Blogging From Florida

I am in Naples with my Dad, brother Craig and Uncle Ross right now.  My Uncle has an amazing condo on the 11th floor on the beach here in Naples, FL.  We played golf yesterday at the Golf Club at Del Webb, which is a brand new course in this incredible Catholic community called Ave Maria.  Here is a pic of the course:

I have not played since November when Peez beat me at Adam's Pointe, but I played fairly well and shot an 86.  Craig and I lost by 1 stroke to Dad and Ross....boo hoo.  Here were the rules:  Craig and I played best ball from the back tees and they played a scramble from the middle tees.  We also gave them 9 strokes and 8 mulligans.

Here is a pic from the condo:

Today we are playing the Mustang Club at the Lely Resort and then we come home tomorrow.  Rock Chalk!

My Fun New Mobile Music Devices

I have been talking about HD radio for a long time, but never pulled the trigger. Tim (who is now engaged! btw) got me this perfect new DUAL HD car radio for Christmas...*probably so I would shut up about it all :)

It is perfect for me because it does everything I want:  supports HD radio, displays song info on HD stations, plays CD-R/RW CD's, plays MP3/WMA CD's, has a front USB connection to play MP3's from a mass storage device and it is Bluetooth capable.  Nice!

I had it installed at Best Buy and bought myself some nice new Alpine speakers too!  Anyway, the ability to plug in a thumb drive and play music is awesome.  However, I wanted an MP3 player that i could plug into my computer in a USB port, then transfer files easily using Windows Media Player, then take it with me when i go 'run', then also plug it into my new car stereo...and so Tim help me find the SanDisk Sansa Express 2GB MP3 Player for just $50 on amazon...

Sansa

All this in time for my long drive to Jonesboro, AR to visit our clients at the East Arkansas Area Agency on Aging!

Everything with this setup is perfect except for the fact that I have to turn my MP3 player on and off again after I use it in my car stereo.  Not that big a deal, but if I figure it out...I just might blog about it!
