Reset your Mouse for 2009

You should actually do this every year. Even more often is recommended by Carol Fell (the website computer guru) if you spend a lot of time on the computer.

I was shocked to see how well this works, and how far off mine was!
To re-calibrate your mouse, click and hold on the H below, then drag the H toward the d.
If it doesn't work immediately, you might want to clean your mouse, as the calibration is off.

Have a good New year --- and don't believe every word you read

Thanks for this one from D&A's Jean Campbell with a little modification from Carol

Play Golf in Lapland and Egypt if you have been unable to play at home !!

Here's a blinding little Christmas game that you're gonna love and be infuriated with. Play with Santa in Lapland with nine holes of crazy golf. How low can you score? Go to to play.

Alternatively have a go at LumixWorldGolf and you will really be baffled and fustrated !!

The Ladies Scottish Open will not take place in 2009

Lynn Mitchell who organised caddies for last years Ladies Scottish Open has sent in this message:
I can only apologise for the delay in getting this information out to you but I have only recently received an email from Harry confirming that the Ladies Scottish Open will not be taking place next year 2009.
……“Unfortunately the Ladies Scottish Open will not be taking place next year. The majority of our sponsors were keen to sign up again (Aberdeen and EventScotland were committed) but due to the current economic climate we were not able to make up the shortfall left by one of the partners which is a great shame. We will however see how we can maybe resurrect it for 2010 so I will keep in contact with you should the situation change.”

I would appreciate if you could circulate this information as I do not have an email address for everyone.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and Good New Year and very much hope to be back in contact with you all in the not too distant future.

Many thanks

Kind regards
Lynn Mitchell
