The Journey Begins…

17 April 2009

Comments Off on The Journey Begins…

We just recently watched, again, The Lord of the Rings trilogy. And in some ways, this feels similar to that journey, though thankfully far less foreboding, less dangerous, and with far less at stake. But similar. Not that CT is Mordor or that there are any other parallels, but…hey, I’ve only gotten about 4 hours […]

Comments Off on Update: Flying Out!

The outpouring of support has been nothing short of amazing. I’m still a little short, but because of timing, had to make the call. This entire couple of weeks has been an exercise in faith, so it fits. So I will be leaving tomorrow morning, connecting in DC, and continuing to Hartford. Will be posting […]

For those that haven’t read the account of my dad’s passing, it is here. The funeral is going to be held Saturday at noon. Today being Thursday, there may be time for me to attend if I can raise the money for the flight. With being self-employed and trying to grow my business in this […]

A little background, otherwise very little of this post will make sense. My biological mom and dad divorced when I was 2. Mom moved my older sister and me across the country from CT to where she grew up, MT. When I was 5, mom remarried, and soon after my stepdad adopted us. My stepdad […]

Side Benefit of Social Media…

On Saturday, JoAnn wrote about the finding of my virtual twin on twitter. As strange and cool as that was, it has been outdone: I found my long-lost half-sister on Facebook. I’d been looking on and off for a while, hoping she’d eventually pop up. And she did. Yeah, there is a long story there, […]

And I Thought It Was Over…

Got another letter from Kenneth Cole’s Client Services Department today. Am assuming it is a result not just of the original letter, but some of the visits to the blog since the original post. If that’s the case, it is good and shows that Kenneth Cole is doing some sort of brand monitoring. Unfortunately, it […]

Nordstrom Rocks!

Comments Off on Nordstrom Rocks!

The latest update on the Kenneth Cole shoe debacle is this: I’ll be going in this afternoon to meet with the shoe department manager of the local Nordstrom’s, and they will either repair or replace…and if repair, in less than a week compared to the 4-6 weeks Kenneth Cole themselves stated. Don’t forget to back […]

Kenneth Cole Update

Comments Off on Kenneth Cole Update

Despite someone from Kenneth Cole corporate visiting the blog, there’s been no other response from them. However, I contacted Nordstrom via twitter yesterday. At first, was a little disappointed, since I was basically referred to their Customer Service. Then contacted customer service…and was referred to the store manager. At that point I was growing frustrated. […]

Disappointment with Kenneth Cole…

Comments Off on Disappointment with Kenneth Cole…

Late last year, I purchased a pair of Kenneth Cole shoes. By far the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. Love them. But early this year, the stitching that attaches the sole to the uppers at the toe began coming undone on one of them, then the other. (And no, my wear pattern isn’t at […]
