NITZAKHON, Author at Granite Grok - Page 6 of 7


Nitzakhon is a capital-C political conservative & both a nationalist and culturalist who often jokes that he's not a Republican because they're too liberal.

Why I Want to Catch COVID

So this last weekend I was sniffing, sneezing, coughing up my lungs, and even had a mild fever.  Not typically a day napper, I took not one but two naps on Saturday.  I couldn’t focus (unusual for me even with a cold) and more or less autopiloted my way through the weekend.

Masks & Vaccines Macht Frei

Masks & Vaccines Macht Frei

I was in one of my favorite local area bakeries, family-owned. A classic small business which, preferentially, I support even if more expensive than the same product at a chain store. They have been following the mandatory mask ordinance of Nashua (which is in the process of being dropped).


A Few Thoughts About the Last GrokMeet!

I ventured into the wilds and attended the Rochester Granite Grok meet-up.  Good time.  I was especially gratified at Skip & Steve specifically mentioning me, and doubly so for actually getting what I’d call a significant amount of applause at that mention.  So, wait, people actually read my stuff?  Kewl!
