Okay, tumblr, I need your help. I’ve seen things like this get thousands and thousands of notes, and I really think that this is a cause worth sharing.
This couple is an elderly couple that live in my small town in Canada’s smallest province. They both suffer from dementia and for the last 55 years, they’ve sent out Christmas cards to everyone in their neighbourhood. They’re both in a home now, and their son is doing a little project. The woman, Bev, her favourite movie is A Miracle On 34th Street, and she especially loves the part where the christmas cards come in by the hundreds. Her son is trying to get that to happen for her.
It would make this lady’s Christmas to get the hundreds of Christmas cards from all over the world. I think we owe it to this kind soul to come together and give her a Christmas miracle. If you would like to send a Christmas card, their information is;
Don and Bev Enman, C/O Summerset Manor
15 Frank Mellish Street
Summerside, P.E.I. Canada
Please reblog this and spread the word, guys. There’s also an article here x if you want to read more about them.
people who laugh so hard at their own jokes that they can’t even finish the joke because they’re laughing so hard are my favorite kind of people
Luciana Diniz and As-Taro
He is fussy with a whole bridle, so she uses a chin strap to keep the bit in place. They don’t always use this, in the jump off she had a full bridle to facilitate better control in the turns. You could tell he was much happier sans bridle.
I’ve never seen this before….it’s cool though. It just proves every horse is different
I like this. It shows much more consideration for the horse than I normally see, as I know a lot of people who would just put a bridle on anyway, not giving two shits about the horse’s discomfort. I also like the fact there’s no martingale, and if I recall correctly, As-Taro didn’t throw his head up or fuss about. So you don’t really need martingales, and sometimes I wonder if they’re superfluous. You see horses with them on but they throw their heads up anyway.. are they really doing their job?
I love that she’s riding him in just a regular Snaffle bit rather than a large Pelham and chain or any other kind of bit (not saying they’re bad bits, I ride my horse in a Pelham and love it). It’s just nice to see that he isn’t getting his face ripped on as well as they’ve got his comfort in mind. I like the whole idea of this :)
I really love this. this just makes me think, do most horses really need a whole bridle?
I bet it would make you really mindful of your hands.
Video is a teacher talking to a classroom of deaf students.
Teacher: I want to talk about language today. When a child is born, what is the first thing the parents hear in the hospital?
Student: “Your child failed the hearing test.”
Teacher: Right. A baby is five hours old and he’s failed something already? What about the term “hearing loss”? What does that word evoke?
Student: Hearing is the norm. Deaf is less than. Lacking.
Teacher: Are we “less than”? Do you believe being deaf has taken away or added to your life? If someone invented a pill you could take it tonight and you would wake up hearing how many of you would take it? *looks around the room* None of you. Why not?
Student: Because being deaf gives you friends anywhere you go.
Student: And a way of seeing the world that’s different from anyone else.
Student: Hearing kids don’t know who they are. We do. We’re deaf: first, last, always.
Student: Hearing people think they have more than us…their lives are better. We have it so “hard.” But I’d never give up being deaf to be like anyone else. Never.
Teacher: Not hearing loss. Deaf gain.
Note: Please keep this transcript when you reblog this so that blind people (blind people use screen readers) are able to know what the video was talking about.
*trys to hit high note of favorite song*
The Cincinnati Bearcats are awesome.
hes wearing a fucking tiara in the last one, i’m laughing so fucking hard.
that’s me on the left.
I’m pretty sure everyone on tumblr is the one on the left
I’m the one in the middle
i’m having an existential crisis
I am so sorry, but this is actually probably true. Plants co evolved to reward us for cultivating and propagating them. It’s called exorphin theory, and plants are pretty much just using us as their means of reproduction. That’s why humans show nearly every sign of species domestication. Have a good night, friend.
so is deforestization like breaking out of the matrix or
8 for height, 10 for elasticity, 2 for technique.
Well that’s one way to do it
Oh my god hahahhaha. “I MUST DANCE”!
