I like everybody... unless their selfishness becomes intolerable.

I am good at giving a damn.

    What if we allocate golf courses to something else?

    Phil McQuillan17 days ago

    Golf courses are usually located on private land. If the enterprise fails then the owners can be approached about putting the land to some other use..every location has its own pros and cons, weather and soil conditions very and usually a lot of land is quite expensive to purchase and may not be economically feasible to lease either.

    The original premise is good. That idea of re-using land is fine but there are lots of hurdles to overcome. I guess the suggestion would be to work with local authorities to identify ill used and abandoned golf courses and then go through proper contacts.

    Read books instead of e-books

    God bless you all that can turn the pages!

    I totally understand what you mean about an actual book however – don't get me wrong.

    Incidentally, the greatest thing about e-books is how much easier it is for a small time author to get published... 100 times easier is probably not an exaggeration. No publisher would ever have published my 30 page tribute (to my Dad who died at age 98 two years ago), nor anything equivalent.

    My hopeful project is to put together a collection of other biographical tributes from other first time authors. There are loads of people that don't even realize they can do this. Was there someone that you loved, cherished, and think ought to be better remembered? Write 20 – 50 pages about their life and times and try your hand at electronic publishing. I can assure you it will be a very gratifying experience. Don't let your dearly departed suffer that terrible second death – anonymity!

    In case you want to see an example of what I'm talking about, I invite you to take a peek on Amazon. There you can Look Inside the book:
