How To Get From Great Dad To Super Dad

I Am A Man
I am a man.

1. Put your children’s  interests first, always.

If you have some habits that are not conducive to your good health, continuing to engage in them is not in the best interest of your children.
.
2. Protect Your Family

This in one of the main responsibilities of being a Dad. Start with safety.

Teach them good safety habits, and set a good example by using your seatbelt, school them on respecting fire and water, and the perils of drug and alcohol.

Protect them financially by obtaining and maintaining health and dental benefits. Never hand Mom out to dry.

3. Spend Ample Time With Your Children

We all come home from work tired and looking to relax. And no one expects you to head  out to the backyard or park for a game of touch football or hide and seek.

But you can have dinner together and discuss their day.

Or watch a family TV show together.

Ask to see or help them with homework.

Or just have talk hour. Be sure and tell them about your day (kids find some of the mundane characters and situations you encounter amusing). Make Thursday night Pizza night (Mom will love this too) Have pizza delivered, pop in a movie and enjoy. Even better go out for pizza….if it’s nice weather and the restaurant is close, walk together.

If you are not in the same household, you can still have quality time outside of the prearranged visits.

Don’t Give Him Too Much Credit Too Soon ‹ Reader — WordPress.com

There’s this thing I do.

When I met a man I have a wild connection with, and hope and desire and romanticism fly’s—I sometimes in my excitement, fall into fantasy.Fantasy of what our dogs’ name will be, how he will look chopping wood in a flannel shirt at my cabin–where we will own our vacation home in Costa Rica.Yeah—that thing.

This is what I call going into “fantasy”.It is when we project all the ideals and things we desire in a partner and a relationship onto a person, prematurely.

Surviving the Long Haul — The Trials and Tribulations of Women in The Trucking Industry

choosing-a-male-profession-the-female-truck-drivers-of-the-road-4402_2

Trucks move some 9.2 billion tons of freight annually in the United States, according to the industry’s trade group, the American Trucking Associations. That’s nearly 70 percent of the country’s total freight tonnage, making the trucking industry a critical backbone of American business, industry, and infrastructure. [SOURCE]

Truckers deliver the parts for your car, the merchandise that sits on your grocery store’s shelves, the food that’s on your plate at a restaurant, and, increasingly, the stuff you ordered online.

A report released earlier this year by the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics reported that, in seasonally adjusted terms, trucks carried 36 percent more freight this March than they did in March 2000.

The people driving those trucks, however, are largely invisible to us. The few women in trucking—which is currently around 95 percent male, according to industry estimates—in particular, tell a dark story about what goes on.

Many of them describe a poisonous atmosphere where they’re subjected to on-the-job sexual harassment ranging from catcalling to rape.

A review of legal documents, as well as interviews with dozens of drivers, lawyers, and industry experts, reveals a broken structure of accountability that creates few incentives for taking their claims seriously and, in many cases, leaves women in danger.

This story at Mary Review is a long read albeit an appalling read – it’s a good read about an industry that’s slow to embrace women for their skills because they can’t ignore the endowments of their gender. Get the full read here.–>Surviving the Long Haul — Mary Review

What Happens To A Dead Man’s Sperm? – Digg

There is a man waiting for the doctor and his time is running out. It is late evening, just over an hour after the doctor first groped for his ringing phone.

“Can you help us?” the woman on the other end had asked, her voice breaking.

Now, preparing for the procedure, the doctor is alert. He moves quickly. He scrubs his hands and arms with soap and snaps on his gloves. His assistant clinks down sterilized instruments and fluid-filled containers onto a stainless steel table. The walls are cinder block, painted a pale yellow. The air is cool and heavy with the scent of disinfectant.

The doctor sits over the patient ready to perform the surgery. He pauses, fixing a picture in his mind, then slices through the skin until he can see the organ’s outer layers. It glistens, milky white and veiny. The doctor cuts off a spongy piece and drops it into a vial. His assistant whisks it away.

Having verified that the procedure was a success, the doctor carefully sutures the patient back up. The patient remains still. The room is quiet. There is no beeping monitor or IV drip. No one checks the patient’s vitals.

He has been given no pain relief.

The patient is dead.

“Let’s Straighten It Out” was the brainchild of the late Benny Latimore. The song zeros in on the core adhesive  necessary to hold a relationship together- Communication.

Latimore collaborated with the sultry R&B songstress Gwen Mccrae to offer up even more dynamic and diversified versions of his message.

Gwen seasoned the hit with her own spices.

“You need to just go down to the store…and let’s  go  and buy us a bottle of Remy Martin, a bottle of gin, or some beer or six pack and come back home and sit down to the table…” -Gwen Mccrae live .

Here’s the bass laden , straight at you gritty message that beat out Bigg Robb for this week’s video experience of the week.

Now Bigg Robbs version of Latimore’s simplict message on communication was no slouch. He’s good .. real good and I’m smitten to da floor behind the lovely womanin his vid but votes can’t be argued with. Gwen took him down – and Gwen well she can sing to me anytime and I’m hers.

Here’s Big Robb

“So you eating breakfast by yourself this morning?”

“The foods in there on the stove .”

“Sometimes you can have problems  in your relationship. Money won’t fix it. Sex won’t fix  it.” Only  thing that can help you can get on the right track is some good prayer and a whole lot of communication.”
