I’m going to tell you guys a secret, my son is a huge My Little Pony fan and I don’t care one iota. Actually if I’m really honest I think it’s pretty rad that he’s into this show. I’m not really sure when his obsession with My Little Pony started. I think it was when I… Read More »

For approximately the last decade of my life all of my home computing has been done on a Mac. I bought my first Mac laptop when I was in my third year of college, sometime around 2003/2004 and I never really looked back.

I would like to go on the record as saying, I love my son but he is making me insane. Nathan turned four this past April and it seems like almost immediately he became a bit of a monster. Nate has always been a little bit challenging but it’s never been anything like four. Four… Read More »
