Re-purposing this Site

I’m starting to consider repurposing this blog, perhaps having it focus entirely on my recipes or something of that nature. I do still blog, but I’ve been primarily posting on my other domain name instead, kleineganz.com. I’ve been developing the persona and social media brand for Kleineganz for a few years now, and it’s now tied…

My Body is Confused

Hey, what’s this? A blog post? From little old me? Yup! My body is continuing to torture me as I enter the end-stages of perimenopause and I just really felt the need to write about it. If discussions of female bodily functions squick you out, you may not want to read this. I just really…

Diet-to-Go Meal Reviews: Day 13

Breakfast: Whole Grain French Toast, Mango Cranberry Syrup (300 Calories) The french toast was fluffy and tasty, and the mango cranberry syrup was a nice compliment, although I still prefer regular syrup with my french toast (just not the sugar free kind they’ve been putting in with some of my breakfasts, those are awful and was…

Geek Central

I’ve decided to try my hand at something new – managing a forum and a subreddit, both tied together and called Geek Central. For years I’ve spent time on various forums, each one dedicated to a single topic, and off-topic discussions were often discouraged. I’ve wanted a central place where folks like myself, with a…

6 Years Later …

This marks my 125th blog entry on this website. Technically I’ve owned this domain and website for over 10 years, but I officially transformed it into a blog in 2008. This site has seen it’s share of design and layout changes over the years since I decided to give this WordPress thing a try. Heck…

An Ode to the Soaker Tub

Many of you may not know of my deep and abiding love for hot baths. I grew up in an old house, with old plumbing and wiring.  In our tiny bathroom was an equally ancient bear claw tub.  The kind that had separate taps for hot and cold water, and no shower fixtures. I remember…

Why I Hate Mother’s Day

Let me preface this blog by saying that I am lucky to know a lot of amazing women who are wonderful mothers – my step-mom, my sisters, my mother-in-law, my sister-in-law, and several of my friends. This blog isn’t about the women in the world who are amazing mothers. This blog is about women like…

Losing a Pet

It’s been nearly a year now since I found my cat, Mori, lying dead next to his beloved cat tree perch. He’d been unusually quiet that day, but I hadn’t taken the time to notice because we were busy with the process of buying a new house, and getting ready to sell the old one….

New Blog

I am not shutting down this blog, but as you can tell I haven’t been updating it with any regularity. That’s because I’ve been primarily focused on my YouTube videos and a new blog branded for my YouTube channel, called Kleineganz.com. I may still blog here on occasion, but I’ll be primarily blogging on the…

Blasts from the Past

I was meandering around the Web Archive “Wayback Machine” trying to find some of my old content and I came across my first blog. It wasn’t anything fancy but it’s memories from 10 years ago that I want to preserve by re-posting them here. If you knew me 10 years ago, enjoy this blast from…
