It was good advice in 2008 and still now in 2019. Very few stocks are trading at true value. The market is oversold but don't worry a new crops of buyers comes along all the time.

Straight tee shots are the key. Too bad I never mastered them.

I've got a bit of a ways to go, but I think I can do better.

I remember my uncle, who was very impatient, and watching him play and getting fed up with himself and slow play. He said to no one in particular, "oh well, you gotta keep doing it till you get it right".

I'm still trying.

In the past 20 years I watched a lot of people play the hole behind this house. It appeared to me that mostly older guys who concentrated on their tee shot ending up in the fairway enjoyed the game more than the power hitters who could not control the ball.

I sure as heck enjoyed it more.

I'm an older guy, with some power left, but I'm not trying to zing it out there as far as I can. It's a controlled swing with maybe 75% power - maybe 240-250 yards if the mechanics are there and I'm relaxed.

My older son is probably twice as strong as me - he doesn't have the golf swing "mechanics" just yet. As a result, I out-hit him pretty much every time. I'm planning on giving him a couple of lessons with our club pro, and then he'll eventually embarrass me with his distance.

Should Tiger be worried?

More tariffs. Tariffs go up, sales go down, jobs are lost. More market declines.

I really prefer to sulk in quietly.

Yesterday's losses combined with today's projected declines are not good. Not much I can do about it though. I can't sulk quietly.

Nuff said.

On to more important issues - like the weather.

Also going to install the irrigation moisture sensors today and see how they work out in the coming days. I can't trust my kids to turn the water lines off if I'm not home and it's raining.

For a larger area moisture sensors sound like a good plan though my personal experience says that things in pots never get enough of the rain to not need some additional water.

I'm just using the sensors as a guideline. You are correct in that the pots are always drier than the soil, so the sensors are set up to compensate for that. The sensors are more about not watering plants and beds when it is raining or has rained recently.

That said, I'm still fiddling with the settings. The problem is, I forget when each zone is scheduled to go on, and even if I do know, I forget and remember 20 minutes later - too late.

There is constantly something to learn. None of us will ever know it all.

Had to change the sensor settings this morning as one of the beds was being watered at 8am even though there was rain overnight.

A nice couple of days predicted for us before the monsoons arrive later this week.

At least I got the lawn mowed yesterday and hope to get tomato cages set today.

Monsoons and new tomato plants - is that doable? Wouldn't they have to be protected at least initially?

Changing watering sensor settings worked. Baskets were not watered at 11am, as they were scheduled to be watered.

Now, interesting to see if they get watered at 3pm, which is they next sprinkle they're supposed to get, since they'll be in full sun from 12pm onward.

"Film at 11".

They were planted two weeks ago. If I finish getting the trellises up and tie them off they should be as fine as possible. They gotta leave the nest and fly sometime.

I got all the stakes set before it just plain got hot. In the morning I will do the rest.

The local drama queens are saying up to 4" of rain in 4 days. The weather channel site isn't as dramatic.

Darn planter watering cycle went on at 11pm, even with the moisture sensor on the lowest setting. The sensor was installed in the nearby soil, but I've now installed it in a planter pot.

I've seen my neighbors lawn sprinklers go on in the rain even with a gutter mounted moisture sensor. Stuff happens.

I just think the areas I've installed the sensors (which aren't really expensive per se) aren't reading the soil moisture that well. Or the soil is so compacted, the water runs off, rather than being absorbed by the soil. I think they need to installed in some looser dirt in a pot within the 12 feet allowed by the cable.

I'm going to try this once it warms up a bit. Friggin cool this morning.

Pleasantly cool here. I was a bit chilly doing the tomato trellis / cages. Starting to get warm now.
