New Site

As 2016 wound down and I started thinking about things that I really ought to be doing, and I added JonathanCavell.com to the list.  This was partly because I missed occasionally writing out a blog post or reviewing a book, but honestly it had most to do with the existing…

1000!

This post is the 1000th one that I’ve made on the Blog of Burgher Jon and I thought it would be worth it to mark the occasion. The first blog post appeared (actually on Blogspot) back in September of 2007 and since then 10s, maybe even 100s of people have…

I’m Back

I haven’t been posting here much and the reason is simple.  For the last several months I have been struggling to learn what I want to have an opinion about.  I was last a regular blogger in June of 2012.  At the time I was living in Pittsburgh, had just…

Back In Action

A little over two months ago I landed in Washington, DC and was happy to tell you all that I was back in the blogging business after a brief brake.  Turns out, I was full of it.  Life got really exciting down here in DC as the project I’m working…

No Computer!!!

You may not be hearing much from me the next couple weeks.  My laptop is on its way to HP for repairs so the only computers I have access to are my home desktop and the locked down desktop I have at the office.  Since I’m in NYC Monday to…

Keep on Truckin’

Did you know the phrase “Keep on Truckin” dates back to this song, from 1930s and this song?  Well, it’s what I’m doing today.  Some more thoughts on the next Steve Jobs tomorrow.

A Little Winter Maintenance

I spent some time this morning doing a little bit of a spring cleaning on the blog.  Mainly, I reinstated a bunch of the sharing and following options that I had neglected since I moved to the new theme back in October.  You’ll notice over to the right that there…

Sauerkraut Sunday: Savoring Holiday Sauerkraut

I have linked to a lot of great stories on Sauerkraut during this weekly Sunday feature.  What I haven’t done until today is given you a story that you can listen to.  Today though, I’m linking to NPR’s Julie Rose’s story of how her family Cherishes Holiday Sauerkraut and the…

Learning From Others

I don’t often just post other people’s work on this blog.  I mostly use my Twitter feed and Sauerkraut Sundays as a way to pass on other people’s work, but as I went through my news feed last night I couldn’t help but be impressed with two well written, well thought…
