Howdy,So I had a thought: Do guys really need a man cave? Is it important to have a space all your own separated from your family? The reason I ask is a good friend of mine who is a father of 3 has…Continue
Howdy,I am the father of a newborn girl, my first child. She is awesome. My wife (her Mother) is also awesome. Right now she is in auto pilot mode of sleeping, eating and pooping and this part is…Continue
"Its worth a watch. The film touches on the idea of the darkness and evil that lurks in the mundane and boring world of middle class America and how we are all affected by it. Very good film and Frank Booth (the films bad guy) is one of those…"
"Of course I will throw in some cold shouldered indifference every now and then too: Ignore her when she speaks, make her open the door for ME, slowly control every aspect of her life and make her give up contact with friends and family...
"I agree. I think that the most important thing to do overall is to love her Mom and treat her like a queen so my kid can see the example.
That seems to be a very prevalent response in this thread and I am defiantly taking note. "
"Thats interesting. Yeah ultimately if she chooses it and her mom and I deem it acceptable media for our household we won't deny her (princess orientated films) but I figure I can limit access to it at least or as you mentioned, we can…"

"If the dog is in pain, it's probably best to bite the bullet, tell the girl the truth. I'd advise taking the dog to the vet. Make sure everybody gets a chance to say goodbye to the dog. You might want to bring the girl…"
"Gas or electric? If gas, are the valve & piping to the heater in good shape? (I had a wall furnace that didn't really work well...until I found out the valve handle was bent about 45 degrees. Didn't work too well with…"
Brand new 50 gallon water heater still can't fill a standard sized tub, but starts giving tepid water at 25 gals or so. Service call couldn't find a problem.

"Just my $.02, but I think 10 is old enough to be pretty honest about the subject. I would not surprise her. Death happens, it's part of life. Dogs do not live as long as people tend to, and our dog is getting older and sicker, and more in pain.…"
