Welcome to “Disabled Business Owner” on the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast
In this episode, I’m going through the books and wrapping up 2022 for my business when I discover that I’ve totally spaced and forgot to bill for the biggest order of the year. It happened last year, right around when I was about to go into surgery.

Welcome to “Cooking While Disabled 2023” on the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast
In this episode, I find myself doing a lot of cooking while disabled which involves adaptation and interpretation of recipes that generally aren’t written with disabled people in mind. We’ve got to eat, regardless.
There’s an influx of produce at the house because we sized up our weekly vegetable box in the new year.
The kids are home from school which compresses the day, as they come home from camp in the afternoon and from then on it can be pretty difficult to concentrate.
Shout outs to Eric & Traci
Shout outs to the people listening through to the past episodes- I know they are there when the number of episodes streamed increases appreciably while the number of individual listeners doesn’t increase
Port Protection is home to the few who have left behind normal society and chosen a different life in a remote Alaskan community, where survival of the individuals and community cannot sustain without the other. The stakes are high. The land is rugged and unforgiving and the seas which surround Port Protection are cold and merciless.

Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast S6, Ep. 44 “Pot Roast and Polenta”
In this episode, I cook pot roast and polenta. Recently, I’ve been spending a lot of time in the kitchen, laying low and taking care of my self. I’m having some anxiety but I’m trying to work with it. I’m taking a plane trip to SoCal and having a holiday party at my house later this week, so it makes sense that I am a little stressed.
There’s a lot of killer sound effects ion this weeks episode including people booing, laughing and cracking whips among many other cool sound effects like boing boxes and xylophones.
In the Kitchen
last night we had pot roast and polenta. the pot roast braised at a low temp in the oven with the lid cracked
Pot roast guidance came from The Food Lab by J. Kenji Lopez-Alt.
Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast S6, Ep. 43 “Thanksgiving Autopsy”
In this episode, it finally happened. Thanksgiving is over and it went fairly well after all, even though the rotisserie parts never arrived. We adjusted more or less successfully by smoking the turkeys. It took a little longer because of the slower cooking method, but it was tasty, and we had enough appetizers to tide everyone over until the food was ready. Let’s conduct the Thanksgiving Autopsy in order to find out what really happened.

My son was confused about the difference between cannabis and cannibalism. He was terrified when he saw a pot club called Have A Heart
“Frosty’s So Saucy“
FOMO the Snowman is something that I have sung about when I was stressed out, in the run up toThanksgiving for example
Let’s conduct a Thanksgiving Autopsy
Thanksgiving is happening, in fact it happened. We made a lot of stuff.
We smoked the Turkey because we didn’t get parts in time, and it took quite a while, because smoking is a slow method of cooking. It tasted okay but it wasn’t quite what I was going for. Next year, I want to get the bird on thte table around 1 P.M.
Welcome to What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast S6, Ep. 42 “Thanksgiving Warmup”
In this episode, I’m getting ready for Thanksgiving, roasting chickens, buying barbecue parts, checking out tactical wallets, and more. I went to my friend’s birthday party and I managed to hang around and put in a pretty decent appearance. Disabled culture this week: Alice Wong, Leon Fleischer, and Daniel Romanchuk.
Kayaking through the wastewater outside the tomb of salt Bae
Had a buddy over and we had Mississippi roast and watched the World Series game six between the Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros
We went to a friend’s house for a birthday party.
It was outside and it was on some dirt that had been rained on, so it was soft. It was not as easy to stand to stand on as concrete.
I didn’t use my wheelchair And I did pretty good
I saw the guy who owned a bar and we discussed what I’ve been drinking
the last time I saw him I was in a wheelchair and this time I was standing using my cane
I archived my trigeminal neuralgia journal – i’m off meds
I was visiting with the birthday ladies family And they gave me a slice of cake and a fork and a little paper plate and I tried to eat it on my lap and I kept throwing pieces on the ground on accident so I just gave up it was a pretty good cake and remarkably it was in the shape of an armadillo

Welcome to “Turkey Order” on the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast
In this episode, I put in the turkey order at the butcher shop. This year, we’re having Thanksgiving at the house again, and we’re planning to cook the turkey on the rotisserie. I ordered two smaller birds instead of one big one, and I’m hoping it’ll be more manageable that way. Also in this episode, we went to a Halloween party where my wife made me up like a beautiful woman, but not the one I was expecting. Meanwhile, Christina Applegate was diagnosed with MS, and we read about it in the newspaper.

Welcome to “Disabled Americans Are Going Back To Work” on the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast
There are plenty of sound effects in this week’s episode, like a xylophone and a noise like, “Fweet!” that we hear while reading through “For Disabled Workers, a Tight Labor Market Opens New Doors” by Ben Casselman in the New York Times to find that changes ushered in by working remotely during the pandemic might have positive effects for the disabled workforce, and these changes could be long-lasting. Also this week, I continue to build stamina and regain my independence, taking some trips with the kids all by myself for the first time since July. *sound effect*

I Contain Multitudes
Song of Myself, 51
Walt Whitman - 1819-1892
The past and present wilt—I have fill'd them, emptied them.
And proceed to fill my next fold of the future.
Listener up there! what have you to confide to me?
Look in my face while I snuff the sidle of evening,
(Talk honestly, no one else hears you, and I stay only a minute longer.)
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
I concentrate toward them that are nigh, I wait on the door-slab.
Who has done his day's work? who will soonest be through with his supper?
Who wishes to walk with me?
Will you speak before I am gone? will you prove already too late?
My son is being picked on at school- I have Rise on hold
