Our Pumpkin Patch

27 November, 2017 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

Merry wanted to be married in a pumpkin patch, but we just couldn’t pull it off. I wanted a traditional Christian priest, but the Roman Catholic Church doesn’t perform outdoor weddings without a dispensation. I called the Episcopal diocese, then Greek Orthodox (where I had friends), Russian orthodox, and possibly a few others, but their […]

Letchworth

11 October, 2017 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

Letchworth I remember as a child old black-and-white movie reels projected on a wall. One of them was footage of a trip taken by my parents and grandparents to Letchworth State Park. I always meant to go ther some time with Merry and finally got the chance. Earlier this year, a reunited friend from high […]

Of Bits and Books

14 August, 2017 Ken Editorial & Discussion

When asked if I prefer books or ebooks, my response was thus given: If I merely want the knowledge, digital is fine. But if I want the EXPERIENCE of reading, the physical media is part of the content. I use digital media to keep up on countless fields, but if it’s something that I want […]

I Love Lyft

4 August, 2017 Ken Business & WorkEveryday Life

I’ve always been the DD or the guy people call for a ride. I love driving and love people. I have spare time, or like an excuse to get away from the computer screen. Ridesharing was a no-brainer. And Christina said I would be good at it. And I think I am. A few weeks […]

Almost a Past Life

26 May, 2017 Ken Family & Personal

Almost didn’t go to my 30-year high school reunion. The idea felt weird in an age of already keeping in touch with Facebook or people you already see regularly, and many of whom you really didn’t know well enough to keep in touch with in the first place, and have become essentially different people. But it […]

Cars

5 May, 2017 Ken Everyday Life

Last year I met with a couple regarding a wedding, and having already postponed it once due to weather I went out in a blizzard. I turned into a plaza, but my car didn’t. I displaced quite the boulder on a median, but apart from smelling but not seeing some fluid, I wasn’t too concerned. […]

A Bright Change of the Years

6 January, 2017 Ken Everyday LifeGames & Gaming

The air lately has seemed oddly like Spring and it whets my appetite for it. But I would have wanted a touch more of a snowy Winter I thought to myself, and so it happened — we will have brilliantly white snow on the ground for Little Christmas. I never did switch over my accounting […]

Second Summer, Then Winter

19 November, 2016 Ken Everyday Life

People wearing shorts yesterday, snow tomorrow. About a month ago, the leaves finally turned and now they’re almost gone. Heating and cooling companies have noticed very little break between air conditioners and furnaces the last few years and when I asked a knowledgeable entymologist how long a trend that would be, she said it won’t be […]

To Have a Pet, or Not Have a Pet

27 September, 2016 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

I love animals. Part of me wants to take most of the ones I see home, cuddle with them, love them. But the reality is different. First, I never liked caged pets. Logically I understand that most of them don’t mind and feel safe in a limited space, being well cared for otherwise. But eventually they die and […]

The Year is Dead; Long Live the Year

18 February, 2016 Ken Business & WorkChroniclesEveryday Life

For me, I’m not sure when one year ends and another begins. It’s bad enough they often assign a Winter to the year it ends rather than beings, in spite of a Solstice (or Equinox) being in my own opinion the middle of that season and not it’s birth. Whatever. I usually end my personal year […]
