Amazing Recovery Of Patrick The Pit Bull After He Was Dumped In A Trash Chute

An emaciated Pit Bull discovered at the bottom of a trash chute in Newark 3 years ago, moments before the trash compactor would have killed him, has made a miraculous recovery and now weighs a healthy 50lbs.
Rescued the day before St Patrick’s Day in 2011, Patrick as he was quickly named, weighed a shocking 19lbs and was on death’s doorstep when volunteers from the Associated Humane Societies took him to the emergency room at Garden State Veterinary Specialists. Source

011

While the trauma of being tied to a railing for seven days and then dumped in a bin has inevitably left emotional and physical scarring, those who know Patrick talk only of how loving and trusting he is.

02

Though understandably Patrick remains nervous around strangers.

03

Hospital staffers have chronicled his progress on their website and a Facebook page has garnered fans from around the world.

04

He’s received hundreds of emails, donations, gifts and letters from those inspired by his tale of survival.

5

His ribcage protruded, he weighed about 20 pounds – roughly 30 pounds less than average – and was covered in sores with parts of skin hanging off him, according to Patricia Smillie-Scavelli, Dr Scavelli’s wife and the administrator of the hospital.

4

‘Everyone thought that, you bring in an animal like that, that looks like it’s really just a corpse, you put it to sleep,’ Mrs Smillie-Scavelli said.

‘But of course, he looked up at you with those eyes, and you say: How can you give up on this dog? How can you, when he’s not giving up on life? So, we gave him that second chance, and he has just run with it, and thrived.’

3

After weeks of emergency measures that included a transfusion of three pints of dog blood, a special diet, medicine and physical therapy, Patrick began to gain weight and eat solid food.

Mini-Elite-Transparent Plastic Cord Holder

BY YOURS TRULY :)

Tooth doctors and/or Orthodontists and mortals who wear braces are very familiar with this “power chain or e-chain” material:

Repurposed your used e-chain plastic holder into a unique headphone cord holder.
The length of the extra cord of your headphone can be easily adjusted
to your preferred length from your pocket or purse to your ear.

Wow, this is way too cool! Isn’t it?
It’s very neat and classy looking with my 
iPhone.
It will look great too with iPod. 
Try it yourself :D
How about you guys, do you have any repurposed  items,
materials or products that you would like to share?

A Little Calvin In Every Child

A Little Calvin In Every Child was one of the first images on All That Is Interesting when we launched in 2010 and has remained one of the most popular. And it’s easy to see why: the hilarious mimicry of Calvin reminds us exactly why it’s great to be a kid.

This fascinatingly bizarre photograph garnered an even weirder amount of online attention, where it was featured in several conspiracy-oriented websites that claimed it was evidence of government manipulation of the weather.

The Town Where Everyone Wears A Gas Mask

10

One of our favorite articles in the archives, The Town Where Everyone Wears A Gas Mask details life in Miyakejima, Japan, where an active volcano had spewed poisonous gas for the last two decades. Rather than leave, the 3,000 inhabitants decided to wear gas masks 24/7 so they could remain on the island.

The Man Who Refused To Salute Hitler

The story of August Landmasser is amazing as it is tragic. Landmasser fell in love with a Jewish woman who, before they could marry, was sent to a concentration camp. Before he would be sent to a labor camp, this picture captured Landmasser refusing to partake in the Nazi salute during a public rally in 1936.

The Near-Extinction Of The American Bison

Once numbering in the hundreds of millions in the United States (that’s right, hundreds of millions), bison were hunted down to a mere thousand by 1890. Most of the story of how this happened can be inferred by the picture above.

In The Still Of The Night

Today’s Cafe Siesta is to wake up your memories and experience some random flashbacks… by simply closing your eyes :)

This was another mail that I received from a friend of mine…   A long one but WELL worth it…. I hope you all enjoy as much as I did.  

“In The Still Of The Night” — YOU’LL LOVE IT!!

and he said,

“I hate to admit it but I can remember all of these as I’m sure you will also. I remember these things…but I do it with very fond memories! When life was soooo much easier and slow. ”  

“Sometimes you will never know the true value of a MOMENT until it becomes a memory”

Although, I wasn’t born in this era… I find this song very awesome :)

In the Still of the Night – Fred Parris and The Satins

I remember that I loved to play with my walking dolls that were almost as tall as I was…  I had plates, cups and saucers made of papers that I created myself.
I enjoyed running around with my siblings…  They would bring me with them to a river bank where it was not allowed for children to play.  One day they sneaked out and brought me with them, I was only 5 years old back then and when my father found us there, Yay!  He scolded the big ones but he spared me… hehehe… Because he believed I was innocent :)
I watched Tom and Jerry, Sesame Street after school.  Favorite TV shows and series were Wild Wild West, Different Strokes, Bob Hopes…  hmmmm  I feel happy already while thinking of those things…  I even could smell the donuts that my mom used to bake! Yummmy!

Here are some pictures I was able to scan from one of my old albums… :)

Yes Guys! Memories to treasure back…  Like this kind of feeling…

Okay, you can begin now to spend some time to close your eyes and imagine how it was… :)   and then you can grab your favorite tea or coffee and savor it and enjoy it to the last drop :)

Cheers!

I won’t be able to be with my kids this Christmas but the memories and togetherness of making our Family Christmas Tree with them count the most.

The joy of making it and sharing thoughts on how to do it was already a Blissful Family Christmas.

A New Chapter Begins…

I feel great to tell everyone that I am now single.

Three years after my separation (2005), I have filed a marriage annulment (2008).

At long last this year 2013, last September 30, the court has decided and ordered that my marriage was null and void.

I am so happy as ever.

Happy because a new chapter begins in my life and I can move on forward.

Some of you may wonder and would ask me, “do you have any regrets at all?  Do you feel sad?

Well, honestly I do not have any regrets at all.  I have four beautiful, loving and responsible kids.  They are now all grown-ups and as a mother I am so fulfilled that I manage to put them all to school.  A year from now my first daughter, Maria Ahtalia will soon finish her Dentistry course and become a successful Dental Surgeon or Orthodontist.  My second daughter, Greta Garda will soon graduate in IT course 5 months from now to become a successful Digital Arts Designer. My third daughter, Tajah Jireh will soon to become a famous Fashion Designer, 3 years from now.  And my son, Picardo Leo, who is now in Secondary Schoool wanted to become the most wanted Architect one day.

I sounded so positive!  But that is most of mothers wished  for their children, aren’t we all?

Sad? Yes, there is a little sadness in a way that my marriage for 12 years did not work to  last.  But ending it, is the best thing to do and very smart move and I never and I won’t ever regret it.  I have the rest of my life now to look forward to and so I must make the most of it and feel thankful to my God in every moment as possible and ask His guidance and wisdom on how I take charge of my life and make a difference.

I believe that everytihnig happens for a reason.  I have a full life and I take these life challenges in a positive outlook. I move on with my life. I keep adjusting to needs and keeping all vital areas of my life in balance. I will continue to passionately pursue my mission or goal and I will never ever quit.

Life goes on and a new chapter begins. :)

 

Last week November 30… My kids and I went to go house hunting.  And we wished to get and own a Victorian kind of house in this beautiful Village and Resort Community to live by one day :)

Shake, Rattle & Roll Fun Ride
Riders feel like they are flying as they whirl, twirl and spin on this twisting, rotating fun ride.  It was fun all right, but it’s not my favorite. It was my first and last, hahaha. Anyways just look at these split-second shots and enjoy the ride.

This was such a terrible ride.  I had mixed emotion with it.  I had fun and adventure but definitely I won’t do it again.

Chuppy, The Most Photogenic Dog

Happy-happy

The 18-year-old photographer Jessica Trinh 

shared her dog Chuppy’s photos with us. This lovely golden retriever is so adorable. In addition to great photography, I believe it is because of the harmonious relationship between Jessica and Chuppy, otherwise it is very difficult to shoot such a fond and dynamic photo.

La Rochelle (French pronunciation: ​[la ʁɔ.ʃɛl]) is a city in western France and a seaport on the Bay of Biscay, a part of the Atlantic Ocean. It is the capital of the Charente-Maritime department.

The city is connected to the Île de Ré by a 2.9 km (1.8 mi) bridge completed on 19 May 1988. Its harbour opens into a protected strait, the Pertuis d’Antioche.

Shape Of My Heart

u-torrent

 

Shape Of My Heart is the Music Passion entry of Jaycee68 for February Edition: HEART

It was also the THEME SONG from the Movie: Leon The Professional

  •  

Jaycee mentioned in her post that she “Love the movie and Adore Jean Reno”  :)

Well I got so curious about it because Natalie Portman, my favorite actress was the leading lady of the said film.

I looked for it in the internet and downloaded it.  I watched it and Jaycee was right, it was really a brilliant film.  I enjoyed watching it.

And so I am excited to watch this film with you guys in our  Cafe Siesta .  And for you to have a copy of the said movie,  I will give the link so that you can download it too.

But first you must have U-TORRENT (bi-Torrent) in your computer:

U Torrent

Click to download

  • And then open ISO-HUNT  on your browser, and search for Leon The Professsional
… or just simply click this : http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/115514261/leon+the+professional?tab=summary
  • Next click DOWNLOAD- SAVE
  • Then open it, click OK and right away it will go directly to U-TORRENT (bi-torrent)and the movie will be downloaded. The downloading time will depend on how strong/fast is your net and it will finish like few hours or a day or two or more…
 

It will look like this: u-torrent

Here is the Movie Trailer:

  • And when everything is ready always have your favorite cup of coffee with you :)  Enjoy

Happy Weekend Everyone!

ARTISTRY IN POETRY

VIRTUOSITY

I see things others could not see
But when these things I see are viewed
Everyone would be inspired, they all glee
They see beauty thru the images that I glued

I could have drama in my creation
Or portray humor in my imagination
Different strokes, unique variation
And of my own taste in coloration

Viewers would feel my inner being
I could not hide any of my wondering
Life I have bestowed, I’m now delivering
With all of my art works, they are shining

My mastery, I have you motivated
Your pains or hurts would all be lifted
Even your joys would become unlimited
The brilliance of this work truly are gifted

Come, touch and feel me within
Get inside, explore, roll over and spin
Exploit the world of wonders we live in
Its magic would brush your life to win

Artistry, oh my, oh…
