I love books.  I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hand.  I read in every spare moment and when I don’t have many moments to spare then I read while eating, drying my hair or in bed before falling asleep.  For me, every unopened book provides the possibility of...

In San Francisco, the home of Red Room, they are holding the U.S. Open this week, and the marquee group the first two days, the stars of the stars, includes two lefthanders, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson, and one righty, Tiger Woods. Why, it’s the same thing as if you had a panel of three writers...

Those who know me well know that I am an avid golfer. That does not mean my game is impressive. I’d say it is “average” for someone who took up the game at age 46.  I will get up early and travel distances to play a round. Weather does, however, impact my decision to play. I will not go out in...

Golf is a tricky game.  It takes a long time to learn, for most people, and the many components that have to come together to make a great score can be daunting.  As I set out for eighteen holes yesterday, fervently hoping to improve my score from the previous round, it occurred to me...

Before coming to work in Zimbabwe in November 2009, the only news or information I’d read about the country over the past eight to ten years had been negative.  Hyperinflation that had only that year been brought under control; goods just beginning to flow back into shops; and political violence as...

The year was 1979.  I was retained on a softball team with a bunch of guys who were weary of my complaints about their racist and anti-semitic jokes because I was too valuable to dump.  Their idea of a good time was to regale each other on their extra-marital conquests while wives and kids sat at...

I enjoy watching a wide variety of televised sport. My age has excluded a more active participation, though my wife claims bone idleness is the determining factor. I am currently watching the final day's play of the Ryder Cup and vainly wishing I could harness a small fraction of the suspense for...

Life news: Am gradually getting to feel a bit better, hurrah, though I'm still dosing up on catarrh remedies and blowing my nose for Britain. How delightful. I've taken to carrying wads of tissues and 2 handkerchiefs everywhere with me, just in case. A girl in her prime can enjoy several. Still, I...
