For some reason, I just haven’t felt like I’ve been connecting or bonding with my kids as of late, so we made an impromptu family engagement at TopGolf. I figured being able to lightly coach them might help things and that they’d enjoy doing something different. This was DaughterGeeding’s first visit and she’s a lefty. The ball may not have gone far, but she was making decent contact and most of them actually went straight.
One shortfall of my Samsung Gear Fit smartwatch is that it doesn’t adequately track my steps when I push my lawnmower, and I’m guessing that’s because both of my hands are on the push bar of the mower.
The local news had a story of an older elementary school girl who begged her father to let her walk to school alone, but unbeknown to her, he trailed her from high above using a live feed from an aerial drone. A lot of people criticized him, but offhand I thought it was a good idea.
The ‘CBS Evening News’ reported that Oklahoma has now overtaken California for the state with the most earthquakes.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus was sentenced yesterday to two years’ probation and a $100,000 fine for giving classified material to his mistress. Yet, people in less prominent or lower rank positions that have carried out similar crimes actually got jail time. Stuff like this ticks me off. The rich and powerful simply get treated differently, more leniently, with white gloves.
I got another one of those emails from AOL asking me to confirm my email as a secondary email address.

From The Houston Chronicle – A Walmart in Midland, Texas will close for six months for renovations, however some skeptics say the closure is linked to a secret military training exercise called “Operation Jade Helm.”
This is going to break a lot of local sports hearts – Ralph Strangis ends 25-year career as voice of Dallas Stars – This part makes it sound like he’s depressed and having a midlife crisis – “My daughter is going to college, I’m single, I don’t have a house … I have a lot of different interests, and this will give me a chance to look at my life and try something different.” When he was married and living in Coppell, WifeGeeding’s fellow kindergarten teacher use to baby and house sit for him all the time, and we were told he’s the nicest guy on Earth.
