Rock and Roll Summer Camp

Camp Jam, the rock and roll summer camp for kids 11-17 (and Camp Jam Kidz* for 7-10 year-olds) is coming to Phoenix for two sessions June 18-22 and June 25-29. No musical experience is neccessary for Camp Jam Kidz; the older kids are expected to have been playing for at least six months.

The Camp Jam blog has a profile of the Phoenix instructors.

* You know it’s hardcore because of the ‘z’.

Another Sex Offender Map

I know some may say that sex offenders are people too and that they should just be left alone and not be looked so discriminately through a magnifying glass, but since I’m actually a stalker, I would like to share my knowledge to the rest of you: Family Watch Dog

Notification in my mail today

I got an important Sex Offender Notification letter in my mail today. Apparently there is a sex offender that just moved in our neighborhood. Yikes! Before we had a child, I would have just tossed it out with the rest of the junk mail, but this has me concerned for our child’s safety. I checked out this website and was shocked to see so many out there amongst us.

Number 19 – Deep Fried Twinkies at the Arizona State Fair


The first deep fried twinkie I ever had was at the Arizona State Fair. I have yet to try the deep fried cheesecake, but I imagine that if I do it will also be at the Arizona State Fair. Along with my first camel ride. Cause is that not what state fairs are for?

Number 23 – Phoenix Zoo


Babysitting my nieces and nephews, for me, is the best form of birth control. I love them but entertaining them for extended periods can be a challenge. That is why I love the Phoenix Zoo. Voted one of the top 5 zoos for children and the adults who love them. The kiddies love the zoo and I love the otters. Add to that side trips running up to the hole in the rock and visiting the pyramid that houses the tomb of the first governor and my job as uncle is done.
