What are dads up to in 2016? Well, first of all, they’re stacking Cheerios on their babies!
Patrick Quinn is the founder of Life of Dad, a social network just for dads. One day he put a Cheerio on his three-week-old son Maxton’s nose, and a hot new fad was born. So far, the record for Cheerio stacking by a dad on his baby is 16, and only two dads have met that goal so far.
“That seems to be the Everest of Cheerio stacking,” says Patrick, who hasn’t gotten that far yet. “I don’t even know how it’s possible.”
C’mon, Patrick. It’s dads we’re talking about. Happy Father’s Day to all dads everywhere!
Australian Aboriginal artist Loongkoonan was born in a time and place where births of native people were not recorded, but estimates she was born somewhere around the year 1910, which makes her 105 years old or so. She took up painting in her 90s as a way to keep busy!
Her art is inspired by her Aboriginal upbringing and the many years she spent exploring her country on foot. Traditional Aboriginal art uses dots of paint to record memories and knowledge.
Loongkoonan has created around 380 works, using acrylic paints on canvas and linen, during her career and shows no signs of slowing down. Bringing beauty and joy into the world is an ageless pursuit!
