If one looks at http://www.royal.gov.uk/ , one can see how members of the British Royal family manage to stay thin.  I guess my half Dutch genes are similar to German genes, so I genetically am fatter, although I do not think I eat that much food.  Possibly sitting in front of the computer all of the time leads to a lack of exercise.  If I tried swimming at 238 pounds, I am afraid I might sink like a stone.  I have been walking quite a bit since I got back from Kennebunkport, Maine.  However, after 10 PM at night on Greenwich Avenue, Starbucks and CVS on Greenwich Avenue are closed, so there is no place to go to the bathroom, which I might frequently need.  I guess one could walk into one of the local restaurants or pubs, but I do not feel comfortable doing that.  Much the same until when Starbucks opens at 6 AM in the morning and CVS at 7 AM.  It is the nature of getting older, one has to go to the bathroom more frequently.  That is also why I do not drink liquids when I go out of my apartment.  The solitude on a night schedule is what I am most used to.  One could always stop by the nearby all night CVS to see if anything is happening there, but mostly I see people in a rush there.  At age 65, one does not go to discos at 2:30 AM in the morning to try to stay in shape.  There are probably still flight personnel that stay up all night in the area and return on their early morning flights to where ever they flew in from.  Well, it is awake time in the morning in Europe, but not here yet.  CIO

09/29/15 Tuesday 1:55 A.M.  I ate a bag of microwave popcorn.  It is quite the norm here for nobody to heard talking in public.  Thus one is left trying to figure out whom speaks English and what dialects, and whom is from other parts of the world that is not familiar with English.  We are a large international community here, so the limited few people that speak English are left trying to figure out whom the other people might be that have settled into our suburban community close to New York City.  We have so many ethnic varieties, it can be all quite confusing.  Thus having lived here since around June 1962, I am used to the various ways of the local individuals whom tend to be very reserved.  We read about a tiny few people in the local paper, but there is a far larger group that makes up the community, and since they can afford to live here, they are obviously busy with other endeavors that are not noticed.  From my perspective, there are a lot of people whom live here that are involved in the financial markets, but that is part of my focus, and may not be the reality.  We also always have a large group of people visiting and traveling through the community all of the time, so it can be hard to figure out whom lives here, and whom is just a casual visitor.  Also a lot of the residents tend to be private, so they are not conspicuous downtown in the more public areas.  Half the town of Greenwich, Connecticut is supposed to be under 16 years of age, so that younger group keeps the rest of the population busy.  Of course a lot of people look like other people whom are better known, so that can even lead to more confusion.  CIO

09/29/15 Tuesday 12:30 A.M.  I think today is Michaelmas, where it is legal to steal a horse in Scotland.  I ate a blueberry muffin.  I watch the last episode 32 of "America's Book of Secrets".  What was strange about Greenwich Avenue this past evening, is that the usual group of pub crawlers were not out watching Monday Night Football, so something else must be keeping them busy.  Perhaps, there is some sort of new activity on the internet that I do not know about.  I am just maintaining my simple internet routines maintaining my vintage computer equipment network setup.  Since nobody ever communicates outside a few family members and friends, there does not seem to be very much going on in the world in general, particularly if one does not watch too much television.  The United States of America is a fairly large country with about 340 million people, so being near the largest metropolitan area, we always see a few visitors traveling around our simple rural community.  I think we also get a few curious international visitors, particularly during the warmer months.  Alas winter will be back with us in a couple of months, so we will have even more time to be stuck inside.  I do not have the option of spending the winter in warmer areas, since that is costly and would disrupt my normal routine.  From what I can tell, it does not seem like as many people are awake in this area on a night schedule, but it might be still the same usual busy activity in nearby Manhattan at night.  We have a mild drought in this area, so the rain we are suppose to get the next couple of days is needed.  CIO

I also got my Pirelli $60 new tire rebate, but when I went by the www.chase.com bank at Deerfield Place, it was a Visa Gift card that I have to activate, and I can not deposit it.  I then went downtown, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  It was pretty quiet downtown.  I stopped by the Senior and the Arts Center, and I used the bathroom.  I stopped by Zen Stationary, and I bought an Ace's High scratch card for a dollar, but I lost.  I chatted with a couple of locals.  I toured the www.apple.com store.  I stopped by www.cvs.com and I picked up a prescription.  After my walk, I sat out for a while enjoying the day.  I then went by the A&P Fresh.  They are installing new high speed LAN cables for the new Alberstons store.  I bought a four pack of blueberry muffins for $3.50 and a Stouffer's 19 ounce meat lasagna for $3 less 45 cent can return for $6.05 total.  I then returned back to Chez Michael's.  I has a message from the Greenwich Housing Authority representative, and I called them back and left a message.  For some reason my AT&T two line answering system quit working, so I turned on the Panasonic two line answering system in the kitchen.  CIO

09/20/15 Sunday 7:40 P.M.  I chatted with a friend and a relative.  I was told we now have a royal Prince that has a house in Greenwich, but he is well known so he can do his own public relations.  The royal Prince is not from a European country, but more than likely he can also afford a house in Europe. In Greenwich, we try to protect the privacy of some of our celebrity residents, but with so many people from nearby New York City visiting all of the time, one never really knows what is going on.  It does help to work the grape vine.  So little happens in the United States of America anymore, there are not too many people interested in our public media.  I guess the bored people in the hinterlands are looking for something to amuse themselves, while they wait to harvest the corn.  CIO

09/07/15 Monday 11:15 A.M.  I sat outside behind the family house enjoying the view.  The relative that departed today uses http://www.apple.com/ devices.  Apparently the relative has a high speed internet connection, and when Apple releases a device, he buys it in the first two or three seconds before it sells out, and then he resells it on Ebay for three or four times the price.  Of course he has to wait until he takes delivery before he reships it.  I guess the younger generation are quicker and more adept on the internet.  I have a lot of computer parts http://scott-mike.com/computer.htm , however I think the postage to sell them would be my profit over expenses.  The only thing someone has tried to buy from me over the internet are Christmas Time lemon and orange Altoids that I happened to have.  There are other things in Greenwich, Connecticut and Kennebunkport like expensive real estate, but the younger generation probably can not afford it.  My friends from Sea Island, Georgia returned to Manhattan yesterday for their winter adventures.  Of course my other relative is still there keeping an eye on the big city.  That relative lives near the Apple store on West 14th street.  My long time friend on Island has moved with his family to Northern Delaware horse country for a quieter relaxing life in retirement.  My other friends on Long Island where I built the garage apartment are moving to Summit, New Jersey after close to a hundred years on Long Island.  I guess the grass is always greener.  I have tried networking with a few people on the internet, but the Microsoft people are more focused on India as opposed to New Yorkers.  I guess they are afraid of the huge http://www.ibm.com/ presence in the New York metropolitan area which I never seem to notice.  My viewpoint from Steamboat Road pier watching the Thomas Watson, Victor Borge, and Donald Trump homes has been replaced by a lot of new money hedge fund people in the area.  I suppose there is a bit of Boston money in Kennebunkport, Maine.  Well time for bottom fishing http://scott-mike.com/bf.htm .  CIO

09/01/15 Tuesday 5:55 P.M.  We went for a drive along the entire length of the Kennebunk Beach and back.  We chatted with a relative out walking.  We then drove along the Kennebunkport waterfront and back.  I had a message from Swedish Import, and I told them to go ahead and repair the rear springs on the 2005 Volvo XC70 for about a $500 cost.  CIO

09/01/15 Tuesday 4:15 P.M.  I woke up at 3:50 P.M..  Swedish Imports called up.  They told me, they would not be able to fix the driver's side indoor handle without replacing the entire door panel.  Instead they were able to repair it with Crazy Glue.  However, there is another problem with the Volvo wagon.  The left rear spring is broken, so they are checking about getting the part and will call me tomorrow about the cost of the repair.  I could occasionally hear a noise from that location, so I guess that was the problem.  We are making some spaghetti sauce for dinner.  CIO

09/01/15Tuesday 3:05 P.M.  I drove with another relative with another car, and we dropped my Volvo wagon off at http://www.swedish-imports.com/ to get the driver's side indoor latch repaired.  They will call me up, when they know more.  We then went to Hannaford's and got groceries.  We then went by the Kennebunkport post office.  We then returned to my relatives' house, and put away the groceries.  I will now take a nap.  CIO

09/01/15 Tuesday 9:40 A.M.  The front hose leaks just before its threads connect to the watering spray attachment.  It does not help it to tighten anymore.  Thus one had to leave the front hose turned off, when not in use.  I watered the front flowers, and the flowers in the rear flower box, and the flowers on the rear deck.  I brought in the garbage can and blue recycle bin from the street.  I started a load of wash.  CIO
