Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow             Fleetwood Mac was in town a couple of weeks ago. Did you go? Because Chuck and I did. And we had a wonderful evening. I mean, who wouldn’t love getting in touch with their inner-1976ish self while watching Stevie and Mick do their thing?   And so it...

My Daughter Got ‘Manti Teo’d’

My Daughter Got  ‘Manti  Teo’d’

While watching Katie Couric’s interview of Manti Te’o last Thursday,  I got deja vu,  goosebumps, and extremely irritated.  And after it was over, I took ownership of my acute stupidity. When my daughter was a freshman in high school, she had a fun, intriguing, ‘first-love’ relationship with a guy (I think) who lived a privileged...

Keeping the Romance Alive with “Date Night”

For date night on Saturday, me and my old man went to Bed Bath & Beyond. Got new sheets and finally, FINALLY, a Keurig coffee machine.

Arlo explains how to please a baby at bedtime

Arlo explains how to please a baby at bedtime

Hey, mom. Arlo here. I feel I’ve been pretty clear on this topic, but there appears to be some confusion still, which I can only assume is a result of a profound slow-mindedness on your part, which is cool, I guess. Little disappointing that my genes were plucked from your pool, but hey. Water...
