Father's Day

image story

My first father's day was really great. I mean, how could it not be? I have a great family, which includes the CUTEST kid on the planet and a really caring, loving wonderful wife.

We had a BBQ at the pool with family over, and some great gifts, but even more, memories and laughs. Can't ask for anything more for this happy Dad!

Golden Retriever Summoned To Court

POSTED: 10:46 am EDT June 15, 2005

NEWTON, Mass. -- A golden retriever named Murphy has received a summons to appear in court in Newton, Massachusetts, to answer a complaint that he was being walked without a leash and was not up to date on his license.

Actually, it wasn't Murphy but his owner, Steven Dean, who was supposed to get the summons. But since Murphy is also a common human name, the animal control officer apparently got confused and sent the complaint to the dog.

Dean tells the Boston Herald that he doesn't see how Murphy will be able to come up with the $50 fine.

Magistrate Henry Schultz says as far as he can remember, Murphy will be his first canine defendant.

Cabo San Lucas

With a baby! I have to say, the baby was the hit of the weekend. He smiled at almost everyone he saw (especially if you're female), and was really well behaved. Considering we were risking his life at every turn, including loading him off and on undocked water taxis in the pounding, surging surf.

For those of you that haven't been to Cabo before, the water taxis are more this

My beautiful wife and I made it to Lover's Beach where we found a rock cave/crevice to lay the baby in, and hung out on the sand. Just like being washed up on shore, huh.

Overall a great trip. Don't ask Aurora about the pirate ship cruise we went on - I don't think she remembers much about the Buccaneer cruise, however.

The Science of Diapers

I didn't know until I saw a magic trick being performed, just how amazing diapers are. Did you know that each diaper has an ingredient, called "super slurper" (note: I'm pretty sure this is NOT the scientific name), that can absorb up to 2000 times its weight in water and turn liquids into a gel?
