Her infatuation with Disney began with the modern classic Frozen. Her cover of The Little Mermaid‘s “Part of Your World” became one of her most popular video clips.

Today, Claire, who was born in October 2012, is 11 years old and she’s still singing. Additionally, she’s also an actress and is making a name for herself in the entertainment industry.

When it comes to her acting career, made her acting debut with the role of Rose in the feature film The Little Mermaid in 2018. In 2019 she voiced the character of Unitee in the film Spies in Disguise. Further, she landed the role of Orphan Girl in the feature film Anastasia in 2020.

In no time, Claire became very popular among children. No only they enjoy listening to her, but they also sing along her, and singing is proved to provide plenty of benefits at children.

Among the rest, it improves the child’s brain function because singing requires mastering the melody, the lyrics, and a repertoire of songs, which enhances their cognitive abilities, rhythm perception, and memory retention.

On top of that, singing improves breathing and alleviates speech impediments in children who struggle to speak (as they stutter less when singing).

To witness Claire’s incredible talent, take a look at the video below in which she’s singing at the age of three. You are going to fall in love with her talent.

Michael Landon’s son cared for his father during cancer battle – now he’s revealed his own tragic diagnosis

0

Best known for his roles of Little Jose Cartwright on the iconic western television show Bonanza and that of Charles Ingalls in Little House on the Prairie, late Michael Landon is still considered one of the best actors Hollywood has ever seen.

His impact on the film industry was profound and he helped many young actors and actresses skyrocket their careers and reach remarkable success.

Throughout his lengthy career in TV, Landon graced the cover of TV Guide a whopping 22 times. He shared this impressive feat with extraordinary with Lucile Ball.

Landon played plenty of roles in famous movies, including Highway to Heaven, and got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1984.

Throughout his life, he had been married three times. However, besides his first two marriages, it was his third wife Cindy Landon whom he called the love of his life. The two remained together until Landon’s tragic death in 1991 at the age of 54. Landon was a father of nine children and all of them agree he was the dad everyone would ask for, caring and loving, a true interpretation of Charles Ingalls.

Although he always tended to keep his private life out of the spotlight and rarely spoke of his children publicly, Michael Landon was known as a very loving and devoted father.

He had two sons, Mark and John, through adoption with his first wife Dodie Levy-Fraser. Landon and his second wife, Lynn Noe, welcomed four children together – Leslie, Michael Jr., Christopher, and Shawna, and he also adopted Noe’s daughter, Cheryl, whom she had from a previous relationship.

With Cindy Clerico, who was 20 years his junior, Landon had children Jennifer and Matthew.

In 2019, Jennifer spoke about her late father and told Closer Weekly that he was “a fantastic father who was curious about everything and loved to teach the children.” 

Following Landon’s passing, his children were devastated. His son Christopher Landon, who works as a director, opened up about his dad’s last days and explained that his father became like a “son,” while Christopher took on a role as “the father.”

In recent years, Christopher shared plenty of photos as a tribute to his late father.

Landon died of pancreatic cancer, and unfortunately, his son Christopher was also diagnosed with cancer in 2021.

In a post he shared on his social media, Christopher told his fans that he was diagnosed with kidney cancer.

“Whelp….where to start. About a week ago I was diagnosed with kidney cancer. I was rushed into emergency surgery to have part of my kidney removed…”

Luckily, his cancer was caught early and doctors were able to perform a surgery and remove a part of his kidney, which was a success.

Christopher urged his social media followers to take care of their health and to get tested before it’s too late.

‘What a beast!’ A huge snake was found by a hiker near South Carolina creek

0

A woman hiking at Jeffries Creek Park in Florence was startled to spot an enormous snake hiding near the edge of a creek.

As she has never seen such a huge snake before, although they are not uncommon at the area, she knew she needed to take photos of it so people could actually believe her story.

So what Meredith Langley did was take a closer look at the ‘beast.’

Upon taking photos, she uploaded them on the South Carolina Hiking club’s Facebook page. As expected, her post gathered the attention of many and was shared thousands of times in a matter of days.

Langley captioned her post, “This was a good teaching opportunity and example for my own kids who forget not to run ahead of me on trails!”

The snake, although extremely huge, was able to blend with the surrounding and wasn’t easy to spot.

According to experts, the reptile was a harmless brown water shake.

Greg Lucas, a biologist with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, explained that because of their thick, muscular bodies, water snakes appear larger than they actually are. According to him, water snakes grow to their full size between 30 and 60 inches.

These reptiles represent large species of nonvenomous natricine snake endemic to the southeastern United States and are often one of the most abundant species of snakes found in rivers and streams of the southeastern part of the country.

Langley said that on their weekly hikes in the area, she and her children come with copperhead snakes, but water snakes and water moccasins are also very common.

According to her, the snake she spotted and later shared online was around four feet long.

The beast was “wholly unafraid of us,” she added.

“It watched me with stillness and reserve, and without aggression or fear. That told me that this creature knew with certainty that it was capable of defending itself if needed, but it need not exert that energy unnecessarily,” Langley said.

“That area is its home, not ours, and my children and I maintain that respect and reverence anytime we are out in nature,” she added.

My mom arrived in a frilly white bridal dress to my brother’s wedding to draw all the attention

0

A wedding is a significant event that marks an important milestone in two people’s lives, so this day should be all about the bride and the groom.

A man shared a story of what had happened on his brother’s wedding and asked Redditors to tell him whether he was in the wrong.

He shared his story explaining that his older brother and his sister-in-law dated for seven years before deciding to tie the knot. He was extremely happy for them because as he stated, the two were incredible people he respected the most.

His mother, however, wasn’t as excited over the wedding for no particular reason. Days before the big day, she threw a tantrum over something insignificant and the newlyweds didn’t even expect her to attend the ceremony after that.

However, not only the groom’s mother was present at the wedding, but she wore a ridiculously frilly white bridal dress. No one was aware she was planning on wearing a wedding gown to her son’s wedding, although everyone somehow knew she would do something just to be in the center of attention and steal the spotlight.

The bride only noticed her mother-in-law wore a wedding dress while she walked down the aisle and spotted her sitting in the first row. However, not wanting to make a scene, she decided to simply go on with the ceremony as though nothing happened.

“Her dress was much more of a bridal dress than the bride’s that day,” the OP wrote of his mom’s dress.

As the wedding reception was about to take place, OP decided to do something in order to teach his mother a lesson for messing with his brother and his sister-in-law’s big day.

“We were served glasses of red wine at lunch, and I asked for mine to be filled to the brim,” he wrote in his Reddit post. And, as you probably assume, he didn’t drink it, but “accidentally” spilled it on his mom’s dress after tripping.

Her dress was ruined and she was raged. She started shouting and got extremely mad at him because she now needed to take a four-hour roundtrip drive to her home and back in order to change. She did just that, but missed a great part of the wedding reception. When she returned, she was dressed in the outfit her son, the one who was getting married, bought for her.

Some of the people close to the groom and the OP were aware that OP didn’t really trip. Knowing what type of a person their mother was, they were glad he did something to give her a taste of her own medicine.

The Maid of Honor even told him that he deserved an Oscar for his performance. “Enjoy the best bottle of wine I could find, for the best wedding gift you could have given us,” she said.

Sadly, OP’s mom still doesn’t talk to him, but he doesn’t regret what he did and Redditors are on his side.

Many agreed that he stepped up for his brother and his sister-in-law when they needed it the most.

They couldn’t help but slam the man’s mom for her conscious decision to make everything about her.

I came home and found my humiliated wife crying behind a closed door

0

A man took to the “AITA” forum on Reddit to ask fellow users if he was in the wrong when he decided to kick his sister and her twin daughters from his home.

Namely, when his sister got divorced and left her ex-husband’s home together with her two 16-year-old daughters and asked to move in with the OP, he and his wife were already going through a tough period themselves. His wife was diagnosed with cancer and was receiving chemo treatments but they still decided to open the door to their home for his sister and nieces.

The OP’s wife was fragile at the time because she lost her hair due to the medications and the treatments she was undergoing. She had a hard time accepting the way she looked so she decided to get herself a wig in order to regain her self-confidence. Her husband was extremely supportive and made all in his power to help her feel beautiful again.

His two teenage nieces were interested to touch the wig and play with it and even asked their uncle’s wife if they could have it in order to curl it and straighten it but were told they couldn’t. OP’s wife didn’t want to be seen with a bald head and wouldn’t take the wig in front of her husband’s sister and nieces.

One day, when OP came home, he could hear his wife crying. She locked herself in her room and refused to get outside. After pleading her to share with him what the problem was, she explained to him that his nieces took her wig without her consent and refused to return it. When she approached them to ask for her wig again, they started laughing and filming her.

Once she realized she was filmed, she entered the bedroom and wouldn’t leave it.

She was crushed because of the teenagers’ behavior.

Hearing this, OP rushed towards the kitchen where his sister and nieces were and confronted them. The girls handed him the wig and claimed they just wanted to have some fun and that it was all part of a prank.

He was furious and asked his sister to talk to them about their rude behavior, but she just turned to him and said that it wasn’t a big deal and that both he and his wife were overreacting. This made the man even more raged.

At that moment, although he knew they had nowhere else to go, he decided to kick them from his home.

He was welcoming and nice, and they tortured his wife as a result.

“I later let them know about the eviction since they thought I wasn’t serious, and they started crying, begging that I let it go,” the man stated. His sister started crying and begged him to change his mind, but he wasn’t having any of her excuses.

She then involved their father who also tried to convince his son not to kick his sister out of the house.

The man wanted to know if he overreacted as his sister believed or he did the right thing standing up for his sick wife.

Redditors shared their opinions. “NTA. They’re 16, old enough to know better and understand that actions have consequences,” Aunty_Fascist stated, adding that the girls were at fault for disrespecting the wife.

“If my son did that at 16, I would flush his phone down the can, lock up the keys to the car, and ground him until he’s 25,” another user added.

“How would they feel if someone shaved THEIR heads and started filming and laughing?” laulau88foo wondered, claiming the girls were rude and the man was kind to let them stay at his house.

A newly adopted stray dog saved the life of a newborn baby in the middle of the night

0

One family, The Robinsons, had a 6-year-old son, and when the wife ended up being pregnant with their second child, they decided to move to a bigger house in a remote area where they wanted to build a farm. As they lived in a small apartment which they rented before getting the house, they weren’t allowed to keep a pet at home, but now that they had their own place, they desperately wanted to get a dog.

Wanting to adopt a canine from a shelter, they visited some and as they were hearing all those stories of how each of the animals ended up there, they stumbled upon a shy Pit Bull named Benson.

Sadly, Benson’s life wasn’t an easy one. He was used for fighting for many years and was later dumped on the streets. When volunteers found him, he had already lost faith in humans and was afraid to even lift his head. After some time at the shelter, a family took him in but his happiness lasted for 2 weeks only. The family decided they didn’t want him because he wasn’t friendly.

Hearing this, Mrs. Robinson knew she needed to give him a chance for a better life. They adopted Benson, and although he acted strangely at first, he soon made friends with the family’s son Mathias.

When the baby was born, Benson only showed love and affection.

One night, however, the family heard a loud barking coming from the baby’s room. They rushed to see what was going on when they saw Benson biting the ribs of the crib. At first, they feared the worst as they though he wanted to hurt the little one, but he was doing just the opposite. As it turned out, the baby stopped breathing and Benson was trying to reach to her.

The family rushed her to the hospital where they were told that if Benson didn’t alert them of the baby’s condition, she would surely die. Thankfully, that didn’t happen.

When Mrs. Robinson saved his life by getting him out of the shelter, she never assumed Benson would save her child’s life in return.

Malia Obama’s remarkable evolution has been capturing attention

0

Being the daughter of a former president of the United States of America, it doesn’t come as a surprise that the public is interested in the private life of Malia Obama.

Barack Obama served as a president from 2009 to 2017 and although it’s been years since he and his family left the White House, they are still very active in the sphere of politics.

Malia grew up in front of the eyes of the public, and watching her choose a career path and become her own person has been a delight to the fans and the supporters of her family.

25-year-old Malia opted to pursue a career as a screenwriter, and she’s pretty successful at what she does. She no longer resembles the young girl who wore cute dresses and ribbons and held her daddy’s hand in public, but a young woman with an individual, casual sense of style.

Both sisters now made a home in Brentwood, close to the university Sasha attends.

As of their parents, they can’t be more proud of their daughters, which is something they mention whenever given the chance.

During an appearance on the The Late Late Show with James Corden, the former President opened up of the fears that growing up in the White House would lead his daughters to become “odd kids.” But that didn’t happen, and his girls turned into “fantastic young women.”

Michelle is as proud of her daughters. In the past, she said how she and her husband wanted to raise “authentic people” who would be able to navigate their way in the world beyond living in the White House. During an interview, Michelle joked about Sasha and Malia’s cocktail-making skills. “Not only did they drink it, they made one. Now it was a bad martini. It was very weak in a tumbling glass,” the former First Lady said.

“You know they stumbled through. It was mostly vermouth and ice. Well, maybe it wasn’t even vermouth because I don’t even think they knew that vermouth goes in a martini,” she added.

Recently, the sisters were spotted pictured arriving at Drake’s after-party following his sold-out show with 21 Savage and it’s very obvious that they share a close bond.

During a separate occasion, Malia was spotted in New York with Dawit Eklund, her alleged boyfriend.

On her 25th birthday, her parents wrote heartfelt messages to their older daughter.

Barack, 61, posted a sweet photo giving his girl a big hug in what appeared to be his former presidential office.

“Happy birthday to this talented, hilarious, and beautiful young woman. Malia, I hope 25 brings you everything you’re looking for and more,” he posted on Instagram.

Her mom congratulated her on her birthday with a throwback photo of herself and Malia as a todler.

“Happy birthday, Malia!,” Michelle captioned the post. “I feel so lucky to be your mom and to be able to watch you become the wonderful young woman you are today. Love you so much! 💕.”

Malia is not only successful in building her Hollywood career, but she’s also very happy for having supportive parents by her side.

If you see these hanging from your tree, you need to know what it means

0

The bagworms belong to the superfamily Tineoidea, which is a basal lineage of the Ditrysia (as is Gelechioidea, which includes case-bearers). The family is relatively small, with about 1,350 species, who are found almost everywhere.

Despite their name, which comes from the worm-like form of the larvae, these insects aren’t worms but moths.

The bagworms live their entire life cycle inside the safety of their bag, which they construct using silk and interwoven bits of foliage. These bags are created when the larvae attache bits of plant debris, such as leaves, twigs, and bark, to their bodies using a silk-like thread they produce. As they grow bigger, the bag gets bigger too.

The eggs of a female moth hatch in late spring or early summer.

Only the adult male moth leaves the protection of its bag when ready to mate while female moth doesn’t leave her bag.

Bagworms usually infest evergreen and deciduous trees and the bags they construct sometimes resemble a cone so people may overlook them at first glance. Their favorite host plants are cedar, arborvitae, juniper, and false cypress, but in the absence of these preferred hosts, bagworm will eat the foliage of just about any tree: fir, spruce, pine, hemlock, sweetgum, sycamore, honey locust, and black locust. 

Although they seem harmless, bagworms actually cause significant damage to the trees. The issue is that they hide until the infestation is severe.

As they feed on the leaves of the tree, it makes it more difficult for the tree to photosynthesize and produce the nutrients needed for growth and survival.

At the same time, they make the tree weaker, and with that, more prone to diseases, attacks from other pests, and environmental stressors. If not treated for bagworms, the tree can eventually die.

There are several ways of managing bagworms infestations. Some of them are explained below.

One of the ways is to pluck each of the bag/cocoon out of the tree one at a time. This is however possible if the number of trees affected is smaller. If you deal with a landscape of affected trees, each of which containing numerous bags of bagworms, this isn’t the most appropriate method.

Luckily, there are other methods available, such as:

Pruning and Destruction – In case of widespread infestation prune the affected branches and properly destroy them. Also, look for other places of infestation, such as nearby fences.

Encourage Natural Predators – Some birds and parasitic wasps feed on bagworms, so attracting them can come in handy when fighting against bagworms. Woodpeckers, for one, can even break apart the bags to eat the females or eggs inside. Encouraging this method, by making your yard or farm bird-friendly helps avoid using chemicals which otherwise kill the helpful insects too.

Chemical Control – If nothing else works, turn to chemical control such as acephate (Orthene), cyfluthrin, and spinosad, applied as sprays. It is important to have in mind that chemical control should be approached with caution and only used as a last resort, considering the potential environmental impact. In case you opt for chemical control, do it on a windless and dry day so the product dries quickly and doesn’t drift on the breeze.

It would be for the best to prevent the infestation of bagworms in the first place. This can be achieved with regular inspection of the trees, good maintenance, planting the trees at appropriate distance to avoid overcrowding, and by monitoring the surrounding vegetation, among the rest.

Jennifer Aniston’s heartbreaking words on Matthew Perry – her demand to fans confirms what we suspected

0

The passing of Matthew Perry left a void in the hearts of his fans, family, and cast-mates. Probably best known for the role of witty Chandler Bing in the iconic series Friends, Perry was always ready to crack jokes that made millions laugh while he was fighting his demons and struggled with alcohol and drug addiction.

Perry’s addictions spiraled downward after he was prescribed Vicodin following a jet ski accident in 1997.

“It wasn’t my intention to have a problem with it,” he told People in 2002. “But from the start, I liked how it made me feel, and I wanted to get more.”

Sadly, his problems only grew bigger and bigger.

“I had this odd rule that I would never drink on a set,” Perry told The New York Times. “I went to work in extreme cases of hangovers. It’s so horrible to feel that way and have to work and be funny on top of that.”

Warner Bros. Television

“I ​don’t remember three years of it,” the late actor revealed in an interview with the BBC about filming Friends while struggling with his addiction. “I was a little out of it at the time — somewhere between Seasons 3 and 6.”

The relationship Perry shared with his five best friends on screen translated into equally profound friendships off screen. His cast-mates, who were well aware about everything Perry was going through, tried helping him and were very supportive, not only during the ten years the series was filmed but later on as well.

“I thought I was hiding it so well. But I wasn’t in a position to stop, Perry shared.”

One of the actors who reached out to Perry the most was Jennifer Aniston.

Aniston stood by his side through thick and thin and she was the one who stayed in close contact with him during his ups and downs.

A friend of hers told Daily Mail, “Nobody shed more tears for Matthew during the darkest points of his struggles with addiction than Jennifer.”

“All five of the Friends cast are in real bad shape, but Jen’s by far taking this the worst,” a Hollywood insider told Woman’s Day.

“She’s torturing herself with each and every scenario where she could have done this or should have said that. She was one of the last people to speak to him, and she’d planned on calling him on Sunday [the day after he died]. She’s been going over every word, but no one could have known.”

The insider stated, “The real pain is the fact she’s been with him almost every step of the way. She had huge hopes for a big comeback for Matthew, and they were talking about working on a new script together. There was so much to look forward to, but even Jen knows it was his body that gave out, not Matthew.”

“She knows he wanted to live, which makes his premature death unbelievably cruel. He had so much more to give. She’s absolutely crushed, and it will take her a long time to recover. She will never be convinced she didn’t do everything she could to save him, but she truly did. The world had Matthew Perry for a lot longer than expected thanks to Jen and Courteney Cox helping him through those dark times.”

That the bond between Perry and Aniston was as close as that of the characters they portrayed was obvious from the 2021 reunion. Back then, it was uncertain whether Perry would take part in it due to his battle with his addictions, but Aniston insisted she wouldn’t want a reunion without him.

She was convinced he would eventually overcome his addictions, but just two years following the reunion, Perry died, and Aniston has utterly been heartbroken ever since. She has always aspired to be supportive and be there for Perry, but the truth is that she has always dreaded this day could come.

Tommaso Boddi/WireImage

Perry and Aniston first met around three years before being cast for the roles of Chandler and Rachel. In his memoir, Friends, Lovers, and the Big Terrible Thing, which he published last year, Perry wrote how he attempted to date her, but she declined.

When they reunited again on the set of Friends, their friendship blossomed, and nothing romantic ever happened between them.

Before losing her longtime friend, Aniston lost a central figure in her life, her dad, veteran TV soap star John Aniston.

A source close to the actress told Express that’s she’s not having it easy.

“It’s hit her that she’s lost two of the most important men in her life in the space of 12 months and she’s reeling,” the source said.

“[Matthew Perry] was like a brother to her. Jen was badly hit by her father’s death and was really only coming to terms with his passing when the terrible news about Matty hit her like a ton of bricks. She’s still in a state of shock over him, and now the anniversary of her dad’s death has plunged her into even deeper grief. She’s utterly distraught.”

Alex B. Huckle/Getty Images

Following Perry’s passing, his family founded a non-profit organization in his honor. “It is important to us, as a family, to honor Matthew’s legacy, the late Friends star’s family said in a statement to People. “The potential that the Matthew Perry Foundation has to help those suffering from this disease is something we are proud to bring to the world.” 

In honor of Giving Tuesday, Aniston urged her fans to donate to Perry’s foundation.

“For #GivingTuesday please join me and Matty’s family in supporting his foundation – which is working to help those suffering with addiction,” Aniston wrote in a post on her Instagram Story. “He would have been grateful for the love.”

Not only Aniston, but the rest of the crew of Friends also paid tributes to their late friend, and now, they want to acknowledge the importance of his presence in their lives publicly, and people close to them believe they would have the chance to do that at the yearly Emmy Awards that will be hosted at the Peacock Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, California in January.

“When it comes to Matthew’s death, emotions are still running high, and it is still a very touchy situation, which is totally understandable,’ a source told DailyMail.

“But Jen, Lisa, and the rest of the cast want to honor him publicly at some point and give him the tribute he so rightfully deserves – and there have been rumblings to do it at next year’s Emmys.”

The source added, “They all would love to get together on stage to speak about him and also have their own unique moment sharing memories about him and telling the world about the man he was in real life. If they can all agree on a worthy tribute and get the blessing of his family, they will absolutely get together to make that night a special moment for Matthew and all who loved him.”

Husband pays over $5K for friends’ & co-workers’ Christmas presents, wife is ‘shocked’ seeing the price of her gift

0

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. Although the holiday is all about appreciating everything we have and being grateful for our family and friends, it’s also about getting gifts for our loved ones.

A married couple was about to spend their first Christmas together as a husband and wife after dating for three years. They had this tradition of buying gifts separately.

One day, as she was cleaning around the house, the woman accidentally stumbled upon her husband’s Christmas gift list.

She was curious to take a peek, but what she read left her in a state of shock.

As she was going through the list, she noticed that her husband was very generous when he was picking gifts for his friends, co-workers, and family. Among the rest, he purchased a wristwatch worth $600 for a co-worker, a $250 bracelet for his sister-in-law, and $900 workout gear for a friend of his.

However, when she finally spotted her name, she couldn’t believe her eyes. The gift her husband chose for her was a stainless steel kitchen spoon set worth $20. At that moment, she felt both disappointment and rage, and after giving the entire situation a thought, she decided to confront him about this issue.

“I was too shocked to ignore this and I had a confrontation with him about it,” she explained in a post on Reddit in which she asked fellow users to tell her if she was right to act like she did.

Her husband told her that she was selfish and that she overreacted. He also said that since he was spending his own money on the gifts, he was allowed to spend as much as he wanted on whomever he wanted.

As she insisted that she was insulted by his lack of thoughtfulness, he told her she should learn how to be satisfied with whatever she gets no matter how much the gift costs.

She believed she wasn’t appreciated as much as his friends and family, but he called her an “ungrateful, spoiled brat.”

Calling her ridiculous, he even stopped talking to her.

Redditors took a stand and told her that she was completely right for being mad at her husband for choosing such a gift for her since he was spending outrageous amounts of money on others.

“If one of my coworkers spent so much more on me than on their own spouse, I would be SERIOUSLY weirded out,” one person noted. “If my BIL got me a $250 bracelet I’d be extremely uncomfortable. Throw in the fact that he only spent $20 on spoons for his wife I’d be appalled,” another added.

Others even suggested that the choice of gifts was a huge red flag. “That’s a huge red flag to dote and shower others with gifts and not your significant other…but expect them to get you nice things in return. It’s beyond disrespectful,” one person said.

Kevin Bacon shakes off his ‘footloose’ record for celebratory throwback dance

0

Almost 40 years after Footloose aired, actor Kevin Bacon showed the world that he still got his dance moves. In a video he posted recently, the 65-year-old Hollywood star recreated the iconic dance from the 1984 Oscar-nominated film in which he starred. 

The video was captioned “Strike over! @sagaftra” and celebrated the end of the 118-day actors’ strike after SAG-AFTRA reached a tentative agreement with Hollywood studios in November.

The video was taken in an empty barn, and showed Bacon being all jolly with his cowboy boots on, dancing to the film’s title song by Kenny Loggins.

“It pleases me to no end that you embrace and provide so joyfully what brings the rest of us such happiness. Thank you for this, and all you do, Mr. Bacon,” fellow actor Nathan Fillion commented on the video.

“This made my day Kevin!” Rita Wilson, singer and wife of Tom Hanks wrote.

“Oh. My. Yessssssssssss,” said Dancing With The Stars presenter Julianne Hough, with actor Ethan Hawk adding: “This is amazing!!!!!”

“An entire generation was just celebrating over this video!” a fan added.

As Footloose is to celebrate its 40 years anniversary in February, Bacon acknowledged the importance of the film, also starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Lori Singer, John Lithgow and Dianne Wiest, for its impact on a number of generations and fans.

“40 years. That’s one of those movies. It did change my life,” Bacon said. “To say nothing else would not be true. I was working and I knew I’d be an actor for the long haul, but I thought a character actor — which I am — but this took over people’s psyche for that moment and my life switched.”

She asked if he would remarry but she wasn’t ready for the response

0

Has it ever happened to you that you started a conversation and then you regretted it because it lead to certain questions being raised?

We are sure the woman from the following story wished she had never asked her husband if he would ever remarry again in case she’s no longer around. Why, you may wonder? Well, read the text below and you’ll learn the reason.

The wife turns to her husband and asks, “Darling, if I were to pass away, would you consider remarrying?”

Taking a moment to reflect, the husband responds, “In time, I believe I might. We all seek companionship to heal.”

Curiosity lingers as the wife inquires further, “And if I were no more, would your new wife reside in our cherished home?”

With a thoughtful nod, the husband explains, “We’ve invested much into creating the perfect home. It’s unlikely I’d part with it. Yes, she probably would.”

Continuing her line of questioning, the wife asks, “Hypothetically, if you remarried and she lived here, resting in our bed, would she slumber in our very bed?”

The husband’s eyes meet hers, “Indeed, our bed is fairly new, an investment of $2,000. It’s built to endure, so yes, she would.”

A mischievous glint in her eye, the wife adds one final twist, “And if you remarried, if she inhabited our home, slept in our bed, would she also take up my beloved golf clubs?”

Laughter fills the room as the husband playfully retorts, “Ah, but there’s a catch! She’s a lefty, my dear!”

‘It’s a blessing cake’ – Adopted boys break down over 1st ever birthday celebrations

0

Our birthday is that special day of the year that reminds us that we are still alive and we have a lot to be thankful for.

The truth is, however, that not everyone gets to celebrate their birthday like this. For many, having a birthday cake is just a dream that is hard to be fulfilled.

Abraham and James Walker, who were brought up in Siera Leone and experienced tough childhood while growing up never had the chance to blow candles on a birthday cake. Fortunately, that was about to change.

They boys used to live on the streets before they ended up in an orphanage, but luckily, they were adopted by an incredibly loving family from the United States. Needless to say, their lives changed completely, and now, each new day is a new adventure for them.

According to their adoptive mother Jamie who resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, from the moment her boys entered their new home, to the first ever presents they received, “everything is magic to them.”

However, the most magical moment of all, which caught the attention of a huge number of people, was when Abraham got to celebrate his birthdays with a real cake.  

“This was the moment I knew he’d been waiting for,” Jamie wrote. “His very first birthday cake. One for just him. One with his name on it.”

Jamie posted a video of the heartwarming moment Abraham sees his mom walking in with his birthday cake. He’s shocked at first and then with tears of joy running down his face, he rushes towards his dad’s arms to give him a warm and long hug.

“When I see the cake, I thought that is the most beautifulest thing I’ve ever seen,” Abraham said. “It’s not just a birthday cake. It’s a blessing cake.”

His siblings are also there to share this precious moment with their brother, including James who was about to get his very own cake a few weeks later.

Considering James’ more “serious” personality, Jamie believed his reaction won’t be as emotional as that of her brother, but she was so wrong.

“The most intense hug I’ve ever had,” Jamie wrote. “I could feel his joy, his gratitude, his hope, his love, his everything. It was all there wrapped around me.”

Abraham’s and James’ genuine reactions remind us that we should learn how to be happy with little things in life because they are what make living worthwhile.

We are so happy for these boys and we are glad they finally live the life they always deserved.

Deer Brings Her Babies To Meet Her Best Friend — A Golden Retriever!

0

Speaking of unusual friendships, the the following might be one of the most incredible ones you have ever witnessed.

Buttons is a deer who made friends with a Golden Retriever named G-Bro. But this friendship wasn’t just a one time thing. Instead, it has started 11 years ago and it still lasts. What’s most, Button’s fawns have also become an important part of the canine’s life.

When Buttons became a mom for the first time, she was eager to take her little ones to her best friends.

And as gentle as G-Bro is said to be, he was overly excited to meet his friend’s babies.

In the video below, the dog could be seen greeting the fawns with gentle licks and playing around with them the way he has played with their mom over the years.

Those who have seen the footage jokes that G-Bro makes an amazing ‘step-dad’ to the little fawns and is of great help to his friend.

Buttons visiting G-Bro has turned into a tradition the entire family loves and looks forward to. When she arrives at the family’s home, she sometimes paws at the door in order to announce her presence.

The favorite activities of these two buddies are hiking through the woods and frolicking in the snow with incredible excitement.

Button’s story is one of love and resilience. She was rescued by G-Bro’s family years ago. Namely, the family got a call about a deer that got injured in a car accident and they were more than likely to step in.

They took Buttons in and nurtured her until she was ready to get back into the forest. But she never forgot the kindness she received and the love and affection she felt both from the family and their precious dog.

The enduring friendship between Buttons and G-Bro is a sweet reminder that love knows no boundaries, even when it comes to different species. It’s true that at times, the most extraordinary friendships can blossom in the most unexpected places.

For more on this beautiful friendship and sweet bonding between these dear and dog go to the video below. Heart-melting indeed.

This former First Lady’s outfit choice was the topic of intense discussion at Roslynn Carter’s funeral

0

Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, who passed away November 19 at the age of 96, will always be remembered as someone who devoted her life serving the nation, not only during the time at the White House, but beyond.

She was an advocate for women’s rights and spent her lifetime raising awareness about mental health.

On January 20, 1977, Jimmy was inaugurated as the 39th President of the United States. Rosalynn was by his side and wore the same gown she had worn when he was sworn in as Georgia Governor years earlier.

During his presidency, Roselynn wasn’t just a First Lady, but she was her husband’s closest advisor and stood by his side supporting every decision he made as a head of the country.

“Rosalynn was my equal partner in everything I ever accomplished,” former president Jimmy Carter said in the statement following her passing. “She gave me wise guidance and encouragement when I needed it. As long as Rosalynn was in the world, I always knew somebody loved and supported me.”

Two years ago, Jimmy Carter and his loving wife Rosalynn celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary and held the title of the longest-married presidential couple.

The Carters tied the knot on July 7, 1946, in their hometown of Plains, Georgia, where they celebrated the special milestone.

Rosalynn’s family lived next to Jimmy’s and she was a very good friend with his sister. She remembered that Jimmy’s sister had a photo of him on the wall and she fell in love with that photo showing young Jimmy wearing his uniform.

“I didn’t know a single boy I thought I’d want to spend my life with until Jimmy Carter came calling,” Rosalynn explained.

When Jimmy returned to Plains on a break from the Naval Academy, his then-girlfriend was away at a family reunion, so he missed the opportunity to see her.

“I was cruising around with my sister, Ruth, and her boyfriend, just looking for a date, and I picked up Rosalynn in front of the Methodist church,” Jimmy recalled in What Makes a Marriage Last. When he laid eyes on Rosalynn, he immediately knew she was the one.

“I just felt compatible with her. She was beautiful and innocent, and there was a resonance. We rode in the rumble seat of a Ford pickup – Ruth and her boyfriend in the front – and I kissed her on that first date. I remember that vividly.”

“The moon was full in the sky, conversation came easy, and I was in love,” Rosalynn wrote in her memoir First Lady from Plains about their first date.

They started dating but didn’t marry until she turned 18 because she made a promise to her dying father that she won’t marry before finishing school.

With Rosalynn’s passing, Jimmy Carter lost not only his life companion, but his best friend.

The Carter’s son Chip also issued a statement thanking his mother for the tireless work she put in to give Americans better access to mental health care.

“Her life of service and compassion was an example for all Americans. She will be sorely missed not only by our family but by the many people who have better mental health care and access to resources for caregiving today.”

The former First Lady was honored by her loved ones and laid to rest on Wednesday in her longtime home of Plains, Georgia. The funeral service was held at Maranatha Baptist Church, where Jimmy Carter and the former first lady worshipped. Earlier tributes were held in nearby Americus and in Atlanta.

The ceremony saw the attendance of both current and former U.S. First Ladies, including Dr. Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, Melania Trump, Laura Bush, and Hillary Clinton.

What caught the attention of many was the outfit Melania Trump chose for the occasion. As most of the attendees wore black, she wore a gray tweed coat cinched at the waist with a belt, deviating from the all-black protocol. The mid-calf length of the coat left her bare legs exposed and she wore black leather gloves.

Plenty of people commented on the photos and videos of Melania, disapproving of her choice of outfit for Rosalynn’s funeral.

“Melania can’t wear black?? How disrespectful,” someone commented.

Others questioned if she even owned a black coat, while others suggested that the facial expressions of the rest of the former First Ladies disapproved of Melania’s outfit as well.

Some, of course, defended her. “The day was about Mrs. Carter, not about what anyone was wearing. Good grief, can’t we even be decent about a funeral anymore?” someone wrote.

Watch this adorable little girl’s impressive ice skating moves

0

Ice skating has always been a pleasure to watch for me. Looking at the skaters dance to the rhythm in perfect sync and showing mesmerizing choreographic movements shows just what the human body is capable of.

The truth is that as with any other sport out there, ice-skating requires a lot of patience and practice in order to master the moves. That is why many start practicing at young age, just like the adorable 3-year-old girl from this story. It seems like she’s too young to be ice-skating, but she loves it so much that she spends plenty of time doing it.

From what we can see, it looks like that if her parents encourage her to pursue a career as an ice-skater, she could be taking part in the Winter Olympic Games in a couple of years.

In the video below, we see the three-year-old competing for the first time ever, but judging from her confidence, we can easily assume she had done this before.

No stage fright and some super talent are this girl’s way of conquering the hearts of the people who are eagerly waiting to witness her performance.

Carrie Underwood and son deliver heartwarming rendition of ‘The Little Drummer Boy’ in a duet overflowing with angelic charm

0

With Christmas just around the corner, the holiday spirit can be felt in the air.

For Carrie Underwood and her sweet son Isaiah Christmas came early and they wanted to treat fans with an enchanting rendition of one of the season’s favorite songs, The Little Drummer Boy.

This holiday classic, which has its roots in a traditional Czech melody that gained widespread recognition a decade after its initial release, has been covered by many big names in the world of music, including Bing Crosby.

However, Carrie duetting with her 5-year-old son brings a different type of emotion and breaths new life into the famous tune.

Carrie herself admits that this duet brought out “so many emotions.”

“I was in the booth with him, and trying to get him to access all his little 5-year-old emotions, which he can totally do on his own … When I heard the song back with his sweet little voice on it, I was laughing and crying,” Underwood shared with Today. “I’m so proud of him.”


Little Drummer Boy is part of Underwood’s new holiday album, My Gift, and Isaiah’s voice is just the perfect fit. His and his mom’s voice blend in a perfect harmony.

This is the singer’s first ever Christmas album and she’s proud of it. Underwood hopes that her fans will ‘need’ it as much as she needs it.

“I’m so proud of the music that we were able to create, but, also, we were able to create it this year, through all the obstacles,” Underwood shares. “We just want to bring some Christmas joy to people, so I’m super excited.”

In her HBO Special, My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood, the singer explained that having her young son be a part of the album was of great importance to her because “children are truly our greatest gift.” 

The proud mom noted that Isaiah’s performance surpassed expectations because not only he did an excellent job but he also bears a striking resemblance to the boy depicted in the song’s narrative.

Underwood’s album is scheduled to be released on December 25. It consists of Christmas classics and original songs by the artist.

9 things you should never plug into a power strip

0

When we think of the past, one of the first thoughts that runs through our mind is how people lived without electricity. Nowadays, we can’t even imagine a day without it because all of our appliances and devices run on electricity.

The truth is, however, that most homes don’t have enough power outlets to keep everything running and charged, so most of us rely on power strips without being aware that appliances that consume a lot of energy become dangerous fire hazards when we plug them into a power strip.

Although power strips are the thing to go to when it comes to charging your phone or power an entertainment setup, there are certain devices that should never be plugged into a power strip.

Air conditioners, space heaters, toasters, and other appliances that use high wattage can easily cause power strips to overheat, which can easily lead to a fire hazard.

Even before plugging anything into a power strip consider the ammount of power they support. This is usually listed on the product itself.

High-capacity appliances need to draw a lot of power through an electrical circuit to work. Keep in mind that an appliance does not need to be large in size to draw large amounts of power.

Below is the list of appliances that should never be plugged into a power strip.

1. The oven: Even though the oven is not used continually, it is a power-hungry appliance that should not be plugged into a power strip. In fact, it should be plugged into its own wall outlet on its own circuit.

2. Refrigerator: Refrigerators require a lot of power and frequently cycle on and off which can easily overload a power strip and cause damage. Much like the oven, refrigerators require a wall outlet dedicated solely to powering the appliance.

3. Washing Machine: When turned on, washing machines pull a lot of power. This is the main reason why these appliances shouldn’t share a receptacle with any other appliance or device.

Most washing machines use a max of up to 1400 watts, putting it dangerously close to the max load of most power strips. On top of that while working, washing machines are usually left unattended and work longer hours, at least an hour, which is long enough for a power strip to overheat.

4. Heating: Portable heaters should never be plugged into a power strip because most of them use 1,500 watts of energy on their high setting and they usually run for extended periods of time.

5. Microwave: Since they consume a lot of energy when used, most microwave ovens are plugged into their own receptacle and that is always a good practice.

6. Coffee Maker: Those who own a coffee maker are not fully aware of the power these appliances use, and this is why they should never be plugged into any sort of power strip or extension cord.

7. Toaster: You may think that browning up slices of bread or bagels doesn’t require a lot of energy, but the truth is that toasters use a lot of energy when in use and they should be plugged directly into the receptacle rather than a power strip.

8. Another Power Strip: Power strips are not meant to be used in conjunction with another power strip, although many people do exactly that. This, however, violates most safety codes because it can easily lead to overloading the electrical system.

9. Electronics (Computer, TV, Router): These types of electronic devices don’t necessarily use a lot of power on their own, but they are sensitive to surges and you can find yourself with a burnt out computer or TV very quickly if you plug them into a power strip.

If you want to protect these sensitive devices from power surges, opt for a power strip that functions as a surge protector.

Michael J. Fox makes heart-wrenching new statement after 30-year battle with Parkinson’s

0

At the beginning of this year, the much-anticipated nonfiction film featuring the life of beloved actor Michael J. Fox premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City. The film, produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, retells the story of the actor who rose to stardom in the 80s by landing roles in iconic movies such as Back to the Future, and series such as Family Ties.

The film had a special showing at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival in Austin, Texas, and Michael was there accompanied by wife Tracy Pollen. During the Q&A, he opened up about his life with Parkinson’s disease, which he was diagnosed with at the age of just 29.

It was short after he and Tracy got married and had their first child. Tracy never left her husband’s side and is his biggest support. The two are doing their best to cope with Michael’s condition and are working hard on raising funds for finding cure for Parkinson’s disease. He disclosed his condition with the public in 1998 and semi-retired from acting two years later as his health worsened.

It took young Michael a lot of time to accept the reality, but he finally decided to make the best out of his life despite the struggles the disease forced him to face.

“Parkinson’s sucks, but it’s a great life, so thank you for it,” the actor said. “Pity is a benign form of abuse. I can feel sorry for myself, but I don’t have time for that. There is stuff to be learned from this, so let’s do that and move on,” he contined.

“My fans have basically given me my life. I wanted to give these people who have done so much for me my time and gratitude. It was great for me to hear from all of you.”

Facebook/The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research

In the past, the Spin City star spoke of the decision to continue making movies following the diagnosis and said, “I have no regrets. You do what you have to do, but you do not want to kill yourself. And that’s when I stopped.”

Along with his wife, Michael established the Michael J. Fox Foundation whose goal is finding cure for Parkinson’s disease through funded research. The organization is currently the largest non-profit founder of Parkinson’s disease research in the world. His dedication to helping patients with the disease he suffers from himself placed him on the 2007 Time Magazine’s list of 100 people “whose power, talent or moral example is transforming the world.”

Although he continued acting after the diagnosis, his work was mainly focused on lending his voice in films like Stuart Little and Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

The actor has written four books, Lucky Man: A Memoir (2002), Always Looking Up: The Adventures of an Incurable Optimist (2009), A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future: Twists and Turns and Lessons Learned (2010) and his fourth, No Time Like the Future, released on November 17, 2021.

Recently, he opened up about his life yet again and explained that despite his efforts to project positivity about his disease, things are getting harder.

“I’m not gonna lie. It’s gettin’ hard, it’s gettin’ harder. It’s gettin’ tougher,” Fox told CBS Sunday Morning anchor Jane Pauley.

“Every day it’s tougher. But, but, that’s, that’s the way it is. I mean, you know, who do I see about that?”

He also spoke about the spinal cord surgery he was forced to undergo.

“[I] broke this arm, and I broke this arm, I broke this elbow. I broke my face. I broke my hand,” Fox told Pauley.

“You don’t die from Parkinson’s. You die with Parkinson’s,” Fox concluded. “I’ve been thinking about the mortality of it. … I’m not gonna be 80. I’m not gonna be 80.”

“I’m in intense pain. Each tremor is like a seismic jolt,” the actor shared.

“It’s not so much pain from the movement, but from the not moving. It’s when you freeze, and in that freezing that not-movement becomes infused with all this energy and it becomes this burning, impending thing that never happens.

“I don’t want to get the violins out. I’ve broken my hand, my elbow, my humerus, my other humerus, my shoulder, my face and some other s— too. And all that stuff is amplified by the electricity of the tremors. So, yes, it hurts a lot. But what you learn is that nobody gives a s—. It’s just life. It doesn’t matter. You suck it up and you move on. And there might be a story to tell in it. But only that. There’s no chit that you can present to a window for a refund.”

Despite everything that is going on in his life, he promised his fans he’s not going anywhere.

“The depression is [not] so deep that I’m going to injure myself … it always comes back to a place where I go, ‘Well, there’s more to celebrate in my life than there is to mourn.’ The pain speaks for itself. You either tolerate it or you don’t. And I’m not going anywhere.”

Michael J. Fox is an incredible actor and individual, we only wish him the best in the years to come.

Simone Biles’ parents who took her from foster care aren’t fans of her ‘LA house’ in Houston

0

Simone Biles is a remarkable athlete who won 7 Olympic medals across two Olympic Games.

Being part of the Tokyo Olympics was just another gem in her career’s crown of glory. This time, with her decision to withdraw from the competition, she became sort of a spokesperson for the importance of the mental health. “It’s been a long week. It’s been a long Olympic process. It’s been a long year. Just a lot of different variables and I think we’re just a little bit too stressed out, but we should be out here having fun and sometimes that’s not the case,” she said after announcing her withdrawal, as per USA Today.

Biles’ life hasn’t always been easy. As a young child, she and her sisters were part of the foster system before their grandparents could adopt them. Her grandmother Nellie, whom the star calls ‘mom,’ has always been very supportive of Biles’ dreams. “She encourages me and never lets me feel down about something for too long,” Biles told CNN.

Getty Images

In her Facebook series Simone vs. Herself, she spoke of the time she and her siblings were taken from their mother and then given to their grandparents.

“I don’t remember a lot about foster care, but I definitely knew that we had been taken from our biological mom and then you just think you’re going to go back to her,” she wrote. “[Me and my siblings] were very fortunate that we actually got to stay with our siblings because a lot of the time you either get regrouped from home to home to home or you and your siblings get split up.”

Biles fell in love with gymnastics “by accident,” or better said after a serendipitous encounter with the equipment used in the sport that would help her reach for the stars. Namely, as part of the daycare program she attended when she was just 6, they were supposed to go on a trip to a farm, but after the weather went bad, they were taken to a tumbling gym instead.

Recently, USA Gymnastics announced that Biles is ready to return to gymnastics. She is scheduled to compete at the 2023 US Classic in August, and fans are looking forward to see her compete again.

In April and May 2023, Biles wed NFL player Jonathan Owens in two separate ceremonies. They had a simple civil wedding in the US and the following month they flew to Cabo, San Lucas. They wed with their closest family and friends in attendance.

Following the wedding, the couple moved into their Houston home of modern, minimalist looks. The house, which Biles both back in 2019 for $2 million features a modest black-and-white interior, a modest-sized kitchen, a spacious and homey living room, a gorgeous L-shaped pool, and a backyard table set featuring swings as its chairs.

This however, isn’t what her parents would choose because the home resembles ‘an LA home but in Houston.’ According to the athlete, whenever her parents visit, they tell their daughter it’s not the type of home they would choose. But then Biles reminds them that she loves how her house looks like.

What’s most, the couple is now building another home for themselves.

Biles is still very active as a gymnast and is set to win more medals and set new records.

Robert Irwin gets bitten in the face by same species snake which attacked late sad Steve Irwin

0

Late Steve Irwin’s children, Bindi and Robert, followed into their father’s footsteps and although many say they have big shoes to fill, they are both doing extraordinary job keeping their dad’s legacy alive.

The love they feel for the animals is enormous and their efforts to preserve different species is effortless.

Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter star and one of the most famous conservationists and wildlife experts died aged 44 in what is described a freak accident. He was pierced in the chest by a stingray barb while filming in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

“…Even if we’d been able to get him into an emergency ward at that moment we probably wouldn’t have been able to save him, because the damage to his heart was massive. As we’re motoring back I’m screaming at one of the other crew in the boat to put their hand over the wound and we’re saying to him things like, ‘Think of your kids, Steve, hang on, hang on.’ He just sort of calmly looked up at me and said, ‘I’m dying.’ And that was the last thing he said,” one of the underwater cameramen tragically recalled.

Today, his wife Terri, and the children run the Australia Zoo.

Recently, Robert uploaded an old footage of his late father’s face being bit by a python snake along with another video of himself being bitten in the same manner by the same kind of snake.

“Déjà vu. Dad and me getting bitten by the same species of snake (carpet python) decades apart,” Robert wrote in the caption for the video. “I found this python on the side of a road, but as you can see, sometimes snake rescues don’t quite go to plan 😂”

Just like his late dad, Robert handled the bites with the same composure.

“I got a little too close, so he gave me a bite. They’ve got extremely sharp teeth like little needles,” he captioned the video.

A post shared by Robert Irwin (@robertirwinphotography)

During the devastating wildfire which struck their homeland, the Irwin family helped save tens of thousands of animals. They save approximately 800 koalas each year. Animals which are one of the most famous species of Australia and which hold a very special place in the hearts of the Irwins. In fact, one of the most famous photos of Steve is the one holding a koala in his arms.

Robert has made many appearances on American TV to promote Australia zoo and the work that he and his family do for wildlife. He resembles his late father in many ways.

Despite the time that has passed since his passing, wife Terri still misses him badly. Although he’s no longer around, she is forever grateful she had her ‘happily ever after’ with him.

“Every day is hard, and after 16 years, the sadness stops being a rock in your heart and starts walking beside you,” she opened up during an emotional interview on the program Anh’s Brush with Fame.

In September, Robert paid tribute to his dad on what was the anniversary of his death as well as Father’s Day in Australia. He made a post and wrote, “It’s Father’s Day today in Australia, and I am sending my love to those who are missing their dad today. I cherish all the good times with my dad and feel grateful to be able to keep his memory and legacy alive ❤️.”

Her brother wants to be her father but his wife says no

Life is unpredictable. The truth is that we never know what awaits us at the corner and what challenges we would face in the future.

What we know is that we are oftentimes forced to make decisions, no matter how hard and challenging that is.

A man shared a story of how he wanted to adopt his young sister following the passing of their parents, but that caused tensions in his relationship with his wife.

It was either his wife or his sister. To learn how he handled the situation and what decision she made read the text below.

“I [28M] have been married to my wife [28f] for 2 years. We do not have kids and we do not plan to. I have a little sister [11f]. Due to the age gap , I am more like another father than a brother.

“My father passed away from pancreatic cancer. There are 2 options for my sister: either I take her in or my uncle [dad’s brother]. So we asked her who she wanted and she chose me. Here is the problem, my wife and I decided that we did not want kids, so she does not want to adopt my sister especially since my uncle can.

“But my sister has no parents now and I want to make sure she is able to recover and be healthy and since she wants to be with me, I will not force her to be with our uncle. This is causing a lot of tension with my wife, things escalated and finally told her I am doing this whether she agrees or not, she can either accept it or we get divorced. We have not talked since then. What I can do in such situation?”

“I talked with my wife again. She still refused as she does not want kids. So we basically decided to go our separate ways. She said you really are choosing your sister over me. I told her I do not want to go into this discussion again but if that what you want to hear then fine. Yes my sister takes the priority now, I am choosing her over you.”

“This was our last conversation. I have been living with my sister for 1 week now. Being a single father-ish brother is definitely challenging but I am really enjoying it.”

“I got separated from my wife. I am taking care of my sister.”

School can be boring sometimes. I am sure you’ve fallen asleep during some of the classes you weren’t really fond of while a student. Well, to a girl named Mary Margaret that happened quite too often. The catholic teacher didn’t like her napping while she was teaching so she had some questions for Mary Margaret. But, she never expected to get such answers. Read the story below, you’re going to love it.

Little Mary Margaret was not the best student in Catholic School, usually she slept through the class.

One day her teacher, a Nun, called on her while she was sleeping.

“Tell me Mary Margaret, who created the universe?”

When Mary Margaret didn’t stir, little Johnny who was her friend sitting behind her, took his pencil and jabbed her in the rear.

“God Almighty!” shouted Mary Margaret.

The Nun said, “Very good” and continued teaching her class.

A little later the Nun asked Mary Margaret, “Who is our Lord and Savior?”

But Mary didn’t stir from her slumber.

Once again, Johnny came to her rescue and stuck Mary Margaret in the rear.

“Jesus Christ!!!” shouted Mary Margaret, and the Nun once again said, “Very good,” and Mary Margaret fell back asleep.

The Nun asked her a third question…”What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?”

Again, Johnny came to the rescue.

This time Mary Margaret jumped up and shouted, “If you stick that damn thing in me one more time, I’ll break it in half!”

The nun fainted…

Priest and nun stay overnight in a tiny cabin

Being married means making compromises every now and then because the truth is that every marriage has its ups and downs.

No matter how much they love each other, most partners out there have differences and the story below is the perfect illustration of that. Make sure you read it until the end.

A priest and a nun were lost in a blizzard. After a while, they came upon a small cabin.

Being exhausted, they prepared to go to sleep. There was a stack of blankets and a sleeping bag on the floor – but only one bed.
Being a gentleman, the priest said, “Sister, you sleep on the bed. I’ll sleep on the floor in the sleeping bag.”

Just as he got zipped up in the bag and was beginning to fall asleep, the nun said “Father, I’m cold.”

He unzipped the sleeping bag, got up, got a blanket and put it on her.

Once again, he got into the sleeping bag, zipped it up and started to drift off to sleep when the nun once again said, “Father, I’m still very cold.”

He unzipped the bag, got up again, put another blanket on her and got into the sleeping bag once again. Just as his eyes closed, she said, “Father, I’m sooooo cold.”

This time, he remained there, giving the woman a wink and a smile, then said, “Sister, I have an idea. We’re out here in the wilderness where no one will ever know what happened. Let’s pretend we’re married.”

The nun purred, “Sounds good to me.”

To which the priest yelled out, “Okay then – get up and get your own stupid blanket!”

Oh the beauty of marriage!
