WORLD

*The agreement between opposing factions in the Syrian war has finally 

allowed refugees on buses and other vehicles to escape from Aleppo and 

nearby villages from rebel held areas to the western part of Aleppo. A total 

of over 16,000 civilians, including the wounded, have been evacuated so far.

The recapture of Aleppo from rebel forces by Assad's loyalist's is his greatest

victory so far, but part of Aleppo still remains in rebel hands, as well as other

parts of Syria.

A vote in the security council of the United Nations will be held to allow UN 

staff to monitor the remaining evacuations. It is a result of a compromise between

Russia and France.

The war in Syria is being fought between Assad's military and backed by Russia,

Iran and the Shiite Muslims and the rebels backed by Turkey, the U.S., and the 

Sunni kingdoms in the middle east.


THE LATEST

The Russian Ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was at first reported seriously 

wounded, but later died from a shot to the back by a Turkish policeman. 

'Don't Forget Aleppo' the shooter shouted out as his shots injured others at the 

scene. The gunman was later shot and killed by the Turkish security forces.

This assassination adds to the complications of the war in Syria that was 

described in some detail above.

calk, caulk, chalk, chock, clock, cock, crock, doc, dock, floc, flock, frock, gawk,

hawk, hoc, hock, jock, knock, lock, locke, mach, mock, pock, rock, schlock,

And you know I can stand which don't rhyme with any of the above. I standing

dresser and at the same time I'm exercising my arms and legs. 


SPORTS 

The San Francisco 49'ers professional football team lost to the Atlanta 

Falcons, 41-13 to remain next to last in the NFL (National Football League) 

at 1 win, 13 losses just ahead of the Cleveland Browns whose perfect record 

is 0 wins and 14 losses. There are 2 games left to play this season, let's see if

the mighty Browns maintain their perfect record at 0 wins and 16 losses for

the season.

"I have often wondered why God created creatures like the fly and mosquito. 

Maybe it's to remind us of the plagues in Egypt that could happen today

LITTLE KNOWN FACTS

From mentalfloss.com

* "Bear Bryant (famous college football coach at Alabama) was once asked to 

contribute $10 to help pay for a sportswriter's funeral. According to legend, 

he said, "Here's a twenty, bury two.""  

*"Kool-Aid was originally marketed as "Fruit Smack.""  

* "Only female mosquitoes will bite you."

*"In 1961, Martha Stewart was selected as one of Glamour magazine;s "Ten Best-

Dressed College Girls.""

And Martha Stewart went from a best dressed college girl to dressed in the

one color orange of a prison uniform. Quite a reversal of fortunes I would say.


MY TAKE ON MOSQUITOES

I know a lot about mosquitoes and I knew that only female mosquitoes bite you.  

I've been plagued all my life with mosquito bites. The bite results in a welt, 

itches and lasts for several days. Mosquitoes prefer dark places and venture 

no further distance than 300 feet from their home. They will not leave their nest

in wind, rain or bright sunlight. I just called the mosquitoes' home a nest and 

that's not the right term. I looked on the internet and the results were that they

live in dirt. But I know that's not completely true either. It has to be 

wet/swampy dirt. From what I've just typed, I hope you've learned a little bit

about that parasite that's called a mosquito.

But another thing that I don't understand, if winter weather kills the mosquito,

like the fly, how do they reappear in Spring? Maybe they're like the 

perennials that I planted in the flower beds this past Spring, Summer and Fall, 

they just have to hibernate for a while before waking to a bright new season?

POLITICS

*President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Virtu Financial founder Vincent Viola 

to be his Secretary of the Army citing his proven record of leadership.

*New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo booked 200 hotel rooms in Washington, D.C. for

Hillary Clinton's inauguration as President. 

Talking about putting the "cart before the horse" pretty well sums that up.

WEATHER

Weather for Smithville, Ohio

Just went outside (7:27 AM 12/19/2016 EDT) to take the trash containers to the 

front near the road for Waste Management to pick up and to take an outgoing 

letter to the mailbox. The temperature was 9°, humidity 70% and the wind is 

almost completely silent blowing at maybe 2 mph.  Using the online calculators at 

http://www.dpcalc.org and http://www.onlineconversion.com., I get a wind 

chill of 5.69° and a dew point of 1%.

Haven't eaten so far this morning (9:44 AM 12/19/2016 EDT), so I think I'll have

Orleans sardine sandwich. That should "fit the bill" so to speak. And I just 

remembered that I haven't taken my morning pills. If you're taking that   

Miracle pill of the Century, turmeric curcumin, that I recommended, make 

sure you continue to do so. I believe, at least for right now, we have something 

like the "fountain of youth" in an orange capsule.

Went out to the garage (11:07 AM 12/19/2016 EDT) to get my last loaf of whole

wheat bread from the refrigerator. The temperature is now 28° and the 

humidity is 78% and the wind is refusing to blow. Quite an upturn from earlier 

this morning.
