Schemes and Scams, 3D

June 28, 2005

     I am in such financial ruin that I am even looking in the dumpsters for bottles and cans.   I call myself a 3D (dumpster diving dummy).    It is really bad the way I have turned out.  I keep trying to climb out of the hole I dug but all I do is succumb to almost every scheme and scum out there.

June 29, 2005

     I spent another six hours out at the air museum taking visitors through the B-17 bomber we have there.

June 30, 2005

     We held a patio sale and I got rid of a lot of junk.  I put most of the proceeds in my 'piggy bank.'
I just finished reading "Nightmare on Iwo" by Patrick F. Caruso.  He was there!  Joan and I went to the movie and saw the film "War of the Worlds".  Afterward we had dinner at 'Outback'.

July 2, 2005

     That little girl who was missing in Idaho in May, turned up in the hands of a child molester.  He is accused of murdering the girl's mother, her boyfriend and her two siblings..
     George W. Bush is still spitting out his lies. There is no end to our troubles in Iraq and Afghanistan.  In fact the situation is getting darker by the day!

Koran, Christian Fundamentalists, Islamic Fundamentalists

June 26, 2005

     While reading the 'Koran' and attending that book signing on Thursday, I have been philosophizing some more.  We hear and read daily about the Islamic Fundamentalists.  What about all the Christian fundamentalists in World history.  A few of the examples are the Roam Catholic Church in their hunt for the Huguenots in southern France in the 16th Century or the Spanish inquisition in the 13th Century.  Then all we hear is about the Islamic terrorists and insurgents.  Who were the 'Knights Templar'? Who were many of the Christian missionary groups?
     The religious right in America today is trying to overturn the progress we have made since 1776.  They can be called the Christian Fundamentalists!

The temperature, Earthquake, CIA, Eating Out

June 20, 2005

     The temperature is going back up.  Luckily for us, our new Central Air Conditioner is keeping the place really cool.  Yesterday morning another 5.0 earthquake hit in the ocean about 120 miles west of Eureka, CA.  As of yet no real damage has been reported.
     Porter Goss, present 'peter principle' boss of the CIA claims he knows where Osama Bin Laden is hiding.  I doubt it!  He, Mr. Goss, couldn't even find his pants after spending the night with his girlfriend.
     Yesterday was 'Father's Day' and Joan took me out for dinner.  She knows how I love German food, so we went to '' in downtown Palm Springs.  I had a bottle of good German 'Kabinett' wine -$18.  We both had a very fair salad - $24 for both.  I had a beef 'Jaeger' Schnitzel and Joan had a Pork Tenderloin -about $47 for both.We shared a dessert for $11.  The bill was $100.20 plus $14.80 tip, never, never again!

June 23, 2005

     The young girl from Alabama is still missing on the island of Aruba.  My guess is that they will never find her.  The four suspects will either go on trial or be set free if no corpse is found.
     In the evening I attended my first book reading at the Peppertree bookstore in downtown Palm Springs.  The author, Reza Aslan, talked about his book, "No god but God" I bought a copy and will read it after I finish reading the Koran.  I think every American should read the Koran in order to understand what we are up against.
     I again shot off my mouth in stating or asking, can we say that the Judeo (Jewish-Christian) religion has become the religion of the HAVES and the Islamic religion is that of the HAVENOTS?  I also stated to him that, my friend, Karl Marx wrote in his 'Communist Manifesto' , "Religion is the opium of the people".  That remark probably gave him the impression that I ma a communist.  Wrong agai, but that is life!  Always agree and say YES!

Earthquake and Job Hunting

June 19, 2005

     Yesterday there was another small earthquake by Yucaipa, CA.  It was between 3.5 and 4.5.  We didn't feel it here.
     Last night saw the 48 hour mystery on TV about a Peace Corp volunteer who murdered another volunteer, a young woman,  on the island of Tonga and got away with it.  The TV showed him walking around his home in the east without a care in the world.  It would be great to execute him for his crime, that is if I had the money.
     Today is 'Father's Day', what a joke!  I don't have anything to celebrate about.  My daughter Heike has now distanced herself from me too.  There is absolutely nothing and nobody left from my 27 years in Germany, except a few photos.  Joan is taking me out for dinner tonight.
     I applied for a job at Lowe's and I am waiting for a call.  I have a deep feeling that the psychological test I took will disqualify me because it will show that I am definitely not 'yes' man and because I am against 'peter principle' and unqualified leadership, I will not hear anything.

June 12, 2005

     While I was in the kitchen at around 8:45 AM, it began to really shake, rattle and roll here.  We were experiencing a 5.6 earthquake centered up on the mountain by Anza on the San Jacinto fault.  I shook, the cups and plates in the cupboard rattled and Joan rolled out of bed, scared silly!

June 14, 2005

     There have been over 100 after shocks from that earthquake on Sunday.  None of which were felt here in Palm Springs.  They downgraded that earthquake from 5.6 to 5.2.
     Yesterday Michael Jackson, the king of Pop and an accused pedophile was found innocent of all the charges against him.  NOTE:  What will the news junkies think up next.  They sure like to ruin an individual like Michael.
     I had a funny dream this morning.  I dreamt that GOD finally saw in me a chance of doing some good in HIS world.  He granted me the grand prize in the California lottery.  I kept quiet until I received that $95,000 check from the trial, then I donated it to St. Jude's Children Hospital.  I also pack up everything here, sold the place.  I then gave the proceeds from the sale to the K.I.A. Fund of Iraq.  Dream on old man!

June 15, 2005

     Another quake by Eureka, CA.  It measured 7.0.

June 16, 2005

     Yet another quake, this time by Yucaipa, CA, which is less than 40 miles from here.  It happened around 2 PM and scored 4.9.  I was having lunch at a 'Burger King'.  Then at 11:30 PM another quake was felt up around Crescent City, CA.  It too was around 7.0.  Joan's nerves are really on edge.

Pearl Harbor Map, Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, Senor Bush

May 27 to May 29, 2005

     I went out to the Air Museum and put up a new map on the window to the Pearl Harbor Display. My new map showed all the ships that were in Pearl Harbor on that "Day of Infamy".  My reasoning was to educate the visitor by telling them that not only were battleships there but other ships as well.  It was laminated.  Well, it remained on the glass for about three or four days.  Then one busy body who is still there in 2014, took it upon himself to remove it with the explanation that it had not been approved by Ms. McGuire, the manager.  This action brought an end to my volunteering out there. Again another stupid "peter principle" A.H. who didn't like anyone to trump him.  His last name begins with J.

May 29, 2005

     This is "Memorial Day" weekend.  I am reading "Flags of Our Fathers" by James Bradley.  On February 24, I gave a speech commemorating the flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima.  In my short speech, I said, "I know there were not many Japs on Iwo Jima, they were all in Iwo Jima".  I derived this from several sources, but I thought I had formed this phrase by myself.  Now I just read on page 143 of "Flags of Our Fathers", the same phrase that was coined by a pilot on Saipan at the time.
     It is a little cooler today.  The little money I have is slowly running out.  My trial over my mother's estate is stuck and going nowhere.  My memoirs are not selling either.
     Senor Bush is still there and is causing more problems than he is worth.  His puppet master - Karl Rove, is doing a good job remaining in the background, just like Martin Bormann, the grey Eminence of Adolf Hitler.

June 8, 2005

     I was out at the Air Museum in the afternoon and more or less cleared up my paranoid feelings about the place and the people there.  I must stop thinking that I can improve the museum when nothing can be improved there.  Like everything else, certain people have the say, and they refuse to let anyone change their ignorant and set ways.  Sharon McGuire is just one, not just in the museum but all over.  Peter Principle reigns!

It Happened and I couldn't forgive or forget

May 5, 2005

     I didn't want to bother anyone with my trials and tribulations but I guess I can't forget or forgive!

     I spent another night with little sleep.  Today I have another deposition and it caused my nerves to go haywire again.  Thoughts of death, revenge, hate and disgust kept me awake.  I went to bed around 11 PM and slept until about 1 AM.  Then I was awake from 1 AM to after 3 AM.  I dozed off some but not a deep sleep.  I even tried to hypnotize myself to sleep, but that didn't work.   I drove over to Sossin's office, the little weasel.  I sat in the parking lot until about 11 AM, waiting for my lawyer Tim Ash.
     I had plenty of time so I scanned through most of the paperwork which had been Karem's file.  Ken Karem was my first lawyer who messed everything up, who took money to throw the case and I found out later that he knew absolutely nothing about Trusts and Wills.  There were a lot of letters and written statements in his papers that he never informed me about.
     Tomorrow, Ms. Maceroni, his co-lawyer and he himself will give their depositions.
     Sossin drilled me today and I am proud to say, I held my ground and my head high.  Then Mr. James Finney, the facilitator from September 28, 2004 gave his deposition.  We thought he might hurt our case but to the contrary, his lack of memory helped us.

May 6, 2005

     This morning we had some more  depositions.  Present were the weasel (Sossin), the lying bitch (Kimberly Sue Davis, AKA, my niece), Tim Ash (my lawyer, the Court Recorder, My first lawyer (Ken Karem), his co-lawyer (Patricia Maceroni) and myself.
     The weasel attempted to get Ken Karem to admit that a paper I had signed was a legal document. He tried but his memory played games with him.  Then my new lawyer, Tim Ash, cross examined Mr. Karem and the both of them almost got into a fist fight.
     Ms. Maceroni's memory was about the same as Karem's. After the deposition, in the parking lot, my lawyer advised me to go after Karem for malpractice.

From May 8 to May 16, 2005

     I studied and studied for the California Real Estate Examination.  I really put my nose to the grind stone.
On May 16, I took the exam in San Bernadino with about 100 applicants. The test was 150 multiple choice and took over three hours.  I failed by 3 or 4 points, so I guess I will not retake the test or proceed in Real Estate.
