Kukla's Korner Hockey
It has been quite the last 30 hours or so for me.
Long story short-
Yesterday morning while sitting at the computer I felt a short but painful shot to both sides of my jaw.
It went away quickly and I brushed it off as so...
But a few hours later, I felt like fainting a couple of times then decided to head to the local emergency room.
Now back home but did undergo a procedure which cleaned out a 75% blocked artery to my heart.
I do need some rest but will do a few posts before I call it a night. Hopefully things will be back to or close to normal tomorrow.
All in all, I feel lucky I went to the hospital when I did.
Time for another push for the KK Donation Drive.
At this point we are at 53% of a very lofty goal of $10K. To all of the 132 persons who have made a donation, I can't thank you enough.
I am planning a complete rebuid of KK over the summer and funds donated will allow me to achieve that goal.
If you can spare any donation amount, it will be greatly appreciated and will be put to good use.
Here is the original post kicking off the GoFundMe drive along with numerous comments made by KK members.
Also, do remember if you donate $25 or more, I will remove the majority of ads for you over the next year. Also, if you have donated in the past, $20 will get the ads removed for you too.
We are going to do a quick server upgrade starting at 1:00pm ET today and KK wll be down for about 15 minutes at that time.
You may also see sporadic outages for 2-3 hours after the upgrade.
Unfortunately, KK is getting old software wise and the software is putting a strain on the server. This upgrade may help or may not but I am willing to take that chance.
Donations continue to come in but at a slower pace, so if you can help it is much appreciated. One way or another, KK will be going through a major build over the summer which will put us in a great position moving forward.
We are having some posting issues this morning which permits regular posting at the moment.
Working on it and hopefully KK will back in the swing of things soon.
Wishing all peace, good health and good times with family and friends.
With 5 NHL games tonight, 13 on Saturday and another 5 on Sunday, I am not going anywhere.
Yes a small break would be nice but it can wait until the regular season ends next Saturday night.
In the meantime, stay tuned, it is about to get hectic.
With donations today, the KK GoFundMe Donation Drive went over $4000 in donations.
Words cannot express my feelings at this point and all I can really say is thank you so much.
Remember, any dollar amount is welcome and you can say you were part of making KK a better place.
I am happy to announce the KK Donation Drive at GoFundMe has reached 30% of the 10K goal.
Every donation will go right back into KK to help make some much needed improvements.
As I have said before, this is my only job and I put in over 80 hours a week doing this and will continue to do so for the years ahead.
Again, thanks to all of you who have donated and also to those who plan to do so in the future.
Thanks to all the 53 people who have pushed the KK GoFundMe Donation Drive to over $2000.
Any amount helps drive the total up and I am very moved by the donations received at this point in time.
As I have said, the $10K goal is very lofty but I truly believe in can be reached over time.
Thanks again to all.
