It’s been another hell of a week, but I knew it was coming. So I planned accordingly. Quite a few things fall by the wayside when my life gets too busy, but the first thing’s blogging. I’m still writing, of course. Both professionally and privately. I’m working on a project right now that’s a dating… Continue reading What I’ve done since the last time I blogged (last week just before #DigitalFreeSunday) – a long strange trip it’s been
That title is completely computer generated. Just typed ‘Hahahahaha’ in & then used predictive text to create it. Someone told me recently that nobody read content anymore.

Word of the year: How about Tindergarden? Or if that doesn’t grab your fancy, what about Hopfen-Smoothie? That’s a euphemism for beer, as Hopfen is the German word for one of beer’s essential ingredients. No? I’ve got at least one more. Here’s Posttruth for you. We’re already deep into the holiday season, and soon enough… Continue reading Tindergarden is the Ode to a Nightingale – choose your own Word of the Year
‘Hello Violet,’ he said. ‘It’s Uncle BK…‘ ‘Really? All the way from Germany?‘ ‘All the way from Germany, yes. I saw you got a hamster. A hamster named Alexander, right? Let me tell you about the history of the domesticated hamster,‘ I started to mansplain to my second oldest niece. ‘Got it covered, Uncle BK.… Continue reading ‘I got a hamster’ brought to you by Diamond Cookieoftruth
For quite some time, I’ve intended to change the tagline on this personal blog. I’m not certain how long it’s been, but it might’ve been from back when I started that if you clicked on my site, you’d see: ‘pay no attention to the man behind the curtain’ It was an allusion to the Wizard… Continue reading Missives from this corner of Old Europe
