I don't know who tagged it, but it actually struck me funny. My husband will watch golf on TV with the sound off, which is completely lost on me. I've attempted to play, of course I stink, but I took enough classes to recognize truly gifted golfers display all the perfect forms instructors sought to teach the beginners.
The "bored woman" tag disappeared, but in all honesty, I really should add that to anything I post in the future. It really did make me laugh out, when I saw it I showed it to mr. Glitterbag and we both agreed it was a spot on tag. I'm sorry if anybody caught grief over my "smart ass" remark, please understand it was stated in admiration over the cleverness of a fellow smart ass, not because I was miffed.
I also want to thank farmerman for the information regarding pollution. I live right outside of Annapolis, and our numerous waterways are dangerously close to becoming unusable. When I was a child, my mom would take us to local beaches and we would soak in the water until we were waterlogged. Today, at those same spots, you have signs letting you know if the water is safe enough to enter. The Bay is endangered, crabs oysters and rock fish are perishing in dead zones and it really is due to pollution. In this area, our wetlands and streams, rivers are bearing the brunt of over development of housing and big retailers.
I had never considered the impact of golf courses, probably because it is full of grass rather then another mall or parking lots.
