HappyUP!!! - Power vs Force                               
Why it happened - I was listening to something
Why it makes me happy -I read this book LONG before the author of the podcast did. It was a great reminder of a couple of things. The biggest one was the book itself and the concepts. Nice res-set.

HappyUP!!! - sandy on 12                             
Why it happened - skills
Why it makes me happy - most people don't have THAT shot!

HappyUP!!! Day 4823

HappyUP!!! -  dropping back                              
Why it happened - it was only right
Why it makes me happy - ya know, you really learn some things about people by the things they do... or don't do. Me? It felt good to do the right thing

HappyUP!!! - the Angster                               
Why it happened - I dropped back
Why it makes me happy - LOVE this guy. He's a smart guy. I like that. He gave me a GREAT tip on something AND some insightful information. 

HappyUP!!! - my kicks

HappyUP!!! Day 4822

HappyUP!!! - "signs" of a percolation                              
Why it happened - a week off?
Why it makes me happy - putted outrageously well (made 4 putts that you just don't make...and about 4 more that you miss), the bunker game was solid (2 sandies), and hit 4 shots that were of EXTREMELY high quality (not just talking outcome). Yeah...I kind of topped about 4 shots too ...but I drove it a little better. Perhaps my "time in the weeds" (it has been a bit) is coming to an end

HappyUP!!! -World Cup                                
Why it happened - they do that
Why it makes me happy -it's amazing how nasty some people get when you talk about women's soccer. To soccer purists...the ones that are glued to the "whatever" leagues they play in Europe...I get it. Yet, David Beckham was at a game yesterday and trumps the snobs. It's a sport being played at it's highest level on a world stage. It seems that should be enough. Then, there are those that say, "there is no scoring,"...and these guys will watch a baseball yawnfest for 3.5 hrs.
Nope...I really don't get any of those people. Just happy I am not one of them. 

HappyUP!!! - getting the paperwork submitted                               
Why it happened - there was a deadline
Why it makes me happy - we NEED to do this better! Yet...we got it done. The new fiscal year is looking good

HappyUP!!! - Marianne Williamson being ridiculed                               
Why it happened - people are so small
Why it makes me happy -Marianne can take it. The close-mindedness of the medial is just comical. No, she isn't going to be a serious candidate...but...she is in touch with more people than given credit for. Will her fan base vote for her? Hey, my vote in California doesn't matter but, if it were tomorrow, that is EXACTLY where my vote would go.

HappyUP!!! - a playful older cat                               
Why it happened - she is being inspired
Why it makes me happy - my skitty kitty is taking some cues from her little brother. He is showing her that, if she wants attention, she needs to make herself available to it. It's slow...but I am seeing changes in her behavior. 

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

HappyUP!!! -   reviewing a submission

HappyUP!!! - picking up a "no ID" call                               
Why it happened - I really don't know
Why it makes me happy - "no ID"...who picks up a phone call that says that? Apparently, I do. I don't usually. I am soooo thankful. This was an important one

HappyUP!!! - the garden                               
Why it happened - I have one
Why it makes me happy - well, I don't know about the yields just yet...but they look least on some of the plants. I'll take a better inventory tomorrow. The cakes are spreading like crazy...don't usually grow those. The new system is making "the juice worth the squeeze."

Why it happened - my city does that
Why it makes me happy -well, IF they HAD to spend all of that money they did, I guess they might has well have done it right! None of the bridges are open yet but it's an impressive amount of passages they have going down to the park. It will be cool when the bike trail punches through as well. Less than a month to go

HappyUP!!! - US Women's Soccer                               
Why it happened - it's World Cup
Why it makes me happy -they won!!!....BARELY!!!...but...they won. If they lose to France Friday, it won't be a shocker. Today SHOULD have been an upset

HappyUP!!! - the Fifth Agreement                               
Why it happened - an add on was needed
Why it makes me happy - I used to use the Four Agreements when conducting meetings as well as my own life. I got a nice little refresher course in the basic four. I like the 5th skeptical but learn to listen.  This is especially helpful as you hear all of the politics that continue to get ginned up.

HappyUP!!! - invitation                               
Why it happened - my buddy is in town
Why it makes me happy - it is going to be great hearing this guy do a little jamming tomorrow night. Good excuse to get outside on a cooler night

Why it happened - I had a bookmark
Why it makes me happy -I am SO GLAD that I don't have this disruptive force in my life as we speak. I never have when under my has existed on my periphery. This reminder I saw today will equip me to help others. is a thing. Get just ONE of these people near you and it is bad news

HappyUP!!! Day 4816

HappyUP!!! -  that putt on 9                              
Why it happened - I NEVER give up
Why it makes me happy -when the tree slapped the ball back to me on my second shot...with a TON of importance ($$$) on the line...most would get mad, slam a club...whatever. I calmly said, "OK..that was a bad break...back to business..."...and hit the nicest little hooked, low 7 iron to 40 feet on the green. All you want is a chance....and...that chance? was MONEY!!! It turned a LOSS into a win on the front

HappyUP!!! - pinch wedge 14                                
Why it happened - I got skills
Why it makes me happy -the tees are up...I nailed that drive...NOPE, not that far with the big hitters...but very well placed. That is only part of the equation. I took the risk of taking the big stick out...HIT the drive...but then pinched a wedge RIGHT THERE on the money

HappyUP!!! - Permission Granted...Permission Terminated                               
Why it happened - people are small

Why it happened - a decision
Why it makes me happy was a tough big...I kept it from being a total disaster. Oh yeah, we got the crap beat out of us on the course...I was struggling...but...kept up the fight. That is all you can do when the opposition is throwing everything at don't have a strong answer.

HappyUP!!! -   birdie on 13                             
Why it happened - the bladie wedge
Why it makes me happy -my opponent had just holed the most unlikely of shots...a pitch in from 75 yards from under the trees. I was just short of the green. Many would take out the putter....but I WANTED to MAKE IT!...and chose the riskier shot. BOOM! Fabulous topper!

Why it happened - opened an old book

Why it happened - I needed to
Why it makes me happy -the front was an "S-show." Made a couple of boo boos on the back but, considering the way things has gone, finished as strong as I could. May even have found that "one little piece" that has been missing.  INSANELY good bunker shot from the upslope on 15

HappyUP!!! - US Open                               
Why it happened - it's a thing
Why it makes me happy -nice to see a nice guy, Gary Woodland, hold up under the pressure. Lovely setting there at Pebble Beach...would have been nice to see some wind. The marine layer made me remember that Monterey is only a few hours away anytime it gets a little toasty here. 

Winning with N
Gorgeous weather

Why it makes me happy -hadn't seen one of my neighbors in a bit. I was taken aback, "have you been losing weight or what?"  Turns out...over 100 pounds!!! I would have never guessed she had that much to lose. Triple digit loss is impressive at any age but this lady is 63. 

HappyUP!!! -neighbor conversation
Why it happened - they approached me
Why it makes me happy - we got to know each other a little better. I put aside a notion they had. I also gave them a solid reason we need MORE conservatives in California....just for balance. Texas needs more liberals. It is just how it should be.

HappyUP!!! - tomatoes showing
Why it happened -I planted...and water
Why it makes me happy-one of my tomatoes is actually turning color. I can't believe it. There is a chance that I will be getting tomatoes WAY before the 4th of July!

HappyUP!!! -2 birdies                                   
Why it happened -some great shooting
Why it makes me happy -when you aren't hitting it really well, birdies are like a tall, cool glass of water in the desert! Pretty 9 iron on 6 and a VERY well played pitch shot on 4.

HappyUP!!! - pitch shot on 2
Why it happened -skills
Why it makes me happy -I made a bogey on 1. I didn't want to start with two of them. The pitch shot I had was difficult and tricky. For some reason, I thought that I was going to make it. I hit released nicely, picked up some speed on the downslope, made a turn for the hole and ...BAM!!!...a violent lip out. It was harder than I made it look

HappyUP!!! - Stanley Cup
Why it happened -they do that
Why it makes me happy -who doesn't love a game any sport? It was nice to see St Louis get their first one. You just have to love that as a fan of sport

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4805

HappyUP!!! -US Women Soccer                                  
Why it happened -it's the World Cup

HappyUP!!! - Robert Johnson documentary
Why it happened -I was Netflix surfing
Why it makes me happy - I knew a little about this legend...and now I know a lot more. He was a very interesting character. It appears he started the "27 Club" that Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jim Morrison, etc. He is a mythical creature. Great to get some education

HappyUP!!! - Anthony Jeselnik
Why it happened -Netflix
Why it makes me happy -OK...this guy is bad....but so dang funny! I was delighted when I saw he had a special on that I hadn't seen. This guy takes a concept.....and digs deeper into it than about any comic I know.  His cocky stage persona is almost as funny as his jokes

Monday, June 10, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4804

HappyUP!!! -  a squeaky clean outlook                                 
Why it happened -I took action
Why it makes me happy -it's not the cheapest thing to do but, considering it took two professionals about 3 hours each to clean all my windows, I'm patting myself on the back for that move. Keep me off the roof!

HappyUP!!! - Qballous wins over new fans
Why it happened - see the above
Why it makes me happy - those guys were in and out of the house the entire time. They have a job to do. Apparently, and not to my knowledge, they caught him and put him back in the house a few times. Still, toward the end of the day, they yelled, "Scott, we LOVE your cat!"

HappyUP!!! - Masterclass
Why it happened -I do that
Why it makes me happy -it's an exciting new day at MindValley. I can see them getting some momentum off of this deal. The ONE hesitancy I had about referring them is gone. Removing all of the options makes me assured that my friends will get EXACTLY what I have available to me. This is some life changing stuff. 

HappyUP!!! - practical submission work around
Why it happened -my friend tipped me off
Why it makes me happy- it's not in the time I get done with this should be. So glad I got the recommendation!

Sunday, June 09, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4803

HappyUP!!! - scrambling                                  
Why it happened -sketchy ball striking
Why it makes me happy -it wasn't pretty....but I carved out a decent score (and a NICE WIN) today because I still have a bit of touch around the greens. It's a nice thing to fall back on.

HappyUP!!! - my golf course
Why it happened -the superintendent and the weather
Why it makes me happy - I have been back to where I started golf for 8 years. I do not know how but, as I walked the fairways this morning, I could not help but notice the excellent condition the track is in. It has never been better. One of my playing partners mentioned the same thing. Beautiful

HappyUP!!! - birdies
Why it happened -VERY nice shots
Why it makes me happy - despite being a substandard striking day, I did hit 4-5 shots that you can go an entire entire week...without hitting. The 8 iron on 7 from a blind place was sweet...and so was that 15 foot right to lefter. The 9 iron on 15 was 2 inches from flying in the cup. Just need to get the driver behaving and I may be on to something.

HappyUP!!! - party and ping pong
Why it happened -a coming out party of sorts

Why it makes me happy-my buddy and his GF wanted to show off their pad. Nice spot in a super neighborhood. The ping pong tournament was fun and enjoyed by all who participated. I hadn't slapped the little ball back and forth in years (it was once a passion). 

Saturday, June 08, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4802

HappyUP!!! - Comcast WiFi                                  
Why it happened -I am a customer
Why it makes me happy -right before an important Zoom meeting, my systems went "you aren't connected to the server." I was connected to my wifi...but my modem wasn't getting me anywhere. Sure, I did the stops and reboots...nothing. Then, in my wifi choices, I saw Infinity customer...BAM! I kept the appointment

HappyUP!!! - life changing guidance
Why it happened -I'm an RTT practitioner
Why it makes me happy -I LOVE pointing people in the direction....that they have told me they want to go....even though....they didn't realize what that direction was. Giving them permission to see things differently....and, when they's why I am here. Great session today regarding confidence and trust in one's own thoughts

HappyUP!!! -systems back up
Why it happened -who knows
Why it makes me happy -I did my meeting described above. I figured my day would have time carved out figuring out what the heck happened. NOPE! It appears time cured the ills. Everything from printer to connectivity was right back on line when I went to "fix" it.

HappyUP!!! - not golfing
Why it happened -the tournament failed the test
Why it makes me happy-did I do all I could today? NOPE...but I did a bunch. A bunch more than I would have had I just "followed the sheep" like I usually do every year. Hey, it's a great tournament. It is a lot of fun. I just have much better things to do. 

Friday, June 07, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4801

HappyUP!!! - a GIANT                                   
Why it happened -who knows
Why it makes me happy -see that tiny tomato plant? It was planted way after my other ones. It was an after thought. It's not even 6 inches tall. Yet, today, I saw it bear a fruit as big as my other plants that are on the top tier of their cages. THIS guy (or maybe a gal...they seem to overachieve) is my hero for this year's garden!

HappyUP!!! - Warriors Game
Why it happened -it's the playoffs
Why it makes me happy -if the Dubs win or lose, I got no skin in this. There is a very interesting dynamic going on, however. It is wonderful to watch. The best team, the Raptors, is playing the defending champions who are depleted of their talent. If the Dubs were at full strength, this would not even be a contest...yet...the Dubs are trying. Durant WILL play in game 5...he is set up to be a legend. There is no downside to him stepping on that court.

HappyUP!!! -garage reorganization
Why it happened -part of the plan
Why it makes me happy -well, there is a part of me that says, "I could have done so much more." Sometimes I listen...sometimes I just go, "yep, you are right...but nothing could have easily been done shut the hell up!"'s a good thing

Thursday, June 06, 2019

HappyUP!!! Day 4800

Why it makes me happy - we agreed to "cut corners" a bit. Upon reflection, it didn't work for my partner. I'm glad we found a better way

HappyUP!!! - stuff to basement
Why it happened -it needed to
Why it makes me happy -a huge step? No. But, it was a step I hadn't taken. It's all about micro-movements daily. They add up over time. I can see the's still out there a ways...still a little fuzzy...but it is compelling

HappyUP!!! - garage painting
Why it happened - it's part of the plan
Why it makes me happy- the cabinets in the garage are a part of the metamorphosis that is going on. Big pat on my back for doing this extra little step. Ready to rock and roll!

HappyUP!!! Day 4799

HappyUP!!! -  blog post                                 
Why it happened -I do those
Why it makes me happy - GREAT IDEA for a running one today....and it has cross-benefit/utilization potential. No...the blogpost isn't's over at

HappyUP!!! - birdie on one
Why it happened -a wickedly good putt
Why it makes me happy - it wasn't for long but we actually were winning at one time today...after ONE! Everything after that was a butt kicking we received. It was OK...haven't seen that many birdies thrown against me in as long as I could remember. Expensive...but a joy to watch.

HappyUP!!! -staying under 100
Why it happened -lucky
Why it makes me happy - says we topped out at 99...the Ol Nutter Almanac doesn't take a "one off, BS" hit in the count. It's set at only 10 or less this year. Every day counts

HappyUP!!! -meat loaf
Why it happened -I bought one Monday
Why it makes me happy- I think saying, "meat loaf," should be reason enough. Yet, it does need to be good...and this definitely was! Multiple meals are coming from this baby!

HappyUP!!! Day 4798

HappyUP!!! - Shining Members                                  
Why it happened - they do that
Why it makes me happy -so proud of J's confidence, B's ingenuity, T's smile and ease, and M's first time out running the meeting. Great job. Super efficient meeting

HappyUP!!! -  Mayne Island
Why it happened - call with a friend
Why it makes me happy -I learned all about the entire South Channel/San Juan Island connection (they basically are on string of islands that should be called the same thing...BUT...can't have that due to being in different countries). Great time catching up

HappyUP!!! - Haircut
Why it happened - I do that

HappyUP!!! Day 4797

DAMN! I just love this little sack of potatoes
HappyUP!!! -extra time                                   
Why it happened -I renegotiated
Why it makes me happy -I needed an extra half  hour. I could have made my appointment on time but would have been stressed to finish up what I was doing. I asked for a half hour. My client said that he would do great with an hour. Nice win on both sides...stress avoided...all because I asked

HappyUP!!! -  chicken salad
Why it happened -grocery shopping
Why it makes me happy -I don't eat enough salad. I picked up some ready made chicken meat...DELICIOUS and healthy dinner

HappyUP!!! - client session
Why it happened - I help people
Why it makes me happy -interesting learnings on this one. There was even one trait that I could definitely relate to....well...there were 2.  It just furthers my hypothesis that "everybody's got something."

HappyUP!!! Day 4796

HappyUP!!! - reGAINING the NutterCUP!!!                                  
Why it happened -my brother
Why it makes me happy - great to see him play so well... especially when I was pooping my diaper.  Also, we now have a 3-1 margin...and a dollar lead. That 2 footer I had to "tap in" for the win on 18 might as well of been a 5 footer. Yeah, other combatants may SAY "this is no big deal," but, if they get real....they KNOW they want to win! If they don't, I wouldn't want to play.  GREAT times with the family!!!

HappyUP!!! - Warriors Win!!!
Why it happened -DeMarcus Cousins
Why it makes me happy - OK...Cuz didn't help himself in Sacramento...BUT...he was mistreated by a Kings organization that only attracts good things by dumb luck and, when they do, they do their best to mishandle it. With all of the injuries, it was GREAT to see him be the difference in last night's game. Deep down, Boogie is a good guy. Look no farther than work he kept doing in this town...long after he was lied to and put in harm's way year after year by an inept organization.  Hope the organization is getting better...jury is out on that topic

HappyUP!!! - a sub joining us at the turn
Why it happened - we are attractive
Why it makes me happy - it allowed me to walk the entire 18 holes. I much prefer walking to riding

HappyUP!!! - helping an acquaintenance
Why it happened - I made myself available and trusted my intuition
Why it makes me happy- I have been given tremendous gifts. It is my responsibility to repay the universe by assisting others with the tools I have been provided. Today...I did that

HappyUP!!! Day 4795

HappyUP!!! -  a left hand answer                                 
Why it happened -I do the practice
Why it makes me happy - The non-dominant brain....there is no question that we have fairly easy access to a MINIMUM of double our existing brain power.....without even doing any deep work. When you tap into that, life gets easier and juicer.  That is a no-brainer WIN!!!

HappyUP!!! - walking to the course
Why it happened - my truck is out on a humanitarian effort
Why it makes me happy - glad that I have other vehicles and I can offer this favor/service. It is my way of helping. It was also great to walk through the neighborhood with my golf buggy. My "peers" would think this odd..."I could have given you a ride."  While generous, why do I walk the course? For exercise. It only makes sense I would want to walk a bit extra over and back to the club. This will probably become a regular practice. It's a touch less strain on the environment as well.

HappyUP!!! - trading vids with a buddy
Why it happened - I reached out
Why it makes me happy - I LOVE being able to juggle. No, not to join the circus or to show off... but to have it be an example on what 5 minutes a day on something can do or result in. EVERYONE can find 5 minutes to improve themselves or start to develop a new skill or behavior. If you end up digging it, you will find more time for it. If it's a "it's cool but not really something I want to move forward," you end up with something like I have...the ability to fairly easily and competently do the three-ball cascade. 4th ball or chainsaws in my future.

HappyUP!!! - 3 birdies
Why it happened - putter was working
Why it makes me happy- good putting...and birdies....equals BIG WINS! It helps that my partner really laid it down today as well. Nice to see him shoot the lowest number he has in awhile
