..And we all teamed up!

Well, it’s been awhile since I’ve actually sat down to talk a little bit about life, and that’s just because life’s been so crazy it’s been hard to find the time! As I’ve said before, I commend those of you who can post every day or even close to every day. Where do you findContinue reading “..And we all teamed up!”

Celebrating Father’s Day with some favorite on-screen dads

We’ve all seen that cliche image from times past – a father, back relaxed in an easy chair, legs propped up on a footrest. Perhaps he’s wearing a robe, smoking a pipe, and even wearing slippers. Or at the very least maybe the family dog is bringing the slippers or paper to him. I don’tContinue reading “Celebrating Father’s Day with some favorite on-screen dads”

Boxing up comics, unboxing me

Little by little over the past few months, we’ve been clearing out much of our home office, converting it into a hybrid office/nursery with the arrival of our newest addition. Packing books up, taking down wall art not quite suitable for a newborn, and taking the numerous boxes filled with comic books and packing themContinue reading “Boxing up comics, unboxing me”

Trick or treat with comics!!

For the past several years (at least since becoming homeowners), I’ve tried to do something a little different than the standard candy giveaway on Halloween night. I’m by no means the person handing out toothbrushes or bags of pennies that I sometimes encountered when I was a kid, but I do like to break thingsContinue reading “Trick or treat with comics!!”

More tales from the backseat

I can’t help but share the tidbits and conversations that come out of our little guy during our drives in the car. Recently, we were driving along, some classical music playing on the radio, just the smallest amount of heat coming out of the car on a crisp, Fall day, when I heard coughing fromContinue reading “More tales from the backseat”

“Trick or Treat” OR “Put down that snickers bar and pick up this comic”

I’ve always wondered how dentists feel about Halloween. Back when I was anchoring the news, we would occasionally have dentists on-set once a month, and when it came to this time of year they’d often have candy-returns that they would plug, where their offices would collect candy and ship it overseas to people in theContinue reading ““Trick or Treat” OR “Put down that snickers bar and pick up this comic””

“Mining our nostalgia” OR “Disney, what is wrong with you?! Get on the ball!”

Maybe you’ve seen the following video making the rounds on the web this week, as Disney recreated the opening theme song to DuckTales using real ducks. It’s the latest in what I’ve seen as a growing trend by the Big Mouse company in mining the nostalgia of my generation, which grew up in the 1980sContinue reading ““Mining our nostalgia” OR “Disney, what is wrong with you?!

Day in the Life – a photo essay

Whether they know it or not, everyone has a story to tell. However, some folks never tell their stories because they think they have nothing to say – that their life is too boring. It’s with that in mind, that I set out to create a photo essay that took something routine and mundane –Continue reading “Day in the Life – a photo essay”

Happy Memorial Day

I know that these days, many people associate Memorial Day as ‘the unofficial start to summer’ or a ‘long weekend’ to barbecue, travel or get together with family and friends. None of those are inaccurate ways to spend the day. Heck, we took advantage of nice weather and worked on our garden. Just make sureContinue reading “Happy Memorial Day”
