    Fetch me a rocking chair sonny, I'm old

    My 12 year old daughter just came home from middle school chorus practice. She said, "We're singing 'Home Sweet Home' in chorus." When I queried her on the song, she gave me some of the lyrics. I started singing it and saw recognition on her face and she said, "Yes, that's it!" So, move...

    Always get a sick kid for Christmas

    Last year this time, we had the Late night drama (with puke inside) incidents. Today, the same kid (now 12) woke me up with the thermometer in her hand, showing me it was 100.7. Fever. No school. I took it again later in the morning and it spiked to 102. She's had motrin and the fever...

    Remember the catapult?

I got my Christmas tree last night, but I cannot put my trains up yet because the locomotive is "in use" for this physics project. It has been turned into a deadly weapon for the purposes of popping a balloon that holds back...

    My wife is in absolute heaven right now

    SyFy has been doing a marathon of disaster movies, all with a winter/snow theme. She loves this crap. The more of a "B" movie, the better. Right now, we're watching "Snowmageddon" and she's counting down the next hour until "The 12 Disasters of Christmas" starts. :rofl1:

    Ah, physics class, how I love thee

    Beware - do NOT look directly into the brindle

    It has powers you know not. I have a light day today and am working from home. I had to run an errand and brought Xena and my youngest daughter with me. Xena needed a pit stop, so we stopped by the local park with a dog trail (bag stations like every 100 yards). The park has a...

    I will not join the K-Cult

    My brother and a bunch of my friends all have these Keurig coffee makers. Even my parents have one. They are constantly telling me how awesome they are. Personally, I'm happy with our Cuisinart drip coffee maker and plain old Master Blend. Nothing fancy. I keep telling them that I refuse to...
