Weekend Roundup-Dad’s Day Edition

by RC on June 15, 2008

Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers out there. If you are lucky enough to still have your father in your life, make sure to tell him how much you appreciate him today. I am fortunate enough to still be able to spend time with my dad, as well as one of my grandfathers, so we will spending the day with family.

My Dad lives several states away now, but I was just visiting with him last week, which was nice. I’ll give him a call later today. :)

Thanks for the mention.

Thanks for the link on my coupon post!

Four carnivals in one week? That’s a pretty good number. The most I’ve hit in one week is three.

@Patrick- I feel lucky to have my parents living close- its good you got to visit your Dad recently.

@Monroe- Thanks, I think 4 is about the max. I have hit.

@David- The green looks good, great site- I have thought of changing my color to a dark green or blue, but i know nothing about CSS so it will probably be red for a while!
