    I never realized until just now that Mexico is the only nation whose country code is also a DNS record type.

    Taking him out to 'the keg' for any canadians that know of it. It's a nice steak house a few blocks away that he loves :)

    Here is my father's day story.

    My father is deceased. My father-in-law is a nearly-80-year old and is crazy about big band music (1920s-50s in the US). He visits his mother's grave every weekend. One day he takes a different route through the cemetery and comes across a grave of a big band singer:

    http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=pv&GRid=47012866&PIpi=25100396

    He starts asking around and no one has any idea about this singer. He goes to the library to look her up and can't find any info. He asks at record shops. No one has heard of her.

    He's never used a computer in his life. At a recent family event he mentioned this obsession, which he's been working on for months. I do a search and find she was on one record in the 1940s with an obscure orchestra. The label is out of stock! So now this becomes my obsession and I search/query/bid for a while until I finally get a copy.

    So that will be my father's day present. He is going to flip out.

  • Mine is getting two weetabix instead of one and I've promised to lay off the rubber hose.

  • @Jack in the UK we beat old people with lengths of rubber hose. Keeps them in line.

  • @Jack obviously I was j/k but seriously? With all the terrible stories about care in nursing homes etc.?

    We? That sounds awful like some sort of odd Northern tradition. Wouldn't be surprised, sigh northerners, northerners, northerners..

    It could also be something chavs do, I <3 chavs, then again they wouldn't know how to spell either so meh..

    I'm confused.

    EDIT: LOL, yeah, nursing homes are terrible to send your old people to, especially here in the UK..

    My daughter is getting me a front mount bike seat for father's day. I asked for tickets to see Mike Birbiglia but changed my mind after we ordered pizza the other night and I was reminded how good junk food tastes. :X

    Haha, great Northern values, just epitomizes the very defenition that I have in my head of Northerners. @Daniel is a Southerner but lives in Sussex not Essex afaik.

  • Please do not confuse me with them looneys from Essex.

    Oy! Not all of Essex is like you think it is, TOWIE, the only way is Essex and all that crap is not representative of Essex :(
