Final firepit with pea pebbles close up small

Tweet This summer we had a major drought.  It was so bad the town of Fishers, where I live, instituted a burn ban.  The grass in my yard was decimated by the dryness, so I took action on a project my wife and I had talked about for a long time. So what did...

From Hipster to Dipster

Tweet Sometimes I pick a show to watch at IndyFringe purely based on the time and location that it is playing.  I don’t live downtown, even though it is one of my never-to-be-fulfilled dreams, so I’m usually stuck picking from seven shows that are playing at a set time on a specific day.  As...

Born to be Wild at IndyFringe

Tweet IndyFringe is back for its 8th season.  It’s a great event for Indianapolis and the Mass Ave. corridor and one of many examples of how progressive this city is as it continues to develop its credibility as a place for the arts and cultural events.  Yes, Indianapolis is not just a sports town....

Tweet But there is such a thing as semantics.  Words mean things.  But we try and attribute new meaning to words so they don’t sound so bad, or we try and frame them in a more positive manner.  The word failure is one of these words. I just wrote a post about allowing ourselves...

Failure is the Only Option

Tweet Our schools have forgotten to teach kids how to fail. They are too busy scaring our kids into getting A’s and keeping a 4.0 GPA that our kids aren’t willing to meet failure face to face. I was a mediocre student in elementary school.  In junior high I figured out the system and...

Tweet At least one time everyday, I hear that question.  “What time is it?”  In the past, I would generally look at my watch or the clock on the microwave and call out the answer.  Seems pretty logical right? Lately though, whenever that question is asked, my four year old will holler, “Adventure Time!”...

Pimping Sports for Blog Traffic

Tweet I wanted more traffic to my site, so I wrote this post about sports.  That’s what it takes.  Nobody really cares about my musings on pickles or art, but I drop the name Peyton Manning or something sports related and people start clicking.  I’m pretty sure anything NFL related get the highest traffic....

Did You See It?

Tweet Did you see it?  Tell me. Did you? Yeah, neither did I. But unlike other years, I actually did want to.  I truly thought about.   I thought about carving out a few hours to dabble in the Hollywood glitz and glamor of The Golden Globes.  I thought about dressing up in a tux...

20 Seconds of Courage

Tweet I took my daughter to see We Bought a Zoo the other night.  My wife and son had seen it the week before and really liked it, so on their recommendation we ventured out to the movies. As a film, it was good.  Not great, but very good.  I found myself teary-eyed a...
