Star Warsisms From My Daughters

My daughters love Star Wars. As much as I want to take credit for it, I cannot. I have to thank author Jeffrey Brown and Chronicle Books. A few months back when I interviewed Jeffrey for our My Life of Dad segment, Chronicle Books was kind enough to send me Brown's books, "Darth Vader and […]

To cut or not to cut; that is the question

As I’m sitting at the barber shop on Saturday morning, I begin to wonder.  When do I bring Master Stephens in for his very first haircut? As for where do I take him?  Well, that is a no-brainer.  I began going to my barber back in Y2K.  Yes, I went there!  Do we remember that […]

Skateboard Lesson

Accomplishing a goal takes bravery.  Sometimes it takes just a little, sometimes it takes all way can muster.  Not every goal is equal, for example… my goal to lose 30 lbs is probably a little more important (and valuable) than my goal to win the Superbowl as ‘Da Bears on Madden ’10.  Each goal we […]

Through The Looking Glass

  The light filters in through the window of the car door; that sort of flashy brilliance from a summer afternoon as signposts and roadside reflectors whiz past on your way from point A to point B. Your headphones are on because your brother whom you are trying to drown out, just retracted that finger […]

One Day At A Time

Learning has always been enjoyable for me. I like understanding why things are the way they are, although, to be honest, I’ve always been more drawn to the theoretical arguments as opposed to the practical ones. For instance, I don’t care very much about the ways that the hydraulics and various mechanical parts of an […]

Sharing The Love For Star Wars

When I was boy and I wasn't feeling good my mother would always let me watch my favorite movie. It was and still is "The Empire Strikes Back." I loved all three films from the trilogy, but there was just something about Empire that struck a chord with me. Loved seeing Yoda. I thought Hoth […]

Tune Dad- New Music, Old Music, Good Music #4- Takénobu

Each week I will highlight music that I think is fantastic. What are my qualifications? It’s pretty simple. I probably listen to way more music of all kinds than you do.
