Empty Nest

by RFarrell

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 […]

Trying To Do Good

by Mike Bates "Domestic Engineer"

With all my involvement in youth activities I find myself embroiled in more drama than what happened in my Good, Bad and Ugly post earlier this past fall. Drama seems to want to find me, KRIKEE! This time it’s in my Cub Scout Bear Den and I am not at liberty to discuss the detail […]

A Look Inside

by Charles Wasleski

I seem to keep things to myself. I keep a lot of emotion locked up inside.  I don’t let a lot of people in and when I do, I cling to them so they will not go.  I know I have some emotional problems that I have to deal with daily. I know that there […]

The Good the Bad the Ugly

by Mike Bates "Domestic Engineer"

Organized youth sports is a great thing! Most of it is good but mixed in are the bad and the ugly. The good is pretty self evident and I will not expound on what you already know.  In summary it gets the kids off the couch and computer and gets then active.  It build self […]

Stay-At-Home Dads More Likely to Divorce?

by Al Watts

Time’s Healthland reported last month that stay-at-home dads are more likely to divorce. It is NOT TRUE. What’s even worse is the title they chose for the URL. That is downright shameful.

Garden Tomato Pasta

by David White

Hey, guys!  The tomatoes in my garden are going nuts right now, and my windowsill is getting crowded (Any gardeners out there?).   I’ve been struggling to find something to do with them all.  Last week, I made up this pasta recipe.  It took 20 minutes, tops.  It’s full of flavor, healthy-ish (we use freshly […]

Traveling With Children

by RFarrell

By the time the plane touched down we were all exhausted. The screaming was non-stop, piercing, and maddening. I had a strange calm about the entire ordeal though. It was a “been there, done that,” type of feeling. To add to this young mother’s stress level there was a bit of turbulence on this particular […]

TV and Kids: Against Parent Recommendations

by Charles Wasleski

It has been stated in numerous tests, reports, polls, and surveys that too much T.V. can negatively affect a child’s development. Children under 18 months old should not watch T.V.  But here’s a shelf full of Baby Einstein videos. Children under 3yrs old should only watch only a half hour of T.V. a day.  Then why […]

Education, the Daily Deal?

School starts for us in two weeks,  seems like just yesterday when Dakota and I flew to Wisconsin for his extended holiday away from home and his parents. The school year starts and seems to end earlier and earlier each year, then there are those monthly in-service days at school.  What do you think goes on during […]
