My Top 10 Candy Bars

So it’s February, and it’s time for a Top 10 list. When thinking of February, Valentine’s Day was the first thing that came to mind. I considered doing a Top 10 Romantic Comedy movies list, but I’ve done movie lists back in December 2016 and June 2016. I thought another one would be too soon, […]

My Top 10 Books Read in 2016

The monthly Top 10 list is now a well-established feature here at The Stuff, and like last January 1st, I’m doing a Favorite Books Read list. I guess now that it’s my second year doing it, I can officially call it an annual tradition. Yay! Just like last year, the actual release date of the […]

My Top 10 Songs of 2016

Every summer, I run a game for my Facebook friends where I choose a decade and quote a different song every day. The first person to correctly name the song and artist get a point each, and at the end of the summer, the friend with the most points wins bragging rights. Been doing that […]

My Top 10 Christmas Movies

It’s the first day of the month, so it’s time for a Top 10 list! Being December, let’s go with Christmas movies. No offense to my non-Christian friends and followers, of course, and in lieu of an Honorable Mention list, I’ll shout out a few Hanukkah movies and/or specials. If you haven’t seen any of […]

My Top 10 Fictional Presidents

This country is on the verge of a historic presidential election in many ways. Not going to get all political about it, but I thought it would be fun to consider some fictional presidents that could conceivably do a better job than the current crop of candidates. No one else voting on this but me. […]

My Top 10 2016 MLB Playoff Teams

I did this last October, and I can now officially make it an annual tradition. Ten MLB teams make the playoffs, and that leads itself nicely to a Top 10 list. I would have posted this yesterday—on the first of the month like my previous top 10 lists—but not all playoff spots were locked up. […]

My Top 10 Schoolhouse Rock Songs

With students (and teachers like myself) back to school, it seemed more than fitting to dedicate this month’s Top 10 list to Schoolhouse Rock. For those of you who don’t know what Schoolhouse Rock is, it’s a series of educational animated music videos that ABC aired between Saturday morning cartoons during the 1970s and 80s. […]

My Top 10 Board Games

During the summer time, my daughters spend Monday through Friday with me. We set aside one night a week to be family game night. Even during the school year, when they’re with me most weekends, we regularly play games together. Because of this tradition and it being the middle of summer time, I decided to […]

My Top 10 Mermaids

My next book, Skipping the Scales is scheduled to be released on July 14. It’s the sequel to my Young Adult mermaid book Flipping the Scales. In celebration of the upcoming book, I’m declaring July 2016 as MERMAID MONTH here at the Stuff! Seems fitting for summertime, with more people on the beaches and in […]

My Top 10 Baseball Movies

It’s summertime! The weather is getting warm here in New England, and the Red Sox are playing well (after two abysmal seasons). That’s right, I’ve got baseball fever, so this month’s Top 10 List is devoted to baseball movies. Whether you think I strike out or hit a home run with this batting order doesn’t […]
