I went for a round of golf at the local course the other day and stumbled across this interesting driving range into the swamp. Please notice the brave man collecting balls in the boat - luckily he's wearing a face mask and a Kevlar vest.

One of the best things about moving to a new country is discovering all the ‘unique’ nuances that seem to be around every corner.

Apparently some folks feel the need to barf up their steak right after they eat it. Maybe to make room for another one? Anyway, Suzie sets everyone straight with this note. As a writer, I suggested she change the ‘from’ to ‘love.’ That’s just me.
This is my new barbershop. I love a good hair cu... What does that door say? Yikes. While it's not as cheap as going to my mom, it's only $3 for a "cut" and head massage.
