Venting.... Please see the Event Notices in the Sidebar....

People sometimes bring up the issue of Handicapped accessibility here and there in the City of Kingston...

Whilst frankly, non-Handicapped accessibility would appear to be a major issue here in the City - as well!

When does this roadwork - this constantly changing constellation of roadwork - on Broadway - by the YMCA/Rite Aid/old Muddy Cup/Planet Wings Intersection (reaching out its spidery tendrils past Susan Street and the street that leads to Benedictine Hospital, etc...

END?????

I support the DPW - and work such as this apparently has to be done - but OMG!

Isn't this a case where it might be best to work in the early mornings and early evenings when there is less traffic - and the temperature is cooler - and some of the businesses that ARE still alive on Broadway (I guess the DPW guys are probably eating a lot of Texas Hots and wings...?) might be able to make a (non-DPW related) buck?

How is business folks? Am I wrong?

Who knows...

Maybe I am.

But iyiyiyi...

I'm sick. I just got stuck in the Broadway roadwork traffic jam under the railroad bridge (where the cracks remain...) without any (my problem, I know) air conditioning...

And sometimes I feel like - I truly do feel like - just taking a "For Sale" sign and planting it front and center [citizen activism is pretty much a thankless "job" anyhow - and the chances of a KINGSTONIAN (including those much more qualified and skilled than me) getting a job IN Kingston are looking pretty slim...)

Bad day here.

I tried out a workshop on making money via the Internet - and all ya' gotta' do? Pay them some money... and then, later, some more money... and then later, maybe (of course this is up to you...) pay them more money...

A-yep.

Remember that lawn sale I had (I posted about it) where I earned 50 Cents?

At least that didn't cost me anything except for my own (foolish and fruitless, it turns out) sweat and discouragement...

On top of discouragement...

On top of discouragement...

On top of a case of PTSD that is not handling any of the events taking place in our society or my personal life all too well...

Why me? Why not? Could be worse. Could be better.

What is up with this City?

I'm feeding parking meters uptown for what?

I'm doing everything I can (I've even sold old copper pipes to the junkyard) to try to keep the boat afloat...

Boices Dairy...

How are you feeling?

"Got milk?"

Yeah. I guess... Huh?

Iyiyiyiyi.

I'm not pointing fingers. I'm not cancelling my events. I'm not (as of yet) giving up...

But the clock is ticking... and this bird might just decide (not that anyone much cares) to (just like how many other Kingstonians have been doing... are doing... are planning to do...) FLY.

Its going to get worse?

That is what they (this seems to be the general consensus around here) say...

WORSE?

Something is very, very, very, very WRONG.

[My opinion; you are welcome to your own.]

I'm pleased to learn that Boices Dairy DOES (according to an entry on KingstonCitizens.org - via my email) have a contract with the Kingston City School District. The last that I heard (or read) was that the school system had contracted with someone (It wouldn't be anything new) outside of the City limits. Like I said, bad day... Grumbling... So don't take this too seriously... Check it out for yourself... And just consider this creative writing (on the down side) --- instead. Clowns generally do have a depressive edge, from what I've read... and I'm not exempt.

we want to know what you are doing to make this city a better place to live.
Why are you selling copper? Do you have a job? KPA is not a job. You seem to want want want, but we need taxpayers that are working who are spending money in the city rather then complain, and take from the system.
