01/22/20 Wednesday 11:15 A.M.  Also in the period from 1968 to 1973, when my father was the vice president in charge of manufacturing for Polaroid up in the Boston area, https://www.turnerconstruction.com/ did a lot of their construction.  Also way out in the ocean on www.nantucket.net , the square in downtown Nantucket is called Turner Square.  While at www.lfc.edu from 1968 to 1972, I had a classmate a year ahead of me by the same name Ted Turner, but he had the look of Bill Clinton.  I will now shower and clean up, and I will go downtown to Green Witch Avenue.  CIO

01/22/20 Wednesday 10:35 A.M.  I bought Surge Protector Lightning Deal $22.99 https://www.amazon.com/Huntkey-SMD127-Surge-Protector-Power/dp/B017BE3FXQ/ref=gbps_img_s-5_0f49_c8f98dae?smid=A96RLKIOAYZVY&pf_rd_p=56beed47-26cb-401c-95f5-738a157f0f49&pf_rd_s=slot-5&pf_rd_t=701&pf_rd_i=gb_main&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=SBT9FEAQ8P12H09PENCN and $1.46 tax for $24.45 total.  CIO

01/22/20 Wednesday 10:25 A.M.  When I lived in Manhattan until February 1982, Turner Construction https://www.turnerconstruction.com/ built the new annex to St. Vincent's Hospital in Greenwich Village, and if I am not mistaken, they also built the new Watson Pavilion at the https://www.greenwichhospital.org/ .  For the first six months of 1976, I worked for Daniel Construction out of Greenville, South Carolina as an expeditor, and they were later bought out by www.fluor.com from Irvine, Texas.  My father was one of the original clients of Daniel Construction in the 1950s, when they were building textile factories through out the South Eastern part of the United States.  In the period I was down there occasionally visiting Atlanta, Georgia; is when Ted Turner launched www.cnn.com .  However, the first Cable Television network was the www.cbs.com Cable channel from Atlanta to Greenville, South Carolina which used to be right next to my $150 a month apartment at the Woodbridge Apartments in Greenville, South Carolina; which was also near the local sheriffs office with two hundred sheriff's cars, so we had reasonable security.  How times have changed in the Media.  One of Ted Turner's wives was Jane Fonda whose father Henry Fonda once lived in the Glenville section of Greenwich, Connecticut.  Of course a lot of other media people from around the world seem to also visit this area because, the New York City area is a communications hub of the world.  From my perspective out here in the suburbs anymore, most of the media now seems to be paid advertising.  One family friend in 1973, got me the clerk typist job at the CBS News broadcast center on West 57th Street.  Another family relative's wife's family also used to own the local Greenwich Time, and they donated $100 million to local charities in nearby Stamford, Connecticut including half of which went to the new Stamford Hospital and $10 million to the Whale Presbyterian Church in Stamford.  CIO

01/22/20 Wednesday 9:25 A.M.  I hooked up the ten port USB hub.

Cut and Paste the Text Below here https://www.naturalreaders.com/online/ to listen to it in English.

Translated into English:

The Dutch can differ enormously from each other. But who asks people why they feel connected to the Netherlands, often gets the same answers spontaneously.

Our Dutch language, our democracy,

the equality of everyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation,

hold out together against the water,

the holidays that we celebrate together,

the coziness ...

And there is one word that comes back time and again: freedom. Freedom is the flame that burns in all Dutch hearts. That sounds poetic, but it does justice to what I see around me.

I notice how intensely that freedom is experienced. Now that we are considering 75 years of freedom, I meet many people who tell me what that understanding means to them.

Resistance fighters in their nineties who fought for it in the war. They have put everything at stake. Their life is marked by it.

But also young people. They are happy to live in a free country.

Freedom is never free. She always demands something from us: trust in each other, reasonableness, the willingness to give each other space. Everyone who delves into what freedom is, understands why tolerance is so important. If we start threatening people with a different opinion, we undermine exactly what we hold dear.

To be free, we must allow the transverse thinking. In ourselves and with others.

Freedom also means irrevocable: making choices. In our own life and together. That is difficult, but we do our best. No matter how sharp the contradictions are, it is always possible to find solutions. We will also need that skill in talking to each other and sometimes arranging something in the near future.

A little distance helps to see things in perspective. Many compatriots who live abroad discover with retroactive effect how well our country is organized. The Netherlands is still one of the most successful countries in the world. Behind that success are people like you and you. Millions of professionals and volunteers who make the best of it together in difficult circumstances.

Teachers, police officers, doctors and nurses.

Officials and judges.

Farmers, builders and biologists.

Even though the emotions can sometimes run high, the Dutch still have the feeling that they belong together. That is our great strength. It not only contributes to a country that performs well, but also to a country where people are on average happy.

And yet…

In these days of the year, now that Christmas brings some peace to the hectic pace of everyday life, doubts can also arise. "Am I doing well?" "Do I make the right choices?" "Am I really happy?"

That pursuit of happiness is beautiful, but it should not become an obsession.

Grief may also be there. Doubts and feelings of loneliness may also be there. Failures and setbacks are also part of life.

In the pursuit of happiness and success, we can sometimes pass by ourselves. As free people, we want to get the best out of life, and blame ourselves if that doesn't work. We mirror ourselves to others, set the bar high and like to present a perfect version of ourselves to the outside world. As if there is a taboo on uncertainty and shortcomings.

But nobody is perfect.

Fortunately.

I also say this to young people. Don't worry too much if things go wrong. Give yourself some space. It's okay.

Happiness cannot be forced. It is elusive. It suddenly comes as a gift from heaven.

When we consider what makes us most happy, almost everyone gives the same answer: the people around me. Family and friends, but also people you might hardly know and who are just nice to you.

Happiness is in our connection with others. Let us therefore not let each other go. Let us listen to each other and show understanding. Let us comfort and encourage each other. It helps if someone looks at you and says to you, "It's good."

With a listening ear, an outstretched hand or an arm around the shoulder, we give each other the most beautiful gift that a person can give to a person. Not only this Christmas, but also afterwards.

I wish you all - wherever you are and regardless of your personal circumstances - a blessed Christmas.

01/16/20 Thursday 12:30 A.M.  After the last note, I drove downtown to the Board of Education parking lot.  I bought the www.starbucks.com Grande Butterscotch frapucinno with Splenda artificial sweetener for $5.31, but I got it for free with the points on my Starbucks card.  I then sat outside chatting with another Starbucks regular.  I then used the bathroom at Starbucks.  I then drove to www.cvs.com on Greenwich Avenue.  I bought buy one get one free of CVS Glucosamine and Chondroitin triple strength 240 caplet for $70.79 with $25 off with three different CVS coupon machine coupons for $46.79 total.  I then went to the Stop and Shop at 161 West Putnam Avenue, and I bought a 8 pack of Jimmy Dean frozen sausage, egg, and cheese croissants for $11.99, five Stauffer's Lean Cuisine 10.5 ounce Chicken Parmesan for $2 each, a half gallon of unsweetened vanilla almond milk for $3.74, two 12 ounce packages of Sabrets bun size hotdogs for $4.99 each package, and a reduced merchandise package of 12 Stop and Shop hotdog buns for $1.34 for $37.05 total.  I then returned home.  I sat outside.  I put away my purchases.  I went outside, and I put the green bag back in the car, and I drank an instant coffee.  I then setup of the eleventh red case Microsoft Surface RT in front of the Apple Imac late 2013 on the right side of the oak dining table.  It was in the Greenwich Time yesterday that the Apple store nearby in Stamford, Connecticut will be closing; so I guess the Greenwich Avenue store will be a bit busier.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

!!!!!! 01/15/20 Wednesday 1:25 A.M.  I went outside again.

I was just doing some routine work on my primary work computer with Outlook 365.

Suddenly the Optimum Mail server, my internet service provider posted over a thousand

Old emails over a year old.  With a 400 mbps second connection, it took an hour to download

Them all again.  I have my Outlook 365 settings set to delete email from the server as I

Download them.  One can delete the bulk email in Outlook 365 by high lighting the first email and

Pressing the shift key and then the last or oldest email high lighting it and pressing the shift key again

And then pressing the delete key to get rid of them.  I am not a heavy email user.  If this

Has happened to all of the Optimum users in the Greater New York City, when they all try to

Download their old emails again some with slower connections, it will probably bring the

Internet to a stand still in this area with millions of users.  Thus I would consider it possibly

A Cyber Attack of unknown origin.  Optimum is owned by Altice a Dutch company, so possibly

Somebody outside the USA did something with their servers.  That is all that I know.

01/01/20 Wednesday 12:25 A.M.  Happy News Years.  I went outside again.  Right at midnight, when I was watching a few fire works, a big German Shepard looking dog or wolf crossed the driveway at the entrance to the ice skating rink about a hundred yards away from me.  It was large enough, I do not think it was a smaller coy wolf or large coyote, so it might have been a real wolf.  I printed out my Microsoft Sunset Income versus Spending report for December 2019, and I have it ready to mail with a fifty cent forever stamp.  I will now shut down the primary work computer, and I will go to bed.  Je pense El Lobo est ici.  CIO
