My youngest daughter's birthday is toward the end of this month.  When asked, she says she would like Webkinz and Nancy Drew books.  She already has an American Girl doll.  American Girls are rather expensive dolls that stand about 2 feet tall, for which you can purchase rather expensive clothes ...

At the end of January, I shared some of my favorite "work" books, and I thought I would offer a few more suggestions today.  All of them are available for purchase from various online sites.  These are presented in no particular order of importance: 1) The Mafia Manager by V.: You don't have to b...

I love my puggle.  He is a constant source of discussion and amusement in our home.  When he's good, he's very sweet, loving and calm.  When he's bad... well, he's lucky he hasn't been sentenced to life imprisonment in his bed!  While he's good, we say he's a puggle, and while he's bad, we say he...

Oh no... I suppose it had to happen sooner or later, but this morning my oldest daughter uttered her first "Whatever!" in response to a parental directive (in this case, being polite about sharing use of the toaster with her sister).  For kicks, I looked up "whatever" on the dictionary.com websit...

This morning before I came into the office, I took my oldest daughter to school for a special conference with her teacher.  The meeting was to discuss my daughter's recurring problem with getting her homework turned in on time and what we could do, collectively, to help remedy the situation. On t...

My poor wife has been sick the last couple days.  She is an attorney with her own office, so when she's run down, her business shuts down.  I know she's frustrated, and I feel bad for her.  Also, I had to make dinner last night, and the kids would definitely prefer her cooking to mine (although t...

The health insurance debate is certainly a hot topic, whether in the news or around the office water cooler.  Personally, I have mixed feelings about many of the issues surrounding health care reform.  Bottom line, I suppose, is that I would like to fix the parts of the current system that are br...

I was visiting with my mom, who is 64.  She was very excited because she had just purchased a Palm Pre, which is a fancy new "smart phone" that allows the user to surf the web, watch videos and run multiple applications (in addition to actually making calls).  I asked her what had prompted this e...

My oldest daughter checked out a book for me to read from her school library called "The City of Ember."  She thought I would like it because it's in the science fiction genre, which she knows I enjoy.  I did like the book- my wife even read it, too, and so next we ordered the film version from N...

Last night my wife and I took the kids out to dinner with my parents at a "fancy" restaurant for my mother's birthday.  Despite repeated, consistent efforts to instill the importance of politeness into my two elementary-school-age daughters, it's something of a crapshoot when you get them in an a...
