246th post

I do not know if anyone reads "the stories of my life" because I don't have

time to read comments on my web site. I do check my Google email almost

every day, so that would be the best way to contact me. 

In my stories of "THE ROAD TO MY GRANDPARENTS CLINE....", I know that

some of the facts I've forgotten or remembered incorrectly. 

The family members that you could contact about my Grandparents Cline

home place on the hill and back of Burketown is Mother's younger sister next

to her and my Aunt Ruth or Mother's baby brother and my Uncle Lester who 

are both still alive today.

We always ate Sunday dinner in a big long, maybe painted white room running 

from the north to south as you entered the room. There was a garden in the back

that you could see from the room and also the farm fields beyond. I believe the

room was built some time later than the original house because it looked like it

didn't fit in to the original construction. 

If I have counted right, there were about 22 family members attending the 

Sunday dinners, but I'm little vague on where everyone set. My Aunt Esther 

was good at organizing things, so I believe that she helped with the dinner 

and the seating under grandmother's tutelage.

My Grandfather Cline. 

Maybe I haven't told you before, but my Grandfather Caricofe left the 

family early to fend for the themselves financially. I only saw him one time and 

he spoke not a word to me, but to Father who I was with at the time.

Grandfather Cline remained loyal to his family all of his life and I saw him 

many times, but just like Grandfather Caricofe, "he spoke not a word to me."....

UN: More Than A Million Could Flee Mosul Ahead of Siege

"QAYYARAH, Iraq - While Iraqi and Kurdish forces advanced on Mosul, the 

United Nations warned Monday more than a million residents might try to 

get out before the fighting starts - at that ISIS could use them as "human shields."

Anti-obesity Compound Turns 'Bad' Fat to 'Good' Fat

By David Alliot   |   Monday, 17 Oct 2016

"New research suggests that a test chemical added to the diet of mice 

effectively converted bad "white" fat to metabolism-raising good "brown" fat.

Brown fat raises metabolism, which helps reduce weight.

Published in The FASEB Journal, the research shows that when the chemical, 

called beta-LGND2, was added to the diet of a test group of mice they became 

leaner with higher body temperature — indicating higher metabolism.

Researchers at the Department of Medicine and Director of the Center for 

Cancer Drug Discovery at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center 

used three groups of mice to test their theory. One group, the control group, 

was fed a normal diet. The two other groups were fed a high-fat diet to make

them obese. Out of the two groups, one had the test component beta-LGND2 

added to its diet, which is activated by estrogen receptors.

That group exhibited weight-loss and higher metabolism characteristics.

Thoru Pederson, editor-in-chief of The FASEB Journal, said, "The notion that 

the fat in our bodies comes in two physiological forms has long been known, 

but here we have the intriguing prospect of a beneficial pharmacological

"There was no increase this year. Next year's benefit hike will be small 

because inflation is low, driven in part by lower fuel prices. The COLA 

affects more than 70 million people — about one in five Americans. 

The federal government is scheduled to announce the cost-of-living 

adjustment, or COLA, Tuesday morning...."


I already know what I'll get. $3.

To whom it may concern: (in the US government)

Keep the $3. You'll need it to run your fat and bloated government.


IRAQ MOSUL - Villagers rebel against IS occupiers as battle to liberate Mosul 


Source country efe Tuesday, October 18, 2016 10:56:00 AM CEST

"The Iraqi Army cleared the Islamic State from two towns overnight during 

their operation to liberate Iraq's second largest city Mosul from the jihadist 

group which continued on Tuesday. Inhabitants of al-Hud and al-Lazzagah 

rebelled against the IS and killed nine of their soldiers...."


It has been a long time coming, but vengeance against the Islamic State, is 

finally coming in the form of Kurdish and Iraqi military forces, US lead in the

taking back of the Iraqi city of Mosul.

I told you before that I believe in vengeance here on earth and not in Heaven.

Now, I'm satisfied with that.

Clinton Shifts Message as She Eyes Congressional Takeover

"Should Democrats use Donald Trump against other Republicans or use other 

Republicans against Trump? That question is dividing Democrats this year, as 

Hillary Clinton's campaign has sought to drive a wedge between Trump as the

GOP standard bearer."

Taunting Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton Pushes Into Red States


"Hillary Clinton’s campaign is planning its most ambitious push yet into 

traditionally right-leaning states, a new offensive aimed at extending 

her growing advantage over Donald J. Trump while bolstering down-ballot 

Democrats in what party leaders increasingly view as a possible wave 


Signaling extraordinary confidence in Mrs. Clinton’s electoral position 

and a new determination to deliver a punishing message to Mr. Trump 

and Republicans about his racially tinged campaign, her aides said Monday 

that she would aggressively compete in Arizona, a state with a growing 

Hispanic population that has been ground zero for the country’s heated 

debate over immigration."

figures that are lower."

US election poll tracker: Who is ahead - Clinton or Trump?

Election day 8 November 2016

"updated 18 October 2016                   Hillary Clinton 51%      Donald Trump 41% 

updated 17 October 2016                    Hillary Clinton 49%      Donald Trump 41%

updated 16 October 2016                    Hillary Clinton 49%      Donald Trump 40% 

updated 15 October 2016                    Hillary Clinton 49%      Donald Trump 40% 

          30 September 2016                    Hillary Clinton 48%      Donald Trump 46%"


It is about a month now until election day and Hillary Clinton continues to move 

upward in the polls.

As seen from above, Clinton lead by only 2 points on 30 September, but now, 

in just about 18 days has increased her lead to 10. 

The media, who are making huge profits covering this election, are making 

much to do about Trump's tapes and talk of rigged elections. They also 

continue to talk about the Clinton emails and her election team is continually

faced with how to deal with that. 

And also I'm kind of confused. Trump wants to help start businesses so that 

people can work for a living. Clinton wants to give money to people who 

don't want to work for a business. So, what's right, working your arse off or 

sitting on your arse? Beats me!

I do not know if there has every been an election that seems like a circus.

Why don't they call on Barnum and Bailey, and with a stage in center ring, 

let them fight it out. 

Just my opinion, of course.

We Americans have no commission from God to police the world.

I pity the man who wants a coat so cheap that the man or woman who produces 

the cloth will starve in the process.

Great lives never go out; they go on.


I planted about half the flower bulbs yesterday and I'm sure, now, that I can

plant the rest before the next frost. Even though it's going to be in the low 80's

again today, I have other things I have to do today. 

A cold front following a rain pattern will be coming in from the northwest and 

that will bring the temperatures down to low 50's, but I certainly can work in
