The #FallFixUp of Rock Father HQ: Slashing. Trashing. Packing. Refreshing.

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media® and Rubbermaid. All opinions are that of James Zahn aka THE ROCK FATHER. #weavemade #FallFixUp  http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH

Having not lived anywhere but the Midwest on any year-round kind of basis, I can't be certain but tend to think that Fall fix-up and Spring clean-up are two things that have a parallel relationship only for those who live in regions that go through a proper four-season cycle. In the Fall you get the place all cleaned-up before winter, and then after the snow melts, you've got a whole load of surprises to clean-up in the Spring. But I love it. It's a chance to refresh things, and I'm ahead in the game this season.

Giveaway: Win a 4moms mamaRoo Infant Seat from PishPoshBaby!

I'm still impressed at how far baby products come in such a short period of time. Five years and two kids into this whole "parenting" thing, and the new products out now often trump what my wife and I had for our girls just a few years ago, and one example is the 4moms mamaRoo - an infant seat that blows away typical "bouncers" or "swings" by emulating the motions of real parents - Moms and Dads like YOU. Now, PishPoshBaby has teamed-up with my friends Thrifty Nifty Mommy and Viva Veltoro to get one lucky reader hooked-up with a 4moms mamaRoo of their own - and they've invited THE ROCK FATHER to take part in spreading the word on this great opportunity to win a fantastic prize for your little "new release."

Back to School: Kindergarten Begins... and a New Leader will Rise

It has been said that those who are typically anti-authority often make the best leaders. In general, a leader finds it hard to follow, and may wind up being deemed "anti-authority," when in reality - they're just meant to lead the charge. Or, so I like to think - me, a 37-ish year-old man who may have been tagged the "anti" on more than a few occasions, and years later has sometimes become the "authority" that he once may have been perceived to be against. One has to have tact while plotting a rise... but when does this type of ying-yang behavior begin? Perhaps it's in kindergarten, and believe me when I tell you that kindergarteners have no tact.

Review: TRANSFORMERS Battle Masters Fight Night - MEGATRON V. OPTIMUS PRIME (plus more TF action)...

TRANSFORMERSOver the past 18 months, I've noted a trend that "battling" has become a big thing again - one of those cyclical play patterns that's been around for ages, but is back in vogue. The action aisles and game departments are loaded with battle sets, "arenas" and rings (many of which I've reviewed), and with each new entrant comes higher technology, and usually, higher prices. Now comes a battle set that's decidedly low-tech, a throwback to the old-school Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, but even simpler... and that's exactly why the TRANSFORMERS Battle Masters Fight Night: MEGATRON V. OPTIMUS PRIME works.
