This Great-Grandmother Makes The Meals Her Family Survived On During The Depression

This Great-Grandmother Makes The Meals Her Family Survived On During The Depression

One of my biggest regrets is not taking advantage of the stories my 90-year-old grandmother could have shared with me while she was alive. Like Clara Cannucciari, who has also now passed on, my grandmother lived through the Great Depression and likely could have shared similar recipes with me if I’d given her the chance. Thankfully, Clara’s family had the good sense to capture her warmth, stories, and recipes before it was too late. Each of the delightful videos showcases a meal Clara and her family survived on during one of the bleakest eras in U.S. history. Even while pushing a century on this planet, Clara’s sweet personality shines through the camera while she peels potatoes, sautés onions, and serves up the dishes they were able to piece together on their meager funds. Watching as she blends together the ingredients and listening to her memories of the time will fill […]

This bear’s got it all figured out…all he needs now is a poolside mojito. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/bear-pool/

If Your Spouse Never Orders Fries And Then Eats Yours, You'll Understand This Dog

If Your Spouse Never Orders Fries And Then Eats Yours, You’ll Understand This Dog

Most of us are probably a lot more protective of our food than we’d like to admit. Whenever I bring a tasty treat home and my loved ones try to steal more than a bite, I get pretty testy and make it obvious that I’m less than pleased with their attempt at poaching my meal. That’s why I completely understand this dog’s beef with her owner. When he took his pup’s bone out of her mouth and playfully pretended to eat it, she wasn’t having it at all — so she hilariously fought back. “Give it back now or I’ll release the rage of all my furry ancestors.” Read More: 15 Animals That Don’t Give A Damn About Our Stupid Human Laws If there’s one thing to be learned here, it’s to never underestimate the bond between a dog and her treats.

This Soccer Star Tattooed 50 Names On His Body For An Amazing Reason

This Soccer Star Tattooed 50 Names On His Body For An Amazing Reason

Zlatan Ibrahimović is one of the most famous soccer players in the world. A fan favorite, he’s instantly recognizable, and people chant his name everywhere he goes. But for him, this is a problem. Not because he’s shy or unappreciative of his fans — but because there are over 800 million people around the world whose names should be chanted instead. Before the February 14, 2015 match between Paris Saint-German and Caen at Parc des Princes, he put the finishing touches on 50 names that are symbolic of a global crisis. During the game, he removed his jersey and brought these names to the forefront. What they represent will break you heart.

If You Ever Find Yourself Traveling In Norway, Look Out For This Stunning Monument

If You Ever Find Yourself Traveling In Norway, Look Out For This Stunning Monument

The fabric of early human history is often woven with factual and fictional threads, mingling the bullet points found in textbooks with the legends and lore that bring timelines to life. These stories, passed down from generation to generation, humanize the past. Detailed histories can’t be boiled down into numbered lists. Monuments and works of art have a penchant for embodying this interplay between fact and fiction, and Norway’s Sverd i fjell is no different. Roughly translating to Swords in Mountain, the Sverd i fjell monument is comprised of three hulking swords that represent the unification of warring Norwegian factions under one banner. Flickr / Stine Homann While this unification process actually happened over the course of a few centuries, the Battle of Hafrsfjord, which some scholars estimate took place in the year 872, symbolizes those efforts. That is the event to which this monument is dedicated. Flickr / Gunnar […]

Guilty Dog Hilariously Tries To Hide A Sandwich In His Mouth Nice Try, Guy!

If you’ve ever owned a dog, you know and understand that sometimes they attempt to steal some of your food. If it’s in clear view, it’s pretty much fair game — at least in their opinion. The instant you look away from whatever you are eating, an opportunistic dog will pounce on that delicious human food. When Sabin saw his mom had made a tasty sandwich, his first thought was probably: “For me? You shouldn’t have!” Watch as she hilariously tracks down her lunch in the funniest place… If you think this is the only case of dogs squirreling food away in their mouths, think again! They may be man’s best friend, but they are also no-good scoundrels when it comes to getting their paws on some human noms. Read more: http://www.viralnova.com/dog-sandwich/

A Passionate Animal Lover Knits Abused Chickens Tiny Sweaters To Keep Them Warm In Fowl Weather

Battery hens are birds that are kept in tiny cages and are raised only to be slaughtered for food. The conditions are horrendous…but sometimes, these birds are rescued. Nicola Congdon and her mother, Ann, have been rescuing and rehoming battery chickens for some years. Recently, Nicola discovered that the overstressed birds would be too cold outside because of their lack of proper feathers. She decided to do something about it — and make them their own wooly winter sweaters to keep them warm. Abused birds will often over-preen themselves and pull out most of their feathers. This is an action caused by stress…and these comfy sweaters are what these birds need to stay warm! Instead of charging for the mini-sweaters she makes, Nicola will be accepting donations for an AIDS orphanage in South Africa, where the money goes straight to the orphans. (via Daily Mail) It’s truly wonderful what Nicola […]

If candy were a vegetable, you’d have no problem getting them to eat it, but for the less sugary options such as green beans or broccoli, it can feel like the start of World War III just trying to get them to have one bite.

The drug, called rapamycin, was originally developed as a cancer treatment for humans, but after discovering that it extended the lives of mice by up to 60 percent, researchers decided to test it out on dogs.

This is one of those videos, but the clever critter in this footage achieves unprecedented levels of cuteness.

When You See The Surprise That A Cop Had For These Kids, You'll Be So Jealous

When You See The Surprise That A Cop Had For These Kids, You’ll Be So Jealous

Kids are always told to put down their devices and play outside, but when they do, they’re often met with backlash. While sitting inside and scrolling through Twitter is a quiet activity, playing basketball is a decidedly noisy way to pass the time. That’s why people in this neighborhood called the cops on a few teens who were playing a pick-up game outside. They were just trying to have fun, but the neighbors weren’t having it. Luckily for the players, however, a guy named Officer White was on their side. Instead of coming down on them for playing ball, this officer joined them (since, you know, playing basketball isn’t a crime). He also vowed to come back and play again!

College Students Heard Whimpering, But Had No Idea What Was Hiding On Campus

Hope For Paws was recently called to a campus where students spotted a homeless Chihuahua hiding in a field. They thought she might have given birth to puppies and knew she needed help ASAP. Thankfully, Eldad Hagar quickly showed up on the scene, with help and a cheeseburger in hand. The small family was hiding in a trench, and was able to be cornered without too much stress. Unfortunately, one of the puppies was in severe pain. The little girl, Ivy, had severe hydrocephalus (which is fluid in the brain). They had to put her down to let her be at peace. The mother and two remaining puppies were cleaned up and given a clean bill of health. All of them are currently available for adoption, so if you’re interested in giving one a home, please visit Doggies 911 Rescue. If you’d like to help Hope For Paws rescue more […]

There Is A Bossy Pig In Australia That Might Be The Real Babe, The Sheep-Pig

We are all familiar with Babe, the story of a pig who wants to be a sheepdog, but that’s all fiction, right? Well, it turns out there is a REAL pig out there with a penchant for bossing around sheep. Her name is Squeak and she lives on Edgar’s Mission, a non-profit sanctuary for rescued farm animals in Lancefield, Victoria. Watch as Squeak goes full Miss Piggy, barking orders to a group of lambs who seem pretty sheepish about the whole thing.

There are few words that could do justice to the bond that connects us. Even when we’re arguing, we share the love of sisters, and that is a very powerful thing. And that type of love is so profound, in fact, that it can even make a toddler stop crying!

But I have to admit that there’s something incredible about watching nature run its course, and I’m sure these people would agree. During a tour on the Campbell River in British Columbia, Canada, tour guide Nick Templeman and his group finally got to see the killer whales they’d been looking for. But when a seal jumped straight into their boat, they realized that it was desperately trying to escape from the same whales they wanted to see. I’m honestly a little shocked that they entertained the idea of kicking it back in! The poor thing was absolutely terrified. And for good reason. The whales wouldn’t stop circling the […]
