Picture It's football season, which for us - like so many families - means our schedule is packed now through October, and the vast majority of the dates blocked out have something to do with the gridiron. No need to guess where we'll be on Friday nights, either. We'll don our black and red to sit on me... Read more of this blog post »

So, this title, Family Values, was totally tongue in cheek. If you’ve read me long enough, you know that sometimes I have to have fun with a title: Fournicopia, Between a SEAL and a Hard Place, Sm{B}itten—for that one I even offered pronunciation advice, smuh-bitten… If you can’t have fun…


Anyways...

When a dying man approaches The Order with a vengeful request of necromancy, The Order refuses. But funeral director and funerary priest Jay Ray, finds the request intriguing. Amid mounting rumors of The Order’s i...

Three years ago today, Basecamp announced Highrise was spinning off as our own company. We knew we had a good tool on our hands that was already well loved by tens of thousands of users (some of whom are celebrating 10 year anniversaries every day!). So we had to make sure any changes we made sim...

“Our language limps when we speak of God’s love for us. We have no real understanding of infinite or eternal. But in the end, it seems best if we think of heaven as perfect union with God, the giver of life.


Though we may not be able to comprehend heaven to its fullest extent here on earth and in...

I've been suffering from seasonal allergies to dust, mold, pollen, ragweed. I recently learned that treatment sessions at a Himalayan Salt Room can help ease allergy symptoms.

I booked a 30-minute session for $55.00 the other day and I can say it was totally worth it--my nose felt clear and I had... Read more of this blog post »

Scot McKnight Scot McKnight's blog:
The argument is that it is not about history. Well, yes, it is. It’s about sordid, depraved history that does not deserve to be memorialized in public but hidden in the dark recesses of a museum. Instead of tearing them down lawlessly as we did Saddam Hussein’s statues, they deserve to be dismant... Read more of this blog post »

A reader sent in this wonderful website, Rejected Princesses, that profiles princesses who won’t make the cut at Disney, because “well-behaved women rarely make history.”

That’s it, folks! Thank you for all the lovely questions and I’m sorry I couldn’t get to even a fraction of them. Several of you only sent messages in too, and I really appreciated them. Y’all are the best.

Jessie Pinkham Jessie Pinkham's blog:
It's common in the writing community, I've learned, to divide us into two camps: plotters and pantsers. A plotter, as the name implies, plans out the plot of their story before writing. A pantser writes by the seat of their pants.

I've thought about this dichotomy recently while watching a video... Read more of this blog post »

Tom Perrotta Interview with Tom Perrotta
Fresh off the series finale of HBO's adaptation of The Leftovers, Perrotta is back with a look at sex and midlife second-guessing. "I'm very interested in sex and the way that ideas about sex and what's permissible keep changing. So the fun of the book is to take a middle-aged person and plunge them into what is a youthful world of dating and sex," he says....more

The author of The Emperor's Children explores the friendship between two girls threatened by impending adulthood in her new book, The Burning Girl. "For everybody—but for girls, certainly—there's a lot of growing up that involves…the word that comes to mind is damage," says Messud....more
