Geek Dad Breakfasts

Wednesday, June 24th, 2009

Over on Twitter, there was a flurry of activity today around a rather neat idea called Geek Dad Breakfasts. A nice idea for a Saturday morning meetup of like-minded fathers.

Like all good ideas it boils down to something simple: get kids and dads out from under partner’s nose on Saturday morning (allowing for much needed sleep), meet local dads with similar interests and eat some fried food. Sounds grand to me!

Show your interest and support by twittering (if you use such) the first three characters of your postcode and the #gdbf (see who else is interested here, I imagine more complicated geolocation shenanigans is on the way).

Kudos should go to Mike Ellis for conceiving the idea. Let’s see where it goes!

A competition for you all

Friday, June 12th, 2009

Nina from Bizymoms dropped me a line about a Father’s Day competition that may be of interest.

Bizymoms.com caters not only to moms but dads too! So to show our love for all you dads out there we are launching a funny-fun Fathers Day special contest! Craziest tie contest!

We’ll have two winners. Each of our winners will receive $50, an autographed copy of Dr Gary Chapman’s new book, “Love is a Verb”.
