06/13/24 Thursday 1:10 P.M.  I chatted with a cold weather friend who is hot.  I will now shut down the HP laptop computer.  I will eat a yogurt.  I will then go to bed.  Remember, it is a relatively short summer here.  Do not forget about the ants and the grasshopper in Asops fables.  One should keep busy in the warmer weather to get ready to survive another long cold winter, particularly with El Nino ending.  Frequently in the summer, one can find winter clothes on sale cheaply as clearance items on the internet.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 11:55 A.M.  Hot summer coming El Niño is dead. Here’s what to expect in the coming months | CNN

I will now go outside again.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 11:40 A.M.  Pictures of the new pedestal fan here.  I also moved the bent oak chair on the left side of the teak dining table sideways, so it can be used both at the teak dining table and the white end table with the Dell 17.3 inch laptop.

06/13/24 Thursday 10:35 A.M.  I went out to www.cvs.com on Greenwich Avenue.  I paid a dollar in quarters to park.  I picked up a prescription.  I bought the black 16 inch pedestal fan with discount coupons for $34.34 total down from $40.  It was the last one.  I then returned home.  I assembled the fan.  I then installed it in front of the telephone table at the apartment entrance to blow the portable air conditioner air around.  I will now throw out its box, and I will drink a instant coffee.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 8:55 A.M.  I will now go downtown again.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 8:55 A.M.  After the last note, I went to www.mcdonalds.com on West Putnam Avenue, and I got two McGriddle breakfast sandwiches for $6.44 total.  I then sat out in front of the Senior and the Arts Center, and I ate my breakfast sandwiches.  I then used the bathroom at www.starbucks.com .  I got a medium blond coffee with Splenda sweetener and almond milk off my Starbucks card, and I drank it in front of the Senior and the Arts center.  I then sat inside briefly at Starbucks.  I then went to www.cvs.com on Greenwich Avenue, and I sat out in the park across the street.  I toured the store, when it opened, and I used the bathroom there.  They still have one pedestal fan there for about $60.  I then sat out some more in the park across the street.  I then returned home.  I sat outside.  The building fire alarm went off.  I checked to see if any apartment fire light were on, but none were on.  I then called 911 off my Verizon line, and the fire department was already here, I guess for a non emergency call with four fire trucks.  I then sat outside some more.  I chatted with a friend.  I filed this report.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 4:40 A.M.  When I went to the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut from 1965 to 1968, one of my friends from Katonah, New York after he graduated dropped out of Utica College after his freshman year.  He then rented an apartment off Harvard Square with the future Queen of Jordan.  He also had a commune in St. Johnsbury, Vermont where he restored liberty hatch covers into coffee tables.  He bought a big truck, and he would drive up to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick where he would buy antiques cheaply.  He would drive them all the way out to the west coast in California which does not have many antiques, and he would sell them for four or five times as much.  His family also had a house in Laguna Beach besides a pent house at Madison Avenue and East 67th Street and another house in Ireland.  Once his mother asked me to get a generator for the house in Ireland, which I did not know how to do, but when I visited Laguna Beach a number of times from 1978 to 1980, they were building twin nuclear reactors at Dana Point nearby which have since been decommissioned.  On the last trip, I met up with the head lawyer for Combustion Engineering in Montecito, so I thought they might have been working on those reactors too.  My friend's father was the treasurer of Wolfson Construction that built the Pan Am building in Manhattan, I-684, and worked on Hoover Dam.  I do know his parents had also lived in China. The last I heard from him, he was living in a condo at Mar Largo in Palm Beach, Florida and doing business deals in South America.  I know he had the Road House bar out on Nantucket and lived with Jimmy Buffett in Key West too.  He knew lots of people, which I never did.  The internet says he passed away a number of years ago in West Palm Beach, so he is no longer a contact.  He was the only Taft classmate that ever called me up.  I did receive email twice from a mutual Taft classmate, but he also passed away.  So much for prep school contacts.  The little Cape Cod cottage in Katonah is still across the street from Martha Stewart's estate.  Maybe a member of his family still own it.  Wolfson Construction also owned the salvage company Merritt, Chapman, and Scott that has the salvage rights on the H.M.S. Republic that sank in 400 feet of water off of Nantucket in 1915 with a billion dollars in gold by today's standards which was never recovered.  The gold was supposed to be for Italian earthquake relief.  Maybe with the higher price of gold, it is now worth more.  Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute probably has looked into to no avail though.

I will now go outside again.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 3:40 A.M.  I will now go outside and drink a instant coffee.  With shopping on the internet, if one knows where to look, there are more cheap furniture alternatives than the Greenwich Hospital Thrift shop, but one never knows what one will find there.  It depends on what the rich people get rid of.  CIO

06/13/24 Thursday 3:40 A.M.  For a more stable end table on the left side of the Samsung television, I ordered Wade Logan® Camea End Table & Reviews | Wayfair for $27.64 total.

06/13/24 Thursday 3:00 A.M.  From the left side of the Samsung television, I moved the white end table to the right side of the saddle color faux leather chair.  I moved the Dell 17.3 inch laptop from the left side of the teak dining table to the white end table.  From there, I moved the round end table to the left side of the Queen Anne chair with the green column lamp and internet radios on it.  From there I moved the folding oak TV table to the left side of the Samsung television with the Dell 17.3 inch laptop on it.  I also moved the two line AT&T telephone from the right desk drawer to the right side of the desk.  Thus two people can eat at the teak dining table, and behind it the Dell 17.3 laptop can be used with the left chair turned around.

06/13/24 Thursday 1:35 A.M.   I put a spinach wrap on a dinner plate.  I covered it on one side with Hellmann's mayonnaise.  I then alternated it with six deli slices of ham with six slices of white American cheese, and I rolled it up, and I cut it in half.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Fresca with three ounces of grapefruit juice and a 15 ounce can of corn with Smart Balance spread.  The slices of deli ham I am using are very paper thin, but the cheese is just as thin, so it is basically a ham and cheese wrap.  I will now rest a bit.  CIO

05/27/24 Monday 6:55 P.M.  While at www.lakeforest.edu , I failed Dr. Shockley's course twice in Quantum mechanics - Wikipedia because I argued the therom was wrong.  I also failed Professor Hanke's course in recent American History, but I got three credits to graduate in 1972 by getting credit for an Independent studies course in COBOL programming for the work that I did at Polaroid that summer on an IBM 360.  I recall writing a spread sheet.  I left the course material including the IBM manuals at Lake Forest College, so maybe somebody out there learned from them.  Briefly in the fall of 1972 after graduating I lived next to a 40 story IBM building in downtown Chicago.  Nearby were fifty red cross ambulances, the Merchandise Mart, and the Madina temple.  Briefly after that I moved to 31 East Elm Street, before driving back east in a used Mercedes Diesel sedan that I had purchased.  Although Polaroid in its day leased millions of dollars of IBM equipment, I never was able to get a job with IBM, because I guess I was not advanced enough with three months of COBOL programming experience.  I recall when I was finishing up working on the spread sheet program, I met three college students whom lived on Beacon Hill, and they gave me a stimulant, and I went home, and I finished writing the program over night, and to everyone's surprise it worked just fine on the IBM 360.  I was so tired I hitch hiked down to Martha's Vineyard, and I went out to Edgartown, and I took the ferry out to Chappaquiddick, and I camped out on the Fourth of July weekend for two or three days, and then I returned back to the Boston area.  In the bad weather camping on the beach, there were Jeep tracks around my camp site, so I was lucky I was not run over by an off road vehicle.

05/27/24 Monday 5:45 A.M.   I will now go downtown and hang out on Green Witch Avenue.  The Jim Fixx Memorial Day marathon starts off this morning at the Veterans monument on Greenwich Avenue, so it will be quite crowded, and the street will be closed.  Back out on www.nantucket.net when I used to help serve 250 meals a day, I used to job ten miles out to the beach between the lunch shift and the dinner shift.  I could only afford Adidas Country sneakers which were white with three green strips, which means up in Canada, one is a college student.  There is a Adidas warehouse the size of a football field next to York University in the suburbs of Toronto, so there are probably still some younger people up there whom are still fit.  I used to know a younger fellow who was once Donald Trump's caddy over in Westchester County, and he would jog from Rye to Stamford every morning where he was a physical fitness trainer.  In the last few months I did see somebody that looked a bit like him job by here, and the fellow that I saw was built like a brick shit house, but maybe it is just a younger relative of his.  CIO

05/27/24 Monday 4:45 A.M.  I moved the saddle color faux leather chair from the left of the Queen Anne chair to the left side of the Ethan Allen recliner with the cranberry ottoman in front of it.  From there I moved the Harvard chair to the apartment entrance on the right side of the black piano bench.  From there I moved the red leather Chesterfield chair to the left of the Queen Anne chair.  That way the newer furniture is more prominently displayed.  With the Harvard chair next to the Panasonic two line telephone, I might have a smarter conversation some day.  I chatted with Ronald Reagan's valet when he used to be an interior decorator on Greenwich Avenue, and he told me one of his Greenwich clients had him move the furniture every day.  Also at a pub behind the Natural History Museum in Manhattan, I once met a interior decorator from the Harvard school of design who decorated the Kennedy School of Public Affairs in South Boston.  He was the son of the Austria consulate to the United Nations, and from Palm Beach, Florida, Steubenville, Ohio where his family owned Steuben Glass and Vienna, Austria.  I do not know what they teach them at the Harvard School of Design, but I recall in spring of 1977, I slept on a stone bench at the Corbusier School of Design at Harvard, so maybe something rubbed off on me.

05/25/24 Saturday 9:35 A.M.  I went downtown to the Board of Education Veterans monument bench.  The summer flowers that replaced the tulips look nice.  I sat out for a long time.  I used the bathroom at www.starbucks.com .  I then drove to www.cvs.com on Greenwich Avenue.  I sat for a long time in the Junior Chamber of Commerce Park.  I toured CVS, when it opened.  They are now locking up the bathroom, because some of the local youth mess it up.  I then sat out some more.  I chatted with a friend who told me high tide is around noon, when it is good for fishing.  I then drove back down to the Board of Education Veterans monument bench, and I sat out some more.  I used the bathroom at Starbucks again.  I checked out Zen Stationary down the street, but they are out of "Line-Em-Up" scratch cards.  I then sat out some more.  One of the maintenance volunteers for Greenwich Green and Clean told me the Jim Fixx marathon is on Monday.  They have three port-o-potties at the Greenwich Common, but at the moment, they are locked up.  I then went to the Acme grocery store at 160 West Putnam Avenue.  They have packages of Oscar Meyer hotdogs there on sale for $3.99.  I bought six 16 ounce cans of Dole Mandarin oranges for $2.39 each and a 42 ounce Smart Balance spread for $9.79 for $24.13 total.  I then returned home.  I put away the groceries.  I set both portable air conditioners for 75 degrees Fahrenheit.  I went outside, and I put the grey bag back in the car.  I drank a decaf instant coffee outside.  I was told that Senior Citizens can go to the town party today down by the harbor at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park for $85, but they might have already had a lottery for it.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

05/25/24 Saturday 3:05 A.M.  I put a spinach wrap on a dinner plate.  I covered it on one side with Hellmann's mayonnaise.  I then alternated it with six deli slices of Virginia ham with three deli slices of Swiss cheese and three deli slices of white American cheese, and I rolled it up, and I cut it in half.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Fresca with two ounces of grapefruit juice and a 15 ounce can of green beans with Smart Balance spread.  The slices of deli ham I am using are very paper thin, but the cheese is just as thin, so it is basically a ham and cheese wrap.  Despite the last eight months of reorganizing my apartment, it did not come from my interior decorating skill but help from three relatives and a lot of trial and error on my part.  When I lived in Florence, Italy in the winter of 1972 near the Medici Palace, the Medici Palace did not have any furniture just some art work.  My simple tiny room was at the Pensione Adria on a third floor inside court yard, so one could not hear the traffic, when sleeping all day.  It was about 12 feet by eight feet with a bed and a bureau and that was about it.  Since it was across from the kitchen, I could smell the food cooking, but I did not do any cooking myself.  I just walked around Florence, Italy at night.  They do not eat dinner there like in Spain until 10 P.M., but I could afford a good meal.  However, I did not eat too much, since I weighed about 130 pounds.  CIO

05/24/24 Friday 11:10 P.M.  One of the Polaroid connections with Manhattan is that Polaroid use to employ a lot of blind people assembling film packs in Boston.  Thus Polaroid gave money to the Lighthouse for the Blind in the Chelsea area of Manhattan.  The Lighthouse for the Blind use to donate German Shepard puppies for a year to be raised, before they were trained as seeing eye dogs.  Vivian Simmons West had the best of breed in German Shepards out at the Long Island dog show.  When I went to Frankfort, Germany in December 1980 for three days, I stayed at the Y.M.C.A. there with two German Shepards.  When my family lived at the Patterson farm in New Canaan, we had a German Shepard dog that I trained.  When I stayed in Key West in the winter of 1978 with John Bolton at the Casa Marina Hotel, there were two hundred stray Hemingway cats with six toes in the hotel.  K-9 Security was always trying to find us, but the two hundred stray cats threw them off the scent.  The current President also has one or two German Shepards.  In Manhattan from December 1980 to February 1982, when I stayed at 315 West 74th Street, I walked Vivian West's granddaughter's white German Shepard in that period.  Possibly the way Oppenheimer got in charge of the Manhattan project is that his family lived at West 75th Street and Riverside Drive and Bernard Baruch Bernard Baruch - Wikipedia who was Franklin Roosevelt's best friend lived at West 74th Street and Riverside Drive, so maybe that is the connection.  Franklin Roosevelt used to stay at Bernard Baruch's plantation in South Carolina frequently.

05/23/24 Thursday 12:15 A.M.  New York City has lots of hospitals but not many grocery stores.  When I lived at 315 West 74th Street, there was a Gristedes on West 72nd Street and a Korean produce market and a Polish bakery.  Nearby on Broadway there was Zabars and Fairway groceries, so if one had money, one could shop conveniently, but one would have to walk all the way through Central Park to hang out in Midtown Manhattan.  There was bus service down Riverside Drive east on West 72nd Street and down Broadway and west on Central Park South and down Fifth Avenue to Greenwich Village which was more peaceful and back uptown on Broadway.  Broadway is an old Dutch cow path.  In my day, the apartment at 315 West 74th Street was owned by the Van Duzen Dutch family whom are original settlers in New Amsterdam.  Today there are 350,000 members of the Van Duzen family in America.  Even General Westmoreland in Greenville, South Carolina had a wife from the Van Duzen family.  The Dutch tend to be a bit tall, so I guess some of them end up in the military, when they are not planting tulips.  The apartment building at 315 West 74th Street was a Sandford White building with brick work like the Senior and the Arts building here in Greenwich.  At one time the exile King of France Louie Phillip even lived in that neighborhood.  On West 79th Street and the Hudson River, there is a large marina where the Forbes kept their yacht when it was not down at Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale.  However, it can be very cold in that neighborhood with the wind out of the Northwest in the Winter, and there is a lot of automobile pollution from the West Side Highway bringing people from the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan from New Jersey.  My friend who had the apartment besides another place at the Carnegie Tower on the East Side was the head of word processing in Cyrus Vance's law firm after he was Secretary of State.  Her ex-husband was a software engineer in the State Department in Libya, Thailand, and Saudi Arabia.  They both went to Brown University.  The mother out in Plandome Manor, Long Island had a mother who was part of the Kaiser of Germany's consulate to Manhattan before World War I.  She never went into Manhattan, although she lived next to the Port Washington line on the Long Island Railroad.  Since she was a neighbor of Mr. Grumman of Grumman aircraft, she did visit every five star hotel in the World. She had best of breed in the Long Island dog show of pugs, German shepards, and English cocker spaniels.  She might have been a friend of the Duke of Windsor, since he kept pugs too.  My friend was paid $50,000 to move out of 315 West 74th Street, when the building was developed.  I built the garage apartment over ten months at $2 an hour in Plandome Manor, so she could live there, but I guess she preferred to stay at the Carnegie Tower.  She could type 187 words a minute on the old word processors before computers.  I once visited the law office on Madison Avenue and 57th Street across the street from the IBM and AT&T buildings, and there was also an office there for British Boarding Schools there too.  There was also a private boys school on West 75th Street, where I could hear children playing frequently.  In that neighbor down towards Lincoln Center, they had about hundred American Red Cross Ambulances and behind Lincoln Center, a 24 hour McDonalds, and just north of Lincoln Center, the Nevada meat company with all sorts of exotic meat from around the world.  Cafe Des Artistes was nearby on Central Park West where former mayor of New York City John Lindsay lived.  The Aga Khan also has a place on Central Park West with a Rolls Royce near Columbus Circle.  ABC News was also nearby.  Roosevelt St. Lukes Hospital was just south of Lincoln Center, but up Columbia University, Presbyterian Hospital is bigger NewYork-Presbyterian | New York Hospital & Health System (nyp.org) .  Even Bill Clinton went there a quadruble by pass heart operation.  Helen Clay Frick's brother from Alpine, New Jersey was also a doctor there, so the Frick family probably gave them some money and maybe even the Rockefeller family since they paid for the Union Theological Seminary nearby.  CIO

This time of year, if one can afford to venture to www.nantucket.net , one might still be able to get a dishwashing and pot scrubbing job at LE LANGUEDOC INN & BISTRO, Nantucket - Menu, Prices & Restaurant Reviews - Tripadvisor .  They can give a dishwasher a simple basement apartment on Hussey Street in their guest house which is a six foot by ten foot room with a bunk bed and bureau and use of the bathroom upstairs in their guest house which today would probably be a $100 a week or more.  However, such Spartan conditions today might be considered pretty close to slave labor.  The wage in Massachusetts is only $13 an hour for dishwashers.  Still if one likes a hermit's life out in the middle of nowhere, it is an alternative.  I guess I have a PHD in dishwashing and pot scrubbing out on Nantucket after doing that for about five years all together out there and briefly in Boca Raton in Florida.

05/13/24 Monday 2:00 A.M.  I put a spinach wrap on a dinner plate.  I covered it on one side with Hellmann's mayonnaise.  I then alternated it with seven deli slices of Virginia ham with six deli slices of white American cheese, and I rolled it up, and I cut it in half.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of Fresca with three ounces of grapefruit juice and two 8.75 ounces cans of corn with Smart Balance spread.  The slices of deli ham I am using are very paper thin, but the cheese is just as thin, so it is basically a ham and cheese wrap.  I will now rest a bit.  CIO

05/13/24 Monday 12:45 A.M.  I watched off Amazon Prime, "Openheimmer, the Real Story."  I went outside twice, and once I drank a instant coffee.  I discovered the last place I lived in Manhattan at West 74th Street near Riverside Park was only a block away from the Openheimmer apartment building.  It is a famous Jewish neighborhood made famous by Stephan Birmingham's book, "Our Crowd."  Maybe I was walking the dogs around famous people.

I also moved the Microsoft Surface RT on the left side of the teak dining table to the back side of the table.  I then moved from the white end table behind the Ethan Allen recliner the Apple Macbook Pro to the left side of the teak dining table.  I then moved the second Dell 17.3 inch laptop from the left side of the Samsung television to the white end table behind the Ethan Allen recliner. 

Also Oppenheimer liked going to St. John's in the Virgin Islands where the Rock Resort Caneel Bay Plantation is.  Back around October 1973, I was sitting in a pub near the St. John ferry dock on St. Thomas and two British Naval officers sat behind me, and one of them looked like Prince Charles.  When I went to St. John's, I applied for a job at the Caneel Bay Plantation, but they were not very busy.  I also learned a former student at Lake Forest College runs the yacht club at St. John's and is also involved in the United States Olympic sailing team.  However, I am not supposed to tan anymore.

05/12/24 Sunday 8:05 A.M.  I channel surfed.  There was a program on the National Geographic channel about Florida Panthers.  Back around February 1979, when I was driving out of Key West back to Daytona, I pulled off the highway and slept with a friend in my old Subaru on west side of Boca Raton near the Polo fields.  At sunrise in the early morning mist, I woke up to see a big five foot high Florida Panther staring at us about fifty feet in front of us.  I guess it had never seen a Subaru before or some other curiosity that attracted its attention.  Howard Hughes designed the original Subaru base on aeronautics, and they first tested them at a track in Fort Lauderdale, when they came to this country.  Hughes Medical also had a medical building on Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale and lots of people wore TWA hats.  CIO

W. Bush inaugural for $5 from a Mrs. Garland there.  It is very large, and would be two difficult to hang again.  One of these day, I have to put my summer bedding on the bed, but it sometimes still gets cooler.

05/03/24 Friday 1:35 A.M.  I went outside again.

I moved the Harvard chair with the red cushion to in front of the center living room window to the left of the new portable air conditioner.  From there, I moved the red leather Chesterfield chair to the right of the black piano bench with the two line telephone on it on the right side of the kitchen entrance.  From there I moved the bent oak chair to in front of the laptops to the left of the Samsung television.  When the orange faux leather chair comes, I will put it where the Harvard chair is to the left of the portable air conditioner, and I will move the Harvard chair to in front of the laptops to the left of the Samsung television.  From there, I will put the bent oak chair with blue cushion to the left of the hallway entrance in front of the dark pine bookcase.  From there, I will move the folding mahogany chair to the left side of the bed in the bedroom.  The orange faux leather chair might come on Tuesday May 7, 2024 which is Victory in Europe Day including the Netherlands Dutch House of Orange.  I once knew somebody from New Hope, Pennsylvania with a nice horse farm where all of the antique shops are, and he claimed to be a Knight of the House of Orange.  He also kept his first tiny apartment in Manhattan near the old Whitney Museum.  Although he was from Mississippi having read the local press in Decatur, Alabama; I knew the Astor family from Manhattan also used to winter vacation on a plantation in Mississippi, and I read around 1958, when one of the Astors died, his relative inherited a big chunk of Manhattan.  Also Elvis was from that area of the country.
