Miscellaneous Nails and Screws

23 March, 2022 Ken Everyday LifeFamily & PersonalWoodworking & Other Projects

It’s been a few days since my Father-in-law passed away, and for the first time, I was allowed to go into his basement “inner sanctum”. It’s the magical place from whence came all sorts of built things over the years, including some hand-me-down tools and such. And of course, there were oh-so-many clock parts. He […]

Well into Autumn

2 November, 2021 Ken Business & WorkChroniclesEveryday Life

I was going to name this post “A Year Without Halloween” but that seemed too negative. It did make me a bit sad, especially when someone came to our door by mistake. Due to a cash crunch, we couldn’t afford candy, and there are hardly any kids coming out anyway. We didn’t even decorate, except […]

Beekeeping and Joywalking

20 October, 2021 Ken ChroniclesEveryday Life

I have no idea if this is Indian Summer, late Summer, or a mild Autumn. Such labels apply here less than ever it seems. But the bees in our first backyard hive have really ramped up their honey production this last month or so, mostly from “flute-plant” (knot-weed, which I thought my apiarist mentor David […]

Podcasting, Part 2

24 August, 2021 Ken Everyday Life

My Podcast, Contemplation in Action, is up and running with an introductory episode and one on bees and beekeeping (“The Bee Side”) with David Newman. The introduction (“Episode 0: What and Why”) was done with Paul Chernogorec, who in turn had me on his first podcast recording the other day. It was on the topic […]

Podcasting

14 July, 2021 Ken Everyday Life

I’ve been meaning to have my own podcast for some time, at the prodding of others who apparently don’t think what I say is a waste of words. A year ago I wasn’t even sure what it was or how to do it, but recently I was interviewed for the first time in one — […]

Almost Out of the Woods

13 April, 2021 Ken Business & WorkEveryday Life

Got my seconds shot for COVID-19 inoculation (Pfizer) at Roswell Park, Merry and her father getting theirs in Henrietta soon. We’ve done our best to stay out of crowds most of the time this last year and may have saved a few extra lives in the process. I just have not been on my game […]

The Final Month

15 December, 2020 Ken ChroniclesEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalPolitics, Economy, Science

Turned the last month-page of my “Cats in Space, with Food” wall calendar. I am definitely yelling “Jumanji!” at the end of December 31st. Apart from the stress of new plots of sedition almost every day since the election, and millions of people who flat-out lost their minds over everything from wearing masks and protest […]

A Very Long Year

20 September, 2020 Ken Business & WorkEditorial & DiscussionEveryday LifeFamily & PersonalPolitics, Economy, ScienceWoodworking & Other Projects

Dinner with friends on the back deck Friday — Mer and I, cousin George, Jeff and Mike. It was a soothing evening with perfect weather between some seriously hot days recently and suddenly cold ones. Topped it off with just Jeff and us two with an episode of “Lower Decks”. That’s the way I’d like […]

Staying Home; A Place Gone

10 April, 2020 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & Personal

We’ve sequestered ourselves for the most part for several weeks now. I’m used to working from home, and it’s kinda neat not having anywhere to be for long periods. Merry loves staying at home, and with the right equipment on the way, will be able to do some of her job from here. I’ve been […]

Another December

28 December, 2019 Ken Business & WorkEveryday LifeFamily & Personal

Around the anniversary of my Father’s death last year, I saw him in a dream again. Not sure if it was a message, but one interpretation is that he is moving on, and we may catch up down the road later on. Another lifetime perhaps. Images of Dunkirk prompted me to finally visit the ancestral […]
