Star Warsisms From My Daughters
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

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 […]
