A Lifechanging App

31 December, 2014 Ken Everyday Life

In July, I started using “Daily Success“, an Android App that really changed my sense of productivity and got a lot of things accomplished. A LOT. It enables you to check off and track your completing of daily tasks. Sometimes the bear ate me, but more often than not I do all or most of the […]

“Relentless Arctic Attack”

21 November, 2014 Ken ChroniclesEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalParkview

That’s what the news was calling the nation-wide pre-winter storms, and the news has been on almost constantly for the last four days. I can only laugh. The images and time-lapse of the front moving in were amazing, the amount of snow record-breaking (nationally, with 74 inches falling in 24 hours) and then a second […]

Go fly a kite? Okay.

23 September, 2014 Ken Uncategorized

Sunday, I finally went kite flying. It’s been a couple years, maybe more. I still feel the burn. I don’t remember it ever being that physical. I wore the white Kung Fu top with green piping I was saving for just such an occasion, with my “noisy pants” Merry hates so much, that I discovered […]

Journalizing the 219

3 September, 2014 Ken Editorial & Discussion

When the 219 resumed construction after all these years, I decided to capture it on film (figuratively these days). As I travelled to and from the farm so many times a year all those years, I captured their progress … building bridges and embankments, landscaping, machines, everything. Even what looked like a tree farm. Apparently, […]

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, […]
