The creative writing, observations, experiences, and opinions, on life, and the world around him, by Kiril Kundurazieff; taking one step at a time on the Journey of Discovery, and Enlightenment, that every individual must take from the cradle to the grave.
A day that will live in infamy, for Boston, and America, began on a wonderful, exciting, note and while my friend and I have been as riveted and horrified by the images we have seen since we got home, Monday evening, I want to share a pair of images that, I hope, will bring a smile to your face, and help re-enforce the messages about the usefulness of social media that this series is sharing.
I have written and blogged since 2002, yet it never occurred to me until a few months ago, when a friend suggested it, that MS Word could do wonders for my grammar and punctuation.
Up until fall 2010 I only had MS Word 2003 on my computer and rarely used it; then I took a series of computer classes to learn 2007, and my eyes were opened up, slowly, to new possibilities. Then a broken ankle and other distractions came along and plans to put into practice what I’d learned went out the window for a year.
It has taken focus, concentration and determination to get into the habit of writing my blog posts first in MS Word. Old habits die hard, very hard.
Unless it is in the most veggie obsessed precincts of the great state of Texas it is not unreasonable to expect that a taco would consist of the shell, some sort of meat, cheese and lettuce, topped by sour cream, guacamole, taco sauce, or salsa (the hotter and spicier the better!)...but this is Houston, a town that is, I keep reading, the most diverse foodie paradise in Texas, if not the USA (award-winning chefs are routine and quality food trucks are freakin' everywhere!), so what do I know?
Due to financial constraints I have not eaten out at anything other than the occasional Jack-in-theBox, or Whataburger, in months, so I've not explored much of what this city has to offer (the last, I think, were a couple of visits to Jones Halal on Fondren, near Bellaire Blvd.). My only dining review in Houston, so far, was of the original Cafe Pita+ (I HAVE eaten at 5 other establishments, but those were before August 2013).
With only $105 a month in SNAP (food stamps) to play with this bachelor is slowly learning to eat healthy on the cheap and that is where this latest recipe comes in.
In the middle of March I weighed 194 lbs., without my clothes on...This morning I came in at 183. My ideal weight, for my age and height is around 170, something I've not been anywhere near in 20 years.
Do you use photos on your blog? Have you ever sat down to reflect on when and why this part of your creativity became a part of what you do?
I began seriously taking photographs as a teen, in the 70’s and many of those photos were of family pets. Little did I know that I would still be doing so decades later as part of a blossoming writing career.
In the 80’s and early 90’s my photos tended toward cataloguing trips to visit relatives in Arizona and Colorado. My love of history, reading and even my interest in writing, pretty much dormant in the 90’s, led me to visit Tombstone, tour the town and its historic graveyard, and pose outside the 100+ year old town newspaper. Little did I know that I would become an online journalist writing major exposes on my blogs.
So, there you are, a humble cat, bat, or rat blogger, with years of writing behind you, 100 visitors a day mostly via Google searches, the occasional comment, a few friends on Facebook and Twitter, still trying to figure out Google Plus, and fascinating enough to spambots that 3000 of them a day stop by your blog to say hello.
And now, here’s this website encouraging you to see how much influence you have on your fellow users of the internet, through your use of a select group of social media sites; It takes you more than an hour to stop rolling on the floor with laughter, get back in your chair, and check out the website to see what it is all about.
I first reviewed a book I read, on Amazon, in the year 2000.
In the years since I’ve only posted 59 more reviews, 8 of them cat-themed books.
In retrospect maybe I should have participated more on the site. God knows I have certainly read a hell of a lot of books in the last dozen years!
Amazon has evolved a lot since I first used it, and selling ebooks, and e-book readers is only part of the evolution.
It is very easy to review books and other products you have purchased from Amazon and those you have not, your member profile keeps all your reviews in chronological order and you can see comments people have left, and see how many people found your review helpful, or not.
My profile page has room for me to introduce myself, and list where I blog, as well.
