Elderly Man Abandoned By His Own Family On His Birthday, But These Strangers Wouldn’t Let Him Celebrate Alone

As young children, we are all taught to respect our elders, especially when they reside in our family tree.

One such elder was alone, seen setting up his own birthday celebration in a local restaurant in Boca del Rio, Mexico. Other guests were looking around curiously as they watched him set up a series of tables, hang streamers and lay down a series of birthday hats. All of which were intended for his children and grandchildren.

The man’s cellphone began to ring, and upon reading the messages he received, both his face and demeanor dropped. It was clear to everyone in the restaurant that he had received bad news.

Gwyneth Paltrow Is Raising Eyebrows After Advertising A “Vampire Repellent”

Leave it to Gwyneth Paltrow to find a new and confusing way to make headlines.

In the past we’ve shared warnings about her latest cookbook, which experts say could give you salmonella. But the actress and creator of lifestyle brand Goop has also made us scratch our heads with her line of New Age products and wellness treatments.

Goop has already advised their followers to “eliminate white foods,” and explained how eating “spirit truffles” can awaken your psychic powers. Other products promoted on Goop include wearable stickers that “re-balance the energy frequency in our bodies.”

All in all, the consumer advocacy group Truth in Advertising has singled out more than 50 claims made against Goop for misleading their customers. Odds are people will also have a few questions about the latest product to hit Goop’s online store:

Know any “psychic vampires” in your life? The new Psychic Vampire Repellent on Goop’s website promised to “banish bad vibes (and shield you from the people who may be causing them).” All for the low, low price of $30.

If you’re not rushing to buy a bottle already, wait until you see the ingredients list…

Adorable Shelter Kitten Uses Oldest Trick In The Book, Gets Adopted Instantly

A loving couple walked into a shelter with plans to adopt a kitten. They weren’t expecting this beautiful little fluffball would pull a fast one on them!

Meet little Luna!

This sweet princess kitten has been waiting for her perfect people.

‘Mad Pooper’ Terrorizing Colorado Town Given Enticing Offer By Charmin

Have you heard of the Mad Pooper yet? If not, get ready for a dump of information.

A woman in Colorado has been caught pooping on one family’s property as she goes for a jog. This isn’t a one-off incident, either. The family says this has happened at least seven times.

Cathy Budde, whose yard is the one being pooped on, says this feels intentional.

“I thought for sure she’s mortified, it’s an accident, she’ll go get a dog bag, clean it up and never run here again,” Budde told local news. “Not the case. Two other times we’ve caught her – caught her yesterday – she changed up her time a little bit because she knew I was watching.”

Budde says she’s even confronted the woman doing the defecating, but that didn’t deter her.

“So I come outside, and I’m like, ‘Are you serious?’ Are you really taking a poop right here in front of my kids?’ She’s like, ‘Yeah, sorry!’ I put a sign on the wall that’s like, ‘please, I’m begging you, please stop.'”

Budde has since added a sign to her yard, hoping it would really get the point across.

Budde says there’s public washrooms across the street from their house, so she doesn’t understand why her yard is being targeted.

“I haven’t come across anything like this in 35 years with the police department,” Lt. Howard Black said, calling this behavior bizarre. “It’s been unflipping-believable.”

In an attempt to get the Mad Pooper to turn herself in, Charmin toilet paper has given the criminal a crazy offer.

Trapped In The World Trade Center, Guide Dog Saved Dozens Of Lives

Michael Hingson has been blind since birth, and that means he’s relied on a lot of guide dogs.

These trained service animals are important tools that help the blind navigate our world, but they’re also just like any other dogs. They have their own personalities, and while some are serious, others are silly. When Hingson was given his fifth guide dog, he asked for a partner “who could focus.” And that’s just what he got.

His guide dog Roselle was with him on that fateful day in 2001, when terrorists crashed a pair of airplanes into the World Trade Center. Hingson was a sales manager for Quantum, and he was having a quiet day in his office on the 78th floor until he heard the crash.

“I heard a tremendous boom,” he remembers, “and the building started to shudder violently, before slowly tipping, leaning over 20 feet.” By the time it leaned back in place people were screaming and panicking.

Hingson’s coworkers realized there was a fire above, and there was debris falling into the office. “I had always paid attention to fire drills,” Hingson said, “and I knew to avoid the elevators, take the stairs and not to panic.” He told the rest of his office what to do, and in minutes they were heading downstairs.

During the next hour, Roselle proved just how well she could focus….

Frida The Legendary Rescue Dog That Has Saved A Dozen People Goes To Work In Mexico City

As rescuers scramble to save children trapped inside a collapsed school, one of the Mexican navy’s elite search and rescue teams suit up.

They put on their tactical vests, their special footwear and protective goggles, and climb onto the rubble in search of people trapped underneath the building. They look cute, but this team of dogs are the best in the business when it comes to finding people after natural disasters.

After Mexico was hit by a 7.1 earthquake on Tuesday, more than 250 people were killed and many more were trapped in the dozens of buildings that collapsed. In Mexico City, the remains of the Enrique Rebsamen school became the site of a major rescue operation.

Frida, a seven-year-old Labrador who is one of the 15 dogs searching the ruins, became an unlikely hero of the crisis after Mexico’s navy shared photos of her on Twitter, along with details about her impressive career.

Trained as a search and rescue dog since she was just 2 months old, Frida has rescued 12 people and found 40 bodies following natural disasters across Mexico. She has even worked in neighboring countries like Ecuador.

But searching through the collapsed school is proving to be one of the toughest challenges in Frida’s career…

Mom And Son See The Car In Front Of Them, Immediately Run To The Cashier

Kids are far more observant than we give them credit for. They pick up on little things and put pieces together we never would have expected them to.

For Tara Routzong, she was absolutely stunned when her son, Landon, made a connection she never thought he would.

Tara and Landon were sitting in the Chick-fil-A drive-thru in Alabama, waiting to order lunch, when Landon spotted the license plate ahead of them. Instead of an Alabama plate, it was all the way from Florida. It’s about an 8-hour drive from Central Florida to Alabama, so both Tara and Landon were a little surprised to see the plate so far from its home.

Then something clicked in Landon that made him spring into action.

Dog Lovers Everywhere Owe Abe Lincoln A Big Thank You

What’s in a name? Every name has a history and a beginning. Meanings are often adapted and changed over decades, but they all started somewhere.

In the 1800s, it was considered a mark of status to keep an animal as a pet and nothing else. For those less fortunate, if you owned animals they all served a purpose, whether for work, food, dairy, or pest control.

Lincoln & FidoCoastal Canine Magazine

Abraham Lincoln who had strong feelings about animal welfare, adopted his beloved dog Fido in roughly 1855, after he had become a successful lawyer in Springfield, Illinois. Having this dog toddle along beside him on his walks was a pure symbol of how Honest Abe had truly climbed the status ladder.

It was in part because of his love for all living things that made him a man of such empathy and compassion. There was even a children’s book written about Lincoln’s love for animals.

Vegbooks

When Lincoln took the White House he left his beloved dog Fido with friends, but he did leave them with a set of rules that they had to abide by while looking after him. The rules were rather strange, but they do explain why he didn’t bring the dog with him to Washington.

10 Genius Uses For Vaseline That Will Make You Want To Try Them All

Vaseline got its start when Robert Chesebrough got wind that oil workers had been using an unrefined form of petroleum jelly to heal wounded and burnt skin.

After figuring out how to refine it into a transparent gel, he patented Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in 1865. Since then, we’ve been using it for everything from preventing diaper rash to making our very own lip balm!

Dry off your razor and then rub each blade with Vaseline. Make sure they are completely dry after you wipe the Vaseline off so that your razor doesn’t rust!

Rub some onto a cotton pad and gently swipe away your makeup. It will remove false eyelash glue and even waterproof mascara!

Who doesn’t love a good lip balm? If you’re like me, you probably lose them before the tube is finished.

Rather than spending money on buying new ones, why not make your own with some tasty skittles and vaseline?

16 Hacks That Will Almost Make Your Cat Love You

Having a cat is a lot of work.

They don’t really care about anything but themselves? And they can also cost a lot of money with all the food, toys, and damaged furniture.

You can sleep a little easier tonight knowing there are ways to combat most of the problems that are associated with owning a cat. Except for their attitude. I can’t change that for you.

If there’s a cabinet you never use, make it the litterbox home! Take the panel out of the door and add some curtains. A little privacy for the cat, a little less stink for you!

You can buy small patches of fake grass, or use the real stuff if you want to take care of it, so that your cat has a taste of the outdoors while still being inside!

Cats love looking out windows, and sometimes the best view is too high up. You can use small floating shelves to build a little staircase to the higher spots so your cat doesn’t injure themselves trying to jump up.

If you have an old bookshelf hanging around, cut holes in the shelves to make it like a little playground for your cat! Adding carpet to the levels makes it extra fun.

Using fabric and velcro, make your cat a tiny hammock underneath a coffee table!

Family Gives Heartbreaking Update About Baby Whose Mother Gave Birth In A Coma

In April, 37-year-old Carrie DeKlyen was diagnosed with gliobastoma, an aggressive cancerous tumor that affects the brain and spinal cord.

A mom of five, Carrie made the choice to fight the cancer and enrolled in a clinical trial at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. That’s when she received another news that scared her more than death – she was pregnant.

DeKlyen Family

Doctor’s told Carrie that the pregnancy would need to be terminated if she wanted to participate in the trial. However, the thought of losing the baby didn’t sit well with Carrie. She decided to forgo the trial and chemotherapy treatments so she could carry her child to full term.

DeKlyen Family

“The doctor said if you don’t terminate this baby, Carrie, you will die,” Carrie’s husband Nick told People. “But it was Carrie’s decision and I said ‘What do you want to do?’ She said, ‘We’re keeping it.’”

DeKlyen Family

In August, People reported that despite undergoing four major brain surgeries, Carrie’s condition had deteriorated into a “vegetative state” and she was put on life support so the baby can remain healthy until it can be delivered.

7 weeks after Carrie lost consciousness, her husband Nick announced the birth of their sixth child on Wednesday and shared an update on his fighter wife’s health.
