04/23/17 Sunday 10:30 P.M.  I went outside, and I chatted with neighbors.  What most people do not seem to realize up north is that the Florida flag https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Florida has changed a few times over the years.  CIO

04/23/17 Sunday 9:40 P.M.  When I was visiting south Florida in the winter of 1977, my 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne was towed from the Swimming Hall of Fame in Fort Lauderdale for two many parking tickets.  Thus on two or three trips down to Key West, I hitchhiked the Florida Keys highways and toll road from Fort Lauderdale.  Once going north midway in the Florida Keys, I found an www.af.mil NORAD flight suit in the bushes along the highway.  It was for a colonel with the SAC and NORAD patches.  It was comfortable to wear, so I started wearing it, although I had long blond hair down to my waist.  I even once did my laundry in it at the entrance to Homestead Air Force base.  Nobody in Key West seemed to mind me wearing it.  However, when I was wearing it in Nantucket that summer of 1977, Bob Mulleran a skier from Fairfield whose father worked for www.exxon.com wanted it, so I gave it to him.  Rob was on of Ed Grennon's friends from Stowe, Vermont, so possibly Ed Grennon ended up with it.  Basically a lot of poor people go to Army Navy stores and thrift shops, so more than likely a lot of spare uniforms are worn by them.  When a friend of mine from Jay Peak, Vermont first went to Germany, I gave him a www.army.mil major's wool jacket that I had bought at the Greenwich Hospital Thrift shop.  While at www.lfc.edu a lot of the students used to wear military clothes, but the college was next to Great Lakes Naval Station and Ford Sheridan, so possibly they were wearing their uniforms.  One of the few people I ever saw wearing a military uniform in Manhattan was Al Haig, when he was parking his old black Rambler on the north side of the FDR Post Office building on Third Avenue by P.J. Clarks.  Once when I flew out of Washington D.C. on a Air Florida jet to Westchester airport, everone on the jet was wearing senior grade military uniforms, but around here, one rarely sees anyone wearing military uniforms except at graduation at www.usma.mil .  Most people just blend in blue jeans and flannel shirts or polo shirts and shorts in the summer.  Of course some of the older people sometime wear sports jackets on week days to look more professional.  CIO

04/23/17 Sunday 9:20 P.M.  I woke up at 8:30 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.  I went outside, and I chatted with a neighbor.  CIO

04/23/17 Sunday 9:15 A.M.  I rested bit more.  I drank a 12 ounce glass of 50% punch and 50% diet Fresca.  I never drank too much alcohol in the past, and I completely gave it up around 1990.  I obviously could never afford to drink it like the rich people.  I went outside briefly.  I will make my bed again.  I will then go downtown to see if the Indians left any wooden nickels around.  CIO

04/23/17 Sunday 7:40 A.M.  I rested a bit.  I went through http://scott-mike.com/bf.htm .  I will now eat some Cheez-it crackers, and then I will rest some more.  CIO

04/23/17 Sunday 2:15 A.M.  Before I started using personal computers in August 1989, I used to frequently drive into Manhattan at night and network with night people in Manhattan.  One could drive into Manhattan on I-95 West to the Cross Bronx Expressway, and then get off and take the Willis Avenue bridge into Manhattan, so one did not have to pay the toll on the Triboro Bridge.   On that short cut, there is also a 24 hour car wash and other gasoline stations.  I also used to drive over to a pub next to a bowling alley in White Plains and network with various night people.  There are two major hospitals in White Plains and about seven five star hotels, so there are more night people over there working the grave yard shift.  I guess they also have to clean up the mega malls at night.  Nearby Greenwich on Anderson Hill Road, there is the http://www.doralarrowwood.com/ and just west of it is the https://www.purchase.edu/ college campus.  Like all college campuses, some of their students are always moving around this area at all hours of the day.  Just north of that is the http://www.whiteplainsairport.com/ which brings a lot of visitors into this area including a lot of people from Atlanta on Delta airlines.  I have a feeling some of the Atlanta people might have http://www.gatech.edu/ connections, and they might be working their different agenda in this area.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO

04/23/17 Sunday 1:50 A.M.   Back in the 1950s, when my family used to drive from Decatur, Alabama to Holland, Michigan in the summer, we would stop by and visit my paternal grandparents in Champaign, Illinois.  Also a couple of times, we visited some of my paternal grandmother's Gard family relatives in down state Illinois on the farm in Robinson, Illinois, where my grandfather Scott owned farm property.  Some of my younger distant cousins liked playing with baby wolf cubs in the woods, and we once had a fight in the chicken coop throwing chickens at each other.  My mother's relatives in Holland, Michigan were very religious, but even in August it is cold there.  In the family cottage on Lake Michigan, we would have to use a kerosene stove on cold August mornings, since the cottage was not insulated or heated.  It did have hot water though.  Thus not only being exposed to the Gulf of Mexico in 1952 to 1954 in Pensacola, Florida, and the Tennessee River in Decatur, Alabama, and Lake Michigan in Holland, Michigan, I had a bit of waterfront experience before moving to Greenwich in June 1962.  I was never a good swimmer though, and I only knew how to sail a sun fish or row a wooden row boat.  I guess www.nantucket.net was the most dangerous rough waterfront that I ever covered.  Steamboat Road has become so exclusive that I don't go down there anymore very much.  The old white Barney and Jenkins apartment building just north of the Indian Harbor Yacht Club is chained off and deserted.  They are going to tear it down soon and build a new 8 unit condo complex.  CIO

04/22/17 Saturday 6:55 A.M.  I went outside briefly.  I ate six slices of Stop and Shop deli honey ham and three slices of Stop and Shop deli Swiss cheese and six ounces of pasta salad and one kosher dill spear and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I will now shut down the primary work computer, and I will go to bed.  CIO

04/22/17 Saturday 1:45 A.M.   I went outside briefly.  It is pretty quiet around here at night and in the early morning hours.  The tulips are just about to bloom downtown on Greenwich Avenue at the veterans monument.  I think they are red this year by the couple that have bloomed.  http://www.tuliptime.com/ and http://www.cityofholland.com/ .  Although my mother's Boven family http://www.hollandhospital.org/birth-center/boven-birth-center.aspx are from Holland, Michigan, I do not think I have visited there since 1962, when I moved here.  The local Dutch here do not pay any attention to me.  Holland, Michigan has 60 million tulips http://www.dutchvillage.com/ .  I don't know that much about tulips, but the last time I planted any was when I finished garage apartment at 21 Circle Drive at Plandome Manor, Long Island in February 1983.  I think one is suppose to plant tulips in the fall.  Tulips originally came to the Netherlands from Iran.  During once Dutch financial crisis, the Dutch used tulip bulbs for money.  CIO

04/22/17 Saturday 1:25 A.M.  I heated and ate two 3 ounce Perdue chicken cutlets along with a baked potato with Smart Balance spread and six ounces of pasta salad and a Kosher dill pickle spear and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  CIO

04/04/17 Tuesday 5:35 A.M.  I went outside again.  The last time I went to Manhattan was about nine years ago for a Microsoft conference.  On the way out at Grand Central Station, I saw someone that looked like Prince Charles and Prime Minister Gordon Brown looking at the newly remodeled Grand Central Station with a couple thousand men that looked like Prince Andrew.  The pictures that I took that day are here http://scott-mike.com/mls-030408/ .  Alas I did not think about taking a picture of Prince Charles, but the British flag was flying at the Waldorf Astoria.  I guess a lot of the famous royalty are pilots, so they can show up anywhere and anytime.  CIO

04/04/17 Tuesday 4:00 A.M.  I woke up at 3:30 A.M..  I went out briefly.  It is raining cats and dogs.  I ate breakfast of Kashi cereal and milk, a toasted onion bagel with Smart Balance Spread, a glass of 50% punch and 50% cold filtered water, and a 12 ounce cup of 33% regular coffee and 67% decaffeinated coffee with Equal sweetener and milk and vitamins and supplements.  CIO

04/03/17 Monday 10:15 A.M.  I went downtown.  I sat out for a while downtown in front of the Senior Center.  It was not very busy.  Starbucks was not busy.  I stopped by Zen Stationary, and I bought an Ace's High scratch card for a dollar, and I lost.  I drove over to www.cvs.com , and I bought three twelve packs of 12 ounce cans of diet Fresca for $11 and $1.80 can deposit for $12.80 total.  I then bought two 12 ounce bags of Gold Emblem hazelnut coffee for $4.99 each, less a $7 bonus bucks coupon from the previous purchase for $2.98 total.  I chatted with somebody that had what looked like my old Swiss Alpine back pack that I had bought in the winter of 1972 in the Florence, Italy flea market, but it was just an www.llbean.com copy.  I sat outside for a while in the little park across from  CVS.  I then went by the Stop and Shop.  I bought four 16 ounce Marie Callender chicken pot pies for $2.50 each, a 16 ounce pack of Stop and Shop deli sliced Swiss cheese for $4.99, two quart jars of Mount Olive small Kosher dill pickles for $2 each, a 12 ounce generic honey for $2.50, and .45 bottle and can return for $21.13 total.  The Maria Callender chicken pot pies were marked as being on sale for $2.50, but that was last week, but they gave me the sale price.  I then returned home.  I chatted with neighbors.  I put away my groceries.  I brought up the Fresca with my little folding cart that I am keeping in the apartment for now.  I will now go back outside again.  CIO

04/03/17 Monday 6:40 A.M.  I went outside, and I threw out the garbage, and I chatted with neighbors.  I will now dress up warmly and go downtown observe the Monday morning rush, and then I will do some grocery shopping.  Life in the Slow Lane.  CIO

04/02/17 Sunday 11:35 P.M.  I went outside, and I chatted with a neighbor.  I will now shower and clean up.  It is pretty quiet here in the greater area of Southwestern Connecticut on the border with New Amsterdam.  There is a Dutch Reform church in Rye, New York and another one in Tarrytown, New York, so there might be some down state Dutch people in the area whom maintain a low profile as they compete with the English.  www.klm.com has an office nearby in White Plains, New York, so that would probably be the best place to look for any Dutch people left in the area.  The Rockefellers used to claim they were of Dutch descent and we know the Vanderbilts and Roosevelts are Dutch.  Of course that a tulip bulb won't even buy one a http://www.heineken.com/ .  I think http://www.usa.philips.com/ is a Dutch company, and it is supposed to be the world's largest electronics company.  It is very big in Asia.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO

03/31/17 Friday 12:25 P.M.  I went outside again, and I chatted with neighbors.  Sitting outside with my umbrella in the cold damp rainy weather recently has started to activate my Northern European genes which seem to be used to this weather.  The weather actually wakes me up a bit as opposed to just sitting inside in the warm apartment.  In watching Netflix over the recently years, I know it is cold, damp, and rainy in northern Europe, so I guess I have to get used to it.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I made my bed.  I will now shower and clean up.  I will then go out to my 1:30 P.M. appointment.  CIO

03/31/17 Friday 2:35 A.M.   Even though I was homeless in Fort Lauderdale, I figured out I might have some contacts.  My half sister had her deb party there in the 1950s.  The oldest condo on the beach is called the Illini for University of Illinois alumni.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wayne_Huizenga family had a cottage on Lake Michigan just two doors south of my grandmother Boven's cottage.  One of the Swimming Hall of Fame contractors was a Boven.  Bill Barthoamew's Yacht the "Black Hawk' was at the Bahia Mar as was my mother's boy friend's yacht.  Also the www.forbes.com yacht "The Highlander" was at Pier 66.  However during the cold winter down there, nobody was around except a few homeless street kids.  Wiley Middleton https://www.middletonplace.org/ built Port Everglades.  He also had been the first Cadillac dealer in Manhattan and had started General Motor Acceptance corporation, so he traveled around on GM buses driven by Grey Hound.  He always told me if I had nothing better to do, to try sell http://www.cadillac.com automobiles.  At the dinner hour, there were thousands of yellow or white Cadillacs or Lincoln Continentals moving around.  The Queen Elizabeth II used to show up at Port Everglades, and the Captain told me the only people that could afford the VIP suite were the Rockefellers or the Kennedys.  They would off load Rolls Royce and Bentley automobiles from England headed towards Palm Beach.  CIO

03/31/17 Friday 2:05 A.M.  I have a 1:30 P.M. appointment today.  I ate a 13 ounce Marie Callender sweet and sour chicken dinner with Smart Balance spread on the vegetables and 8 ounces of potato salad and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I will now go outside briefly.  When I go outside, I am smoking cigar cigarettes.  I hope to quit smoking again soon, when my doctor prescribes the 28 mg. Nicotine patch.  CIO

03/31/17 Friday 1:30 A.M.   I went outside briefly.  I mixed up two containers for 11 ounces each of Folger's decaffeinated coffee and 12 ounces each of Gold Emblem hazelnut coffee.  Folger was Benjamin Franklin's mother's family name from www.nantucket.net .  In the summer of 1977 and half the summer of 1978, I worked at the Gordon Folger Hotel on Nantucket as a $2.15 an hour pot scrubber next to a very hot cast iron stove.  They served meat loaf for dinner though.  The hotel was owned by the Bowman family from Quebec as I recall.  I would probably appear as the darkly tanned skinny person in the staff photos for those two summers, since I had been down homeless in Florida the previous two winters.  My work those two summers does not show up on my social security record, since I was constantly threatened down in Florida, I did not use my real social security number, but a slight variation there of.  Being threatened from what I know because I looked like the DEA agent from the beach in Fort Lauderdale lead me to sleeping in my 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne with the State Police parked around me on I-95, sleeping in the car at the tax free Indian reservation truck stop west of Fort Lauderdale, and camping out with my ditty bag and www.army.mil poncho around Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, and Key West.  Alas, I don't know if any of it was true, but it seemed to me that it was.  I quite frankly could not figure out why I would have any enemies, since I pretty much got along with everyone in Manhattan.  CIO

 I could not fill out my Connecticut Social Security Husky redetermination online, because my account is locked.  I thus filled out the paper work and documentation.  I went out to the central Greenwich Post Office, and I mailed it downtown.  I then sat out downtown watching not too much go on at the late hour.  I then went by Putnam Shell at 401 West Putnam  Avenue, and I bought $7 of self service premium V-Power gasoline for $3.439 a gallon for 2.036 gallons at odometer reading of 114873 miles for 24.4 miles driven since Thursday March 16, 2017 for 11.985 miles per gallon in local traffic.  I then by CVS at 644 West Putnam Avenue, and I bought two 15.7 ounce Nature Valley Honey Nut Clusters cereal for $3 each for $6 total.  I then returned home.  I sat outside for a while.  In the old days before 1990 before personal computer and the internet, I used to go over to White Plains, New York for some disco and networking activity.  Alas none of the people I ever met bothered to keep up with me.  I moved the recent paperwork from the bedroom desk to the white bureau left center drawer at the bedroom entrance.  Thus the bedroom desk is mostly cleared off.  CIO

03/30/17 Thursday 10:05 P.M.  When I sit outside on the west side of my building overlooking the baseball field, I can see large windows over at Putnam Green which look like they have large monitors with computer games running.

03/24/17 Friday 1:20 A.M.  Still a few bookings left http://www.balmoralcastle.com/availability.htm and http://www.balmoralcastle.com/acatalog/Whisky-Collection.html  .  Back in my www.lfc.edu days, a lot of students used to tell me the cheapest way to get to Europe was Icelandic airways, but one had to spend a night in Iceland.  CIO

03/24/17 Friday 1:05 A.M.  Well if one is cold, pot scrubbing next to hot cast iron stove is a very hot and sweaty job.  CIO

03/24/17 Friday 1:00 A.M.  I went outside, and I chatted with a neighbor.  www.nantucket.net is not that cheap.  I used to pay in 1977 $8 for a roast beef sandwich at the A&P deli.  I only got $50 though for a five gallon pale of opened sea scallops which cost a lot more.  The secret recipe for Portuguese bread is the same recipe as French bread, but the loaves are shaped differently.  One of the secret ingredients they used in the cooking at the Le Languedoc restaurant was Arrow Root.  The kept a supply of filet mignons in the cooler for a valued customer.  The Grennon family that were half owners of Le Languedoc restaurant also owned Sister Kate's bar in Stowe, Vermont, which was very popular with the après ski group of people.  A lot of the waiters at Le Languedoc restaurant were from the Stowe Ski patrol, and I was told in the winter it was minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit up on top of the mountain, so when I showed up out of Key West, they did not feel sorry for me feeling cold.  I once went to farm auction with Ed Grennon, and a hard working farmer only got 50 cents each for 8 foot by 5 inch fence poles, so money was short and limited in Vermont.  In 1977, an organic pizza was only $2 at www.dartmouth.edu .  I used to enjoy sitting in the comfortable easy chairs in the stacks at the Baker Library.  Dartmouth College has a scholarship program for Native Americans.  I once knew somebody from Norwalk named Richard that had gone to Dartmouth College, and he told me they had a program, where they gave a student $5 and sent them down to Manhattan for a week to survive, and they had to write a paper on the experience, when they got back.  I saw Richard when I was down in Key West in 1982, and I saw him once again at Cats Discothèque in Oslo, Norway in February 1983.  I recall also seeing at an obscure bar in Greenwich Village with a lot of other tall people.  He once visited our last house in Greenwich with a fellow classmate from the University of Houston, where had also gone to school.  Richard was about 6 foot 3 inches tall and looked like Mick Jagger.  I have never seen him besides that.  I guess some people do not hang out in public observing the world.  CIO

They also want me to take the 32 inch Westinghouse flat screen television out of the bathroom, so I do not electrocute myself.  I will store it on the bedroom desk maybe hooked up to Netflix.  About the fifth year, I was lying here in my living room on my slate blue foam rubber love seat, and lightning hit the room above me, and the bolt of lighting went right through me, but I was on the foam rubber sofa.  Two of my cordless telephone and part of my stereo system was knocked out.  However, I seem to have gotten better on electricity.  Also when I was homeless in Nantucket in the summer of 1975, I used to take naps on Benjamin Franklin's mother's grave in the old Quaker cemetery.  Her grave site had a monument in a Quaker cemetery which normally does not have headstones, so it too was always getting his by lightning.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 10:55 P.M.  I threw out about four hundred pounds more of stuff in five cart loads.  I threw out the two De Longhi oil filled radiators, two new Ricoh laser printers, a laptop stand, two bags of old parts from in front of the stereo system, two Kensington Control Panels and bags of old parts and cables from underneath the living room desk and the bedroom.  I also threw out two day back packs and a green canvas suitcase and two throw pillows.  I sat outside a number of times and chatted with neighbors.  I was told by the Greenwich Housing Authority maintenance man that HUD is cracking down on the local Greenwich Housing Authority.  I went downtown to the Stop and Shop.  I bought two Marie Callender 13 ounce Sweet and Sour chicken dinners for $2.50 each, two 13 ounce Marie Callender chicken Alfredo dinners for $2.50 each, a 46 ounce red skin potato salad for $4.69 and a six pack of Thomas New York Everything bagels $2.99 and .40 can return for $17.27 total.  I chatted with two guys from Georgia.  I sat downtown briefly watching the remains of Starbucks after they closed.  I returned home, and I put away my groceries.  I will now shower and clean up.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 6:50 P.M.  I ate a 13 ounce Marie Callender chicken Alfredo dinner with grated parmesan and Romano cheese and 8 ounces of potato salad and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I will now go outside briefly.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 6:10 P.M.  My social worker and the Greenwich Housing Authority maintenance man showed up at 4:45 P.M..  In two weeks, the Greenwich Housing Authority maintenance man is going to remove my two CRT TVs from the bedroom.  I have to empty the files cabinets, and he will also remove the Steel Case file cabinet from the bedroom.  He measured to make sure there is enough clearance.  My social worker said, I can only have one power strip or control panel or surge protector plugged into one outlet which I will have to work on sooner or later.  I also can not have the stereo speakers on top of the bookcase, so the left speakers will have to go on the floor, and the right speakers will have to go into the hallway bookcase and not on top of them.  I was also told that I should get rid of one of the kitchen microwave ovens.  I went outside to see my social worker off.  I chatted with two relatives.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 4:40 P.M.  I threw out about 700 pounds or six cart loads of old computer equipment from the bedroom desk.  That included five IBM and Lenovo ThinkCentres, two Acer 19 and 20 inch flat screen monitors, and a NEC 22 inch flat screen monitor.  I also threw out the old keyboards and mice and headsets and web cams and control panels an old speaker systems.  I saved the new AOC 22 inch flat screen monitor, and I put out the 20 inch flat screen TV on the bedroom desk.  Thus the bedroom desk is mostly cleared.  My social worker and a Greenwich Housing Authority worker are going to visit me at 4:45 P.M. to see about moving out the two big CRT televisions from the bedroom and possibly the file cabinets.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 2:25 P.M.  I went outside briefly.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I will now start throwing out more stuff.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 1:20 P.M.   I went outside briefly.  I chatted with a neighbor.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 1:05 P.M.  I went outside briefly, and I chatted with neighbors.  We now have to be more than 50 feet away from the building, when we smoke like a 100 feet or more.  I will try to quit smoking again, when I get the higher dosage patches.  I chatted with a relative.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 12:40 P.M.  I woke up at noon, when the building custodian checked my apartment to see if there was smoke.  I said not.  I was sitting outside, and I ran into the Greenwich Housing Authority Section 8 inspector.  She inspected my apartment again, and I failed.  She said I have to get rid of more stuff.  She also told us we can not smoke on the benches outside the door.  Thus we have to smoke further away from the building.  I also made my bed.  I will now eat breakfast.  I ate breakfast of Kashi cereal and milk, a toasted onion bagel with Smart Balance Spread, a glass of 50% punch and 50% cold filtered water, and a 12 ounce cup of 33% regular coffee and 67% decaffeinated coffee with Equal sweetener and milk and vitamins and supplements.  CIO

03/23/17 Thursday 2:10 A.M.  I first visited Key West with Brian Hibbs on Halloween in 1976.  It was all boarded up and totally deserted.  We had driven down from Fort Lauderdale, where I was homeless waiting for my unemployment checks from Daniel construction.  I hitchhiked down to Key West at the first of 1977, when my 1966 baby blue Chevrolet Biscayne four door sedan was towed and impounded at the Fort Lauderdale swimming hall of fame for too many parking tickets.  Initially I slept underneath the annex of the Episcopal Church which I think was called St. Lukes.  I also camped out in a palm grove across from the Catholic church.  I was somewhat tan having been in south Florida since the third week of September 1976.  Jimmy Eldert showed up in February 1976, and he put me up for a couple of days in a trailer next to the Boca Chica Naval station.  I can not will recall where else I might have slept.  I did hitchhike to Naples, Florida with Jim Eldert to visit his grandparents, but they were not there, so I washed dishes for a day at the Howard Johnson's there for a day for some money.  I left Key West around the second week in April 1976, when I got six months of unemployment checks at $87 for every week or about $2,400.  Rob Glore cashed my checks.  He had the craft shop across the street from the Key West post office.  I got my car out of the pound in Fort Lauderdale for about $200.  I drove down to Key West, and I picked Jimmy Eldert up, and we stopped by Fort Lauderdale again.  We then toured Disney World and St. Augustine.  We stopped by Jacksonville to see Hurley Haywood.  I then put Jim on an Eastern airline plane for about $250, so he could return to the University of New Hampshire.  I drove north and got my car fixed with shocks for about $400 at a Firestone garage in southern Georgia.  I toured Plains, Georgia.  I then drove north.  I stopped by Greenwich, and I got a U-Haul trailer, and I moved my belongings to barn in Norwich, Vermont for about $20 a month storage.  I returned to Nantucket.  I gave the car away in Nantucket to the Nantucket Hospital thrift shop along with most of my belonging in the car.  I opened scallops on the island, and I left for a Science convention in Boston and two weeks cleaning up Sister Kate's bar in Stowe, Vermont and to visit Jim at the University of New Hampshire, where we stayed at the Exeter, New Hampshire Inn for about a $100.  We toured Dartmouth College, and stayed at the Wilder Motel at White River Junction for about $40.  I hitchhiked back to Greenwich and then up to the University of New Hampshire for the Seabrook demonstration and then down to Williamsburg, Virginia, where I slept on the minister of the Presbyterian Church's front porch.  I toured the area and Jamestown too.  I then went back up north Greenwich and the University of New Hampshire and as far north as Bowden College and then a couple of days in Portland, Maine before returning to Nantucket for the season as a pot scrubber in various restaurants.

I returned to south Florida hitch hiking down in late November 1977.  I had moved my belongings out of Norwich, Vermont to a relative's house in the Philadelphia area.  I found work at Le Vielle Maison in Boca Raton for $2.15 an hour for several months and was camping out in a tent in a grove by the north side of the Boca Inlet.  After my three side trips to Paradise Island in the Bahamas, I returned to Key West where Jim Eldert had showed up.  I tried camping out in the palm grove across from the Catholic church.  I then met John Bolton who had a key to the abandoned Casa Marina Hotel construction project.  We stayed in the hotel and its annex for a couple of months, and another deserted building on the harbor briefly.  We tried going north in April 1978, when I got a $700 Income tax return.  We hitch hiked to Atlanta, and bought a few hundred dollars of camping gear, and stayed at a hotel across from the Fox theatre for about $60.  We took a Grey Hound to Ashville, North Carolina, and we tried hiking the Appalachian trail for four days camping out.  We left the trail when it snowed, and we camped out on the beach at Huntington Island and Hilton Head.  There were alligators around in Hilton head.  We hitch hiked back down to Key West with someone that gave us a ride the whole way.  Around the first of May, we hitch hiked as far north as Washington D.C., and we took the Amtrak to Stamford, and stayed with my relative in Greenwich for a couple of days before returning to Nantucket until around the middle of October 1978.  We bought a $150 Subaru wagon that I put a new clutch in, and we did our trip to the West Coast returning back to Key West in December 1978.  We drove north to Manhasset, Long Island for Christmas and also Greenwich.  We then returned south to Daytona where we stayed with John's sister at a motel on the beach.  We might have made a side trip to Key West for a day or two.  In August 1980, we left Port Washington, Long Island to drive across country, but we drove up through Canada and down to Key West before driving across country on Interstate 10.  In February 1982, when it was minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit in Manhattan, my roommate John's mother had me move out of her apartment.  She gave me a $100, so I flew down to Key West.  I stayed with Steve Bahl for a few days, and a couple of other people.  I was shipped back up north over a month because of a mistaken legal problem.  I then returned in April 1982 to Plandome Manor to build the garage apartment for the next 10 months at $2 an hour.  After the side trips to Florida, Washington D.C., and Oslo, Norway, I returned to Nantucket in April 1983.  I left Nantucket around Halloween 1983 driving down with a relative to Florida, and I returned to Nantucket two weeks later.  I finally left Nantucket at the end of November 1983, and I took the Amtrak from Manhattan to Toronto for two weeks, and then I was homeless in Manhattan for two different week periods and two different week Greenwich Hospital stays which determined that I was disabled.  I finally got my first apartment in Greenwich near Christmas time 1983, and I have been back here ever since.  CIO

03/21/17 Tuesday 1:40 A.M.   I finished watching the show.  I went outside for a while.  I pulled the Ethan Allen recliner forward about 15 inches.  Now if one pulls up the front part of the green slip cover, one can fully recline in it to relax or even sleep on it.  Thus I don't need a sofa.  The Ethan Allen recliner was $1250 new, and I bought it for $75 at the old Greenwich Hospital Thrift shop about five years ago.  Its originally cranberry upholstery is in mint condition, and I leave the green slip cover on it to preserve it,  when I am just watching internet television from it.  I will now eat a toasted bagel with Smart Balance spread and a 12 ounce glass of 50% punch and 50% diet Fresca.  Back in the old days from October 1973 to February 1975, when I used to drive into Manhattan frequently in my mother's new chocolate colored Chevrolet Monte Carlo with vinyl roof, I would frequent park on Mitchell Place off Beekman Place.  One could buy the next days www.nytimes.com at 54th street and 2nd Avenue at 11 P.M..  I would visit some friends and pubs.  I would always try to come out by 4 A.M. before the Rush Hour in.  I would stop at all night bagel shop at 74th street and Third Avenue and bring out some fresh bagels for my relative.  A lot of people thought I was still working for www.cbsnews.com since I had worked at the West 57th Street Broadcast center during the spring and early summer of 1973.  Alas, Watergate was the big news, and Nixon republicans like myself were on our way out.  I did keep an eye on Nixon's townhouse on East 65th Street.  Of course Gerald Ford was from Grand Rapids, Michigan near Holland, Michigan and Nelson Rockefeller was fairly established in Manhattan.  Nelson drove a brown Oldsmobile 98 that was always parked on Fifth Avenue in front of his apartment building with New York license plate 1908.  CIO

03/20/17 Monday 3:00 P.M.   I opened up the Sony 300 CD carousel player, and it broke because some of the CDs had fallen out of the rack, when I moved it.  I was not able to fix it.  I removed the CDs.  I threw it out.  I still have to five disk CD players hooked up the stereo system.  My window fan to blow the heat around broke, so I put another Lasko fan on the window ledge to blow the heat around.  I will throw out the broken fan shortly.  CIO

03/19/17 Sunday 10:45 P.M.  I ventured out to face the Irish, and there was nobody downtown, and it was perfectly clean, so they did a most excellent job of cleaning up Greenwich Avenue after the St. Patrick's Day parade.  I stopped by CVS on Greenwich Avenue, and I bought two 12 packs of 12 ounce diet Fresca for $10 and $1.20 can deposit, four 10.5 ounce cans of Campbell's mushroom soup for .88 each, and four 4 ounce tins of Bumble Bee chicken for .88 each and two 14 ounce boxes of Kashi Go Lean cereal for $2.99 each for $24.20 total.  I then drove down to the Senior Center area, and I sat out for a while.  I chatted with a relative.  I chatted with a 77 year old Starbucks regular customer.  I walked down as far as Richard's.  I returned to Starbucks, and I used the bathroom.  I chatted with another regular Starbucks customer.  The have an odd brand of 12 ounce coffee called Taichai or something like that is only 57 cents a 12 ounce cup.  We chatted some more outside.  I then went by the Stop and Shop which was not busy at all.  I bought six Everything bagels for $2.99, a 8 ounce package of Stop and Shop deli sliced Swiss cheese for $2.50, two Marie Callender 13 ounce Sweet and Sour chicken dinners for $2.50 each, two 13 ounce Marie Callender chicken Alfredo dinners for $2.50 each, a 16 ounce package of Stop and Shop deli sliced honey ham for $5.99, two 8 ounce Perdue chicken Frieta grills boneless breast of chicken strips for $3 each, fresh asparagus for $2.99 a pound for $3.23, two baking potatoes for .99 a pound for $1.63, and about 14 ounces of seafood salad for $3.14 less .25 can return for $35.23 total.  They still have lobster rolls there for $7.49.  I then returned home.  I used to my little folding cart from the back of the Volvo wagon to bring up the Fresca.  I chatted with a neighbor.  I then put my other groceries away.  CIO

End of Scott's Notes week of 03/18/17 

03/18/17 Saturday 10:35 P.M.  I will now send out my weekly notes.  I will then shut down the primary work computer.  I will then go outside briefly.  I will then go to bed.  CIO

03/18/17 Saturday 10:35 P.M.  Out in www.nantucket.net , when I returned from Oslo, Norway in April, 1983, I returned to working at http://languedocinn.com/ French restaurant as the head dishwasher for $8.75 an hour which was my last job ever.  I lived at the Inn on Hussey street nearby.  In the summer when the restaurant was quite busy serving up to 250 meals at night, I would start work at 10 A.M..  I would usually make a three egg cottage omelet with cottage cheese and eat it with milk and French bread with butter.  The restaurant would open for lunch at 11 A.M..  I would wash the dishes and the glassware in the dishwasher.  I would also clean some of the pots and pans in the large metal sink which had been my first job as pot scrubber for $2.15 an hour in 1977.  One uses a paint scraper and heavy steel sponge to clean the burnt material off the pots and pans.  The dishwasher had three five gallon pales of dishwashing detergent and other chemicals underneath it which they replaced every few days.  I would have to breath all of those chemicals in the steam from the dishwasher.  I would have to put the glassware out by the bar, which meant I would show up all hot sweaty in my new pink LaCoste polo shirt that I had bought for $40 at Murray's Toggery shop.  The waiters would bring an endless stream of dishes, silverware, and glassware to the dishwasher.  The plates would go back on the chef's line.  Sometime, I would also have to bring the silverware out to the dining area.  After lunch was over at 2 P.M., I would do some cleaning up of the restaurant.  I would frequently then jog out to the beach and back which was about 10 miles.  I would be back at the restaurant at 4 P.M..  I would prep some of the food peeling 100 pound bags of onions and cutting them in the industrial Cuisine Art machine and peeling and cutting 50 pound bags of green beans.  At about 5 P.M., I would eat a fish dinner such as filet of sole and one or two vegetables sautéed with a glass of milk and French bread with butter.  The restaurant would get busy about 6 P.M..  I would work mostly as a dishwasher with two other young college students Billy and Nicky and Phillip moving the endless chain of dishes, glassware, and silverware.  We always chatted amongst ourselves.  As a pot scrubbers, one had to get used to the all of the irate chefs with French knives in their hands.  Others were doing prep work or making salads and deserts.  I would take about two breaks for a tonic and cigarette.  About 11 P.M. the restaurant would close.  Then one had to do a complete breakdown of the kitchen cleaning everything including the chef's area, the floors, work areas, and any dirty areas.  During clean up period, we would listen to disco music like we were all dancing.  The chef would drink about six bottles of www.perrier.com since he was part owner, but we had to get by on tonic.  About 4 A.M., when the bakery crew arrived, we would depart, and I would go home and collapse for about five or six hours to return to the same old routine.  In the 1978, when I was a pot scrubber, there, I would also bring my roommate home a meal.  I also had to transport two one hundred pound pales of garbage pales out back for the morning garbage.  I would get one beer at the end of the work shift.  I did it about six days a week.  On my day off, I would go to the beach on the south shore and suntan, and in the evening I o would enjoy a $2 bottle of French white wine.  I would frequently sit downtown on my day off and people watch downtown and walk around the wharf area.  I paid $50 a week for my basement 8 foot by 12 foot room with a two by four bed.  I cleaned up the in bathroom of the guest house.  I had an old black and white TV with one cable channel with "No Time for Sergeants", "Our Miss Brooks" and "Ole Susannah".  The Inn was only about a hundred yards from the restaurant.  The restaurant was across the street from the Jared Coffin house.  I would also have to frequently sweep the brick sidewalk in front of the restaurant.   There was no air conditioning in the kitchen.  Thus I was use to going really fast in the restaurant, when I came off the island for good in December 1983, and the Greenwich Hospital put me on medication.  CIO

03/18/17 Saturday 9:50 P.M.  I chatted with a relative.  I watched "Bombing Hitler's Super Gun".  It told how Joe Kennedy Jr. died in World War II.  CIO

03/18/17 Saturday 8:50 P.M.  I went outside.  I ate a roast beef and Swiss cheese sandwich on a Kaiser roll.  I intermixed four deli slices of medium rare roast beef about four ounces with four slices of Stop and Shop Swiss cheese about four ounces on a Kaiser roll with bird seed that I spread Hellmann's mayonnaise on both slices of the roll with Gold's hot horse radish on the roast beef and ground black pepper.  I ate it with Utz wavy potato chips and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I chatted with a relative.  I went outside briefly.  CIO

03/18/17 Saturday 2:50 P.M.  I went outside briefly, and I chatted with a neighbor.  Back in 1976, when I was homeless down in South Florida, I drove up from Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach, and I bought a www.sears.com fishing rod and reel for $30.  I explored Palm Beach for about a half dozen times, but I could not afford it.  I once noticed during the Super Bowl in 1977,  in Palm Beach there were a lot of "Old Guard" moving around during the Super Bowl.  I guess a lot of older people live quietly in those big old houses.  About fifteen years ago, I had a Taft School classmate call me from Mar Largo, where he was living.  He died four days after Teddy Kennedy.  The main post office square in Palm Beach is Scott Square, so a Scott family member must have been down there early.  A relative here in Greenwich, once knew Henry Flagler's daughter.  I once explored the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, and like all Flagler Hotels in Florida, there was an Episcopal church next to it.   A good friend of mine's father used to be part of the Palm Beach polo group before World War II.  My grandfather Boven in Holland, Michigan used to drive down to St. Augustine, Florida in the 1920s, which must have been quite a trip on the old roads.  What Florida used to look like in the Old Days http://scott-mike.com/photo/old-florida-post-card-011506.jpg .  CIO

03/15/17 Wednesday 9:00 P.M.  I chatted with a relative.  I watched "Prince Philip".  I went outside briefly.  Back in the winter of 1976 - 1977, when the King of Norway was on vacation in Fort Lauderdale, I started spending a lot of time going between Howard Hughes' people in Fort Lauderdale and Juan Tripp's people in Key West bypassing everything in between.  It was 20 degrees Fahrenheit at 7 A.M. on Thanksgiving morning according to the Bank sign next to the Swimming Hall of Fame in Fort Lauderdale.  One winter night in 1977, when my old 1966 Chevrolet Biscayne had been towed at the Swimming Hall of Fame for too many parking tickets, I started hitchhiking down to Key West.  I recall having to walk half the way on a very cold night.  I remember stopping at a Howard Johnson's for a bowl of oatmeal on the Florida Keys road to revive myself.  In the winter of 1977 and 1978, I managed to obtain a job dishwashing at the Le Vielle Maison, but I did not have a car, so I camped out in a tent on the north side of the Boca Inlet.  I would walk and hitchhike down to Fort Lauderdale in the day time returning back at 4 P.M. for my $2.15 hour job as a dishwasher at the very posh restaurant.  When I got my final $87 check, I bought a round trip Eastern airlines ticket to Nassau from Fort Lauderdale, and for three days, I was treated royally in the Bahamas by Richard Mercy and his friends.  However, when I returned to Fort Lauderdale I was left on the street again, and when I returned to Key West, I met John Bolton, who told me he was the architect on the Casa Marina Hotel project.  I believed him since he had the key to the building and financing.  Life on the road in Florida is very rough, and it does get colder down there.  CIO 

03/15/17 Wednesday 7:30 P.M.  I went outside again.

03/10/17 Friday 1:30 P.M.  I went outside, and I walked around the front side of the building.  It looks like we have gotten about four inches of snow.  None of it is sticking on the road.  Maybe it is the local Irish hacking me for being pro British.  In the local mid 1970s days, the local blue collar youth hung out at Augie's in Cos Cob, so maybe that is where the hackers are hanging out causing their mischief.  CIO

03/10/17 Friday 12:50 P.M.  Hacking has been an ongoing problem all of these years.  When I used a telephone internet connection, I once has the bios hacked on three computers in one night.  CIO

03/10/17 Friday 12:40 P.M.  I went downstairs, and I chatted with a neighbor.  I stood outside a while.  I have been smoking about five cigarettes a day, which I plan to quit, when I get my car back.  I have been under stress with the failed Section 8 inspection and straightening up the apartment, the car repairs, and the computer failure.  Being disabled, I do things in my own time and at my own pace, and I gradually get things done.  Having worked in the past, and having maintained my current apartment for 29 years, I think I know what I am doing.  A friend keeps suggesting that I get rid of the Ethan Allen recliner and clear out some items underneath the living room window and put in a love seat, but I never entertain guests, and for my own usage the apartment is setup just fine.  From my own perspective, I don't think the CIA has ever hacked my computers, since they would have no reason to do so.  I personally think it might be some of the local youth whom might be causing the problems.  They obviously have a lot of free time.  In the past, the hacking occurred around the school holidays at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, and Summer recess which leads me think it might be the local youth.  Why they might do it is beyond me.  Obviously since 1989, some of them might have grown up a bit.  CIO

03/10/17 Friday 10:10 A.M.  I went back to bed until 9:30 A.M..  A neighbor rang my bell.  I went downstairs to the neighbor's apartment to help him out with a minor computer problem.  I stood outside, and I chatted with another neighbor.  CIO

03/10/17 Friday 7:00 A.M.  I woke up, and I went outside and chatted with a neighbor at 7:30 P.M..  I ate 8 ounces of potato salad and some Cheez-its.  I went back to bed at 8 P.M..  I woke up at 6:30 A.M..  I went outside, and I chatted with a neighbor.  It is just beginning to snow outside lightly, it is currently 33 degrees Fahrenheit, so it might not snow that much.  I will now eat breakfast.  I ate breakfast of Nature's Valley oat clusters cereal and milk, a toasted onion bagel with Smart Balance Spread, a glass of 50% punch and 50% cold filtered water, and a 12 ounce cup of 50% regular coffee and 50% decaffeinated coffee with Equal sweetener and milk and vitamins and supplements.  CIO

03/09/17 Thursday 2:05 P.M.  In August of 1980, I drove with a friend through Key West on our way to California.  We picked up a miniature palm coconut that I donated to the Botanical garden at Stamford University when we visit Palo Alto on that trip.  Then in February 1982, I returned to Key West when it was minus 26 degrees Fahrenheit in Manhattan, but I ran out of places to say, so I was arrested for sleeping on the beach which is a serious crime in Florida.  I have not been back to Key West since, although I have visited Vero Beach and Bayonet Point and Fort Lauderdale since then.  I had a private friend in Key West that was related to the Dupont family, and he owned the craft shop across from the Post Office.  He later became a dog walker in Manhattan.  CIO

03/08/17 Wednesday 12:55 P.M.  I ate a Marie Callender 16 ounce chicken pot pie and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  If anyone thinks I have not done too much all of these years since 1989 with personal computers, I have also walked around downtown Greenwich and Tod's Point frequently over the 33 years, since I returned from Nantucket.  When one walks, one sees more reality than when one simply stays at home watching television.  Last October 2016, my right leg froze while walking Greenwich Avenue in the early morning hours, so I have been doing physical therapy since then.  It might have to do with all of the weight I put on up at 258 pounds since I quit smoking.  Every pound above the knees is the equivalent to four pounds at the knees.   Also in Manhattan, Nantucket, and Key West, and in my youth down in Decatur, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida, I also walked a lot and played golf.  Thus I think it would be safe to say, I am a professional walker.  Still at my more senior age, I have been relaxing more at home.  Since none of the people on the internet know hot to communicate directly, I still have to make my own decisions as to what is best from my perspective.  I put the photographs in the latest photo albums along with all of Queen Elizabeth II's letters and envelopes.  One thing I am fairly confident about is somebody over in England probably still speaks English.  Alas, since I am also half Dutch, I don't know the Dutch language.  CIO

3/07/17 Tuesday 11:20 A.M.  I chatted with a relative.  I also chatted with Stamford Volvo again, and they told if I did the $1,750 repairs, it would be safe to drive to Maine in the summer as opposed to doing all of the $2730 repairs.  My relative said if I have any more problems, they might get me a used Subaru.  I am still waiting to hear from my relative the engineer.  CIO

3/07/17 Tuesday 11:15 A.M.  I chatted with a relative twice.  I chatted with Paul at Stamford Volvo at 1-888-452-2939.  At www.kbb.com my Volvo XC70 with 115,000 miles is worth $2,000 for dealer trade in and $3,500 for private party sale.  Stamford Volvo told me the Ignition switch, serpentine belt, battery, and transmission fluid need to replaced which would be about $1,750.  Also the brake lines and motor mounts and front sway bar links need to be replaced which would bring it $2730 plus tax.  I am waiting to hear from a relative who is familiar with the car to tell me what to do.  Stamford Volvo wants me to let them know by 3 P.M., so they can order the ignition switch.  I went through http://scott-mike.com/bf.htm .  CIO

3/06/17 Monday 3:10 P.M.  I threw out the garbage.   I met up with a neighbor downstairs.  I took my neighbor downtown to the TD Bank.  I then went by the Chase Bank at Deerfield Place.  We then went to the Wells Fargo Bank at the Stop and Shop center, and we paid our rent to the Greenwich Housing Authority.  I then went to the Stop and Shop, and I bought an Almond Danish for $1.29 and a box of 40 Hefty extra strong draw string kitchen garbage bags for $7.99 and .51 tax for $9.79 total.  I found an apple in the Stop and Shop parking lot.  We then went downtown to the Senior and the Arts Center.  I ate my almond Danish.  My neighbor went to Starbucks for a sandwich.  I went to Zen Stationary, and I bought an Ace's High scratch card for a dollar, and I won a free card.  On the second card with a $1,000 prize, the dealer had a 10, but I did not beat that, so I lost.  I then went back up the Avenue, and I met up with my neighbor.  When I went to start my Volvo wagon, it would not start.  The key would not turn in the ignition to release the gear ship lever, and it only would turn half way, so the car would not start.  I tried it a number of times.  I called Stamford Volvo at 1-888-452-2939, and they told me to turn the steering wheel back and forth fast and jiggle the key trying to turn it, but that still did not work.  I chatted with two relatives.  I finally called 1-800-42GEICO, and they dispatched https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=bill+service+and+auto+body+stamford+ct&* Bill's Service South of Stamford to come and tow the car.  It took them 90 minutes to arrive, since they were busy.  I tired the car a few times more.  Earlier I had used the bathroom at the Senior and the Arts Center.  My neighbor offered to buy me lunch, but I declined because I wanted to stay outside waiting.  I ate a muffin that he gave me.  When Bill's Service arrived at 1 P.M., they tried working with the ignition to get it to start, but they could not get it to start.  They finally agreed to come back later and tow it to Stamford Volvo, when it was less busy.  I smoked three cigarettes my first in a year and a half from all of the stress.  I walked up the street, and I stopped by the Chase Bank near Saks Fifth Avenue.  I then returned to the senior center.  I called the Greenwich Taxi company at 1-203-869-6000, and they showed up promptly, and returned myself and my neighbor home to Byram for a $12 charge and a $3 tip for $15 total.  I chatted with Bill's service to give them my telephone number at home.  My Obama phone does not ring, so I don't know how to answer it,  Even, when it is set on vibrate, it does not vibrate.  I chatted with a relative.  I chatted with a neighbor outside, and I smoked one more cigarette.  I drank a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 8:00 A.M.  My social worker with a home aid are inspecting my apartment this Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 P.M. to give me some tips about passing my Greenwich Housing Authority Section 8 Inspection.  I will now make my bed.  I will then shower and clean up.  I will then go downtown.  I don't have enough energy to walk Greenwich Avenue.  At close to age 67, I am getting older particular in the cold weather of winter.  I chatted with another local walker, and he is also sleeping over 14 hours a day.  Walking in cold weather for older people wears them out.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 7:30 A.M.  Not much snow in Kennebunk, Maine http://www.kennebunkportbeachwebcam.com/ .  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 7:30 A.M.  I rested for a half hour.  I ate a 16 ounce Stouffer's stuffed peppers with grated parmesan and Romano cheese on it and a 12 ounce glass diet Fresca.  In the old day in Greenwich in the 1970s, when I only weighed 130 pounds, Stouffer's frozen meals were very popular back then.  They had frozen 8 ounce packages of creamed chipped beef, lobster thermador, and shrimp thermador.  The last two came with packages of white rice.  The chipped beef was good on an English muffin.  In Greenwich Village where the students in Manhattan tend to gravitate, Eggs Florentine or Eggs Benedict or a cheese omelet all of with English muffin and coffee was about $3.   New Yorkers like walking a lot, so they tend not to eat too much food and they stay lean and hungry.  To heavier suburban individuals whom are use to shopping regularly in grocery stores and using automobiles, the New York lifestyle is not considered that user friendly.  I used to help run my family's various houses in Greenwich and elsewhere in this area, which takes a lot of effort.  I think the only job I have had on the books in Greenwich is when in the fall of 1973, I worked as a waiter at Boodles.  I once made a $100 on a busy Sunday afternoon brunch.  The interns at the Greenwich Hospital seemed to have the most money to spend.  I once was able to carry five or six plates of entrees along one arm at one time.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 6:05 A.M.  I will now rest some more.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 5:35 A.M.  I drank a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  Diet Fresca from my perspective, so of tastes like cactus juice.  When I met Vincent Butler in Santa Cruz, California on Labor Day weekend in 1980, when I was out in California campaigning for Ronald Reagan, he invited me to stay with him for Labor Day weekend, since his wife was visiting Lake Tahoe.  As I recall, I was hitchhiking to Santa Cruz after having just returned to San Jose from Maui.  We drank about three half gallons of Smirnoff Vodka, so it was a lost weekend.  He had all of the old German march songs that we enjoyed listening to.  He gave me a radio in a Fresca can that I sent to my mother in Kennebunkport, Maine.  I think afterwards, I spent a few days drying out in a very good rehab place with Iranians in Santa Cruz drinking fresh orange juice.  I normally did not drink too much back then, but when one encountered a heavy drinker, it could be a disaster.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 5:20 A.M.  Moonshine Movers is done for the day.  In the bedroom, I cleared out a lot of the computer parts boxes from the upper bookcase by the bedroom window and also to the left of that bookcase.  In the living room, I cleared out the bookcase behind the Sony Trinitron television.  I left the two new Seagate 320 GB IDE hard drives and the old OS/2 and earlier Windows operating systems on the shelf.  I left another box of new IDE cable to the left of the dumpster.  I also cleared out the center hallway bookcase shelf.  In two plastic bags, I threw out about a dozen new Mad Dog CPU coolers that I left to the left of the dumpster.  I guess that in all was about ten runs to dumpster with my little folding cart.  I am worn out and finished with downsizing for the day.  The place from my perspective is looking better.  However, I have lived here for 28 years, so to the newcomer, it does not appear as a new apartment.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 3:45 A.M.  I put my two Iview 7 inch tablets in their boxes, and I put them in the bookcase at the hallway entrance.  I also took my two old Nokia cell phones with their power supplies, and another inexpensive Google Android cell phone with its power supply, and I put them in plastic zip lock bags in the same book case.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 3:25 A.M.  Back in my youth, when I worked as a dishwasher pot scrubber at Le Languedoc on www.nantucket.net , I would work from 4 P.M. to 4 A.M. six or seven days a week, and the last five hours of the day was cleaning up the restaurant which was a lot of work after dishwashing pot scrubbing all night earlier.  The chef who was in front of the hot cast iron stoves during the dining hours, would drink up to six bottles of www.perrier.com to keep from getting dehydrated.  I sometimes also worked the three to four hour lunch shift.  I became very good using an aluminum French omelet pan over a natural gas flame to cook a three egg omelet.  I would make it like a crepe cooking it on side with butter and then flipping it, so it puffed up.  I just drank a 8.5 ounce Perrier with Angostura bitters.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 3:05 A.M.  I threw out two suitcases.  I kept my Pan AM, Air Canada, and KLM flight bags in my small suitcase with wheels.  I threw out a new 100 piece container set.  I left both the suitcases and the container set on the left side of the dumpster to be claimed.  I threw out some small computer boxes.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 2:45 A.M.  I threw out the garbage.  I threw out six kitchen garbage bags of old socks and boxer shorts.  I threw out two old laser cartridges.  I threw out two broken DVD/RW drives.  I threw out a box full of IDE cables.  I put my old out of date self made tobacco products on the left floor of the bedroom closet, where the Premier machines are.  CIO

3/05/17 Sunday 1:55 A.M.  I made my bed.  I ate a toasted bagel with Smart Balance spread and a cup of coffee with Equal sweetener and milk.  One of my father Louis Dale Scott's old companies Monsanto first started out making artificial sweetener.  The Monsanto  www.monsanto.com  family were from Saint Croix were Sephardic Jews from Brazil.  The first shoot on my Amarillo plants has lost it three blooms, but the second shoot now has four white blooms with a pink tinge.  Back to house cleaning.  CIO
