OUR HOUSE ON THOMPSON STREET ....

CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY....

I remember working at "Boots" Heatwole's Texaco service station in Dayton. 

It was located just about 4 buildings down from what was Roth's Grocery going 

north on main street and to the left. Today the grocery, although in the same 

place, is run by an Asian Indian couple. The service station is now a residence, 

but there is another service station now on the corner of main street and the 

street that runs west past Dayton Elementary School. The station is on the 

northwest corner, and a cannon and a plaque just a few steps southeast of the 

station and on the same corner, commemorate a Civil War soldier who convinced

his commander not to burn the town of Dayton.

I probably had to be 16 (1958) to work and maybe needed a permit. It was a full

service gas station, I pumped gas,washed windshields and checked under

the hood if the customer said "yes" after I said "would you like me to check the 

oil, sir or mam." And customers always paid by check or cash. I believe I 

worked mostly Saturdays during the school year, but maybe full time during the 

Summer when school was out. I know one thing, I worked my butt off especially 

on Saturdays. Customers, some of them regulars, came to the station to get their 

cars washed or washed and waxed. 

And for all that work I did for "Boots" he paid to me....

UNITED STATES

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been in the news a lot during the last month

or so. The Sioux Tribe along with others who are loyal to their cause are 

protesting the nearness to their reservation of a proposed $3.7 billion Dakota

Access pipeline. The proposed pipeline comes within a half-mile of the Sioux 

reservation and has drawn people from all over the world to join their protests.


The latest: The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers in a statement said they 

would not allow the pipeline to run under a dammed section of the Missouri

River. An alternate route will need to be found and, thus, the Sioux Tribe have 

won a major victory for now. 

The chief executive of Energy Transfer Partners has said the company is not 

willing to reroute the pipeline whose goal is to transport around 550,000 barrels

of oil a day from the oil fields of western North Dakota to a terminal in Illinois.

We'll see what happens.

HEALTH

Baby Boomers are those born between 1945 and 1965. This does not include me

because I was born in 1942.

The article says 1 in 30 of these Baby Boomers has Hepatitis C and don't even

know it. Five facts:

1.  75% of the people in the US who have Hepatitis C are Baby Boomers and most

don't even know they have it.

2.   Hepatitis C is a virus that infects the liver. If not treated, Hepatitis C can 

lead to liver damage and liver cancer.

3.  More Americans die each year from Hepatitis C than from HIV.

4.  The CDC (Center for Disease Control) recommends that all Baby Boomers 

get tested for Hepatitis C.

5.  If you have Hepatitis C it can be cured. 

Factors that increase your risk for Hepatitis C:

1.  Baby Boomers born between 1945 to 1965.

2.  Received blood transfusions, organ transplant or kidney dialysis 

before 1992.

3.  Tattoos or body piercings with unsterilized instruments. 

4.  Sharing needles or straws for recreational drug use (even just one time).

5.  Accidental needle sticks (most common in healthcare professionals).

6.  Vietnam-era veteran.

7.  Being born to a mother with Hepatitis C.

They go on to say it is a hidden virus, not talked about much and you may have

never heard of it. It is not tested in routine blood tests. 

I am one of those who is older that a Baby Boomer and one of the 25% who may

have this so-called hidden virus. I will ask my doctor, Dr. Kwok, for the test for

Hepatitis C on my next visit. 

I would advise you to do the same.


THE US PRESIDENT ELECT 

*Donald Trump met in New York with Al Gore and guess what they talked about?

How to lie and cheat (he says he invented the internet) to win the Nobel Prize?

No. Global Warming of all things.

*Trump Taps Ben Carson as Housing Secretary

*I don't know what the odds are in Las Vegas for the President-elects choices 

for Secretary of State, but I'll give you mine.

Huntsman     2-1

Petraeus        3-1

Corker           5-1

Romney       10-1

Giuliani       15-1

Bolton          20-1

Gore      no chance in hell - scratched 

And they're off!

I went out to the garage (1:45 AM 12/5/2016 EDT) to make my 1st pot of coffee.

Temperature is the same as it has always been for the last week or so. 40°. And 

with the wind at a brisk pace from the south, it feels near freezing. 32°. The 

humidity is 72% and with the dew point calculator at http://www.dpcalc.org/,

the dew point reading is 32%.


"Fishy, fishy in the brook (stream), Father caught him with a hook, Mother fried 

him in a pan and I ate him like a man." I remember Mother reading this to us,

but I don't know if I got it right or not? And the fish were not sardines either, I

believe they only live in salt water.


Just made (2:51 AM 12/5/2016 EDT) my special of the house breakfast sandwich

of the day. I am making it in the house too. With freezing temperatures coming,

I do not want the canned fish to be damaged by the cold. I had my favorite again.

King Oscar with maybe 14 sardines in this can today when yesterday there were

more. On the package it says 12 to 22 fish. I always pull the tab back a bit and 

tip the can to my mouth to drink that liquid of the gods (extra virgin olive oil) 

from the can.
