"Walk the halls of the White House and explore 230 years of POTUS (the 

President of the United States) history."

I will not go to the White House, I've been there at least 8 times and have no 

reason to go back. There is too much turmoil and chaos there right now and

I don't know who is at fault. It has to be President Trump or his sidekick and 

his wife, Melania, who is also the hostess in that house.

*8:38 AM 2/20/2017 EST. The former invisible man and perfect stranger that 

I've been talking to during the day has not awakened from his small bed, like

mine, in the basement, who sleeps in the former southeast coal room that was 

used by unknown people from long ago and who now enjoy the benefits of 


*I have not seen the midnight rider yet today. He has no job as yet and wants 

to find one. He is about 10 years younger than me and says he has a small 

income and we only charge him $50 for a month's rent. Maybe I'll get to talk to

him tomorrow.

"Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday 

in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President 

George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by 

the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22—

Washington’s actual day of birth—the holiday became popularly known 

as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday 

Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s 

workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the 

birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ 

Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past 

and present"



I've cleaned most all day in the house and didn't get out much until about 

3:02 PM today before I went out to clean the deck. Just after Mother stopped

reading, I stopped reading. I have 4 large shelves in my cell-like room on

which I have placed in an organized way the things I need most everyday.


"American as cherry pie" is a quote I've known since childhood and with a scoop 

or two of vanilla ice cream makes the cherry pie even more delicious.

World Day of Social Justice

"World Day of Social Justice is a day recognizing the need to promote efforts 

to tackle issues such as poverty, exclusion and unemployment. Many 

organizations, including the UN and the International Labour Office, make 

statements on the importance of social justice for people. Many organizations 

also present plans for greater social justice by tackling poverty, social and 

economic exclusion and unemployment. The United Nations General Assembly 

has decided to observe 20 February annually, approved on 26 November 2007 

and starting in 2009, as the World Day of Social Justice.

As recognized by the World Summit, social development aims at social justice, 

solidarity, harmony and equality within and among countries and social justice, 

equality and equity constitute the fundamental values of all societies. To 

achieve “a society for all” governments made a commitment to the creation 

of a framework for action to promote social justice at national, regional and 

international levels. They also pledged to promote the equitable distribution 

of income and greater access to resources through equity and equality and 

opportunity for all. The governments recognized as well that economic growth 

should promote equity and social justice and that “a society for all” must be 

based on social justice and respect for all human rights and fundamental 

freedoms.Social justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous 

coexistence within and among nations. We uphold the principles of social 

justice when we promote gender equality or the rights ofindigenous peoples 

and migrants. We advance social justice when we remove barriers that people 

face because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.

For the United Nations, the pursuit of social justice for all is at the core of our 

global mission to promote development and human dignity. The adoption by 

the International Labour Organization of the Declaration on Social Justice for a 

Fair Globalization is just one recent example of the UN system’s commitment 

to social justice. The Declaration focuses on guaranteeing fair outcomes for 

all through employment, social protection, social dialogue, and fundamental 

principles and rights at work.

The General Assembly proclaimed 20 February as World Day of Social Justice 

in 2007, inviting Member States to devote the day to promoting national 

activities in accordance with the objectives and goals of the World Summit 

for Social Development and the twenty-fourth session of the General 

Assembly. Observance of World Day of Social Justice should support efforts 

of the international community in poverty eradication, the promotion of full 

employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being 

and justice for all."

The following are celebrations day's that are continued from yesterday and 

three from several days/months ago: 


I remember being involved in tug-of-wars in the Boy Scouts and family reunions.

I told you about the Goodie Girl gluten-free Mint Slims the other day, but it 

seems like I throw up and/or puke everytime I eat them. I'm still thinking it's my

Gaul Bladder?



I don't know what exactly this means, 40 lashes or one of the heroes of the old 

west that we saw on Saturday in downtown Harrisonburg at the Movie Arcade, 

I believe, and just beside Jess's Lunch. for maybe 25 cents. 

It was a serial that we had to come every Saturday so we wouldn't miss an 

episode. The western hero we dearly liked watching on the big screen was 

Lash LaRue:

*WORLD RADIO DAY - February 13

I remember Mother and I at the house on Ottobine Road and in the kitchen

listening to Stella Dallas on the radio. Mother was cooking or straighten up 

the kitchen while I was jumping around near Mother's elbow with lots of 

energy as we both listened to Stella Dallas on the radio.



I know that Father and I watched wrestling on our very small (5 inch by 5 inch 

or less as I remember)  black and white television (TV) in the house on Ottobine 

Road Maybe my brother, Roland, was watching, my youngest baby brother, 

Jerry, was either in the crib my Father built when he was isolated from the 

family when he caught the mumps, learning to walk with Mother's assistance 

and my sister, Nancy, was probably outdoors with flashlights blazing, to try 

and developed the perfect plan for reducing her risk of dying when she once 

again planned to jump off the chicken house roof or maybe Roland having 

nothing else to do, so he went outdoors in the darkness of of the night and 

pushed his sister off the roof?

"The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" was a movie that Clint Eastwood starred in

and I have enjoyed this movie several times. 

Father and I labeled good wrestlers Good, and it's opposite the bad wrestlers we

consider both Bad and Ugly and we always rooted for the Good.

One Bad and Ugly wrestler I remember Father and I watching was Killer

*9:25 AM 2/20/2017 EST. I also clean the house because no one else is able

to do the cleaning, except for Carolyn and I. who both expect a an almost 

perfect cleaning. I told you about me taking Ryan to his uncle's in Berea, Ohio

just maybe 15 miles more or less southwest of Cleveland and expecting a 

woman on Sunday to clean the house. The people who have maybe scammed 

us for $10,000 for cleaning and other things that were promised paying back, 

but we have not received a penny. 

Our next stop is small claims court or other in Wooster.

*4:05 AM 2/16/2017 EST. Kim Jong-nam: More arrests over airport poisoning

BBC News.

They killed the wrong *&$@&%!*, Kim Jong-nam, the half-ass-brother-law-to

that evil dictator in North Korea they call the "hog-tied fat little @#^$%#*%. 

If they had killed that "hog-tied fat little @#^$%#*% then his tormentors could 

head south to freedom in their boxcar "named "Desire."

*6:59 AM 2/20/2017 EST. I went outdoors to get a coffee mug that I'd forgot 

to bring in last night when I was met with a fog of such magnitude that I could 

only see, for a distance of about 50 feet, like they say is a constant companion

on the moors of the empire they call Britain.

The sky from earth to Heaven was banded in horizontal combinations starting 

with the ground of God in grey-black, the middle of white-grey and the top a 

blaze of grey. The sky looked much like a girdle wrapping around the Heavens 

with the "grey-black, the middle of white-grey and the top a blaze of grey," a

glorious sight to me in this early morning darkness.

The temperature is 41° and and the humidity is 80% caused by the moisture in 

this fog of God's early darkness of this morning.

The wind is almost silent because of the wind upon my chest, indicating to me, 

a wind blowing in from the north at maybe 2 to 3 mph (miles per hour).
