I've been a member of AOM, for about a year or so now, and have enjoyed the time I have spent here; far more productive, informative and worth wile than Facebook, that's for sure! ;)
I have connected with some really nice men here, and value the friendships of the guys that I have met. This is such a great…Continue

Day 1: The first day was interesting, it really made me think of my core values which I had given it a thought in the past but I had never actually sat down with a piece of paper and pencil to actually think of what they are and write them down on paper.
Day 2: Even though it seems like an easy enough task, cleaning and shining my…Continue

My vacation was different than others; there were more men this time. Actually one more, to be exact.
We share a house at a very quiet, private, lake community, and usually the timing is off for the other husband to be there. I get to be the guy with two women and our families, in a place full of other women, their husbands back at their jobs working.
This time, as he exclaimed to me at the beginning of the week, "I'll get to vacation with you."
Somehow the extra man…Continue
Jason is an avid hunter who always goes out before every hunt, looking for the best place to set up camp, noticing signs of game, and scouting for the ultimate trophy. But one too many times, he has found himself out on a hunting trip wishing he had written something down while he was out exploring. Recently he found himself trying to find a certain ridge he had…Continue

A few days ago, someone's cell phone and a quarter must have fallen out of his pocket in one of the most wonderful places in the world: Our local subway system. [It's where I met my future husband.] I looked in the address book, and there was a number for "Home." I was going to take it home, call "Home" and tell them they could pick it up at my office or at my apartment sometime when my fiance's over, or I'd send it to them if they gave me an address.
But it's such a hassle…Continue

The way people strike us, the first impression they make, lingers long and often colours the relationship we have with them, if indeed we choose to have one with them at all. Even if our initial contact is through email, we still only get one chance to make a first impression, and seeing as though our image is…Continue
Like i have said before, I have been told my Dad and I were allot alike. I guess that is why whenever we were on opposite sides of a problem we butted heads so hard. But everything I know about being a man and a father I learned from him. During the last year he was with us I spent allot of ti me…Continue
I really miss my Dad around this time. I have been told my Dad and I were allot alike. I guess that is why whenever we were on opposite sides of a problem we butted heads so hard. But everything I know about being a man and a father I learned from him. During the last year he was with us I spent allot of time at the house helping him and just talking.
My Grand dad left around the time my dad was 13. He uses to tell me after 13 he was flying blind on what to do as a…Continue

Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always,even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for? - William J. Bennett - in a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November…Continue

Back in the office from a wonderful vacation and a few weeks of the hectic activity that only summer can produce: friends visiting, trips, swimming, canoeing, etc etc.
Have not been at this site much, and glancing at it again I see it with a new perspective.
For months I held myself to what other gents were doing here, what was expected of me if I wanted to be a Man, and it proved a wonderful opportunity for self pummeling and doubt.
Reading all the blogs and posts, I…Continue

Copy pasted from the forums, but I'm saving it here for later: here is my actual and my ideal morning;
07:30 Alarm goes off
07:45 Get out of bed shower.
07:55 Throw on whichever clothes my hands find when reaching into the wardrobe.
08:00 Read the first three pages of the newspaper while eating a slice of bread.
08:15 I roll myself a smoke, pour a cup of coffee and asks my wife if she'll mind walking…Continue

Hello world. I am rather new to this place, and I haven't quite settled in here yet. Still, I am happy to be here. I have been lurking for months, but only rarely been taking part in the discussions.
There are parts of my life which is stuck in a rut:
