Want to know more about me? First, here's my baby girl, Blanca. She's 11
And here's my baby boy, Jax - a black lab/boxer mix who was left to die near the Santa Ana River. My wife and I adopted him from the Humane Society of San Bernardino Valley weeks after Caltrans workers found him wrapped in a blanket.
He's 5, and he's a strapping 85 pounds! A far cry from the 16-pounds when we first brought him home (below)
And here's my wife Sarah and my niece Alexis chillin' at a hockey game
BTW, the wife is on the left, and the 18-year-old niece in on the right
Also, here's pictures of my other niece, Kayla!!
And here she is sporting her Seattle Sounders soccer jersey...
And here she is with her favorite UNCLE!
Are you KIDDING me??
I got her to stop crying by giving her a jerky treat!
Ready my Q&A
OLD SCHOOL PHOTO!
1990 - my BFF Eric and I honor our then-favorite beverage, JOLT COLA, which would get us through college - me at Cal State San Bernardino, and he at UC San Diego.
Some of you may be asking, "Where's Evelyn in that photo?" I'm thinking the then 8-year-old was hanging with her parents.

Local teacher placed on leave
3rd grade teacher reportedly 'blasts' students
Did a local teacher go too far?
A third grade teacher at Henry Elementary School was put on administrative leave after the grandmother of one of his students secretly recorded him berating the students over not knowing the subject and predicate of a sentence, or how to indent a paragraph.
The San Bernardino Sun posted a four-minute segment of the six-hour recording. Feel free to give it a listen, and ask yourself if he deserved to be placed on leave.
Popester's Thought: I remember interrupting my 4th grade teacher with a lame joke - which got some of my fellow students to giggle. The teacher - Mrs. Sakamoto - put me on blast, telling me, "You're not funny at all, Mr. Pope. If you're gonna interrupt this class with stupid jokes, then perhaps you should stay after class and work on your material."
I decided right then and there, that if I was going to interrupt anymore teachers, I had to come strong and bring the funny! And that's how, byt the time I made it to Upland High School, I was performing two shows daily.
So, THANKS to my 4th grade teacher for putting me on blast in front of the kids!!
