Jim Howard at the White House

 On day six of my visit with family, here in DC, I made it to the White House.  They had extra security setup for some reason.  They had some of the ways you can see the White House shut down and they had people back more from the White House.  I am not sure why.  I do NOT think it was because I was visiting.

Day six in Washington DC

 This is day six in Washington DC.  It is Friday and it is 0900 hours and 57 degrees.  It should hit 76 degrees today.  

The flight from Dallas Love Field was fast but all the seats on the aircraft were filled.  I was in the last row of seats on the aircraft.  I picked the seat.  I was one of the first on the aircraft.  I took the window seat.  Well the “windows” I think are so small you should not call them windows.  A nice guy was in the seat next to me but he was big enough to play for the NFL.  Seats are to small.  People should not put up with being forced to fly like a bunch of sardines in a can.  

Traffic getting from the airport to my family’s home was bad.  One reason was the suicide at the capitol.  We did not learn about it until the next day.
Saturday and Sunday we decided to rest and to just visit.

On Monday the family took me to see the Jefferson, FDR and MLK sites.  That took about three hours and a lot of walking.
Tuesday I rested up.
Wednesday we went to see old aircraft and space hardware.  Pretty neat display of all of it.  There were a lot of stairs.  It looks like walking I can do OK.  Stairs are hard for me.  My legs still hurt today.
Yesterday we went to the National Security Agency (NSA) National Cryptologic Museum.  I got a t-shirt.  So you will be seeing it in some YouTube videos that I make I bet.

Getting out and seeing DC on the Metro

 I am visiting with family in Washington DC.  Today we are going to use the Metro and visit some sites.  We been out a via car but today we use the Metro.  I will take some photos and make some videos.  I will post images here and will post video here and on YouTube.

My family here have said in the past that they have high speed Internet.  They have Verizon service.  I did a speed test for them and they have 10M up and 10M down.  Now that is a nice up speed but now days 10M down is not that good.
I am thinking that they have Verizon “high speed” DSL service.

I went to the Verizon site and did not see any prices for their high speed Internet services.  But they do have 25/25, 50/50 and 75/75.
At home our cable service is 5M up and 60M down.
I would love to have 25M up and 25M down.
I could not find any prices on the Verizon page.  It looks to me like they want you to take their TV and phone service and I got a feeling you will have a hard time getting them to just give you Internet service.

I am in Washington DC

 I made it to Washington DC.   I was met by my daughter and son-in-law.  It is a long time to get to their place.  The number of people out looking at the cheery blossems was unreal.  I could not believe the number of people and cars.

Texas State ID

  Today was the last day for me to get mail before I leave for DC.  I got my Texas state ID.  I am glad.  Showing a piece of paper just does not feel correct.  Now I got a ID card just like everyone else.
 
  I feel like this trip is off to a good start.
  I am going to get to visit for two weeks with my oldest daughter and her husband.
  I also get to spend two weeks in Washington DC. 
  When I come back from DC you are not going to want to be around me.  Every time there is a news story I will be saying.. I was right there…I stood in that area…I was outside the White House. 
  Not just the news.. think of all the movies…You will try to enjoy a movie around me and I will be saying.. I been there.

  Going to take it easy this weekend.  But I am sure I will still be making some videos and uploading them to YouTube and you can see them here.
  That reminds me I am going to take my Logitech C920 camera.  It will work with the Chromebook.
  
  I do not think I have reviewed the Chromebook for Amazon.  When I get back home I should know a lot more about the Chromebook.

Tomorrow is the day

  I will be going to Washington DC tomorrow.  A cab will pick me up at 0530 hours.  I want to get to the airport early (Love Field).  I already printed my boarding pass.  It is A-21.  So I should get my choice of seats.  I am going for the back of the aircraft.  I hear a lot of people do not want to sit there.  A number of reasons but the big one is that you are last getting off the aircraft.  I want to be near the rest room.
  I still have not decided on WiFi. 
 

  There will be video posted here and on YouTube later in the day.
  But I suspect that on Saturday I will be just visiting with family and taking a nap or two.
