OK, in the words of Douglas Adams, Don’t Panic. You still have a few days to get the dad(s) in your life a gift, thanks to WWW and fast shipping. But what do you get, and is it going to break the bank? Mmmm, maybe… Here are a few ideas for last minute Father’s Day gifts based on things we have reviewed, or that I own or covet. I will try not to go too deep down my fantasy wish list.
Today in the United States, of course, it’s a day known as Memorial Day. While military watches come and go (and we’ve reviewed quite a few here in the past), I’m…
