And speaking of delicate tasks, Dad just started a blog, presumably to combat my yellow- journalism-style sensationalist slander. He phoned me a couple of weeks ago to tell me as much, and followed it up with, "... but I can't get back into it because I can't remember the password."
So, long story short, what you do when your dad has a blog is help him remember his password and then to set things up correctly, and then to read his posts and comment on them. And to write slanderous lies and falsehoods about him so he'll have something to contest.
Let the protestations begin! (By the way, if you want to read my dad's blog, it really is amusing: http://mudcatmundane.blogspot.com.)
