Our Family Manifesto

Sue and I are very new to this parenting gig, but we've been thinking and talking about being a family for the 10 years we've been together, practically from the first day we met. As we walk into this wonderful experience with our eyes wide open, knowing that there is so much we don't know, one of the things we do know from our lives in the tech industry is that in order to get somewhere, you have to have a goal in mind -- somewhere you want to end up.

From that perspective our Family Manifesto was born -- five simple main core values we want to raise our kids by. It's possible -- likely -- that these will change over time. But they allow us to put a stake in the ground with core principles that are important to us as we start this journey.

Our Family Manifesto:

Juicing and Jazz

On Man of the Couch

This post has nothing to do with jazz, I'm just a sucker for alliteration. It does, however, have everything to do with juicing. We're currently borrowing a juicer from a co-worker so if we don't like it and don't want to stick with it we aren't out a couple hundred bucks.

I feel like the benefits of juicing are pretty well known. If you don't know then here's a simple yet highly scientific formula:

Juice+excercise+radiation = Superhero

exercise+radiation-juice = Side-kick

Aside from not wanting to be a lame sidekick, we are also interested in the nutritional benefits. It's a quick easy way to take care of a couple servings of fruits and vegetables. Something we're both not very good at. Plus I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and it scared me straight.
