KK- One Big Thank You

I wanted to let everyone know the latest KK Donation Drive was a success.

Donations game from folks on Twitter, KK visitors and of course KK members.

Donations ranged up to $200.

I am sincerely thankful and very moved by the generosity.

Back to work I go.

KK- Kukla’s Korner Is Nothing Without You

Yes, it is time for another KK Donation Drive and the good, no, great news is my hosting  cost is covered for the whole season.

You see, a mini-miracle has occurred over the past few years.  A very generous, caring and anonymous person (not a KK member) has made sure Kukla's Korner continues to keep hockey fans informed on a daily basis.

With that, the ad revenue market continues to shrink.  KK is actually being viewed by more people than last year at this point, but ad revenue is on a downward trend.

So if feel KK is worth it, here are the details.

I prefer payment via PayPal (note account name is Shalen Franchini) and also have a GoFundMe account set up too.  Another payment method I'm using is Zelle, which is a way to send a donation through your bank (thanks to a KK member for the tip).  The email address to use is pk @ kuklaskorner dot com

KK members who have donated in the past will receive at least a year of no ads on KK with a donation of $20.

Others will receive the same benefit with a donation of at least $25.

Any amount helps and every donation is much appreciated.

This is what I do, sometimes up to 16 hours a day.  It is my passion and I will continue it as long as the man above allows it.

This post will remain at the top of KK for the next few day.

Happy Thanksgiving America

Hope you are able to enjoy today the way you want and if spending time with family and friends, enjoy the moments and make them lasting memories.

Me? I am taking this day to take a break and relax at home.

I was invited to my cousin's home, but passed to spend some time doing NOTHING.

See you Friday morning, unless of course news of a can't wait variety pops up.

KK- Going Dark Tonight

Time to relax tonight after the candy is given out.

Only 2 games tonight, 8pm ET and 10pm ET puck drops.

I will post if anything drastic happens, if not, see you in the morning.

KK- Making It Quick, Donation Drive Time

note- original post was on 9/4/19 at 11:33am

I am going to make this as short as possible.

This summer was the slowest I have experienced since I started Kukla's Korner back in July, 2005 (can you believe it, 14 years).

As always, I refuse to post hockey related links like 'top 10 players named Patrick' or 'what NHL would have the best ice in the summer'.  You get the picture.

Slow is not good for KK.  The more visitors to the site, the more ad revenue, but again, I don't force the news.  I let it come to me and decide if members and readers would have interest.

I would have preferred to wait for another KK donation drive until early October, but I don't want to be in panic mode when the season starts.

The last donation drive was in late April and it was successful, although the goal fell short by about $175.

So here goes...

If you wish to donate- I prefer payment via PayPal (note account name is Shalen Franchini) and also have a GoFundMe account set up too.

KK members who have donated in the past will receive at least a year of no adds on KK with a donation of $20.

Others will receive the same benefit with a donation of at least $25.

Thanks as always and this post will remain sticky for at least a few days.

KK- The Labo(u)r Day Weekend

News in the hockey world will probably be slow over the weekend but I expect it to start picking up early next week.

Rookie camps will be opening soon followed by the NHL teams.

I will be around over the next four days but posts may be a little slower than normal.

Hope everyone stays safe and enjoys the last holiday before the season starts.

KK- Time For A Break

My plan for the next 1 1/2 months is to take a few days off here and there.

I have no travel plans, will remain local and if anything big pops up, I will post.

But other than that, down time is needed although my Twitter may remain somewhat active.

I put in a request for a few days off and it was approved it (nice when the only person I report to is me).

I am not sure when I will get back at  it, but safe to say it won't be any longer than 3-4 days of exile.

So KK members feel free to use the comment section of this post to keep on eye out on things if you so desire.

KK- Today Sure Feels Like A Holiday

News is pretty slow and I imagine it will get slower tomorrow and perhaps over a long holiday weekend too.

I am and will be around if any actual news happens, otherwise, I am going to relax.

Hope all of you have a great July 4th and beyond.

Stay safe, enjoy whatever your plans are and be careful if around fireworks.

It Should Be A Slow Day Today

Many of the media types are either traveling or taking it easy, which is my plan for today.

Off-ice news will soon pickup and as always, I will be around to keep you informed.

I will post occasionally today but if something does break, you will see it here quickly but I don't see much happening today except for the party getting started in St. Louis.

Time for some eye rest and a mental refresh too.
