    In honor of Father's Day here in the USA I thought this week's question should be about dad. So what is the best or most important thing you learned from your father?


    I'm the youngest in my family and am the only boy, so my father and I are pretty close. He was active in my raising and wanted very much to prepare me for life. Besides my spiritual foundation, I think the most valuable lesson my dad taught me was to work hard and play hard. He made me get a job when I young and through this I learned the importance of developing a good work ethic. We spent a lot of time doing fun things together like camping, fishing, playing sports, etc. and through this I learned that recreation and family time is extremely valuable. Now that I have kids of my own I try my best to teach these same lessons.

    Smoking 60 a day and drinking vodka every night gives you heart problems.

    - Never expect anyone to support you, so when someone does, love them for it.

    I guess I sort of learnt it the hard way.

    He taught me how to wallpaper a wall.

    The secret is the first time you do it to make a complete pigs ear of it, and then your wife will insist she does it every time from then on in.

    Pa Cake = occasional genius.

    A hell of a lot. Work hard, be a good bloke, marry a good woman and have a good life.

    Drinking a 1/2 bottle of vodka + Swallowing a bottle of Xanax = Bad

    Don't worry he lived. Such fond memories of me and my Dad:rolleyes:
