I had to make an emergency run to the shoe store to replace a pair of Aaron's shoes that our little dog Copper tore to shreds. The store employee kept offering assistance so I explained that I knew exactly the pair and size I needed. I thought I'd get a chuckle out of them when I shared that our little dog ruined the original pair. Instead, she responded... "Hey, weren't you here last month for the same reason?" (sigh) Yup. That was me. :-(

A Ninth Planet? Normally, I just scroll by fluff science pieces on the internet. But when it comes from a trusted source like Caltech... I pay attention.

Really wonderful advice for any aspiring songwriters out there struggling to make a start. Intended for kids but just as helpful for adults. 😉

This mid-season trailer is fantastic. I wasn't that impressed with the first season of Rebels. But this 2nd season just keeps getting better and better!

Song of the Deep looks like a fun game. It's got 2 things entertainment desperately needs more of... female heroines and undersea adventures!

I know a few young guys that'll be excited to learn about the DLC coming for Star Wars Battlefront this year.
'Star Wars: Battlefront' is getting a Death Star expansion pack later this fall.

Living in a seaside town, you see plenty of things wash up onto the beach... but this was a first.

Introduction
I produce the Aaron's World podcast. An imaginative science-themed audio drama for young kids. It was created by my son, Aaron, when he was 6 years old. It's taken us over 5 years to finish the adventure.

Aaron's World is a 50 episode audio-drama following Aaron's time traveling adventures through the prehistoric world with his trusty talking computer companion, INO. If you like adventures with dinosaurs, time travel, robots, and plenty of SCIENCE? Then this podcast is definitely for you!

You can subscribe via iTunes or visit (www.mydogrocket.com) for more information.

Google Plus is my social media home. I love it here. If you want to get to know me and my podcasting family a little better, you've come to the right place. I don't post a lot, but when I do it tends to be public, family-focused, with lots of pictures. And a generous sprinkling of tech, science, and geekiness thrown in for fun.

Oh, and I tend to change my cover photo to match what I'm currently working on in the podcast. Not always, but clues and hints to upcoming episodes do pop up from time to time.
