This Person’s Heartfelt Goodbye To Their Dog Will Bring You To Tears

How do you even begin to say goodbye to a best friend? As a dog owner, I try not to think about it. The idea alone turns me into a blubbery mess…and my dog is only four years old! Among other wonderful things, The Animal Rescue Site allows pet owners to share their heartwarming rescue stories, and recently one particular tale has us in tears. Told by Kris from Prestonsburg, Kentucky, the semi-anonymous user talks about their recently passed pup named Jessie. Warning: You WILL need a […]

This Cool Interactive Art Program Lets Everyone Become A Talented Artist

Growing up with two older brothers was hard enough, but having to deal with them being incredibly artistically inclined was arguably more frustrating. You see, I can’t draw a stick figure to save my life. Meanwhile, they were busting out beautiful self-portraits, complex abstract paintings, and striking still lifes like it was nothing. That’s why you can probably understand that any tool that makes me seem like a talented artist might appeal to me…enter Silk. The “interactive generative art” allows users to play with their cursor to […]

What This Man Does In The Dead Of Night Will Make You So, So Jealous

If there’s one thing I have to do before I die, it’s see the Northern Lights. The colorful phenomenon has amazed me since I was a little girl and my desire to see the lights in person has only grown over the years. But today, the precise way I want to see them has changed altogether. Sure, seeing the Aurora Borealis from the ground is fantastic on its own, but Spanish acrobatic paraglider pilot Horacio Llorens has just given me a new goal: paragliding in the Northern […]

He Parked His Car Along Lake Erie. When He Came Back, This Is What He Found…

If you think it’s cold where you are, you have no idea. That is, unless you live near Buffalo, NY. When Justin Yelen went into a restaurant to watch some sports and hang out with friends, he wasn’t expecting to find his car, which was parked along the shores of Lake Erie, looking like this when he went back to drive home. (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3”; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’)); […]

He Poured Epoxy All Over A Knife Block And Made Something Awesome For His Wife

When you first move in with someone, it’s not uncommon that you each have one of some things. As you grow together, certain pieces — furniture, kitchen appliances, etc. — are retired for bigger or more updated versions. That’s exactly what happened when maker1706 and his wife moved in. They bought a set of knives, but quickly outgrew the block that once housed them. So what’s one to do with the leftover hunk of wood? Well, this project is one option… This was the block he had […]

What She Does With Pie Crust Will Have You Running To The Store

I love making pies…but there are some drawbacks. Let’s talk about prep time: I spend hours making the filling, the crust, waiting for it to bake, and cleaning up all the dishes! And after all that, it takes me so long to finish eating a whole pie that it goes bad before I get through it. It’s really a disaster. So what’s a girl to do when she wants to have her pie and eat it, too? Well, I’ve found the answer to all my problems — […]

You Haven’t Had Pizza Until You’ve Tried It With Potatoes As The Crust

If the thought of biting into a savory slice of pizza makes your mouth water, I have a feeling we’d be great friends. I’m a thin crust girl, but that doesn’t mean I can’t get behind a deep-dish pie every now and then. Up until just a few days ago, though, I thought those were really the only two ways to enjoy a pizza…then I was introduced to this potato crust pizza. Get ready to seriously salivate. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Here’s what you need to know […]

You May Never Look At Cauliflower The Same Again When You See This Recipe

I’ve never been one for finding healthier versions of fatty, sugary, or just all-around unhealthy foods. I simply choose to exercise self-control — I’ll have a small order of french fries rather than going for the zucchini fry option. But when it comes to this recipe, I can’t really argue with the fact that the healthy version looks pretty darn tasty on its own. If you love pizza like most Americans do, but can’t restrain yourself from eating a whole pie in one sitting, this savory treat […]

This Boxer Walked Up To A Pair Of Shoes…Just Wait ‘Til You See What He Does!

Normally, when a dog comes across an unattended pair of shoes, they take the opportunity to tear them apart. I imagine all those foot smells are pretty enticing. But when this boxer’s mom told him to fetch her Crocs, rather than running off with them to nom on the irresistibly squishy insoles, he did something so hilarious. While it’s pretty well-known that Crocs are super comfortable, we had no idea that pups knew this to be true, too! But seriously, I could watch this on repeat all […]

This Little Girl Hasn’t Seen Her Mom Clearly Until This Very Heartwarming Moment

While I can’t remember the first time I saw my mother’s face, I imagine that it was a pretty beautiful moment. She is my light, the one who brought me into this world, and so much more. Three-month-old Tilly has had a hard time seeing since she was born. So when her parents finally got her glasses, you can imagine just how happy she was to see her mother and father clearly for the first time. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBP_ATF’); }); Thankfully, we don’t have to picture it […]
