I just bought a C.CRANE CC Pocket radio. While reading the setup instructions I found a section on expanding the FM band. I wasn’t really sure what that meant so I looked it up. Apparently, different parts of the world use different ranges in the FM band.
FM, or frequency modulated radio waves, can be generated at any frequency. However, the 30 to 300 megahertz (MHz), or very high frequency (VHF) range, is most commonly used. The Americas, which is ITU region 2, broadcasts in the 88 to 108 MHz range. Expanding the frequency of the C.CRANE Pocket radio will be useful should I travel abroad.

I have insomnia and I cannot get this poem out of my head. It is a poem about New York Ranger’s great, Lester Patrick, aka The Silver Fox.
Patrick was the coach of the Rangers in 1928. They were playing the Montreal Maroons for the Stanley Cup. During the series, Rangers goalie Lorne Chabot, was injured. At that time, teams didn’t carry a backup goalie. They could bring in a reserve goalie from the stands, if needed, but had to have the opposing team’s approval. There were two reserve goalies in attendance but the Montreal Maroons refused to allow them to play. To remedy the situation, the 44 year old coach of the Rangers, Lester Patrick, “donned the pads” for the Broadway Blueshirts.
This poem was in a hockey book I read about 40 years ago. I don’t remember the name of the book, but I still remember the poem.
“Twas in the spring of ’28
A golden Ranger page
That Lester got the summons to guard to the Blueshirt cage
Cabot had stopped a fast one
A bad break for our lads
The cup at stake and no one
To don the Ranger pads
We’re cooked lamented Patrick
This crisis I had feared
He leaned upon his newest crutch
And wept inside his beard
Then suddenly he came to life
No longer halt or lame
Gimme those pads he bellowed
I used to play this game
And how the Rangers shouted
How Patrick was acclaimed
The Maroons stood sneering, gloating, they should have been ashamed
The final score was 2 to 1 Ole Les had met the test
The Rangers finally won the cup but Les has since confessed
I just spoke up to cheer the boys
I must have been delirious
But now that I’m in reminisence
I’m glad they took me serious.”
I first became interested in the assassination of John F. Kennedy on November 21, 2011. I was listening to my favorite radio program, Coast To Coast AM, with George Noory. George was interviewing Barry Ernest, author of The Girl on the Stairs: My Search For A Missing Witness To The Assassination Of John F. Kennedy.
Needless to say, I was fascinated, infuriated and hooked on the caper. Since then I have read several books regarding JFK’s murder and several other books that touch on it. In the later category Behold A Pale Horse by Milton William Cooper. Cooper says was convinced that JFK’s driver was at least one of the shooters/murderers. He said to watch the Zapruder film and only look at the driver. He said that if you pay attention to the driver only, you will see him turn around and shoot JFK.
Well, I did as instructed above. At first it did look like the driver, Bill Greer, turns around and shoots him. However, now I’m not so sure.
What do you think? have a look at around the 30-31 second mark.
I’m not sure about this claim. I figured it out and I’m no Tesla.

Dawes “was a self-taught pianist and composer whose 1912 ‘Melody in A Major‘ was given words in 1951 to become the popular song titled ‘It’s All In The Game.’ Recorded by countless artists who ranged from Nat King Cole to Donny & Marie Osmand, it made Dawes the only vice-president and Nobel Peace Prize winner with a No. 1 pop hit in both Britain and America.” (Al Capone: His Life, Legacy and Legend by Deirdre Bair, page 175)
