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 […]

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 […]

Graduation Day

18 May, 2013 Ken Business & WorkFamily & Personal

Christina graduates today, receiving a degree in English from SUNY Fredonia.  Not in a “couldn’t think of a major” sort of English, but “I’m going to copy edit the h3ll out of the universe and no one will stop me” kinda way. Oddly, it doesn’t feel like forever ago or yesterday that she came into […]

(Not) The Last Year

22 December, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalParkview

The Mayans didn’t see it coming, and neither did I. I had a mid-life crisis (sort of, I think), and a record year in Kentropolis. I have a phone that is practically a tri-corder, a new kitten (very possibly the cutest in the world, and the reincarnation of LadyBug), and wearing a tuxedo on a […]

I said it would change my life.

5 October, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEditorial & DiscussionEveryday Life

What I did cannot be accurately described as “buying a phone”.  In fact, I played with my Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket (S2) for several hours before thinking maybe I should use my “device” for calling someone.  In one fell swoop, I Freecycled my old phone, returned Bob’s camera on loan to me since who-knows-when, and retired my voice recorder.

Productive!

12 August, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeParkviewPhotography

The last couple weeks I’ve gotten a lot of stuff done — doing projects one after another, checking off house chore lists, and tonight I reached the rare goal of an empty Outlook inbox.  However, I had to cancel a service day for Earth 2 Mouth because I didn’t get around to coordinating it early […]

A long week, good and bad …

12 February, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalReligion & Spirituality

Inspired by a new friend on Facebook, I started making videos of myself talking, in particular, weekly recaps and previews of considerReconsider.com. I also made headway in organizing the Earth 2 Mouth program, coordinating at least one service date with D’Youville and through people there discovered another soup kitchen that serves in the evening.  Word […]

A Quiet Spring Morning … Wait, What?

1 January, 2012 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & Personal

After a bit of a pleasant sleep-in, I had tea with Merry on the front porch in my pajamas this morning.  It seems like there’s million things to do to start off 2012 and my brain’s about to freeze up.  Speaking of freezing up, it’s gotten dark and some “arctic blast” is supposed to come through in […]

A Good Year, One I Will Remember

23 December, 2011 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & Personal

I can’t say that financially we’re any better off this year than last, except that a few positive things looking forward are in place, such as a better plan for taxes and refinancing our mortgage into a lower interest HELOC.  But that’s not what life is about. Life is about me coming to peace again […]

Summer Update

14 July, 2011 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalParkviewWoodworking & Other Projects

We had very little Spring, fast-forwarding into Summer, with humidity high enough to not breathe well and hide in my (air conditioned) office or the basement for most of the day.  I finally finished the deck staining.  This time we let it dry for many days, but that is why it didn’t get done sooner.  […]
