MARGHERITA PIZZA PIZZAZZ

Isabella’s Pizzeria Since both my wife and I are not pizza lovers, per se, we do not go to restaurants that specifically center their menus around the incredibly popular offering known as ‘Pizza’, but that scenario changed when we lived in Mandeville, Louisiana, a city located just north of New Orleans. A friend of my wife recommended a restaurant called Isabella’s Pizzeria, and so one Sunday after church we gave it a shot. We were not interested in the typical Pepperoni and Tomato Sauce with added Toppings […]

COMMENTARY DILEMMA PART III: NEW SPAM CHECKER INSTALLED

Reidentification of My Followers I have been remiss in posting new blogs of late because the massive revision work and republishing efforts involved with my first two novels, along with the commensurate completion of my latest creation, have all but chewed up the allowable time I had available. In the meantime, through all of that, my daughter, Stephanie, suggested I write a children’s book for my grandsons, Joshua and Daniel. I had begun writing the first part of that manuscript in spurts, but stopped when I ran […]

LEARNING TO WRITE: TO BE OR NOT TO BE

Falling Out Of Favor With My Nemesis I have recently discovered that my writing skills have been hampered by using one cursed word way too much. It is the glue word “TO”. It has become my easy sentence manipulator and has made my writing talents look less than professional. I have discovered that some sentences written in my previous articles have the word “TO” gluing phrases together as many as 3 or 4 times. That’s almost as bad as using adverbs more than absolutely (adverb) necessary. Let me […]

CAN EVIL PEOPLE BE SAVED_PART I: FIRST THOUGHTS

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay  My Thoughts On Judas Iscariot When Jesus Christ chose his apostles, the one he knew would later betray him was already possessed of the devil. Judas Iscariot was a lover of money above all else and this was his evil undoing. Even though he followed the Savior’s teachings for three years, his heart was bent on selfish ambitions. I have often asked Christian leaders that I associated with an ominous question. In spite of all biblical evidence to the contrary, was there any possibility […]

MY KINDLE DIRECT PUBLISHING EXPERIENCE: PART VI_HEADERS,FOOTERS, & PAGINATION

  Artwork By Stephen J. Key/SJKeyChronicles Frustrations Abound With No Clear Answers When I wrote my third novel, I thought I could save a lot of time and frustration by taking the interior matter of my raw manuscript and just pasting it over the highlighted part of the formatted interior matter of my previously published novel. To a certain extent, this worked fine. The correct margins were maintained and I was able to fixate the chapter titles, sub titles, and quotes in their correct style sets on […]

MY TREPIDATIOUS HEALTH CORNER TOPICS: KIDNEY KINKS I NEVER KNEW ABOUT

Image by Balik on Pixabay The Sad Fact About Defective Kidneys In Children    One  thing I hate to see happen is the various health problems that can affect children at a very young age. One issue that came to my attention was kidney disease in a child or young teenager. I mean, they are just starting out in life and facing problems that should be the exclusive domain of an adult. They haven’t even had much of a chance to abuse their bodies yet like those […]

SLASHING HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE COSTS: PART II

Image by SAIYED IRFAN A on Pixabay/ Text by SJKeyChronicles The Aftereffects Of A Recent Hurricane When Hurricane Michael hit the Panhandle of Florida in October of 2018, I feared the integrity of my home would be seriously tested by the anticipated wind gusts for my area. Even though we did have severe conditions and horrific rainfall, there was no resultant damage to my power lines or metal roof. But there could have been. One of my neighbors had a tree fall on the electrical service lines […]

RECONSTRUCTION ERA CHICKEN STEW WITH A ROUX

  What You Got In The House? I decided on the very day that I wrote this blog that I wanted some comfort food. I had been subjecting my stomach to three straight days of either spaghetti and meatballs with tomato based sauce or a meatball sandwich with the same. That much acidic infiltration into my intestines made me feel somewhat uncomfortable, to say the least. I had been avoiding those types of meals for so long that I had the misguided impetus to give them a […]

THE WARPED WISDOM OF MEIN ONE SON: THE BB KING SHAKES AND BAKES

This story was submitted by our son Eric Key. SJKeyChronicles.com does not condone any of his shenanigans carried out as a youthful misfit. Fortunately he has morphed into a respectable human being having put his misadventures behind him.  Hindsight Hallucinations My name is Eric Key and I must point out one thing as I begin this convoluted tale of mine. In today’s day and age, we are seeing more confrontations and disrespect towards our law enforcement officers. For the record, yes, I am pro-cop.  I’m not sure […]

MY NINE YEAR OLD LAPTOP WITH BROKEN CASE

Sad State Of Affairs My son Eric, who used to own a computer repair shop in Canton, New York, headed up the acquisition of a new laptop computer for me in the year 2010, and I have been using it for the last 10 years. He was able to get a good deal for me for about $700 back then. The only major improvements he made to it in that span of time was to upgrade the RAM and Hard Drive when the original parts became obsolete. […]
