First Vent! President Obama is supposed to be coming to Boston tomorrow evening. But he is considering changing his plans. If we win the World Series and he is in town, security is going to be a nightmare. Please stay home Mr. President. Let us have our celebration.

Second Vent! We are going to be visited by the "Friends of Suffolk Downs" to talk to us about the casino tonight at five p.m. It will be held down in the community room. Now this room is just big enough to hold only the residents and maybe a guest or two. What someone has not realized is that "The Friends" have been conducting a citywide phone calling thingy and inviting folks from all over Eastie to attend. I am going down, grab my food and sit in a corner to watch the mayhem. Someone didn't think this one out very well. I don't like the idea of folks just walking in off the street. Access to the apartments is just too easy.

Bayer Children's Aspirin, right? Don't they now tell you not to give aspirin to kids?

I agree. Any meeting that includes non-residents should be held in a public hall of some kind.

I'd really pitch a fit, Abbie. First reason, is there is gambling locally, and I've seen a few people on low income lose their low income housing because of gambling.

We have a security guard here so I'm accustomed to the privacy. They had a group of people from a state agency doing a survey about bed bugs, coming door to door, without the customary escort. I didn't let them in and did not participate in their survey. I did let management know I really didn't like them letting strangers knock on my door (not once but three different times, different people.) Their excuse was that they were from an agency of the state, but that wasn't satisfactory to me.

They say to be cautious. It is linked with Reyes Syndrome in kids with or recovering from viral infections like the flu or chicken pox.

I just became rich!

Well, the buffet was rather decent. Finger sandwiches, salad, potato salad, macaroni salad hot coffee. There were only a couple of strangers that I didn't recognize. They left before I did, so they didn't head for the apartments.

I just rolled out of bed. Literally. I fell asleep while watching TV. I was half asleep and went to roll over to get up, and got down instead. Right onto the floor. My bed is very low, so I didn't go far. But I woke up real quick. This is not the first time I have done that. And it probably won't be the last. It is the reason the bed is low. I am fine, no bruises, no broken bones.

I made a discovery today. The pair of glasses I have, I have had the frames for more than three years. I just have new lens put in when a change is needed. I like them and they look good on me. Plus they are a perfect fit. They are designer frames from the Sophia Loren collection.

Usually I just wipe the lens with the skirt of my dress or bottom on any top I am wearing. Tonight I decided to give them a good cleaning. So I was running them under hot water and soap. A glint caught my eye. I called Spike to bring his jewelers loop with him. On each side in the front, right next to the lens and two spots on each temple piece there are total of six diamond chips. I have never noticed them in all the years I have had these frames. I thought they might just be pieces of crystals or CZs. Or even just a diamond cut in the metal piece. I guess this is the start of my diamond collection. First there were the Vanderbilts, but I belong to the VanTrashCan family. I have three diamond chips. I am getting up in the world.

It is late and I am having all sorts of stray thoughts. I must have banged my head when I 'rolled' out of my bed.

We have a case of animal cruelty down in Quincy. I won't give you the details. It is too horrific. I get sick to my stomach just thinking of them. But the culprit has been caught. We went to the expense of the police going out of state to bring him back to face charges. He is being held on $500,000 cash bail. That means that his family or friends, (if he has any) have to come up with $500,00 in hard cash. No bail bondsman. No percentage of the bail. mes from Poland and has been here on an expired visitor's Visa. The dog was named Puppy Doe by the public. Unfortunately Puppy Doe's injuries were so severe that he had to be put down. It was a Pit Bull. He was arraigned today and a bunch of people showed up at the court with their pets to show support for Puppy Doe.

There are none of bad dogs, Addie. It is of very bad people who hurt these precious dogs and cats.

With love,

It was just a quote. I couldn't remember what product it was for. These days, adults are the only ones who use baby aspirin.

Aspirin is not supposed to be used for children who have a fever.
