  • Serving some non-traditional dishes on Thanksgiving Day

    Even though I’m not really a turkey lover, I do manage to get my fill of the traditional trimmings, such as mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, stuffing, cranberries, sweet potatoes and more.
    I must admit the taste of deep-fried turkey has caused me to consider eating more than my usual quotient of the bird, rather than mainline the ham, which is usually part of the Thanksgiving spread.

  • Give thanks for our golf course superintendents

    Once in a while, I run into someone who thinks golf course superintendents are grass cutters and nothing more. They think these guys have a cushy job, sitting on a mower all day with none of the stress of corporate America.
    Wrong, wrong, wrong. Golf course superintendents are highly educated specialists who are in charge of multimillion-dollar businesses. It’s almost like owning a farm, except your product is complex, alive and on display year round as golfers play their favorite sport.
