I was just about to give up when suddenly I felt an electrical force enter my right hand that shot all the way up to my shoulder. What did it feel like? When I was eight, I had climbed up a short ladder in our basement so I could try to pull out a plug. I accidentally placed my fingers on the prongs. An electrical charge ran up my arm, causing me to fall backward off the ladder. It was somewhat painful; however, it frightened me more than it hurt. That was a very similar feeling.

The 16th hole is the best offering of the track. There's nothing fancy about it, measuring a meager 370 yards. What makes it such a great hole is the hugely elevated tee box, allowing us common folk to swing out of our shoes in an attempt to carry the green in one. Of course, there's a risk factor as well, with cars zipping by on highway 36 just a slice away. In an attempt to avoid a multi-traffic pile up, Hansard bailed right, then flubbed his approach. With 15 feet to a birdie and redemption, things were looking promising for a tight finish. Things went south quickly when Hans scrambled up a par while I three-rolled for a bogey. Two down with two to play, and my opportunity to finally break out of a losing slump was quickly beginning to fade.

Next up is a very short par three, requiring a sawed-off wedge shot if you want to avoid a very long putt for par. I had my own pin-rattling moment on this guy, but with a big bending 12-footer left for birdie, only found the cup in three. After a couple of basic par fours, the course gets real interesting.

Sense and Sensibility - I think this is her darkest book, but you'll get a lot out of it. I see many parallels between this book and Becoming Jane. Elinor Dashwood is an exceptional heroine, her strength and resolve is inspiring. For a movie choice, I cast my ballot with Emma Thompson's version. She takes some liberties with the stories, but good ones. She edited parts out with utmost care and added a bit here and there to enhance the audience's understanding of this complex novel.

In the other direction there was no traffic at all. Logic dictated that there must have been a bad accident there which had closed down the highway altogether in that direction. A few minutes later and we watched a snow plow make a path for the ambulance on the Reno-bound side of the highway. Whoever had been hurt was now headed for the hospital. We were grateful for that. More calls home.

So many people try to rationalize away those odd rather unexplainable happenings. If remain vigilant, you may realize that there is so much more to this world than we know.

The thing is, nothing raises your insurance rates like being in an accident. And nothing screams, "Help yourself to a piece of this ten car pile-up" like winter and road construction! You're obviously going to do everything possible to prevent yourself from ending up in that situation, but bad things happen to good people every day. The secret is to minimize the impact those "bad things" are going to have on your auto insurance quotes.
