And here we are! Happy Father's Day, everyone!   We've had quite a rollercoaster ride of patriarchal point winning, and now it's time to round things out with one last Father's Day Badge-a-Thon badge.   Firstly, of course, you need to be proudly sporting the previous days' badges before you can land this one: Day One: June 13th - Father's Day Badge-a-Thon: Shed Dweller Day Two: June 14th - Father's Day Badge-a-Thon: Boys' Toys Day Three: June 15th - Father's Day Badge-a-Thon: DIY ...
Adaptability is the cornerstone of fatherhood. Well, it probably should be. Whether it is or not, I'll leave for mothers and partners to decide upon!   But, in an effort to embrace this notion, today's Father's Day badge has taken a twist. I've adjusted it in accord with some excellent suggestions you guys about creating projects with the kids.   "Did anyone else see the title and expect that it'd be "what toys have you made for your boys (or girls)". That's what being a dad's really ...
According to my dad, there's a correct tool for every job. And it's called a hammer.   It's a life lesson that's always stuck with me and has helped me get through a great many difficulties in my days as an engineer, a maker and a DIY desperado. So as we plummet deeper and deeper into our Father's Day Badge-a-Thon rabbit hole, we're now looking at ways that dads can pass along their lifetime of invaluable knowledge and wisdom as their kids blossom into dedicated hammer-wielders themselves. ...
What-o chaps! Splendid day, what?   Well, as you know it'll be Father's Day shortly, which is rather splendid, and we're clapping politely in anticipation of the grand show by handing out a week's worth of exclusive Father's Day badges for all you smashing chaps.   Ah yes, chaps! Just what is a chap? According to Mr. B: "A proper chap knows exactly where it's at. A proper chap is a rogue, in well-heeled brogues, and knows exactly when it's right to wear a hat.   "He wears it o ...
The shed is the universal domain of the dad. This probably isn't news to you.   But that's nothing to do with the shed itself. What draws the old man to the garden construct is the solitude it promises (aside from the colony of spiders, but their company is necessary to facilitate the absence of other humans), and the tools and toys he can tinker with therein.   So to kick off our week's worth of exclusive Father's Day badges, I'd like you to post a comment below, with an accompanyin ...
Admittedly, I don't have any kids, but my dad always said that the first 20 years are the worst. And he should know.   June 19th marks Father's Day, in most parts of the world, so we thought it'd be fun to celebrate the occasion with a week's worth of exclusive Dad's Day badges!   You don't have to be a dad to join in, of course, or even be a bloke. We all have (or have had) fathers, or at the least some manner of father figure, so the week's antics are for anyone and everyone who ...
