My son graduated from high school this year. In the fall, he’s going to college. For some reason, I did not grasp the significance of his high school graduation during the event itself. Maybe it was the intense crowds and poor organization of it all? Maybe it was the struggles we endured during his early years in high school. Maybe I don’t know what it was?

What’s your favorite novel? Do you like Grisham? Prefer historical fiction? Romance? Epics? I’ve loved a lot of the great epic novels such as Herman Wouk’s WWII books, The Winds of War and War and Remembrance. I also liked great historical fiction like James Clavell’s Asian Saga of King Rat, Tai-Pan, Shōgun, Noble House, Whirlwind, and Gai-Jin. What about the Fifty Shades of Grey? Is that your cup of tea? My favorite book of all-time is Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett. What are yours?

Fresh from its record-breaking haul of Olivier Awards, this week I check out one of London's newest and most critically acclaimed theatre productions, based on beloved children's author Roald Dahl's classic novel...

Even though RT's last blog consisted largely of moaning and cynicism of the Olympics and anything which went with it, RT did actually go and see the Olympic torch go past in Kidderminster. In fact, RT was so close that the heat of the flame actually brought warmth to RT's face. Now in a mood of loving Britain and everything red, white and blue, the great question has come to the mind of Rational Teenager... What changed?

Now that my first-born is going to college, passed his 18th birthday milestone, and I’ve been a dad for nearly two decades, it’s time with this Father’s Day to reflect on some highs and lows of my dad-journey! Without a doubt, being a dad has been the highlight of my life. Granted, walking on the grounds of Wimbledon and seeing The Stones are also high on my list, but those fit more in the fun category of life and are fleeting in nature. Being a dad, as the title of this column implies, is a more enduring and challenging experience!

When I began writing, my initial goal was to be a dad advocate as my own experiences motivated me in that direction. I still advocate on behalf of dads and all parents. But, as I ventured into the world of Social Media, I realized I had another goal of larger importance and that was to do my part to make the world a better place.

Finally, after a long week of exams it's time for a break and i'm so glad it's here the past week has been filled with GCSE exams and in my spare time even more revision. and the bad thing is that i still have exams to go back to after the holiday i have a big science exam and a few others so that means i may have to take my revision books with my on holiday and wont that be a lovely experience. i would also like to talk about the diamond jubilee on Tuesday, Tuesday is the official day of it however most people will be celebrating from the weekend on wards. i can just about remember the golden jubilee i was in my first year of primary school it was a lovely hot summers day, we were told to come in red white or blue and we did maypole dancing on the school field. also we were all given a golden jubilee mug to celebrate the occasion. After the mini heatwave we had this week and some of last week i think it's now coming to an end, we'v had a few thunder storms since which i presume it due to this abnormal heat and now next week it's supposed to be showers and grey sky's for most of next week, so i'm very jealous for the lucky ones who will be jetting off to hotter climates!
