"Father then slide the big car into a stop at the end of Burketown Road...."

As we looked across the road at the Burketown Store we saw a man setting on 

the porch eating salmon out of a can, but that might have been earlier on

and he may be dead by now and maybe that was something that Mother just

told me about.

Father quick looked both ways, spun the tires throwing gravel and turned 

left on to US Route 11. He gunned the engine, crossed over the Naked Creek 

Bridge as we left behind the Burketown Store. He drove up an incline while 

passing a road to the right that lead to Weyers Cave. At the top of the hill we

quick looked to the left and could see our Grandparent's Cline house that 

we had just left. Father drove to the bottom and passed the turkey to the right

that I told you about. He drove up another incline again and just as he 

started driving down the other side, my Father turned the ignition key off....

Thailand presses Google over online royal insults

22 October 2016

Thailand is mourning the death of King Bhumibol - who is protected from 

insult by law.

"Google has agreed to co-operate with the removal of online content insulting 

Thailand's monarchy, the country's deputy prime minister says.

Prajin Juntong said he had met Google representatives to complain about 

material found using the search engine and on YouTube, a Google subsidiary.

Google said it was following its existing policies on content removal.

Thais, who have the some of strictest lese majeste laws in the world, are 

mourning King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Mr Juntong said more than 100 pieces of content insulting to the monarchy 

have been found on Google services since he died on 13 October...."

Here Are the Bizarre Reasons the FDA Refuses to Say Marijuana Is Medicine

It’s far less of a threat to public health than plenty of legal, easily obtained 


By Kylie Cheung / The Frisky October 21, 2016

"With a handful of states slated to vote on either medical or full marijuana 

legalization this November, the pressure is on for the federal government 

to perhaps reassess its dated policies on the drug. After all, there’s no 

shortage of evidence the legal and cultural stigmas attached to the drug 

for generations were a purposeful political attack on communities of color. 

Science has found an abundance of benefits on the drug’s part, namely for 

certain bodily and mental health conditions, but newly released documents 

indicate that the FDA has its own bizarre reasons for marijuana regulations.

Marijuana is currently classified as a Schedule I drug next to the likes of 

heroin, and earlier this year the DEA rejected petitions to reschedule the 

drug. Despite minimal scientific evidence of its alleged addictive properties 

and the fact that it is literally nowhere near the societal and public health 

hazards of alcohol and tobacco, the FDA responded to the petitions 

claiming marijuana has “no currently accepted medical use” and a 

“high potential for abuse.” Rescheduling the drug would require intensive 

renewed research that it’s entirely likely the DEA is simply looking for an 

excuse to avoid.

The DEA consulted the FDA for findings that it could cite to deny petitions 

to reschedule the drug, and after repeatedly denying media requests for 

documents shared by the FDA, the FDA finally shared the documents 

forwarded to the DEA back in 2015 with Vice News."


Just heard from Bill that the Chicago Cubs baseball team won the National

League pennant. 

The Cleveland Indians baseball team who have already won the American

pennant will play the Cubs in the World Series.

The polls have remained steady and the same for the last week or so, but the

so called battle ground states are what's important now.

Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Pennsylvania mirror the

above poll (47% to 43%) with only a point or two each way and both are in a

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those 

who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.

It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try 

another. But above all, try something.


Bill watching TV with me listening (6:18 AM 10/23/2016).

I heard from the weather forecasters that we may have more rain tomorrow

afternoon. Maybe the water table will come up to normal after that. Seems 

like it has been raining for a very long time.

It did clear up yesterday afternoon with a little bit of sun so I went out to check

the flower beds to pull any weeds that grew after the rains. I found that I could

pull almost all of the weeds out by the root because of the rains.

I did see something rather unusual. Some new growth yellow dandelions mixed

in with old growth and round white-headed dandelions that were about to 

spread their seed for next year's crop.

I do not know the reason for this. Let's just blame it on Climate Change.
