  1. I really enjoyed those resolutions. Especially yours patrick. Father’s ate crucial in their kids lives and not enough men talk about their role as a father.

      1. Very cool. Sounds good. As a father of a young son with another child on the way and a gamer I am very conscious of needing to find a good balance in life and remembering that gaming add much as I enjoy it is my hobby.
