Last night my wife and I ate at a local Mexican restaurant.  We like it because it's close to the house and the food is good for the money.  Our waiter greeted us in native Spanish, and throughout our meal he indulgently let us talk back in our poor Spanish.  He was very good-natured about it, as...

Ah, my puggle.  I have a love/hate reltionship with my dog.  He makes me laugh because of his facial expressions- He has a wrinkled forehead, buggy eyes and an underbite that make him appear ridiculous (but cute) at all times.  He is also a real character.  When he gets in trouble he will run and...

Yesterday afternoon we went to my in-laws to celebrate Easter.  My daughters are a bit too old for the Easter Bunny, but my wife's nephew is 4 years old.  So, we celebrated in style, including a tradition of my father-in-law's that I think is pure genius. Instead of an Easter egg hunt, my dad-in-...

Today is Good Friday, and if you celebrate Easter, today has special significance.  Setting aside religion for a moment, though, I just like the name of the holiday.  All Fridays are good because they start the weekend, right?  But today is good with a capital "G."  In a way, that makes it the "b...

What makes it an especially remarkable accom...

My youngest daughter is turning 8, and for her birthday she was allowed to get her ears pierced- a very big deal to a 2nd-grader.  It's a rite of passage for girls, one of the many steps one takes to give the outward appearance of "growing up."  I think that's what makes a first pair of earrings ...

My oldest daughter recently had a "tiger unit" in her social studies class, which spurred me to start reading a book about man-eating predators that I had picked up at the dollar store.  There are a lot of reasons why large predatory animals such as tigers are endangered, one of the chief of whic...

Two events occurred recently which gave me a new appreciation for access to tools and information, and the importance of having a back-up plan.  The first was an internet connection upgrade at work.  The second was the moving of my living room couch away from the window. We switched internet serv...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  My mother's family is from Ireland, so I am always eager to celebrate March 17th.  I wear green, listen to my Wolfetones CD in the car and usually have a Guinness with dinner.  Growing up, my mom told me it was "bad luck" not to wear green on St. Patrick's Day.  And inde...

March Madness begins this week.  I'm not talking about the folks who will spend the 17th drinking green beer- I'm referring to college basketball!  The annual NCAA men's basketball tournament starts this Thursday. Odds are, if you have at least two people at your job, there will be a pool going. ...
