A few days before their wedding, Alex Voutsinas and Donna Balzano of Boynton Beach, Florida, were looking through old photos to display at their reception. Donna found a Polaroid of her first visit to Walt Disney World, when she was five years old. Alex noticed a man in the background who looked awfully familiar--his own father, pushing a stroller. Who was in the stroller? Alex! It was the couples' first photo together, snapped 15 years before by kellie

Amityville horror. The first time that picture was shown was on the Merv Griffin show back in '79. It was discovered 3 years after it was taken. Gene Campbell, (a professional photographer) was brought into the house in 1976 when the Warrens went in with their team. He set up an automatic camera on the 2nd floor landing that shot off infrared film shots throughout the night. There were many rolls of film with nothing on them, except one picture by rhonda

“Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars — points of light and reason… And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason by claudia

Stuart Lewis-Evans was an up and coming racing driver and good friend of the young Stirling Moss, this image was taken in September 1953 when Stuart was just 23 years old and it shows him unloading his Cooper 500 Formula 3 racing car at the Crystal Palace race circuit in South London – from the roof of a Series 1 Land Rover. Interestingly, Land Rover was only 5 years old at the time but as you can see – people had already begun finding novel uses for them. by stephanii

"A wealthy, single socialite, Edith was 36 years old when she boarded the Titanic.  On board she befriended a 59 year old wife and mother named Caroline Brown.    The two women were among the throng trying to reach a lifeboat as the Titanic sank.  When only one space remained, Edith pushed Caroline forward saying “You go first, you have children waiting at home.”    Edith was one of four first class women to perish in the sinking of the Titanic. by tabitha

when I was in France (which i still have a lot to post) I was inspired by their breakfast set up. The table had recycled wine bottles filled with all kinds of juices. I thought that was amazing, so I filled a couple with orange juice and almond milk. If you were having a brunch, you could use wine bottles and fill them up with pineapple juice, orange juice, iced coffee, apple juice, and milk. by chrystal

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

How many of us knew from a very young age we were Witches? Most Witches know from a young age that they are a Witch, they have a deep sense of Nature, of the Moon, knowing that there is a Goddess. Most think they are the only ones who feel this way until they grow up and realize that it is an actual religion. Then you realize this is how it was in the beginning, the way it used to be in the days of old, before   barbaric Monothiestic religions tried to wipe it out. by Gloria Garcia
