Looking for Dads & Songwriters

I'm going to put a real effort into finding a group of full-time dads in the area. I've been talking about doing this for quite some time, and I've just never actually put any effort into it, so I haven't found anyone. I've really enjoyed the time that I've spent with the Mothering Arts Moms, but I think some time spent with other dads would be good for me.

I'd really like to find at least two other dads who might want to play basketball with me sometime. We could all go, and one could play with the babies/children while the others play, and then we'd switch off. It would be great to get the chance to get out and play some basketball, even better if it was with someone that I had some things in common with (like, perhaps, a near-total lack of basketball skill).

I've also started the process of trying another songwriter. I'm looking for someone that could work through a book that I found at the library that's filled with exersises for songwriters, or more specifically, lyric writers. I'd like to find someone that's at just about my skill level, and we could critique each other's lyrics, and help make each other better. I'm thinking that it would be better if it was someone that I didn't know personally (we'd exchange lyrics over email), because then there wouldn't be any worries about offending a good friend.

I sent a message out to a yahoo group that I'm in (not a songwriter's group), but no one answered. I'm gonna do some google searching today to see if I can track a potential candidate down.

Wow, wouldn't it be great if I found a songwriting full-time dad?! I hadn't thought of that. That would be crazy.
