Onward and Upward, A Hero’s Journey: Review Of Pixar’s Onward – Single Dad, Parents Article

Certain films resonate with me more than other pictures.  Some times, like when I watched Shawshank Redemption just as my marriage fell apart, it’s about timing.  Other times, like with the father-son relationship in Road to Perdition, it has more to do with the characters involved.  With Road, Tom Hanks played a hard-nosed hitman who kept his son out of his business world, until they collided, and he had to go on the run to protect his son.  I resonated…

The Dad’s Disney Plus Extra: Volume 4 – Single Dad, Parents Article

It’s been two weeks, which is far too long when it comes to writing about Television these days.  New things come out every week.  And we can hardly keep up with the Joneses if we only review every two weeks or so.  So it’s not my goal.  My goal is to come back here every week and produce new content both here and at my vlog for you to laugh at, dissect, and make fun of.  Or maybe just the…

Welcome back to the third in our series of all things Disney Plus.  We have taken to the airwaves to broadcast our likes and dislikes about all things Disney Plus, including those things we haven’t decided on how we feel quite yet.  (We are still deciding on how we like the releasing of TV shows every week versus dropping it all at once and binge-watching them.)  Disney Plus has taken the airwaves by storm, even if Netflix still seems to…

Double Back Again: A Review Of The Rise Of Skywalker – Single Dad, Parents Article

A long time ago, in a galaxy far away, or at least 42 years ago in a universe so much different than our own, a young hero by the name of Luke Skywalker burst onto the scene.  Sure, he was a bit winy. (The original Kristen Stewart, only a boy.)  But he had some amazing guidance, in the form of one Obi-Wan Kenobi (Alec Guinness). He also brought amazing friends including, Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford). …

The Dad’s Disney Plus Extra: Volume 2 – Single Dad, Parents Article

Welcome back to the second week of the Guide’s video deep dive into all things Disney Plus.  As Disney Plus has gained rapid success in the streaming market (partly because they are Disney and partly because they are so cheap), we decided it would be good to look at the successes and failures of the new television streaming medium.  We took all the things we thought we could review, and then packaged it together in a discussion about the channel.…

Plan a Trip to Disney World on Budget – Single Mum, Parents Article

It seems like Disney is on every family’s vacation bucket list. But it can be much more expensive than expected to make the trip. When you plan a trip to Disney World it’s important to keep cost in mind. Walt Disney World vacationers can spend much more than expected if they are not careful. I have been fortunate enough to have a great experience. Though it can still be a bit pricey, with conservative planning and a little budgeting, I’ve…

365+ Days To Disney World: The Guide To EPCOT – Single Dad, Parents Article

When it comes to planning things in life, sometimes life happens.  And sometimes when you plan things in your life, it stops you dead in its tracks.  You cannot continue as planned, no matter what.  I seemed to have run into one of those situations with this Disney trip.  I still want it to happen.  And I’ll keep trying to make it happen. Unfortunately, the actual trip date may be pushed back a good eight months.  (More car issues and…

For years he was obsessed with the driving sensation and passed his love of the character on to his little brother who took the reins. Now both my…
