Q&A About My Marriage

28 August, 2014 Ken Uncategorized

{I found these in my notes (8/12/1998), but I don’t recall the context … it was just obvious they were my answers.} How did meeting her change your life? She’s was the ideal mate since we met, though I didn’t realize it right away. I had a lot of emotional baggage at that time, and she […]

A More than Fair Fair

25 August, 2014 Ken Uncategorized

Around 1.2 million people were there this year — a record. And it was the first time in years the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra attended, on Vet’s Day. The parade was just after mid-day, then I worked the Masonic ID Program, then met up with Merry for the free concert, with a patriotic theme and fireworks, […]

Pirates and Jedis and I

27 July, 2014 Ken Uncategorized

I didn’t participate much in Star Wars Bison’s Night this year, but I got free tickets to the Pirate’s Night because I made a graphic for the video presentation. But on an odd note, someone posted on Facebook a picture of me they found in a friend’s son’s scrap book. Seriously. As a Jedi. It […]

Christmas in July?

23 July, 2014 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalParkview

Last Sunday, I had a party, “Ken’s Summer Backyard Get-Together Luau Party Bash Shindig”. The description: “Kinda like Christmas in July, but the presents are food and good company. A holiday for framily, facebook friends, business associates, tai chi students, and wandering vagabonds. May involve extreme s’mores after sundown. Alcohol optional, kid-friendly, and games possibly.” […]

Holding onto Paper, Data

8 May, 2014 Ken Uncategorized

I’ve been somewhat briskly digitizing old files in my drawer and filing cabinet. It’s funny how even old insurance bills for a car I had years ago wells up sentiment. Nothing in particular, just the general psychological cling to the past being remembered. The business records are easier to scan and toss, and I’ve even tossed […]

The Bee is the Thing

19 April, 2014 Ken Woodworking & Other Projects

This is the second time I’ve dreamt of bees this week. The two queens (5-frame nucs to be precise) we ordered are about a month out, and the clock is ticking on getting hives ready, one reclaimed from the abandoned boxes, and one new from a retired carpenter who is taking up bees himself. Okay, […]

Enough already. Really, enough.

16 April, 2014 Ken Everyday Life

I like snow. I even like driving in it. I like Winter. But this is just too much. Polar vortex, two blizzards … I don’t know whether to blame the Jet Stream or the fact that God hates Al Gore. It was okay that I got my injury during  time it made sense to stay […]

Dad Occupation: Not quite an exit strategy …

12 April, 2014 Ken Business & WorkFamily & Personal

My daughter asked me recently to take down an embarrassing part of my LinkedIn profile, now that she links to me as a professional herself: Dad Christina’s Family 1991 – Present (23 years) My most important job, and a priority ongoing project. I started out as a feeder, cuddler, diaper changer, burper, and did other […]

My One-handed, Left-handed Months: The Start of It All

16 March, 2014 Ken ChroniclesEveryday Life

Yesterday, for the first time in almost two months, I signed my signature with my right hand. Until now I’ve been signing it with my left hand — backwards — and since it’s a scribble either way, no one will notice. Where do I start? On January 19th, a Sunday, I was working on some […]

“Lake Effect Blizzard of 2014″

7 January, 2014 Ken Uncategorized

Sometimes there’s a house across the street, sometimes it’s uncertain. Wind chill? My mailbox is attached to the house on the front porch and I’m probably not going to get dressed head to toe just to check it. Pajamas, bacon chowder, call my Dad, catch up on blogging. Maybe take down some Christmas decorations now […]
