Happy Father’s Day!

On this day that celebrates Dads I thought I would share a few quotes from Fathers about being a great Father.

Thoughts From Fathers on Being a Great Father:

The quality of a father can be seen in the goals, dreams and aspirations he sets not only for himself, but for his family.  Reed Markham

I’m a father; that’s what matters most. Nothing matters more. Gordon Brown

To me, having kids is the ultimate job in life. I want to be most successful at being a good father. Nick Lachey

I would say my greatest achievement in life right now – my greatest achievement period is – and I’m still trying to achieve it – is to be a wonderful father to my kids. Bo Jackson

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father. Frank Abagnale

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you wonderful ladies out there!! Hope you have a fun and relaxing day doing exactly what makes you happy.

Last year I posted a couple of articles on Moms – both were poignant and sentimental. Mom was about the strong women who played a huge role in my life and Happy Mother’s Day! had some heartfelt poems about Moms.

This year I thought I would keep it lighthearted and share with you four cartoons about Moms. I bought this boxed set of greeting cards a while back, which had cartoons about Moms from The New Yorker magazine, and they are very funny. Enjoy!

Which restaurant can they make reservations at for dinner? Every year I tell them the same ten things.  This is what I want for Mother’s Day. Continue reading What I Want For Mother’s Day

After days and weeks of solid good rain here in Northern California, we finally see some sunshine 😊🌞.  It seriously feels like spring – Not! Birds are chirping as if it is spring, little do they know that rain and cool temperatures are coming back very soon – within a few days 🌧.

But as far as celebrating weather goes, it is the perfect warm weekend here to celebrate a farming harvest festival called Shankranthi which is observed all over India on January 14th. Continue reading Celebrating the Indian Harvest Festival of Shankranthi
