Don't you just love the information super highway - no, not the bridge to nowhere - the Internet.If you gotta have it yesterday, most likely it is there.
I cannot blame my Internet Service Provider, I only blame my slow computer.
I have come to appreciate the cooperation I receive from my local golf courses when they want to get results, news and upcoming events to me. This way, I can send them on to you with great dispatch. That's old school for "like, right away, dude."
