There's a new beast in town!


On a punishing course, with tons of OB danger requiring a need for distance as well as precision, Anthon cruised to victory, looking comfortable the entire way. He bested the number 1 and number 2 players in the world by at least 10 strokes and took home the $6,500.00 purse all by himself. The question is, can he show consistency and repeat this performance in future tournaments?

Lake Julian Disc Golf Course

I spent some time in Asheville, North Carolina and here is the pin on hole 8 at Lake Julian Disc Golf Course. It's a beautiful course, but man does it punish you if you stray off the fairway. Loved the holes with the lake in the background. It was very picturesque.

Top 10 shots from the 2017 European Open



With the most exciting finish yet in this storied tournament, Paul McBeth beat Greg Barsby by one stroke on the last hole to win the tournament. Barsby was attempting to do something no one has done in the history of the tournament and that is win the event wire to wire. It didn't happen though as the Beast did what he does so naturally and came through under pressure to snatch the win from Barsby who was very classy and sportsmanlike in defeat. What a great tournament. Enjoy the top 10 shots as compiled by SpinTV.

David Ian Jackson

Going to see the man, Joe Jackson tonight. I hope he plays a lot of tunes from Beat Crazy and Look Sharp. It's a small venue so it should be great.

Liberando: Reflections of a reluctant warrior




A friend of mine wrote this book and it is available on Amazon.com. The title of this book says it all. This book is about the author's father, who flew 50 bomber missions out of an airbase in Italy against the German war machine. He did it reluctantly but bravely, only wishing to come home in one piece to his family and resume his normal day to day life. The author also has combat air experience, having flown helicopters in the Vietnam conflict so his research, eye for detail, and singular writing style gives you a bird's eye view into one specific facet of the enormous devastating conflict which was the Second World War.

Such a unique account of what these bombing missions entailed should not be missed. It is a thoughtful and even-handed view of the bravery, effort and humanity of the crews involved in the air campaign against the Nazis. After having read this book I understand why these men and women have been referred to as the greatest generation.

Jolene



Watch one of my favorite a capella groups, Pentatonix, collaborate with Dolly Parton to produce a flawless rendition of her hit Jolene. No instruments needed for this gem. It's candy for your ears.
