Golfing at Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach golf packages are very well known for giving you the best bang for your buck. Not only do you get to enjoy all that Myrtle Beach has to offer, but you get to play on some of the best golf courses on the east coast. As a youngster around the age of 8 I was taught the game of golf by my parents. The whole family spent many a day on golf courses all over the east coast and I always enjoyed the Myrtle Beach golf courses the best.

My parents are looking into taking a long weekend sometime after Labor Day and have invited me along and they have asked me to look into finding a good deal on the Internet as well as asking for my input on where we should go. Of course the first place that came into my mind was Myrtle Beach, so I have been focusing on looking online to see what Myrtle Beach has to offer these days. Since it will be after Labor Day, the crowds will not be so bad and the prices will be a bit easier to swallow.

So far http://www.myrtlebeachgolf.net has gotten my vote for the best site for information that we are looking for, so I have forwarded the link to my folks email for them to check and see if it is of interest to them as well. It has been a long time since we have been to Myrtle Beach, I’m sure things have changed a bit and I hope that they do indeed choose Myrtle Beach and that the weather is decent during the time that we are there. Bad weather can screw up the best laid out plans ya know.

So Many Choices

Amazing how we have such a large variety of vehicles to choose from these days. I can’t imagine going from car dealership to car dealership to find the information needed in order to make the best choice when in the market to purchase a new vehicle. That task could take weeks and possibly months, depending on where you live.

I have been thinking of purchasing a new vehicle in the near future, just haven’t made the final decision yet. I’m grateful for the Internet with sites such as thecarconnection.com that has a great amount of information on a great variety of vehicles that are now available to the public. I’ve heard good things about Hyundai, so I’ve checked out the hyundai veracruz and the hyundai elantra, both good pieces of transportation, but then I saw an article about the chevy equinox and gave that some serious consideration for some time. So many choices it can be mind boggling I’ll tell you that!

My Dad is pushing me towards a volvo s80, volvo has a great reputation and all but I just don’t see me behind the wheel of one at this point. Maybe one day, thanks anyway Dad.

An Interesting Alternative to Traditional Tours.

This is only the month of June and we have all ready experienced one heck of a heat wave. It seems we went straight from a horribly hard winter to an outrageously hot and humid summer. We didn’t even get a taste of and decent Spring weather for heaven’s sake. People are grumpy and looking for relief. Getting to a better climate is on a lot of people’s minds right now. The idea of going abroad, somewhere like London, Ireland or Paris sounds delicious at this point.

I have a co worker that is planning a get-a-way to Europe and has been using the Internet to plan the whole adventure. He is looking into London walking tours, using a website contexttravel.com which caters to people who are intellectually curious and enjoy things like a London private tour or perhaps a nice Paris private tour. These are just a few of over 300 different walks in over 12 cities such as Athens, Boston, Florence, Istanbul, London, Madrid, Naples, New York, Paris, Philadelphia, Rome, Venice. As you can see they are all around this world. It’s an awesome site, one that we all have been looking at over the past several weeks since he discovered it. There is some good stuff going on there folks. A site to check out some time.

The "Check Engine" Light

You gotta love how the Internet can make such takes as finding a decent and reputable auto repair shops. Most folks stay in one place very long these days, you don’t always get a chance to form a long time relationship with many merchants. Word of mouth is still a great form of advertising, the Internet can help if you don’t know anyone.

My youngest sister recently up and moved to Houston, TX and doesn’t know a soul yet. Her Acura Integra is in need of a tune up, the tires rotated and an oil change. She can do some things herself but is limited and she really wants to find a Houston auto repair shop that she can put her faith into and entrust them to make sure her Integra is in the best shape that it can be. Lord knows she is paying a good amount to the bank every month for at least another 3 years.

I sent her a link to repairpal.com, which is an Auto Repair and Maintenance review and rating site that I stumbled on. I keyed in her location and there were several shops that got good reviews. I figured it might be a good starting point for her, it’s user friendly and easy to navigate. She needs to have a place to go to when the “Check Engine” light comes on, it always does at some point.

Moving Issues

It was a long hot week for a good friend of mine. He lost his house due to the economy and had to vacate the property in 30 days. Being a good friend and also owning a pick up truck I spent a few days this past week helping him out. Man did he have a lot of stuff that needed to be packed and moved into storage. But we got the job done and he is moving on. Best of luck to you my friend!
