Have been meaning to play the Pete Dye courses around Indianapolis. Ft. Harrison is now a state park with an inn and converted former officers' housing, and is the place to stay.

Close to Columbus, Longaberger and Eagle Sticks always had a package with overnight accommodations.

Random Notes: Raining on the east side. Thinking we need a CLE meet up. Heard from JC'sLP? US Open golf. Need to get out and play some golf; weather is finally improving, but I'm busy with a new hobby -- learning guitar at an advanced age is not easy.

How about you?

Buzzardfest: 311 -- No Doubt -- Holy Barbarians

Sorry, missed the date on this thread. Too bad that's an annual event, FP.

Just the one of Les and Mary, Hove. As you know, when you come back to these threads later, the embeds aren't always still viable. I try to check ahead of the date to refresh or replace them. Sometimes I remember the exact pic used originally, but other times -- the ravages of age, you know? Ha!

Apparently, that's true of the 50th anniversary release, Hove. As you probably know, the original album was mixed by the Beatles and George Martin with great care, but in mono. The album was released in a stereo version that was not given the same care or, indeed, any attention by the band itself. Reviews of the new release, available for download, on CD, DVD audio and vinyl, say it's a revealing re-mastering. Haven't heard it myself, yet, but looking forward to it. Cheers!

GB, cool weather varietals, mostly, of the estate bottled wines. Reisling does well, and there are a few nice Chards. Pinot and Cab Franc are probably the best reds. There has been a huge effort to produce more dry wines than has traditionally been the case.

Lonz Winery suffered a catastrophic collapse of its concrete deck over the 4th of July, 2000. 1 killed; 75 injured. It's been closed since then, but is being developed as a state park. Most of the winery has been demolished.

I loved listening to Deford read his weekly essays on NPR's Morning Edition. Will miss his voice.
