I pray you all enjoy your Father's Day weekend
and these new TV Movies!

I hope many of you will have the opportunity to spend time with your Father, as I will be enjoying and treasuring the day with my precious Daddy!

God's Blessings to You All!


  1. I miss not being able to send my Father a "Father's Day Card"! Father in Heaven says, "I will be a Father to the Fatherless" and He has!! Happy Father's Day, out there, to all the Dad's and happy viewing this weekend!!

    1. That was beautifully said, Linda. I pray you will be filled with many treasured memories this weekend. God bless you, Honey!!

  2. Another great Hallmark lineup this weekend, if only we can get our dads to give up the remote. Yeah, right. That's why I'm thankful for re-air dates!!!!!!

  3. Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers out there who visit here at Net's site. You are a role model for your children and they look up to you. I will be visiting my father, but I got this update this morning and set the DVR. Now, unless we have a power failure, I'm all set! You don't know how much this helps to keep my life organized, okay it's mostly organized chaos, but I'm still organized --- thanks to you!

    1. From one of the dads out here who regularly visits this site -- because I love Christmas and everything it represents (most importantly being our Lords' birthday) -- thank you Marie for your kind words to all dads. I have always remembered that while what you tell your children is important, there is no greater influence on them than the life you lead!

  4. Happy Father's Day weekend everyone! Life with Father is one of my all time classic favorites. I'll try to get a chance to watch some of it.

  5. Loved this movie but the wedding was very short. Less than 2 minutes of a 2 hour movie. All the June wedding movies have waited until the last 5 minutes of the movie before starting the wedding which should be the most important part of the movie. I wish you could devote more time to the actual wedding.

    Net, those cupcakes look so GOOD!! Here's the recipe from HMM web page....

    Fudge Cupcakes

    From FUDGE CUPCAKE MURDER by Joanne Fluke

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F., rack in the middle position


    4 squares unsweetened baking chocolate (1 ounce each)
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1/2 cup raspberry syrup (for pancakes—I used Knott’s red raspberry)
    1 2/3 cups flour
    1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup butter, room temperature (one stick, 1/4 pound)
    1 1/2 cups white sugar (not a misprint—you’ll use 1 3/4 cups sugar in all)
    3 eggs
    1/3 cup milk

    Line a 12-cup muffin pan with double cupcake papers. Since this recipe makes 18 cupcakes, you can use an additional 6-cup muffin pan lined with double papers, or you can butter and flour an 8-inch square cake pan or the equivalent.

    Microwave the chocolate, raspberry syrup and 1⁄4 cup sugar in a microwave-safe bowl on high for 1 minute. Stir. Microwave again for another minute. At this point, the chocolate will be almost melted, but it will maintain its shape. Stir the mixture until smooth and let cool to lukewarm. (You can also do this in a double boiler on the stove.)

    Measure flour, mix in baking powder and salt, and set aside. In an electric mixer (or with a VERY strong arm), beat the butter and 1 1⁄2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. (About 3 minutes with a mixer—an additional 2 minutes if you’re doing it by hand.) Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition to make sure they’re thoroughly incorporated. Add approximately a third of the flour mixture and a third of the milk. (You don’t have to be exact—adding the flour and milk in increments makes the batter smoother.) When that’s all mixed in, add another third of the flour and another third of the milk. When that’s incorporated, add the remainder of the flour and the remainder of the milk. Mix thoroughly.

    Test your chocolate mixture to make sure it’s cool enough to add. (You don’t want to cook the eggs!) If it’s fairly warm to the touch but not so hot you have to pull your hand away, you can add it at this point. Stir thoroughly and you’re done.

    Let the batter rest for five minutes. Then stir it again by hand and fill each cupcake paper three-quarters full. If you decided to use the 8-inch cake pan instead of the 6-cup muffin tin, fill it with the remaining batter.

    Bake the cupcakes in a 350 degree F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes. The 8-inch cake should bake an additional 5 minutes.

    Fudge Frosting


    18 cupcakes, or 12 cupcakes and 1 small cake, cooled to room temperature and ready to frost.
    2 cups chocolate chips (a 12-ounce package)
    1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

    If you use a double boiler for this frosting, it’s fool- proof. You can also make it in a heavy saucepan over low to medium heat on the stovetop, but you’ll have to stir it constantly with a spatula to keep it from scorching.

    Fill the bottom part of the double boiler with water. Make sure it doesn’t touch the underside of the top.

    Put the chocolate chips in the top of the double boiler, set it over the bottom, and place the double boiler on the stovetop at medium heat. Stir occasionally until the chocolate chips are melted.

    Stir in the can of sweetened condensed milk and cook approximately two minutes, stirring constantly, until the frosting is shiny and of spreading consistency.

    Spread on cupcakes, making sure to fi in the “frosting pocket.”

    Give the frosting pan to your favorite person to scrape.

    These cupcakes are even better if you cool them, cover them, and let them sit for several hours before frosting them.
