Snow Day

As you probably know (or experienced first hand), New York has received a bit of snow in the last few weeks. The Manhattan public school kids have been left out of the Snow Day party until yesterday.

Real Life Through Your Phone

If you’re like me, you’ve got a phone that has a camera, be it iPhone, Blackberry, Android or whatever.  This is the device you have with you at all times and probably what you’re using to capture all the real and spontaneous moments of your life.

A Male!, about how our society may have gone off the deep end about “suspicious men” lurking behind every corner.  I think every dad, uncle or grandpa has thought or worried about the issue while at the park with their loved ones.  I am all for protecting our kids from predators but also hope we can keep perspective so we don’t keep them from good experiences (like a pickup football game in the park), or worse yet, put them in more danger (not helping a child in need for fear of misunderstood intentions).
