10/20/17 Friday 7:10 A.M.  I went outside, and I chatted with the morning crew.  I will now shut down the primary work computer, and I will go to bed.  CIO

10/20/17 Friday 6:20 A.M.  On Acorn TV, I watched episode 4 of Penelope Keith's "At Her Majesty's Service".  I will now go outside again.  CIO

10/20/17 Friday 5:20 A.M.  When I went outside again, I could still hear something moving in the woods by the east side picnic benches.  This time of year, when it starts to get colder, the wild animals start migrating south through this area.  There are a lot of wild animals to the north of us.  About four years ago in August, I even saw a small young black puma outside the east side of our building.  Maybe something bigger scared the coyote out of the woods.  I know a lot of New York City people drop their pets off in this area, when they can no longer care for them, and sometimes even babies.  Possibly some terrorist group is dropping off wild animals, but from what I know there are plenty to the north of us.  I think that is why some people live out on Long Island.  I once saw a orange and black timber wolf by the downtown Old Greenwich railroad bridge after Tod's Point flooded in Hurricane Gloria like it had been living out there and was flooded out.  Sometimes people even adopt stray pets that are wild animals.  CIO

10/20/17 Friday 4:55 A.M.  I took a 5.4 ounce Knorr teriyaki flavored rice mixture, and I put it in my microwave wave rice cooker with a tablespoon of olive oil and 2 cups of water, and I microwaved it for 12 minutes stirring it half way through.  I ate half of it, and I refrigerated the other half in a Rubbermaid container.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

10/20/17 Friday 4:25 A.M.  I went outside again.  It is all quiet on the extreme southwestern border of Connecticut, but at his hour of the morning, one can always start hearing a lot of traffic headed into the Big Apple.  CIO

 

10/20/17 Friday 4:05 A.M.  Since August 1989, or 338 months.  I have spent and received at my home office without rent being mentioned:

Income:  $604.44 from Internet Advertising.

$2517.18 from computer items sold.

$2006.18 in Computer Rebates

Subtotal:  $5,127.80

$25201.17  Electrcity mostly at night plus heating and cooling and hot water and refrigerator.

$621.63  Furnishing Unassigned

Subtotal:  $118,876.24

 

Total:$113,748.44

Divided By 338 Months Equals  $336.54 a month.  It was not cheap on my income.  Also a lot of the electronics and computer equipment have been gotten rid of over time.  For the cost of running a home office, I could have owned a cheap house elsewhere. 

Thus running a home office since August 1989 has not been cheap, and has cut into most of my spare disability income funds.  Of course some of the expenses like electricity, I would have had anyway.  Thus telling poor people to work on the internet is not always a viable alternative, if they do not want to sacrifice.  CIO

When this happened https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1883_eruption_of_Krakatoa , it snowed in Connecticut in July the following year.  I once saw a photograph taken of about 50 white people in Connecticut at that time, and their faces are all black covered with coal soot and wood burning ash which they burned to keep warm back then.  Back then, they only took a bath once a week, usually on Saturdays before Church on Sundays.  The after effect was even a 10 foot snow fall in New York City.  The is book https://www.amazon.com/Krakatoa-World-Exploded-August-1883/dp/0060838590 is a pretty good summary of what happened.  I went through http://scott-mike.com/bf.htm .  CIO

10/20/17 Friday 2:40 A.M.  When I was sitting on the bench of the north side of the building, I was staring at two planets or stars in the clear Eastern sky.  What was strange is they both appeared to have rings around them like Saturn.  I had heard something moving in the woods on the east side of the building, so I sat there.  About that same time a coyote ran by me from the woods about 20 feet away headed down to the Byram River.  The original computer BBS, when I got a PC DOS computer in the fall of 1990 was out of Old Greenwich with lots of shareware astronomy files.  The operator of it supposedly ended up at an observatory in Argentina.  CIO

10/20/17 Friday 2:15 A.M.  I made a sandwich with lightly toasted 15 grain bread, four deli slices of roast beef interlaced with four half slices of Swiss cheese with Hellmann's olive mayonnaise and Gold's Hot Horseradish and ground black pepper.  I ate it with five ounces of Cole Slaw and a baby Kosher dill pickle and a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

10/14/17 Saturday 5:55 A.M.   Back in August 1989, I bought my first personal computer an Apple IIe for a $100 at a tag sale on lower Round Hill Road from somebody from Belgium that worked for J.P. Morgan.  However, I had computer experience before that.  While working as an independent contractor at the Polaroid Waltham, Massachusetts manufacturing facility, I learned COBOL from IBM manuals, and I wrote a spread sheet to work on IBM 360.  Once I wrote the code on computer sheets, I had to enter it into punch cards, and they ran it on the big www.ibm.com 360 main frame.  Later that year, I got three credits for an independent studies program at Lake Forest College, so I graduated in June of 1972 with my degree.  However, Lake Forest College wanted $7,500 for the course credits which I did not take on campus, which my family could not afford to pay.  Thus until age 65, Lake Forest College would never release my college transcript whenever I job hunted.  It is here http://scott-mike.com/lfctr1.jpg and http://scott-mike.com/lfctr2.jpg .  Also, when I took a weekend off after writing the transcript, I hitchhiked down to Cape Cod, and I camped out on the beach for a few days in Chappaquiddick in the rain.  I was lucky because there were jeep tracks all around my sleeping bag.  I also at one time walked from Edgartown to Gay Head which is a long walk.  Later on in the summer of 1971, my youngest sister and myself were invited to the Watson family debutante party at the St. Regis roof, and I escorted a friend of mine's youngest sister Jenny Warburg.  We changed clothes at the Warburg Chateau around East 65th Street.  I had such a good time, I sort of forgot what the Watson family members looked like.  I once got into the old fashioned elevator of the St. Regis roof with a 180 degree handle, and in walked Thomas Watson Junior and his younger brother Arthur Watson.  Since the elevator operator was not there, I gave them the ride of their life to the ground floor.  It was sort of amusing in that I found a parking place right in front of the St. Regis Hotel for my mother's new 1971 Monte Carlo.  At the end of the party, I drove my sister and myself back up to Weston, Massachusetts, where we lived.  When I first bought the personal computer in August 1989, I sold it a few month later for a $170 profit, and I bought a Compaq 286 for $250 from a tag sale in New Canaan.  I was online with BBS telephone lines so much that I ran up a $750 long distance telephone bill, and I lost my telephone for two and a half years.  When I finally got my telephone back, after the Department of Social Service paid my telephone bill, I got online with the internet via Netcom via the local telephone line, so my charges were less.  In the early years of the internet, I started publishing my internet directory.  The internet directory was made by collecting the bookmarks and saving them with Netscape.  I would then edit the save file with the IBM OS/2 Boxer editor which I had on a dual boot machine.  I then would reedit them with a regular HTML web publisher.  Since web site addresses change all of the time, it was quite tedious, and I quit the directory over ten years ago, when Google came along.  Also, I could never afford to buy a $250 CGI script search engine to have on my server for a search engine.  Also the Server and Work computers were constantly hacked, which lead me to making lots of backups of new installs.  In the early days, I heard from Bill Gates twice, and the second email was in PGP encryption which I did not know how to decode.  I also heard from Tim Berners Lee twice, and he told me to keep it up.  I think I once I heard from Mark Zuckerberg, when I emailed him about how good Instant Messenger was from AOL.  That was before he went to www.harvard.edu .  When I used to go to White Plains, New York to network at night, someone gave a friend of mine the Seattle, Washington Chamber of Commerce video tape.  Also in White Plains, New York there was somebody that looked like Steve Jobs who was Westport, Connecticut who told me his father was the head of personnel for IBM.  He could afford to play the 50 cent computer games.  When I went to Albertville, France in 1992 for the Winter Olympics, I did find any computer stores in Paris, but a lot of the windows had Apple Macintoshes in them.  On the same trip, when I visited Amsterdam, Holland, I found three small computer shops that mostly sold printers.  I used to fix old printers.  I chatted with someone that looked like Bill Gates at a pub in Amsterdam, and he told me was not really that rich.  I figured that by pretending to be rich like Howard Hughes, he was just buying flight insurance.  The Winter Olympics back then was run on thousands of miles of Optic Fibers.  Today, I guess it is all wireless.  Also on New Years Eve in 1974, a friend that worked at Daly's Dandelion next to Ford Modeling introduced me to Olive Watson the oldest daughter while they were walking around Greenwich Village.  Also Fred Von Mierers introduced me to David May who lived in Greenwich Village and did Public Relations for IBM.  In the period from November 1980 to February 1982, when I frequently visited a student video pub, they were always showing film clips of Charlie Chaplin and Joan Rivers and other celebrities.  I did not know that IBM was using a Charlie Chaplin look a like to advertise IBM, since I did not have a television, although my roommate at the time worked in Cyrus Vance's law firm across the street from the IBM building at 57th Street and Madison Avenue.  When I returned to Greenwich from Nantucket in December 1983, and in June of 1984 I moved to a studio apartment at 700 Steamboat Road for four and a half years before moving to Byram public housing.  Since I lived closed to the pier on Steamboat Road, I covered it for about thirty years, and until it got too expensive to drive down there.  I always tried to point out the Watson family house to many visitors which one could see clearly from the pier, but most people were interested in Victor Borge's house just north of it.  A long time Danish pen pal, once emailed me that Madsen Shipping in Denmark was the largest stockholder in IBM.  The New York Times about 20 years ago wrote that older man in his 90s out on Long Island was the largest individual stockholder in IBM with more stock than the Watson family.  We all know whom the rich families are out on the Gold Coast of Long Island, but I am not sure which one it might have been.  Around 1987, IBM in White Plains, New York interviewed me for a job in their legal department for six months, but they told me that my college Lake Forest College would not release my transcript.  My internet notes pretty much say everything else.  Also on the night Tom Watson Junior died, I was having New Years Eve dinner at the Homestead Inn in Belle Haven with a friend at $250 a head.  CIO

10/14/17 Saturday 4:10 A.M.  I only drove a yellow cab in Chicago, Illinois back around Christmas Time in 1972.   That was the day, E. Howard Hunt's wife's United flight fell out of the sky over the south side of Chicago with all of the hundred dollar bills.  My first fare that day, I was sent out to Chicago O'Hare airport, and I waited in the taxi line for a long time.  The fare was a British gentleman that looked like Prince Phillip, and I drove him the scenic route along Lake Michigan to the Drake Hotel http://www.thedrakehotel.com/ .  Thus if it were Prince Phillip, I could also call myself a British Royal family chauffeur too.  The Drake Hotel was John D. Rockefeller's legal address for tax purposes.  CIO

10/14/17 Saturday 4:00 A.M.  I went outside again.  It has started to rain.  I took a 5.4 ounce Knorr chicken fried rice flavored rice mixture, and I put it in my microwave wave rice cooker with a tablespoon of olive oil and 2 cups of water, and I microwaved it for 12 minutes stirring it half way through.  I ate half of it, and I refrigerated the other half in a Rubbermaid container.  I ate it with a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  CIO

10/14/17 Saturday 2:55 A.M.  Back in 1971, when I was a student at www.lfc.edu , I was driving a Lake Forest, Illinois yellow cab to earn a little extra money.  I drove a 1960s three speed stick on column yellow Chrysler sedan.  I was one of the taxi cab company's expert snow drivers, and I used drive lots of fares to O'Hare airport in the snow in the winter, which was only about 25 minutes away.  One early Sunday morning, I was dispatched to the servants' entrance at the Armour Estate in Lake Bluff, Illinois https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lester_Armour_House , and my fare was one of the maids of the house who was very chatty.  I took her to the Lake Forest, Illinois Roman Catholic Church.  She told me along the way her mistress Lacey Armour was a niece of Czar Nicholas II, and had escaped the Russian Revolution by being in Monte Carlo, where she married Lester Armour.  Later, when I graduated from Lake Forest College, I went to the White Elephant Thrift Shop in Chicago, Illinois, and for $5, I bought Lester Armour's Cummerbund Tuxedo Vest for $5, which fit me when I weighed 130 pounds, so Lester Armour despite his meat packing fortune was not a large person.  It gets real cold out in Lake Forest, Illinois like Russia.  In Libertyville, Illinois they had a Serbian Orthodox Church, where King Peter of Yugoslavia was buried.  I attended that funeral, since it was near my rental farm in Knollwood, Illinois.  Thus technically, I could be one of the Romanoff chauffeurs, but I do not know if I ever met any.  In one pub that I used to frequent in Greenwich Village in the early 1970s, they used to celebrate Russian Orthodox Christmas.  CIO

10/09/17 Monday 11:40 P.M.   I threw out the garbage.  I went downtown to www.cvs.com .  I first sat out in the park across the street.  I then picked up a prescription.  I bought a 16 ounce bag of Blue Diamond Smoke House almonds for $5.99 and a 31 ounce container of Folgers's Country Roast coffee for $5.99 for $11.98 total.  I then bought two tins of one pound Danish cookies for $2.99 each for $5.98 total.  I then drove further down Greenwich Avenue.  I walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue.  I sat out at various locations.  www.starbucks.com has a sign in their window that they need help.  The Putnam restaurant on lower Greenwich Avenue needs a cook.  I used the bathroom at Starbucks.  Across the street from the Terra Restaurant just north of St. Mary's, there is a sign at the doorway for a one bedroom apartment for $1,750 a month.  It looks like in the store on the north side of the little park across the street from CVS, they are opening some sort of clothing store there.  After I finished my walk, I sat out for a while.  I then returned home, and I chatted with neighbors.

10/09/17 Monday 7:45 P.M.  I drank my coffee outside.  I washed the breakfast dishes.  I made my bed.  If one needs auto part, and one can not find them at www.autozone.com , J.C. Whitney http://www.jcwhitney.com/ has a large inventory including older vehicles parts in their warehouse in Chicago, Illinois.  I once thought about buying those big white wall balloon tires for my old Mercedes 1952 300 B, while I was out there in college at www.lfc.edu .  I learned back in 1968 to 1972, people in the military were allowed to bring back a foreign car from overseas, and the used car lots out there were full of foreign cars.  I learned to get a vintage 1950s Mercedes going, all one had to do was sand the fuse box terminals underneath the hood with steel sand paper, and then put in new Bosch fuses, and most everything would work.  In Europe they do not use salt on the roads like America, which caused the fuse box terminals to corrode.  I owned four old Mercedes out there while in college.  One even came from the palace in Athens, Greece with the flag staffs on it.  However, what I did not know was that one had to change the oil and oil filter every three thousand miles which lead to trouble down the road.  CIO

10/09/17 Monday 6:00 P.M.  I woke up at 5 P.M..  I chatted with a relative.  I went outside, and I chatted with a neighbor.  I did not get any mail today, because today is Columbus Day Holiday.  It is also when the summer people leave www.nantucket.net to discover America.  I will now eat breakfast of oatmeal with Equal sweetener and milk and sliced banana, a toasted English muffin with Smart Balance spread and preserves, a 12 ounce glass of 50% punch and 50% cold filtered water, a cup of coffee with Equal sweetener and milk, and vitamins and supplements.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

10/09/17 Monday 4:30 A.M.  My last roommate in Manhattan could type 185 words per minutes on the original word processing machines and had attended www.brown.edu .  He ex-husband looked like Ernest Hemingway and worked his way up as a software engineer in the State Department in Libya, Thailand, and Saudi Arabia, and also attended www.brown.edu .  The roommate's mother's mother was from the Kaiser of Germany's consulate in Manhattan from before World War I.  The fellow at East 49th Street spoke nine different languages fluently, and had lived with the Krup family of Germany in Germany.  Quite a few of his visitors were young Germans attending www.columbia.edu business school.  I do not know German, so I never knew what they were talking, although some people since I am half Dutch think I look German.  I first visited Germany in December 1980 for a few days on a $100 Capitol airline jet each way to Frankfurt.  Around 1987, I visited Innsbruck, Austria in the winter taking Lufthansa from J.F.K. to Düsseldorf and changing planes to Munich and a bus to Innsbruck.  A lot of the security people in Munich airport had my look.  My art teacher at the University of Grenoble school in Florence, Italy was also from Munich in 1972.  I have said many times, I have been as far north as Olso, Norway in February, 1983; as far east as Istanbul, Turkey in May 1972; as far south as Trinidad and Tobago in the winter of 1971 and 1970, and as far west as Maui in Hawaii in August of 1980.  I do not think I have ever been in a communist country.  However, my last trip to Europe was in February 1992, when I attended the Albertville, France Winter Olympics and toured around, so I drove along the French German border in France which is full of nuclear power plants, because France is 85% nuclear power.  Of course the people at the Winter Olympics were from everywhere in the world.  The biggest contestants were from Austria that I saw, and the biggest spectators were from Bergen, Norway.  There were a lot of famous people there.  2.5 billion watch the Winter Olympics on television, so back then they had 50,000 communications people for optic fibers, and they also had 50,000 security people.  The French know how to throw a party.  A lot of the U.S.A. companies were represented there, since they have European operations, and they spent the money there instead of bringing the money back to the U.S.A. to pay taxes on it.  CIO

10/09/17 Monday 3:55 A.M.  I ate a 9.5 ounce Banquet Swedish meatballs dinner with a 12 ounce glass of diet Fresca.  I will now go outside again.  CIO

10/09/17 Monday 3:20 A.M.  While at www.lfc.edu in Lake Forest, Illinois, one of my roommates on the Farm in 1971, was Barry Cerf.  His mother was Phyllis Cerf who was married to Robert Wagner former mayor of New York City who also attended the Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut.  While at Taft, I knew Bob Sweet whose father was Deputy Mayor of Manhattan in the Lindsey administration and is still a Federal Judge on the Bench in Manhattan.  I once visited their townhouse on the East Side.  While at Lake Forest College from 1968 to 1972, Robert Morganthau's daughter was in my class.  Robert Morganthau was the long time district attorney in Manhattan.  In 1973, while in Manhattan, I was working as a clerk typist for commercials at the CBS Broadcast Center on West 57th Street for $85 a week before tax.  The owner of the apartment at 420 East 49th Street was supposed to be taking over Billy Baldwin's Interior decorating business.  I just answered his phone and did errands and explore Manhattan.  During the periods I lived in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time in the daytime walking around the Metropolitan Museum of Art in a three piece Brooks Brother's tweed suit.  When on West 74th Street, my roommate who was the mother of a friend of mine had been secretary to the Dean of the Business School at New York University and when I was living with her, she was the head of Word Processing for Cyrus Vance's law firm across the street from the IBM Building after he was Secretary of State in the Carter administration.  I also spent a lot of time walking her white German Shepard and her Doberman Pincher in Riverside Park and around Central Park.  CIO

10/09/17 Monday 2:50 A.M.   I lived in Manhattan from January to June 1973 at East 89th Street near Gracie Mansion and West 9th Street just west of Fifth Avenue.  I used a friend's apartment in Manhattan frequently from October 1973 to February 1975 at 420 East 49th Street.  Also during that period, I also lived at West 20th Street during the winter of 1974 across the street from the Anglican Seminary.  I also lived in Manhattan at West 74th Street near Riverside Park from November 1980 to February 1982 next to the Newport Jazz Festival building.  I also lived for a week or two on East 52nd Street above an Episcopal Church during February 1982, when it was 26 degrees Fahrenheit below zero.  When I was homeless, and I came off Nantucket in  December 1983 after a side trip to Toronto, I stayed for about two weeks at the East Side Airline terminal building before returning to Greenwich, Connecticut, where my family has lived on and off since June 1962.  My stepfather's family have lived here since about 1900, and once were involved with Town Government.  One of my stepfather's uncles while on the Representative Town Meeting got the Town of Greenwich to buy Todd's Point beach property from Presbyterian St. Luke's Hospital in Manhattan in the 1930s.  I once was a neighbor of Lowell Weicher's from 1962 to 1968 when he was the first selectman of Greenwich, and a lot of people knew, since we would car pool with his family to Greenwich Country Day School.  I frequently would drive into nearby Manhattan at night until around July 1990, when I was mugged by someone from Dublin, Ireland and Bermuda.  I quit visiting Manhattan regularly after that.  As I recall, I have only been there about five times since the mugging.  The last time was about 9.5 years ago.  I have a younger relative working and living there and two old friends that live there six months of the year.  CIO

10/05/17 Thursday 5:05 A.M.  Back in 1973 to 1975, the old Lums hotdog restaurant in Manhattan across from the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Federal Building at around Third Avenue and East 55th Street used to look like the modern www.apple.com stores.  I think there is a 24 hour www.mcdonalds.com there now, the last I looked about 20 years ago.  There are a lot of young people in that area, because the Kips Bay Boys Club is near Beekman Place and East 49th Street, and as I recall the Vanderbilt Y.M.C.A. was at around East 47th Street and Second Avenue.  Well young people frequently have to eat.  However, the best deal in 1973 to 1975 was on East 65th Street and York Avenue at www.rockefeller.edu , anyone could walk into cafeteria and get a Dannon yogurt, apple, and 8 ounce container of milk for about $2.  They also have a helicopter pad on the East River near by, if one needs to leave town in a hurry.  They have a veterinary research school at Rockefeller University.  CIO
