We have a visitor to the house quite often. I've mentioned him before. His name 

is Lonnie and use to live here for a time, sleeping in the hooch in the garage and

then in the house when it got too cold. I was in Las Vegas at this time and when I

returned, I slept in the hooch until Lonnie found a place of his own. I then moved

into the house where I sleep and now stand-up typing my story of the day. Just

like Bill, Lonnie has no family to speak of and has had more bad luck that some

people have had in a life time of living. He makes his living by purchasing almost

new tires from car dealers, who don't want worn tires on used cars they sell, and 

then selling them to car repair shops who place them on cars they repair to 

customers who don't care if they have less tread than new ones.

Well, yesterday Lonnie hitched-hiked to house and said the motor in his truck 

had blown up. Seems like bad luck has followed him all his life. 

He is a kind and gentle young man and I don't believe he deserves this. He also

has a girlfriend who has lung cancer and he also had cancer in the past. What 

are we to do? Pray? That could be one thing we could do. But some only rely

on prayer and don't do anything else expecting God to do their wishes. These 

people are no earthly good. 

So I'll talk to Lonnie again if comes over today and between him and I will try to

come up with a plan of action like we did last night. Please wish him good luck 

for a change.

I received an email message from after I had posted my 

story of the day last evening and just before I posted that story at a little before

6:00 PM (Atlantic EDT time).

Hello Forrest!

This is a copy of the message you wrote when you registered postcard 

LT-541027 from __________ , in Lithuania. Use it for archiving/tracking purposes.

You wrote:

“Thank you for the wonderful postcard. 

I like it very much. I will mention you (not your name) and your country in my 

story of tomorrow (January 4} on my web site:, 

It will be posted just before 6:00 PM Atlantic Time period. 

Thanks again, 



From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Country in Europe

"Lithuania is a country and the southernmost of Europe’s Baltic states, a former 

Soviet bloc nation bordering Poland, Latvia and Belarus. Its capital, Vilnius, 

near the Belarus border, is known for its medieval Old Town. It also has Gothic, 

Renaissance and baroque architecture, and 18th-century cathedral built on a 

pagan temple site. Hilltop Gediminas' Tower, a symbol of the city and the 

nation, offers sweeping views.

Capital: Vilnius

Population: 2.956 million (2013) World Bank

President: Dalia GrybauskaitÄ—

Currency: Euro

Official language: Lithuanian."

We had visitors to the house yesterday and one young man was of Lithuanian-

German decent. If he is any indication of the Lithuanian people, the people of 

that country are kind, respectful, peaceful and friendly. 


I don't know why I'm typing this opinion under WORLD, but I just thought about it 

and it needs to be said. May it's because racism occurs in every country in the


The Oxford Dictionary definition of racism is "prejudice, discrimination, or 

antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that

ones' own race is superior.

 The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or 

qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or 

superior to another race or races."

There are no inferior or superior races. God made everyone in his own image.

The only difference in people is their behavior and we cannot fault God for that.


"A modern convenience hair brush, a Lazy Boy chair, drive-throughs, elevators, etc.

*Company L'Oreal has developed a hairbrush that contains a microphone, 

gyroscope and accelerometer among other sensors. It also vibrates if you brush 

too hard. The brush sells for about $200. The microphone records the sound of 

breaking hair and the other software (gyroscope and accelerometer among other 

sensors) are used to build up a profile of the way the owner looks after their hair.

The brush then shares the data via wi-fi or Bluetooth to an app.

The software uses the information to assess hair quality and monitor the effects of 

different routines - as well as recommending products.


I take care of my own long hair. I don't need a so-called modern convenience to 

mess with my hair. Before long, all you'll have to do is sit and have those tech

inventions groom you and wipe your butt, too.

*Trump continues to not believe and dismisses Russian hacking claims.

*The President-elect may choose Jay Clayton to head Securities and Exchange 

Commission. He has been a lawyer for banks and Wall Street.

*One of Trump's earliest actions after January 20 is to fill the Supreme Court 

vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. But a white, male 

conservative would not change the court since Scalia was the latter and it

would be harder for Trump's nomination to be confirmed. He still has yet, if

remember correctly, to nominate a Hispanic and this may be that opportunity 

for Trump.

*The President-elect called the dictator of North Korea a "a bad dude", but said

he would be willing to talk with the dictator "over a burger" to persuade him to 

quit his nuclear ambitions. China, North Korea's only ally, would also be an 

important participant in such a meeting.

*Incoming senate minority leader, Chuck Schumer, said that Trump said that he

liked him better than Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, but said that he is taking 

that flatter from Trump "with a grain of salt."

I went outside (7:54 AM 1/4/2017 EDT) to check the weather gauge and the wind 

by looking at the American flag on the northeast corner border pole. The 

temperature is 33°, the humidity is 78%, the wind is blowing in from the west 

at about 15 mph. There has been rain which came during the night or early


My other way of checking the high and low temperatures of the day is from the 

security box just inside the back door. It displays a high of 28° and a low of 14°

and compares closely to the Smithville, Ohio forecast from above.

And I'm hungry again, so I'll have a Orleans sardine sandwich, so once again, 

I'm failing to start the intermittent fasting I've been talking about.

No, I've changed my mind. I'm going to have an Alaskan wild caught, bone in 

salmon sandwich and a spoonful of oil smoked mussels. 

Went outside again (3:00 PM 1/4/2017 EDT) to check the weather gauge. The 

temperature is 28°, the humidity is 54% and there's is cold wind blowing in 

from the west at about 15 mph. It's getting a lot colder outside.
