YESTERDAY AND TODAY

**To those 2 young people who were working at a Sugardale booth right outside Buehlers

grocery store who were giving away out free samples of half a hot dog with mustard and 

ketchup by it's side, the video you helped me with failed to load on my web cam that I had 

on my right hand. 

Besides the 1/2 a hot dog, there was a wheel to spin giving the $1 to $3 off on a Sugardale 

product. They said that they may be at some other events like the July 4 parade and 

carnival in Orrville and/or the Wayne County Fair in September, so hopefully we may 

meet again and make another video. Oh, by the way, the young man said that he and the 

young woman were dating and I think that they would make a perfect duo. Thank you, and 

until we meet again.

If you read my (blog) story yesterday you know that I spent much of my time 

attempting to remain on the internet. I troubleshooted everything and the last thing I tried 

worked. The 3 green buttons on the router were out and I simply pushed the button in the 

back. The same thing happens in my 1986 Honda Accord and in my room If I loose 

something I find it, normally, in the last place I look. It would save me a lot of time if I 

could figure out the last place and look there first. 

I also needed to scan the front of the 4 picture postcards I'm sending as a member of 

postcrossing.com, but the printer and scannier were not working because of the WiFi going

down. Maybe I can fix that tomorrow.

After finally finishing my story (blog) and posting it I went outdoors to plant 1 plant that

needs 3-6 hours of morning sun, set a fire in the fire pit after throwing gasoline on the 

dried weeds, sunflower stumps from last year and other dried plantings that did not belong 

in the flower beds and the yard. 

**I'm going to Walmart again today. I like going to Walmart, besides purchasing groceries

and other things, I like exchanging pleasantries with other people. Why Walmart? Because

there are a lot more people there than in most other stores that I can be friendly to.

The weather forecast for today calls for a high temperature of 85° and scattered thunder-

storms. I hope the rains scatter here which will be good for the flower beds and the yard 

plus I won't have to water them again today.

I know for sure now that I have a subscribe button on my YouTube videos that lasts 

through the entire video. I have about 20 videos either to be uploaded to YouTube or 

to be processed and published. I believe I'll wait for a while to see if my videos are worth

seeing if more people subscribe. I have 6 subscribers and you can always unsubscribe by

clicking the same button.


I HAVE SOMETHING ON MY MIND

**Flower beds and the yard. 

Maybe I should have been a farmer like my Uncle Lester wanted to be?

My Mother's family tree were mostly farmers and my Father's were mostly carpenters.

"Like Father, like son." But not me. I typed about the jobs I've had during my life time and 

the approximate pay I received in maybe 4 to 5 continuous stories (blogs). If I remember 

correctly, I've had about 55 jobs, the last 1 at a large (3 story) Walmart in Omaha, 

Nebraska at $9.50 an hour. I worked there in produce from about the 1st of October (2015) 

until the middle of January, 2017. I slept in my car in that same Walmart parking and then 

lived in an apartment that my daughter-in-law Erin found for me. But the outdoor cold was 

still too cold for me, so I pulled up stakes and went to Las Vegas and slept in another 

Walmart parking lot for about 5 months until the last of May, 2016 and then drove back to 

Ohio and the house.

I'm getting a little bit off track here. Let's get back to the flower beds, the yard and 

farming.

My Mother's oldest brother was a farmer just like his Father, my grandfather Cline.

Uncle Orvin was that farmer and his wife, Aunt Esther, named after the Book of Esther in 

the Bible, had 3 boys. Franklin, who I talked about yesterday, was the oldest and then 

Leroy and Louis in that order, 3 stepping stones going downwards of 3 boys. "Like Father, 

like son(s)?" No, only Louis (we have the same birth-dates, October 27, but he, of course, 

is much younger I being the second oldest cousin next to Franklin) who took over the 

home place where Mother and her siblings grew up.

Franklin worked at a trucking company, his wife, Mary, Mary quite contrary, at a bank, I 

believe, and Leroy worked at Hershey's Chocolate, his wife, Doris, at a community college,

When you get right down to it, because I took after my Mother's family, I should have 

been a farmer and my Uncle Lester, Mother's baby brother, wanted to be a farmer

because his Father, my grandfather Cline, was a farmer like maybe his father and his father 

and so and so on along with their wives, Uncle Orvin along with Aunt Esther and their 

youngest son and my first cousin Louis.

You've heard stories of the farmer's daughter. Well, if Uncle Lester would have become a 

farmer he'd have 2 farmer's daughters instead of 1. Brenda and Connie.

My Father, although a carpenter by trade, came very close to being a farmer when he built

a small farm for Mother on Ottobine Road.


NEWS AND A COMMENT

*6:34 AM 6/4/2017 EDT. Terror attacks in London leave seven dead and dozens wounded, 

police say. Washington Post - ‎30 minutes ago.‎

"LONDON - British police on Sunday confirmed another fatality in the terrorist attack in 

London's vibrant London Bridge area, raising the death toll to seven."

**The U. S. has not had the frequency recently of terrorists suicide bombings except 

September 11 and at the Boston Marathon. What is the U. S. doing right and mostly 

western Europe doing wrong?

Britain is sometimes called the British Isles among other names meaning they govern 

many islands beside their own. For an example:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Falklands War

The Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas), also known as the Falklands. 

"Conflict, Falklands Crisis, and the Guerra del Atl├íntico Sur (Spanish for "South Atlantic 

War"), was a ten-week war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over two British 

overseas territories in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands, and South Georgia and the 

South Sandwich Islands. It began on Friday, 2 April 1982, when Argentina invaded and 

occupied the Falkland Islands (and, the following day, South Georgia and the South 

Sandwich Islands) in an attempt to establish the sovereignty it had claimed over them. On 

5 April, the British government dispatched a naval task force to engage the Argentine 

Navy and Air Force before making an amphibious assault on the islands. The conflict 

lasted 74 days and ended with the Argentine surrender on 14 June 1982, returning the 

islands to British control. In total, 649 Argentine military personnel, 255 British military 

personnel, and three Falkland Islanders died during the hostilities."

Meaning that the British Empire is so spread out that they have an almost impossible task 

of preventing terrorism if suicide bombers would decide to attack one of these populated 

islands. 

I know that not all Muslims are terrorists, most believe in peace, but how can you tell?

The best solution I can think of is to ban all Muslim refugees and deport all Muslims from 

the British Empire.


*7:20 AM 6/4/2017 EDT. London attackers kill seven, PM May says 'enough is enough'

Reuters - 18 minutes ago.

**Like Prime Minister Teresa May who I have compared to Prime Minster Margaret 

Thatcher and her relationship with President Reagan, I like all 3 and also Michelle Obama

who is liked by former President George W. Bush who I also like.

I'm sure that in time Prime Minster May, Scotland Yard and other intelligence and/security 

forces will figure it out and prevent, like the U. S., with President Trump's executive orders

banning Muslim refugees from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen who 

all, in part, sponsor terrorism. 

I know in the end, she will in time and in part, overcome this threat from the terrorist's 

world.


*12:17 PM 6/4/2017 EDT. Eight police fired 50 bullets to stop London attackers: police 

chief. Reuters - 25 minutes ago.

**Reminds me of a shooting and killing of 2 people in Cleveland about 50 miles due north 

of here. I believe that the 2 people in a car were chased by numerous policeman because 

the chase went through many jurisdictions. At the end, when the 2 people in their car were 

surrounded, the police fired over a 100 bullets. 

The outcome. Not one of the bullets could be traced back to a single policeman's gun so 

none of the policeman were charged. That doesn't, somehow, seem right to me.  


**Comment: I'm tired of hearing and seeing videos of death, blood, guts and destruction.

The opponents of President Trump's executive refugee banning order might like to see it 

but I don't much care for it.
