Here's to you +Bob Leukam 
Ah Father's Day - a day for new ties, BBQ, and a trip to the local golf course. On a day when all sorts of accolades will be shared on the interwebs, I'll chime in with a few of my own. Please note: the pics clearly have noth...

I dig deep into the interwebs to solve the riddle of the sombrero man on the back of our new car.

Just another reason we were should never assume! Even if sombreros are a reasonable and less-than insulting assumption.

I could have used this advice a few days earlier, but I think I can repair the damage.
Billions of people around the world have been getting turnt up over the past week: Prince George took his first steps and Kelly Clarkson had a baby! Additionally, the World Cup is back. I'll admit ...

A great read for fathers (and mothers too) this Father's Day weekend. Medium is a regular reminder to me that there is a lot of great writing to be found on the web.
I want to preface this by saying I’m not the best dad. I’m not the worst dad, either (that honor belongs to this guy), a…

A little self-diet history for future reference.
I decided not to say diet in the title because I know that if you're literate - I'm guessing you are by this point - you skip a lot of posts titled diet just like I do. So, full disclosure, I'm going to talk about diet a litt...

Baseball is to data as peanut butter is to ____. 
It’s mid-May and Major League Baseball is in full swing. What better time than now to perform our first MLB players census? Fans of the blog will remember our previous work on the NFL census and the NBA census, which turned out to be very interesting looks into the diversity of professional athletes. The MLB [...]

    I joke that I make people's dreams come true, but often the best part of a joke is that sliver of truth hidden in our language. I really enjoy helping people set up the foundation of their financial lives. The financial world has grown to be a sprawling maze of complicated options and opportunities. I take pride in making sure people have the basics down pat so they're prepared to take whatever next steps their lives call for.

Introduction
About me? In one letter or less? F  I enjoy exploring my Faith, because it makes me understand why I'm here. I love my Family, because we're all in this with someone. I'm a Fitness nut, it's amazing what you can learn about yourself when you push. I have a passion for Finance, it's my profession too. Like all the greats, I love Food, cooking is often my creative outlet. Lastly, though I can really stink at this one sometimes, I get a kick out of Fashion, it's become my go-to non-verbal form of expression.

I've made becoming a self-made man a hobby. I love building upon my knowledge, skills, and self-awareness. I believe that too many of us spend too much of our lives trying to be what we think someone else wants us to be. I'm not saying to should be independent to the point of casting off those around you, just that you embrace who you are and let those around you enjoy that person too.

My bucket list is growing: 
- 500 mile bike trip to my hometown in MN
- Run a marathon
- Kayak trip, open to suggested locations
- Climb a mountain, also open
- Brew my own beer (not just once)
- Build and fill wine cellar
- Buy and learn to use a great camera
- Travel Italy (again)
- Travel in Napa Valley
