Admiration is what IT is all about  no matter what IT refers to.  In this particular case for The Debut of the WONDER WOMAN Movie, I decided to salute the wonderful & wondrous Women I’ve been lucky enough to meet on Twitter since I incorporated this powerful Social Medium into my Daily Routines back in May of 2010.

Those Women are as follows:

FATHER HEROS’ WEEK ©2017: The Creation of a HOLIDATE honoring The Institution of Fatherhood.


AUTHOR's NOTE:  The following is a Facebook Post I wrote earlier today (Monday, June 12)  addressing a very important Topic that needs to be addressed that was inspired by Attorney Jeffery M. Leving of Chicago.  It is also The Beginning of The Formation of a Holidate that continues our beloved Father's Day Tradition that is 107 Years Old as of 2017.  Updates & Facelifts are always important in the Advancement of a extremely serious Issue.  This Blog Entry serves and stands as one of those. 
 
* * *
 
ASK /Chicago: As We approach Father's Day at the end of this Week, a few Words to ponder and take to heart:

 

So I am enjoying the Day. Strolling around #PrintersRowLitFest on Sunday, June 11, 2017 in the early Afternoon when I approached a BOOTH with someone who looked VAGUELY familiar to me. Then, all of a sudden I put 2 + 2 2gether & saw that it was Jeffery M. Leving that I see on TV all the time! So I blurted that out; but I'm sure he gets “THAT” all the Time, being so visible on a ForeFront that is one of a Family's Greatest Threats to their Safety & Welfare:

 

 

When Families break up and The Kids are fought over.

 

 

Being the Product of such a self-destructive Family (Unit), I realize how that is carried through a complete Child's LifeTime and impacts them; the Mates and Choices they make after the(ir) Parents’ divorce.

 

 

Attorney Leving and his Partner & I chatted for several Minutes. I asked him about the State of Divorced Husbands who finally attain and get to share Custody Rights and about Parents that abscond (kidnap or snatch) their Kids and then return to a far distant HOMELAND, where the remaining Parent has to hire the appropriate Agents to negotiate the Child’s Return. Attorney Leving is also involved in that Scenario – one Faction I had not considered when listening to his TV Commercial.

 

 

Needless to say: There’s a Hollywood Movie there in “The Making” – all at The Cost of the Child’s Security & sound Mental Health. Bitterness never works. Every Child should be able to experience an “Age of Innocence” where all he or she needs to do is GROW up surrounded by Love, Education and Familial Support.

 

 

SO THIS STARTED ME THINKING AFTER OUR CHAT: Father’s Day began in 1910 according to Google. That makes this Tradition at its 107TH Anniversary Birthday Celebration as of Sunday, June 18. Now, since I’m “America’s Premier Eventologist,” a new HOLIDATE should be creatively invented called:

 

 

FATHER HEROS’ WEEK ©2017

 

starting on the Third Sunday of June running through the Fourth (4TH) Week giving Dads everywhere “The Gift of Time” which is something We never have enough (of) with Our Parents. It’s delightful and reassuring to know that our Generation is living the longest – well into their 80s – 90s and many seeing 100+.

 

 

And, The Spokesperson(ality), of course, would be Jeffery M. Leving who has been fighting for Fathers’ Rights for a very long Time. After all, #Fathers_matter_most. It’s important to keep a Perspective on WHO’s been there for us. A Dad serves as The Basis of a well-balanced Child.

August 9 is on The Horizon: 65 Days Before 65: The ASKian Countdown begins today: Monday, June 5, 2017.

HARK!  HARK!

It's Revelation Time in Chicagoland.

With August 9th, my 65TH Birthday on the Horizon, there's lots to plan for.  Especially as to what I plan to do and accomplish for my next Set of 65 Years. Oh, I can hear the snickers now.  However, being the Creator of

2000 Days Before 2000

that began on July 11, 1994, that Holidate (part of my Eventological Empire of 1900+ Holidates falling into 34 precise Categories) is a Formula that sets YOUR Life into a Semblance of Order. 

FYI, because of 2000 Days Before 2000, I was known as one of the top 125 in the entire World who were making and instituting PRE-PLANS for the Coming of the New Millennium & Century.

Every Day from Monday, June 5, 2017, I'll keep an active Diary here as to what happens to me, my Cat Cali, Family & Friends as We PURRceive the Good Old Days and the Times ahead. Won't you join us, as it's bound to be as suPURRb as it was for the first 7.5 Decades or so We are prone (PURRone) to believe. 

When and if you are lucky enough to be BORN a Cat - A Leo - with an ABC: Annual Birthday Celebration in August, you are prone to think  in austerely creative Ways that make this Blog one of the best ones to read and be inspired by.

ADRIENNE's ALMANAC: 
June 5 - August 8:  65 Days Before 65.
August 9, 2017 - 4:45 AM CST:  I turn 65. 
Reflections on and about Life in the 20th & 21st Centuries


Monday, June 5, 2017:  Monday: Catdom spotlights on the Needs of the Pet you are her Human (to).  Therefore, it's a Blessing to spend time with her.  Animals (as Cats & Dogs) have been domestic-CAT-ed.  They did not ask to be.  Therefore, We owe Animals a much better life than many of them are forced to have. MY RECO:  Treat them as you do Family; as there is nothing like a soft Purr to soothe an anxious Time(s). Cali, my Calico is Precious (purrecious) Cat and you'll be hearing a lot about her in the next 65 Day Period (purriod) ahead.  She's a guaranteed ShowStopper.

Tuesday, June 6, 2017:  Keeping with the Theme of CATS  as purrtrayed in the above Opening today: June 6 is the 55TH Year of the Day that Tha Hin Koopersmith - that's kooPURRSmith - in pure Catese came into our Lives.  Our - as in my Family:  Mom/Dad/Joe/Lin.  The most beautiful Siamese Cat that ever graced the planet. It was the Beginning of the Summer & MOM felt her Children should learn some Responsibility. I got a Cat.  The Day before my Bro Joe got 2 Turtles that we named Sam & Ham.  Animals - Pets so enrich a Person's Life.  Now as I edge into my Senior Years, it's more important than ever before to have a PET that makes you WANT to get out of Bed in the Morning for, because no where else will you find that kind of Love.  Today, CALI-My-Calico fills my Days with JOY & she has taken on where THA HIN left off as the SpokesKitty of PAW: Pet Appreciation Week (C) that I founded for Thy as we called him, honoring CATS & 64 other Species from now through June 12. But as we all know:  PETS are to be loved and cared for all year round - not just on a designated Week or Holidate as this.

Wednesday, June 7, 2017:  Marking Days is what We all seem to do. However, a Date of Importance came up on my Radar this AM when I opened up my Facebook Account, telling me that as of Today, I have been a Member since 2007.  I had not realized it was that long.  A really nice Video was produced showing the Highlights of ME during that TimeSlot...one that only seemed like Yesterday, but Yesterday is gone.  Today, on my Eventological Calendar - or CALI-ndar as my Calico Cat CALi calls it, there's:

Day #2 of PAW: Pet Appreciation Week©1994 that is 23 years in The Making;

The 2nd WonderWomanWednesday(s)©2017 that honors Women who are wonderous and wonderful and even if they aren't they can become so;

The 11th  Day Countdown till  National Splurge Day # 23 that can also be used on PAW, only because it's fun to SPOIL our Pets that mean so much to us.

Thursday, June 8, 2017 - 12:41 PM CST:  Different Modes for Different Folks. You see it everywhere. Not only in your own Life as to how things can take a turn for the better or best; but in The Lives of your Friends & Co-Workers and even those who make it ONLINE and those who choose to take a Day off.  However, IF you take care of yourself, there's bound to be (2 B in Fluent Twitterese) Repercussions - rePURRcussions in Fluent Cat - that will benefit the Grand Scheme.  And at 64 and 10 Months minus 1 Day, The Grand Scheme gets grander with every Moment that is left - right - here and there.  Taking advantage of that is a necessity that goes beyond any hemming or hawing that you may have.

Friday, June 9, 2017 - 2:34 PM CST:  Thirty-Eight Years ago today, my Father died.  38 years ago there was no such thing as every Man - Woman & Child being in the Computer Age. It was at its Infancy.  And Today being IN IT means the difference between being a Dinosaur or NOT. With that thought in mind, I'm happy to say that my 88 year old Mother, a real Survivor on many Fronts went out and bought her First Apple Computer; having been weaned on a Typewriter; then moving to Web TV in the 1990s and then a Laptop and now: VOILA, completely ensconced in ATA:  All Things Apple.  More Seniors should be like Mom!  And, my COUNTDOWN TO 65 is in exactly 2 months when I turn 65.  But we'll take our Time getting there.  There's plenty to do in the meantime...


Saturday, June 10, 2017 – 11:08 AM CST: It doesn’t cost anything to lose yourself in The Street Fairs that dot the Streets of Big Cities in America during the Summer Time. They are ripe with entertainment – music – food – friends (new and old to be made) and an excitement that can only be had when out on the Street – a street that is usually consumed by traffic. Therefore, keeping that Thought in mind BLOG Entries as this can and must be abbreviated. Short.  To the Point in order that WOTS: Working On The Sabbaths is put to bed, for at least one Season’s Worth. 

Sunday, June 11, 2017 – 3:01 PM CST:  Into everyone's Day a Street Fair must fall and there's no place better than the Streets of Chicago for that, especially so during the near Summer - End of Spring, one week before National Splurge Day (C)1994, one of my  most popular Holidates in which to click in and see what other Creatifs are doing.  Therefore, I'm there.  The Chicago Tribune's Yearly Event that caters to the Authors and Journalists amongst us.  Off to see Maud of the Chicago Sun-Times speak about her Family's Flight from Nigeria in the late 1960s and then other break-through Artists as Sharon Sultan Cutler of The Bandstand Diaries.  And, why not?  We should all be good to ourselves, for at least, one Weekend at the End of each Week.  No more kidding.  The Literature we read reflects where we came from and where we are off (to).  Ending Sentences with a  Preposition is not a good proposition, but Grammar gets in the way of Time Management if we don't have the time to google on the Weekends, when we should be out PLAYING our Hearts away...

Monday, June 12, 2017: So Monday came and went.  Being furiously busy, I actually was unable to post this Post til now:  10:52 AM on Tuesday.  Reflecting back on Monday, you can see why Mondays get a Bad Rap.  They should be made into Part of the Weekend so that People can rest and relax after a wild and crazy Friday Night, Saturday & Sunday Experience.  Not that this is going to happen anytime to soon, but for those retired, they know exactly what I'm writing about...

Tuesday, June 13, 2017 – 10:50 AM CST:   Sometimes Routines are meant to be broken. This is what is happening today regardless of if Jupiter aligns with Mars or not. When there's a Shift in the Weather, this can also make or break a Person's Day and since it's early enough to try to get Things back "on track," that's exactly what I plan to do and on doing.


Wednesday, June 14, 2017 –  2:32 PM CST:  What I especially like about the 14TH is that it my Holidate known as #Birdentine Times that addresses Birds derived from my Birdictionary that is still a Work-in-Progress and what I especially like about Wednesdays is that it is my Holidate known as #WonderWomanWednesdays where I pick my top Selectee - a Woman that I admire.  #1 was Morissa Schwartz;  #2 is Kamla of Palatial Publishing & #3 is Shannon - all incredible Women in their own Rights & Rites.

Thursday, June 15, 2017 –  12:13 PM CST:  Fur Purrsday today I must share something my Cat, Cali The Calico did last night while We were asleep. She crawled up on me (which she usually does) and I find this so comFURting and laid her head on the right side of my face & turned on her PURR Machine.  It was louder than a Boeing 757 on a runway.  Most times she will creep up on to my shoulder and put her left flank (leg) up to my ear so I can hear her PURR - from her Tummy area.  However, this was from her Vocal Chords - where the PURR is manufactured. It was the most incredible sound I ever heard.  She stayed there for a few minutes then jaunted off, filling me with more love FOR her than I had and she is always LOVED through and through.  Being the FURst time this ever happened to me as a Proud Pet Owner for over 64 years, I felt very blessed to have this ExPURRience a la CAT.  

Friday, June 16, 2017:  Bright & early from 7-8 am I was able to speak to Douglas Criss, Digital trending  Journalist at CNN.  "I tell stories" is his Motto and since I have been creating HOLIDATES - over 1900 of them - that are quite similar to AESOP's Fables whose initials are embedded in my NAME, I was able to chat with him for an entire entertaining Hour. With National Splurge Day happening on Sunday, this is indeed an exciting weekend. Doug had heard my NPR Planet Money Interview of April 18 in which Cali, My Calico sneezed.  Amazing how THE NEWS travels both near and afar and even further than that!

Saturday, June 17, 2017 - 11:26 AM:  Moving on due to the fact that "Mommy Dearest" has decided to kick Cali & I from her Household where We have been living since my Building went CondoConversion on April 30.  There are no more livable places in Chicago; the State Government is closing HOMELESS Shelters, but with a CAT-in-Tow, the Situation worsens; however, I refuse to crate her and put her into a Kennel since We are kindred spirits. Cali is the CEO of my Heart.  Someone who owned her before I did declawed her so I am her Soul Protection.  This means The CAT & I will be homeless on the bad, nasty and angry Streets of Chicago by tonight - around 6PM CST.  For those who want to aid and assist me, call me at:

847-630-9201

and/or my friend of 14 years, Robert Hofstadter who is recuperating and mending at The Grove/Evanston, a physical therapy rehab center as he had 3 Lumbars in his lower back operated on 10 days ago.  He is in room #106.  Warning;  It is hard to get Reception there on his CellPhone (as it is considered a dead zone) but please keep on trying. 

Bob's # is:  847-890-1489. 
The Grove / Evanston:  847-316-3320 (ask for Robert Hofstadter in Room 106)

He'll get the message to me.  All Cali &  I need is a room with a Window or a Sublet Studio apartment as Cali likes to look out till July 1. It may be longer TILL Robert fully recovers, but he is making REMARKABLE Progress to date.  That would be most helpful.  My Life is like a roller coaster.  In April, an NPR reporter/radio talk show host flies from NYC to Chicago to interview me and I have no book/movie/project out or done.  In June, a  CNN journalist spends an hour chatting with me.  The next DAY, I'm homeless.  Something has got to give...

Sunday, June 18, 2017 - 4:25 PM CST:  It's the 23rd Round of my Holidate: NATIONAL SPLURGE DAY.  Woke up with my Cat & "Best Friend"; watched some CBS Sunday Morning and then was able to see over 3,000,000 Results as of this Holidate that included mainstream media cashing in on my Concepts that certainly place the POP INTO POPULAR CULTURE.  That's exactly what EVENTOLOGY is all about...one Day at a Time.

Monday, June 19, 2017 - 3:30 PM:  Another Month that seems to be escaping far faster than I want it to go.  Think of it this way:  In 2 more Days it will be the Start of Summer: 2017, the Summer that I turn 65 and others will also.  An influx of old age is striking many of us. If you want the facts, just google:  How many Americans turn 65 every Day? and you will find this Statistic: 

10,000 Boomers Turning 65 Everyday


In some Aspects, History does not repeat itself.  Sadly, it doesn't or won't in this Case.


 
Tuesday, June 20, 2017 - 5:12-14 PM CST: Mewsday:  According to #The_Cat in my Life, #Cali_The_Calico.  Woke up late today; plan to stay up later.  Only one thing to say is:  Waking up is much better than not.  Putting a plan into action that will help other Authors besides myself not be eaten up and spit out by the BIG MACHINE that considers themselves unstoppable.  More Deets and Details on that once a few more Dots are tied together.  It's what's in my Makeup.  Making sure that those who are VOICELESS are not forgotten or left behind. 


Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 2:34 PM CST:  you cannot really argue with the Calendar. When it comes to this time of year:  The Transition of one Season to the next it's time for Rejoicement and that's a rare feeling.  Especially so since I was able to meet up with Robert for a Chat; take Cali on a walk and proceed with some important Writings that clears up how a major TV Station must be punished and held liable for Copyright Infringement.  Never a dull moment at hand; let's hope it stays that way...for the next 65 years...


Thursday, June 22, 2017 - 3:31 PM CST:  Follow-up is important and finding more and more companies - even in Saudi Arabia that are promoting National Splurge Day assures me I am on to something big, especially with the 30TH Anniversary of EVENTOLOGY coming up in 2020.  Prepare to be delighted...

Friday, June 23, 2017 - 3:38 PM CST:  So it appears to be getting really close to the First Full Weekend of the First Week of Summer for 2017, my last Summer of being 64 and only 1 for that matter.  Which brings me to another Campaign called:  #All_Lives_Matter that I placed on Mohamedou O Salahi Twitter account within the last Hour or so. U may remember Mo from the March 12,2017 CBS 60 Minutes Segment as he was detained at Gitmo for 14 years and wrote a Best Seller after teaching himself English & enduring some of the worst Torture ever done and performed by Man on to Man.  SO, if you think you are having a BAD DAY, consider what he went thru, then count UR Blessings...

I suggest everyone should follow him, as his Mentality and Love of Life is contagious: 

Mohamedou O Salahi

@MohamedouOuld  Follows you

Saturday, June 24, 2017 - 7:37 PM CST:  Tiz Time 4 a New HOLIDATE - an instant replay of one that I created back on Nov 13, 1994 @ 3:53 PM.  Called the International Internet Moment (C)1994, it only takes a second to take that LEAP OF FAITH that so many of fail to do.  Circumstances should not stand in our way...  And, 6 months from today, on Xmas Eve we may be better off than we are or once were...


Sunday, June 25, 2017 - 5:07 PM CST:  Nearly a Day has gone by in which the New Holidate:  The International Internet Moment (C)2017 has kicked in; allowing me to be ever the more productive.  Hail - Hail The Band's all here.  And, as Eugenia from The Armory told me on Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - at 9:20 AM -- on the First Day of Summer to paraphrase:  What Life takes you through...  Combine the 2 of those: Life & Internet Tribulations and you've certainly enough to write about...  Six Months from today is Xmas and hopefully, you'll find yourself in a much better place - if that's what you wish for. Say AMEN! 


Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday:  June 26-27-28:  What can you say when Three (3) Days totally escape you when you are attempting to get a Daily Diary up online?  That Time flies and that there’s not enough Hours in one’s day.  That’s the only Answer I can basically think of. Plus, you have to realize that certain Times of the Year are more conducive to being off-line.  Summer is one of those and that Season is happening now; which is a constant Joy to most Sun Worshippers as long as tornadoes do not whip up and the Skies remain sunny.  With that being said, it’s time to check out what needs to be checked out.

Thursday-Friday:  June 29-30, 2017:  This is the Week of the non-Diary Entries.  Am I getting too old to note and record every little Bit & Piece that happens to me; or do I just prefer lumping it all together according to a few days at a time.  What's gotten in my way is an overload of WORK; that's my only excuse.  If a person were to take the 8 hours he/she works and dedicate 1 out to each project that may enable him/her to get that extra something done - on the date that it was to be done.  Yup, a mighty fine Deduction there, Miss Koopersmith.  Pencil that in as SOMETHING TO DO for your next Set of 65 years come(th) August 9, 2017.

What I did find out though this week was that my 65TH Birthday falls on a Wednesday.  That means my Invention of #WONDERWOMANWEDNESDAYS really does hold true; as I was born on a Saturday - Caturday, 1 of my 7 favorite Days of the Week, but this truly proves there is/are Ancient Astronauts. 

Saturday, July 1, 2017 - 3:47 PM CST:  Many of us (with numbers to advanced to record) cannot figure out how we got THIS old, THIS fast.  With that aside, now that it is the Start of the Second Half of 2017, it's fun to note and notice that numerically, the Math is seen as:

7-1-17
which is a Numerical Palindrome.

The next 2 and last of that Series for the Century happen on:

8-1-18
&
9-1-19.

The First began on January 1, 2011.  With that being said, no more needs to be said as we head towards the 241ST Birthday of our Nation's Foundation.  At least, something is older than I am...and many others (at that). 

For those who are CAT >^..^< Lovers, I suggest they record a Special Thing your Cat recently did.  Last nite, as I was getting ready for bed, Cali, My Calico snuggled up onto my left arm which I wrapped around her.  She then stretched out her long beautiful right arm, over my left arm; proceeded (PURRceded) to lay her head down & quickly fell asleep.  It was indeed one of the most beautiful (catiful) things I had ever seen.  Cali is all Heart & CEO of mine.

Sunday, July 2, 2017 - 6:01 PM CST:    "Keep your feet on the Pegs," is what John told Anchor/Interviewer Jane Pauley as they hopped on to his cycle - 2 kids from The State of Indiana.   Yet another reason why I watch CBS Sunday Mornings.  This Rock Interview was with John Cougar Mellencamp who was quoted as saying: 

"I'm 65 years old. I can see the finish line from here. I only have so many summers left. And I intend not to waste them being old."

Could anyone else say it any better?  I think not.  Thank you, John.


Monday, July 3, 2017 & Tuesday, July 4, 2017 - 10:14 AM CST:
With the HOLIDAY, America’s 241ST Birthday coming up on Tuesday, it may be a very long Weekend for those lucky enough to seal a very l-o-n-g Weekend.  However, July 4th always marks a very important date in my Life as it is the Day that I got my First Apartment as an Adult on July 4, 1974; thus getting my Independence on Independence Day.  I always liked that.  It was symbolic.  Symbolism is good; it gives us something else to associate with.  And, for 2017, it marks the 8TH Month that my beautiful CAT, #Cali_The_Calico strolled into my Life. I had seen her out and about the Neighborhood, but on November 4th, late at Night she was OUTSIDE & Cold and then I realized she was mine and I was hers.  Her Human.    8 Months together; 2 months living in a temPURRary  aPURRtment with yet another New Home on the Horizon…we are hoping.


Wednesday, July 5, 2017 – 8:49 AM CST.  Life is not always happy. One of my Classmates that I knew since 5 (Days of Kindergarten with Miss Lucille Fritz) would have been 65 today.  Her name was Jill Becker Hutchinson and she passed away a few months ago.  Moments to reflect on our Good Times – growing up in a small town; our Teen Years and later Life Trials & Tribulations will mark today as her Family & Friends mourn (uncontrollably).  She left us way too soon; but all the more richer from having the Chance to know her and to say:  Jill is our Friend, through the Good and through the Bad Times.  Rest In Peace, JillyBob as I had nicknamed her.

Thursday, July 6, 2017 –3:02 PM CST:  Signs from BEYOND may actually be up and down Broadway.  Not only "Thee Broadway" in New York City, but the mega street that's found in Chicago, on my Home Turf.  While biking early today, a few of those signs hit me. I suppose I had to be IN THE MOOD to be "hit" with what they were saying, but at certain times in our lives, we are more prone to pick up those subtler influencers.  Those 3 were:

Rollin' in the Dough

Good things to come
...for Today & for all Times.

I better bike back and see what else is posted. 

Friday, July 7, 2017 - 8:31 PM CST:  40 years ago today I was residing in Mendota, IL USA while my Parents were divorcing.  Back then, the Numbers were 7-7-77 which also happened to be Dick Clark's Wedding Day.  Now, it's 40 years later or 7-7-17 and Mom & I are 40 years older.  Got caught in a Storm this AM; soaked; applied for an Apartment on the North Side of Chicago that is totally overpriced; did color copies for a Chicago Mogul that may like to hire me for his vast accounts; biked to Evanston to mail the packet and then back into the City where I treated myself to some guacamole at Whole Foods. I need to learn that recipe since it is healthy for you - as healthy as it gets.  Coming back home, I spent time with my Cat Cali -- playing with a CAT opens up a different type of PLAY that more PPL should get into...  Spoke to Bob about his recent Lumbar Operation and it takes strength to go through what he went through.  Life is not fair, that's for sure...no matter what decade you may be in. 

Saturday, July 8, 2017 - 11:31 AM CST:  Bound for Evanston where #Cali_My_Calico & I will be taking up residence at a high end Hotel for several days before we move in (hopefully) to our New Abode.  Looking forward to that, I've packed up all her Toys & Food & Excrementory Products for the ride up; on a gorgeous sunny Summer-like Day.  TOA: Time Of Arrival will be 3 PM - check in and then I get to reacclimate MY CAT to yet another place in time & space.  Special Thanks to MOM for being here - there & everywhere when WE needed it.  


Sunday, July 9, 2017 - 7:36 AM CST:   A Month from TODAY is August 9th - that heralds in my 65TH Birthday.  I'm more than 1/2 way through my Life.  Hard to get a handle on that since I have yet so much to do, especially my 7 Part Book & Film Project called:

SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature (TM)
How 10 Beloved Plush TOYS Redefine Race (C)2009

as well as The Birdictionary & an Assortment of Fifty (50) Books that need to be published.  With 4 STORAGE Bins brimming with the BEST IDEAS on the Planet, an Angel Investor is needed for what I have termed as:

THE INSTITUTE OF EVENTOLOGY

that houses my 1900 HOLIDATES since I am:

"America's Premier Eventologist"
&
"The Premier Eventologist in The History of The World"

titles I received from 2 astounding Reporters, namely Gene Koprowski of Insight Magazine - Washington DC in August of 1997

(nearly 20 years ago)

&

Eric Zorn of the Chicago Tribune (Chicago, IL) in January of 2001...

When a Woman has Goals, it shows...

And The Countdown begins...

Monday, July 10, 2017 - Strange how things happen.  Vacationing at the Hilton with Cali and now we have Company who makes all the Difference.  Glad for that.  Gladder that We are all together & in a happier state.  How things happen can best be left alone...just to see how they play themselves out.

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 - 1:37 PM CST:  7-11-17 OR:  71117 is a Palindrome, numerically speaking, of course and a MILESTONE because on July 11, 1994 I started 2000 Days Before 2000 which was the 2000TH Day Before the Year 2000 and that was a huge Milestone for that time.  Because of that prolific HOLIDATE, I was placed in a bracket of my own being one of the top 125 PEOPLE in the entire World who were doing a SPECIAL OCCASIOn for the Arrival of...can you say: The Y2K Bug...  And, I'm still creating HOLIDATES as July 25, 2017 marks my 27th Year of Eventology.  

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 – 6:29 PM CST:  The most fun I have is when I am hanging with THE CAT – Cali, My Calico who has her own Way of the sweetest Things that I have ever ever seen done.  I call her a Special Species as she is more than a CAT; she has a SPECIAL Something that is beyond any Great Spirit I have ever seen.  We took 30 minutes off and went outside our Hotel.  Cali also is getting more and more confident as she steps out from Our Room and discovers a new beautiful Carpet and runs from room-to-room.  I discovered a new JOB Opportunity that wants  a set of Eyes & Ears here in The States so I applied to that. One Job; One Big House & then The Institute of Eventology can take off and be planted as I started it nearly 27 years ago come the 25TH of this Month.  Placing things into place takes time, effort and lots of LOVE.

Thursday, July 13, 2017 - 1:20 PM CST:  For those in the World of Cats, the Day is better known as PURRSday - when most of the Cat Population across the Planet purrs the most.  Actually, that's not a bad idea for a Premise - #PURRemise - of a Book that Cali-My-Calico - Star of NPR could definitely sink her teeth into...  Now, the same can be said of Mondays that can be respelled as MEOWday... to again highlight the Joy of Cathood.  5 more days to go...

We are still vaCATioning at the Hotel Orrington in Evanston making our Summer the most FUN 1 yet...

Friday, July 14, 2017 - 6:09 PM CST - Avientine Days International (C)2016 -- a time when BIRDs are saluted and honored.  Pretty Feathers & all. Even those Plumes that are camouflaged do come in handy.  Respect of Nature & for the Life she has given us is one thing I seriously think about so that it is ingrained in my System.  It has manifested itself so that  that I do not eat any Animal that has a heart-beat or big brown eyes; or someone that I would enjoy petting.  Domestication has made Mankind (many of us) into monsters and savages; that's why a HOLIDATE as Avientine Days International (that happens on the 14th of each Month on the 14th when Valentine's Day appears) is important.  Gaining a Perspective is mandatory, especially in this time, day and age when so many Species are on the threatened or extinction lists.  

Saturday, July 15, 2017 - The Ides of July.  Ides, I've learned happen every month, but not necessarily on the 15th; sometimes on the 13th.  They merely remind me of the 1/2 Way Mark when it comes to counting and charging through time.  Half of the Month is gone; Half of the Month is left.  With that in mind, STUFF got done today, but in a sad mode for the Relationship between Robert Hofstadter & myself.  He can no longer be helped as he refuses to help himself.  No matter how sick a person gets, their healing begins with themselves and if they cannot begin THE PROCESS one cannot expect another Person can jump-in to save the Situation.  Him, aside, Cali & I made the rounds.  Staying at a CatFriendly Hotel is a HOOT - and I'm guessing they would let you bring in your Pet Parrot or Macaw...but the point 2 B made is that People will automatically come up and speak to you if you're sitting in the lobby; riding down on the Elevator or sitting out front comfortably - comFURtably - with a beautiful little Calico in your Arms.  Now, this is living.  Human Companionship - esp, if it borders on DysFUNctional can be and should be severed for the Mental & Physical Health of a Partner - but the BEST Partner there is is found in the Heart of Cat... That's where true PURRtnership begins.  Come for Love, stay for Kisses.  Come for Kisses, stay for Love. That's a Whole Lotta Lovin any time of the Month; whether your 6 - 5 or heading towards 65, any day now.  Thank you, Cali.

Sunday, July 16, 2017 - 5:29 AM - Cali got me up.  She needed her breakfast so without further - FURther adieu, I decided to open up the blinds and there were her Pigeons cooling ever so sweetly.  Now, here's a thought.  Someone should tape them and run it next to a Cat purring...now that's a calming effect no medication can perform.  That's medi-CAT-ion can PURRform, of course, in PURRe CATese.  The rest of the Day is yet to come.  We may jaunt over to The Arts + Music Festival on Sheridan Road & Church Street as it opens at Noon and lots can be done through then. 

Monday, July 17, 2017 - 2:53 PM CST: Instead of writing out a 65 Day Entry Journal every Day (like clockwork) on getting OLD(er), Mark Twain said it best in only 1 powerful Sentence that happens to be:

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Very happy to say that @EnterprNews, a Twitter is featuring me in their NewsFeeds as of 1:42 PM on July 18, 2017.  The First One came out today & read as:

NEWS: @ask_koopersmith, America's Premier Eventologist, marks 27 Years of creating HOLIDATES (Holiday Events)! #news #media #press #events

TO WHICH I RESPONDED:

Adrienne Koopersmith Retweeted EntreprNews

#EntreprNews_Listings ~ @EntreprNews So very nice, #EntreprNews. U really no how 2 craft a #Twitter_Media_Release. Overjoyed w/ #Results!



Tuesday, July 18, 2017: Today marks the First Junior National Splurge Day ©1994/2017 Mark in which you take YOUR Splurge-of-The-Day & aim it back towards the Syrian Refugees who need help and the Syrian Cats at @SyrianCats who are suffering from the Ravages of War.  There's more to Life than Indulgences because there's more to Life than one thinks.  Remove yourself from your own Realm and help those who need it - any and every Day that you find those who need Compassion.


Wednesday, July 19, 2017:  Today is yet another #WonderWomanWednesdays where I salute Women from my Twitter Account  - @ASK_Koopersmith - for the wondrous and wonderful Strides they have made.  Granted Women-are-Wonderful on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, I'm hooked on the "W" Alliteration Part that will, hopefully become a Book by next year at this Time while my Countdown to 66 is underway.

Alliterature ©2017:  New ASKian Term of July 19,2017 - 5:31 AM:  To encompass ALL of Literature.  Works for me.

Thursday, July 20, 2017 - 3:14 PM CST: Evanston Central Time.  Live here at the Hotel where Cali & I are staying, the Day started out with torrential storms that finally broke in order for me to jaunt back into the City where I had not set foot since July 8.  Checking out a few things in storage; off to get some GRUB (Honey - Cheese - Coffee & Chocolate), I made it all within 3.5 hours so I would not have to be gone LONG from Cali.  Bumped into a Friend, JOE FINE - of some 15 years who said: "Sit down, I want to learn to write like you do."  Joe, of course, doesn't understand that it takes MORE than sitting when it comes to Creative Writing.  But then, alas & alack, is more than a BLOG, that's a BOOK from A-Z and back again.  And, you need a really good Subject - inspiring as she is:  That's Cali My Calico.

Friday, July 21, 2017 - 754 AM CST:  We are officially into the First Month of Summer for 2017.  That means, 31 Days closer to my 65TH Birthday...an alarming Fact because I do not have 65 more Years to dither away.  News this AM seemed to hover around that fact as:

The Picasso turns 50 in August.  Mom & I were there for its Unveiling.  I was 15 at the Time & she was 39.  Seems like only yesterday; and


A REAL EYE OPENER:  CBS This Morning with Nora O’Donnel et. Al. (minus Charlie Rose & Gayle King) featured  Despacito - a Spanish song -  that was streamed over 4.6 Billion Times as the most popular Song in History. To which I sent THEM a Post that stated:

@CBSThisMorning The most STREAMED #Song_in_History!  Thaut it was #StairWay_to_Heaven by @ledzeppelin. Still is 2 ME!  #You_are_kidding_me!

later by:


#ASK_Chicago:  #Metrics – #Schmetrics:  #StairWay_to_Heaven by @ledzeppelin = #1 2 me & My Generation: 65 on #August_9! When MUSIC was MUSIC


We (People-in-general) do like and prefer what their (particular) Generation – esp. in our TEEN Years – where we are most impressionable -  listened to.  “LED” lead the Way 4 me. That’s a Given and I’m sure they’d have streamed if given that Modern Technology were around.  Old Fans (like me) die-hard.  Die-Hards in fluent Twitterese and Hashtaggery, that is.

Saturday, July 22, 2017:  Happy to see that it is FULLY the Sign of LEO as the Universe has been promising me some Surprises that have been growing for quite a Period of Time now.  I do not know how these are going to emanate, but People I have not seen in an extended Period of Time have "blurted" this out; that they have a feeling about my Aura.  I'm quite excited about this as I'm ready for New Challenges - both Cali & I are...

Sunday, July 23, 2017 - 12:58 PM CST:  Hot and Sticky is the Weather Forecast, but the Sun is out and not a Cloud in the Sky.  Yet, it's too steamy to take Cali outside the Hotel because she is wearing a little FUR Coat - being the Calico that she is and I do not want her overheated or dehydrated.  Coming down in the Elevator I created the first Stanza of a Poem for her that goes like this:

You're the Sparkle in my Life
&
You never bring me Strife
Oh Oh Oh Oh...

as of July 23, 2017 - 11:40 AM...

Bound to finish this the next Time We take the Elevator.  #Elevator_Inspiration...is what that form of Literature is officially called.

Monday, July 24, 2017 - 6:26 PM:  So I'm holding on to "My Youth" for as long as I can. " Saying that recently (Sunday, July 23, 2017)  there's not a day that goes by that you do not get older and hopefully wiser.  

Revise: So I'm holding on to "My Fleeting Youth" for as long as I can."  Instead of worrying about that, Cali & I were able to do a  Photo Shoot with our Friend, Kaley for a special HH: Honorable & Heroic Project that will help PETS out...which was said and stated Today on July 24, 2017 -- a Santa Is Retiring Episode - that as we know will be here in 5 months...

Tuesday, July 25, 2017 - 8:36 PM:  Today is the 27th Year since I conceived Eventology:  The Art of Event-Making - Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith's Campaigns For Humanity (C)1990.  The Best Part of this Year's Celebration is the sharing of it with Cali, My Calico, whose a Feline in Motion, graceful, beautiful and compassionate as no other Cat has ever portrayed - PURRtrayed  in her world.  On vacation at the Orrington Hotel, our Writer's Resort here allows us to get caught up on Work that needs to be done.  15 pages of Cat Pictures have been set and will be marketed to leading Groups in order to spread THE CAT's Message - one that is as clever as it is utilitarian.

Estimating that there are 2,300 Holidates (many undisclosed until Cali & I get resettled) to celebrate of which MANY deal with Food and eating Healthily is something more Seniors need to grab on to.


Wednesday, July 26, 2017 – 5:57 AM CST:  The Date is  rapidly approaching; therefore, I decided to send this Tweet out to: 

@JKCorden Going 2 B 65 on #August_9 & wld like 2 do #Carpool_CAR_eeokee w/U. Granted I cant #sing, I do've a dandy #RockNRoll #Dance #Style.


REQUEST: Going 2 B #65 on #August_9 & wld like 2 do #Carpool_CAR_eeokee w/U. Granted I cant #sing, I do've a dandy #RockNRoll #Dance #Style.

Thats short Notice, I know, but Miracles do happen and one of them is this long Life I've lived so far - being blessed is something many of us just do not reflect upon.  That's why EVENTOLOGY touches so many in so many Ways.
