Scooter News story number one!

On June 10 2010 Catch of the Day, on wheels was at two events which will post on the Comflm News site: , this story is the Macys Fashion Show for Pride Week 2010 and all the models are a part of the GBLT Gay Bi Sexual Lesbian Transgender group.
this story is a group of kids were protesting the MBTA for the rates which they abhore.
The story is approx 3 minutes and was captured on a Sony DVD Camcorder..

Both stories were captured on the Scooter.. keep watching for more Scooter News, One Senior on Three Wheels.. and no she does not like green eggs or ham..

June 10 2010 Scooter News, one Senior on Three Wheels!

J Aldrich, Catch of the Day, Video News, Freelance Reporting, Comflm Registry News, President, Reporter, Videographer, has a new Scooter.. Let's call it Citizen Journalism Scooter News!

From now on when there is some notice and planning the Scooter will assist J Aldrich capture events about town. She will be able to get to Town Meetings as well maybe in Hamilton along with food shopping and personal stuff like picking up heavy supplies at Staples.

J Aldrich has up to now been on foot using a pull bag on wheels. However, the seriousness of the osteo problem has been a great deficit in predicting whether she can physically operate on any given day.

On Thursday, she took a subway to Braintree to check out a Craigs list post for a scooter. YES! that will do fine, and was transported with scooter in truck to the Braintree T stop to take it home. Yes, it got her home all the way to Hamilton.

Yes, she scared a few people with the new driving, and herself, getting used to the thing. Pretty much the worst scarry thing I have done since the day of my wedding.. but much better outcome for sure. This morning a friend called worried sick that I was the one who had been injured on the trains tipping into the track. No it was not me, but I will be venturing out today to cover a story on the common and so please do not worry. I am very happy I made that choice to pick the thing up and get it home. I have been charging it all night and today after a quick jaunt to the store for coffee. This is a great surprise and welcome addition to my day.

I do not plan to use it every minute. I want to see how it operates as it is used and could have a major problem I have not seen. Safety is the issue here. But I love my new adventure a senior on three wheels.. Have a great day!

National Pride?? Month

Did you know President Obama has made June National Pride Month? That is a reference to the Gay Lesbian Straight Alliance, Don't Ask Don't Tell, Defense of Marriage Act DOMA Repeal he wants to take place, Youth Pride Week Boston this week. Parades are taking place this weekend on Saturday at noon. There is a schedule you can find on, June events to cover for exact times. Mostly, the Pride Brigade is a flaunting misrepresentation of the dislexic definition of pride versus shame. At one time in our history, this representation of pride was considered shameless behavior. So if you say shame less then they get it right.. but pride??

American pride is a long long long word. It is attained by the red streak through history. It is proclaimed on every Memorial Day, by thousands who visit graves and place a flag on a soldiers grave who died and added his blood to the long red streak through history. God Bless them for the pride they know and I believe in. They are our pride and joy, our true citizens of a higher order. The true politicians of Heavenly global surveilance and peace . They put their necks on the line for our great safety. Our borders protected by the great sea and the Sailors who spend their days defending our necks. They are our pride and joy. But Obama wants to replace the red white and blue with the Rainbow colored flag. He has to get unamimous consent of the army the navy and the airforce. And he thinks he can bypass that unity. I don't think so President Obama. You have got to be kidding.

Besides the Rainbow is a reference point to the wrath of God on a people that were messed up and gave no respect to the Jewish Noah. For a year he reminded them to come aboard and not be stubborn hearted and respect his personal faith and the messenger. They of course did not do that and we have the remarkable story of Noah and the remnant of the great boat on Mt Arafat to prove the truth. What was God mad at??

God decided he would not flood the world again. However, in Hebrews 12 of the New Testament there is a reference to the next rebuke. It will be a fire. So the wrath of God is real and the temptation to test Him is a foolish desire of the fool. Do not tempt the Lord of Hosts to rebuke you with a firey trial.

Sodom and Ghomorrah was burned, by the fire from heaven.. Lots wife turned to salt we still can visit. For the sins of Pride they were killed in a day. Do not tempt the Lord with this defiant ignorant flaunting of the very symbol of God resting from his anger .. and stir Him up. This is a great mockery of history. History wins. History always wins.

We the people do not support this mockery of morality and innocence. We do not respect the dyslexic defiance of double talk. We protect children we do not expose them to error confusion and lies. We put the Blood of the Lamb on our hearts and the angel of Death will pass by us. Will he pass by you?? That is the question. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Living God. For our God is a Consuming Fire.

Back from the Future!

I am back up and running and have sorted out some computer problems that have messed with me for a month.

Comflm Registry News, was at the Democratic Convention. I was able to get Chris Noonan Funnell to come again. She has her own blog and will be working on her posts. I am the videographer and so my efforts were to post video. Please visit, for my updates.

I will say my observation was correct to wish I had been able to cover the Republican Convention as Press. I did learn the ropes of what goes on first hand, and to my conclusion I operate better as a Press Vehicle.

I can just ramble on the experience as my mind is on overload on the whole thing. I want to convey some things however as the delay from attending and reporting is excruciating wait time. People just want the facts and nothing but the facts. That is what I want to convey.

So if I start at the beginning I can talk about the wall of traffic on that Friday afternoon. We started at 4pm and hit the pike. At 5pm we were at the Waltham 128 exit. We still had time to get there before the Press doors closed at 7pm so we thought. We made one pit stop for a coffee and kept going. At 640pm we were finally, in front of the DCU Worcester. I went in and made the connect. Of course there was an emergency at that moment and so I had my friend Chris with me to enter the building. She had time to park and come while waiting for the phones to clear.

Chris went to the Press Box upstairs and I decided to sit on the platform. There were only two other reporters there. One the DCU Videographer, and one a Fox News Videographer. I was sitting on the platform on the step portion. I taped with my Sony DVD camcorder thinking the next day would be better on the JVC Harddrive camera in case it went long that one tapes 5 hours. The coloring was off however on the Sony. I need to get that corrected somehow. The JVC usually over colors and so the two are something to be reckoned with in the split second of capture. I had an over zealous person reminding me not to go up and down on the platform once the Convention began so I used the monopod and had some destabilizing to deal with. Overall, it was great on the platform.

Day two we both decided to go to the Press Box. I assumed the staff would not appreciate my cameras as they are not the big heavy cameras. I have disability issues and so that is not a good fix for me. I use the small cameras. I am not TV ready. I am just reporting for record.
I brought my dubbing machine and proceeded to set up an area in the seating area. We got two seats near the end. I had a plug under the chair, my own shock absorb plug, and we were set to go. I fastened my JVC to the chair in the cup hole on a monopod. That way I could use the small tripod to stabelize my wandering captures. It was great however, being on the end, allowed some to decide to stand and sit on the cords which can back fire the cameras and kill them. I caught them and spoke to them but they still wanted to do it. I could have hooked the camera on the next seat as well. Learning experiences are really tedious tense trouble. And of course some decided to use the camera as a hold on to exit the step and that moved my focus while I was out and off the object taping. I had taped some tape to the pole but needed some flexion to turn it at times. That flexion was the area they could mess with my shoot. Oh well, the sound was the best ever for one of my camcorders.

Sound was over loud in the DCU back of the camera podium. In front the people could not hear. I decided to only wander behind and up to the front of the podium to keep my sound accurate.

As for plugs there were plenty of outlets. As for internet ?? no plugs wifi.. was problematic and had to be assisted to get on. No sound box in the downstairs Press Room. Anyone like WGBH had to be near the Press first floor area to get a boom box.

When I encountered the above problems I decided to keep my wandering to a minimum. I lost my packet three times and so missed the entire Press Conferences all day. That was one of my biggest things. But my coverage was great. I wanted Candidate coverage. Will have to rely on big media for that one.

Overall, the experience was awesome. The DCU had awesome food for the Press. In spite of the comments from the speakers, we were wined and dined to not care. I took a shot of the table of food. I was impressed. No chips to be found. Just good wholesome food and of course soda.

The Watchman . Org, Israel News on site..

Extra Prayer Alert, June 1

The Seizure of the Gaza Flotilla
By now everyone knows of Israel’ situation with the “peace activist” ships that wanted to brake the blockade of Ghaza. We want you to have the live footage of what really happened, so that when media and the governments of the world cry “murderers”, you can know the truth. In this video clip you will be able to see what happened as the soldiers arrived on the ship via a rope from a helicopter. They expected that they might be met with some shoving and a few punches, after all the ships’ organizers had repeatedly said that they came in peace! But instead, as the Israeli naval personnel boarded a flotilla of six vessels attempting to violate the maritime blockage on Gaza, militants onboard the Mavi Marmara attacked Israeli naval personnel with live fire and weaponry including guns, knives, metal pipes, and clubs.
After some soldiers were beaten, stabbed, thrown over and almost lynched, they had no choice but to use force. The Israeli soldiers came armed with pistols (for self defence) and paint ball rifles!!
Gaza flotilla participants had created a war atmosphere before confronting Israel. Participants chanted Islamic battle cry invoking killing of Jews and called for Martyrdom. The website of Al-Jazeera reported Saturday that flotilla participants “have announced their determination to use resistance to any attempt at piracy by the Israeli occupation." Meantime, the same Arabic news channel aired footage on

Sunday of Muslim passengers aboard the Mavi Marmara chanting the chilling Islamic battle cry: "[Remember] Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return!" Khaibar is the name of last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army, marking the end of the Jewish presence in Arabia in 628.
See the clip:
Summary by Intercessors Network:
“Overnight (30-31 May), Israeli naval personnel boarded a flotilla of six vessels attempting to violate the maritime blockage on Gaza. Militants onboard the Mavi Marmara attacked Israeli naval personnel with live fire and light weaponry including guns, knives and clubs. Numerous Israeli soldiers were injured as a result of the extremely violent ambush, two of them seriously while three are in moderate condition. The final number of militant fatalities has yet to be released, but initial reports place it at nine. Those vessels that reacted peacefully to the operation were escorted unharmed to Israel, as had happened with previous vessels that tried to violate the maritime blockade.
Although this is still an ongoing event, several facts are already clear:
The intent of the militants was violent, the methods they employed were violent, and unfortunately, the result was violent.
The attack on the Israeli soldiers was premeditated. The weapons used had been prepared in advance. Huwaida Arraf, a flotilla organizer, foreshadowed the violence with her statement that: “They [the Israelis] are going to have to forcefully stop us.” Bulent Yildirim, the leader of the IHH, one of the primary organizers of the flotilla, announced just prior to boarding: “We are going to resist and resistance will win.” The militants whipped up the boarding crowd by chanting “Intifada, intifada, intifada!”
It should be noted that the Turkish organizing group, IHH, has a radical anti-Western orientation. Alongside its legitimate humanitarian activities, it supports radical Islamic networks such as Hamas, and at least in the past has supported global jihad elements, such as al-Qaeda.
Israel was justified under international law in acting against the flotilla. A state of armed conflict exists between Israel and the Hamas regime that controls Gaza. Hamas has launched 10,000 rockets against Israeli civilians. At present, it is engaged in smuggling arms and military supplies into Gaza, by land and sea, in order to fortify its positions and continue its attacks.
Under international law, Israel has the right to protect the lives of its civilians from Hamas attacks. Consequently, it has undertaken measures to defend itself, including the imposition of a maritime blockade to curb Hamas rearmament. Israel cannot allow a sea-corridor to open to Gaza, a corridor which would allow weapons and terrorists to freely enter the Strip.
The flotilla organizers made clear that their primary goal was to target the maritime blockage. Greta Berlin, a flotilla spokesperson, told AFT news-agency on 27 May that “this mission is not about delivering humanitarian supplies, it’s about breaking Israel’s siege.” This fact is demonstrated not only by their words, but by their actions. Flotilla organizers turned down repeated Israeli offers to land the vessels in the Israeli port of Ashdod, and to transfer their aid through the existing land crossings, in accordance with established procedures.
Moreover, while the organizers claim to have humanitarian concern for the residents of Gaza they did not have similar concerns for the fate of the abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, and when asked, refused to make a public call to allow him to be visited in Gaza by the Red Cross.
The organizers were aware that their actions were illegal. Under international maritime law, when a maritime blockade is in effect, no vessels - either civilian or enemy - can enter the blockaded area. In line with Israel’s obligations under international law, the ships participating in the protest flotilla were warned time and again that a maritime blockade is in effect off the coast of Gaza.
When it became clear that the protest flotilla intended to violate the blockade despite the repeated warnings, Israeli naval personnel boarded the vessels of the flotilla, and redirected them to Ashdod. Due to the desire to avoid casualties and operational needs, including the large number of vessels participating in the flotilla, it was necessary to undertake measures to enforce the blockade a certain distance from the area of the blockade.
The soldiers who boarded the vessels did not carry arms openly, but were met with a violent ambush. Two soldiers were shot, one was stabbed and others were injured as they were set upon with clubs, knives, axes and heavy objects. They were in mortal danger and had to act accordingly in self-defense.
In Ashdod, the flotilla’s cargo will be off-loaded and the humanitarian items will be transferred overland to Gaza in accordance with standard operating procedures. The participants of the flotilla who need assistance are being treated in Israeli medical facilities. The rest will be subjected to immigration procedures applicable in cases of attempted illegal entry.”
Gaza flotilla: Statement by PM Netanyahu:
“Last night a regrettable incident occurred, during which people were killed and others were injured. IDF soldiers who were compelled to defend their lives were also injured. This incident was the result of an intentional provocation of forces which support Iran and its terrorist enclave, Hamas, in the Gaza Strip. This enclave, Hamas, has fired thousands of missiles at the State of Israel, and it is amassing thousands more.
This is a clear case of self-defense. Israel cannot allow the free flow of weapons, of and rockets and missiles to the terrorist base of Hamas in Gaza. It’s a terrorist base supported by Iran; it’s already fired thousands of rockets at Israeli cities; it seeks to smuggle in thousands of more, and this is why Israel must inspect the goods that come into Gaza. It’s also a clear cut of self-defense because as our soldiers were inspecting these ships, they were attacked - they were almost lynched. They were attacked with clubs, with knives, perhaps with live gunfire, and they had to defend themselves - they were going to be killed. Israel would not allow its soldiers to be lynched and neither would any other self-respecting country.
Our policy is simple. We say: any goods, any humanitarian aid to Gaza, can enter. What we want to prevent is their ability to bring in war materiel - missiles, rockets, the means for constructing casing for missiles and rockets. This has been our policy and yesterday we told the flotilla - which was not a simple, innocent flotilla - to bring their goods into Ashdod. We told them that we would examine their cargo and allow those goods that could not be used as weapons or shielding materials for Hamas into Gaza.

Five of the six ships accepted these terms without violence. Apparently, the sixth ship, the largest, which had on board hundreds of people, had a premeditated plan to harm IDF soldiers. When the first soldiers dropped down onto the deck of the ship, they were attacked by a violent mob and were compelled to defend their lives. That is when the unfortunate events took place.
We have a simple policy, which will continue. That policy is: we have no argument or fight with the population of Gaza. We are interested in allowing them to continue their regular routines. We want to prevent any humanitarian crisis in Gaza, but we are fighting the Hamas organization, which threatens the citizens of Israel and fires missiles at Israeli cities. It is our duty to defend the citizens of Israel, protect Israel’s cities and ensure the security of the State of Israel - and we will continue to do so.” End quote.
Israel is currently being targeted in a media war that is unprecedented in scope and intensity.
This is not a battle about Gaza. This is a battle between fanatical Islam agenda to conquer the democracies of the West with Israel first in line.
PRAY that the truth will come out!
PRAY that the lies will be exposed!
PRAY that the carefully planned provocation spearheaded by Turkey in corporation with Iran, will fail!
God bless you as you pray,
Lars and Harriet Enarson
