I finally got around from moving a page from a Raw HTML page and into the WordPress system.
That page is a minor update to the History of former radio station KAIR in Atchison. The station had left the air on Halloween in 2017 and was never able to return to the air before a statutory one year deadline kicked in. The FCC officially deleted the KAIR licence back in April.
Next up will likely be the Pioneer Radio History front-page.
Sine I haven’t had posted a long form post in a month and a half, I’ll just get to the point. Continue reading Fast forward
Five days post-surgery, and most of the pain has subsided. Although the doctor had prescribed Oxycontin and Hydrocodone, I’ve made minimal use of them. I only took 2, maybe 3, Oxy out of the 20 pills dispensed to me, and, even though I received two scripts for the Hydrocodone (one at the Urgent Care, the other from the foot Surgeon) I don’t have any plans to fill the second script. Otherwise, ibuprofen and caffeine are my drugs of choice.
My foot hurts, even after taking my prescribed pain medication.
Surgery was successful, albeit much more extensive than anticipated. My left foot’s big toe was shattered.
I also saw the out-of-pocket estimate. Oh boy. If I read my policy correctly, I’ve pretty much reached the out-of-pocket max for 2016 – and I still have 11 months to go.
The first week of 2016 has not exactly gone as planned.
Wednesday morning at a quarter after midnight, I attempted to walk down the driveway. Problem was, the snow has gotten so compacted it did turn to ice. After about two steps, I twisted my left foot, landed on my ass, and sent my phone flying.

For those that don’t know, I was adopted at birth. Recently, I decided to look into my biological family.
For me, it didn’t take that long. Armed with my biological mother’s name, I did a facebook search. It came back with results indicating that I had a “friend in common.”

I’ve added some photos from a little train-watching trip near Quenemo. Continue reading Website updates: 11/12/12
The bad news… I haven’t made a new post to this blog in a while.
The good news… I’ve at least found something to do (and get paid for it). It’s a contract job involving a computer and printer deployment for various offices in Northeast Kansas and Northwest Missouri.
Those trips have also netted me some road trip opportunities.
So, I’m coming into town to do my last minute shopping. I also brought my camera, just in case I saw a train on the Union Pacific line just north of Lawrence. I did see a train, and I stopped at Laptad’s corner to catch it. That’s when I did something stupid…. I locked the car… with the keys in it… and left my cell phone at home.
I waited a little while and caught another train, then I walked to a nearby house. No one answered the door. I did catch another train, as well as a car pulling into a nearby buisness. That buisness just happened to be Bulldog Tow.
So I walked in and explained that I left my keys in the car just up the road. The person at the front desk had a driver take me back to the car, contacted AAA on my behalf, and opened her up. As he was working on the van, another train arrived. I took a picture of that train, while the Bulldog rep took care of the paperwork and went on his way back to HQ. I procceded to town, bought the presents, and went over to Grandma’s to wrap them.
I guarantee that I’ll be seeing more trains on Christmas Day. I agreed to open the Santa Fe Station for the Eastbound Amtrak train.
