Kraken taking a Holiday Stroll!


Who’s looking forward to the Muscatine Holiday Stroll?!

While I won’t technically be ‘strolling’, I’m going to be watching all from the Stanley Consultants’ Laural Building! That’s right, I’m going to be at the very first building I set my sights on in downtown Muscatine…and just in time for a very fun occasion.

I often hear people say, “The  Holiday Stroll is one of my favorite community events here in Muscatine.” I agree!   I can’t wait to see what this year’s event brings.  Remember Flynn Collier’s Christmas Karaoke? He’ll be back this year…

See you there. This will likely be my last appearance in Muscatine this year!

Micky’s Irish Pub on Halloween!

Monday, October 31, I will be at Micky’s Irish Pub & Grill.  11 South Dubuque St.  Iowa City, Ia

Mickys Irish Pub & Grill - Iowa CityHappy Halloween! I’ve been celebrating all weekend, but on the actual day of Halloween, I’m going to be at Micky’s Irish Pub in downtown Iowa City.

And by At, I mean On…the Roof. So those of you lucky enough to sit under the cool stained glass ceiling panels in the back of Micky’s can look up…and imagine I’m about to crash through at any moment…!

I’ll be there most of the day, from late morning on through till just about closing time…so there’s plenty of time to come by and say hello.


And in case you’re wondering, yes, I have photos of my amazing time on the iconic Old Iowa capitol coming soon:-) For those of you who just can’t wait, take a look at this flickr set.

(If you want to submit a photo for my ‘photo roundups’ just email it to   Almost all of the photos on my site are sent in by people like you!)

Monsters on the Morning News! With KGAN – CBS2

Today I was featured in my first ever live news cast! Wow – are those guys chipper for being awake at 4:00am!   I was up all night, but KGAN reporter Josh Schienblum, cameraman Drew, and the ‘Kraken managers” had to come down at 4:00am to get set up.

Two of my ‘managers’ (they like to think!) were there to talk me up.  Andrew K Anderson explained what I’m about and announced the upcoming UI Old Capitol visit. Ethan Anderson, who builds websites like mine, told how I keep in touch with people.  (The third Kraken collaborator, Jacob Lane, opted to get a proper nights sleep)

Watch a good clip from the newscast. (Notice how Josh has the anchors running in circles at the end:-)
