I haven't opened it but I bet it's got an E-Button.
It's from LA crosse Technology. Billing is "third party". Probably going to
open it pretty soon, Helen keeps saying "Open it!".

If you get real curious, open it instead of shaking, throwing or stomping

I wouldn't have done that, expecially something with an E-Button.

I peeked. Really packed well and well protected anyway. Best I've seen.
I slid it out enough to see it was a big clock, I just slid it out of the
sleeve far enough to see but Helen read something before I slid it back in.
She said it sets itself. That would explain "just put batterys in and push
the E-Button" but how in hell would it do that? Must have to plug into
the internet someway. Well, less than a week.

Got a card from Janet (already 65) welcoming me aboard. She said
Gordon's about gone now.

Helen read it right.
I sent you an email yesterday around 5 or 6 pm. Gordon died after being home maybe 2 or 3 hours , never regaining conscousness. About the same time, Janet was getting an eviction notice for not paying her rent. Frankie's grandson (Jer ry's son) took the bankrupt for the second time and lost his home. They lived in Kingsport. Probably moved down here to get help from Frankie. You can imagine how well that worked. She won't even pay Janet's rent. She has gone that route for t he last time, she says. Of all of Pop's grandchildren, Wayne's have done the best. No contest!
Tommy Cowen was disbarred and is contesting it at this time. He was cheating IRS.

Cowan must have gotten barred again, I know he got disbarred before.
I guess he got rebarred.

have taken place for 25 years."

PostSubject: e button   Fri Mar 26, 2010 7:39 am

The clock is set by a satalite that is programed to circle the earth every 24 hrs. It is probably the same way computer clocks, phone clocks and even some watches are set. It also changes the time when daylight savings goes into effect.
The e button ,as I call it, sets the time zone . e standing for eastern. I've had one for two years and haven't needed to change the battery yet. It takes one AA battery
