05/25/24 Saturday 5:40 A.M.  I watched off Netflix, series 3 episode 1 of, "Designated Survivor."  I went outside midway through, and I drank a instant coffee.  I will now go downtown to Green Witch Avenue to hang out with any of the Holiday crowd that might still be around.  Today is the Town of Greenwich Memorial Day Party on the Harbor at Roger Scherman Baldwin park.  Alas as a night person, I will not be attending.  Also it is $500 per person to attend, so maybe somebody here at the Gateway of New England might still have wampum or clam shell which is what they really area.  One can sneak out to Grass Island early to get a place to watch the festivities for free though.  CIO

05/25/24 Saturday 3:55 A.M.  Here is what I looked like in Athens, Greece in the spring of 1972, when I was eating mousaka, souvlaki, and cucumber sandwiches mlsgreece.jpg (837×689) (scott-mike.com)

Here is what I looked like in the Spring of 1968 before I started my senior year at the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut mls1968.jpg (837×689) (scott-mike.com) which was taken in Wellesley, Mass. by Fred Fisher, when my family lived next door to the Dana Hall girls school, and I started working at Polaroid as a research photographer, and I first visited Nantucket that summer.  I used to get around a lot more.  My famous pictures of the Boston Customs building is in the background which was the tallest building at the time in Boston.  I guess Boston got richer.

I will now go outside again.  CIO

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

I will now go outside and drink a instant coffee.  CIO

05/25/24 Saturday 2:10 A.M.  From the northwest corner of the living room to the left of the Samsung television, I moved the Harvard chair with the red cushion to the left side of the hallway entrance in front of the dark pine bookcase.  From there, I moved the bent oak chair with blue cushion to the northwest corner of the living room to the left of the Samsung television in front of the white end table with the Dell 17.3 inch laptop on it.

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

On the east side of Manhattan at www.rockefeller.edu has dining facilities, but they are a bit expensive.  It used to be $2 for a yogurt and a apple at the cafeteria, but I think the dining room is more expensive.  The library there has lots old books on Chinese medicine in Chinese, since around 1909 John D.

Rockefeller gave a hundred million dollars to Chinese Medical Research.  CIO

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

I will now go outside again.  CIO

05/22/24 Wednesday 10:15 P.M.  I went out to www.cvs.com on Greenwich Avenue.  I bought two 12 packs of Fresca and a 12 pack of diet caffeine free www.coke.com for $24.85 total.  I then returned home.  I used my little folding cart to bring up the sofa.  I then put it back in the car.  I sat outside.  I filed this report.  I will now go outside and drink a instant coffee.  CIO

05/22/24 Wednesday 8:05 P.M.  I woke up at 5:30 P.M..  I chatted with a friend for a half hour.  I made my bed.  I went outside.  The order with tracking of Track Package (amazon.com) for Amazon.com : Del Monte Petite Cut Green Beans, 14.5 Oz, (Pack Of 12) : Grocery & Gourmet Food for $12.99 off my State of Connecticut EBT Food Stamps card arrived.  I ate my usual breakfast of pineapple chunks, mandarin oranges, Jimmy Dean sausage egg and cheese croissant, two English  muffins with Smart Balance spread, diet cranberry juice, and a instant coffee outside.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I will now go outside and drink another instant coffee.

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

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

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

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

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

I will now go outside again.  CIO

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

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