Solution For US Credit Cards Not Working In Europe

Credit cardsImage via WikipediaWe recently visited Germany and found it frustrating that many of our US issued credit cards wouldn't work.

What we ran into was the microchip and PIN technology that is standard in credit cards in Europe, but not in our American credit cards.

To the rescue for US travellers, Bound for Europe? New microchip card caters to Americans
"The new Cash Passport card can be bought in either euros or pounds from Travelex retail stores. They will also be sold online next year from the www.US.Travelex.com website, which also lists Travelex retail store locations."

Hope For Wine Allergy Sufferers

This 2009 photograph captured a sneeze in prog...Image via WikipediaThis MSNBC News Article gives wine allergy sufferers some future hope of a cure, Sipping without sneezing? Scientists thwart wine allergies.

In a nutshell, about 8 percent of the world's population can’t sip wine without suffering symptoms of a bad cold. Sulfites cause symptoms in about 1 percent of that group, and a new substance, glycoproteins (sugar-coated proteins), are now being blamed for the other 7 percent.

Mike Lupica To Tiger - ... Sing


Everytime I turn on the TV to see how Tiger is doing in a tournament, if he's not in contention, I'm certainly less interested.

As Mr. Lupica says, "Shut up and sing."

Golf Hawaii - NCL Pride of America

A picture of the cruise ship MS Pride of AmericaImage via Wikipedia
We just got back yesterday from our Hawaii cruise with NCL's Golf Hawaii Program aboard Pride of America.

The cruise ship started/ended in Honolulu Oahu, and visited the islands of Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai. We played on Oahu before joining the cruise, and played 4 times throughout the cruise. This was our first experience with a golf excursion arranged through the cruise ship.

In a nutshell, the golf experience was wonderful and far exceeded our expectations. Here's why:
  1. The onboard PGA golf pro, Cory McKim, was the utmost golf professional.
  2. He joined us on all the golf outings, making sure the transporation, and golf arrangements for each course was smooth sailing.
  3. I've been playing for less than a year and found Cory's teaching style perfect for me, while out on the course, back on the ship's "golfing cage", and during the video analysis of my swing out on the course.

Chez Panisse - The Head Chefs

Chez PanisseImage via WikipediaWhen I hear the restaurant name, Chez Panisse, I usually jump to the name of Alice Waters. But wait, there are some other key players, namely the head chefs, David Tanis and Jean-Pierre Moulle'.

Tanis just published his new book, Heart of the Artichoke and Other Kitchen Journeys, that is a sequel to his A Platter of Figs and Other Recipes. The new book continues and expands on the idea and feeling of intimate French dinners, for small, medium, and large gatherings.

Golf Course Vandalism

Canada Geese and morning fog in Golden Gate ParkImage via WikipediaSheesh, why do folks do things like this, car-driving culprit or culprits responsible for destroying three holes at the Golden Gate Park golf course.

We play at a number of San Francisco municipal golf courses including this one at Golden Gate Park. I started  learning how to play golf at this course about a year ago, so it holds a special place in my heart.

I hope they catch the culprits.
