We have a ‘young lady’, living here at the Desert SandsGolf Course on a FIXED income, that has a very impressive TV setup.
She loves to watch ‘Wheel of Fortune’ and other game shows like, ‘Jeopardy’. It is the Movies that really will open alot of eyes at her home. Imagine what 12 months of Home Box Office or the Turner Movie Channel would do for her ‘life style change’?
Alas, she has no channels other than the the so called local channels delivered digitally by our beloved FCC. I have urged her to pursue a DirecTV solution, but her answer has always been,
“John, I have NO money for that!”
Desert Sands Clubhouse
Well here is the beginning of our NEW project for visitors here at this website.
(Those of you familiar with the United States JayCee’s Planning Guides may reconize this; “Planning Guide” as it unfolds;
To deliver DirecTV to a neighbor at an essentially very low or FREE cost.
To promote the health and welfare of our LOCAL community (Desert Sands Golf Course at Sossaman & Baseline in Mesa, AZ) and to live comfortably among amiable neighbors, eating warm food, sleeping indoors and making NEW friends every day.
Also we need as as many coupons from the DirecTV Billing envelope, the kind that look like an over-sized 100 dollar bill. NOTE: Each DirectTV bill has two coupons! No, DirecTV says, “Just give an Account number (DirecTV or eMail address DirecTV subscriber. That’s all!”. You will get a $10.00 credit for each person dctlan.com sponsors using your email address
We (here at dctlan.com) will verify that each donation has filled in an actual DirecTV user’s account number on each of these coupons.
As soon as our numbers indicate we can, we will install DirecTV at our ‘young lady’s house. at our NEXT site!
Any remainder in DirecTV coupons will be set aside for another candidate ‘young lady’ or young man candidate. Nobody ‘kept me, has a job around here. I have NO shortage of candidates!
Publish some business cards with the link to this page, tell all my neighbors;

With the end of January, a lot of birthdays happen, all at once, almost. On January 26th, Dutchess has a birthday. On the 28th, Cousin Billy. (I was at dinner with Don and Nancy when we left Los Gringos Loco, this LAST 28th, Nancy called Cousin Bill and I really do have a hankering for a trip to Laughlin, NV)
Afterwards, Valerie and I visited with Don and Nancy and I was struck with her memory preceding mine. Nancy really ‘loved’ Bernice’s house and remembered visiting there for Christmas when I was very young. She said, “I want to visit that house and walk around on my knees!” I know exactly what she means. that would have been totterer hight back that number of years. I remember seeing scared faces from that buffet, like my sister Gloria’s face, finding me up on that buffet, while baby sitting, or, Duchesses’ begging me to come down from the uncomfortable top of that buffet, before another baby sitter found us!
It was such a Grand house!
Dutchess, Bix and Nancy where there before we can possibly remember! I do wish you would make time to come out west and visit your relatives.
And then on the 29th, Allen Wheland has HIS birthday. January is such a very good month for birthdays.
There was only a handful of days in my life that I actually did a soap box derby. I was involved long before fathers took the event over. My Dad was busy printing the St. Paul Dispatch – Pioneer Press the day I built a soap box racer. I had plenty of competition though with 5 other young men trashing their sister’s baby carriage(s) (for wheels) and borrowing my Dad’s hammer, nails and saw to put my entry and the 5 contenders’, together.
We had an acceptable hill on Goodrich at Dunlap with almost zero traffic, after Summit school let out.
I never made it to Eagle Scout. I had a good run at it and did have a bunch of merit badges at the Life scout level. My Grandson Gregory recently made Eagle Scout. (The one I have to hand it to, he is the one with the Afro Doo! BTW all 6 of my grandsons are in this photo! (some kind of record!) And, he is the older brother to this Pinebox Derby winning trio.
I am not old enough to be a grand father, but I am!
Mark Twain was my Dad’s favorite historical figure. I bet he knew all these quotes and then some. Bouncing around the internet I landed on this site and saw where the author kind of invited me to link these pages over here to dctlan.com. To visit there and see what I’ve seen, click the link below. ENJOY!
With 8.6 million hits awarded to the fledgling DCTLAN.com website, for a single post (on Amazon.com). DCT announces the appointment of Pete Strohecker, of Tabernash, Colorado, to the office of Editor, once held by John Holmgren aka “John – of – the -Rockies”. No wages were released at the time of this writing.
John has been moved to an office marked as CFO and was seen cleaning out his editor’s desk with a cardboard box while darting between two security guards munching jelly filled doughnuts.
“The move was bound to happen,” John remarked, after the news of the DirecTV Coupon situation ‘broke’ here in the DCT NewsRoom. “I should have seen this coming…” John said with a sly smile on his face. “Seems the present DirecTV program has an end date only 10 days from the start of DCTLAN’s DirercvTV Project”.
The new editor, Pete Strohecker, was not available for comment.
More on this later, after eleven, or later still, at seven. jdh
