Requirement 11 (Cub Scouts Duty To God)

Recently I had to explain to my 7 year old son the consequences that being an atheist might have on his being a cub scout.

You see the scouts are inherently discriminatory against atheists. The cub scout promise starts "I promise to do my duty to god..." so if you don't believe in god, how can you possibly keep your scout promise?

My Kids Eat Ridiculously Healthy

Despite the photo, it's true, my kids eat ridiculously healthy, at least over all.

When Eason was born we decided we just wouldn't give him any sweets. While his friends were eating cake at birthday parties, we would just slip a bowl of fruit in front of him and he never noticed.

Eric & Marc Settle Things Once And For All In Costa Rica

My Uncle Marc has long maintained that he beat me in a swimming contest back in the day. Apparently he's been bragging to everyone about it all this time. Well if you know Marc, then you know his memory isn't all that great. So...Marc & I settled things once and for all in the pools of El Country - the Costa Rica Country Club.

Why You Need Facebook Lists

Recently I was corresponding with a friend who, like me, uses a facebook fan page to promote his website. While discussing his strategy it became apparent why you really need to use facebook Lists to organize your friends, whether you have a fan page or not.

While you could let your fans accumulate through their own volition, you can accumulate fans much faster if you Friend prospective fans and then invite them. But having many friends has its drawbacks, even for those whose Friends are legitimate, which is not necessarily the case when you’re using facebook as a promotional tool.

Corporate Challenge

I took part in the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge and now I'm reflecting back on why I volunteered, how I prepared, how I performed and how I feel about doing it again.
I did the race two years ago and I found that it really motivated me to train my running more, which I really need to do as I've always been a pretty lousy runner. Last year I passed on the race and figured I would just train on my own. But I found that I never committed that thoroughly.
