**Facebook is a social media web site that I've finally got use to using. At least as

a beginner anyway. You can never tell if someone is unhappy with you or not 

unless they tell you. As far as I know no one is upset at me yet, although I feel that

sometimes I'm being shunned, like the Amish do sometimes, and I don't know what

to make of that. Is it because I don't setup my Facebook page to chat when I don't 

have time for that?

**2:23 PM 3/16/2017 EDST. I'm here in a pulmonary doctor's office on the same 

floor of the Wooster Community Hospital as Dr. Kwok. It's Bill's first appointment

with Dr. Mueller. As a result of Bill's last and long stay in this hospital it has 

generated a long list of doctor visits and I'll be driving him to all of them. 

**5:41 PM 3/16/2017 EDST. I just learned that Bill has an appointment with Dr. 

Kwok tomorrow. You know what they say "a doctor a day keeps your relatives

**I can remember from seeing something in writing that COSTCO was one of

Walmart. The letters COSTCO don't stand for anything, but a rumor spread 

online says that said it stands for "China Off Shore Trading Company."

What Happened On This Day – March 16

*1988 A poison gas attack kills 5000 civilians in the Kurdish town of Halabjah

The war crime was in all likelihood executed on the orders of Iraqi despot 

Saddam Hussein.

Hussein was found hiding in a hole, convicted of war crimes and hanged. 

*1988 In Northern Ireland, an Ulster loyalist kills 3 people at a Provisional IRA 

(Irish Republican Army) funeral. Michael Stone was later convicted of the

future would be together.

**If you care to read I doing pretty good healthwise. I'm in third place as far as 

going to doctors and/or hospitals. Bill goes to doctors and hospitals the most, 

so he is in 1st place. Carolyn is in 2nd place and Ryan is in 4th place. I was in 4th 

place for a while when Ryan had 2 seizures. But he has not needed medical 

care for a while and I've had bouts of chronic bronchitis and congestive heart 

failure in my right leg when my right foot was swollen. But that has disappeared 

after Dr. Kwok prescribed for me a water draining pill. I'm still drinking too 

much coffee and not enough of my orange, lime and lemon water that I have in

a large V-8 bottle. 

**7:46 AM 3/16/2017 EDST. I just eaten an Orleans sardine sandwich. I don't have 

any of my Shar gluten-free bread left and to get that I'll have to go to Walmart. 

I'm using 100% whole wheat bread now. Coffee is said to reduce pain as well as

gluten-free foods that I told you about.

**9:43 AM 3/16/2017 EDST. I've just made my 2nd pot of Folgers coffee. My 2nd 

sandwich of this day is Alaskan wild caught salmon from a can with two slices of 

slicing tomatoes and Himalayan Pink Salt with 81 minerals that are also in your

**I received a new credit card the other day from my PNC (Pittsburgh National 

Corporation) Bank. It is called a cash builder that pays you money back for 

using the card for purchases. I've been having so much trouble lately with 

hacked and stolen cards, that I told you about, that if this card is hacked or 

stolen I can use the old credit card right away.

**Evil Number 1. I'm still working on the facts and maybe rumors of this case 

for those 2 young people. Like I told you before I have a rough draft but I want

the letter to that someone in Chicago to be almost perfect before I send it.

**Crime Number 2. I still need to phone my bank's fraud department and the 

Wooster Police Department to find out the progress of the investigation into my

stolen billfold, credit cards and other important documents.

**I entertain myself. I do, however, watch those police investigating shows on 

television were in the end the murderer, rapist, etc, is caught and given the 

proper punishment. Why do people watch this kind of entertainment?

Is it because we are vengeful when God said "Vengeance is Mine? I believe we 

are all vengeful in some way meaning that we are not perfect and I believe the

Lord will forgive us for that.
