Mom-and-me-2016.png

Having a wonderful time visiting my mom and taking road trips around the Monterey Bay Area. The coast and ocean views are spectacular and it seems only yesterday and not five years ago that I was here last.

Today's word of the day is digression, an act or instance of digressing from a main subject in speech or writing. Pretty appropriate term on my 59th birthday. Indeed in many ways I feel I have reached the age of digression and look forward to the exploring the interesting results of following this path.

Order the book yourself

Have I gone too far and lost totally my wits by purchasing this book? Now I am going to have to read it and sludge through the jungle of mathematical proofs in order to get my money's worth. Who knows if I will ever be able to understand it completely.

As a software developer with many years of experience under my belt, I like to compare myself to a professional craftsman who needs the best tools in order to perfect one's artistic skills and abilities. After five years of very intense usage, my current tool was getting rusty and blunt.

My new tool is a Lenovo Thinkpad T460P.

Since I've decided to pursue my new life as a freelancer, it's important that I am as productive as possible and work efficiently. This new laptop with Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS installed will boost my productivity nicely and keep me going for a while.

Getting the luck of the draw and being able to start with number one out of the fifty contenders, is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Although you have to leave home at the crack of dawn in order to make it in time for the first early morning starting time, being the first off the tee is a symbolic gesture.

I also felt pretty good about may game and thought that who knows maybe I could get a lucky streak and win the tournament. In the past I've entertained similar illusions of fame, only to go into mental meltdown mode and shooting terrible scores. Just to play one shot at a time and enjoy the round as much as possible at this beautiful golf course, "Misschien Wel de Mooiste Golfbaan van Nederland."

The number one sign hangs proudly from my golf bag.

As it turned out, although I made the turn with a so-so 39, the back nine went quite well and I birdied three of the last four holes. Boy was I hitting the ball really great. For awhile there, I was leader in the golf club but after the long wait I came in fourth place which is also nice.
