As I told you several times before I'm over friendly, and because of that, health 

care professionals believe that I'm manic and bipolar. Well, I'm not, I'm just over

friendly and I'm mostly alone which enables me to be more over friendly and to 

observe human behavior. If you are attached to someone, you are obligated to

speak to that person which prevents you from greeting everyone. 

I always thank people with a handshake who are veterans with the proper ball 

cap indicating their branch of service or other like WW II, Korean Conflict, 

Vietnam Veteran and the most recent conflicts in the Muslim world. My greeting 

of thanks may extend into a short conversation depending on our shared 

experiences or their patience. I do not wear the ball indicating U.S. Army or 

Korea because I'd rather not publicize myself in this way. 

Did you ever stand in a line and talk to no one?  I don't do that. I talk to everyone

within eyesight. I can converse in a line in Walmart with the cashier, the person 

behind me and the person behind them if the situation presents itself.

I don't touch people unless it looks like they want to touched and can tell when 

they do. Just a handshake, a pat on the shoulder or the pat on the head of a child

if the parents are close and seem willing.

I say Hi to people who are passing even though there not looking and they will 

say Hi back after passing me for some distance.

The say that there are 8 basic emotions: joy, trust, fear, surprise, sadness, 

disgust, anger and anticipation. I, from a lot of years of being alone and 

observing human behavior, can tell the emotion(s) that a person exhibits.

If they display disgust or anger, I normally just say Hi. For the rest I'll just have

to see what comes next after saying Hi to them.

*According to British scientists, the crack in a ice shelf in Antarctica has grown 

by 11 miles and is expected to break off later this winter. This iceberg is the size 

of the state of Delaware. Just recently an iceberg the size of the state of Rhode

Island broke off from its' ice shelf.

*Sri Lanka police are preparing for mass demonstrations from Buddhists monks 

and others protesting the government lease of a seaport to a Chinese venture.

*The FBI says the Fort Lauderdale-Hollwood International Airport suspect who 

they believe is responsible in the shooting deaths of 5 people 'came here 

specifically' to shoot people. The have not ruled out terror.

Note: I'm placing the latter under WORLD because it's happening all over the

*A recent study found that a person's ability to recognize faces grows with age.

*Incidents of flu are less this season, but flu shots are still advised.

*Medical professionals still believe that the Mediterranean diet is best for your

heart health.

*I'm in better health than everyone in this house and they are all younger than me.

I owe it all to eating good, moving, standing up typing and not resorting to anger.


I don't have friends. All my friends are strangers. And you expect me to remember

all their faces. 

I got a flu shot and they keep telling people to get a flu shot. Those people that 

have not got a flu shot ain't going to get one. Lay off.

My diet mirrors the Mediterranean diet for the most part.

(1) Is the world better off without me in it? (2) Do I do enough to help others to 

remain? (3) If I remain, does that take from others because of what I need to 

survive? (4) Does my mental health interfere with the sanity of others? (5) Am I 

just too old for the world to have a place for me? (6) Does me being over 

friendly interrupt the lives of others? (7) Am I now a burden upon society?

I don't know why I'm asking all these questions of myself? 

Well, maybe it's because I'm thinking how to avoid the normal burial. 

I've already purchased burial plots, but I'd like to sell just mine if I could think

of another way. I have thought of another way, but I don't know if I can do it 

in this area (Smithville, Ohio) unless, of course, it is as cold as it is today. 

Some Native American Indian tribes followed the custom of allowing their 

old people or others, who became a burden to their tribe, to walk off into the

wilderness and keep going until their life ended. I do not know what my drop-

date is but I hope that I will have my wits about me so that I can do that very 

same thing.


*At he annual American Film Institute's luncheon on Friday, the nominees for 

the Golden Globe awards got a chance to to for the presentations on Sunday.

Both the Golden Globes and the AFI celebrate outstanding work in film and

television. Unlike the Globes, though, AFI awards require no competition, all 11 

films and 10 television chosen by the American Film Institute are winners.

Well known actors/actresses who attended the luncheon were Sarah Paulson, 

Donald Glover, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. 

All are also nominees for Globe awards on Sunday.

I've seen the First Lady, Michele Obama, speak on TV on several occasions. I

believe from her impassioned and motivating speeches that she should run to

be the first female president of the United States in 2024 and her husband, 

Barack, would be the First Gentleman.

In her last speech to educators at the White House she said "I hope I've made 

you proud."


*After Trump complained about the Obama's administration handling of the

transition, Vice President Joe Biden told Trump to "grow up."

*Senate Republicans are moving ahead with plans to build the border wall 

between the U.S. and Mexico no matter what the cost.

President Vicente Fox of Mexico says his country will not pay for the border wall.

*Trump blames the DNC (Democratic National Committee) for allowing Russia 

to hack into the U.S. election process. Trump also said that Russian hacking had

nothing to do with the outcome of the election.

*American intelligence finds that Russia and President Putin sought to help 

Trump win the election and to cause Hillary Clinton to loose.

believe, and I count 30.


Weather for Smithville, Ohio

Today     PARTLY_CLOUDY       13°   6°

Sun         MOSTLY_SUNNY         16°   9°

Mon        MOSTLY_CLOUDY     30° 25°

Tue          RAIN_AND_SNOW      42° 34°

The Weather Channel - Weather Underground - AccuWeather

The house security box just inside the back door indicates that the high and low

temperatures of the day will be 14° and 7° which is pretty close to the forecast

above. Brrrrr!

The weather gauge I brought into the house yesterday shows a temperature of 71°

and a humidity of 34% (7:43 AM 1/7/2017 EDT). I going to take the gauge outside

and place it on the deck then wait an hour or so and then check the outside 

temperature, humidity and the American flag on the pole for the wind direction

and speed.

The gauge that I just took outside was purchased from Goodwill for 99 cents.

I have another gauge which shows just the temperature. It's 8°. I did look at the 

flag and there is hardly no wind at all, so the wind chill in my estimation would 

be around 7° (7:57 AM 1/7/2017 EDT).

Returned outside (9:07 AM 1/7/2017 EDT) to check the weather. The temperature

is 9°, the humidity is 45% and the wind is blowing in from the west and slightly 

north at maybe 3 mph.

I told you before that my belief is "waste not, want not." We have leftovers in the

upstairs refridgerator. I normally eat all the leftovers. This morning I ate one

chicken thigh and some califlower that was left over from last night. Americans

throw away about 1/3 of their food while other Americans go hungry. Shame on 



Purchase only the food that you need, not want, and give the money that you would 

have spent for food and thrown away to a food bank or when buying food for

both what you will eat and what you will throw away, give the food that you will 

eventually throw away to a food bank. Seems like a good plan to me.
