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 […]

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.” […]

Enough already. Really, enough.

16 April, 2014 Ken Everyday Life

I like snow. I even like driving in it. I like Winter. But this is just too much. Polar vortex, two blizzards … I don’t know whether to blame the Jet Stream or the fact that God hates Al Gore. It was okay that I got my injury during  time it made sense to stay […]

My One-handed, Left-handed Months: The Start of It All

16 March, 2014 Ken ChroniclesEveryday Life

Yesterday, for the first time in almost two months, I signed my signature with my right hand. Until now I’ve been signing it with my left hand — backwards — and since it’s a scribble either way, no one will notice. Where do I start? On January 19th, a Sunday, I was working on some […]

Yes, I’m Adjusting and I’m Trainable

15 June, 2013 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalWoodworking & Other Projects

I wrote about my one last visit to Christina at college a Saturday in April, but didn’t mention I especially liked picking up one of harmonicas lying around to collaborate in a random jam session with Christina and a friend. If I ever learn violin, Merry will demand a banjo and we’ll have plenty of […]

Maybe I’ll Just Fiddle with It.

7 June, 2013 Ken Everyday Life

I felt a growing anticipation as I neared the mall. A brother arranged it because I didn’t have the money at the time a few weeks earlier — it was a salew of the day. When I got there I had to unzip her — if it was a her — like a new mother […]

(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 […]
