OMG! You Have To Watch These Seniors Play A Life-Size Game Of Hungry-Hungry Hippo

Published

on

Just because you’re in a nursing home doesn’t mean you have to grow up.

I identify with the elderly. I love a soft food and a 9pm bedtime. Even with those charming qualities, I am nowhere near as adorable as the seniors at Bryn Celyn Care Home who used their isolation to bring a classic children’s game to life. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the seniors at the Wales nursing home decided to combat the loneliness by playing a giant version of the classic Milton Bradley board game, Hungry Hungry Hippos. The staff creatively attached laundry baskets to the ends of  broomsticks, set out a pile of balls into the center of the room and then had their wheelchair bound seniors act as the hungry hippos.

While the video, shared on the home’s Facebook page, is obviously entertaining and yanks on literally every heart string, the care facility is using the post to alert the public that they hiring for positions in caring for residents. If you own pair of giant dice and happen to be in the south of Wales, this could be the perfect job for you! (Giant dice not necessary*)

Times are dark and we all need a good distraction. Take a look at the adorable video below!

Puppies. Field trips. Aquariums. What more do you need?!

Since the coronavirus pandemic is still running ramped, businesses across the world are shut down. The Georgia Aquarium is one of the businesses being affected but luckily for Odie and Carmel…the two cutest distractions you’ll see today…there was a private tour scheduled today. The Atlanta Humane Society posted a video of the furry field day on their social media and it is racking up thousands of views by the minute. The adorable pair of pups don’t seem to be all that interested in the aquatics around them but who cares they still look like they are having the best day ever!

Adorable Penguin Couple Take Private Tour Of Chicago Aquarium Amid Closure

Published

on

I hope Disney and Pixar are paying attention because a penguin couple who spend their date night wandering around a closed aquarium sounds like a hit animated movie plot in the making.

The Shedd Aquarium over in Chicago closed earlier this week due to the COVID-19 outbreak. While that news is devastating for all aquatic enthusiasts, there are a few tuxedoed guests that are taking full advantage of the private time. Edward and Annie are a pair of bonded Rockhopper penguins on the cusp on nesting season who are using the empty aquarium as their romantic stomping grounds. The pair of penguins are traveling from exhibit to exhibit checking out some of the marine life they have never even seen before. The adventures of Edward and Annie are being documented by the aquariums Twitter account who also shared that the couple will begin building their nest next week. If I talk any more about nesting I will feel obligated to play Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” so I think I will just end it here.

Enjoy some adorable footage of Edward and Annie’s exciting adventure!

Kindness Prevails! Customer Leaves Enormous Tip For Out Of Work Restaurant Staff

Published

on

Slowly but surely more and more businesses are being shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. With the world being in such a crisis it’s nice to see humanity shine through as it did with this one generous customer in Ohio.

It’s not easy to turn on the news these days. There seems to be a never ending stream of horribleness on every news channel at any given time. In these dark times, however, it is nice to know that there is still so much good in the world. On Sunday, Ohio made the decision to close down its bars and restaurants in an attempt to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. One the one hand it does feel good to finally be encouraged to drink alone in the dark without feeling the guilt of societal norms…but on the other, there is the harsh reality that hundreds if not thousands of people will be without work for the foreseeable future.

One very generous, anonymous customer knew that things were looking grim for the restaurant staff at Coaches Bar and Grill in Columbus, Ohio and so they left a whopping $2,500 tip on a bill that was less than $30. On the bill the tipper wrote “Please split this tab equally between Tara, Nicky, Jim, Liz and Arrun. The tip amount is $2500.00.” Benny Leonard, one of the restaurant’s employees, told WCMH, said

“It brought some of them to tears. They are going to split it 13 ways and it’s going to help them. We are a family and we will get through it together. An unbelievable act of kindness on a pretty weird day. We’ve got unprecedented times going on, we’ve got people fighting over toilet paper and so on and so forth, and to have a guy show up and care enough about people that give him a beer and a hamburger once in a while, that means a lot. It’s humanity at its best.”


Let’s take the lead of this kind tipper and share the good in these troubling times! Share this story with your friends to brighten their days as well.
