*I would like to thank everyone who made comments on my quotations, stories

and other things, good or bad. Thank you so much. Forrest.

*Do I desire to travel to other countries in the world? Maybe an English speaking

country and no I have no   appetite, craving, hunger, itch, longing, lust, thirst, 

wish, yearning, yen, want, aspiration, fancy, inclination, impulse or passion 

to visit another. The majority native English speaking countries according to 

the UK (United Kingdom) are:

1.   Antigua and Barbuda.

2.   Australia.

3.   The Bahamas.

4.   Barbados.

5.   Belize.

6.   Canada. "It is very uncommon for Canadians to be capable of speaking only 

the minority official language of their region (French outside of Quebec or 

English in Quebec). Only 1.5% of Canadians are able to speak only the 

minority official language, and of these most (90%) live in the bilingual belt."

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

7.   Dominica.

8.   Grenada.

9.   Guyana.

10. Ireland.

11. Jamaica.

12. New Zealand.

13. St Kitts and Nevis.

14. St Lucia.

15. St Vincent and the Grenadines.

16. Trinidad and Tobago.

17. United Kingdom or Great Britain.

18. United States of America.

Thanks to the University of Sheffield (GB) Great Britain or UK (United Kingdom).

Looks like the United States always ends up in last place in a list when 

considering the English alphabet when it should be, I believe, closer to first. 

Maybe President Trump could sign another executive order renaming the 

United States if his pen hasn't ran out of ink? How about "America the Beautiful." 

That might work. That would put the former United States, not in last place, but

in first place just above, now in second place, Antigua and Barbuda.

I've been to the Republic of South Korea when serving in the "America the 

Beautiful" Army and to Mexico several times that I remember. I have not visited 

our neighbors to the north, and, of course, I would not go to Quebec be

I do not know the French language and if I go, would visit other parts of Canada.

Father and Mother in Heaven to ask them If I did right by them when they

were on earth with me together. 

*I typed yesterday in that story of my life about wondering about "Father and 

Mother in Heaven (and) to ask them If I did right by them when they were on 

earth with me together." When I left home hitch-hiking to places where people 

lived I didn't know I could see upon my Father's face the old tears he shed quite

often. My Mother was probably close to him praying for my safe return because 

her belief, like me, it's always up to God. I had learned much later on that my 

Father said that his hair had turned grey with worry while I was gone. Father had 

gone to the local draft board in Harrisonburg, Virginia not far north, maybe 8

miles , from our home in Dayton. He had asked the local draft board to please

notify him if they caught up with me because they were after me to, threatening 

jail, a fine or a hanging (that hanging part is an outright lie, I don't tell many).

For maybe a year and a half no one knew were I was at until my brother Roland

hitch-hiked to Los Angeles were I was at. Somehow he finally found, but I don't 

remember how. Roland and I spent some time together working not at the same

places of employment but living in one boarding house in Alhambra as I 

remember. If Roland didn't tell our parents were I was at, the local draft board

certainly did and I was drafted in November of 1964. I had transferred my draft

board status from Harrisonburg, Virginia to Los Angeles, California not having 

the money to return and I would have never ask Father for any money to return. 

So if my brother, Roland, didn't tell my family were I was at, the Harrisonburg, 

Virginia draft board certainly did.

Father died in 1991 and all these years from then I believe that I spent so much 

time being with and taking care of his wife, my Mother, to try and make it up to

him. If you are looking Father, I'm sorry.

I know what I'd do for right now. I choose the penny. I'm fat enough.

*President Abraham Lincoln "advocated like much of north to release the slaves

from their bondage. Lincoln dealt with that and the American Civil War 

beginning on April 12, 1861 and ending on May 9, 1865."

"President Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863. 

A very famous speech starts "Four Score and seven years ago . . ." Do you know

what speech it is? On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered 

a short speech at the end of the ceremonies dedicating the battlefield cemetery 

at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. That speech has come to be known as the 

Gettysburg Address. In it, Lincoln paid tribute to the Union soldiers who 

sacrificed their lives for union and equality. Lincoln had no idea at the time 

how famous his short speech would become."


*February 12, 2017.  Lost Penny Day.

*Lost Penny Day was founded in 1995 by Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith.

The first penny ever was designed by Benjamin Franklin and minted in 1787. 

The penny we’re familiar with today, however, adorned with the bust of late 

American president Abraham Lincoln, was first minted in 1909 and released on 

February 12th to commemorate the 100th anniversary of his birth. The founder 

of Lost Penny Day, Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith, wrote a log post about her idea, 

explaining that what she was trying to demonstrate was: “Petty change can make 

an astounding difference”, which is a positive message indeed, and one we can 

suspect Honest Abe himself would have supported. In fact, one of Lincoln’s most 

well-known quotes was, “I walk slowly, but I never walk backward.”

Before my Mother became bedridden at the end her life, Mother and I use to walk

faces down looking for pennies and to this day I pick up any pennies I see on the 

ground. "A penny saved is a penny earned."

Thank you

*February 12, 2017 – NATIONAL PLUM PUDDING DAY

Thank you

In all my years on earth I do not believe that I've ever eaten plum pudding.


"A saying long used is always remembered."

I don't know if you remember the earlier few stories that I've told about my life

about the 50 jobs more or less I've had throughout my life and I've always used 

the phrase above, "what the hell is going on" throughout my life. I was told 

after my Father had passed to Heaven by someone I don't remember that my

Father had used that phrase, maybe also throughout his life. 

A friend and I had stopped at a church yard to rest or or sober up from a night 

of drinking and we were arrested for trespassing and taken to prison (jail). At the 

jail the friend was afraid to call his parents, so I phoned or the jailers called my 

Father to notify him of our imprisonment. He came immediately at sometime late 

at night and as soon as he entered he said "what the hell is going on" not to us the 

offenders, but to our jailers, there names that Father knew by heart.

As I typed in a earlier story of my life and "after Father had passed to Heaven,

sadly, I learned that he cared for me more than I ever knowed." Must I cry again 



*Turkey Arrests 2 Suspected Islamic State Militants. 

Two men suspected of planning Islamic State group attacks in Europe. I hope 

there the ones that hacked in to my PNC (Pittsburgh National Corporation) Bank 

credit card account and charged over $850 to buy airplane tickets on Turkish 


*Report: 72 Arrested on Terror Charges from Countries ( Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, 

Libya, Somalia, Sudan & Iran) Named in Travel Ban. How about the Jews and the 

Native American Indians. Why don't the government ban them the way they've 

been treated.

*Trump Draws Red Line With North Korean Nuclear Testing.

 *North Korea Conducts Ballistic Missile Test.

The missile was launched around 5:55 p.m. Eastern from Banghyeon in North

Pyongan Province and landed in the Sea of Japan. It flew about 300 miles, the 

South's Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said in a statement.

*Japanese PM Rips N Korean Test-Fire: 'Absolutely Intolerable'; Trump Says 

US Behind Japan 100%.

That fat little evil dictator who feeds his vast army, but starves his people is at it 

again. Just leave me in a room alone with that fat little @#^$%#*% for ten 

minutes. It might not even take that long.

*It is predicted that China will become the largest economy in 15 years. If I live 

that long I'll be 89.

*It is predicted that the world will double in size by 2042. If I live that long I'll be 99.

Not a chance in hell.

*The life expectancy in America the Beautiful is 76.73. I need to live 2.480 years

to reach that goal. So, what does this all mean. My brain is so scrambled now 

because of all this figuring, I don't know what to think?

*I mentioned yesterday that the someone in the island nation (yes, nation Trump 

and China) of Taiwan had received the picture postcard I sent to them and they

wrote in an email message “Hi Forrest, thank you so much for the postcard&coins !

Best Wishes, 😉 


What I forgot to do what I usually do and that is to tell you through help from 

Wikipedia the part of the country were they live. I'll correct that right now with 

the following:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



"Taipei, the capital of Taiwan, is a modern metropolis with Japanese colonial 

lanes, busy shopping streets and contemporary buildings. The skyline is 

crowned by the 509m-tall, bamboo-shaped Taipei 101 skyscraper, with upscale 

shops at the base and a rapid elevator to an observatory near the top. Taipei is 

also known for its lively street-food scene and many night markets, including 

expansive Shilin market.

Area: 104.9 mi.

Weather: 59°F (15°C), Wind E at 15 mph (24 km/h), 62% Humidity.

And I have heard nothing from God.

*I have more things for you to write in journal. We have people over on Sunday

to help clean the house, two of us not quite able, and two of us able, Ryan and I 

and if they I come which is most often, I leave the house to find a fast food place

with an outlet and wifi. I've been going to the McDonalds in Wooster, but Ryan 

and I went there yesterday so I came to Taco Bell in Orrville today. The very 

young, helpful and nice young woman called herself "Outlaw Josie Wells." That's 

strange. That's a western movie that I remember from long ago. Maybe one her 

grandparents named her. My all time favorite fast food is the Chicken Soft Taco

and I ordered 3 as usual along with 3 packets of mild sauce. No drink because 

the drinks are about $2.38 and I can buy any drink at McDonald's for a $1.00.

Although I had help I ain't got on the Taco Bell wifi yet?

I awakened this morning a little before 4:00 AM after about 6 hours of sleep, my

usual. I've talked to the people in the house about 30 minutes, my saying "10 

words or less," so I've been alone and not lonely and its 2:22 PM 2/12/2017 EST, 

so I've been alone for about 10 hours. Not bad.

Oh, I forgot. For your journal. Before I left the house I pooped about 1:12 PM 2/12/

2017 EST. I probably won't have any more information for your journal because I

normally only poop once a day. Sorry.

*3:32 PM 2/12/2017 EST. I just went to counter to get one more Chicken Soft Taco

and guess who waited on me this time? You'll never guess. "Annie get your gun."

Two women outlaws in the same place.

*4:48 PM 2/12/2017 EST. I tried to get on Taco Bell with no success. So I left the 2 

outlaws and went to McDonalds and that's were I am now. As I approached the 

counter guess who I encountered? "Casey at the Bat." I'll be damn, two famous

women outlaws and a famous baseball player in one day. Imagine that. I was in 

awe of their presence.

Google. Can't you count to 37? I can count to 40.


*The anti-President Donald Trump Grammy Awards ceremony will be held this

evening, for most folks depending on were you live in the country. It is the 59th

annual Grammy Awards, but the first to excoriate (you look it up, I'm tired of 

dealing with Google) against President Trump. The CBS network will broadcast 

the show live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The anti-Trump ceremony begins at 5:00 PM PST with James Corden as your host.

I'm not going to watch, I never have, but if you want to watch be sure to tune in 

and watch your favorite anti-Trump performer.

*Eva Jacqueline Longoria Bastón, age 41, is an American actress, producer, 

director, activist and businesswoman. Longoria has taken a DNA Test with 

surprising results.  According to DNA testing, Longoria's overall genetic 

ancestry is 70% European, 27% Asian/Indigenous, and 3% African.

You know, I think I'll do that as long as it don't cost too much. I would love

for the results to be at least 1% Native American Indian and if anyone asked, 

I'd tell them I'm part Native American Indian, not telling them about the other 


*Mary Tyler Moore's death has been officially attributed to cardiopulmonary 

arrest, according to a death certificate obtained by ET ( Entertainment Tonight). 

The document also lists aspiration pneumonia, hypoxia (an oxygen deficiency 

in the tissues) and diabetes mellitus as contributing factors in her death on

Jan 30, 2017. 

Mary Tyler Moore was certainly a strong woman and a fighter. With all those

maladies most people would not have survived as long as she did.

"Energy Transfer Partners, which is building the 1,172-mile, four-state oil pipeline

began work Thursday on the final 1,100-foot stretch of the project. “We have 

started the drill to go beneath Lake Oahe and expect to be completed in a total 

of 60 days with another 23 days to fill the line to Patoka,” spokeswoman Vicki 

Granado said. “We look forward to having the pipeline in service in 

approximately 83 days.”

Six protesters have been charge by U.S. Attorney for North Dakota Christopher 

C. Myers.

Three of the five men charged with civil disorder and using fire to commit a 

federal crime are still at large: Brandon Aaron Miller-Castillo, 22; Brennon J. 

Nastacio, 36, and 

“These defendants currently remain fugitives and their whereabouts are 

unknown,” U.S. Attorney for North Dakota Christopher C. Myers’ office said 

in a statement. “Law enforcement is requesting the assistance of the public in 

locating these individuals.”

Co-defendant Michael Mateo Markus was arraigned Feb. 3 in federal court in 

Bismarck. Co-defendant James A. White was arrested Wednesday and slated

to appear in court Monday.

At least one other activist remains in federal jail. Red Fawn Fallis, 37, was initially 

charged with attempted murder for firing three shots as she lay face-down on the 

ground while deputies tried to restrain her, but the Morton County charge later 

was dropped.

Instead, she faces federal counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, 

civil disorder, and discharge of a firearm in relation to a felon crime of violence. 

A trial by jury has been set for March 7 in Bismarck federal court.

Mr. Markus, who also goes by the nickname “Rattler,” has pleaded not guilty. He 

is represented by attorneys from the Water Protector Legal Collective, according 

to court documents.

I forgot who I got the above information from, but whoever it is I thank you. I it's

the Associated Press or CNN I'm in a lot of trouble because they threats come 

close to a hanging.


I'm still pissed off after typing about the Native American Indians yesterday and

now I even more pissed off. God, please let your other chosen people go.

*Republican lawmakers around the country are facing tough and often angry 

questions from constituents who are packing town hall meetings or showing 

up at their offices.

Among their grievances is that the GOP plans to repeal the Affordable Care

Act, or "Obamacare," with no replacement.

The pushback echoes the same raucous confrontations that Democrats faced 

in 2009, when tea party activists sprang into action to oppose what they saw 

as dangerous government overreach by President Barack Obama.

*10:40 AM 2/12/2017 EST. I've just grabbed the weather gauge from outdoors, 

looked around for a minute then came back in the house. There is still some

snow upon that hid from the heat of yesterday. A rain, warm to me at least at 41°

is causing the humidity to rise to rise now at 81%. The American flag on the 

corner border pole is drooping slightly because it's wet with rain and moving the

opposite that it did yesterday from the south and not north.
