My wife and I took the kids to one of those big-box member-only warehouse-type grocery places over the weekend.  We save a lot by buying certain items in bulk, and (usually) we enjoy going on Saturdays because there are free sample stations set up throughout the store, allowing us to snack while ...

My family went to see Tim Burton's new Alice in Wonderland today.  It was a rainy Saturday, making it a perfect afternoon to catch a movie.  I liked the film a lot.  We saw it in Imax 3D- in addition to the colorful characters and eye-popping effects, I thought it had a great message. It's not gi...

I've been reading a lot lately about personality types.  I find it to be a very interesting topic, both personally and professionally.  It's been enlightening for me to discover that, based on temperament, we all have natural inclinations to like specific activities and- perhaps even more importa...

In our neighborhood it's definitely obvious that spring is almost here: the days are warmer, the birds are appearing in greater numbers, and (my wife has let me know) it's time to really give the house a good clean-up.  Yes, my household definitely participates in the annual tradition of the "Spr...

Last night my wife (an attorney), held a fundraiser at our home for a friend of hers who is running for a local judge position.  We had a nice turnout, everyone enjoyed the food, and the candidate gave a nice speech.  I liked his slogan, too: "A blue-collar judge for a blue-collar city." I spoke ...

I was walking my puggle the other night when a police K-9 cruiser drove by with a German Shepherd in the back.  The officer driving the car waved at me, and the German Shepherd barked furiously at my dog.  I had to laugh.  I pictured the police dog telling my dog in "dog language" to "Obey the la...

My wife and I watched the Oscars awards show last night.  Normally I just wait until the next day to read about who won, but I had actually seen a bunch of the movies that were nominated this time around, so I gave it a go. I'm glad I did.  It was nice to see a woman win the best director Oscar f...

Lately I have been perusing a book called Please Understand Me by David Keirsey and Marilyn Bates, which, as the cover describes, is about "character and temperament types."  Specifically, it uses a personality questionnaire to sort people into one of sixteen categories based on extraversion (E) ...

I know it's not healthy eating, necessarily, but one of the reasons I look forward to this time of year is McDonald's Double Filet O' Fish.  It's a guilty pleasure and probably an acquired taste for many... but I'm not much of a red meat eater, and when you have kids, invariably you're going to e...

The National Football League (NFL) draft isn't until next month, but it's already a well-discussed topic in sports news.  I love football, so I often listen to talk radio in the car and read a lot of online articles in my spare time.  Much of the discussion isn't just about this year's prospects-...
