Bomb Appetit!

As you may have heard, Jake hit 400 subscribers on his YouTube channel the other day.  Needless to say, he was thrilled!  Thank you for all of you who helped.   For those few readers I have that aren’t friends on the book of faces, here’s the video we made where I tried to dissuade …

Sunday Shorts #3

Fit As A Fiddle Jake saw the doctor this week for a sports physical.  Status: healthy as a fifteen year old horse!  He’s ready.  He handled everything really well, with few exceptions.  He’s never been able to work an eye chart.  I forgot about this until I saw the medical assistant try and get him …

Sunday Shorts #1

Not everything that’s BigCalfGuy worthy is also of post length.  I figured once per week I’d round up some things that went down and share them on Sundays.  I give you … Sunday Shorts #1.  DFTBA I always leave the kids with a task in the morning.  Make two people smile.  Give a sincere compliment. …

Jake Has The Final Word

I blog “about” Jake; not necessarily “with” Jake, so naturally I had a lump in my throat when he busted me blogging about him this afternoon.   I was on picmonkey.com adding text to the featured image from my last post, Should Jacob Play Basketball?  Jake came by and saw the image as I was …

Jake’s Drinking Problem?

In Neurotribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity, I found a wonderful definition of echolalia; “the term of art for the way autistic people sample the speech they hear around them and repurpose it for their own use.”  The book, as an aside, was amazing.  It opened my eyes to so many …

Everyone Loves A Bad Boy

He’s back!  Jake’s two week ban from posting on YouTube has ended!  His first order of business?  Post the video I made in iMovie of his Special Olympics adventures.  I never did get a response from the “appeal form” I submitted requesting some level of intervention. I wanted to keep the two weeks for lesson-learning purposes, but …

The End of Jake’s YouTube Channel?

Jake’s in trouble. He’s violated YouTube Community Guidelines, and not for the first time.  He is posting unwanted and copywritten material in a pervasive and persistent manner to the popular site.  He’s pretty freaked.  We didn’t know for a couple of reasons.  1.  Who reads the fine print?  2.  Jake doesn’t check his email  3.  …

What a wild week!

It’s been a wild week.  We’re at the epicenter of the Super Storm that is basketball, cheering, pep band, and show choir.   All Star Rec Basketball and Pep Band are almost over, but Competition Cheering and Show Choir are ramping up for the upcoming regionals.  It leaves precious little free time.  Mix that in …

Mary’s Birthday Logo Bloopers

Jake is a fan of slapstick.  He loves the unexpected.  If you ask him which direction is up, he’ll point down.  He finds that kind of thing to be the pinnacle of comedy. He also fancies himself to be quite the videographer.  He loves to film himself playing video games in the basement and post …
