Does Wanting to Cuddle Make Me a Creeper?

10 February, 2015 Ken Editorial & DiscussionPolitics, Economy, Science

The Cuddlr app came out for Android, but I still am not sure about it. Apparently it’s doomed to failure according to critics. Is it due to collective social awkwardness toward strangers and even friends? Or are we so touch-starved all around that holding hands or spooning is inseparable, in perception or reality, from sexual motives? […]

Meeting in the Dreamworld

8 February, 2015 Ken Family & Personal

I woke up excited, then overwhelmed to the point of tears. Mer suggested I write this all down while it’s fresh in my mind. I was in the dining room of my family homestead in Dunkirk, where my grandparents lived. Merry, Christina, and the step-family were there, perhaps others, and I was using it for a […]

Handwriting: Looking Back at 2014

2 February, 2015 Ken ChroniclesFamily & Personal

I was scanning the checks part of my statements from my business account, when I saw ones in my wife’s handwriting. I thought I had the wrong account — until I realized that was a year ago. In January, the checks looked normal. In February, Merry wrote my checks for me because of my hand […]

Vegas-Arizona Trip 2015

1 February, 2015 Ken ChroniclesEveryday LifeFamily & Personal

Finally managed to visit my Dad again in Sun City. Christina wanted to visit her childhood friend Lizzy and her new baby, so we took a plane to Vegas first. On the plane, I had a philosophical discussion with poker professional Phil Ivey’s uncle Xeno, and Christina lost a notebook of writing, sadly. Daughter’s adventures while […]

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, […]
