STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

I cooked for the house last evening. I fried turkey Spam on both sides light

browned and also fried scrambled eggs (18) and both were fried in olive oil. I

made country chicken white gravy in the microwave and wheat toast crumbled

to make a bed for the gravy. Everyone said that it was really good.

I cooked for Mother mostly on and off for 12 years spending time with at first,

then taking care of her later on. I always helped her to prepare her breakfast

at first but later on I prepared it all.

She always wanted cereal with regular milk but later on she became allergic to

the milk and I started buying almond or soy milk. She could always take her

morning pills with orange juice because her baby brother, my Uncle Lester,

drank it so she thought orange juice was good for her too. At breakfast we

shared a banana cut in but not exactly and she always wanted me to have the

bigger half. My breakfast was far different placed in plastic containers and

stored in the refrigerator. Salmon, green beans, yogurt, beets, fruit cocktail,

avocado, spinach, other varieties of beans and others depending what I ran out

of last and the bigger half of the banana Mother made me take. All these food

items mentioned above were from cans except the avocado and banana the

yogurt being in its own container and me eating just one spoonful of everything.

We talked some over the dining table in the dinning room, Mother setting on

the north side of the table and me on the south side about 4 feet apart.

Mother had trouble hearing since childhood but I don't remember her every

saying "what did you say?" maybe because I talked loud enough or she was

reading my lips.

I've gotten off the tracks here a little, I wanted to talk about cooking. My Mother

was use to having 3 meals a day, seven days a week at 8:00 AM, 12 noon and

5 PM so later on when she couldn't cook for herself I had to cook 21 meals total

unless my brother, Roland, my sister, Nancy, or I took Mother out to eat and

unless Meals on Wheels delivered 5 meals a week intended for lunch.

Sometimes Nancy would give me a day or an extended break and cook and

care for Mother. I'm allergic to beef or pork (tetracycline) so I had to make on

many occasions another meat for me while Mother ate the beef or pork I fixed

for her. If you consider only the meat part of the meal, I might have fixed at

most 30 meals a week instead of 21. I've always believed in planning so usually

I would have meals planned at least one day in advance depending partially

on what was in the refrigerator.

I learned to cook a lot during the 12 years on and off when I stayed with Mother.

Nothing fancy just basic cooking and I used the microwave a lot. I learned to

make stir-fry on the stove in a skillet, boil chicken breasts with water in a skillet

and later semi-fried with olive oil at the end, boil cauliflower, turnips, cabbage,

and heat sauerkraut in a pan I bought at the annual Brethren auction held at the

Rockingham County fairgrounds. She, like me, learned to like almost every

food because she had lived through the Great Depression and didn't throw

nothing away and learned to eat every food item.

As Mother came close to dying being in a hospital bed in the recreation room

and in Hospice us kids decided to share the duties of taking care of our dear

Mother. We did some cooking for her but baby food was her main staple. We

microwaved eggs and cream of wheat as I remember and maybe some other

cooking I don't remember.

So that's my story pretty much from when I was 25 or so to now and until I die

of me cooking.

HEALTH

*Sources say that taking heartburn pills are responsible for some bacterial

infections.

*Scientists say that a calorie restrictive diet can help humans to live longer

saying it's 'Highly Likely.' Studies have been only conducted on animals up to

now and show a slowing of the aging process so why not humans? The debate

continues.

SPORTS

*Today is the day when the two remaining professional football games are

played to determine who will play each other in the super bowl. I won't change

my predictions of the winners of each game after all like I said yesterday.

Green Bay Packers 28, Atlanta Falcons 24.

*4:33 PM 1/22/2017. I'm watching and listening to the above game on TV, I'm

loosing my arse and the half is over.

Falcons 24, Packers 0.

If the Packers score 28 points in the last half and the Falcon's score 0, I'll have

predicted a perfect score. I ain't got no chance in hell of the Packers doing that.

New England Patriots 35, Pittsburgh Steelers 21.

The advantage for the Falcons and the Patriots is that they are playing on their

home turf (field).

*Mark Gastineau, age 60, and former New York Jet professional football player

says he was diagnosed with dementia, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's

disease about a year ago. He says that playing the hard-hitting game of football

is the cause of these multiple conditions.

POLITICS

*White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer was visibly upset at the media for

downplaying the start of Trump's presidency.  He accused them of "false

reporting" and their actions "shameful."

It looks like to me that the new president and his administration ain't going to

suck up to the media. About time.

*Teresa Shook, retired and in her 60 s, grandmother of 4 and from Hawaii who

lives just outside Honolulu proposed a women's march in November on her

Facebook page. She certainly did not know the impact that it would have on

the women of the world.

The day after President Trump's inauguration, women, some men and children,

marched around the world. An estimated 670 events occurred from Tel Aviv to

Mexico City, from Yellowknife in Canada's Northwest Territories, where the

temperature was 6 degrees below zero, to Berlin, from Miami to Melbourne,

Australia, from London to Los Angeles and from Paris to Park City, Utah just to

name a few.

The march on Washington organizers requested a permit for 200,000 and in the

end an estimated 500,000 attended causing confusion and complications,

security forces concerned for their safety.

Longtime feminist Gloria Steinem, 82, was one of the initial speakers saying

“This is the upside of the downside,” she also said, “This is an outpouring of

democracy like I’ve never seen in my very long life."

Yesterday the media reported that their goal in peaceful protesting was for

human and equal rights and women's solidarity and not anti-Trump, but now

the media reported citing Trump’s divisionist campaign and his treatment of

women, minorities and immigrants, his groping of women and his remarks

about women and sex to be a reason for them to be against the President.

MY OPINION

*B.C. stands for Before Christ. Hillary Clinton's husband was also president and

he not only groped women but had sex with them too. President Trump is

accused only of groping women, not having sex with them too. The way I figure

it Bill Clinton was born before Christ, is still living and he therefore thinks he is

not restricted by the Ten Commandments and believes he can do all the

fornicating he wants to.

*Senator John Mcain of Arizona says he will vote for Rex Tillerson to be

Secretary of State.

*Israel is going ahead with settlements in the disputed area that is the cause of

conflict with Palestine as Trump takes the office of President.

*The new president continues to fight with the media, saying they are trying to

"Delegitimize" him as president and accuses them of being "dishonest" and

fostering "fake news."

*31 million viewers saw Trump sworn in as the 45th President of the United

States.

*President Trump will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May next week.

*Mexico's President Enrique Peña Nieto, age 50, has talked by phone to Trump

and they will meet on January 31.

*Some women in Rust Belt towns and cities said that they would not be welcome

in the women's marches because of their anti-abortion stances and said that the

marchers were mostly liberal and that's all they did was to whine, complain and

protest. They said that President Trump has served only one day and he should

be given more of a chance at governing.

*The weather of yesterday and today almost changes my belief in climate

change.

The high and low and average temperatures for Smithville, Ohio through April

are listed below:

Month Temp. (min) Temp. (max) Temp. (avg)

January   -8°F                      66°F                      31°F

*I would certainly be delighted if we could skip the rest of January and the

months of February and March.

*I went out on the deck to get the weather gauge (6:15 AM 1/22/2017 EST). The

temperature is 49°, the humidity is 80% mainly because it has rained, but not

now, but will continue to do so throughout the day according to the forecast. I'm

having an Orleans sardine sandwich because I'm hungry. Hell, I'm always

hungry, but my weight does not change but a pound or so either way so I guess

I'm expending the same amount of calories I'm taking in.

*I'm still way behind on telling the stories of my life. I drove Carolyn to see Dr.

Kwok on Friday and on the same day I drove both Carolyn and Bill 45 miles

away to get their hair done and cut. And to beat it all I'm going to Walmart in

Wooster and when I get back I'll have another 20 more or less stories to tell.

*8:11 AM 1/22/2017 EST. I just finished taking a shower. The first in 3 or 4 days

but the polyester clothing I wear wicks the cold or heat from your body so I still

don't smell. As fair as my long hair, I use Paul Mitchell shampoo and conditioner

leaving the conditioner in and using the five pronged comb to comb out my

tangles. That's it. Now, I'm doing all of the above except now I apply the

conditioner in the shower and then wash it out. After drying all of my body

except for my long hair, I apply a product called Pureology that claims to make

make it easier to comb out the tangles. I didn't see any difference today, maybe

I need to leave it on longer.

I just found out I need to comb my hair everyday. Sometimes this old man ain't

got no common sense at all.

*12:39 PM 1/22/2017 EST. I'm setting here in McDonald's typing my story of

today.

It took me about 1 hour only to get all the items for the house and me. A record-

setting performance if I must say so myself. The TV (Direct TV) doesn't work

for some reason but the WiFi is working perfectly. Wonderful because I need to

use it. I always order 2 snack wraps, chicken, grilled and ranch and a drink ($1).

Just a few minutes ago I ordered a senior coffee, 69 cents. The keep going up on

their senior coffee prices, but the trouble is my social security checks are

not....much. I believe that the last senior coffee that I bought in Virginia, for an

example, was 49 cents. Maybe that's why Janet Yellen is going to increase the

interest rates? Economically speaking, I less than smart.

*About 50 people more or less smiled at me here or at Walmart mostly

because I smiled first.
