In Episode 2 of Kilos of Craic, Brian F., Dr. Don, and myself discuss the amazingly classic VW Beetle, our favorite year of the beetle, our first cars, Memorial Day, what it really means, and those in our own families that fought for our freedom. Brian goes on a rant about “Irregardless” not being a word and the misuse of “Xenophobia“. We also talk about the best “Honest” search engines on the net, like Dogpile and Duckduckgo. And finally, we talk about all the tech we loved in the 80’s and the movie, Tron.
In what was supposed to be Episode 2, I had technical difficulties and managed to only record 20 seconds of an hour long show. Starting the podcast back up is like riding a bike for the first time in a long time. At first, you’re a little shaky, but after a while, you’re riding like a pro. I do sincerely apologize to the co-hosts, Brian F. and Dr. Don and our listeners. We will be back next week with a new crazy episode full of shenanigans. Thank you all for listening and subscribing to the show. 🙂
In this, the first Episode of Kilos of Craic since we shut it down in 2011, Brian F. and myself discuss Ransomware, WordPress plugins, Grandad, K8 the Gr8, Website Hosting, Russian Pokemon trial, accents, and the fact that I sound like a hillbilly chipmunk.
Tune in next week for more hi jinks and guests.
Many of you may come to this blog from a Google search or social media link. If you read this in early to mid 2017, you may think that I’ve not been doing this long. You would be wrong in that assumption, but I can’t blame you for thinking that. Though this is technically a new blog on a new server, I’ve been blogging since 2005. Several friends and I did a fairly popular podcast from 2005 to 2011.
We stopped the podcast due to being burned out, I think. I don’t recall exactly why we ended it, but that seems to have been the reason. I ended the blog in 2013. At the time, I was working in the security field and couldn’t write about what I was doing. I still can’t, but I can write about what I’m doing now.
I, like so many other people, needed a voice again. The years of keeping my mouth shut and my head down had taken their toll. So, I decided to reactivate this url that had been sitting dormant for a couple of years.
The subjects of my posts may be a bit random, but they are based around politics, tech reviews, photography gear, photography, writing, and general observations from a unique American perspective. I also write about Ireland (long story) and am still working on a book of short stories about my travels through Ireland. I have published four travel photo books about Hibernia.
You may ponder, politics and tech reviews? They don’t generally go together, but my background is varied. I grew up in a business and majored in IT security before moving over to Criminal Justice. I am best known for my photography. Everyone needs a creative outlet, photography is mine. Though, I do dabble in writing fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. I am all over the place. It is due to growing up in a business and having to be multifaceted.
Now you know a tiny bit of the back story of this blog. Thank you for visiting the blog. Take a seat and enjoy the randomness. 🙂
