Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters

I just finished reading the book “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters“, and had to share it with more people. I’ve gathered a bunch of men raising daughters to group blog through the book chapter by chapter here in two weeks.

Faith and Battlestar Galactica

i am not a television watcher, but i just watched all four seasons of battlestar galactica over a span of two months earlier this year, and I’ve got to say the series rocked. There’s so much in there, I wish I blogged about it throughout each season. I don’t want to give away too much […]

U2 – One

City of the Blind

Continuing the series of posts on U2 songs, “City of Blinding Lights” is also a favorite.  It’s musically reminiscent of “Where the streets have no name” with a brilliant intro. I think I heard Barack Obama use it as his entrance music a number of times during the campaign. As with many u2 songs there […]
