Futures Quotes - The future has several names_G8_2005

ref. from my very 1st web-log

"The future has several names. For the weak, it is the impossible. For the faint-hearted, it is the unknown. For the thoughtful and valiant, it is the ideal."

by Victor Hugo (ref. Quote of the Day, 2 July 2005, from Arcamax_com)

Unfortunately the Super Scooter, my wife Françoise & I used to visit the Isles "Les Saintes" Guadeloupe, (Gwada for short) French Antilles, is not a fully life-cycle accredited electric & photovoltaic job. But this will be coming soon. Our journey to "audit" Teaching Staff & living conditions there was entirely paid by our Carbon Credits. We "walked the talk." as an X-ray of my knees can testify, a biometrical id witness.

G8 Gleneagles Scotland best known for Golf Courses & Greens. Could be worth some thought?

Web logged:
From an ex-caddy at the Scottish Amateur Golf Championship at Western Gailes perhaps the most beautiful course in South West of Scotland at the time, around 1960. Two rounds caddied, 18 holes each, my first consultancy job! With only 2 months school holiday playing experience, loaned clubs of a varied nature & quality, on the local public course (Irvine-Municipal) I was terrorised throughout at the idea of giving bad advice. Was I glad "we" lost that second round. I remember because I needed spectacles to read the school blackboard the following September, or the one after. In spite of moving to sit at the front of the class I still couldn't read the board, but learned early (not as early as some) that it can be comfortable to sit below a teachers gaze!
