"In the old days, door-to-door salesmen were a delight for the resident. They

brought up-to-date news and things that you needed. In today's world door-to

Looks like Google is ignoring me a lot today.


WORLD

*I've been putting off mailing postcards to people around the world as a

member of postcrossing.com. So, today or tomorrow, I'll go to the web site

and the site will generate about 5 different addresses for me and I'll choose 5

postcards, write in a message and place them in an envelope with an

international stamp and mail them. I, also, scan the postcards so I can upload

the postcards to the postcrossing web site and to Facebook.

As you'll read later in this story of today that Bill and I went to Ashland, Ohio

and we stopped at a service station just to see if they had some postcards. They

did have postcards to my surprise. Businesses don't usually sell postcards

anymore, but I found 7 different ones at 39 cents apiece. I remembered

recently that there might be some postcards for sale at the bookstore and at

City News in downtown Wooster. As a last resort, I can ordered postcards

online like I've done before, but they are much more expensive.

"If sugar is the number one killer (17,000,000 a year) and cigarettes cause less

than 1/3rd (5,000,000) of that, why do the medical professionals complain of

cigarettes and not of sugar?"

Google. Are you getting lazy? You searched only 23 sources?


HEALTH

*I am going to have to fill my pill boxes today. This is always a pain in the arse

to me. I have a box for morning prescription medications, a box for morning

supplements which are mostly for my prostrate and a pill box for the evening

which only contains Depakote and Saraquill which you know I call Drop-a-coat

and Sara Palin. In this evening pill box I'm going to include that "Miracle Pill of

the Century", turmeric curcumin, that I typed about several days ago instead of

working out of a separate bottle.

And I've made up my mind to stop eating sugar except for the natural sugar I

get from fruits that I eat from my mini-refrigerator. If I could cut out sugar and

loose some weight, I believe that I could stop taking some of the prescription

medications I'm taking.

I know what you're thinking. No, I'm not going to tell you how much I weigh,

don't even ask. But I will give you a slight hint. It's a 3 digit number. You can

now pick between 100 and 999.

*2.8 million people worldwide die each for being overweight or obese.

So, I'm overweight and I smoke. So now, if I die before the statistics change

I'll be one of the 7.8 million (5,000,00 from smoking from yesterday's story and

2,800,000 from above) to die worldwide.

*I told you all before that Bill, whose family abandoned him maybe 30 years

and he has lived with us since then. He has COPD and we're going to DASCO

in Ashland, Ohio to exchange his empty bottles of oxygen for full ones. We

should be leaving shortly after I take the empty bottles to his truck (9:34 AM

12/22/2016 EDT).

Just arrived back at the house (12:12 PM 12/22/2016 EDT). The drive to and from

Ashland reminds me of Mother and Aunt Bea. There are plenty of farmlands,

old farmhouses, and other houses that are two-story, made of brick or just clap-

board with attics above that Mother always enjoyed. Aunt Bea liked barns that

were kept up in repair and was disheartened when barns were falling in on

themselves or just a bank to a barn that was missing. Two small towns named

Rowsburg and New Pittsburg remind me of Mount Sidney in Virginia except

no post offices or gas stations between them. On this U.S. Route 250 there

were plenty of road signs for Mother to read. Deer crossings, watch out for

horse and buggy's, steep incline, curves to the right or left or just before going

over hill a warning sign of a possible school bus stopping.

MY OPINION

*I always have an opinion, but an opinion, like I said before, is not worth much

if there's no one listening or reading. So, I'll just keep on giving my opinion and

because of being alone almost all my life, I'll just keep talking (typing) to

myself.

*(7:15 AM 12/22/2016 EDT). I receive breaking news in the bottom right hand

corner of my computer screen from the Washington Post. Trump's champaign

manager, Kellyanne Conway has been chosen as Counselor to the President.

*(2:20 PM 12/22/2016 EDT) Breaking news again from the Washington Post.

Trump has chosen Sean Spicer as White House press secretary.

*The President-elect said today that he wants to greatly strengthen the U.S's

nuclear capabilities until the rest of the world comes to its senses.

Yesterday was the shortest day of the year. I sure grateful that we're going to

experience more daylight. If had built in sonar (called 'echolocation), like a bat

I wouldn't mind it so much because I could navigate in the dark. The old saying,

"blind as a bat" is dead wrong because they can see almost as well as us

humans, but rely on their hearing (echolocation) to move about.

We'll get a one minute addition to daylight at sunset until around

January 7, 2017 and then we'll tack on a minute of daylight at sunset and sunrise.

That ain't much, but it will be more than we had and I'm sure thankful for that.

I just got back (8:12 AM 12/22/2016 EDT) from taking outgoing letters to the

mailbox. My weather gauge presented a temperature of 33° which is suppose

to be a high for today, the humidity is 73% and the wind is blowing in from the

west at about 5 mph. That's an unusual direction for the wind. It usually blows

in from the south or southeast. Using the online calculators at http://www.

dpcalc.org and http://www.onlineconversion.com., I get a wind chill of 28.25°

and a dew point of 25%.

I getting hungry so I thought about a jumbo squid, chopped clams or a chub

mackerel sandwich, but the squid is too tough for me without my false teeth

installed, the clams are wrapped in paper in the can and the mackerel was

nasty tasting the last time I tried it, so I'm just going to have my old faithful,

Orleans sardines.

I just checked the weather gauge again and it seems that it might be broken,

maybe because of the ice which still has not entirely melted.

I just saw a news item that said the temperatures at the North Pole may be

above freezing and more melting than normal would occur. It ain't melting

much here yet. Maybe I out to drive 62 hours and 3,791.0 miles to the North

Pole so I can warm up? I've driven the 29 hours and 2,076.3 miles to Las Vegas

so I ought to be able to do that.
