How Do You Get Your Kids to Appreciate Classic Movies?

I’ve had some success and some utter failures over the last few weeks to get my kids to appreciate some classic movies. I love classic movies, but I have had the hardest time getting my own kids interested in watching older films. Sometimes the pacing is just too slow, and other times the subject matter […]

There is Nothing Like a Suit!

I had to break down this weekend and actually go shopping for clothes. Its not something I ever enjoy, but with an upcoming business trip, I needed a couple of suits to wear. Since our office is business casual, I really haven’t needed a suit at all, and can usually get by with just a […]

Football Week 2

Yes! The Lions finally win! They broke their 20 game losing streak and beat the Washington Redskins by a score of 19 – 14. And you know what, they actually looked quite good doing it. They have been steadily improving each week. While I don’t think they will win a bunch of games or make […]

A friend sent me the quotes below today. I don’t usually post these kind of things, but frankly, today, they seem kind of apropos. I also don’t know if they are all “real” quotes or made up. In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two […]

Stanley Cup Time

It’s Stanley Cup time again in the NHL and once again the Detroit Red Wings are playing for Lord Stanley’s Cup. I love watching the NHL finals, especially when the Red Wings are there. I don’t get a chance during the season to watch too many games but I always make it a point to […]

The Girls Win Big At Showstopper

Once again Suzanne and Savannah traveled to Phoenix to attend the Showstopper Dance competition. This year was a little different as they were the only two soloist from the dance studio to attend the competition. The only group that went was the St. Andrew’s/Alma Dolores Folklorico group. Suzanne kicked off the entire competition with her […]

Showstoppers Weekend Again

Well, sort of… It is time for the regional Showstopper dance competition weekend in Phoenix once again. However, Suzanne’s and Savannah’s dance studio has decided to not do Showstopper this year. I am not really sure why, but the studio is passing this year. That doesn’t mean the girls are passing this year – at […]
