In May 2009, I began researching my thesis “For The Good Of The Service: Husband E. Kimmel and the Aftermath of Pearl Harbor.” This Sway contains pictures from that trip.
Today is another clean out the closet day so to speak for the blog/podcast. Below are videos taken during my travel to a conference at Millersville University in late April 2016. I don’t quite remember what I was going to do with them, but I have decided to post them now.
The first video is of general scenery outside the Amtrak train window with some rather poor, and thankfully mostly enaudible commentary.
The second video is of me boarding an Amtrak train during the return trip, and is taken from my point of view. I would like to express my appreciation to all Amtrak Redcaps without their assistance it would be very nearly impossible for me to travel.
The third video is of the Jurassic World Display put up by the Franklin Institute at 30th St. Station Philadelphia, which has since been removed; I found it to be quite remarkable.
Incidentally, I believe the Jurassic World exhibit is still running at the Franklin Institute, and is well worth the time.
In mid-March I received an email requesting that I post the following supportive links for people with disabilities. It has taken far too long for me to post them for a variety of reasons. Not the least of which was not knowing exactly where to put them.
- Disability Accommodation Cost Guides
- Thriving in Trade School with a Disability
- Discrimination And Addiction: How To Overcome Prejudice Without Relying On Drugs Or Alcohol
- Accessibility and Employment: What People with Disabilities Need to Know
- Wheelchair and Handicap Ramp Cost Guide
- Dating When Blind or Visually Impaired — From Single and Ready to Mingle to Off the Market
- Disaster Safety for People with Disabilities: What to Do When Emergency Weather Strikes
- Social skills for adolescents and adults with autism
It is difficult to receive the right kind of assistance when one does not know the questions to ask.
My thanks, and apologies to the person who made the request.
Last week, I changed web hosts from Network Solutions to Hostwinds. Because Network Solutions gave me some suggestions that broke my self-hosted WordPress sites. Additionally, hosting WordPress has gotten too labor-intensive. So, I have chosen the premium option at WordPress.com. It gives me the ability to have a custom domain (keegan.blog), and it has 99% of what, for me, makes WordPress attractive. Furthermore, I came to the decision that there is no need for a separate podcast site. The Keegan Podcast is now part of The Keegan Blog. As a result, the podcast can no longer be updated through iTunes. But, no one listens to it anyway.
I have change the URL for the Keegan Blog: keegan.blog. I have also changed hosts. While 90% of the blog transferred properly, I still have a punch list. Please bear with me as I fix these minor issues. Thank you for your patience. Additionally, if you find a post that isn’t functioning properly, please leave a comment; and let me know.
My hope is that this change will remove some of the backend problems I’ve been experiencing with the blog.
