How cute and fantastic is this?!

clem-and-millie-mintzToday is a very special day for this lovely couple as they are celebrating their 80th wedding anniversary in their hometown of Parry Sound. Millie is 95 years old and Clem is 100 — they met in Toronto and marries when Millie was only 15!

They have now been recognized as having the longest marriage in Canada. Such a milestone that “people have to look two or three times at the [certificate] and read it again,” their grandson said.

Millie now has Alzheimer’s disease, but Clem still spends all day with her talking to her and playing music at Belvedere Heights home. Now that is true love!

20140922-114738-42458548.jpgLillian Weber, from Iowa, makes a dress for a small child in Africa every single day!

More than 840 dresses have been make by Lillian in the last 2 years & her goal is to make 150 more before next May! Why? Cause making her 1000 dresses on her 100th birthday seems like a great accomplishment, no?! And she is turning 100 at the beginning of May!

It only takes Lillian 1/2 a day now to make these cute dresses, with a break midday. “I could probably make 2 a day, but I enjoy just doing the one. It’s just one of those things I guess. I learnt how to do it and then I thought why not put it to good use?!”

Lillian donates the dresses to Little Dresses for Africa, who then distributes them to orphanages, churches and schools in 47 countries in Africa, as well as to children in need in countries like Haiti, Honduras, Thailand, Mexico and even parts of the United States.

Kudos Lillian!!

If you thought you couldn’t love Pharrell’s “Happy” any more than you already do, check out this adorable video.

Those are the kids from Deaf Film Camp at upstate New York’s Camp Mark Seven performing the song in sign language. Deaf Film Camp, launched last year, teaches screenwriting, directing, acting, effects and cinematography to deaf campers. What an amazing opportunity for the kids & this is an amazing video showing that they are a talented and HAPPY group!

Isn’t great?!

You could be winning a trip to Berlin just by giving this guy a makeover! Ever since the Trivago Guy showed up on our big tv screens, the internet has been abuzz about his look…

trivagoguypic.jpg.size.xxlarge.promoWhy isn’t the pitch man for the world’s largest hotel search website wearing a belt? Why doesn’t he shave? Why does he look so dishevelled?

The buzz reached a crescendo this summer when the ads aired during the World Cup, with everyone from Rolling Stone Magazine to the Wall Street Journal weighing in. So now, thanks to Internet reaction to his beltless and too casual appearance,  the company has announced a Trivago Guy makeover contest, with the winner receiving a five-day trip to Berlin and a chance to watch the next commercial featuring the new and improved Trivago Guy.

HOW DO YOU WIN?! Post a photo of what outfit you’d like to see the Trivago Guy wearing on its Facebook contest page or via Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag #trivagoGuy.

The deadline is Aug. 24. Voting will begin on Aug. 28 on Facebook.

Sadly for Canadian fans, the contest is only open to U.S. residents… Do you have an american po box?! hahaha

OMG! I’d love for this to happen to me! I’d totally freak out at first, but this baby seal is so friendly! How adorable!

Wanting to play, this seal pup decided to join in the fun by hopping right onto the boards of two surfers off the coast of northern England!

The seal played with them for about an hour, looking like it was truly trying to learn the tough skill of balancing on a surf board! It looks like I’m not the only one who has trouble with that! Haha

“It kept sliding off,” one of the surfers, Matthew Stanley, told the BBC. “But every time you caught a wave it would surf in on the white water.” You can see the seal really surfing 1:40 in!

Amazing, no?!

Thanks to Hollywood movies, most of us have a false idea of what drowning looks like…

We are at the mid-point of summer; pools are the place to be, vacations are being planned — if you are going to be anywhere around the water, make sure to read this!

We all know that drownings can happen in seconds. Swimming lessons and pool fences are vital, but we also know that nothing beats adult supervision. However, even if you have your eyes on the kids, you may be watching for all the wrong things….

imagesThe “drowning” you’ve seen on the big screen is a movie myth. People sometimes yell, wave, and splash when they’re struggling in the water. But when someone’s truly about to drown, it looks completely different. It’s frightening how quiet it can be.

When a person’s really drowning, their body doesn’t want to waste energy screaming and splashing… instinct makes their arms stay down; they may look like they’re climbing a ladder or pawing at the water. They stay upright, eyes glassy with their head back so that their mouth can grasp at the air when it surfaces.

The scary fact is that you typically have 20 to 60 seconds to help them. That’s all.

Watch THIS VIDEO to see what it really looks like.

Keep your eyes on the kids this summer and remember that it’s the quiet, not the yelling, that you should be worried about!
