I grew up in a house full of brothers. There were black eyes and broken windows, a garage overflowing with every sports related implement and a fridge that had to be stocked constantly as our bodies grew and our appetites remained ravenous. When I became a father for the first time I was somewhat relieved […]
Much to my mother’s chagrin, I owe a great deal of my sarcastic sense of humor to my childhood overindulgence in the usual gang of idiots at Mad Magazine.

I was going to post about our recent Snowboarding experience but local events dictate my change of thinking so […]
Are men supposed to have the empty-nest syndrome? I’m starting to think that we are. The first day of my boys going back to school, I was fairly well put together, until I got home. My wife was gone at work, my step-son was nowhere to be found, and I was all alone in the […]
