Do you fart in bed? If so have a read of this!

in Uncategorized

Do you fart in bed ? If this story doesn’t make you cry for laughing so hard, let me know and I’ll pray for you.

This is a story about a couple who had been happily married for years, the only friction in their marriage was the husbands habit of farting loudly every morning when he awoke the noise would wake his wife and the smell would make her eyes water and make her gasp for air.

Every morning she would plead with him to stop ripping them off because it was making her sick.

He told her he couldn’t stop it and that it was perfectly natural. She told him to see a doctor, she was concerned that one day he would blow his guts out. The years went by and he continued to rip them out.

Then one Christmas day morning, as she was preparing the turkey for dinner and he was upstairs sound asleep, she looked at the innards, neck, gizzard, liver and all the spare parts, and a malicious thought came to her.

She took the bowl and went upstairs where her husband was sound asleep and, gently pulling the bed covers back, she pulled back the elastic waistband of his underpants and emptied the bowl of turkey guts into his shorts.

Sometime later she heard her husband waken with his usual trumpeting which was followed by a blood curdling scream and the sound of frantic footsteps as he ran into the bath room.

The wife could hardly control herself as she rolled on the floor laughing, tears in her eyes! After years of torture she reckoned she had got him back pretty good.

About twenty minutes later, her husband came downstairs in his blood stained underpants with a look of horror on his face.

She bit her lip as she asked him what was the matter. He said, Honey you were right all these years you have warned me and I didn’t listen to you. What do you mean? asked his wife.

Well, you always told me that one day I would end up farting my guts out, and today it finally happened, but by the grace of god, some Vaseline and two fingers.

I think I got most of them back in……………

These Popular Tea Brands Contain Hazardously High Levels of Pesticides!

in Uncategorized

A study has found that a number if leading tea bags brand contain  hazardously high levels of pesticides.

Tea is generally perceived to be a healthier source of caffeine other than coffee, soda or energy drinks.

However, traditional tea brand names have actually been revealed to contain dangerous levels of hazardous substances.

Apart from high levels of pesticides, they also contain dangerous amounts of fluoride, and artificial active ingredients, including flavors and GMO’s.

The levels found in these products are so high that they are presumed hazardous for ingestion.

Like the majority of most items, not all tea is produced equal.

Many teas are not washed before being dried, therefore non-organic teas can include pesticide residues.

High levels of pesticides found in tea bags

Some tea brands (natural or totally pesticide free) have just recently been found to contain dangerous levels of pesticides.

The chemicals in question include DDE (a metabolite of DDT), heptachlor epoxide, permethrin, and acetamiprid.

These toxic pesticides are labeled carcinogenic and have been found to interrupt the proper function of the endocrine system, health concerns that are worth paying attention to!

Despite the incredible risk, testing completed by CBC’s marketplace found that half of the teas tested contained more than one chemical.

You may find it hard to believe, but one brand actually contained residues of 22 different pesticides!

Buying organic doesn’t necessarily protect you either!

A study revealed: “The organic teas had significantly higher levels of lead contamination if left steeping for more than 15 minutes than the regular teas. Otherwise, there was no significant difference in levels of contaminants between organic teas and regular off the shelf teas.”

Not only should we concern ourselves with pesticide residue on the tea leaves, but even the bags themselves can bring a host of problems.

Mesh style tea bags and plastic tea bags run the risk of leaking toxic chemicals into your tea due to the extreme heat.

Perhaps similar to the concerns that have come to light in relation to leaving a plastic water bottle in a hot car.

CBC Marketplace testing revealed that the only safest tea to consume, containing no pesticide, was Red Rose Orange Pekoe.

While they also confirmed that the products are all grown and harvested following sustainable practices.

Nine Teas That Failed Are listed Below:

– King Cole: Orange Pekoe

– Lipton: Pure Green Tea

– Lipton: Yellow Label Black Tea

– No Name: Black Tea

– Signal: Orange Pekoe

– Tetley: Green Tea

– Twinings: Earl Grey

– Uncle Lee’s Legends of China: Green Tea

– Uncle Lee’s Legends of China: Jasmine Green Tea

Bride reaches alter and reads out cheating fiance’s texts instead of their vows.

in Uncategorized

Cheating is possibly the most hurtful thing you can experience while in a relationship.

Let’s be honest, nobody can be left anything but crushed by the sheer disloyalty of someone who behaves this way.

Which is often the reason why its satisfying when they get caught out.

There’s one articular reason why this woman had a huge reaction when she got her revenger on the day of her weeding. 

She disclosed to her story on  makes happens to make quite an interesting read …

Casey, explains how she had been in a relationship with her soon to be husband, Alex, for six years.

She writes: “This was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, instead, I knew it was the end of my dream relationship and everyone was going to witness it.”

“I felt he was The One instantly. Our families became friends, our lives were entwined, and I believed we’d live happily ever after.”

However, one night before they were about to get married it transpired that Alex had a hidden side to him.

It all began when Casey started to receive a series of screenshots via email.

The message read: “I wouldn’t marry him. Will you?

All the screenshots included a text message conversation that occurred between Alex and a different woman. There were even photographs of him with the other woman, according to Casey.

“The texts were dated from months to only days before. There was no questioning the legitimacy of these messages. I just knew,” Casey said.

However, in spite of the ongoing discoveries of Alex’s disloyalty, Casey wasn’t prepared to unexpectedly drop the wedding plans.

She explains: “How could I cancel when everyone had already traveled to be there and everything was paid for?”

Obviously, in the meantime she was not really prepared to let the man she thought was her life partner escape that easy.

The following day, she kept her cool as she put on a courageous face.

She didn’t inform Alex about the messages and proceeded down the aisle as normal.

Finally, when she reached the alter she decided to claim her revenge.

“There will be no wedding today,” she told the crowd. “It seems Alex is not who I thought he was.”

Evidently, Alex went to hold her hands, that’s when Casey moved her blossoms to uncover she had her cell with her.

That was the moment she began reading out each of the messages she had received.

“With each word, more color left Alex’s face.”

I let my weeping eyes rise and meet his, and he had not one thing to say. He stalked out of the church with his best man trailing behind him. His family looked on, horrified.”

Casey agrees it was exactly a comfortable scene for the wedding party and guests.

We can only imagine how much effort it took to follow through with her plan, she did confirm she had “one hell of a party” that night.

I you would have done the same as Casey then please SHARE this story with others on Facebook.

Romaine lettuce warning: 32 people in 11 states ill from E.Coli outbreak

in Uncategorized

Americans should refrain from eating any romaine lettuce the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned on Tuesday.

The following alert comes just two days before Thanksgiving as following a new E. coli outbreak .

The CC also state that consumers should throw out any romaine lettuce, and retailers and restaurants should not sell or serve it.

At least 32 people in 11 states have become sick from the same strain of E. coli in the outbreak.

The illnesses began in October and at least 13 people have hospitalised since including one with a kind of kidney failure, according to the CDC said.

Thankfully no fatalities have been reported, and no recalls have been issued.

U.S. consumers should avoid all types of romaine lettuce including salad mixes if they are unsure whether it includes romaine, according to the CDC.

The agency also asks Americans to clean refrigerators where the lettuce was being stored.

In a statement the CC said, ”Consumers who have any type of romaine lettuce in their home should not eat it and should throw it away, even if some of it was eaten and no one has gotten sick.”

No common source of the contaminated lettuce has been identified, the CDC said, but federal health officials have begun investigating.

According to the CDC, the strain of E. coli had “same DNA fingerprint” as an outbreak tied to leafy greens in the United States and romaine in Canada late last year.

The outbreak caused a fatality for one person and infected 25 in 15 states.

The outbreak however is not related to an E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce from earlier this year – which took five people’s lives and sickened 210 in 36 states – the CDC said.

“This isn’t the first romaine outbreak we have seen in the recent past, and we will continue to take steps to identify the root causes of these events and take action to prevent future outbreaks,” U.S. Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said.

Additionally, 18 people in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec have also been sickened by the same E. coli strain.

In California ten cases have been reported which is the state with the highest number of sick people.

Seven were identified in Michigan. Other states that reported cases are Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio and Wisconsin.

“Ill people reported eating different types of romaine lettuce in several restaurants and at home,” health officials said.

People will get sick an average of three to four days after eating the contaminated lettuce, the agency added.

Symptoms include “severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting,” among others, but most people who have fallen ill get better within a week, according to the CDC.

Up to 10 percent of patients can develop hemolytic uremic syndrome, though, the CDC said. The “potentially life-threatening complication” can lead to kidney failure.

Health experts issue warning after Infants suffer poisoning from honey-filled pacifiers.

in Uncategorized

After several infants were hospitalised and treated for botulism The U.S Food and Drugs Administration warns against using honey filled pacifiers.

Although each of the products used were purchased in Mexico,  the FDA have warned that they are easily available to purchase online.

The government agency requested all retailers to crease selling the products, and explained that honey is not suitable for children younger than 12 months old.

Honey might contain bacteria that produce the toxin in the intestine of infants that consume it, according to health officials.

Botulism is a serious illness which is caused by a toxin that attacks the body’s nerves.

The toxin can cause difficulty breathing, paralysis, and even death.

Health Canada’s warning.

On Health Canada’s website they also warn that giving honey to children under he age of one can lead to infant botulis.

They also strongly advise against adding it to pacifiers, formula, milk or even water.

It explains that infant botulism is a “rare but serious form of food poisoning,” in Canada, honey is the only food that has been linked to the illness.

Symptoms of infant botulism can vary from constipation, weak cries, weak muscles, trouble breathing and difficulty swallowing. In certain extreme cases, it can be life-threatening.

Infant botulism is caused by Clostridium botulinum spores, which are found in honey.

When an infant ingests honey, bacteria from these spores can grow and produce toxins that could lead to paralysis,” Health Canada’s website explains.

By the time children are 12 months old, children can have honey because they’ve developed bacteria in their intestines to protect them.

In recent years Texas has reported seven to eight cases of infant botulism annually. Ten confirmed, or suspected, cases have been reported in 2018.

Parents should also avoid pacifiers containing any other food substance, because they could also pose a risk of botulism, DSHS said.

This Year’s John Lewis Christmas Advert Stars Elton John

in Uncategorized

Once the festive season rolls around there is always anticipation around the John Lewis Christmas Advert.. and it has finally arrived.

Every year the retailer brings its A-game with something to tug at our festive heart strings.

The legend ropes in Elton John just when you think there’s no way he could do any better.

John Lewis’s 2018 Christmas ad features the singer’s ‘Your Song’, which brings viewers through his glittering career, centring on Sir Reginald’s noteworthy gift of all: his piano.

A journey from the present moment backwards through Elton’s defining career moments takes us all the way back his grandmother gifting him the piano as a 4-year-old boy.

Imagine a four-year-old Elton racing down the stairs on Christmas morning, ripping open a grand piano and basting out a heartwarming tune.

That boy would become one of the greatest musicians of all time after receiving a gift that would bring joy to the rest of the world.

The singer said in a statement: “The John Lewis Christmas campaign has so many warm memories for me and my family.

“It’s been a lovely opportunity for me to reflect on my life in music and the incredible journey I have been on, and how first playing my grandmother’s piano marks the moment when music came into my life.

“The ad is absolutely fantastic and I’ve truly loved every minute of being a part of it.”

Having donated his £5 million fee to his charity, the Elton John Charitable Trust, Elton’s husband David Furnish admits that making the ad was a very emotional experience for the star.

He said: “I think Elton has enjoyed the process of making this tremendously.

“I think, you know, emotionally he is thinking about the journey he’s been on as an artist, and that moment, you know, when music came into his life at a very young age when he was encouraged by his mother and his grandmother with his piano.

The John Lewis Christmas campaign is an iconic part of Christmas now and has had so many warm memories and associations for us, with all of our Christmases, so to be asked to be part of that was a huge honour.

Seeing the accuracy, and the work that has been put into to creating everything, the attention to detail is fantastic, so it is very exciting to see, it is like taking a step back in time.”

It’s also the first time since the 1950s that pianos have been out on the shop floor at John Lewis, which is another moving touch – Christmas is all about nostalgia, after all.

Customer Director Craig Inglis said: “The ad tells the story of why Elton’s piano was more than just a gift and we hope to remind customers of that special moment when they’ve given a gift at Christmas time that they know will be treasured forever.”

 A review of his career, before he’s expected to appear on one final world tour in 2019 – and before Rocketman which documents Elton’s life, hits cinemas next summer.

Take a look at the advert in the video clip below:

93-Yr-Old Veteran Sleeps In Car After Fleeing Wildfire, Then Couple Says ‘You’re Coming With Us’

in Uncategorized

So many families have been left stranded and helpless following the California wildfires.

93 year old World War II veteran Lee Brundige, is still none the wiser if his house is intact after his hometown in Paradise, California, was scorched by the Camp Fire.

Lee,lives alone so fled his home making it to a parking lot close by town.

There he also met other evacuees — along with a thoughtful woman who was handing out hamburgers to people.

Tracy Grant offered Lee some food,however he decided not to accept.

Instead he instructed her to save it for someone else who could do with it more.

As the air quality in the parking lot got worse, the sheriff’s deputies instructed people to leave; while the area began filling with smoke.

Tracy checked with Lee if he had somewhere else to go. At that point he was essentially homeless but claimed he could always just sleep in his car.

Tracy couldn’t bear the thought of leaving him to fend for himself, or even be taken advantage of by a stranger.

So Tracy asked Lee if he would like to her home to stay with her, her boyfriend Josh Fox.

Lee turned down her offer again but Tracy persisted as she didn’t want to give up.

A remarkable act of kindness followed— in the middle of  such disaster that’s touching hearts all over the country.
