It's Fall, and with my favorite time of year comes some changes in habits - and, a few that are just seasonal alterations to the regular routine. Living in The Midwest, October brings a vibe that's unlike other areas of the country during this season. While the crisp air, harvest aromas and oodles of seasonal fun can be found in many parts of the U.S., it always seems that The Midwest becomes a bit darker... and a bit spookier. There's a good reason why so many horror movies are set in The Midwest, and right here in my home State of Illinois - they're rooted in reality! Michael Myers? Haddonfield, Illinois. Crystal Lake? There is one. Elm Street? Lots of 'em. POLTERGEIST III, CANDYMAN and CHILD'S PLAY? All set in Illinois. You want to survive October in The Land of Lincoln? I'll give you five essentials - but keep in mind that these are great tools to use no matter where you might roam... It's werewolf season.

Years ago, especially before we had kids, I definitely had a short fuse at times. These days, things are different, and as my friend Geno recently told me, a more accurate depiction would be that I have "a very long fuse attached to a very big bomb" - so it's important to stay calm, cool and collected under extreme circumstances. For better or worse, I've been in some challenging circumstances over the years, and learning to keep cool is a fine art that I have yet to fully master - but I'm getting better. A lot of it comes down to the appearance of being calm, cool and collected - even though there's something brewing beneath the surface. This is especially helpful when dealing with something that I do daily... children, and all the things and people that go with them.

Every time I sit down to pen one of these Back-to-School posts, I still find myself tripping over the fact that we're going to have a first grader and a pre-preschooler this year. We start late compared to some (end of the month), so there's still a little bit of ramp-up time, but I'm getting things in order. My toolkit of essentials is robust, but I'm throwing down five of my top picks right here on the site - from fuel for the day to grooming, rock to play. Check this out...

Ah, the summer months... a time for adventure, excitement, and of course, The Indisposables - those essential items that just help to make things better. For 2015, I'm highlighting just five new indisposable essentials that can be considered to be certified "Rock Father-approved" picks. If you're a regular reader, there's actually a good chance that these have already crossed your browser in a more subtle form as they've already become a part of our daily routine, and hopefully they'll soon be a part of yours as well!

The Indisposables are back, folks. And this time? That's right, we're taking you on a trip to an exotic place called Comfortopia - a land where you could win big - scoring all 10 of the Indisposable Comforts from an HDTV and XBOX to the simple things, like proper undies and a great pair of pants. In fact, there's over $5,000 in "Indisposable" prizes, and some of that glory could be yours.

A few weeks into Spring and there's much to be considered. I've been thinking about baseball a lot (and writing about it on occasion), especially since we've been playing in the yard quite a bit (lots of "balls over the fence" to be retrieved). We've also begun some gardening activities - plotting the plan for the months ahead, while getting the post-winter clean-up all taken care of. There's also some "rocking" to take place, and with that comes a list of five important items when it comes to spring at Rock Father HQ. You could call them "The Indisposable" items of spring...
