Hello... it’s me... can you hear me? Actually, 10 small golf ball brands didn’t have a choice but to listen.
Fun Facts: In April of 2015 Acushnet (Titleist) filed a lawsuit against the following brands: Ariva Golf, Dixon Golf, Inc., I Need the Ball, Kick X Golf, Lightning Golf, Monsta Golf, Rife Golf, Saintnine, Vice Golf and 3 Up Golf. In the suit, Titleist claimed that three of their patents were being used without their permission or license. One design patent specifically was being violated by all ten defendants. Titleist holds the patent for the arrangement of dimples on a 318 dimpled golf ball more specifically the “triangular dipyramid dimple pattern.”
Bonus Fun Fact: none of the defendants actually design or manufacture their own balls. Instead they all get their golf balls made by the same company, Foremost Golf Manufacturing based in Taipei, Taiwan. Foremost isn’t listed in the lawsuit. As a start-up brand, all you needed to do was contact Foremost and select from a catalog of ball designs and they’d start manufacturing golf balls for you.
Super Bonus Fun Facts: at the time the lawsuit was filed Foremost was manufacturing 10 million golf balls a month for numerous golf ball brands. One of their clients is Wilson Golf.
Ball specifics: Titleist Pro V1x (2015/16 edition) play number 4 • pink player Sharpie markings • found on the right hand side of the 13th at Harding • swipe for more pictures of the ball
Notable pros, men: Jordan Spieth

“I was raised near St. Louis, MO. When I was 21, I leased a house with some friends, which eventually ended up getting taken over by traveler kids. I’ve been on foot now for a little over five years, on and off. The best part for me is by far the freedom of not having to be anywhere, anytime. The worst parts vary depending on the area – sometimes it’s the people, the weather, trying to find food. I’ve learned too much to list but the most important is sustainability.”

Has something lost in Mumbai? Take a look at the Chor bazaar!
The word in Hindi and Marathi Chor means "thief". The market is believed to have been originally named Shor Bazaar, a noisy market📢. However, the market really began to resell stolen things, and the result was a new name🕶. According to the popular tradition, if you lose anything in Mumbai you are able to buy it again at the Chor-bazar.
In fact, they traded here simply with things that were already in use, but, as a rule, the stolen goods are enough also, especially since it is hardly possible to prove the theft.
It is located in the Muslim part of Mumbai and Indian guides👳 do not lead customers here. That’s a big mistake! These kinds of antiques – the Chinese porcelain, a wooden sculpture, the miniatures and old posters – you can find nowhere in India🇮🇳.
🧦 HOUSEKEEPING 🧤We’ve acquired quite the collection of lost properly over the last few months, and we’re running out of space to stash it in our little cubby in Fowlds. Any items not collected by the end of March will be donated to charity. It’s all photographed here - anyone recognise anything?! #lostandfound#lostproperty#charityshop
1 year today.🎉 25 February 2017.
The only thing I remember running through my head that moment was – Be cool. Don't cry. Don't faint. .

If you have been following my story so far, I guess I just wanted to share with my friends here, how this whole 'Buray'-mania started for me, and why I became such a Turkophile.
By some twist of fate, Buray's 'Sen Sevda Misin' was intertwined into my unfortunate love story and I guess this is why Buray will always have a special place in my heart. .
And to meet the boy who soothed my wounded soul with his music, witnessing 'Sen Sevda Misin' performed 'live' ... was goosebumps-inducing. .
2017 was a year of healing and recovery for me. Things started looking up and I felt better with each passing day. A lot has to do with keeping myself occupied with work and channeling my energy on things that makes me happy, like Buray and his music.
It gives me a lot of joy designing those Buray posts and engaging on Instagram with Buray fans has opened up a whole new world for me, taking my mind off my sadness and helping me move on.
Perhaps now, looking back, what happened in 2015 seemed so trivial. I was just another broken-hearted girl who lost her way and found it through music.
At the risk of sounding cliche, time does heal. But it is also a matter of how, and the ones who helped you on that journey (whether they realise it or not) that makes the difference. 😊

My second Thames Valentine is an engraved penny. Engraved coins were popular during the 19th century, and also ended up in the river in reasonable numbers. Smoothed or worn pennies, or larger silver coins such as shillings or crowns, provided the perfect miniature canvas, and the quality of the workmanship varied from the simplest scratching to beautiful and detailed engraving. Sometimes the coins feature names, addresses, dates and short verses, and the less literate, or more artistically inclined, may have covered their coins with patterns, flowers or leaves. The engraved coin I found is a smooth old penny with the simple words ‘J Tweed, 9 April 1864’ scratched roughly into the surface. Jane Tweed? John Tweed? We will never know.

Thanks for all the prayers for Delta girl! She’s doing a lot better. We just got her home and she’s getting a little play time outside. The doctors said they extracted over 18ml of bacteria from inside her leg and hip. She has been fighting this infection since we found her. Not really sure exactly where she got it from, but she’s in good hands now 😊 we find out more next week when the lab results come back but for now her fever went down and she’s not in pain anymore. She’s back wagging her tail and back to her normal self wanting to jump into my truck wherever I go! If you all don’t know already, our 4 dogs are our children. They are not full need anything. They are mutts, rescues, mixed breeds, but they are our world. Thanks for all of the love and prayers for Delta girl. Glad to see her back waggin her tail and chasing her brother around the yard! I just hope the medicine knocks the rest of this out and keeps her healthy! Thanks again to the staff at Sherwood South Animal Hospital and the Specialty Clinic next door. They take such good care of our animals when they are in need. Highly recommended. #SwampAssassin#PawStaff#PuppyLove#Delta#DeltaStrong#Mississippi#SideOfTheRoadKennels#LostAndFound#Rescue#SuperPup
