<888> 02/18/14 Tuesday 5:20 P.M. I moved the red light in the bedroom to the pineapple lamp on top of the Dell CPU, and I have it connected to the power strip to the left of the Dell CPU. I also have the Netgear Ethernet switch and T-Mobil Linksys wireless router going in the bedroom. Thus I will try to leave the red light on while I sleep for night light in the bedroom. I put the 15 watt white bulb back in the small lamp at the bedroom entrance with a small white lamp shade on it, which I will no longer leave turned on for a night light. CIO

I put it in the frame with other Christmas Letters from her, which I hang on the back side of the bedroom door.

I put one red light bulb in the small lamp at the bedroom entrance, and I put a small white lamp shade on it. Thus I now have night vision lighting in the bedroom. Since I always keep a white night light in the hallway and one in the kitchen and one in the living room, there is not point in put in more red lights at the moment. Back to the kitchen Roku device.

I have it setup to work off the wired LAN which is always on. The Sony Streaming device is now port 2 working off the wireless which is not always on. The Memorex DVD player is port 3 and the living room cable box is port 4. The port switch device remote has to be pointed at the IR sensor of the left side of the Haier TV screen, or it can be manually switched. I activated the Roku 3000, and I installed its 203 channels and updates. I activated Netflix and www.acorn.tv , and I still have to activate the rest of the channels that need activating after the I finish with the kitchen Roku device. CIO

When I checked out the Truman White House at the Key West Navy Annex during the winter of 1978 with a friend, it appeared to be just a one story two or three bedroom bungalow, and when I walked into it, it was full of termites, and my foot went through the floor. It was well photographed, so I am pretty sure it was it. The Navy base was abandoned with lots of palm frons and coconuts lying all of the place. There were two or three nice houses on the southern tip, with a lot of other abandoned buildings. This is what it looks like today http://www.trumanlittlewhitehouse.com/ . CIO

He lives within range of the building wireless. I downloaded the driver to a pen drive that I had, and I installed it on his computer, and I hooked up the Netgear wireless device. It works just fine. He gets 2 mbps download and 2 mbps upload. I also installed and ran www.ccleaner.com on his computer which a lot of people do not seem to know about. CIO

<888> 02/16/14 Sunday 5:55 P.M. I threw out the garbage. I went downtown to CVS, and I picked up a prescription. I then went by the ATM machine at the Chase Bank at the top of Greenwich Avenue. I then drove further downtown, and I parked in my usual location. There is no point in cleaning off the snow off the benches, since there is too much snow around them. I stopped by Zen Stationary, and I played a Quick Pick Powerball Ticket for $2. I then walked the entire length of Greenwich Avenue and the train station area. I sat out at various places that were clear of snow, but a bit damp. I used the bathroom at Starbucks. I toured CVS again. There are two flyers outside CVS for a Wired Haired Terrier lost in Bruce Park with a thousand dollar reward and a 914 area code. It looks like the dog that won the Westminster Dog Show. The sidewalk at the top of Greenwich Avenue as it turns into West Putnam Avenue is extremely slippery and icy and dangerous. I finished my walk, and I sat out for a while. I then went by the Stop and Shop. I bought a 48 ounce Quaker Old Fashioned oats for $4.24, a quart of Borden's lemon juice for $2.69, a 8.5 ounce bag of Cape Cod Kettle potato chips for $3, bananas for .79 a pound for $2.06, four 19 ounce Stouffer's meat lasagna for $3 each, a six pack of Arnold New York Everything bagels for $3.99, a chicken and scallop potato dinner for $2.49, and 40 cents can return for $30.07 total. I then went by the Putnam Shell at 401 West Putnam Avenue, and I bought $11.02 of self service premium V-Power gasoline for $4.199 a gallon with a dime a gallon off with my Stop and Shop card for 2.624 gallons at odometer reading of 107489 miles for 25.4 miles driven since Friday January 31, 2014 for 9.68 miles per gallon in mostly local traffic.

CIO
<888> 02/15/14 Saturday 8:40 P.M. I chatted with a relative. When I chatted with the walker who lives downtown today, he told me that nobody is cleaning off the snow off the benches downtown. I guess they have to have a town meeting and come up with an executive decision to figure out whom might do it. Maybe they should start charging for people to sit on benches, and then they could afford to pay someone for cleaning the snow off the benches. Also they should shovel pathways to the benches, so one can reach them more easily. I guess with the snow melting a little bit in the daytime and freezing at night, it is quite treacherous out there on the wilds of Greenwich Avenue. I used to go out there in cold weather all of the time around the clock until about a year ago, when I decided I was too old for that adventure. The safest sidewalk in the winter in Manhattan is the sidewalk around the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, because they have steam pipes in the sidewalk to keep it defrosted. Of course that is the high rent district. The cheapest place I know to stay in midtown Manhattan is the http://www.ymcanyc.org/vanderbilt/ which is convenient to Grand Central terminal. Nobody seems to have reason to communicate with me through the internet, so I guess they do not find my content too interesting, although I do have a lot of experience in this area and with the internet. The cheapest place to stay in this area is the http://stamfordymca.org/ . In Elmsford, New York and in Norwalk, Connecticut they have http://www.extendedstayamerica.com/ . More than likely with the colder weather up north, the wild life that is still active will be foraging for food closer to where people live. The http://glorydaysdiner.com/ in Greenwich, Connecticut across the street from the Y.M.C.A. is opened 24 hours on weekends. The pubs in Greenwich close at 2 A.M.. I think www.mcdonalds.com and www.wendys.com are opened until midnight on West Putnam Avenue. Of course in my neck of the woods on West Putnam Avenue, we have three 24 hours gasoline stations with mini marts and a 24 hours CVS, so you know somebody is always moving around in this area. By exit 5 on I-95, we have the Riverside Shopping center with a 24 hour CVS and just to the east a 24 hour Walgreen's and 24 hour Getty gasoline station and 24 hour Mobil station, and a few blocks to the west, there is another 24 hour Mobil station. Unfortunately in central Greenwich downtown after 10 or 11 A.M., there are no grocery stores or gasoline stations opened. I think downtown Starbucks on Greenwich Avenue closes at 11 P.M. on Friday and Saturday nights, and the other nights at 10 P.M.. The Stamford, Connecticut train station is opened 24 hours, but I never checked it out in the early morning hours. The rest areas on I-95 in Darien, Connecticut are opened 24 hours. In the old days, one could try to sneak into the basement of the www.yale.edu law school and sleep on one of their red leather couches in their well heated basement. There is a homeless shelter at Westchester County airport, but one needs to be referred by a Westchester County social services agency. Also in Stamford, Connecticut and Norwalk, Connecticut; they have homeless shelters. Westport, Connecticut has a small homeless shelter for about 25 people near the center of town, but it fills up fast. New York City has a large shelter network, and I think the police are required to round up homeless people in severe cold weather and take them to the shelters. Of course there are always people falling through the cracks of the social services safety net. CIO

<888> 02/14/14 Friday 8:35 P.M. Town of Greenwich Message:
This is an important message from the Greenwich Police Department. Today is Friday, February 14th, 2104.
By unanimous action, effective at 3:00 pm this afternoon the Town of Greenwich Board of Selectmen has lifted the Snow Emergency parking restrictions set in place on Wednesday. Even though the Snow Emergency has been cancelled, small amounts of additional snow are forecast for tomorrow and the Town of Greenwich continues to encourage residents to voluntarily avoid on-street parking as best possible. Many roadways remain narrowed by accumulated snow and ice. Public Works crews will remain at work throughout the weekend removing snow and dressing roads. This work is accomplished much more efficiently when streets are clear of parked vehicles.
Relative to snow removal from private property, residents and especially snow removal contractors are reminded that it is unlawful to deposit any plowed or shoveled snow onto any public street, roadway or sidewalk. Violations of this type are aggressively enforced by the Greenwich Police Department. Violators are subject to a fine of 118 dollars per violation.
Also, and in accordance with Town of Greenwich ordinance, owners and occupants of property with public sidewalks are reminded that they are required to maintain these sidewalks as free from snow and ice. Snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks not later than 18 hours from the time the snow has fallen or the ice has formed.
Finally, with all of the winter weather and cold temperatures many fire hydrants are becoming obstructed under unmelted snow and ice. The Town is encouraging those who have a fire hydrant on their property to help keep it visible and accessible by shoveling it out. Even if you do not have a fire hydrant on your property, please do not be afraid to adopt a nearby fire hydrant in your neighborhood. Ready access to water for firefighting can be a true lifesaver when seconds count.
Spring is just around the corner. Until it gets here, please stay warm, stay safe and have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
Capt. Mark Kordick
Greenwich Police Department
