*8:04 AM 3/8/201 EST. As you get older your body parts start to wear out. 

Same with furnaces, dishwashers, dryers, wash machines, etc. I woke up this 

morning and the our 15 year old Carrier furnace had stopped running. It must 

have stopped running between 3:30 AM and 7:00 AM because it was warm 

when I got up to pee at 3:30 AM, but was cold when I got up for the final time 

at 7:00 AM. I phoned One Hour Martinizing and they said that they would be out 

around noon and because we were a club member we would only be charged 

$39 + repair parts. I wonder if furnance years are the same as dog years? 

15 years x 7 = 105 years old. We certainly have an old furnace. 

*Update: 9:44 AM 3/8/2017 EST. We were messing around with the furnace 

controls and this old timer started working again so I cancelled the service call.

*I told you before that Mother prayed a lot. She prayed for me when I was gone

for some time and prayed for all of us's kid's safety throughout her life and is 

now praying from Heaven for the very same things. She prayed out loud for 3 

meals a day and prayed I'm sure for peace in the world. Did she say the Lord's 

Prayer? I don't know the answer to that because I don't remember that. 

*I talked to Ryan Micheal earlier this morning. He told me he was off working 

today and with a partial pay check, he was going to Walmart to buy himself a 

computer just like mine. A HP (Hewlett Packard) 15 so he could, like me, begin 

to tell the stories of his life.

*Your Wednesday Briefing -

*7:06 AM 3/8/2017 EST.

Today, for International Women’s Day, let’s see which country tops the list of 

female representation in Parliament. Rwanda. Of 80 seats in the lower house, 49 

are held by women (61 percent), as are 10 of the 26 in the upper house 

(38 percent), according to an international organization of parliaments. 

Since 2003, the country has required that at least 30 percent of representatives 

be female.

Listening to Ban Ki-moon, the U.N. chief, speak to the Rwandan Parliament 

in 2008. The country requires that at least 30 percent of its representatives be 


Next is Bolivia, where a 2009 measure requires women to occupy at least 50 

percent of elected positions. Women now hold 69 of the 130 seats in the lower 

house (53 percent) and 17 of 36 in the upper house (47 percent).

Cuba, which is third, uses “positive discrimination,” putting women in almost 

half the seats in the National Assembly.

Iceland, Nicaragua, Sweden, Senegal, Mexico, Finland and South Africa fill out 

the top 10. The U.S. is No. 104, with 83 women out of 435 representatives, and 21 

of 100 senators.

“The size of your dreams must always exceed your current capacity to achieve 

them,” the Liberian president, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, told a Harvard graduating 

class in 2011. “If your dreams don't scare you, they are not big enough.”

*Crime Number 2: "This a repeat of what I typed last night and again: "I'll tell

you a story of my step brother-in-law, Johnny Rafter tomorrow." I've decided 

to talk to a sheriff's deputy before I type Johnny's Story.... Still have not talked 

to a sheriff's deputy.

When I complete it I'll mail it, return receipt requested, to someone in Chicago

who might be able to help them. I'll only mention names if those in Chicago 

agree to help.... I need just a few more bits of information from a person I know 

to complete my report, mail it Chicago and then, hopefully, this evil will be 

eradicated. 7:22 PM 3/7/2017 EST. 7:22 PM 3/8/2017 EST. I've interviewed 1

five days after receiving it. He said that the first payment to my post office box

the check was worth a plug nickel....

*Your Wednesday Briefing -

*7:06 AM 3/8/2017 EST. Rift over health care proposal.

Republicans who are hoping for a full House vote next week on the plan to 

replace the Affordable Care Act are facing resistance from conservative 

members of their party and skepticism from moderates.Some critics of the bill, 

which maintains many of the act’s mandates and basic benefits, called it 

“Obamacare lite.”

Analysts say that millions of people would be at risk of losing their health 

coverage under the new legislation, especially those in their 50s and 60s. We 

also look at how the Republican plan could affect Medicaid.

The latest trove, labeled Vault 7, appears to show a catalog of C.I.A. tools to
