Not too bad. Will keep looking.

The other day my mom, awesome person she is, got me a present. I had discussed my switch to DESRs that I was planning (double edge safety razor) for the near future. Then, the other day, she came to me with a gift. One of these bad boys : http://bit.ly/x1jPhY

I tried it that night. While it wasn't the best shave I have had, it was certainly manlier than any other. I have decided to continue to save up for the DESR instead of making this single edge…

The right choice

I'm 16 years old, and a boy who is very interested in traditional manhood - hiking, carpentry when I'm older as a hobby, strength and dignity like Roosevelt and Lincoln... those sort of things appeal to me.

But I might be one of the only ones I know who values that kind of life. 99% of my surrounding kids are "Cool rebels who do anything they want" because "We are free and have no regrets", in other words are going after tattoos and piercings (Like the kind that is a bar through your…

Am I Destined to Conform to the Daily Grind?

Upon graduating form High school 9 years ago, where I was an average student, I struggled to decide what direction I wanted to take my life.  Like most 18 year old “men”  I felt the pressure to make that decision and chart my life course.  Unable to decide I attended a junior college where for the first semester I focused more on a social education rather than an institutional education.  The next semester I found myself lacking direction and motivation to continue class.  I dropped some…

I have been following AoM daily now for about 2 years, and finally decided to sign up for a page.  I make this choice because I really want to be able to toss ideas around with like minded people.  The AoM community serves as a great gathering place for people who seem to share very similar interests.  I have gained vast insight into many topics in my life thanks to following AoM, and now I am hoping to expand that knowledge by sharing in your experiences.

Unconscious behaviour: using iPods

I’ve written a couple of times about unconscious behaviour – actions done without thinking, especially without thinking about how our actions will affect other people – and I’d like to offer a tip for those who use iPods or other portable music systems.

If you’re like me and you take public transit,…

I'm Rich!

I confess that I cheated one time when I was playing Monopoly with a group of friends. 


I was the banker and I just got caught up in all the excitement.  All that money changing hands.  So what if I skimmed a little off the top?  Who would notice?  What difference could it make anyway?  My downfall came when at the end of the game not only was I the winner but the bank was practically…

Scholar Warrior Part-2

OK so here I am coming with part-2. To be warrior is mind set, you will make some people uncomfortable. I guess it is you idea of what kind a warrior you will be, that is are you basing it upon some corny Hollywood type, or real one that comes out of your own heritage. In my family there were and are many warriors, some of the ideals what we should do. When I was kid my Grandfathers and Great grandfathers had fought in wars. I think how they were an Officer & a gentlemen. They were…

Being a Scholar & Warrior part-1

As I approach my 50th year, I find myself looking at who I am and what I have done with a since of pride in a job well done. What I mean by that, is other men refer to me as Man's Man, a Self made Man or a Scholar Warrior. People who know me respect me in a variety of circles. Some who know me from the ring say they do not want to fight me again. This is from having fought over 100 bouts in 41 divisions over many years. Yet all say that I am good and fair & fighter. As fellow said you…

Bless the Maker and All His Water

Forcing myself to drink more water.  I believe I live in a constant state of dehydration.  It would seem Gavin does also.

However, I promise not to go berserk and put a strain on my body from drinking too much water.  Some experimentation would suggest that for my diet and activity, about 44oz a day works right now.

Water is life for several reasons"

  • Fat cells in my body are used to store water.  If my body gets enough water, those cells…

Image disconnect

A business contact that I have a lot of faith in sent me a link to a sales tip blog by a salesman who has been working in sales for decades and has influenced thousands of people with his sales tactics. I went to the blog site and there on the first page, before any text, before any sales tips, was a…

A Day in the Life................

They'll come to Iowa for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your driveway not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as children, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only $20 per person. They'll pass over the money without even thinking about it: for it is money they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they…

People ask me why I dont write a book

I always have some story to tell. I always have some experience to explain what I'm talking about.... I have been through so much crap that a couple weeks ago when an old friend ran into me, you know what he said? "Damn man... I thought you'd be dead by now..." ..... ..... I am 26 fucking years old, and that was his thought..... I deserved it though.... So people often ask me why I don't write a book about all those experiences.... Some tell me "It might make best…

Bittersweet Chocolate

Yesterday my daughter approached me with a box filled with chocolate bars.  "What's that for?" I asked.  And the child I remember rocking in my arms and singing softly too as a baby answered me as a young woman,  "We're selling chocolate bars to raise money for our prom".

I didn't want to buy any,  but I had too....And how bittersweet that chocolate is,  because what is within the folds of paper and foil are memories of where we've been and where she's…

Bitch slap: how do you handle conflict?

Today's post is born of a real personal experience I had at a friend's 50th birthday party last month. It got me thinking  about humans, human emotion, and human behaviour.

Oh the Insanity

A few points:

  • Exercising around a 20 month old can be dangerous when you almost step on him and mildly twist an ankle to avoid killing your own son
  • The elder son likes the point system, and my wife revealed a bunch of toys she did not give for Christmas (she overbought).  This means the catalog we gave him for points has a much larger selection.
  • While I would enjoy trying fencing, there are no places even remotely close within the lehigh…

The diaphragm

Your diaphragm is made up of muscular tissue and reaches up to the bottom of rib cage. Your diaphragm is the one that separates the abdominal cavity from the thoracic cavity which is comprised of the heart, ribs, and lungs and is particularly accountable for the breathing processes.

The diaphragm can be separated into 3 segments: the sternal, costal, and lumbar segments. The sternal part…

A Good Man Died....

On September 4th, 2008 my Dad lost his brief fight with lung cancer.  Here's a little something I wrote at his passing.  He was a man of great character and strength.  A little man with a lion's heart.  We found our balance as father and son only a short time before his diagnosis and passing.  That brief period of time was priceless.

"A Good Man died today....

Or should I say his body ended it's fight...

In my mind his soul left it's…
