Note: <888> 03/31/10 Wednesday 11:40 P.M..  In 1953 to 1954, my father Louis Dale Scott who was a chemical engineer worked for DuPont. The miracles of Science™ in Martinsville, Virginia.  In reading about the DuPont family, I noticed that Pierre DuPont's only child was his daughter who married the actor Randolph Scott who also was a member of the Scott family from Virginia.  I did not have much contact with the DuPont family after that, until about the time I was going to graduate from www.lfc.edu in 1972, I went to Trader's Vics in Chicago, Illinois for dinner, and there was a private party going on there for the DuPont Paint pigments supplies group.  Thus I guess DuPont makes paint pigment.  In the summer of 1972, my girl friend in Lake Forest, Illinois whose family owned Morgan Stanley introduced my to Rob Glore and Hurley Haywood.  Hurley's family owned the Harris Trust Bank in Chicago, Illinois and Rob's mother was a DuPont.  His grandmother lived across the street from the Onwensia Country Club in Lake Forest, Illinois, and she had Lady Bug's painted on the bottom of her swimming pool.  Rob had just gotten out of college in Switzerland, and he was living with a friend who was a United States Navy medic on the north side of Chicago.  Later that fall, Rob, Hurley, and his cousin of last name Whitney from Wasetta, Minnesota, and myself drove Hurley's Cigarette Boat, Porsche, and Pickup truck down to Point De Vedra in Jacksonville, Florida.  I left, and I went down to St. Thomas to visit Peter Isham another roommate at the Farm who was teaching down there.  Rob and his cousin went down to his place in Key West, Florida after that, since he had a shop down there.  The next winter in January 1973, I visited with Hurley at the Waldorf Towers in Manhattan, and that is where I saw the Duke of Windsor still alive entering the Waldorf Towers.  Hurley's grandfather was General Hurley, the first American General to deal with Mao Tse Tung.  When I went down on my own to Key West, Florida on Halloween in 1976, Rob was already established as one of the primary business people down there.  He had a craft shop across the street from the post office which employed about seven women.  Apparently the DuPont family owned the largest bank in Florida called the First National Bank of Florida.  One did not see Rob much down there, since he was private; but he occasionally could be seen walking an Irish Setter.  Back in April 1977, he cashed my six months of unemployment checks, when they finally arrived, and I left Key West with Jimmy Eldert and we visited Hurley Haywood in Jacksonville, Florida, and then I paid $150 for Jimmy to fly back to the University of New Hampshire on Eastern airlines.  I later saw Jimmy in Nantucket that summer.  As Key West became even busier the following year, one did not see much of Rob around, although Jimmy and John were there.  Also, in October 1973, when I bought the 1970 blue Volvo sedan from Dave Peabody here in Greenwich, Connecticut, my father arranged a $1,750 loan from a Mr. DuPont at the Union Bank in Darien, Connecticut.  I suppose there might have been other Duponts around, but I never noticed.   CIO

I use to get a good bargain on fresh fish, by buying them from the charter captains in Key West, Florida whom usually have a lot of extra fish at the charter docks.  If one is into bridge fishing, I used to fish underneath the south end of the bridge at the 26 mile marker.  If you shop lift at Fautos, you probably end up going to jail.  They can also throw people in jail down there for dropping a piece of pizza paper on the street.  However, if you have money and drink alcohol, they tend to treat you like a VIP. 

Jimmy Eldert had a red haired friend that lived in a Japanese style house near the Casa Marina.  I think his friend was in the landscaping business. 

The Mosquito Control District is responsible for keeping the mosquitoes away, or nobody could stand to be down there.

Rob Glore had the Craft shop across the street from the Key West Post Office.  Steve Bahil lived above the funeral home just south of the Post Office.  Whitehead Street had about 50 lawyers for drug busts.

I lived in the Key West Hotel Resorts & Florida Keys Beach Accommodations - Casa Marina Resort Key West for free in the winter of 1978, when it was undergoing remodeling.  Jimmy Eldert knew Chris Ray of the End of the Road Construction company that was doing the job.  John Bolton had a key to the hotel, when I met him, and he claimed to be the architect.  Of course back then, there was so little money in Key West, Florida, people tended to believe anything that people said.  The last time I was in Key West, Florida in the winter of 1982, I stayed with somebody that looked like Prince Andrew who was from Canada, and he lived in a remodeled garage near the Casa Marina.  I also stayed with Steve Bahil.  Back in 1982, you were not allowed to camp out on the beach, which in the 1970s people were able to do.

Boyd's Camp Ground was in Stock Island just east of Key West, and further up the Florida Keys was the Welcome to John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park - Key Largo, Florida Keys .  However, I am sure this time of year, it is quite busy down there with Spring Break.

I always liked this place Key West Resort - Key Ambassador Resort Inn - Key West Hotel .

I used to get away with sleeping in my car in the parking lot at the Key West International Jetport.  Of course, when I was down there in the 1970s, there were a lot of abandoned government buildings, such as the red brick building south of Mallory Square.  From what I could tell a lot of the buildings were run down and abandoned at the Truman Annex Naval Base too.

Jim Eldert rented a small apartment in the building across the street from the Catholic Church, but he worked as a bus boy at the Pier House and also ran a yogurt stand on Duval Street.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/29/10 Monday 9:10 P.M..  From the period from 1972 until 1982, I used to occasionally live in Manhattan.  Since most of that time I was unemployed helping out around friend's apartments, I managed to keep busy with apartment chores.  I usually got up late in the day.  I would dress up properly in a wool or corduroy trousers and a sports jacket with a wool sweater.  I would start my days eating breakfast or late lunch breakfast at an inexpensive coffee shop nearby where I lived and read the New York Times.  Depending on the weather, I would walk around the midtown area of Manhattan enjoying the pedestrian viewpoint of life.  On bad weather days, I would frequently go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art which I got to know quite well.  I only lived in Manhattan one summer, and then I spent more time exploring Central Park.  Of course, since I knew people and had family living in the Connecticut suburbs and also knew people way out on Long Island, I would also spend time going back and forth to the suburbs.  After dinners in the evening in the city which I eventually learned to cook myself, I would go out for a walk around the areas that I lived in.  Frequently late at night I would go downtown to Greenwich Village and visit pubs which the younger generation would frequent.  Most people were working one of many starter jobs.  I frequently talked about computers having worked with an IBM 360 mainframe while at Polaroid one summer.  I always said "GIGO", "Garbage In Garbage Out."  About 1982 Apple came out with the Lisa, so New Yorker became more computer literate about the time I moved out of New York City.

Thus I spent a great deal of time walking around Manhattan exploring what it had to offer.  I never drank much alcohol, and pubs were a warm place to have a cigarette and chat with other young people.  About the time I moved out of Manhattan, a lot of the pubs seemed to have become video bars, since a lot of the younger people around New York University did not have English as a primary language and with the video going or the music going, nobody knew they were non English speaking students.  I think from their looks a lot of them were European, so after all of these years, they must be professionals by now.  In Greenwich Village there were a lot of people from the upper East Side and upper West side, Brooklyn, New Jersey, and Long Island.  I never ran into many people from Connecticut except a few Yale University students exploring the City on weekends.  Up until 1983, I also lived occasionally on Long Island, Nantucket, South Florida, and I also made about four trips to California, where not many people knew anything about computers except the programming language Fortran. 

I never explored Wall Street very much, since there was not too much going on there at night, and it was usually deserted whenever I went down there during the night hours.  However, in the daytime it was quite busy.  I felt more comfortable around the Midtown East Side area, since with Grand Central station there were more people from Connecticut and Westchester Counties.  However that area is a lot more expensive.  Since I knew people with their own apartments, I had people I could visit with and meet their friends.  On VIP days in Midtown, there would be a lot more security and more people.  It was sort of hard to figure out whom actually lived there, and whom actually was visiting.  Since the east side of Midtown is near Queens, one would also see a lot of people from Queens. 

Generally when one mentioned one that they were from Connecticut, it was assumed one lived way out in the country.  New Yorkers tend not to listen to people or understand.  When I used to drive into Manhattan at night when it was cheaper to park, it would frequently take less than a half hour to get there.  Of course, one had to move their car by rush hour in the daytime. 

I also took the train frequently, but that was like riding a crowded subway car which I also did frequently.  I learned traveling the City buses although slower was much more of an enjoyable trip, and one could see all of the sights above ground.  Ever in the early morning hours, the buses run all night, if you do not mind waiting a while for a bus on a cold winter's night.

Since the country was in a recession in the period that I lived in Manhattan, nobody was too interested in Wall Street or business.  However, there were always people still going to Manhattan trying to make ends meet.  I knew quite a few people whom were established outside of the New York City area, so they could afford to live there part of the time.

I noticed over time, that although I was going into Manhattan, a lot of the people back out in Greenwich, Connecticut did not always like the people that were showing up here on the reverse trip.  However, I figured it would be good for business out here in Greenwich, Connecticut.

Most Manhattan people do not watch television, since they have so many other activities to pursue.

Still having lived back in Greenwich, Connecticut since December 1983, when I spent the previous two weeks in Manhattan homeless living out of the East Side airline terminal, I figure I am better out here that walking around in circles in Manhattan.

One roommate tried to get me to work at the Scandia ski shop on West 57th Street across the street from the Royal Bank of Scotland, but since although I might look Scandinavian, I do not know much about skiing. 

Since I live about 7 miles south of www.ibm.com in nearby Armonk, New York to the north of me, I figure there are a lot of computer people around me, and they are just more specialized, so they are not too chatty or too outgoing about computers which frequently bores non computer people particular financial types.   CIO

When I was a student in Florence, Italy back in the winter of 1972, I use to visit the Florence Flea Market which is sort of like an outdoor bizarre.  Once I met two Norwegian students who seemed a lot more happy than everyone else around me with the Winter Doldrums.  They told me they had just come back from Lanzarote.  Thus that winter, when I started traveling with my U-rail pass, I visited a Greenwich friend in Grenoble, France.  I then checked out Barcelona, Spain.  Thinking Lanzarote would be sort of like Tobago which I had visited the previous two winters, I took the train down the Costa de Sol to Malaga, Spain.  After a day of talking with some of the local students, I caught an Iberia jet for $40 to Lanzarote.  I did not know anything about volcanoes, but when I rented a moped, and I started exploring the island, I found out that the huge black sand dunes were volcanic lava that the natives grew onions in them.  I thought they were black sand dunes, I did not know they were volcano remains.  I did not see any evidence of volcanic activity.  I was there a few weeks, and half way though my visit I met Rhone Dietrin who was Norwegian, and he spoke Spanish, Norwegian, and English; so I had somebody to talk to besides using my four years of high school French to try to communicate with the Spanish.  Rhone never told me about the fact they were volcanoes.  I did not know the movie a "Million Years BC" with Raquel Welch had been filmed there the year before.  However, it was not like Tobago in that there is very little rain or vegetation on the island, since it is a desert island.  Also in February 1972, it was about 65 degrees Fahrenheit in the day time, and it was down to 40 degrees Fahrenheit an night, so it definitely was not a tropical island in the winter.

Rhone Dietrin never surfaced anywhere on the internet, so he is probably still living at his parents house at the end of the runway in Lanzarote.  He was quite humorous, and since there is very little water on Lanzarote, nobody cleans up, except for when they go in the water at the beach.  I did clean up when I left the island to get on the jet, but for most of the time there, I was a bit dirty and unkempt.  CIO

I took the Epox computer items off the brass and glass table, and I put them on the bed in the bedroom.  I put the brass and glass coffee table out by the dumpster.  I removed the items hanging behind the front entry door, so it opened all of the way.  I stripped the 96 inch long sofa of its slip covers and cushions, and I put them in the hallway.  I was able to leverage the sofa out into the hallway.  I chatted with a neighbor.  I threw away the cushions and the slip covers.  I paid a neighbor $20 to help me move the sofa down the back stairway and out by the dumpster.  I took out the oak leaf from the FIC server, and I put in one of the white shelves.  I put in a white shelf last night on the primary Vista computer, so both oak leaves were available.  I vacuumed along the windows where the sofa had been.  I moved some chairs and other items into the hallway.  I moved the oak dining table underneath the windows against the wall, and I put in both oak leaves, so the table is 76 inches long.  I put the primary Dell Latitude D410 laptop on the left side of the oak table, and I put the Epox computer on the right side.  I set up their accessories.  I threw out the Epson Stylus Color 880 printer, and I put the Minolta Laser 1350 on top of the FIC server.  I chatted with a relative.  I put the lazy Susan on the oak table.  I set up one eating place, and if the wireless keyboard is moved on the Epox computer, there is a second eating place.  I put the oak keyboard drawer underneath bedroom Abit computer.  I moved the two Afghans to the end of the bed.  I threw out the sofa pillows.  I threw out the wooden cassette cases.  I moved the throw rugs a little bit, and I vacuumed the apartment.  I put the recliner on an angle in front of the entry door facing the television, and I have the Harvard chair opposite it.  I put the small mahogany table on the right side of the Harvard chair with telephones on it.  I moved one small brass and glass table to the left side of the recliner, and I put remote controls and magazines on it.  I finished vacuuming.  I chatted with a friend.  I put items that I had put out in the hallway back in the apartment including three chairs around the oak dining table.  I moved the antenna for the shortwave radio, so it is now setup on the small white bookcase at the kitchen entrance.  I have the Samsung color laser printer on the far left corner on the oak dining table, and I still have to find a longer USB cable to connect it to the primary Vista computer.  The power strip for the Dell Latitude D410 laptop is on the far right of the white shelf of the FIC server.  I took of the burgundy throw off the French reproduction chair, and I stored it on the closet, so the white quilted throw with sheep skin in now on it.

I ate two hot dogs on buns with ketchup and mustard and 1/4th of a 6.3 ounce tube of Pringle salt and vinegar potato chips and a dill pickle slice, and watered down punch.  I will now shower and clean up.   CIO    

Note: <888> 03/26/10 Friday 10:25 P.M..  I ate two hot dogs on buns with ketchup and mustard and 1/4th of a 6.3 ounce tube of Pringle salt and vinegar potato chips and a dill pickle slice, and watered down punch.  I made up a fresh batch of punch.  I threw out the garbage.  I  will now shut down the primary Vista computer, and I will go to bed soon.

Mostly sunny tomorrow and 32 to 42 degrees Fahrenheit.  CIO   

Note: <888> 03/26/10 Friday 9:20 P.M..  I chatted with a relative and two friends.  The sofa is 96 inches long, so it will not fit in the elevator.  I might try to do the furniture move tomorrow, if I am up early enough.  I think I can take the slip covers and cushions off the sofa, and once I am able to get it out of the apartment, I can drag it down the back stairway to the dumpster area which is close by.  If I can not do it, I have a friend than can help me move it this Sunday.  I can put the French reproduction chair opposite the Ethan Allen recliner, and I can put the Harvard chair at the hallway entrance.  Technically I do not need the Epox computer in the living room, and I could stick it in the bedroom, and store Abit computer that is now in the bedroom away.  Once one starts moving furniture and other items, it sort of all evolves.  However, there will not be as many comfortable sitting areas in the apartment, but it will be more open and spacious.   CIO 

Note: <888> 03/26/10 Friday 8:00 P.M..  I woke up last night, and I ate 2/3rds of a 10 ounce can of CVS Deluxe mixed nuts.  I finally woke up at 10 A.M. this morning.  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with Smart Balance spread, a 50% to 50% mixture of fruit juice punch and cold filtered water, and a cup of coffee with truvia and milk.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I made my bed.  I showered, and I cleaned up.

For the two Dell D410 laptops, I ordered two Meritline.com - Laptop Shockproof Sleeve, Foam Material , Fits up to all 14.1" notebook for $5.99 each for $11.98 total with free shipping.  The Dell D410 laptops are 10 inches wide, but the wireless card sticks out another 2 inches for 12 inches wide, and they are 10.5 inches deep with the larger batteries, and an 1.25 inches thick, so they should fit in the above notebook sleeves.

I went downstairs, and I chatted with neighbors, and I threw out the garbage.  I watched www.foxnews.com, and I made 214 Premier Lights 100 MM filter Peter Stokkebye Norwegian shag pipe tobacco cigarettes.  I went outside, and I retrieved two white veneer composite shelves that are 47 inches long and 11 inches wide.  I stored them on the far right of the bedroom closet.  I might use them to support my primary computer monitors setup or at least one, if I use the oak dining table leaves mention below for the oak dining table.

I went back outside, and I chatted with neighbors.  I picked up the mail.  I chatted with a relative about a potential project.  Since I have to move some of the furniture out of my apartment for them to install the double pane windows sometime after Easter, I am thinking about getting rid of the 6 foot long Scott family sofa that came from Grand Rapids, Michigan in 1947.  It has cow tail stuffing and is very comfortable.  I fixed its bottom webbing about a half dozen years ago with nylon webbing.  I would also get rid of the mahogany desk that the FIC server sits on.  I would also get rid of the brass and glass coffee table that the Epox computer sits on. 

I would move the 56 inch diameter oak dining table against the outside wall with the windows possibly with the two 12 inch leaves for 76 inches total length.  There would not be room to put chairs at eight end, but I could put several along the open side.  I could set up the FIC and the Epox computers on it.  I would move the Ethan Allan recliner out into the room on a diagonal facing the Sony television.  I would put the mahogany tea table adjacent to it with the telephones or I could use one of the two small brass and glass end tables, and I could put the Harvard dining chair opposite it. 

There would be enough room to move the oak dining table out at least four feet to do the double pane window installation.  The Sony television, and its stand, and possibly the chest beneath the stand would still would have to be moved along with the curtains and curtain rods and the other items on the living room window shelf.  I think it would be simpler to down size now and as opposed to some time in the future when I am older, when it might be more difficult; particularly so, since I will have to moving the furniture anyway.

Earlier I threw out the garbage and the old periodical literature, and I watered the plants.   CIO

Note: <888> 03/26/10 Friday 12:40 A.M..  I did some minor computer maintenance.  I will now shut down the primary Vista computer, and I will go to bed soon.  I will eat a day old muffin before going to bed. 

Rain and snow today and 23 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.  I might be up at 8 A.M. today, if they work on the apartment windows next to my apartment, which would wake me up.  If not I might sleep a little bit later.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/25/10 Thursday 6:05 P.M..  I woke up the last two nights, and I ate a bowl of white cheddar Cheez-its.   I finally woke up at 8 A.M. this morning.  The windows installers were doing my neighbor's two small windows on the roof adjacent to my apartment.  I was told by the windows installer foreman, they will not be working here next week, so it will be a while, before they do my windows.  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with Smart Balance spread, a 50% to 50% mixture of fruit juice punch and cold filtered water, and a cup of coffee with truvia and milk.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I made my bed.  I showered, and I cleaned up.  I chatted with a relative.  I threw out the garbage, and I chatted with a neighbor.  I chatted with another relative.  Yesterday, I also threw out the white breakfast tray from the bedroom.  I also chatted with a friend who is coming out to visit with her husband on Easter Sunday, so we will do the usual ride around and probably visit Tod's Point weather permitting.  I went out to my 1 P.M. appointment.  I toured the Greenwich Hospital.  I chatted with someone fixing an information computer running Windows XP.  The bulletin board downstairs opposite the cafeteria has some local rental properties for rent.  Somebody has a big round red Coca Cola sign in their office.  I was told by the doorman, they now serve their delicious beef stroganoff dinner on Wednesday evenings for about $5.  I went downtown, and I used the bathroom at the senior and the arts center.  I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I chatted with a local.  I chatted with a neighbor getting his Mac Desktop fixed at the Mac store.  I stopped by CVS.  Another acquaintance told me he had a tree fall on his family house, and he was getting a camera to photograph it for insurance purposes.  I bought a 12 pack of CVS double roll premium toilet paper septic tank safe for $4.97 and .30 tax for $5.27 total.  After my walk, I used the bathroom at the senior and the arts center.  I then went by the Greenwich Library, and I chatted with one of the staff.  It seems back to normal after the storm cleanup.  I then went by the Stop and Shop, and I bought a 24 ounce family size box of Cheez-its for $3.99, a four pack of yesterday muffins for $2, a CAB which I think stands for "Canadian Angus Beef" London Broil for $2.99 a pound for $5.98, and fresh Chiquita bananas for .69 a pound for $1.94 for $13.91 total.  I then returned home.  I picked up the mail.  I put away my groceries.  I will now make and eat the same London Broil dinner that I have been eating recently.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/24/10 Wednesday 8:00 P.M..  I went out after the last note.  I parked in front of the park in front of the Ferrari dealership,  and I walked over to the new Greenwich Hardware store next to www.mcdonalds.com .  I tried to get a four prong energy saving light bulb, but they did not have them there.   They are mostly rental equipment for people with real estate that needs to be maintained.  I went by the Greenwich Hardware store downtown, and they sold me the four prong energy saving light bulb for $5.  I then went downtown, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I cleaned up some newspaper fliers in front of the senior and the arts center before my walk.  On the way up Greenwich Avenue, I stopped by there again, and I found the two different parts for the smoker's post that had been misplaced in two different locations, and I put it together by the right side of the building entrance.  I used the bathroom there.  On the way up Greenwich Avenue, I browsed the sales brochure at CVS.  I stopped by the Chase Bank on West Putnam Avenue just west of Greenwich Avenue.  After my walk, I sat out for a while, and I used the bathroom at the senior and the arts center again.  Before I went out today, I noticed all of the phonograph records that I had put by the dumpster were gone.  After my walk, I returned home.  I found a blue heavy nylon chair by the dumpster that I put in my Audi trunk with the other folding nylon chairs.  It is heavy duty for a fat person.  I tried the energy saving light bulb in the second of the two energy saving lamps in the bedroom, but the lamp was defective, so I threw it away.  I thus have two of the four prong spare energy saving light bulbs for the one still remaining in the bedroom.  I saved the lamp shade from the defective one.  I also picked up my mail on the way upstairs.  I took down the Lindbergh print, and I put it back in the bedroom window, and I hung the Picasso print from the living room on the bedroom wall above the sideboard bookcase.  I put one of the two yellow pineapple lamps on the sideboard bookcase, and it turns on with the light switch at the bedroom entrance along with a few other lights.  Earlier today, I threw out all of the sales receipts that I had saved in my file cabinet, and I put in the laser printer receipts in the upper file cabinet from the paper holder stack on the mahogany bureau.  I moved the Audi to its usual location.  I chatted with a relative.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/24/10 Wednesday 3:20 P.M..  I woke up at 8 A.M. this morning.  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with Smart Balance spread, a 50% to 50% mixture of fruit juice punch and cold filtered water, and a cup of coffee with truvia and milk.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I made my bed.  I showered, and I cleaned up.

I straightened up the bedroom area today.  I threw out all of my phonograph records about 150 of them.  I left them by the dumpster, and people have been taking them.  I threw out the small appliances that I had on the left living room closet shelf.  They included a Krups steamer, a Welbilt bread machine, a juicer, a blender, and a pasta machine with attachments.  I threw out my floppy disk cases from the chest underneath the living room Sony TV stand along with the old floppy disks.  I put the spare computer parts boxes from the bedroom book shelves on the left living room closet shelf, and where the phonograph records were in the entertainment center.  I put a punch of small computer parts in a bag in the TV chest.  I threw out an old 12 pack of Heineken an old 6 pack of German beer.  I sorted out the items on the bedroom shelves, and I threw out a lots of unneeded items including the broken Sony Handicam.  I took out the table that one shelf unit sat on, and I threw out the table, so there is now more room at the end of the bed in the bedroom with just the shelf unit there.  I threw out a bunch of old car stuff.  The building custodian looked at the changes in my apartment, and we discussed what we would do, when they do my windows.  It should be easier to move the bedroom shelves if need be, since there is not much stuff in them.  I gave the building custodian the Long Island light bulb to use as a terrarium.  People are gradually taking the phonograph records outside.  I also threw out two plastic hood milk crates.  I threw out some old computer parts including a half dozen keyboards and a dozen mice.  I hung the Lindbergh print on the bedroom wall above the shelf unit.

I ate a 18 ounce can of Campbell's New England clam chowder with an English muffin with Smart Balance and watered down punch.  I will now shut down the computer, and I will go downtown.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/19/10 Friday 4:50 P.M..  On a minor note of diplomacy.

This the Website of the UK government : Directgov of the United Kingdom British Government.

The British Government owns 80% of the Royal Bank of Scotland RBS | The Royal Bank of Scotland | Personal, Private, Business & Corporate Banking .

Their U.S.A. Branch is RBS - Group Global Portal .

It says here RBS Annual Report - Divisional review - US Retail & Commercial , RBS USA owns Citizens Banks.

Citizens Bank: Secure Online Banking & Personal Finance Solutions | Citizens Bank says they have 1,480 branches in the U.S.A.

I once read that in the United Kingdom they also own RBS - Group Global Portal and NatWest Personal banking .

Thus by deductive reasoning, we have a British Government Banking Institution on upper Greenwich Avenue near where the Duke of Windsor's own friend's Electrolux vacuum store use to be.

I guess that replaces RBS United States which has moved from Steamboat Road to their larger offices in their tall building in Stamford, Connecticut which is also suppose to have a large trading floor. 

Thus as opposed to Commercial British Banking in Greenwich, Connecticut, we now have Retail British Banking in Greenwich, Connecticut.

With the Bush family out of political office and with the economy in recession, there is not that much going on Greenwich, Connecticut anymore that would draw national attention.  Of course people here manage to survive, so they are probably living the way most of the rest of the country does, and outside of a few people from Manhattan whom think we are more affluent because we have more space around us, there is not really too much that has changed around here over the years.  I suppose if one had a bit of extra money, one could explore neighboring suburban areas, but with the price of gasoline that can be expensive.  Since I have lived here since 1961, I have pretty much seen a lot of the New York Metropolitan area, and thus having seen it before, I do not feel the need to see it all again.  It seems to me that since we have a lot of professionals that read a lot of printed material, this area does not really cater to the televised media people that so many other people seem to enjoy watching.

Storm Notice:

Governor Rell met in Greenwich with First Selectman Peter Tesei and in Stamford with Mayor Michael Pavia on Monday. After reviewing the damage and discussing the situation with local leaders, the Governor announced she will declare a state of emergency.

At Governor Rell’s direction, the state Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS) is working with Connecticut cities and towns to tally damage to public property and to homes and businesses, as well as expenses incurred in responding to the storm, to determine whether the state could qualify for assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Governor Rell said federal disaster assistance will be sought if minimum damage requirements are met. For Fairfield County, for example, a minimum of $2.85 million in damage must be recorded for that county to qualify for federal disaster assistance. For state government’s expenditures to qualify for federal reimbursement, the state would need to incur $4.39 million in costs.

DEMHS Commissioner Peter Boynton also held a conference call today with chief elected officials and first responders to determine whether communities needed any additional help from the state.

According to CL&P:

The following towns still have major customers out:
Darien 3157
Greenwich 12,948
New Canaan 4715
Norwalk 3483
Stamford 10,213
Westport 4604

Summary: Crews made progress overnight; more than 17,000 customers have been restored in the past 24 hours. Clearing weather will provide crews a break to make their big push. About 90 percent of our outages are still concentrated in lower Fairfield County. The hardest hit areas, in Greenwich appeared to be Old Greenwich, Riverside and central Greenwich (North Street area) which took the brunt of the storm with many fallen trees.  Power is still out in many of these homes. CL&P says about 99 percent of outages should be restored by Thursday.

I threw out the garbage.  I went downtown, and I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I used the bathroom at CVS, when I toured the store.  The new building where the Electrolux shop used to be off Greenwich Avenue is going to be a bicycle shop.  I noticed two smaller trees had come down at St. Mary's.  I ran into a regular walker there, and I walked back up Greenwich Avenue as far east at Milbank Avenue.  We saw the destruction at Whole Foods.  We then walked back down Greenwich Avenue, and I noticed the big tree on the north side of the Board of Education parking lot had split apart.  It looks like it might have to come down.  I sat out for a while with the other walker.  I then said good bye.  I then used the bathroom at the Senior and the Arts center.  The building is opened today, but there are no programs for seniors.   The bench on the north side of the park in front of the senior and arts center is damaged, and I think it was caused by a snow plow pushing snow against it earlier in the season.  The U.S.A. flags at the veterans monument across from the senior and the arts center and the Greenwich Post Office looked to be quite shredded by the storm. 

I then went by the Stop and Shop, I bought a six pack of Kaiser rolls for $2.49, a 16 ounce package of Smart Balance Lite for $2.50, deli white Land-O-Lakes cheese for $5.99 a pound for $6.05, deli sliced Virginia ham for $5.99 a pound for $8.87,a petit sirloin steak for $3.99 a pound less a $1 off coupon for $4.03, and fresh Chiquita bananas for .69 a pound for $1.83 for $25.77 total.  I then returned home.  They are working on repairing the roof on my building.  They are also doing two windows downstairs in my wing.  I put away the groceries.

Note: <888> 03/09/10 Tuesday 11:55 P.M..  As a poor person, I do not own any stocks, but I keep an index portfolio in my Microsoft Money 2007 program of a million dollars worth of stock that I indexed August 23, 1997.  Before the stock market crash of about a year and a half ago, it was up to close to $2 million, when after the crash it was down to about $1,225,000 and today it is currently at $1,611,885.36, so by my simple math the million dollars over 12.5 years in the stock market has increased $611,885.36 divided by 12.5 years or $48,950.8288 or to put it more simply 4.895% a year.  Thus if one had a Treasury Bill that paid over 5% a year, you might be doing better off over these last dozen or so years.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/05/10 Friday 1:55 A.M..  You can Google Earth for Lake Bluff, Illinois, and on the west shore of Lake Michigan just north of Lake Bluff, Illinois, there are a few fine estates that are a bit cold in the winter, but probably have a bit of privacy.  I think William McCormick Blair used to have one of them.  I think he started Wetlands, Conservation, Waterfowl, Duck Hunting - World Leader in Wetlands Conservation - Ducks Unlimited .

I Google Earthed Decatur, Alabama, and it seems Stratford Road ran east and west.  Thus just west of Summerville Road where the old stone quarry with the Quartz used to be, it seems to have been leveled off and turned into commercial buildings.  The Road to the West of the Walter Jackson School playground seems to still be there, but they have planted trees around the playground.  They have tornadoes in that part of the country.  CIO

BBC News - Dinosaur extinction link to crater confirmed

I emailed "Paul.Rincon-INTERNET@bbc.co.uk"

Subject: Quartz and Petrified Dinosaur Eggs in Decatur, Alabama U.S.A.

Back in 1955 to 1961, my family lived in Decatur, Alabama before we moved to Greenwich, Connecticut U.S.A.

We lived at 1920 Stratford Road which ran north from Summerville Road which ran east and west. 

 

Just south of Summerville Road at the intersection of Stratford Road across a creek and in the woods was an old stone quarry with caves.

We use to fine lots of quartz in the old stone quarry there.

 

Just west of our house at 1920 Stratford Road was the Walter Jackson Elementary School.

On the south side of their play ground where a north bound street ended, we

Found in a ditch we dug in, we found about a dozen petrified dinosaur eggs.  We used one egg to break open

Another one to see the yellow yoke.  I do not know what ever happened to the petrified

Dinosaur eggs, but we were living nears lots of scientists, since the Redstone Arsenal now the Marshall

Space center was 20 miles north of us in Huntsville, Alabama.

 

My father was a Chemical Engineer with Chemstrand formerly part of Monsanto.

 

Decatur, Alabama is on the Tennessee River about 200 miles north of the northern part of the

Gulf of Mexico.

 

There were also Copperhead and Rattlesnakes in the old stone quarry. 

 

I always wondered if Stone Mountain, Georgia http://www.stonemountainpark.com/

And Caesar’s Head, South Carolina just north of Traveler’s Rest, South Carolina

http://www.stateparks.com/caesars_head.html

might not have been part of the Asteroid that hit the Yucatan.

 

I have mentioned this many times to people around the Natural History Museum in Manhattan, and

They always turn a deaf ear to me, and for two years, I even use to go to pub behind the

Natural History Museum, when I lived about four blocks west of it from 1980 to 1982.

Note: <888> 03/04/10 Thursday 8:55 P.M..  I woke up today at 2 P.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with olive oil, a 50% to 50% mixture of fruit juice punch and cold filtered water, and a cup of coffee with truvia and milk.  I washed the breakfast dishes, and I made my bed.   I showered,  and  I cleaned up.  One of my neighbors said they might not be doing anymore windows for a while, but nobody official has said anything.  I threw out the garbage.  I went by the Chase Bank just west of Greenwich Avenue on West Putnam Avenue.  I then went by the Wachovia Bank on Benedict Place, and I paid my rent to the Greenwich Housing Authority.  I then went downtown, and I used the bathroom at the Senior and the Arts center.  I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area.  I said hello to http://greenwich-gossip.blogspot.com/ twice.  They were having an art opening at the Senior and the Arts center.  I also picked up a prescription at CVS.

After my walk, I went by Radio Shack in Cos Cob, and I bought a package of five red and five black 2.25 inch alligator clamps Insulated Grip 2-1/4"Alligator Clips - RadioShack.com for $3.59 and a 100 foot roll of speaker wire 75-Ft. 24-Gauge Clear 2-Conductor Speaker Wire - RadioShack.com for $3.99 and .45 tax for $8.03 total.  I then browsed the store looking for bargains.  I bought a clearance item a 23-018  8 hour Ni-MH travel charger for AA and AAA Ni-MH rechargeable batteries for $1.87 and .11 tax for $1.98 total.  They have a Eton Red Cross  radio on sale $35.99 plus tax  down from $49.99 plus tax, but I don't think it has shortwave.

I then toured CVS at the Cos Cob shopping center.  Starbucks across the street did not look very busy.  They have some nice pictures in the lobby of the Cos Cob CVS building of the Greenwich Land Trust .  I then returned home in a lot of Thursday evening traffic.  I picked up my mail.  I thought about it, and I used four black alligator clips to string the speaker cord across the top of my living room curtains which is about 20 feet, and then I ran the speaker cable uncoiling it through the false ceiling leaving the remaining half on the coil and brought it down from the false ceiling to the location where the Eton shortwave radio is on the oak dining table, and I connected the other end with a red alligator clamp which I connected  to the Eton shortwave radio extension antenna.  I now got over twice as many shortwave channels on SW1, and they all sound a lot clearer.  I chatted with a relative.  I will now eat the same dinner as last night.  CIO      

Note: <888> 03/04/10 Thursday 5:30 A.M..  I ate a day old muffin and a Kaiser roll.  I will now shut down the primary Vista computer, and I will go to bed soon.

Note: <888> 03/03/10 Wednesday 11:10 P.M..  After the last note, I watched part of the movie Giant.  I also ate a 10 ounce can of CVS whole cashew nuts.  I went to bed about 5 A.M..  I woke up about 10 A.M. for a computer magazine telephone call.  I finally woke up at 4 P.M..  I ate breakfast of oatmeal with honey and milk and a sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with olive oil, a 50% to 50% mixture of fruit juice punch and cold filtered water, and a cup of coffee with truvia and milk.  I washed the breakfast dishes, and I made my bed.   I showered,  and  I cleaned up.  I chatted with a relative.   I surfed the internet.  I set the apartment radio stereo and the bedroom Lindbergh radio to FM National Public Radio.  I got over a dozen shortwave radio stations this evening.  I threw out the garbage.

I went by the Stop and Shop.  I bought a package of four yesterday muffins for $2, a six  pack of day old Kaiser rolls for $1.25, a 16 ounce two tub package of Smart Balance lite for $2.99 less a $1 off manufacture's store coupon, sliced deli Stop and Shop premium ham for $4.99 a pound for $7.76, slice deli Stop and Shop provolone cheese for $5.99 a pound for $6.17, a 24 ounce family size box of white cheddar Cheezits for $3.99, two 12 ounce bottles of generic honey for $2.49 each, three 64 ounce Ocean Spray cranraspberry juice for $3.49 each, three 64 ounce Ocean Spray crangrape juice lite for $3.49 each, two 48 ounce Quaker old fashioned oatmeal for $4.99 each, a 13 ounce bottle of Kikkoman soy sauce for $2.29, a two pound bag of baby carrots  for $2.99, fresh broccoli crowns for $1.99 a pound for $2.11 less a $3.50 off $40 store coupon for $62.95 total.

I then sat out for a brief while downtown.  I used the bathroom at the senior and the arts center.  It was not very busy downtown.  I then returned home.  I used my cart to bring up my groceries, and I put them away.  Before I went out earlier, I threw out the garbage, and I picked up the mail.  The weather on the internet said we were suppose to have snow showers today and this evening, but it was clear and about 40 degrees Fahrenheit outside.

I will now have a cold slices of eye round of top round of beef and horseradish and Lea and Perrins Worcestershire sauce and steamed vegetable mixture with Smart Balance Spread and olive oil and watered down punch and green tea with truvia and lemon juice.  CIO

Note: <888> 03/03/10 Wednesday 12:35 A.M..  I ran a medium weight electrical wire from the Eton shortwave radio telescoping antenna to the metal ceiling grid to hopefully improve shortwave reception.  I used a paper clamp to secure the wire to the antenna, so it can be released easily for usage elsewhere.  At this time of day, I only get about a half dozen radio stations only on SW1 mostly Spanish or Religious.  I left it set slightly above 570 FM at WNPR which occasionally carries the BBC news broadcast to have available for quiet music listening in the apartment at quiet hours.  On FM, it is as clear as a bell.  Of course I have the wireless headphones connected to my entertainment system, but that might be more complicated to figure out on the spur of the moment.  CIO

On SW1, SW2, and SW3 it gets shortwave stations at this time of day.  I got two Russian Radio stations, a Wayne Green station, and Radio Deutchevella Caribbean relay station.  

The manual gives these two web sites Passport to World Band Radio 2009 and World Radio TV Handbook 2009 Edition by Wrth - Trade Paperback - Random House which might be in the Greenwich Library.

I also took some tin foil, and I made a fan out of it, and I put it on the top of the Eton radio antenna to increase reception.  It works just fine for the price.  I will register it later.  CIO

This traditional New England cottage is available for sale on the Atlantic ocean overlooking the Bush family Walker's Point compound for $2.8 million Kennebunkport Ocean Front Cottage Property details .  I think it belonged to a member of the Scarborough family who passed away recently.  Last summer it was for sale for $4.7 million.  It only has .69 acres.  It is next to the Cape Arundel Inn in one of Kennebunkport's loveliest neighborhoods.

After my appointment, I returned home, and I walked around the building, and they have done a few more windows on the west side.  I picked up my mail.  CIO
