I’ve never gotten involved in the online debate about whether or not to vaccinate children. Since I don’t have kids, I figured I would stay out of that fight (although I vaccinate my dog, so we can probably guess where I might land).
I have to wonder, though, if this TV commercial is making the back-and-forth even more heated…
Not only vaccinate your kids but re-vaccinate in their teens? The anti-vax crowd must be foaming at the mouth. But the ad’s emotional argument is effective.
Once again — staying out of it.

Today people across the US celebrate those who fathered them (and deservedly so).
But did you know today is also Go Skate Day?
The holiday was started by the IASC (International Association of Skating Companies) to promote skateboarding around the world.
So, clearly you need to get the dads in your life skateboarding as part of the festivities. Seriously — get a mental imagine.
It will be brilliant.
Happy Skating Father’s Day everyone!

I have discovered someone who is as big a fan of candy as I am.
Yes, it’s possible.
Dick Close, a graphic designer and illustrator from Cincinnati, had a booth at the Francisco’s Farm Arts Festival in Midway, Kentucky. The artist also enjoys watercolor, and his favorite subject matter is candy and popsicles.
I totally get that.
My favorite painting was of these three red gummy bears.
But I think you’ll find his entire portfolio is a sweet treat.
By the way, I did ask the artist if he eats the candy when he is finished painting. He said no.
He has talent and self-control that I will never know.

I had appointment after appointment today, so I was walking through the streets of Manhattan for hours….which meant I overheard a lot of chatter.
My favorites were between kids and their parents.
Child: Mom, can I get a smoothie?
Mom: I don’t have any money.
Child: Well, can’t we just buy some?
Child: …we saw Adrian afterwards.
Grandmother: It’s nice that he lives close by.
Child: Yes, right by the sewer.
Child in Stroller: Woo Woo Woo Woo Woo Woo…
Dad: Do you simply have to be heard all the time?
Child: (silence) Yes. Woo Woo Woo Woo

I don’t remember ever posing with the Easter Bunny as a child, so I’ve never thought about how they might look.
Scary or cute?
Hold fast to your kiddies, parents.
