Just like that, another school year has come and gone. Not just any, mind you. Today marks the last day of Pre-K for Talia. She leaves her final year of preschool bigger and wiser, with better writing skills, infinitely larger vocabulary and sass to spare (hence the non smile in this pic). She’ll always be… Read More Growin’ Up
We enrolled our daughters in a quickie one-week dance camp once we returned from a three-week summer vacation. Because we’re awesome parents who want to make sure they are learning and being challenged as often as possible. Also, we needed a break. The last day, all the campers put on a show featuring various numbers… Read More The Cutest Air Guitar Video Ever
The family is putting a ribbon on a rapid & righteous trip to London, the first time my girls Alexia & Talia, have gone across the pond. While the prospect of boarding a plane with them for 8+ hours is now more terrifying than The Exorcist ever was, I’m still calling this an unqualified win for… Read More Life Lesson: Live your life, eyes wide open
It’s really not that hard to pick out a decent Father’s Day gift. All it takes is a little bit of time and awareness — know what the Dad you’re shopping for enjoys and tailor a gift to those tastes. I always enjoy curating gift lists for Father’s Day to help people think a little… Read More Father’s Day gifts that dad will actually like!
Brutal pun, I know, but if your optimism for Spidey’s next solo outing isn’t skyscraper high after watching the just-released new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, then we can’t be friends anymore.

So what? The reaction of the InterWebs to the new details revealed about the Han Solo prequel film was predictable. Once Disney chief Bob Iger revealed a few salient points about the 2018 Star Wars Story, fans went to work dissecting what it meant, how it fits in to the SW canon, and of course, slamming… Read More Han Solo’s real name isn’t actually Han Solo
I’m more of a blackjack and sports book kind of gambler, but there is no way I’m NOT throwing some change into a Batman ’66 TV series slot machine. I spotted this one at the Aria Casino but I’m sure it’s at other places as well.
There’s a certain …stigma it seems, to actually decide to stay home with the family when there’s a break in the school calendar. Which is kind of ridiculous, when you think about it. I don’t remember taking a vacation during every long weekend or holiday break when I was a kid. Of course, I also… Read More Spring Breakin’ like a Boss … at home
I have a bad habit of spending absurd amounts of money I shouldn’t spend on totally unnecessary stuff. Stuff like old Mego action figures, collectible statues, and especially, original comic art. Which is how I wound up with an FDNY helmet with a hand-drawn THOR image by comics legend Walt Simonson. Yes, an actual helmet… Read More Psst…Wanna See a hand drawn THOR FDNY helmet?

The 30-acre water park is offering a raft full of rides aimed at kids and grownups of varying ages, sizes and levels of courage.
