    I thought Ryder was a company that leases vehicles. You know, they have big yellow cargo trucks.....I thought. Am I missing something? Most of us don't know what that is mate. But whatever, maybe we'll remember where we put it pretty soon.

    "Into golf..."
    Hey, manta, I live on the edge of a golf course. It provides me with endless entertainment.
    I have a good friend who plays the game. He gets in at least one round, each and every day. It's like a Zen thing to him. It has to be, because he's lousy at it.
    Although golf is a game that requires concentration and a great deal of skill, and mandates constant practice, I see little use in it (other than providing me with entertainment, that is). When I see the physical contortions players go through, as they address and hit the ball, and the silly costumes they wear, I am reminded of Wilde's comment on fox hunting (suitably modified): "The unspeakable in pursuit of the [unhittable]."

    ...As long as it isn't punctuation or spelling, that is.


    Hey, manta, do you know why it's called "golf"?
    It's because all of the other four-letter words were already taken.

    You must have seen this, but if you haven't, its worth a look. The best description of the game since Sam Clemens:

    I was just kidding around. Golf is big here in Georgia with the Masters and all. It's just not my bailey wick. Congratuations to our mates across the pond.

    Very good . I see what you did there . Nice to see that you have a sense of humour. How are things in powa? Now look what you've done - you have got me at it too.
