Protect Your Child from Bullying with Online School

The following is a sponsored guest post As parents, we strive to protect our children from the dangers of the world. However, many children experience threats in their classrooms and school hallways--spaces where they are supposed to feel safe and at ease. There are various things parents can do to help prevent teasing, tormenting, gossiping, or worse from peers. However, after reaching out to teachers and administrators, parents often feel as though they have exhausted all resources if the bullying continues. One option that an increasing number of parents are moving towards is taking their children out of traditional school. Instead, they are opting for alternative education methods, such as online ...

Vegas Vacation With the Family

I must have been to Las Vegas at least six or seven times in my life. Mainly for work. But this summer, I took the family for the first time ever. It was a short stopover on our way to the Grand Canyon, but we still managed to give the kids a good feel for what Vegas is all about. The Crazy Hotels I've always wanted to stay at Caesars Palace, but it was always too expensive. For some reason, prices were cheap so I took advantage. I know most hotel casinos on The Strip (are big and opulent but they all pale in comparison to Mighty Caesars. This place was HUGE. Seriously, ...

Save Swamp Thing From Extinction #SaveSwampThing

I was always a Marvel Zombie growing up. I would eat, breathe and sleep Captain America, Spider-Man, The Avengers, The X-Men and everyone else who fought for good in the Marvel U.

A Spider-Ham Cake Capped off a Spectacular 47th Birthday

Any day that kicks off with your own fully functional Infinity Gauntlet and ends with a spectacular Spider-Ham cake is one for the record books. Yes, today was my birthday. My 47th to be exact. And as always, my family made it extra special. The day started with a pile of presents. (After a cup of coffee first, of course.) I always create ridiculous wish lists every year that cover the gamut of geekdom from Star Wars Lego Death Star sets to Captain America hand warmers. Sometimes my wife goes with things on my list, other times she goes "off menu" and just nails it. That's exactly what she did this time. As a ...
