you try them. Will be nice for a break while shopping and the price is reasonable. You can get more time for 5$ or even 10 $.

Wolfgang and Brigitte Jahn, the owners of this cozy place now started the Oktoberfest. Running through October.
I have tried many of the food items at their restaurant and found some favorites of mine. The menu they put together for this time certainly looks great as well and I will for sure try some of the food items and the beer.
Surely I will write an article about it. But for now I would like to share the menu and encourage you to stop by and give it a shot. Check out my review to find out when they are open and make sure to make reservations. You never know when it is all full.
Oktoberfest Menu for Old Hamburg Schnitzelhaus in Holmes Beach , FL
My favorite beer is the original Oktoberfest beer from Hackerpschorr.
You for sure need to try the Bratwurst delight. One of my favorites and not only does it look good , but the bratwurst is authentic and made just right.
Let me know if you where there and what you thought about the food and the beer. After my next visit I will write again. Check out my first review to learn about the service and how I feel about the place.

There is plenty of sales channels you can put your private stuff on for sale or you can offer your services and products from your business.
4. It is safe
Despite the fact , that was incidents involving people buying and selling on Craigslist, it is pretty much up to you how safe you want it to be.
5. It works
I sold all kinds of things on Craigslist. Offered services and successful found some extra work. Family members found garages for their car and even homes for rent or to buy.
How do you start using Craigslist?
Here is the best way to get started and learn how to work with Craigslist.
1. Read all info about the site and its regulations first. Make sure you understand what they allow, what they do not and what the rules are.
8. If advertising in the personal section , pay special attention. There is a ton of people out there who simply want your money. Read up in one of the forums to learn more about it. You will receive a ton of interesting emails which tell you that you won millions of dollars, that you can make money fast and much more. Often you will receive links to click on which then lead to paysites. Just pay attention and work with common sense.
Craigslist can be a great place to sell and buy and to meet or connect with business people. All you need to do is follow some simple rules, trust your instincts, do nothing you would not do otherwise.
I certainly will continue to sell and buy through this website.

You will find my first review about this Himitsu Teriyaki shop.
Just go through my blog and find the first entry.
In my first entry I explained how we found it, how it looks like and how we were greeted there.
I was so happy with this place, that I decided to bring my parents there to have lunch with us.
That is exactly what we did Thursday August 8th 2013. After a short round of golf we showed up at the Himitsu Sushi & Teriyaki .
Again all look good from the outside. Clean and inviting. We were greeted by the same nice lady and I even introduced my mother to her, which made her even more smile.
We were assigned the same table as we had a few days ago.
This time I wanted to try something else for lunch and decided to go with the chicken and beef combo. So did Christiane.My parents ordered the chicken Teriyaki. We ordered the Egg Rolls as appetizer again.
Also we went with the same drinks.
It only took a few minutes to get the appetizer and the Egg Rolls were as good as the first time. Hot, fresh and tasty.
Shortly after we got the Terriyaki.
It looked great yet again and the taste was as good or better then a few days before this day.
My parents were surprised by the size of the platter and what was on it. We ate for a while and we could finish it, but my parents had to take a box to take some leftover home.
After paying I explained the lady that I am in Florida and hope to see her next time. Thanked her for the great experience and she thanked me for coming in.
Outside we all agreed, that it was a great lunch with great food and that we would come back again if we are here and in the area.
I am excited to report , that I visited this place 2 times and both times the quality and service were excellent. Which confirms what I wrote in my first more comprehensive review.
The Himitsu Sushi & Teriyaki in Bothell, WA is one of the best Teriyaki places I have been to in many years and I hope I can come back when I am in the area again. If you have the chance, stop by and if you try something new or Sushi, please. comment or let us know.
You will find the menu we saw in the review from earlier.
Thank you very much for stopping by.
