What a wonderful forecast we have for the next few days. They are predicting virtually clear skies and temperatures in the 70′s for today through Sunday. Looks like either this evening or sometime this weekend I will get to officially break in my new golf clubs that have been sitting in the bag for over a month. If you are unable to enjoy some nice weather today you can at least check out these interesting posts from the past week:
