Braving the Wicked Winter of Northern Illinois... with an "Axe" and a "Friend"

From the Client Relations Department at Rock Father HQ: THE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Life of Dad and Fisherman’s Friend for the #ToughRelief promotion.

Living in Northern Illinois, the weather is often unpredictable, with winter weather a particularly daunting challenge. The seasons have shifted by weeks, and the thermostat swings to and fro with an often schizophrenic level of irregularity. One day the wind chill is -27°, while the next swings upward to nearly 40°. From unbearable risk of frostbite to melting snow and back down below freezing once more, the winter months wreak havoc upon your body, and while I've not spent the winters at sea, I can imagine what it might be like (especially after visiting the shores of Lake Michigan in December), and I do enjoy unleashing the power of Fisherman's Friend lozenges to fight the inevitable sore throats and coughs that come with the winter months.

Of Course, Chuck E. Cheese's is Celebrating #NationalCheeseLoversDay!

It's #NationalCheeseLoversDay, and had I known that in advance, I would've planned more accordingly. My friend Charles (you know him as "Chuck") runs a national chain of pizza and fun emporiums, and to celebrate the day, he's got his staff out on the streets of New York City to let passers-by do a blind taste test of some new pizzas on the menu of an un-branded food truck. Check out the reaction of these non-actors when they find out that they're sampling new offerings from Chuck E. Cheeses!

Holiday Overindulgence and a Reminder for the New Year...

THE ROCK FATHER Magazine has partnered with XY Media Group & Pepto-Bismol as a Paid Ambassador for #PinkRelief

With the Holiday Season behind us, here I sit just days into the new year thinking back that the past few weeks have been, well, exhausting. Months of planning for events both personal and professional, and once December actually hits, it's like a complete blur until January. Now that the dust has settled a bit, I have to think about what settled my stomach: Pepto-Bismol. Sure, if Ralphie was here reading this website with his little decoder ring, he'd probably think of this post as "a crummy commercial" - but I'm completely serious when I say that the one time of the year that is completely ripe with overindulgence for me is Christmas. For some folks it's Thanksgiving (largely regarded as the biggest "eating" holiday of them all), but for me it's always from around December 20-31st each year. I should (and do) know better, but with munchies just sitting in the open around every corner, Holiday "grazing" leads to some big time stomach aches and indigestion. That's where #PinkRelief comes in.

Holiday Wish Guide: Candy Craft Chocolate Pen

One of the items that's popping up on year-end "Best-of" lists and "Gift Guides" around the web is the Candy Craft Chocolate Pen by Skyrocket Toys.  Wouldn't you know... it's on my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine, too! Perfect for "Little Foodies," we've had a Chocolate Pen here at Rock Father HQ for a few months now, and it's a fun novelty - not perfect - but something that kids love.

It's Time to Spread a Little KINDness...

THE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Life of Dad and KIND Snacks for this promotion...

In a time when a lot of what we hear can be less than kind, it's time to spread some kindness and start recognizing the KIND acts that take place millions of times a day. With the Holiday Season upon us, there's more folks out and about, and that makes it easier to spot some acts of kindness out there "in the wild." It can be a simple gesture like holding a door or helping someone when they fall... or a bigger act like volunteering at a local shelter, or doing something bigger like a toy drive (as we did here at Rock Father HQ).  There's a lot of people out there that are #kindawesome, and my friends at KIND Snacks want to help spread kindness by recognizing kind acts. Being KIND has been part of their mission since day one, and on World Kindness Day this year, they unveiled some shareable #kindawesome cards to recognize and share. I have some of those cards... but you can share kindness, too!
