Wouldn’t it be nice to have the spot your child typically sleeps with you everywhere you go? Whether your family does the family bed, child bed in same room, or sleeping quarters in a separate space, our kids seem to sleep better in familiar surroundings. But yet we like...Read More
If you told me that a high chair could be high tech, I would tell you that you were out of your mind. After all, they are just tall chairs with a tray on them, and they are made of plastic, right? I clearly had no idea what was ahead of me! You have probably gotten the picture...Read More

Gear, gadgets, and relevant gab for dads and their families.
I got the opportunity recently to listen to one of the fastest growing entrepreneurs from Texas that you’ve probably never heard of: Win Brown. He spoke of warriors. He spoke of winning. He spoke of overcoming. He spoke of the battle. So the question is: How will history view and regard the warriors? In two ways: 1. The Warrior’s Success in Victory 2. The Weight of the Obstacle that the Warrior has Overcome So what kind of warrior am I? What kind of warrior are you? The Warrior is drawn to the fight. The Warrior chases the battle. The Warrior is driven by the opportunity to win....Read More
Freedom. It’s what the 4th of July is supposed to be all about. It’s about remembering a time when we were once under oppression of foreign rule that cared more about themselves than us. It’s about remembering that we no longer wanted to be under this control, and how the foreign rule didn’t want to let go. It’s about remembering the battles that were fought to buy our sovereignty from oppression. It’s about remembering all of those men and women of all ages, races, and backgrounds who came together to give their lives for a cause that was much, much...Read More
Okay, so this is not a special operations-, or SEAL-, or CIA-specific article, nor does it apply to current events, political intrigue, or international affairs. It has nothing to do with terrorism, or the rise of China, or the re-emergence of Russia. This article is about how to mold a boy into a man. Whether you currently have a son, or might have one in the future, you have an awesome responsibility ahead of you. You have to raise a responsible, contributing, successful member of society. You have to teach a boy how to take care of himself and his family, to be a husband and a father....Read More
Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.Samuel Johnson Take a look around you. Consider everybody that’s ever done anything great that you’ve ever met. How does come to be? Maybe there’s the one in a million that got where they are because of their looks or because of an opportunity that was created for them by their parents or grandparents. There may even be people who have gotten where they are almost entirely by the “luck of the draw” of being at the right place at the right time. However, aside from these rare anomalies of people who...Read More
I think right now the way society’s going, I think role models are important, and kids need direction. Jeremy Lin What we need is more people who stand for what’s right. More people who do what’s right. People with unwavering, uncompromising positions who have a standard of truth. People who are not wishy-washy, ungrounded, and confused. People who have a code of ethics. I need to be this person. You need to be this person. For your self. For your family. For your friends. For your business. For your colleagues and classmates. For society. What will it take for us to stand...Read More
You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous. Tony Hawk Good point, Tony. But my question is: what does it mean to “make it to the top”? Can someone “make it to the top” without being in the top one-tenth-of-a-percent of people doing what that person is doing? What about the single mom or single dad? What about the small-town-USA mom-and-pop store or restaurant? Maybe the difference is that “the top” is not really so high and lofty. Maybe “the top” is actually...Read More
