Father's Day is the worst. Every year, it's the same lame presents. Come on, you know what I am talking about! If I never see another tie, cologne, BBQ set, belt, wallet socks, underwear, shirt, sweater or lame ass book, I will die happy. Listen up, guys and let me know if you agree with me.

8 Great Gifts For Dads For Father's Day 2013 And Beyond

Father's Day.  When you get to my father's age, it becomes quite difficult to find something original as a gift.  Ties, while quite nice, are well-overplayed and no longer an option.  Take him out to lunch?  Sure... but again, not the most original of ideas.  Movies are a good idea... but unless it's a drafthouse, it's really not that special.

Not Guilty... By Reason Of 'To-Go Ware Utensil Sets'

A danish, a yogurt, lunch... to go.  They all come with plastic knives, spoons, and forks. We accept them, but always with that little nudge in our minds and that pang of guilt.  I've actually been saving the plastic throw-aways, washing them, and re-using them.  No more guilt for me though - I just received a set of RePEaT To-Go Ware Utensils as a thank you gift, and I'm never going to set my teeth on another throw-away-and-destroy-the-earth plastic utensil again.

Father’s Day Gifts - Five Kid's Toys that Dad Would Love for Father’s Day


Is anyone else amazed by the toys that are out there? Sometimes I look at the toys and ask myself, is this really for kids?

When I had my first child, I saw the mini motorized cars for kids. I immediately wanted one. To tell the truth, sometimes my children end up with certain toys because I want it so badly (yes, my sons have a mini motorized fire truck). Is this wrong? I don’t think so.
