Meeting People

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

On the same note as my post las week “Time to Reconnect and Disconnect – I decided to take some time this past weekend to go golfing as well as to go to my first ever book signing: Alison Arngrim (actress who played Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie) (one of my all time favorite shows).

I recently went out golfing for the first time with Doug at my favorite course Foxford Hills. I only got out a few times last year and I was not sure what the outing would be like. Read more

Golf Already?

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I am very excited to say that tomorrow will mark my first golf outing for 2009. It is hard to believe it is already time to get back out on the course – but I look forward to it especially after the last month or so of non-stop work. Read more

Back to the Snow

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I just returned from a four day trip to FL to visit some family…and to play some golf – both which were enjoyable. I am not much of a warm weather person, but I did enjoy the break from the snow here in Chicago (the most we have seen here in ten years). I am hoping to now get caught up with work. I will note that having my iPhone with me on the trip was extremely key. Not only was I able to keep on top of most of my email, but it entertained Evan on the plane with... Read More » Read more

My Next 3 Wood: PING G10

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 3 Comments

It is freezing outside so I thought I would post about golf to warm up a bit. Over the last three or four years, I have replaced every single club in my golf bag. I have thoroughly enjoyed all my clubs (PING G2 irons 2-S, Titleist 975J driver, PING G5 putter), but I have not had much luck with finding a good 3 wood. Last year I bought a 2 iron to try and replace my longer fairway shot needs, but even though I can hit it really well and it had become my favorite club in my bag, I... Read More » Read more

Time To Clean Out the Trunk…

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 4 Comments

Well – I think it is finally time to take my golf clubs out of my trunk. I spent the morning yesterday getting the driveway clear with the snowblower (it was like Christmas to me). I love the snow, using the snow blower, and being out in the cold (think: free air conditioning). Unfortunately, this means I will have to give up golf for a few months. Oh well, but hopefully we will get some more snow so I can enjoy another hour or so using the snowblower. Read more

a full bag.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 4 Comments

I have had a busy summer so far but had made time for golf almost weekly. I purchased a new putter a few weeks ago and now it is time to fill out the bag – with a 2 iron (my Grandpa Z would be proud) and a gap wedge – both Ping G2 to match the rest of my irons. I am hoping to order them tomorrow to have them for next weekend’s golf trip. Not too many people like or even carry a 2 iron, but my 3 iron – an enemy last year – has been my...

back from vacation.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

Amy, Evan, and I just got back from a vacation to the east coast to visit some friends and family. We got to see our friend Ken’s family first and then headed off to to my house our annual (39th) Evans’ family reunion. My grandmother and I took the euchre tournament this year (I have not had it since 2000) and we are all exhausted from all the traveling. I look forward to not driving for awhile…as well as using my high speed connection v. my parent’s dial-up. I only opened my laptop to watch some Curb Your Enthusiasm”. Back... Read More » Read more

Golf HOWTOs

staying anonymous on the internet.

Posted by: Jennifer Zelazny | 0 Comments

I have recently started using Tor for improved security and privacy when working out of certain locations. Not that I have much to hide but I do not want someone watching all my outgoing network traffic. Tor is also helpful if you are using a computer somewhere where they block ports (thus blocking services such as IM). I also started using Privoxy too with Tor to make my network connections even more private. If you are all curious about security and privacy, check out Tor and Privoxy. Read more
