This would be the point where one may say that the owner was awful for bringing the cat to the ACC…. BUT IT DIDN’T START THERE!! How SAMANTHA’S previous owner treated her before she was DUMPED was just as bad. This 4 year old had been bleeding vaginally by angelica

Thank you to whoever posted this. I really needed this today. I was depressed for most of last school year, and I thought it went away and I thought I was getting better, but the last few weeks I've been having trouble finding a reason to keep going. And maybe the reason isn't because I'm going to be great someday, maybe it's because someone needs me right now. And I think that's really uplifting by imelda

That time I made Raweos, because Friday feels kinda chocolaty! Sharing some new and (hopefully) exciting recipes this weekend, but if you're interested in the one I used to make these particular #raw, #plantbased refined #sugarfree & utterly delish treats, check out beautiful @talinegabriel's #hippielane app✌️ Mama+baby yoga today was super gentle & much needed. I was late on account of "saving" a beetle from the footpath (Louie & Lillian were concerned for his safety)... and then on my way to the clinic with Lillian I spotted a young gull who I suspected might be injured. I want to thank Monika (?) at @djurambulansenstockholm for taking my call and referring me onto a local bird expert (still haven't managed to get through, but have left a message @amyspieceofcake xx). Tonight I need to meditate, start getting our place ready to be photographed & get onto sending out birth announcements (yeah, I know!), but before signing off I just want to send some love to ALL the volunteers out there who work tirelessly to improve the lives of other beings, animal or human❤️. I'm in awe of your selflessness and truly thankful that people like you exist. Thanks for the support on my last two posts, all! And for those interested in #missmarzipan95k, see previous posts for deets. And do visit my friends @heavenlynnhealthy @greensmoothiegourmet and @elavegan for more celebration (love you, girls) Loads of weekend love from Stockholm to wherever you are Marisa xx by rebecca2

wow. I just realized how accurate this was and because I am being adhd right now it got me to thinking about plot lines where the main character is able to see the death date of every single person she meets, when she meets them, just by looking at them. I really wanted to read that story but anyway, I'm getting off topic. This was a sort of (really) eye-opening post. by estela

I never knew you could be so disappointed in another human being. Just when you get to the point where there's not much else to be disappointed about in someone then bam they do something else to show there is really no end to that person's failure as a human. You are truly a despicable failure at everything you do. Will this ever cease to amaze me. Why am I surprised? Because I thought maybe there was a speck of that person you used to be or at least what we thought you were but no. Where did y by Mrspacman2000

I got this at Newport Tattoo in Newport Beach, CA a couple months ago. The artist is Kareem Masarani, and he is amazing. I was pretty nervous because this was my first tattoo (I have 2) and I usually pass out when I get shots. But it didn’t hurt a bit and I actually almost fell asleep. It’s for my grandfather who worked on ships for a living and he passed away. He was a father to me and I felt I needed to make some sort of tribute. by molly

I was never confident that a jury comprised almost exclusively of white women would convict George Zimmerman of second-degree murder, but last night’s not guilty verdict still left me breathless. I had wanted to believe that my worst fears weren’t true, that I am not living in a country where a man can get away with killing a seventeen-year-old child because that child is black.

Beware images are disturbing : In 2003, 84-year old Herta Bothe (brutal guard at Bergen-Belsen, who was released from imprisonment in 1951 as an act of leniency by the British government) was interviewed under her married name, Lange. Replying to one question, she said: "What do you mean, ". . . made a mistake?" No, I'm not quite sure I should answer that. Did I make a mistake?

This would be a fun way to expand my creativity because I not only get to do a fun craft, but also personalize it into something meaningful. What would be needed would be a pillow, water-proof/ non-washable paint, and a stencil.

Restoring teak furniture  What You Need:  Rubber Gloves  Two Brushes  Medium Grit Sandpaper  Soft Bristle Brush or Steel Wool  TSP (a cleaning agent) and a bucket of warm water  Teak Oil  Polyurethane    Instructions:    Clean: If you are dealing with teak turned old and grey you will be surprised at how this step alone will begin to transform your piece. Using a soft bristle brush or steel wool, thoroughly scrub the wood with warm water and a detergent like TSP. This gets rid of the oxidation and dirt that has built up and given the wood its silvery patina. Depending on the state of your teak this step can take quite a while and require some serious arm work. If you're starting out with some really weathered teak you will begin to see some serious transformation here as the wood's true color starts to make its appearance.    Sand: You'll need to get some medium grit sanding blocks and sand your teak by hand to even out the top layer of wood. Try to get the color as even as possible.    Dry Time: If you're like me this is the hardest part. I am so impatient that once I start I just want to keep going till it's finished, but I assure you this step is really important. Your newly cleaned teak needs a few days of drying time so that the oil you will put on in the next step can fully saturate deep into the wood's pores.    Oil: These next two steps are very toxic so make sure you are in a well ventilated area before you start applying these chemicals. Now that the wood is good and dry you are ready to apply the oil. Go get some good quality Teak Oil, a brush and some rubber gloves and lightly brush the oil over all surfaces three times each. You must do this a minimum of four rounds with an hour in-between allowing time for the oil to fully saturate the wood. Apply as many times as needed until you get the desired color of wood.    Seal: At this time your teak should be looking as good as new. After all the work you've put in you may be tempted to call it quits, but you still have one more step. You have only restored the teak's natural oil at this point but haven't protected it from further damage. That's where the polyurethane comes in to seal in the oil and protect the surface. Paint on a few coats and let dry for a few days, and you'll be ready to sit back, relax and enjoy your newly restored Teak furniture.    Store: Going from Los Angeles to Seattle I completely failed to do this step last winter so I thought I would throw it in. I used to live outside and never had to give a second thought to my outdoor furniture so upon moving to this new climate I was a bit stubborn and naive about the correct upkeep. So if you don't live somewhere that has year round summer then you should either cover your furniture or bring it into an unheated garage. I say unheated because temperature changes and excess heat can crack your wood.      MORE TEAK RESTORATION ON APARTMENT THERAPY:  How To Care For Teak Furniture by babyblu3

World's Tallest Sand Castle Ed Jarrett built the world’s tallest sand castle this year in Connecticut, but this isn't his first time. In 2003, he first erected the world’s tallest sand castle, then broke his own record in 2007. This summer, he's back with a 37-foot, 10-inch monstrosity. About 1,500 volunteers used 1.6 million pounds of sand to build the palace. They began work April 1 and finished May 20. There was one major hitch: The castle was supposed to be even bigger, but a bluebird grazed by Makia55

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
