The Master's golf tournament, discriminating and Noah's ark.

  • Print

It's the start of the Master's Golf Tournament.  It's a golf event held at the all men's club in Augusta.  However there's a problem this year as the club has always made the CEO's of the major sponsors members.  The CEO of IBM:  Ginni Rometty one of 12 female CEO's in the Fortune 500.  It was IBM that pressured golf clubs to end discrimination and allow black members in 1990.  Yes. 1990, not 1890 or 1960, amazing. 
So I got to thinking how I discriminate and what does the word mean.  So I went searching.  It's from a Latin term meaning to divide.  Now when it isn't referring to human beings discriminating can helpful.  I  descriminate smells dividing them into pleasant and more like the cat box needs cleaning.  I'm descriminating when it comes to music, dividing my work out music on my iPod from the music I listen to while stretching in yoga. 
    I was doing just that to some Pat Metheny Map of the World music when I got so relaxed I just laid on the floor and listened.  I actually felt the music tickling my ear hairs.  I mean those tiny little ones, oh crap I'm not going to get out of this with any dignity. 
    So to change the subject totally I saw this on the web.....an amazing treehouse. 

 

It reminded my of another carpenter:  Noah, the ark builder.  That reminded me of Bill Cosby and so I leave you with this:              Margo
