The Best Super Bowl Ever

Sunday’s contest in Texas between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers is going to be the Best Super Bowl Ever. Ever. Seriously. Why? No ‘effin cheerleaders, for one thing.  This is 1st time in many moons that the big game will feature franchises that do not employ useless […]

A Mixed Year

My 2010 can easily be divided into 2 parts. There’s the 1st one, from 12/30/09 to early June 2010. I was eating right, exercising regularly, losing lbs at an amazing pace without any magic tricks or pills.  I felt great.  I felt like I had done it, kicked my bad […]

The Holiday Slowdown

With the year coming to a close, my gears are grinding to a near-stop. I don’t expect you’ll see many new posts on OWTK over the next couple weeks. It’s been a wonderful year of music and books and other kid-stuff. Thanks for reading OWTK and for allowing me to […]

Welcome to the new OWTK.com

OWTK has finally received it’s extreme web makeover!  After 3 1/2-years of blogging, OWTK is now more of a magazine style site with featured articles in multiple categories, a pegged “Best New Kid’s Music” section, and such. I’m very excited about this new look and for the other things planned […]

A Christmas Tradition Worth Sharing and Keeping

Kids grow up, get married, and start families of their own.  It’s at this point, or maybe it actually happens earlier – during the growing up bit – that kids start to become detached from their parents.  Phone conversations become more and more infrequent, y’all see each other even less.  […]
