Happy St. Andrew's Day!

Happy St. Andrew’s Day! Tonight the mighty, mighty Catamounts of Dalton High School, my alma mater, play in the AAAA state football play-offs against Sequoyah. Go Big Red!

Know(ing) news is good news!

I take that back - there is news today: I have a mail box (AKA pigeon hole) here at the school! See, you just learn something new everyday! Luckily, nothing too timely has been sitting in it the past two months.

No news is good news.

There’s no real news today. All’s well with the world…

It's snowing!

Actually, it’s mainly rain; the sun’s shining; and there’s not a chance of any of it sticking. But, hey, it is snowing!

Scottish Holidays

For those of y’all stateside who feel Thanksgiving just flew by and that you want to relish in that festive, pre-Christmas mood - celebrate St. Andrew’s Day this coming Friday! Although the fisherman and disciple of Christ never made it to Scotland while alive, many of his relics are now here, and he’s considered Scotland’s Patron Saint. Unfortunately, it’s not a national holiday.

Go Jackets!

Well, today’s the day — the Duel in Dixie — when we all shall “see the glory of the stompin’ of the Dawgs!” Actually, the game takes place after midnight here in the U.K., but that’s of no real concern. If I am able to listen to the broadcast on internet radio, I hope everyone at church will forgive me for possibly dozing off during the sermon.

Killing Time

Just waiting for my PowerPoint class to start… I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday! One of the other scholars asked me for my dressing recipe, so it seems a new Thanksgiving tradition has begun!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, I’m thankful that my email’s working again, that it’s a gorgeous day with bright sunshine here in Glasgow, that my dressing turned out well last night for dinner, and that the week’s almost over!

Email Problems

FYI, if you’ve sent me email the past couple days at my “@gttx.org” address, I haven’t gotten the message. I’ve been told that my fraternity’s Ethernet cable was severed by some nearby construction. So, please, either resend the message to me at kylekessler@hotmail.com or wait another day or so and send it back to kkessler@gttx.org. Cheers!

Good morning!

I believe I finally have most things updated here on the site… which now also includes photos!

For those of y’all who’ve seen my car (1990 Volvo), you’ve probably wondered about the Jeff Gordon sticker on the rear window. It was placed there by Candace Stevens, a friend of mine I met in Alaska of all places. But props must go to Jeff for winning his 4th Winston Cup Championship!

Miss Scotland

In other news, Miss Scotland placed second runner-up at the Miss World competition last night.


With merely one week left before the annual Kudzu Cup between Georgia Tech and the University of Georgia, what can I say but, “How ‘bout them Dawgs?” But, at least somebody in Athens has taken the time to stop and smell the roses.

Roll out the red carpet

Alas, Harry Potter has arrived at British cinemas… The movie’s already broken opening records here in the U.K. I’ll let y’all know if, and when, I see it. I assume they got that which way does a witch fly on a broom scandal sorted out.

dot com

Welcome to Kyle’s brand-spanking new “dotcom” world! It’s experimental, vanguard, and 100% fat free! It’s taken me almost 5 months to get this site up and working. (As you can see from the “This is a test!” message posted earlier.) So go get a Coke from the fridge then come back and peruse my little corner of the world wide web… Cheers!
