My Dad was a do-it-yourself type and  I was his sidekick.  We had matching overalls. It never entered his mind that I was a girl and girls aren't supposed to hang dry wall because we certainly did hang dry wall and laid concrete too!  Daddy taught me the names of all his tools and what they were used for.  There was nothing he didn't think I could do so I thought there was nothing I couldn't do.  If Daddy was fishing or hunting, so was I.  

Thank you Daddy wherever you are....
Strong fathers, strong daughters.



"And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."
Ephesians 6:4

On July 19, 1910, the governor of the U.S. state of Washington proclaimed the nation’s first “Father’s Day.” However, it was not until 1972, 58 years after President Woodrow Wilson made Mother’s Day official, that the day became a nationwide holiday in the United States.

A good father  is one of the most unsung,
unpraised, unnoticed,  and yet one of
the most  valuable assets in our society.
~*~ Billy Graham


Whatever you do, don’t blink or you will miss something! 
I’ll bet you watch this more than once.  And one time with your cursor on the pause symbol so you can see what you missed because you blinked.

The greatest thing a father can do for his daughter is to love their mother.  --D.S.Dalton

"What is a Father"
-- written by radio legend Paul Harvey

A father is a thing that is forced to endure childbirth, without an anesthetic. A father is a thing that growls when it feels good–and laughs loud when it’s scared half to death. A father never feels entirely worthy of worship in his child’s eyes. He never is quite the hero his daughter thinks, never quite the man his son believes him to be. This worries him, sometimes, so he works too hard to try and smooth the rough places in the road for those of his own who will follow him.
A father is a thing that gets very angry when school grades aren’t as good as he thinks they should be. He scolds his son although he knows it’s the teacher’s fault.
Fathers grow old faster than other people. And while mothers can cry where it shows, fathers stand there and beam outside–and die inside. Fathers have very stout hearts, so they have to be broken sometimes or no one would know what is inside.
Fathers give daughters away to other men who aren’t nearly good enough so they can have grandchildren who are smarter than anybody’s. Fathers fight dragons almost daily. They hurry away from the breakfast table, off to the arena which is sometimes called an office or a workshop – where they tackle the dragon with three heads: Weariness, Work and Monotony. Knights in shining armor.
Fathers make bets with insurance companies about who will live the longest. Though they know the odds, they keep right on betting. Even as the odds get higher and higher, they keep right on betting more and more. And one day they lose.
But fathers enjoy an earthly immortality and the bet is paid off to the part of him he leaves behind. I don’t know where fathers go when they die. But I have an idea that after a good rest, he won’t be happy unless there is work to do. He won’t just sit on a cloud and wait for the girl he’s loved and the children she bore. He’ll be busy there, too – oiling the gates, smoothing the way.

Look on the opposite side of the melon -- NOT the side where the stem grows.
You will see a circle. 

The larger circles are females and
the smaller ones are males.
The females are the sweeter of the melons. (Of Course!)

Does Dad love Chili's?

These Chiles? Nothing to Fear -


The Scoville rating is determined by how much sugar syrup it takes in order to completely lose the heat of a pepper. India's Defense Research Laboratory, (IDRL) rated the Bhut Jolokia pepper with 1,041,427 Scoville heat units (SHU), which beat the Red Savina pepper as the hottest pepper. The climate in which the pepper is grown plays a huge role in the heat intensity of the pepper. To put heat intensity of the Bhut Jolokia pepper into perspective, Bell peppers have a 0 SHU rating, Jalapenos have a 3,000 to 6,000 SHU rating, Habaneros have a 300,000 SHU rating. With the Bhut Jolokia pepper's 1,000,000 SHU rating, you can see how the pepper can be recorded as the world's hottest chili pepper.
(Note:  There has been much volitility in the hot pepper business -- recently, the Carolina Reaper has been graded at 2,200,000 SHU highest heat level, and was just named the world's hottest pepper by the Guiness World Records.  Another very hot pepper has also appeared -- the Trinidad Scorpion Moruga Blend (Moruga Scorpion) rated at 2,009,231 SHU highest heat level -- the war is on -- expect even hotter peppers to be breed soon).

Newborn Quadruplets Think Their Dad Is Hilarious - Funny Videos at Videobash

If you gave your Dad a vacuum cleaner for Father's Day, would he know how to use?

"Oh, No!" he gasped as he surveyed the disaster before him.  Never in his 40 years of life had he seen anything like it.  How anyone could have survived he did not know.  He could only hope that somewhere amid the overwhelming destruction he would find his 16-year-old son.  Only the slim hope of finding Danny kept him from turning and fleeing the scene.  He took a deep breath and proceeded.  Walking was virtually impossible with so many things strewn across his path.  He moved ahead slowly.  "Danny!  Danny!" he whispered to himself.  He tripped and almost fell several times.  He heard someone, or something, move.  At least he thought he did.  Perhaps, he was just hoping he did.  He shook his head and felt his gut tighten.  He couldn't understand how this could have happened.  There was some light but not enough to see very much.  Something cold and wet brushed against his hand.  He jerked it away.  In desperation, he took another step then cried out, "Danny!" From a nearby pile of unidentified material, he heard his son.  "Yes, Dad," he said, in a voice so weak it could hardly be heard.  "It's time to get up and get ready for school," the man sighed.  "And, for heaven's sake, clean up this room!"

Read this before you make fun of dear old Dad
Older people do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe.

Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full up, so to do humans take longer to access information, it has been suggested.

Researchers say this slowing down it is not the same as cognitive decline.

“The human brain works slower in old age,” said Dr. Michael Ramscar, “but only because we have stored more information over time

“The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more.”

How Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord Ps33:12

Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”

Diamond Rio: In God We Still Trust -

"If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under."- Ronald Reagan

All this time, I thought this was Billy Graham's prayer.  It isn't.
Prayer for Our Nation

'Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your Forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word Says, 'Woe to those who call evil good,' but that is exactly what we have Done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We Have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded Laziness and called it welfare. We have killed our unborn and called it Choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable... We have Neglected to discipline our children and called it building self esteem. We Have abused power and called it politics. We have coveted our neighbor's Possessions and called it ambition. We have polluted the air with profanity And pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the Time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search Us, Oh God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from sin and Set us free.
In Jesus name, amen!' With the Lord's help, may this prayer sweep over our nation and Wholeheartedly become our desire so that we once again can be called 'One Nation under God!'
