Carol and Leif

by Ken on August 4, 2017

Something about this picture struck me deep. It elicited a heartfelt love and appreciate for a very special person in my life. Looking at this image, I see, in my mind, an earlier image – the first time I met Carol.  I was looking through a window of an outer door that was at the […]

by Ken on February 27, 2017

Google has terrifying power. We’ve given it to them as we have accepted their enticing gifts and conveniences. They have become de facto gatekeepers of knowledge. To date, they have exercised this immense and growing power with relative care and benevolence. But it has become an influence upon each of us as its reach now […]

Reevaluation of this blog

After the Election 2016

November 9, 2016

Every time I look at this political phenomenon I think of the movie “Wizard of Oz”. Several Quotes: “We’re not in Kansas anymore” – YEP “Dorothy, you killed her……long live Dorothy” – YEP. Initial look almost senses some relief among those that have been defending her. What hold she most have had. “Don’t pay attention […]

Testing the Gear 360

September 24, 2016

When I was deciding on the 360 camera to purchased one of my biggest questions was how did a 360 video look in raw form as taken by the Gear 360. The examples I could find were through Youtube and that is not a good test. Youtube degrades the video to make it publishable and […]

Today I lost my good friend Sam. He was my pet for nearly 30 years. His memory is spun among so many memories, nearly half a life for me. My youngest son, Bryan, was 3 when Sam came into our lives. Sam followed me from my A-frame, my 2nd home in Lutz and my abodes through many […]
