Dark Pursuit of the Paranormal

Let me set the scene for you: You know a sweet, loving girl named Alma who slowly went crazy. As a result, her parents locked her in their basement. She cried and begged to be let out. Passersby and neighbors could hear her shrieks, but dared not intervene for fear of their own safety. One…

Grilled… pizza?

My biggest pet peeve when searching for a recipe online is I have to read an overly lengthy prose piece about how this dish reminds them of their Great Aunt who made this for them in the Winter during their parents’ divorce… or feel free to use your imagination. In any case, I have no…

Man Enough To Be A Girl Scout

“Well behaved women seldom make history.” – Laurel Thatcher Ulrich Anyone who knows me, knows I am missing some punches on my “man card.” For example, I couldn’t care less how much torque your motor has or how to properly secure a load. So it’s only appropriate that I ended up with two daughters. But…

Amgen Tour of California – Stage 6

For me, there is nothing better than putting on some spandex, hopping on my all-too-expensive bike and just getting out in the world. You have to dodge a few cars as you get out of the city but it’s all worth it. There is simply no better escape! It’s just you and your bike on…

Go See The Unbelievables at the Eldorado

The Unbelievables Christmas Extravaganza is an awesome show for adults and kids alike. The show headlines Sara and her dog Hero from America’s Got Talent so it was hard for me not to draw comparisons with other tv shows, movies and broadway shows. The host was a comedic Ryan Seacrest-type with a touch of Joel…

Review: KiwiCo Crate

Do you remember playing outside for hours with nothing more than a stick when you were a kid? As a boy, I could make that stick a sword to battle pirates or a light saber to battle Darth Vader or a “shooter” (as my daughter says) to be a cowboy. But, it seems, part of…

Rules for My Daughters

Aaron Conrad posted a great compilation of quotes from Walker Lamond’s book “Rules for My Unborn Son.” As a father of two daughters, this list didn’t really speak to me, though it was full of great insight. So, I set out to build my own list of rules for my daughters. As I searched and…

Canfest – Reno Dads Night Out

“We have one goal: to give canned beer the spotlight it deserves.” Dads are people, too. And we sometimes need to go out and not be Dad for a few hours to recharge our father batteries. This will ultimately make us better, more patient fathers… in theory. So that’s what four of us Reno Dads┬ádid…

I Envy the Man with a Man Bun

“There’s many a man hath more hair than wit.” -Shakespeare The man bun has quite the bad rap. I say to each his own, and if you can pull it off better than the new Ken doll, then you go girl! Hold on. Don’t get upset at me just yet as I’m an equal opportunist…

Solution to Seasonal Stuffiness

“What if you hate the way he picks his nose? …..And eats it. All men do it.” – Kristoff from Frozen I don’t know about you, but I was anxious for the winter of 2016/2017 to end. Full disclosure: I don’t ski or snowboard, so the over abundance of snow in the Sierras was lost…
