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 […]

Finally Snowing

28 December, 2015 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

It’s dark and the recycle truck is finally picking up. And it’s finally snowing — really snowing to where it doesn’t melt when it touches the ground. It’s felt like Mother nature hit the pause button for too long. It just didn’t feel right and I’ve been out of sorts. It’s been often warmer here […]

Will the Force Awaken?

20 October, 2015 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & Personal

It’s hard to describe in a way most people will truly appreciate, but in a way, two things sacred to me as a child were Star Wars and Disney. They were part of how I imagined the world could and should be. But I’m all grown up. I still believe in Santa Claus, in Chivalry, […]

What a Week, What a Summer

26 August, 2015 Ken ChroniclesEveryday LifeFamily & Personal

Being finally cool outside again, I just went for a walk around the block, by myself. It would have been the perfect day to take Pasha for a walk, but she died last Wednesday morning, in her sleep and the usual “animal cracker” pose. We got used to checking her breathing when we found her […]

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 […]
