209th post

"On September 11, 2001, 19 militants associated with the Islamic extremist 

group al-Qaeda hijacked four airliners and carried out suicide attacks 

against targets in the United States. Two of the planes were flown into the 

towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, a third plane hit the 

Pentagon just outside Washington, D.C., and the fourth plane crashed 

in a field in Pennsylvania. Often referred to as 9/11, the attacks resulted 

in extensive death and destruction, triggering major U.S. initiatives to 

combat terrorism and defining the presidency of George W. Bush. 

Over 3,000 people were killed during the attacks in New York City and 

Washington, D.C., including more than 400 police officers and 


In memory of this day referred to as 9-11, our America is doing memorable

events to remember that day.

Note: Sorry about the story (blog, post) I did not type last night. I should 

have at least typed and posted a note to you all last night.

I'm going to type only one story a day for a while and that will be posted 

in the morning. I have, what I believe, are 3 or 4 humorous videos

that I need to work on. I purchased Google's decoder for $69.00 a year,

a special, that will be $159.00 next year. I tried it yesterday and it 

displayed that arrow going clockwise and saying the player was 

loading. It seem to be stalled and after about 15 minutes, I went to 

work on something else.

It's about 5:00 AM, and Bill is watching TV and I'm just half watching half 

listening as usual and typing this story for today. 

The Antiques Road Show is on and we see a very large and white rooster

with a red comb that's very heavy to lift because Ryan was given a rooster

just like when we lived in the trailer park several miles north of Orrville.

The antique's expert asked the usual questions of the owner about how the 

rooster became a member of the family and others and after this usual 

interview was completed, the expert said that that old rooster maybe just

twelve steps south and back of the house is worth five to seven thousand 

dollars. Wow!


I remember talking to my Uncle Paul (my Mother, like me, liked Uncle Paul 

even when the rest of his blood-kin had given up on him (with the exception 

maybe of Aunt May and Uncle Jack and my brother, Roland and I'm sorry if 

I left someone out). He would come up to the door of the house and say 

something mostly respectful like, "I'd like to speak to Edith."

He lived in back of one of these businesses in a storage unit when I talked 

to him once, but Uncle lived in other places, not alone, but with his faithful

dog who always staid with him....

UFC 203 results: Stipe Miocic wins thrilling brawl over Alistair Overeem

By Dave Doyle  @davedoylemma on Sep 11, 2016, 12:46a 82 

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

"The allure of heavyweight fighting is that the hardest hitters can deliver 

ireworks at any moment.

And few heavyweight fights delivered whirlwind action like Stipe 

Miocic's UFC heavyweight title defense against Alistair Overeem on 

Saturday night in Cleveland.

Defending the title at Quicken Loans Arena in his hometown of

Cleveland, Miocic got out of several hairy situations before 

delivering a memorable knockout of Overeem to retain his title. 

The time of the finish in one of the most exciting one-round fights 

you'll ever see was 4:27 of the opening round.

"I train that s**t every day," said Miocic (16-2), who has won seven of 

his past eight fights. "I'm still the heavyweight champion of the world."

The raucous sellout crowd was behind the hometown boy from the 

beginning, but Overeem drew first blood. He rocked Miocic with a 

big right hand as Miocic pushed forward, then went for a guillotine 


Miocic escaped, but after the fight, Overeem, a former Strikeforce 

champion, claimed Miocic tapped.

"I believe when I punched him and he went down," Overeem (41-15, 1 NC) 

said. "I got him in a guillotine choke, he tapped, the ref didn't see it.

In my opnion, he tapped. I think I'm the better fighter. He clearly 


Regardless, the fight continued and both competitors landed heavy 

blows. The end came when Miocic got Overeem to the ground in a 

scramble and began landing big ground-and-pound shots. By the 

time the bout was waved off, Miocic was bouncing Overeem's head 

off the mat with his punches.

"He kicked harder than I thought, he put me on his ass, didn't he?" 

Miocic said after his 13th career finish. "He put me on my ass, he 

kicks hard as f**k."

Overeem had a four-fight win streak snapped with the loss."


I also worked with Father when he worked for VEPCO (Virginia Electric

and Power Company). He dug the three foot deep ditch and as wide as 

the bucket on his backhoe that was required and then from a one large 

and one small wooden rollers wound out the large electric and small 

and black telephone lines from mostly new homes to the telephone pole 

at the street or road. 

I eventually learned myself with Father's help, of course, to run the 

backhoe. I believe at some point in time Father's back became almost 

too painful to operate the backhoe because of the jerking, bouncing 

movement of the backhoe in its reaction to the bucket digging into

the hard red clay that is typical of that region of Virginia. Picture riding 

a bull at a rodeo and maybe you can see what I mean....

Fall is coming, because the temperature's starting to drop and weather 

forecasts a high of around 61 degrees today with a low one day next week

of 52 degrees. Most house plants planted or potted outside need to be 

taken in to a warmer place before the temperature goes below 50 degrees.

But I know we'll get a second chance at summer when Indian Summer shows 

its face....
