For Teacher, God Is the Answer – (

This woman is an inspiration:

“I turned my fear into faith. I turned all my tests into testimony. I turn my mess into message.”

Woman wins $1 million trying to teach husband a lesson about lotteries – (

Glenda Blackwell was fed up with her husband buying lotto tickets, which she thought was a waste of money. She never expected what would happen when she bought him scratch-offs instead!

“I was going to be ugly and buy a scratch-off to show him they didn’t hit,” Blackwell told CNN affiliate WLOS. “Sometimes I get aggravated with him, so I tell him, ‘You’re just wasting your money.'” Well maybe she should get aggravated at him more often. That scratch-off ticket she bought out of spite was a $1 million winner. “I had to eat my words, but they were worth eating,” said Blackwell. “So, I was very happy.”

You Probably Let Your Dog Do This All The Time, But Here’s Why You Should Be Careful -(

If you let your dogs lick your lips, you may want to stop. This article reminds us that we can get quite sick from having a dog lick our mouths.

The one thing I won’t let them do, though, is lick near my mouth… because obviously, that’s just gross. I know for some, that’s crazy talk, but hear me out! While I’ve mostly been concerned about their bad breath, experts say letting them lick your lips really isn’t good for your health. The old adage about dogs’ mouths being cleaner may be true, but not enough where you’d want to share their germs. Allowing your pup to lick your mouth can actually transmit nasty diseases that we aren’t meant to tolerate.
