OK, I'm rambling. The other gift was a chance to play 9 holes at Sandy Creek tonight. WOW. That was fun! Nobody behind us and only a single man playing a hole ahead..sometimes he got two holes ahead. I had a lot of fun, I was playing pretty well for me. I had some excellent drives, a very sweet 3-wood shot, and a couple of remarkable putts. I had a few decent chip shots too. My chipping has really gone to heck over the years. I really miss playing golf. I'm going to try to get out more, even though I have less time these days :-(Someone kept nagging me to get out and go, and I'm so glad he did. I finally gave in and had a blast. I played from the reds today and we played the front 9 at Sandy Creek. I shot bogie, par, par, bogie, bogie, bogie, par, double bogie, par. The front nine is tighter than the back 9, but the back 9 is longer. I'm not sure which I like best....I can score well on either one. Today, I was OK with my score. It was my first time out in over 8 months. I have been going to the driving range some, but it's not the same.
Also working on my papers this holiday weekend. I wrote about a problem area that I am interested in for my dissertation. I still need to add at least 280 more words to it. It makes me wonder if this is REALLY the topic I can be so interested in. I'm still thinking I'm interested in in the orchard industry in some way. I am writing about..basically, the lack of knowledge sharing in organizations and the loss of business information because it is not valued enough to be captured. If it were captured, it is more likely to be shared and used, right? Is that just my assumption and there is no validity to it? I could design a study "somehow..." to prove it. That would be my area to study. I think I am best suited for a quantitative study. Or perhaps a case study...I am not sure.
Other gifts today???? Many more, but I have written enough for now.
