Dad Jokes & Father's Day Gifts

This Sunday, June 18th is Father's Day. While there isn't quite the same level of gift and card-purchasing panic leading up to the day as on Mother's Day weekend, the holiday still offers a great opportunity to show our dads and father figures that they are loved and appreciated.

Our population spends more than 90% of their time indoors, leading a sedentary, disconnected, unhealthy, and unnatural lifestyle.

These figures are sobering, but there is good news, and it's right outside your door.
