Bedtime

The room is dark. The lamps on the street below cast vague shadows onto the walls of the room. The windows from the building across the street reflect the alternating red, yellow and green from the traffic light at the corner, while the white security light shines brightly on the sidewalk. The bushes in front […]

Super Bowl XLIX: Matchups Give Patriots Slight Edge

We're past the "nonsense" phase of Super Bowl XLIX week. The game itself finally is beginning to feel like less of an abstract concept and more concrete. For many of us, that means it's time to start thinking about … you know, football. The game is, after all, about the matchups and motivation. To that […]

Who Wears The Pants In Our House?

Dadvice: What will you do differently tomorrow?

I "made" my kids sit down and watch the State of the Union address with me.  I think I have watched every one of them since at least 1999 and A few of them before that, all the way back to Ronald Reagan.  I think it is a great way for them to see how […]

Tune Dad — New Music, Old Music, Good Music — #10, Sturgill Simpson

For a long time I would say that I liked all music.... except country. But then I would follow that up with an ever-growing list of country acts that I did like. One day I realized that I actually do like country. It's just not every variation of it that I enjoy. I can say […]

Not that the issue is going to go away. You think we've been overwhelmed with coverage of the under-inflated footballs the Tom […]
