Playing #12 at Emirates Golf Club – The Faldo Course

Last night I played The Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club in Dubai under the lights. It was incredible! At the turn, the couple I had been playing with called it a night because the back nine was backed up. I got behind a bunch of groups so had time for more photos and videos.

Hole #12 was playing 142 yards according to the GPS on the cart. I pulled out the W from the set of Pings I had rented, choked up to take something off it, and you can watch the result…

Making Things in 2019

I posted recaps of my making for 2017 and 2018. I thought I might be able to hit 100 making posts in 2019, but I fell well short of that. November and December of 2018 kind of burned me out. I do a bit in 2019 though…

The Problem with Chiropractors

Whenever I tweak my back, people ask if I’m going to see a chiropractor. Nope.

I’ve tried several different ones, but they never fixed anything, so I stopped going a couple years ago. After previous back tweaks, getting “adjusted” in a chiro office for 5-10 minutes did make me feel better. Movement usually helps with that type of injury, so it shouldn’t be a surprise. Thirty minutes after leaving the office it was like I hadn’t even been there; my back would be back to feeling exactly the same. Bouncing around on an exercise ball at home gave me the same relief.

Kind of fitting after tweaking my back last week, this video suggestion came up on YouTube…

I highly recommend you take the time to read the article Yvette (Joe’s guest in the video) wrote, titled Chiropractors are Bullshit.

Science says that if your back is ailing, get a massage and go to a physical therapist.

It’s probably time I go see a PT.
