**I drove to Wooster yesterday to go to Drug Mart. I need some different picture postcards

to send as a member of Drug Mart is one of the few stores that carry 

them, but I didn't see any different ones, but I still bought 3 of the same kind I already 

have, 3 for $1. I also bought PowerAde 15 for $10, cottage cheese, a pink fly swatter and a

lime and an orange so I can change, after a month or so, my orange, lemon and lime water

in my large V-8 bottle. 

I finally planted those 10 plants yesterday. One of the plants, whose color was a 

beautiful mixed violet, fell apart when I removed it from its' black plastic container so that

I was able to plant about 5 plantings of the same plant. The instructions said 1 to 3 hours

of morning sun so I planted it in dark places in 3 of the 5 flower beds in the back of the 


I uploaded at least 2 videos to YouTube and then published and shared at least 2. I can see

subscribe buttons on both YouTube and Blogger, but I don't know if they are working. I still

have only 6 subscribers.

**Today and tomorrow calls for much the same weather: Today calls for a high 

temperature of 74° and scattered showers. Tomorrow (Sunday) the weather forecasters

predict a high temperature of 77° with scattered thunderstorms. 

For the first time in a while I'm running out of things to do in the flower beds and the yard

unless I go back to Lowes and purchase some more discounted plants.

I remember the story that my grandfather Cline telling my grandmother Cline that he was

going to retire. She ask him what he was going to do "you have no hobbies.?" My 

grandfather replied that he was going to "dig thistles."

So if nothing else and the weather allows I'm going to pull/"dig" weeds.


**It's kind of interesting how some habits are passed down from generation to generation.

I drink a lot of coffee because I like the taste and it stirs me up in morning to face a brand 

new day. I probably drink 3 to 4 mugs of brewed Folger's coffee each day.

If I desire coffee at a fast food restaurant, I prefer McDonald's coffee which is even better

than Folgers. I don't know what the name is for McDonald's coffee, but I know the name of

Burger King's coffee because I asked. It's Seattle's Best. It might be Seattle's Best, but it's

an inferior coffee to my taste.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of 

berries from the Coffea plant. The genus Coffea is native to tropical Africa, and 

Madagascar, the Comoros, Mauritius and RĂ©union in the Indian Ocean. The plant was 

exported from Africa to countries around the world and coffee plants are now cultivated in 

over 70 countries, primarily in the equatorial regions of the Americas, Southeast Asia, 

India, and Africa. The two most commonly grown are the highly regarded arabica, and the 

less sophisticated but stronger and more hardy robusta. Once ripe, coffee berries are 

picked, processed, and dried. Dried coffee seeds (referred to as beans) are roasted to 

varying degrees, depending on the desired flavor. Roasted beans are ground and brewed 

with near boiling water to produce coffee as a beverage."

So let me get back to what I was saying at the beginning. 

My Father and Mother drank coffee and maybe their parents drank coffee and so on and so 

on. I don't believe it's in your genes to drink coffee, but it's because your forbears drank 

coffee. The Lowes employee I met for the 2nd time the other day said his long dead 

relatives who lived under British rule in India (The East India Company (EIC), also known 

as the Honourable East India Company (HEIC) or the British East India Company and 

informally as John Company) drank tea because the English drank tea just as he and they

do today.

A book written by Donald Bain, 'Coffee or Tea, or Me' was published 1967. What would I 

choose of the 3? Just coffee and me. As to the tea, no thank you.


*9:20 AM 5/27/2017 EDT. Exclusive: Tillerson declines to host Ramadan event at State 

Department. Reuters - ‎16 hours ago‎.

"WASHINGTON Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to 

mark Islam's holy month of Ramadan ...."

**Secretary of State Tillerson, a former Exxon Mobile executive, is a man I liked because 

of the way he has conducted himself. I'm sure it's not prejudice on his part, but you never 

know. I hope his excuse will be legitimate.

*7:57 AM 5/27/2017 EDT. It's the NBA (National Basketball Association) championship 

playoffs once again and the same 2 teams as last year are playing for the championship.

Last year the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors in Game 7 (Sunday, 

June 19), 93 - 89, to win the crown.

This year (2017) the first game will be played on Thursday, June 1 in the Oracle Arena in 

Oakland, California at 9:00 PM EDT. ABC will air the event. 

Of course, I'll be rooting for the Cavaliers, Cleveland just being about 50 miles north of 

here. My prediction: The Cavaliers will win in 6 games.

*7:49 AM 5/27/2017 EDT. Sen. Tim Kaine's son among 8 charged with disrupting pro-

Trump rally. Fox News - ‎10 hours ago‎.

"Sen. Tim Kaine's youngest son was one of eight people charged in Minnesota Friday in 

relation to their alleged disruption of a rally supporting President Trump."

**"Like father, like son," maybe. 

Senator Timothy Michael Kaine, age 59, is a junior senator from Virginia where I was born. 

He also served as governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010. He was also Hillary Clinton's 

sidekick during the last presidential election.

And guess what? He's a carpet bagger/Yankee. He was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota. 

Shame on my fellow Virginia's for electing him to office.
