I have been looking forward to this weekend for years because today is opening day for the A-Team movie!  The tv series went off the air in 1987, so I have had to wait more than 2 decades to see a new adventure with my favorite characters. I refuse to read any reviews for the film.  Not so much t...
It starts as a not-so-faint song in the distance, the mechanical notes endlessly repeating some asinine tune through a mobile, blaring speaker... As the first strains reach my home, my children react as if they have been injected with an industrial stimulant.  They sit erect, their eyes widen, th...
Yesterday I was washing my hands at home and happened to glance at the back of the liquid soap bottle when I set it on the sink.  The bottle actually had printed instructions on the label!  They said:  "DIRECTIONS: Pump desired amount of product into hands.  Work into a refreshing lather then rin...
Yesterday I had the pleasure (or misfortune, depending on your viewpoint) of accompanying my daughter and her 4th-grade class on a trip to the state capital.  We visited the capital building and a museum of the state's history.  What an interesting day!  And not just from an educational standpoin...
Yesterday my wife set out some catfish fillets to thaw on the counter, leading me to look forward to a nice meal after work.  However, by the time I got home, my poor spouse had experienced a stressful day between clients, the kids, the dog barking too much... She needed a break.  So, I was infor...
At dinner the other night, my older daughter was talking about class trips at her elementary school (She's visiting the state capital next week).  My wife and I chipped in with memories of class trips from our student days. The one that stood out to me was a trip to the Milwaukee Zoo when I was i...
Yesterday on the way home from work I was listening to NPR (National Public Radio).  In the "All Things Considered" segment, there was an interview with the actor, Robert Duvall, who was talking about his career and current plans.  It was an entertaining piece, but one quote stood out in particul...
My Memorial Day weekend wasn't very relaxing- In some respects I'm glad to be back at the office!  My wife and I cleaned, straightened, gardened... and I moved 8 yards of dirt with a shovel and a wheelbarrow.  At one point, I gave my sore and sunburned body a break, and sat down inside with my pu...
Well, I bought a new pair of running shoes, and yesterday I officially launched my new exercise routine by going for my first jog of the year.  Wow, am I out of shape!  I think I cramped up within a couple blocks and, just going around my neighborhood, I had to alternate walking and running so I ...
All winter long, I kept thinking (and even occasionally announcing) that I would start a new exercise regimen once spring rolled around and the weather got nicer.  I decided my main approach would be to run.  I would also work in biking and roller-blading on off-days to give my knees a break and ...
