A lesson on 'Maxist Theory'
I have three children, all of them very unique. I have never mentioned any of their names. In fact, I have received considerable criticism for always calling my daughter "the girl." Today, that all goes away. Like unmasking a superhero, the secret is out. Asked if it was OK if I...

Thinking back, old school
Something dawned upon me the other day while I was watching my old high school being torn down. I was flooded with memories, all of them good. In the end, I don't know if all the memories in that old building were completely dependent on the building. The memories I had were of one...

New Year's resolutions are silly
The New Year is a fresh start, clean slate, and all that other stuff. It fills the heart and mind with all the things that can be. Inspiring, in a word. I go out of my way to make New Year's resolutions each year and for what I consider good reasons. Stop, I can't stand it. It is...

Oddballs who captured our attention
Famous people do stupid things every day. We all do stupid things every day. It only seems like celebrities are further from the food chain of reality because reporters follow them. However, every once and a while seemingly normal people scrape off the boring and do something wild...

A near-perfect hunt for the Phillips
The duck hunters went deer hunting and the season was a wild success. My oldest was successful in his very first hunt. I had the opportunity to spend a little quality time in the stand with the girl as well as her younger, not little, brother. There was a great adventure. And the...

Deja vu and the eventual revelation
It is funny how life comes full circle -- sometimes when you least expect it. A mystic would say that all the stars were aligned in your favor. They may even go as far as to imply kismet. Quantum physics states that it is possible for all things to reoccur, no matter how unlikely....

An ode to 'the girl' from daddy
I've had a lot of time with the kids lately. I think that is fantastic. Sometime I wonder if the three of them feel the same. Sometimes the things that I think are cool, or fun or educational are simply not on their radar. In fact, it seems some of the time that the only machine is...

What makes one funny?
The other day I had a big smile thinking about a couple of funny people and what makes them funny. One is skilled, one not. However, they may be the two funniest people I know. Oddly, they are two of the most open, caring and best listeners I know. Their differences are huge but humor...

Exposing kids to the story of veterans
My kids are pretty good sports about my idealistic, adventurous spirit. They are constantly being exposed to the local culture. This may be through a smattering of meetings, causes or history adventures. Some of this is to expose them to something they may not otherwise experience....
