July 29 at 3:08 pm

Bhangra, Brickfair, Block Parties, County fairs, BBQs, Southern Fried Festival, Kegs and Corks, Wine Camp, Classic Trains, Hot rods, Fiddles…we’ve got something for every taste on funseek. We’re kicking off August literally with Bhangra, the lively Indian folk dance! Check out DJ Rekha at the Black Cat on August 2, 2014. DJ Rekha, the founder of NYC’s long-running Basement Bhangra night, is credited with helping to popularize bhangra here in the US. “But Rekha doesn’t keep things traditional. She mixes bhangra with hip-hop, dancehall, and all kinds of beats.” If you missed the Smithsonian’s first Asia After Dark featuring DJ Rekha, here’s your last chance to get down with her beats this summer.

Is fun on your radar? If you make fun a top priority, you will, miraculously, find your life more fulfilling.

June 15 at 11:35 am

Please don’t go for the ties, colognes, mugs and t-shirts for Father’s Day. These are nice thoughts that should be kept as thoughts. Let’s put the fun back in Father’s Day and celebrate!

Nothing says love more than showing or sharing in their interests. Here are few suggestions for upcoming events worth exploring. Some of these events are offered in multiple cities or if your budget and schedule permit, consider planning a trip around it this summer! Did somebody say Family Road Trip?!!! Remember those?

Gifted Parent: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Fun

June 10 at 9:00 am

By Archana Jaiswal

You’ve probably heard of the term “gifted child.” It’s possible that behind every gifted child there is a gifted parent. It’s possible. It’s also possible that there may be gifted parents who don’t have gifted children. We rarely see or hear the term “gifted parent.” More likely, you’ve heard of “super moms” and “super dads.” These super parents are usually recognized for their ability to juggle life efficiently in multiple orbits including involvement in their children’s many extra-curricular activities, all at once. They should be applauded for their herculean feats. But these “super” moms and dads are not necessarily also gifted parents. Read More

Spring Fever

April 3 at 1:14 am

It’s opening week of baseball season and mother nature is finally ready to play ball with Spring in the air! It has been a particularly long winter for those of you sequestered by the Norovirus. We hope you’re ready to Spring into action for some fun and smell the roses (well, Cherry blossoms). Good news. The National Park Service has determined April 3-6 as the Peak Bloom period for Cherry Blossoms in 2013. If these weren’t reason enough to go out and play, April is National Kite Month! Read More

March Madness

March 12 at 3:30 pm

Get caught up in March Madness! We’re not just talking basketball here. In our last post called “Enough With P Envy” we talked about how we sometimes stand in our own way of having fun. That was a first, major step. In order to go forward we have to go back, (of course). So, going back to P Envy (Party Envy, Personality Envy, Perceived Life Envy of others), most likely we developed P Envy when we stopped having fun. Whether it’s stress and depressive feelings related to work, parenting, financial hardship, caregiving, issues with weight, aging, or a little bit of everything, guess what these life changing and challenging conditions aren’t going anywhere. It’s life, it’s happening. So, how does one balance life happening with wanting to have a life? Read More
