Owen Williams recently got an unusual visit that resulted in a lot of unexpected online attention. On Twitter, he went on to share his feelings about his neighbor Ken and the best way to honor his wishes.
Steve Irwin was undoubtedly one of the greatest conservationists. From his daring stunts to his incredible tv shows, we have all admired Steve for the kind of person he was. Ever since the start of his Tv Show, The Crocodile Hunter, from time to time we got to see his adorable little daughter, Bindi Irwin. After the tragic demise of her father, Bindi decided to invest all her time into doing what her father did best. Besides, the love and passion for wildlife animals runs in her family. To this day, Bindi still lives and works at the Zoo in Australia. The Irwin family built this Zoo back in the 1970's and they have been running it since. Now, with the help of her mother and brother, Bindi takes care of the Zoo and does everything within her reach to make sure that her Father's great legacy always remains. We have compiled some of her tweets with adventures from the zoo.
Bond with your kids, dads, because they're hair today and gone tomorrow.
Redditor MashedPotatoh, a single dad in Daytona, Florida, shared his story of helping dads connect with their daughters in a post where the title says it all.
"I created a Dads and Daughters hair class to help other fathers learn about doing hair. We had a small class full of dads that learned basic brushing, ponytails, braids and buns. The turnout was great! I'm so proud of these dads for stepping up and building a better bond with their daughters."
The dedicated dad is calling his class Daddy Daughter Hair Factory and it received a whole lot of love from the Reddit community.
He proceeded to provide a lot more information by answering questions in the comments.
I decided to put this class together after multiple requests from friends to teach them how to do hairstyles. I'm a single father and my daughter loves challenging me with new styles. It was great to share what I have learned over the years.
...In tonight's class we went over the basics. I taught them how to comb out tangles and do some basic styles. I had the daughter's talk about their favorite styles and we also discussed scalp sensitivity. My daughter and i were trying to think of a way to make it more exciting for the girls involved. We were considering making bracelets by braiding, since most of the dads wanted to sharpen their braiding technique.
He said the dad turnout was really varied, with different expectations and different backgrounds.
I asked the dads what they did for work, and it was an interesting bunch. We had a prison guard, mechanic, general contractor, ATT tech, Apple tech, healthcare recruiter and a carpenter. Definitely out of their element but they were all excited to learn. It was beautiful.
...Two of the dads learned how to do buns because their daughters are in dance class, and they were excited to learn how easy it was with the right hair pin. I know they are going to appreciate it.
MashedPotatoh has been thrilled with the response and just wants to see greater relationships between fathers and their daughters.
I would love to see it become more popular. I know many girls that grew up with close relationships with their fathers, and they tend to be so well rounded. They usually comment on my relationship with my daughter and how much their dad means to them. I think it is a special bond for girls and it guides them to make better choices later in life with who they choose to be with.
...It was the first class, kind of put together to get a feel for what will be needed for future class. I'm planning on doing this once a month at the hair academy and another one at the community center. The idea is to have a small group of dads and help them with their hair. Most of them are married and doing this to help around the house, but there are a few single dads like myself that want to learn more.
...I have funding for future class and to start a class for woman [sic]. I have dads looking to start groups in their area. I have two scheduled radio interviews. It's all been positive. It's not even about the hair, it's about the bond, it's about coming together and sharpening our skills. I'm excited to inspire. I am very happy because if this. Thank you and everyone on this group for always being kind. It means so much.
He has set up a Twitter account and plans to spread the word there and on Facebook.
A New Zealand father didn't want his daughter to be self conscious of her cochlear implant — so he got a tattoo of one for himself.
Alistair Campbell's daughter six-year-old daughter Char
Mr Campbell, who had no other tattoos, said he wanted to do it to show her that he could go through a little bit of pain for her too.
"My love for her really," he said. "Hey my hair can grow back."
Mr Campbell had shaved his head completely to get the tattoo done but said he would be letting his hair grow back.
He'd shave it off again and show off the tattoo at "special occasions," or if Charlotte wanted to see it.
The article said Mrs. Campbell's mother had a cochlear implant and her son, Lewis, 8, wore hearing aids so it wasn't a big surprise when Charlotte needed one.
The tattoo has not only help out his daughter, but also drawn a great deal of attention to the Hear 4 Kidz Trust of which the Campbell family is a part.
You might as well just stop trying, other dads, the Father of the Year has been decided.
That was a joke. Never stop trying to be a good father, you dolts.
Mackelmore hasn't released a song in three years, instead choosing to take time off to probably go thrift shopping.
While he recently opened up about his experience relapsing on drugs, he saved his biggest news for Aug. 5, when he released his new single featuring none other than Ed Sheeran.
(Ed Sheeran just seems to be everywhere these days.)
Mackelmore explained the meaning behind the song and what brought him back to the studio in greater depth on his Instagram.
When you try to escape yourself, life has an interesting way of creating situations that force you to come back. To look at who you are. This is why "Growing up" felt like the right song to re-emerge with. It's where I've been the last year, through all the ups and downs. We didn't want to do a big campaign or anything over the top with this. We just wanted to put out good music, directly to the people that have been here since the beginning. Thank you for your patience. Hope you enjoy.
And if you're wondering…
Our daughter, Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty was born 2 months ago on May 29th. There is nothing like the joy and happiness that comes from bringing a baby into this universe. She has filled my heart in ways that I never knew were possible. She is the love of my life. This song is for her.

Well, this is one way to influence your kid's style of fashion. A few weeks ago, Scott Mackintosh, a father of seven children from Utah, donned a pair of disturbingly short shorts in order to teach his daughter a lesson about dressing appropriately, only to have photographs of his absurd outfit posted on her Tumblr blog shortly after. The post has since reached over 133,000 notes, prompting Mackintosh to set the record straight by writing a blog post and even appearing in a segment on the local news station KSL.
