It is what it is.

Hey, Where Did the Summer Go?

I'm not the biggest fan of the summer. I don't like being covered in sweat when I get to work. I don't like being devoured by evil hungry mosquitoes. And I despise flying beetles sneaking into my home getting caught in my ceiling fan's down draft and landing in my sleeping face. I also don't [...]

April 2011 was one of those months that I can look back on and smile. It was filled with love, vindication, and fun. The love part was when I had the opportunity to preside over the nuptials of one of my oldest friends. It was a chilly Sunday morning, Palm Sunday to be exact, when [...]

For some reason Charlie Sheen thinks he is winning. It's one of his catch phrases after all. Sure he's rich and famous but he's also fired, and kind of a jerk. Sadly he's in denial about his seriously deep issues. In my book he's losing. He's losing big. He's a dad and he needs to [...]

My wife has this theory that Dev is spoiled because for the last week he has been noting that he is bored and only kids who have lots of fun all of the time would notice the few moments when they are bored. I must admit that he has said spoiled kid nonsense like [...]

I'll admit it: I haven't been to church in ages. It's been so long that I am pretty sure the last time I was in church only the Old Testament existed! I believe in God and I read the Bible on occasion, but overall I do not do much in organized religion. I have a [...]

Usually around this time of the year I am excited about rolling into the fun of the fall, and the awesomeness of the Holiday Season in NYC. We already purchased Dev's Halloween costume, and we're trying to decide on which orchard we will be picking apples and pumpkins at this year. Fall really is [...]

This past weekend my wife was sick with some kind of 24 hour bug. I was glad to see her resting for a change, but not under the circumstances. I purchased the soup and juice needed to combat any sickness and plowed her with acetaminophen to keep the fever down. I am also a self [...]

I know we are all busy. For some reason people in this country (at least those of us in the Northeast) think that every minute of every day should be filled with stuff. If we have a minute we start to wonder why we didn't book it, then to make sure that it's covered we [...]
