Because you love me
I wrote this guest blog post for BoironUSA.com about my personal health journey, Standing on the Sidelines of My Health
Got my new iPhone 4s today. Siri is the much ballyhooed virtual assistant that responds to voice commands on the 4S. I gave it a try.
KB, “Siri, what are the nearest golf courses?”
Siri, “I have found 9 golf courses that are nearby”
KB, “Who is my wife?”
Siri, “I don’t even know who you are. Go to your Settings to tell me.”
Made me laugh.
I was in San Diego for business and before things got started, I snuck over to play Torrey Pines, South – site of the 2008 U.S. Open Golf Championship, where Tiger won in a playoff against Rocco Mediate.
The place was beautiful, having wonderful practice putting greens and friendly staff. And it is clearly a municipal public golf facility. No pretense or prestige. Welcoming to all.
Loved the course and the views of the pacific. It reminder me a lot of Kingsbarns. Playing from the Whites, measuring 6,628 yards, doesn’t seem all that long, but the prevailing breeze off the ocean can really make for some long tough shots.
The element that struck me as the most challenging, were the numerous and strategically placed bunkers. Off the tee, I was consistently try to avoid one, but had another to consider. The greens are well bunked too. And huge & deep.
Greens were in good shape, and putts broke a lot more than I could ever figure out. My only complaint is that there is very little drinking water on the course. There is only a dinky fountain at the turn, and no where else.
I paid $183 and walked on as a single after only waiting 60-minutes at mid-day on a Thursday. I think I was a little bit lucky. Shot 90 with one birdie, a few pars, and a lot of bogies and doubles.

But I want to be original. Got any ideas for me to consider?
In May, earlier this year, we took a family trip to Disney World / Orlando, FL. It was the first trip that ‘chele and I planned that was 100% for the kids. But somewhat to my surprise, it was a ton of fun for us all.
We didn’t have a budget in mind, all we knew was that we wanted to kids to have the experience while they were at this age, so we tended to pick thing that were at a mid-priced level.
First good decision was pulling the kids out of school for a few days and going on a low traffic week. I shudder to think what those parks and the lines look like on peek weeks.
Coronado Springs Hotel
No regrets from anyone. As much work as I’ve done with Disney over the years, I developed a new respect for what they are able to do with their parks, hotels and people.
Will go back, but not for a few years. So many other places to go.
