Appleseed Comic Con 2015

It's spring, which means the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming, and a killer robot is here to destroy us all. Wait, what? Yes, folks, it's the time of year when superheroes descend on the city, both at the cineplex, as The Avengers: Age of Ultron opens in theatres Friday, May 1, and at

It’s hard to believe I’ve been a Counting Crows fan for more than half my life. I remember how much I wanted to learn to play guitar after hearing “Mr. Jones”. And I learned how – eventually, sort of – but couldn’t actually play “Mr. Jones” because my guitar was a little too beat up (it ... More ›

Notre Dame Women's Basketball Comes to the Coliseum

Fall is pretty much my favorite time of year. There are many reasons for that, not the least of which is the return of college basketball. I am first and foremost a Purdue Boilermaker, but I went to law school at the University of Dayton, so I have an allegiance to the Flyers too. But college ... More ›

WWE Puts the "Smackdown" on Fort Wayne - and you can WIN TICKETS!

I really enjoy attending live events – concerts, plays and musicals, lectures, sporting events – but not always for the same reason. Sometimes it’s because I love the music, sometimes it’s because I want to learn something, sometimes it’s because I want to support my favorite team, and ... More ›

My Favorite Places to Run - Shoaff Park

The first of my “Best Places to Run in Fort Wayne” posts featured Concordia Theological Seminary, and I hope some of you have had a chance to check it out (both the post and the campus). I wrote that post after a “heated” run – man, it was hot that day – but soon after, the weather took a ... More ›

My Fort Wayne Favorite - Lions Park

Folks who live in Fort Wayne, Indiana, have a lot to be proud of, not the least of which is our amazing park system. My favorite park – and honestly, my favorite place in the city – is Lions Park.

Out of This World Breakfast at Cosmos Restaurants

So the last post I wrote (although not necessarily the last post of mine that you read) was about the Fort4Fitness Fall Festival and, to a lesser extent, about my getting back into shape. Ironic, then, that the subject of this post is…pancakes. Yes, for all my bluster about healthy living, I ... More ›
