After hearing a sermon on Mother’s day 1910, Sonora Smart Dodd suggested to her Spokane pastor there should be a day for fathers.  There was, on June 19.  After decades of her promotional effort, observance became routine.

In 1966, President Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring fathers, and in 1972 observing Father’s Day on the third Sunday in June became a national law.

I am a father, and I can speak with authority on this subject.  On Father’s Day, a hug or a phone call is much more appreciated than the gift of a tie or shirt.

If there is a father in your life, either your own or a friend’s, then you should call them up or reach out to hug them.

Accounting Today does a lot of things really well, and has for a long time.  I’m adding using its Facebook page to the list.  It is now in the midst of its first contest for Accountant of the Month.  To qualify, you must be the opposite of boring.  As I am uber boring, and aspire to ascend to the level of dull, I shouldn’t enter.  But who knows?  This might be your thing.

First, we’ll take a look at the art:

There are two links to bookmark:

The prizes are cool.  If you win, Accounting Today will give you 15 seconds of fame, a cool caricature, a T-shirt, and free entry to a conference.

I really want the caricature.  What do you think?  Am I cool enough to enter and win the contest some month?

Voting for June’s entries is open until June 26, 2012, and voting has begun.  You will find among the entries:

I’m not going to vote for any of the men dressed in business attire and hawking their professional services.  They are dull and boring.

Vote from the contest page.
