I wrote this for “The Mom and Caregiver” magazine this month, and thought that it would be fun to post it to my site as a Father’s Day tribute. A father’s role has changed a ton in the past several decades. The rise of feminism has resulted in some pretty great things, like a much… Continue reading What’s So Great About Being A Dad?
Kaylin on the future of GM from Brian Garside on Vimeo I spent some time last night speaking to my children about GM’s recent decision to declare bankruptcy, leaving them with a nice fat $10 billion dollar 12% investment in what was already a useless company. Heaven forbid that our government had taken that $10… Continue reading What our children think of GM
Please note: This was my April Fool’s day joke for the year, it’s not true, Char, Kaylin, Maks and I are very happy with the life we’ve made in London, and I really enjoy the work I do at Info-Tech. I’ve been keeping this one under my hat for a long time, but now the… Continue reading My big announcement
Charlene sent me an article recently on what it’s like to be a stay at home mom, and it got me thinking, I’ve figured out a lot of little analogies that help put some perspective on what it’s like to have little kids rolling around the house. Most of the people I work with are… Continue reading What it’s like to have kids

After a really brief look at other stuff (a day or… Continue reading Changing streams

It’s not nearly as big, just one 24′ wide by 8′ tall unit. This one’s built with… Continue reading I shall call it mini-behemoth
Yoda gets curb stomped from Brian Garside on Vimeo. It’s a senseless tragedy. Poor little Yoda was just sitting there doing nothing, when suddenly…Kaylin happened. It’s like a scene from Dagobah History X. This little movie was created on my new Flip Video Ultra, which I’ll post a review of soon (it’s pretty frigging awesome).
We had planned to go to the Western Fair on Friday, but because it was such a miserable day, we decided to hold off until Saturday. We left our house around 11 Saturday morning and arrived at 11:30, greeted as we were by a sleepy, quiet little affair. Hours later the place would be a… Continue reading Kaylin visits the fair
Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 2 Wow…talk about a busy weekend. Not only did we have a garage sale, do lunch with friends, see Grandma and Grandpa, have Char’s sister over, put in a couple of steps, go shopping for some cool stuff, go to Storybook Gardens and visit Rib Fest…TWICE, but I also got some… Continue reading Garage Sales and Geometry Wars
