The weather here in Northern Illinois continues to be weird. Maybe those wacky Mayans were right... but at this point, anyone that wants to deny Global Climate Change is a real blockhead. We skipped Spring and went straight into Summer in mid-March, and while we've hit proper Spring temperatures for the first week in April, it's supposed to freeze...
When we last left the Growums, Tomicio, Baby Basil, Regan O., and Belle Peppa were comfortably settling into their coco pellets for a healthy dose of sunlight and warm water. It's been just over a week since the first installment of The Rock Father's Growums Adventure was posted, and this morning an email arrived here at Rock Father HQ from...

For the past two years I've been telling people that my first job is that of being a a father - The Rock Father - to my little daughter. Everything else I do is secondary, whether it be my normal gig in being a jerk on the music side of this website, directing videos, or whatever other adventures happen to come my way. During the...
