But Doc, I feel fine – Part 1, When the stress goes away

This is part one of (hopefully) a short series with my interactions with the medical profession and my blood pressure. For most of my life, I’ve been quite healthy. My blood pressure (BP) problems didn’t start until after I had kids. More accurately, they started after the twins were born (they’re 12 now) and after…

Thud, Silence, then the Scream

Anyone who has been around small children is likely more than familiar with hearing a Thud. The Thud can occur at any time after a child learns to move on their own. I’m not going to talk about the accidents that can occur when a child rolls over, though. I do want to tell you about…

On Sex Education – and the Single Dad

If you came to this page because you thought I was going to talk about sex, you might want to leave now. It’s not. It’s about the sex education of me and my kids. I was still married to my second wife when my oldest son was young. When it came time for sex education,…
