Thank you.

**YESTERDAY. I published 2 blogs, 1 a postcrossing, 2 videos, and completed 

some paperwork for Wooster Eye Center for my cataract surgery and for Wells 

Fargo for our house refinance application.

I then drove to Rite Aid in Orrville to pick up 2 prescription medications and 2 

plastic containers of 1 single row of fig bars that I'm quite fond of at $1 each. 

After returning to the house, I went outdoors to work in the flower beds, 

spreading all but 1 bag of pearl black mulch, burning dried weeds in the fire pit, 

planting the 3 discounted perennials I bought at Lowes. I also filled the 3 bird 

feeders, trimmed the red rasberry bush and watered all the back beds that I had 

spread the pearl black mulch on following the instructions on the bag.  

I quit early, about 3:30 PM, showered, dress, prepared and ate my salad while 

watching 'Law and Order' on TV, then my prayer and to sleep about 9:00 PM.

**TODAY. After finishing my daily blog, I'll need to register a picture postcard 

that I received yesterday from someone in Germany as a member of and then publish it in a blog, not mentioning their names, 

only typing information about their city/town and their country. 

I'm sure my brother Roland is interested in anything to do with the country of

Germany, he serving as a U. S. Army Special Forces medic for the majority of his 

time in service in Germany. 

At this time I have no videos to process and publish not having produced any 

videos for the last 2 days, so I think I'll spend some time deleting videos that 

have less than 10 views. 

I also need to drive everyone to their hair salon off Arlington Boulevard in Akron

for an appointment at 4:00 PM. It is an hour's drive time each way and I'm glad

for the change of always driving to Orrville or Wooster. I'm going to drive the 

black 2000 VW, a stick shift, I needing to drive barefooted because the brake and 

clutch pedals are small and too close together. 

As for the rest of this morning and early afternoon, we'll wait and see what 



**2 Corinthians 9:7 ESV (English Standard Version).

"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under 

compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."

I enjoy giving to others who need money to survive or those wanting donations 

for a worthy cause. 

Hurricane Harvey has dumped 49 of rain on Houston if my research is correct and

yesterday at this time: 6:40 AM 8/30/2017 EDT under the search box on Google,

it read: "Donate now to Hurricane Harvey relief. Google will double your 


Together we can do more.

Hurricane Harvey

Help support the relief effort.

Donate to help and Google will match your donation.

Together we have raised $1,191,218

Help us reach our goal of $2,000,000

Hurricane Harvey continues to bring devastating amounts of rain and flooding to 

the Gulf Coast, affecting millions of people. You can help by making a donation 

today. To double the impact of your contribution, Google will match the first $1 

million in donations, until together we raise $2 million.

Your donation will go directly to Network for Good and will then be distributed to 

the American Red Cross, which will be opening shelters, providing aid, and 

distributing supplies to victims in Texas and across the Gulf Coast. Google will 

cover all processing fees so that 100% of your donation goes to where it is 

needed most.

Where we're giving:

American Red Cross

Your donation enables the American Red Cross to respond and help people 

recover from this disaster. The Red Cross needs financial donations to be able to 

provide immediate relief to communities impacted by Hurricane Harvey.

Thank you.

Your generosity supports: Hurricane Harvey."

At that time yesterday, I gave by credit card $20. Today I see no: "Donate now to 

Hurricane Harvey relief. Google will double your contribution" so Google must 

have met their goal of $2,000,000. Certainly a worthy cause.

I also donate to scout groups, school groups, the Salvation Army when their 

booths are set up in December, at the checkout line when stores are collecting 

for worthy causes, Wikipedia and which are both free and 

many others that I can't think of right now. 

I tip 10% for less than good service and 20% for great service by 

waitresses/waiters at resturants, Ohio's minimum hourly wage for tipped 

employees is $4.05.

I also give to the poor and homeless, I being homeless in 3 states for a time and 

I know what it means to be without proper shelter having spent time in a 

homeless shelter and in a place I call Harbor Lights, or only my Honda to stay, 

eat and sleep in. I was offered money on several occasions, but politely declined

because I always had a few dollars in my pocket. 

I also remember giving in honor of my Father and Mother to the:

"The Sadie Rose Foundation.
