How To Pick The Best Golf Clubs For A Beginner?

Best golf clubs for a Beginner


When you are first starting out with golf, you will want to have equipment that is geared more towards your skill level than anything else. If you decide that you are crazy about golfing and you want to spend thousands of dollars on the most deluxe clubs available, you are likely to encounter nothing but frustration. The more expensive clubs are meant to be played on by experts, so your lower skill level is just going to clash with their design, and you will be left with a bunch of clubs that you utterly despise, and paid a huge amount of money for. Therefore any beginning golfer should carefully choose the clubs that they buy based on a few different things, rather than just the reviews and price tag. If you consider these things, you will be a happier golfer in the long run, and you will most likely be able to increase your skill level at a much higher rate.

The main thing you want to look for in golf clubs is flexibility. I’m not talking about the kind of flexibility that determines how much your golf club bends when you swing it. I’m talking about the kinds of golf clubs that are very forgiving to those who don’t have as much of an idea as to what they are doing. The best kind of flexible golf club is the one that is adjustable. Rather than deciding on set measurements and details, you can spend a little bit extra and get golf clubs that are able to change at the flick of the wrist. Since you are a beginner and your gameplay habits have not fully developed (or perhaps have not even begun to develop), it’s best to play it safe until you can have a better idea as to what you personally need in order to succeed.

About the Kayak

Where did the Kayak come from?


The kayak has been around for over 4000 years. It was created almost out of necessity by the people of the Arctic in order for them to be able to hunt and fish away from their frozen landscape on which they lived. At first, kayaks were constructed out of driftwood as there were no trees that were in the areas from which to get the wood that would make the frame.

Usually a husband and wife would work together to make this craft for themselves or the male to use. The wife would sew seal skins together to be stretched over the wooden frame that was made by the male. The wife would then make an insert that would fit over the cockpit to keep the craft water tight as many of the Arctic people were unable to swim. This is where the term Eskimo roll comes from.

Kindle Fire HD Tablet for Kids – Product Review

Choosing an Educational Tablet for Kids – my Grandkids


This Christmas I decided I wanted to get my grand kids something educational and cool to use.  I have two precious little boy grandsons, age 3 and 5 and 1/2.  Their parents are missionaries just arrived back in the States on furlough.  My daughter will be homeschooling them.

I had been looking for a learning tablet for kids several years now to get them; however on the mission field, they do not have good internet, but now that they are back in the states for a couple of years, the internet is no problem.

Things to do in Bella Vista Arkansas – includes Shopping

Bella Vista is for Shopping as well as Relaxing

Bella Vista, Arkansas, one of the top “places to retire,” is known for its natural beauty and variety of things to do – especially outdoor activities. These activities include golf, tennis, pickleball, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, volleyball, hiking, and cycling.  I see many people doing these activities as I drive around Bella Vista and there are even more things to do that are less strenuous, like walking, creating art and playing card games.  I’ve read where there are over 100 different clubs in Bella Vista.  And if you are not active in one of those clubs or in many other activities popular here, then you can always enjoy dining at one of Bella Vista’s excellent dining spots.  Some of these are:

My Top Facts about Volleyball

First, what is Volleyball?

Wikipedia –

 

Wikipedia has this basic description about Volleyball:

“Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams made up of six players are separated by a net. Each team attempts to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules. 

and 

It also states that Beach volleyball, is a variation of the game played on sand and with only two players per team.”

 

However, I’ve played volleyball for almost 20 years and most of the recreational volleyball I’ve played is with six players whether I’ve played indoors or outdoors.  (I’m sure that is to allow more people to participate).  I’ve played and coached all ladies volleyball in recreational leagues and our own USBA Ladies team.  I’ve also played lots of recreational Co-Ed volleyball(mixed men and women teams).  In fact, I met my husband playing indoor Co-Ed volleyball.

How to Write About Your Own Art?

Artists can have writer’s block too when describing their art!

As an artist, I have found that writing about my own art can be a little difficult. I tend to have “writer’s block” when talking (or in this case “writing”) about my own art creations. Maybe you have problems with this also.

Yet, as an artist wanting to promote and sell our artistic creations, it is important to be able to write a good description of the specific art you want to sell. Sometimes you may only need a few sentences, but being able to describe your art in such a compelling way that a viewer will become interested in purchasing it is something all artists should grow to be comfortable doing.

Maye you were formally trained in art, art theory, techniques, and history, but the average person cannot relate to talking about a artworks Form, Composition, techniques, etc.  This means you really need to describe it using more of a marketing method. Describe it as having features your potential buyer can relate to. Size, colors, impact, and what emotions the art evokes is something everyone can relate to and connect with. Help the customer use their imagination as they view your artwork by describing a mood or visual effect the work has.

Learn to use adjectives and descriptive words in writing about your art. Here’s a link to a nice article with lists of many descriptive words.

The colors in an artwork can be very expressive as to its mood and meaning. Check out this cool article about the meaning of colors and all the adjectives that can be expressed about color used in an artwork.

How do you play pickleball?

What IS Pickleball?


A few months ago, I would be the one asking that question.  I’m not sure I had ever heard anything about “pickleball” before my husband and I moved to Bella Vista, Arkansas in July of 2016.  My husband retired in June of 2016 and we already had purchased our retirement home here in Bella Vista.  Once we closed on the sale of our home in White Hall, Arkansas, we packed up and moved here.  My husband, Mel, lost no time starting to go to exercise at the recreational centers here and scheduling classes several times a week.  I think he heard about pickleball at one of the classes or we learned on Facebook or at the library.  I can’t remember exactly how it can up, but we learned a group played Mon-Wed-Friday mornings at Metfield.  So we decided to check it out.  There was a good group there playing the morning we went to watch.  Mel decided it looked like fun and when we got home he asked me to find a pickleball racket online and order it for him.  So I did.  A few days later, he was up bright and early to join the pickleball players with his new paddle.

That first time, he was just learning some of the rules and how to play the doubles that the group played.  He loved it and found it to be great exercise.  It looked fun to me also.  If I wasn’t in this wheelchair, I would be out there playing.  But I go ever so often and take pics of the group playing to post on facebook.  The group seems to get bigger and bigger and one reason is that my husband invites most people we meet to come to try it out.  Several have and love it too.
