How cool is this?

JCPenney has issued a new Father’s Day ad campaign that really makes me smile.  It features a family with two dads.  And it turns out this is an actual family, not just actors portraying a gay couple with children.

I thought it was pretty funny myself

A lot of Patriots fans have been talking about the new video on Funny or Die by Pats quarterback Tom Brady.  Basically, it is all about accents, and of course he doesn’t have one, much less a Boston one.  He seems to be a good sport about the whole thing, and I always applaud anyone who doesn’t mind doing some self-parody.  Anyway, for all you non-Boston people who haven’t seen it yet, here it is.

Looks like I will have no phone for a while

Well, as Kelly mentioned yesterday, I lost my phone.  I am still not entirely sure if it was accidentally dropped and some random person picked it up or if it was actually stolen, but I did file a report with the Boston Police Department.  The security software I installed was working properly, as we were able to keep the person who got it from using it.  Plus we were able to track it, which was somewhat helpful but also a little annoying.   Tracking does not help if the updates are only every five minutes (or otherwise intermittent) and if you are in a very crowded area (which I was).  So even though there were times I was literally within 25 yards of it, maybe 10 yards, I could not find it or the person who had it.  And the BPD were just not that interested in helping me recover it, which is just annoying.  At any rate the battery is probably run down now and I doubt I am getting it back.  So until I can get a new phone for next to nothing (June 9th at the earliest) I will have no cell phone.  So please don’t call it.
