*I told you yesterday that I was driving Bill and Carolyn to the hair salon. Now 

I have more details about where I'm driving them to. The hair salon is Scot Talbot

Slone and is located 1041 East Turkeyfoot Road in Akron. I've just wiped the 

snow off the Honda and I'm ready to go although we don't have to be there until

2:00 PM. We'll probably leave about 12:45 PM. And, of course, I'm not getting

my hair cut. My hair is almost 3 inches down from shoulders now and it will stop 

growing sometime following my drop dead date.

*My son, Michael, and his wife Erin will come in later today for about a day and 

a half visit. They are on the way to the Bahamas for a vacation. I'll let you know of

the details later.

after 5:00 PM today. We should be back from the hairdressers to welcome them 

in to the house.

City in Turkey

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the 

Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires 

that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era 

Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks 

also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century 

dome and rare Christian mosaics.

Four Fallen Heroes

By Bob Corso | Posted: Fri 3:48 AM, May 19, 2006
Four members of law enforcement in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County 

have lost their lives in the line of duty.

They were remembered in a special service Thursday evening at Thomas 

Harrison Middle School.

Sergeant Manuel Trenary of the Harrisonburg Police Department was shot by 

a burglar in 1959.

Patrolman Wayne Stoutamyer of the Bridgewater Police Department was shot 

by an assailant who came to his home in 1976.

Deputy John Rafter of the Rockingham County Sheriff's Office was shot by a 

prisoner he was transporting in 1983.

Chief Bill Davies of the Grottoes Police Department died in a traffic accident 

in 1988.

The service honored those fallen and those who now serve.

Virginia House of Delegates member Chris Saxman said, "thank them. Because 

the work they do is so important in keeping our way of life in the Shenandoah 

Valley so wonderful."

Johnny was my step brother-in-law and a nice young man. He was shot and 

killed by the prisoner he was escorting because, at that time, there were no  

bars seperating the front seat from the back seat. The prisoner was sitting in  

the passenger seat beside Johnny, he reached for Johnny's gun and shot Johnny

dead. I remember talking to the prosecuting attorney who said he could almost

promise the death penalty but it did not happen. Is Johnny's killer still in prison?

I don't know that, but I'll find out.

I remember being a part of the funeral procession from his funeral service

to his burial site about 3 miles east of Harrisonburg off U. S. Route 33. The 

Sheriff's Department and other policing departments from all over lined 

Johnny's last 3 mile journey to his final resting place. And then, like now, my 

tears are streaming from my eyes onto my old and weathered face.
*Evil Number 1: "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 

person today and I need to interview 1 more person for collaboration and then 

I can prepare my report and mail it." 12:01 PM 3/10/2017 EST. I interviewed 

that 2nd person yesterday, but because their eye witness accounts were 

somewhat different, I now need to interview them together.

*Crime Number 3: "Aron the Scammer." "It didn't take long before they returned a 

said the check was worth a plug nickel...." Wells Fargo said that they would turn

the matter over to their fraud unit. "Aron the Scammer" kept calling me and 

emailing me to see if the bank had cleared the check? I responded by saying 

that the check was still on hold. I didn't tell him that it was bogus and would be 

on hold forever....

Game of Thrones' Season 7 Finally Has a Premiere Date

Megan McCluskey - Mar 09, 2017

The highly-anticipated seventh season of Game of Thrones will officially return 

on July 16.

Following a year-long hiatus, the world of Westeros will return for its 

penultimate season—a shortened seven-episode installment that will continue 

the stories of Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and the rest of the realm's 

remaining players.HBO made the announcement on Facebook Live Thursday 

after previously stating that the premiere had been pushed back from spring to 

summer due to a scenery related filming delay. "Now that winter has arrived on 

Game of Thrones, executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss felt that 

the storylines of the next season would be better served by starting production 

a little later than usual, when the weather is changing," explained programming 

president Casey Bloys.

*5:47 AM 3/10/2017 EST. This Is the One Thing Alec Baldwin Likes About Donald 

Trump. Alec Baldwin openly opposes almost everything about the president he 

portrays so often on Saturday Night Live, but he does appreciate one thing about 

Donald Trump: his relationship with his children.


*Alec  Baldwin said that if George W. Bush won the presidency he would leave 

the United States. The "smart Alec" is still here. He advertised the Capitol One 

credit card. I cancelled my Capitol One credit card because of the "smart Alec."

He has had some family squabbles involving his daughter I believe. President 

Trump seems to get along well with all family members. I would like to see 

President Trump signing an executive order deporting all Hollywood  "smart 

Alec's" from this country.

*6:35 AM 3/10/2017 EST. I purchased an Acu-Rite weather gauge over a week 

ago at Walmart. It is a Wifi setup were you place the unit that calculates the 

weather outdoors and the indoor monitor displays the outdoor and indoor 

temperature, the moon phases, future forecast, barometric pressure, time and

date. Right now the indoor temperature 73°, the outdoor temperature is 36°, the

moon phases I don't understand yet, the barometric pressure is 29.89, the time
