IF YOU GET SICK, NEVER DEPEND ON SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY TO SUPPORT YOUR FAMILY!
I have always tried to do what is fair and right! Unfortunately,now if you do what is right it ends up being wrong. I started having problems over 2 yrs ago and have repeatedly applied for disability. I did as asked by social security and went to their doctors two times,both times in pain. both times their doctors reported that i was abled to work full time. I knew i had serious problems, but was,nt sure what it was. Now after a recent visit to a local Emergency room, i have been diagnosed with Intermittent Claudication and Vaso -Occlusive diesease of the legs. This diesease is blockage of leg arteries from poor circulation of blood in the leg arteries and the build-up of plaque in the arteries. This problem causes tired ,weakness in legs,pain in feet and lower legs as well as muscle soreness after exertion.(working,walking,shopping,etc.) Rest helps some,but mine is so bad sometimes i have pain while trying to sleep. The more i expert the pain and condition worsens. Now, social security expects me to work,with my condition worsening daily,to the point i feel i could be in a wheelchair within the next few weeks. I have a charity hospital organization trying to get me in to see a vascular surgeon, but it takes time. I have no private insurance. Once again ,i tried to do what was right and deal with social security without hiring a lawyer. Now due to this my family has no income,and i am to physically sick to even work part time.Iam seeking help,but am faced with possible surgeries and no income. SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY DOES NOT CARE! iAM IN THIS CONDITION AND HAVE BEEN DENIED HELP 2 TIMES! I have hired a lawyer now, but the process takes years and i have no income to support my family.Never trust social security and their doctors if you have a worsening medical condition that will cause you to be unable to work. SOCIAL SECURITY DOES NOTCARE!!! HIRE A LAWYER AS FAST AS POSSIBLE!

WHERE DID THE GOLF TERMS EAGLE,BIRDY,PAR AND BOGEY ORIGINATE?
The term 'birdie' originated in the United States in 1899. In H.B. Martin's "Fifty Years of American Golf" there is an account of a foursomes match played at the Atlantic City CC, in which one of the players, Ab Smith relates, "My ball came to rest within six inches of the cup. I said, 'That was a bird of a shot. I suggest that when one of us plays a hole in one under par he receives double compensation.' The other two players agreed and we began right away, just as soon as the next one came, to call it a birdie" In 19th centruy American slang, 'bird' referred to anyone or anything excellent or wonderful.
Once the term 'birdie' became common, people started referring to a core one better than a 'birdie' as an 'eagle'. One better than an "eagle", was an 'albatross' - an even bigger eagle!
The origin of the word BOGEY:
The term 'bogey' comes froma song that was popular in Britain in the early 1890s called "The Bogey Man" (later known as "The Colonel Bogey March"). The character of the song was an elusive figure who hid amongst the shadows saying, "I'm the Bogey Man, catch me if you can."
In Britain, golfers equated the quest for the elusive Bogey Man with the quest for the elusive perfect score. By the mid-to-late 1890s, the term 'bogey score' referred to the ideal score a good player could be expected to make on a hole under perfect conditions. It also came to be used to describe stroke play tournaments. In about 1910, the term 'par' began to be used, designating the number of shots a scratch player could be expected to take on a hole in ideal conditions. In this way 'par' was distinguished from 'bogey'. 'Par' itself is a standard sporting term meaning 'level' or 'even'.
Where did the golf terms Eagle,birdy,par and bogey orinate?
Christmas Morning Golf
Four old-timers were playing their weekly game of golf, and one remarked how nice it would be to wake up on Christmas morning, roll out of bed and without an argument, go directly to the golf course, meet his buddies and play a round.
His buddies all chimed in and said, "Let's do it! We'll make it a priority, figure out a way and meet here early Christmas morning."
Months later, that special morning arrives, and there they are on the golf course.
The first guy says, "Boy this game cost me a fortune! I bought my wife such a diamond ring that she can't take her eyes off it."
Number 2 guy says, "I spent a ton, too. My wife is at home planning the cruise I gave her. She was up to her eyeballs in brochures."
Number 3 guy says "Well my wife is at home admiring her new car, reading the manual."
They all turned to the last guy in the group who is staring at them like they have lost their minds.
"I can't believe you all went to such expense for this golf game. I woke up, slapped my wife on the butt and said, 'Well babe, Merry Christmas! It's a great morning for either sex or golf" and she said "Take a sweater.

A Few Keys to Efficient Golf Practice
Whether it's in baseball, hockey, soccer, tennis or any other sports that involves a ball, there is a feeling of immense satisfaction and pride that comes from hitting the ball solidly. Nowhere does this apply more than in golf, where the small ball goes where it wants on anything but a solid shot.
If you want to hit the ball solidly on a consistent basis, the only way is through practice and more practice.
Though you may not think so, the best time to practice is right after a round. Everything that didn't work for you during the round is fresh in your mind, and your body and mind are ready to go. Failure to work consistently on the shots that regularly give you the most trouble means your game won't soon improve.
The key to maximizing your efficiency in practice is creating 'real' situations. Ideally, you would mirror what happened in your round and employ your best swings. Also work on hitting balls from every bad lie you can think of. Obviously, it's extra important to practice if you haven't played for a while.
Boost your game further by visualizing a round of golf during lunch or breaks, on your way to or home from work, etc. Imagine taking many good swings and hitting a great shot each time. See your entire body flowing in unison through each shot, completely tension-free. This isn't useless preparation. You are increasing your muscle memory and preparing them for the next round.
If you enjoy other sports, you can transfer movements in these sports to help your golf game. For instance, the way you shift your weight on a tennis backhand shot is very similar to the bodyweight transfer on a golf shot. Use the tennis experience to remember what you need to do on the links. For detailed steps on how to swing properly we suggest you pick up a copy of the Senior Golfers Guide - it's a 210 page ebook dedicated to Senior Golfers; full of great advice, tips and lessons in golf.
When you're hitting a lot of balls in one session, remember to take a break between swings. You will avoid mental and physical exhaustion and can use the time to process what you've learned or accomplished. Remember, you're not out there to hit a thousand shots, rather a few beautiful ones. Hitting 20-30 balls at a time is sufficient practice, especially if the majority of these are struck on the sweet spot of the clubface.
To hit a more accurate shot and promote better contact, pull out your favorite iron and try this exercise: take two tees and stick them in the ground a couple of inches apart. (You can also use two balls.) Try (air)swinging your iron through the tees without hitting them. Start with partial swings and work your way up to full swings as you get better at avoiding the tees. Soon you will be hitting the ball more solidly.
It may sound corny, but don't forget the feeling of a good shot. Memorize it and internalize it, then practice it and you will soon be able to produce it consistently. It's very easy to lose the feeling of a great shot because there are so many variables that went into hit, from hand position, proper grip and good pre-swing body alignment to the right ball position, clubface impact and follow-through.

Buttercups & Golf Balls
Towards the end of the golf course, Dave hit his ball into the woods and found it in a patch of pretty yellow buttercups. Trying to get his ball back into play, he ended up thrashing just about every buttercup in the patch.
All of a sudden . .. .POOF!!
In a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared. She said, 'I'm Mother Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups? Just for doing what you have done, you won't have any butter for your popcorn for the rest of your life: better still, you won't have any butter for your toast for the rest of your life... As a matter of fact, you'll never have any butter for anything the rest of your life!!!
Then POOF! . . . she was gone!
After Dave recovered from the shock, he hollered for his friend, 'Fred, where are you?'
Fred yells back 'I'm over here in the pussy willows.'
Dave shouts back, 'DON'T SWING, Fred; FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DON'T SWING!!!'
