Ill. There is a terrible story about a man who went out to play golf early one Saturday morning. His wife became concerned when he had not returned home by dinner time. It wasn’t until about midnight when he came through the front door, exhausted.
“Where have you been?” she demanded
“I’ve been playing golf” came the reply.
“But that was 18 hours ago. What happened?”
“I was having the best game of my life. I was two under par when on the seventh tee Harry had a heart attack and died.” His wife still didn’t understand.
“After that it was hit the ball, drag Harry - hit the ball drag Harry . . .”

A few years ago the Promise Keeps (which urges tens of thousands of men nationwide to be responsible, self-disciplined, and God-fearing) drew fire from the then president of the National Organization of Women, Patricia Ireland, “Promise Keepers have created a false veneer of men taking responsibility when they really mean men taking charge.”
I know you have heard the phrase “remember the Alamo.” It is a story that illustrates what we, as men are all about. 187 men against the Mexican army of over 6000. They were extraordinary men, but they knew they couldn’t win with those odds. They had sent out pleas for help, but they had gone unanswered. At some point Captain William Barrett Travis realized that reinforcements would not arrive in time and they were sure to be defeated. In a stirring speech he explained to his men the gravity of the situation. He told them that they could surrender or fight and face certain death. He drew a line in the dirt and said, “as for me, I have decided to fight until I die. Anyone who wants to join me, step across this line.” All but one crossed the line. Those included Davy Crockett, and even Jim Bowie, the man who had commanded the volunteers, but had to step aside because he was suffering from pneumonia. He asked to be carried across the line on his cot.
They knew they couldn’t win. They fought anyway. And they all died. Because of that they are all heroes and thousands visit the Alamo every year.
Why did they do it? Why didn’t they all like that one, slip out the back during the night and get away? I’ll tell you why. Because a man loves that challenge. A man loves to give himself to something greater than himself if he can just find it.
Do you realize that is how this country was founded? When those men signed the Declaration of Independence, they weren’t sure we could defeat England. But they were sure that it was worth dying to try.
THE DEFINITION OF BARBECUING
It’s the only type of cooking a "real man" will do. When a man volunteers to do the ’BBQ’ the following chain of events is put into motion:
1) The woman goes to the store.
2) The woman fixes the salad, vegetables, and dessert.
3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray
along with the necessary cooking utensils, and takes it to the
man, who is lounging beside the grill.
4) The man places the meat on the grill.
5) The woman goes inside to set the table and check the vegetables.
6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning.
7) The man takes the meat off the grill and hands it to the woman.
8) The woman prepares the plates and brings them to the table.
9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.
10) Everyone praises the man and thanks him for his...
Our five senses give us some astonishing capabilities. We can see a candle’s flame 30 miles away on a dark, clear night, and smell a single drop of perfume diffused in a three-room apartment. We can taste . 04 ounce of table salt in 530 quarts of water. Our sense of touch can detect a pressure that depresses the skin . 00004 inch on the face or fingertips. And we can tell where a sound is coming from even when it arrives at one ear just . 0003 second before its arrival at the other ear.

Many wives think it’s really just sex. Marriage and family therapist, Dr. Klayne Rasmussen, says men really want 3 basic things. (1) To know he is still attractive to his wife, even well past his Adonis prime. To most men, being sexually attractive is more than just being sexual. In essence it means they are a real man and “I am OK, the relationship is OK.” (2) To know he is an adequate provider. Taking care of his own “proves” he’s a man because that’s what real men do. (3) To feel like he is the king in his castle. Men want to feel like they matter and have some importance in their home. Rasmussen thinks very few women have any idea about what men really want and end up actually undermining their mate. Men, if made to feel valued in these areas, would be putty in their wives hands.

No man is as anti-feminist as a really feminine woman.
In the 1950¡¦s comedy classic ¡§I Love Lucy,¡¨ one episode dealt with Lucy¡¦s lack of cooking skills. She had no clue how much yeast to use. She kept dumping it in¡Kone box, two, three. She left the bread in the refrigerator for a while as she talked on the phone. When she returned the kitchen was filled with bread!

Ilustración: Tomas Alba Edison realizo 3,000 experimentos antes de inventar la bombilla. Cuando iba por el experimento numero 1,500 un periodista le dijo: señor Edison, usted ha fracasado 1,500 veces tratando de hacer una bombilla. No le dice esto que es tiempo de rendirse y aceptar que es imposible hacer una bombilla. Edison contestó: joven yo no he fracasado 1,500 veces, al contrario, he descubierto exitosamente 1,500 maneras de como no hacer una bombilla…
