Callaway Strata Tour Advanced Golf Balls (White)


This golf ball played just fine, my game not so much.  I'm not a good enough golfer to see or recognize the differences that Callaway describes.   I hooked the first one off the tee and into the lake.   The ball does not float and thus was never recovered.  I had some good holes and some bad holes but nothing I could claim either improved or hurt my game due to the ball.  It is a nice enough ball and perhaps a better golfer would notice a difference between it and other balls.

$20 at Amazon. 

From the vendor:
·                        This 3-piece golf ball is designed to provide Tour-level performance while still feeling soft at impact.
·                        Soft Ionomer Cover: This unique blend of ionomers provides excellent control and feel around the green.
·                        DuPont HPF Mantle Layer: The soft, thin mantle layer maximizes ball speed while retaining its soft feel.
·                        Ultra-Resilient Core: This large, resilent core provides high ball speed at soft compression and promotes lower driver spin, resulting in longer distance and straighter shots.

Sterling Silver Moon and Star Asymmetric Dangle Earrings


 These earrings are sized appropriate for a very young child.   They seem well made and the stem part is certainly long enough to hold in a child's ear but the very length of them seems awfully long for a small child.   The price is good at $15.00 on Amazon
and I think the sales photo tries to put the size in perspective but I was still disappointed with how very small they are.

Sterling Silver 9 mm Black Tahitian Cultured Pearl Circle Pendant Necklace, 18"



This is a very pretty piece of jewelry.  The pearl has a mesmerizing glow or depth.  It appears to be well made and drew a pleasant, "that is really nice" from my bride.   At $55 at Amazon it seems quite reasonable for such a good looking necklace.

18k Yellow Gold-Plated Sterling Silver and Green Jade Dangle Earrings




Don't be fooled by the photo, the description is accurate and the color is really green.   The photo on the Amazon page appears to be a very light blue but it is most definitely a very light green.   The earrings are very pretty.  They are not pearl or pear shaped, they are flat not round.  That is not to dissuade you but the photo makes them look more rounded like tear drops.  They are flat tear drops and very pretty and quite reasonable at $43 at Amazon.

Dangle earrings featuring jade teardrops suspended beneath gold-plated fishhooks with bezel-set cubic zirconia rounds
       Jade is commonly treated and impregnated with polymers to enhance its color and improve its stability.

Rhodium Plated Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Bracelet, 7.25"


This is a very pretty bracelet.   Sadly for $40.00 it looks darn near as good  as  one that cost me a lot more a few years back.  This is an attractive piece of jewelry for a very attractive price.

Single White Orchid and Bamboo in Round Cut Glass Vase


Quite frankly I am shocked at the realism in this orchid.   Of course for just over $100.00 it should look  good.   I am betting I could glue it  to the palm  out front and my neighbors would be sure it was real.   It looks identical to the one that was blooming there last month.   This is a compliment to any decor and best of all the black thumb of death that tends my plant will be thwarted.

·                        Made in USA, Ships within 48 hrs

NOMOROBO Rocks!



Recently we were out to dinner with some friends.   One of the friends lavishly praised me for telling her about NOMOROBO.  NOMOROBO is a free service which stops nuisance calls.  You implement their service on their website.. https://www.nomorobo.com/   LINK
NOMOROBO ROCKS!

You then go to your carrier's website and follow NOMOROBO's instructions to set up their software on your phone carriers site.   Once that is accomplished you will get a test call from NOMOROBO and you are done.   It WORKS!

I changed carriers recently due to my inability to reach any human being at Verizon.  They had upped my bill 33%.   Needless to say I was unhappy.   After over two weeks of trying to get the billing issue resolved, I changed to Comcast.   Ironically when I called to disconnect FIOS, the service rep apologized and said, "oh we would never want to lose an account over $50.00."  Too bad I didn't get her when I was trying to resolve my issues.  

However digression aside, due to the switch I had to update my NOMOROBO.   What prompted the update was the number of annoyance calls that proliferated in the short time I had left FIOS.   I was forcefully reminded how much I hate those calls.   So this morning I updated my NOMOROBO and am listening to the silence of no crap calls.  

BTW I did like FIOS but the X1 system from Xfinity and their voice activated remote are truly awesome.
