392nd post - 13 Mar 17 - 2026 EDST - FINIAL EDITION

STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

*4:17 PM 3/13/2017 EDST. I've just now returned from taking Bill to the Wooster

Community Hospital for a blood test to check his wayfarin level and to Dr. Kwok's

office for 2 shots. His health because of COPD is not good. Carolyn has to deal

with diabetes and is getting so much better that she may in time reverse this 

affliction. Ryan is here now after I picked him up at his uncles' and drove him back 

to the house to see Michael and Erin before they left to return to their home in

Omaha. Ryan occasionally has some trouble with his back and his seizures are

controlled as long as he takes his Tegretol on schedule. Me, I'm "healthy as a

horse."

Commonwealth of Virginia.

Also known as Empire Day

*Earmuff Day - I remember as a child wearing earmuffs. I don't see people

*Fill Our Staplers Day - I cannot believe that someone would devote a whole 

day to filling your stapler unless you have a lot of them, of course.

Observed Monday of the second full week of March

He was my sentry dog in South Korea whose job was to alert me if there where

any attempts to encroach onto the nuclear site that he and I patrolled.

*Ken Day - "Celebrates the occasion in 1961 when Barbie's long-term on-off

be a day to give or receive jewelry, it could also be a day to recognize jewelers. 

It may also be a day to wear those gems you may already have!

www.nationaldaycalendar.com/national-jewel-day-march-13/

This Day in History, March 13

What Happened On This Day – March 13

*2013 Pope Francis succeeds Pope Benedict XVI. Jorge Mario Bergoglio from 

Argentina became the 266th leader of the Catholic Church, which has 1.2 billion 

members around the world.

MY OPINION 

I like Pope Francis. During my long life I've been through the life of several 

Popes. None have captured my attention as much as Pope Francis. He is not 

afraid to join the world community and express his views on a variety of subjects.

And he, like me, likes to always be a good samaritan.

*1997 A series of unidentified lights appear over Phoenix, Arizona. The Phoenix 

Lights caused heated debate in the UFO community. It emerged later that some 

of the lights were caused by illumination flares dropped from a U.S. Air Force 

plane.

*1943 German troops liquidate the Jewish ghetto in Kraków. Thousands of men, 

women and children were murdered by the nazis or deported to extermination 

camps. The horrific event is portrayed in the film, Schindler's List.

MY OPINION

I don't know what month this happened me being born in October of 1942, but I

do know that I'm ashamed of my heritage. I'm a full-blooded German and I'm 

outraged at what my long ago relatives did to God's chosen people. 

*1845 Felix Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto is premiered. The German 

composer's opus 64 is one of the most frequently performed violin concertos 

in history.

*1781 Uranus is discovered. German-born British astronomer William Herschel 

is credited with the planet's discovery. It is the third largest planet by radius in 

the solar system.

*It is said in a song that I or someone else was born on the banks of the 

Shenandoah River. Well, that was not exactly me. I was born in the old 

Rockingham Memorial Hospital probably about 12 miles west of the North Fork

of the Shenandoah River in the Shenandoah Valley. Maybe this song doesn't

exactly match the circumstances of my birth, but I like it anyway.

HEALTH

*9:40 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. I am preparing at this very minute a Orleans sardine 

sandwich. I do not get tired of eating this same sandwich every day. I have heard

that 1/2 of the population of the world get their protein from fish. I know that that

is not the case in this country. A lot of people can't stand fish. They eat beef, pork

and chicken mainly. But I know that I get most of my protein from fish. I also know 

that the oceans and rivers are being depleted of fish. What will happen if we allow 

the environments of fish to be depleted? We cannot let that happen. We must 

change to sustainable fishing in order to maintain and improve the fish habitats.

department or the Wooster Police Department. Maybe tomorrow.

*Evil Number 1: I'm still working on the rough draft that I'll eventually mail to an

address I have in Chicago. 

*Crime Number 3: "Aron the Scammer." "I didn't tell him that it was bogus and 

would be on hold forever...." 

So, my plan was to keep lying to "Aron the Scammer" that the check was still 

being checked out and that I would send the Moneygram to Warsaw, Poland 

when the check cleared. I had contacted the U. S. government agency that dealt

with international frauds and scams by email but I had received no reply as yet.

7:07 PM 3/13/2017 EDST. I'm still lying to "Aron the Scammer" in telling him by

that the check will never be good.

*8:25 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. Scottish independence: Nicola Sturgeon to seek 

second referendum. BBC News - ‎25 minutes ago‎.

be held between the autumn of 2018 and the spring of the following year.

*11:29 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. 'Politics is not a game', says UK PM May after 

Scottish referendum call. Reuters - 7 minutes ago.

MY OPINION

I want Scotland to be free of the British Empire. I don't know exactly what Prime 

Minister Theresa May says by saying 'Politics is not a game,' but it appears that

she and her government are against any attempt by Scotland to be free of British

domination. Our country has a motto, "Live Free or Die." Will it take that for 

Scotland to be free of their present ruler?

*8:05 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. Turkey will 'surely have sanctions' against the 

Netherlands: minister. Reuters - 12 minutes ago.

MY OPINION

For the life of me I don't understand the continuing war of words between Turkey 

and the Netherlands (Dutch). Turkey has a war-like history and is now involved 

with the war in Syria because of its closeness to that country whereas the Dutch,

most recently, have been a neutral and peaceful country? I hope that this will be

resolved soon. 

*11:29 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. Philippines' President Rodrigo Roa Duterte asks 

military to tell China vast sea area 'is ours.' - Fox News - 18 minutes ago.

MY OPINION

I like President Duterte. He is his people's President. If you're a good citizen that is.

He has used murder squads to kill drug dealers, threatened to throw corrupt 

officials from a helicopter saying that he has done it before and he verbally 

battles any country that would go against the good for his people. 


POLITICS

*7:39 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. Trump budget expected to seek historic contraction 

of federal workforce.

By Damian Paletta March 12 at 7:47 PM

"If President Trump’s budget proposal is enacted, the new Washington will be 

one of dramatically fewer employees throughout the federal government, with 

priorities in military and homeland security. (Jonathan Newton/The Washington 

Post).

President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake the federal 

government to its core if enacted, culling back numerous programs and 

expediting a historic contraction of the federal workforce.

This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude 

— and all at once — since the drawdown following World War II, economists and 

budget analysts said.

The spending budget Trump is set to release Thursday will offer the clearest 

snapshot of his vision for the size and role of government. Aides say that the 

president sees a new Washington emerging from the budget process, one that 

prioritizes the military and homeland security while slashing many other areas, 

including housing, foreign assistance, environmental programs, public 

broadcasting and research. Simply put, government would be smaller and less 

involved in regulating life in America, with private companies and states playing 

a much bigger role...."

.... "According to an economic analysis by Mark Zandi, chief economist for 

Moody’s Analytics, the reductions outlined so far by Trump’s advisers would 

reduce employment in the region by 1.8 percent and personal income by 3.5 

percent, and lower home prices by 1.9 percent...."

MY OPINION 

President Trump has been a businessman all his life. The government should

be run as a business. President Trump will run the government as business and

I'm quite satisfied with that.

*11:33 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. Conway brushes off McCain demand to prove wiretap 

claim or retract. Fox News - ‎1 hour ago.‎

*7:45 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. I'm looking at my new AcuRite all weather gauge that's

sitting on the top of my dresser just to the right of my computer where I'm typing

my story of my life for today. The indoor temperature is 69°, the outdoor is 25°, 

the barometric pressure is 30.01 and the moon is in its full phase.

Looks like we're going to have snow for next 3 days counting today and if the 

wind continues like the last 2 days, it will be very blustery and cold outside. I 

actually wore my long pants when I went to Berea where his uncle lives to pick 

up Ryan.

*10:56 AM 3/13/2017 EDST. I went out to take the trash containers to the road. 

The old all weather gauge reads a temperature of 23°, the humidity is 57%, the

wind is blowing in from the west at about 10 mph (miles per hour), the sun is 

shining brightly but has little affect on the wind chill of today. 

Michael and Erin are planning to leave here from about 2:00 to 4:00 PM into a 

snowstorm heading east while they're heading west to Omaha. I will pray for 

their safety.

*4:24 PM 3/13/2017 EDST. 

Blizzard set to pound Northeast with heavy snow, high winds - Fox News - ‎3 hours 

ago‎. Tens of millions of Americans braced Monday for what could be the biggest 

storm to slam the Northeast this winter, threatening to snarl Spring Break travel 

plans as it dumps up to 2 feet of snow outside New York City.

*5:48 PM 3/13/2017 EDST. Just heard from Erin. Michael does all the driving.

They are now on the Ohio Turnpike and encountering the first of this major 

snowstorm affecting an estimated 90 million people. With the total population

of the continental or lower 48 (states) of United States at over 316 million 

people, this major snow storm is affecting about 35% of the population.

Airports are cancelling flights throughout the snowstorm areas.

STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

*My heart stopped dead in February of 1998. I was legally dead for about 10 

minutes the first time and for 1 to 2 minutes about 3 times after that.  The 

doctors said that I suffered some brain damage as a result and would only live

for about a year if my sources are correct. So, I'm still upon this earth after 19

years this last month. Why am I still alive? I remember at the time I was upset 

because being dead for those few minutes was the most peaceful time in my 

life. 

There are some questions I've thought about since my heart stopped. Why was I 

allowed to live and some small child was made to die? Could not a small child 

add more to the goodness of the world with many years of life left to live than 

I who have just a few or more years left to live? I do not understand the working 

of our Lord and the Heavens? Will I never know the answers to these questions?

Perhaps not. 

But I still believe a child with many years left to live should live in place of me who 

has only a few short years of life to live.

get out of the basement." Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to remember things

from my distant past.

*"If you are looking to restore your energy, look younger, and reverse disease 

then ashwagandha may be the herb you’re looking for. As you’re about to see, 

ashwagandha benefits are impressive.

Ashwagandha, is an adaptogenic herb popular in Ayurvedic medicine that has 

shown incredible results for lowering cortisol and balancing thyroid hormones.

In India, ashwagandha is known as the “strength of the stallion” since it has 

traditionally been used to strengthen the immune system after illness.

Ashwagandha has also been referred to as Indian ginseng because of its ability 

to enhance stamina and has extraordinary stress relieving properties."

STORIES OF MY LIFE AND TOLD IN ONE DAY....

*I got back to the house yesterday about 4:30 PM after driving Carolyn to the 

hair salon. I got lost on the way there after getting directions from Bill. Carolyn

phoned the salon and someone on the line guided me to the salon by phone

from where I was at at the time. I took Interstates 77 and 76 back most of the way

with more traffic than I wanted to contend with. The next time I'll use Google 

directions.

*Michael and Erin (my son and daughter-in-law) got to the house last night 

about 8:00 PM just as I was lying down to sleep. I got up, gave them each a hug 

and then came back to my room and went to sleep.

*Michael and Erin got up about 11:30 AM because they staid up until 

about 4:00 AM last night talking to Carolyn. We together have not decided what

we'll do today yet. Erin mentioned something about a cheese shop that I know 

nothing about.

*Ryan is still in Berea, Ohio near Cleveland staying with his uncle for awhile, 

but his mother said he wanted to come back home to see his brother so I'll 

drive up to Berea tomorrow and drive Ryan back home to the house.

Observed Saturday of the first full week of March

*International Fanny Pack Day

Observed the second Saturday of March

*Johnny Appleseed Day - Ryan and I usually go to the Johnny Appleseed Festival

that is held in Apple Creek, Ohio every year. It's only about a 20 minute drive 

south of here.

*National Promposal Day - Does this mean prompt disposal.

*Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day - Sounds "finger lickin good."

*World Day of Muslim Culture, Peace, Dialogue and Film

I have met many Muslims in my life and none of the radical variety.  I've met 

and talked to two Muslim women recently. One was at the hospital in Virginia 

where I was confined to the 5th floor. She was also a Kurd and was one of the 

cleaning crew. The second that I remember was at the Walmart in Las Vegas 

where I slept in the Honda. She worked at that Walmart and was always very 

friendly to me.

I guess what I'm saying is everyone is pretty much the same except for their 

belief in God, Allah, itc.

Published March 09, 2017  FoxNews.com.

"You already know working out regularly can help keep you slim, boost your 

mood, aid your sleep, and even stave off disease. But a new study has identified 

a potential mode of exercise that may help optimize the reversal of any unwanted 

signs of aging — high-intensity interval training (HIIT)....

....The one thing HIIT wasn’t good for? Building muscle. That’s why a mix of HIIT 

and strength training may offer the most benefits, as muscle mass tends to 

decline with aging, Nair noted.

"If people have to pick one exercise, I would recommend high-intensity interval 

training,” ("senior study author Sreekumaran Nair), said in the release, “but I 

think it would be more beneficial if they could do 3-4 days of interval training 

and then a couple days of strength training.”"

CRIMINAL MINDS

*Crime Number 2: Johnny's story was completed yesterday but not the memory 

of him in my mind. 

I'm still wondering what the status is of the event surrounding my dropped 

billfold in the parking lot of the Verizon store in Wooster? If you don't remember

what I said I'll tell you. I dropped my billfold in the parking lot of the Verizon 

store in Wooster. The unsubs ("UNknown SUBjects") took my billfold and charged 

gas on my credit card 3 times in Wooster and 1 time in Barberton for an average 

of about $60 each time. I've talked to the Wooster Police and fraud department 

of my bank. If I have time, I'll phone each of them Monday.

*Evil Number 1:  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."

5:09 AM 3/11/2017 EST. I typed a rough draft of what I want to say so far to the 

help I, hopefully, can get in Chicago for those two young people. The are 

eternally grateful to me for trying to help them and that pushes me to move 

on even stronger in my ability to help them.

*Crime Number 3: "Aron the Scammer." "I didn't tell him that it was bogus and 

would be on hold forever...." 

So, my plan was to keep lying to "Aron the Scammer" that the check was still 

being checked out and that I would send the Moneygram to Warsaw, Poland 

when the check cleared. I had contacted the U. S. government agency that dealt

with international frauds and scams by email but I had received no reply as yet.

"As thousands of Native Americans brought the Dakota Access pipeline protests 

to the Trump International Hotel's front door on Friday, indigenous women were 

there, leading the way, just as they have been for generations.

The Native Nations Rise march in Washington, D.C., is a continuation of a 

year-long battle between the Standing Rock Sioux and environmentalists against 

the government and pipeline corporations. Protesters held signs including,

"Honor Our Treaties," "Water is Life," "Stand With Standing Rock" — and 

"Indigenous Women Rise."

Indigenous women across the U.S. have pushed boundaries and served as 

guiding voices in struggles for land rights, cultural restoration and 

environmental justice – often quietly, in service of their own communities......"
