Ten years ago: Keeping a promise he’d made to anti-abortion Democratic lawmakers to assure passage of his historic health care legislation, President Barack Obama signed an executive order against using federal funds to pay for elective abortions covered by private insurance. Actor Robert Culp died in Los Angeles at age 79. Singer Johnny Maestro died in Florida at age 70.


Five years ago: Germanwings Flight 9525, an Airbus A320, crashed into the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board; investigators said the jetliner was deliberately downed by the 27-year-old co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz. President Barack Obama received Afghan President Ashraf Ghani at the White House, where Obama agreed to slow the U.S military pullout from Afghanistan at the request of its new government but insisted the delay would not jeopardize his commitment to end America’s longest war before leaving office.


One year ago: Attorney General William Barr reported that special counsel Robert Mueller did not find evidence that President Donald Trump’s campaign “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election, but reached no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice; Democrats pointed out that Mueller had found evidence for and against obstruction, and they demanded to see his full report. (The report would be released in April.) New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski announced that he was retiring from the NFL after nine seasons, which had included three Super Bowl victories.

Thought for Today: “Either you think, or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald, American author (1896-1940).

Not surprising.  Things may have settled down by then, but how can athletes be adequately training now?

Morning HotTubDean.  Planning on golfing tomorrow?
no. I have put myself in self-isolation for a few weeks. my golf friends will still be on the links though, without me. with my lack of an immune system I am being cautious.

finally got approval for one of two meds from the insurance company. was on the phone with my doctor's office and insurance company off and on for most of yesterday. I finally asked the doctor to send a list of meds for inflammation and pain to the insurance company that he thought would help me and for them to approve one. Walgreens has waived delivery charge of meds through FedEx. should be here today or tomorrow. alot of nasty side effects with this one though. we shall see.

Probably for the best. The course will still be there in a few weeks or months when this blows over.

Morning, muchachos.  We're finally under Governor Jackass's order to stay home - except for a whole host of exceptions and loopholes.  Stupid.  I was up most of the night working.  Trying to decide whether to drag my ass to bed or just crash on the couch for a few hours.

Finished up my latest rifle.  Been working on this for a year, on and off.  Was supposed to take it to Front Sight second week of April.  But Nevada's shut down.  Sigh.

After I finished this one, I had most of the parts for one more, so now I'm finishing that.

Local course sent an email about opening Thursday. Among the new provisions, no one is allowed into the pro shop, only 1 person at a time in the locker room or bathroom, carts 1 per person, the cup is raised out of the ground 1 inch and anything that hits it is holed, no touching the flagstick, and there's a 3-foot circle around the hole. Anything inside it is a gimme. Bout to be a lot of career rounds out there, I think.
