(Gold)Fish on Fridays

83-year-old Ada Shaw has had her pet goldfish Goldie for 15 years, 50% longer than a goldfish is expected to live even with great care. Goldie is a whopping 15.7 inches long and weighs over two pounds! Shaw, of Folkestone, Kent, cleans his tank once a week and adds a bit of boiling water to keep it warm.

Looks Like A Big Laser

They keep making these big yachts look more and more like Bruce Kirby's humble Laser hull shape:
Wide and flat is fast, apparently.

Photo of the Day: Solomon Sea

I found this on the internet with only the somewhat cryptic caption "Solomon Sea" to indicate where it came from and who these adventurers are.

Iceman 2008 - Crazier than Tillerman?

Some guy from Wisconsin has already rigged up his (unusually rigged) Laser and gone sailing. Why is my boat still sitting under a tarp in my backyard? I'm pretty sure that the lake near my house is completely free from ice, unlike Lake Kegonsa.

Tacticat is now SailX

After much development work from the creators of Tacticat...a new site, called SailX has been launched. If you haven't tried the best online racing simulator, then now's the time to give it a go.

P.S. Obviously all the posts from yesterday were jokes...why would anyone quit sailing to wear silly clothes and walk around hitting a little white ball into a hole in the ground?

What a great idea!!!

Look at this product I found. I need one immediately! I will be the hero of the more bending over to pick up the ball. Think of all the wear and tear I will save on my back! This one even picks up two balls at the same time!!!

Product Review: The LifeStyler

If I got one of these I'd never have to worry about those long walks on par 5 holes again!

Check out those pink socks!!! I just have to get me some!

Quitting Sailing

The time has come. It has become clear to me that sailing just isn't for me. I have become too old and fat for a Laser...and even a Force 5 seems to exciting for me. So, I have decided to take up the ancient sport of golf.

This site will now feature interesting commentary on the how different kinds of grass can affect putting, seasonal allergies, whether walking is too strenuous, the right kind of club covers to buy, the biggest and best umbrellas, how to avoid blisters, etc.

Watch this space...for exciting coverage of GOLF!!!
