Buckingham Palace announced the engagement of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer (1981)


Apart from Missing the Globe (failing to hit the ball at all) golf's seven sins are said to be:

Topping: striking the top o fthe ball with the bottom of the club.
Duffing: hitting the ground before striking the ball.
Sclaffing: skidding the club over the grass before it hits the ball.
Heeling and Toeing: hitting the ball with either of the edges of a club.
Slicing: hitting the ball in an arc that curves to the right.
Pulling: when the ball is hooked to the left by the club.

The clock, not the steam engine, is the key-machine of the modern industrial age.
Lewis Mumford (1895-1990)

story done!

I was invited to do a Classic BattleTech story by the guy who bought my last CBT story ("Meiyo," which is available on the BattleCorps.com site), and I went and wrote it today. We'll see if he likes it.
