Foot Golf at the Wigwam

The Wigwam Golf Club has unveiled a new FootGolf program on the club's Patriot Course. FootGolf is a fun and growing sport that requires players to kick a soccer ball into cups/holes located yards away from golf greens by using as few attempts as possible. Combining elements found on a soccer field with those found on a golf course, FootGolf is easy for anyone to pick-up and enjoy. The course is shorter, the cups are bigger (21-inches) and the entire family can play together. Plus, FootGolf can be played in about half the time as a round of golf.

The Garden Guy: Winter weed control

Due to the drop in temperature there is less evaporation and more moisture in the soil which causes the weeds to germinate.  There are many steps you can take to help control the weeds in your yard.   There is no way to completely eliminate weeds from your yard.  Here are some common and natural ways to deal with weeds.

Manually weeding: Using a shovel or your hands to remove the weeds

Spreading corn gluten granules:  This will prevent future weed seeds from germinating for a period of time, this will need to be reapplied each season and does not eliminate existing weeds.

Spraying 10% vinegar solution:  10% Vinegar is very potent.  Make sure you wear a mask, gloves and eye protection when applying as it may irritate your skin and eyes.  This will kill existing weeds in your yard; it will not prevent any weeds from sprouting in the future.  Be careful where you apply this as it may kill your grass and plants so only apply directly to the weeds.  Do not apply if it is windy or raining.

You will want to follow all these steps and combine them to start a good weed care regiment for your yard.  Everyone will have weeds in their yard from time to time, it is best to avoid chemical based products when natural solutions work better and are much safer for you and your family.

The cold shoulder versus the bold shoulder a 2016 trend going strong and a new trend for 2017

  • Fashion always comes full circle the "cold shoulder" fashions of the 90s are in full swing into 2017
  • Reminiscent of the "bold shoulder" fashions of the 80s, we're seeing more details on tops, the opposite of the cold shoulder look
  • Both flattering looks, picking one trend over the other is pure preference
