State of the Site

I guess since I haven’t posted anything in three months I should probably put something up to let everyone know that I am still active even though it’s more on Instagram and Twitter than anything else. And as I write this, I am getting over a very bad cold that kept me out of work yesterday and my throat isn’t exactly 100 percent but I need to do this now.

Since I last posted (the last One Lone Cat vlog I did) I worked at my first Gem and Mineral show at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds. And then I followed that up two weeks later by working the booth at Herkimer Diamond Days. However, for some odd reason my younger nephew didn’t want to go to Diamond Days even though there was a car show as usual. I didn’t go to the car show so no video footage this year. I did have fun at both. I also took my nephews to the Herkimer County Fair again even though we didn’t do a whole lot this year due to lack of money. I wound up documenting this year’s fair on Instagram where we watched a circus and a Power Wheel demolition derby.

And when my nephews went back to Buffalo, everything slowed down because it’s fall again and as usual nothing happens in this area during the fall season that warrants a video or anything. The weather hasn’t been very good the last couple of months. It’s been rainy and it’s been very cold. However, I did start to renovate my house again. I started painting the living room, got rid of the couch in the living room which also doubled as my bed for the last year and a half and got a new chair. Right now I am in the process of replacing the living room window.

Also toward the end of the summer, I started uploading the remaining One Lone Cat vlogs and other videos that I uploaded exclusively to the site to YouTube because I was hoping to try again to regain my partnership after all the drama earlier in the year. But at the same time, I am sorry to say that One Lone Cat is on permanent hold right now because right now there really isn’t any more I can do with it without sounding repetitive. However, I do have some ideas for projects. For one thing, I’m toying with the idea of starting up the podcast. Then I also got another possible idea and that is to possibly do a sort of fanfiction where I decide to resurrect my Blackcatloner persona that takes place after I decided to transition from Blackcatloner to One Lone Cat and started uploading under my real name. Either way, it ought to be a lot of fun. Just need to get through the holidays first. Hard to believe it’s only two more weeks till Black Friday. It’s like where does the time go?

And I have an update on my weight loss: As of Wednesday I found out that I am now down to 185 pounds which means I lost over 75 pounds since April which is probably one of the biggest accomplishments I have ever done even though I haven’t worked out as much as I should have. Hopefully I can get back into that soon.

And that is pretty much the state of the site as fat as that goes. Keep your eyes peeled because soon I will be having new stuff coming.

Herkimer College Did Away With My Courses!- 8/31/17

A rant about Herkimer College’s decision to remove the Radio/TV Broadcasting program which I took as a student there. They’re also planning to get rid of the New Media program where I got my degree in earlier this year.

Life’s Too Short For a Fall Heat Wave

This week I talk about everything from the election to teaser trailers for upcoming movies. Plus I show off some more of Central New York’s famous fall footage.

A Walk on the Erie Canal Trail

In today’s Throwback Thursday video from 2010, I offer a video about the first time I went out for a walk on the Erie Canal Trail that runs from the old Fort Herkimer Church all the way to the Movac Ambulance headquarters near the Thruway entrance in Mohawk..
