My 5 year old daughter learning a little automotive knowledge. Yes, I know you should mark your rods, but we are tearing down to the block, and getting all new guts. P.S. That is mostly built up old mud on her hands. We scrubbed her down about twenty minutes after this.

Queensland, Australia cafe owner, Jessica-Anne Allen, has gotten praise recently for standing up for a woman breast feeding her child in the cafe. She told the Brisbane Times that when a man asked her to confront a customer about covering up while feeding her baby she responded by telling him that they "would never ask a mother to cover up when she is feeding her child" at her breast feeding friendly business.  

Allen asked the man to leave when he mentioned that he did say something to the woman about covering up while feeding her baby. Since then she has reiterated her support of mothers on the cafe's Facebook page and received support from many people, especially mothers, in her community.

This is certainly a dance that they will never forget, mainly because there’s hardly any dancing involved.

Jim Mickunas wanted to do something special for his daughter Kandice on her wedding day, so he turned their father/daughter dance into a game of catch.

“My daughter has always found her own path,” he writes in the video’s caption, adding that she played a lot of sports as a kid. “I could not imagine having a traditional father daughter dance with her. That is not what we were or are. So I came up with this.”

The moment starts out as you might expect, with the two on the dance floor and Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” playing in the background.

But then her dad stops away as a man hands them both baseball gloves and the music suddenly changes to John Fogerty’s “Centerfield.”

And with that move Jim becomes MVP and father of the year.

He also eventually subs in his new son-in-law.

“I had no idea he had it planned,” Kandice said. “Made me tear up when he handed the glove to my husband.”

A mother in India recently placed a matrimonial ad in the paper for her adult, gay son. It might seem like it would only be a little embarrassing for 36 year old activist Harish Iyer to have his mom get involved in his love life but it's actually groundbreaking. It is thought to be the first same-sex dating ad placed in an Indian newspaper. In fact many papers refused to publish it.

Iyer told the Times of India that they've gotten a few responses so far but he plans on taking his time to decide on the right man.
