QUOTE (S) FOR THIS POST

"As a kid, when you're getting close to home you start planning what to do if it's

up to you."

Forrest Caricofe


BACK TO OUR HOUSE ON OTTOBINE ROAD....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

Father driving. Mother reading road signs while holding baby, Jerry. 1954.

Driving by the cemetery on the right, Father followed Herring's Hill to the 

top and down and to the left into a dip and then slightly up and mostly

straight on the two-lane road that is State Route 42. A large brick house on the

left was of that time and maybe a pond just to its south. 

Mostly farmer's field on the left and the right and owned by the Mennonites 

who were of the Old Order type. (Old Order meaning not using modern 

conveniences such as electricity, gas powered vehicles, relying on horse and 

buggy for going from one place to another and horses for pulling of farm 

implements).

Related to that to some extent is what I saw at a grocery store yesterday in 

Orrville, Ohio just about 3.7 miles from the house. I saw a horse and buggy 

hitched up to a hitching post at the store. Most of the Amish live in Holmes 

county at least 10 miles to the south of here and there are other grocery stores 

much closer in Kidron and Apple Creek. Me being overly friendly like I told

you before, I would have ask them, but they where in the store. 

And the horse was switching his/her tail. The flies are dead. It's too cold. Must

be a genetic thing.

And by the way, Orrville, Ohio is the home of the J. M. Smucker Company.

"With a name like Smucker's, it has to be good."....

CHILD DISCIPLINE

I have decided to talk on a more variety of subjects and just the not the same old 

thing day in and day out. I know you're bored by that and I am too. Just imagine you

and I sitting across the table from each other having a fish sandwich, the fish taken

from a can. You know I like fish, don't you? So, you pretend your are only listening

and I'm doing all the talking. And you know I've got a big mouth, too. 

Today I'd like to talk about child discipline. I'm a little old for that, but I have a 

fairly good memory of disciplining my own children and me being disciplined as 

a kid by my parents:

1. Set the example and that means a good example, not a bad example. One of the 

the main components of military leadership is to set the example for the soldiers

that you are responsible for. My Father and Mother set a good example for me and 

I believe I set a good example for my two sons. The both of us parents set the 

example in the southern way of politeness and there was no waiver for that: 

REFER TO THE QUOTE ABOVE. 

But I guess I ain't really never asked if I set a good example and maybe their 

answer might be no.

2. Some so-called child experts say to reward good behavior. NO. As long as the

kids are behaving themselves why give them money or gifts for something you 

expect them to do anyway. But you can reward bad behavior: 

REFER TO THE QUOTE ABOVE. 

3. The child experts say to set rules. Sure, I agree with that. But if your kids don't

obey the rules, what do you do?

REFER TO THE QUOTE ABOVE. 

4. The experts say to settle arguments between your children or you and your 

children. Let the children settle their own arguments. They are going to have to do

that when they grow up anyway. As far as an argument between you and your child 

you know what I'm going to say, don't you? Yes, you're right:

REFER TO THE QUOTE ABOVE. 

Well, that's about all I can think of right now. I hoped you learned something and to

tell you the truth I don't know if I did or not. Most all of the situations with kids 

seemed to be resolved with only one solution.

HEALTH

I spent two weeks in a crazy part of a hospital once. They said I was crazy as hell

when I went in and after many psychiatric evaluations and experimental drugs, I

was released more "crazy as hell" because of all the other patients, like me, that I

had to deal with who were also "crazy as hell."

VENGEANCE

I've told you that I believe in vengeance here on earth. 

Example: If a man in the men's restroom in Walmart farts out loud and doesn't say,

excuse me, you fart out loud louder.

"The say that because of first amendment rights, the lobbyists and the 

companies they represent are allowed special favors from our elected officials,

but in reality there all just a bunch of crooks."

"crooks" (and any subsequent words) was ignored because we limit queries 

to 32 words. 

As much as I have used your search services, it looks like you could give me a 

break, Google. Just one more word?

THE US PRESIDENT ELECT 

I have some knowledge of lobbying, but not being a political insider, I know less

than most.

1. Because of first amendment rights (free speech), lobbyists (mostly lawyers) are 

allowed to influence congress, federal agencies and others for special favors for

the companies they represent.

A recent estimate says there maybe as many as 100,000 lobbyists and that their

request for special favors brings in $9,000,000,000 each year.

If you take the population of the US at a rounded figure of 319 million (2014) that

would pay ($4.30) for a decent meal at McDonald's for every man, woman and child.

If you took the world population at around 7 billion (2011),  every woman, man 

and child would get almost 7 cents and the child street beggars of poorer nations 

would think that it was a fortune.


Note: Cortana is on this computer. I had to ask her if the computer had a calculator.

Well, thankfully, it does. Sometimes Cortana doesn't cooperate like I want her to. 

It probably has to do with her time of the month if you know what I mean.


2. The president elect has promised to "drain the swamp" meaning, at least to

me that he plans to get rid of the present lobbyists (foreign and domestic) and 

maybe replace them with less of the new? His plan is that all former lobbyists

must wait 5 years before being to register as a lobbyist again and this same 

policy will apply to all officials leaving the government for whatever reason.


MY OPINION

Why in the @#$% don't he get rid of the lobbyists altogether. They're just taking

from you and me.


*Bill watching TV and me listening (4:44 AM 11/23/2016 EDT). Stock market has 

gone crazy since Donald Trump's election. All major indexes have moved rapidly 

upward during the last few days.

Temperatures in their 20's (when I checked this moring it was about 28° with

a guesstimated ( is this a word?) wind chill of  24°).

I went out to the garage (3:31 AM 11/23/2016 EDT) this morning for what I call the 

"nectar of the Gods." Coffee. If it weren't for coffee, I wouldn't have the adrenaline 

and energy I do. I tried other caffeine drinks like Mountain Dew, but only once.

They say that "white men can't jump," but I jumped all over the place that day.

Just for your information they say that people, mostly kids, in the mountain areas

of Appalachia and the Rocky Mountains have "Mountain Dew Mouth" meaning 

their teeth are being destroyed by that soda that is made by Pepsi. Of course it 

don't effect me none because I have falsified teeth. 

I got a lot done in the yard yesterday. I brought up the last load of good dirt from

the back southwest corner flower bed and dumped and leveled it out on the slope

of the yard near the back deck. I threw the last bag of black mulch on the same 

back corner bed where I had dug and loaded everything that didn't belong to 

nature on on the cart and brought it up and placed those items in to the garage. 

Those "items" were watering cans (4), flower pot, 13-13-13 fertilizer which I used

later, safflower seed in a red Folger's coffee container (I bought this to feed the 

birds, but they ate not one seed. I don't know what happened. If I remember it,

I'll googled it), gallon and smaller plastic containers filled with water for drinking, 

and other items that I don't remember.

Out to the garage (5:04 AM 11/23/2016 EDT) again for my 2nd pot of coffee and 

a delightful oyster sandwich. Same temperature, same wind chill as stated in 

"*Bill watching TV and me listening (4:44 AM 11/23/2016 EDT)" above under 

MY OPINION.
