A couple of days ago, I was listening to my local radio station in the morning at the bus stop with my kids.  The DJs were talking about a news story out of New Jersey.  Basically a New Jersey Judge ruled that a woman in New Jersey has a right to keep the father out of the delivery room when she's giving birth.  I was all, wait what?  This is a law … [Read more...]

We had a little taste of spring on Tuesday when it hit 61 degrees here in Philly. I opened up the windows and aired the house out a bit and it was divine.
