I have so much fun playing golf, but my game is not getting any better. The scores suggest it is getting worse but I think it is just as bad as before. The scores in the pictures (my scores are the last on the right on both scorecards), went from 48 to 52 but the second course was longer. So no improvement has been made in spite of watching a tutorial video and actually thinking I am better.
Today I went to the Oak hill golf course, pitch and putt in Barnet with Atul, Monir and Az. I came third overall, Atul was by far the best player as the card suggests. With the great weather and laughter, golf is a really social and fun day out. A rule we have amongst us is the Mulligan, which means that you get one free shot from the tee if the first shot goes wrong. This happened to me on the first hole and it took me seven more shots to finish that hole.
I think I need to watch some more videos and just relax a bit more. I think and pray that with more practice I will get better but it is still loads of fun. Not too much to say, Az improved loads on the last four holes whilst Monir and I have lots of potential.
So it has been a while, but we now have the second challenge in the series.
This came out of nowhere but is a great watch anyway.
The challenge this time is to eat half a Berocca.
Berocca is a energy supplement and especially useful on a hangover, the tablet is supposed to go with water and fizzes up to create an energy drink. Enjoy the video
So this time last week, the world was a different place. I was somewhere nice and hot getting a sun tan, Nigella was having a lovely lunch and no one really cared about the Iranian elections.
Fast forward a week and it is raining in the UK, Nigella didn't enjoy her lunch and Iran is now a happier place. Well, not really and there is a slight exaggeration here but Iran and its global perception has slightly changed; if its to get any better in the long term only those in charge know.
We now have a moderate in charge of the country and moderate is a strange term. On Iranian terms Rouhani is a moderate conservative which means he is the best of a bad bunch. However, when coming in after Ahmenidijad everyone looks good and would be deemed a moderate. What the western world won't realise is that Iran is suffering economically from sanctions and a badly run government. The Ayatollah rules overall and has the final say on international matters but domestically the President has to look after things. The main hope of Iranians is that the sanctions are lifted and that this will help the country and its people. International perceptions can wait for now as the priority is Iran and its people.
To add to the good feeling in Iran, the national football team has now qualified for the football World Cup in 2014. After beating South Korea 1-0 we are now in are first World Cup since 2006. Now the obvious question is: who can get me some tickets please? I would love to go to brazil to watch a game, as would millions of other people, but I deserve it so please help me.
So what will happen this time next week? England to win the ICC Cricket World Cup, something controversial on Big brother or a new recipe by Lord Saatchi?
See you soon: JUMP-OFF
My weekly site visits have dropped to under 100. Is it due to the lack of activity or is this the realisation that this website experiment has run its course?
So a review of the last six months on this site and some of the responses I've had:
- many many spelling mistakes and grammatical errors
- I write how I speak
- the video of my brother doing Insanity is my most popular video with 55 views
- my survey on football was rubbish and I was told my site "is shite lad" from a fellow Liverpool fan.
- I know three people actually read these updates. My brothers and Atul
- I eat lots of burgers
- I've made 88pence from advertising
I shall continue for another six months and see where this journey takes me.
