An amazing medical breakthrough has happened in Australia this week. A toddler’s head has been re-attached to his neck following a car accident and it’s nothing short of miraculous work by the doctor.
Two weeks ago 16-month-old Jackson Taylor was traveling in the car with his mom, Rylea, and his sister. They were hit head on by another driver. Everyone escaped with relatively minor injuries, except Jackson. Rylea tearfully recalls the aftermath

During the 3rd inning of the Padres-Giants game on Thursday night the real excitement was happening off the field where baby Levi was making sure his mother had a memorable birth story to share with the world.
Mom and Dad went to cheer on their team before their family expanded but Levi had other plans. Mom, who was 39 weeks pregnant, went into labour but didn’t make it out of stadium. Fortunately, Giant’s catcher and “sorta doctor” Buster Posey was … Keep Reading!!!

You’ve got to admit, as great as they are, there are some products at Whole Foods that make you tilt your head, lift an eyebrow, and think, “who buys this?” Flavored water probably isn’t one of those things, normally. Cucumber water is refreshing. Lemon adds a little flavor. Kiwi water is delicious.
Whole Foods stepped it up a notch though, by charging $5.99 for a bottle of water with three stalks of asparagus in it.

A Michigan mom walked into a Tim Horton’s coffee shop to buy coffee and donuts, with her daughter in tow. It was then that two women in line behind her started mocking her weight and appearance.
“Oh look at her hair, it’s nasty looking and the roots are coming through,” and “Oh she’s a whale, oh the whale needs to eat.”
Even though it hurt her to hear those comments, especially after a 177 lbs weight loss, Dianne Hoffmeyer decided … Keep Reading!!!

Kids always joke about school feeling like prison but these kids took it to a whole new level. Two kindergartners created a genius master plot. The five-year-olds dug a tunnel under the fence days in advance. And they did it all with shovels from the sandbox. During a class walk they snuck over and made their great escape.
So what do 2 escape artists do on the outside? Walk 2 kilometres to a car dealership and try to buy … Keep Reading!!!
One of the worst things a parent-to-be could imagine is their child being switched in the hospital. There have been movies based on this (both fictional and non) a TV show based on this exact scenario is currently on air. For Richard Cushworth and his wife Mercedes Casanellas it’s not a movie, it’s their life. They are real life parents searching for their biological son. Even worse, they are making a pretty good case for this being planned by their … Keep Reading!!!

He … Keep Reading!!!

This week the FDA approved Flibanserin, also known as the “female Viagra” and everyone, men and women, are cheering. But should we be?
The new drug works a little differently from Viagra, by changing how brain cells respond to various neurotransmitters; its aim is to alter a woman’s sexual desire over time.
The FDA has rejected this drug a few times in the past due to it not being effective enough. But since the last rejection in 2013, no new … Keep Reading!!!
