So far this year has started
off wonderfully. I have made a few promises to myself ,
not to look back , but to look forward , and most of all
, to not overlook the present. Learning to Live in the moment.

2013 Turned out to be a good
year work-wise and this winter has as well, due to the snow
removal aspect of our operations. Takes a lot of pressure
off me during a time when we look forward to implementing
new business improvements. Some years past have not worked
out that way. See previous year below
I also have been fortunate enough to be able
to do some traveling during our slow season.
Las Vegas - Tahoe - Reno Trip with Matt Houser
and his cousin Jason - Good Times. LINK COMING
Florida - Tampa - Ybor City - Clearwater
- Fort Myers - Everglades - South Beach Miami-Palm Gardens
- A whirlwind tour where I met with friends , family , and
my own solo adventures LINK COMING
Maybe 2013 will be better. I believe it is
up to me to make that Happen.
Fall 2012 - worked and worked and did more
work. Come 1/ 2013 - broke again. vicious useless cycle.
I intend to redo this website
someday and archive all these past 10yrs
Meanwhile , see Kasualkb's
log for previous log entries and current archives 2002
Getting my groove back since
pneumonia. Started hiking again ...6/11 went to Block Island
...did some beach walking and trail hiking. Much different
from the woods. Beautiful in its own way. Sea views from
cliff edges can't be described. I'll put some pictures up.
Have a number of my upcoming weekends lined up as I usually
do. - Long Island next weekend , family reunion ....Pennsylvania
party weekend the following , 10 guys , a house , alcohol
, paintball and white water rafting.
Strangecreek. Beautful weekend
and weather , spent some time at the creek. Started off
a little Effed up but I persevered with a smile :-) Partied
with friends old and new. Ryan Montbleiu Band was my favorite
this year though I did dance my ass off to some of the late
night cabin bands.
I do need to remember to
bring a handtruck next time. The hike thru the woods is
insane with all my shit. Duly Noted.
2012 - WHERE IS THE SNOW ?
I've done zero skiing thusfar this winter.
WORMTOWN MUSIC FESTIVAL
SEPTEMBER 16-18, 2011
Another killer weekend. Definite contrast
to strange creek. I woke up a sweaty mess at strangecreek
, where this weekend , i froze my ass off. Otherwise , no
complaints. Good time. Kind of the final hurrah of the year.
Safeside Chimney Fall is here , now.
August 2011 CREEK FEST
Billy and I met up with neen
and sean for a pretty cool weekend. mike and brian were
also up there with their crew. Traffic up sucked (and back
was worse) but we made it in time to see Zach Deputy and
then Ryan Montbleau Band , both totally rocked , they are
Billy's new Fav bands. Was a pretty decent weekend. Fri
night the best , great in fact .... sat started off good
with some river adventure fence hopping and valley traversing
to get some water relief .... some good bands , some good
drink , some good company , but I started losing interest
when max creek went on their 5th hour of their 6 hour set
.... SIX HOURS !!! They took a break at some point , I joked
with peeps about their 3 hour , 4 song set .... LOL ...
Sun kinda sucked in the rain and again the traffic blew.
Getting Billy and Neen back in the Fest spirit and getting
my first and certainly not my last glimpses of Zach and
RMB made the weekend overall a positive experience.
2011great weekend , though it was hot as
balls , hit 99 degrees friday ...was like 80 at night. Caravan
of thieves , Sister sparrow and the dirty birds , Elvis
costello all rocked. But Janes Addiction was ferocious ,
Perry farrell was fucking with the crowd , while swigging
whiskey , and Navarro was just blowin hippies heads off
with sick licks ....wild wild show. I was slam dancing in
the front with some game young hippies , while the older
dead heads kinda left the area. Good times , despite not
being allowed to bring alcohol for the almost 1 mile walk
to the stage ...between distance and heat , it was quite
difficult to keep a happy buzz going. Was cool to be on
the water , but the bridgeport sound isn't nearly beach
like inviting. All in all , good weeekend with some good
Ziontific June 2011
/ small festival in stockbridge vermont , behind a river.
Beautiful sunsets over the mountain. Some crazy weather
, HOT , then wet/cold overnight , some rain .... all in
all was good though. It was its first year , but it was
well run , with some good people and great music. More rap
than I listen to usually but still good. Marisa came up
with her RV and had a cool set up with some of Rhythmic
Circus --they had a sat am set , I was thinking that was
kinda bummer , but in retrospect , being first made them
unique , mid day people start going about other activities
....I had nothing to do but nurse my hangover with some
bloody mary's listening to them jam...started off sitting
and watching and ended up dancing . My friend Jen ,who came
up with me , had her chair massage booth set up , her first
time doing that as a festival vendor. She did well. I'm
happy for her , as she just got certified and this is ,
from my view , a beginning launch of her career. Pretty
neat , I remember my beginnings ....
I'll have pics on my picasa
May 2011 Strangecreek -
Good times , camped with some
good peeps , danced to some good music , drank lots of good
alcohol , sucked down some good jello shots , chilled to
some good drumming , bathed in some good river water , and
ate some good jambalaya. Definitely a must do again. I miss
festivals. KB See personal Journal for details.
