    WOMAN HAVING AFFAIR WHILE HUSBAND IS AT WORK

    A woman is having an affair during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9 year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom closet to watch. The woman’s husband also comes home. She puts her lover in the closet, not realizing that the little boy is in there already.

    The little boy says, “Its dark in here.”

    The man says, “Yes, it is.”

    Boy ~ “I have a baseball.”

    Man ~ “That’s nice.”

    Boy ~ “Want to buy it?”

    Man ~ “No, thanks.”

    Boy ~ “My dad’s outside.”

    Man ~ “OK, how much?”

    Boy ~ “$250?

    In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the closet together.

    Boy ~ “Its dark in here.”

    Man ~ “Yes, it is.”

    Boy ~ “I have a baseball glove.”

    The lover remembering the last time, asks the boy, “How much?”

    Boy ~ “$750?

    Man ~ “Fine.”

    A few days later, the father says to the boy, “Grab your glove, let’s go outside and have a game of catch.”

    The boy says, “I can’t, I sold my baseball and my glove.”

    The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”

    Boy ~ “$1,000?

    The father says, “That’s terrible to overcharge your friends like that…that is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”

    They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door.

    The boy says, “Dark in here.”

    The priest says, “Don’t start that crap again.”

    Boy, 12, Dies After School Takes His Asthma Inhaler

    Ryan Gibbons was only 12 years old when he died from a severe asthma attack during recess at school. He would have simply reached for the prescription inhaler that he always carried with him, but his school took it away and locked it in the principal’s office.

    As Ryan gasped for air, his friends picked him up and carried him to the office where his inhaler was held. But they couldn’t get there in time. Ryan passed out before they reached his potentially life-saving medicine. He never recovered. The date was Oct. 9, 2012.

    The tragedy took place at Elgin County School in Straffordville, Ontario, Canada. Now Ryan’s grieving mom, Sarah Gibbons, is leading a campaign to get schools to change their senseless policy of keeping essential inhalers away from asthmatic children — by law.

    The bill that she wants lawmakers to pass is dubbed “Ryan’s Law,” in honor of her son’s memory. The proposed law would force schools to let kids who have a doctor’s okay carry inhalers in school, in a pocket or backpack.

    Gibbons says that her son often brought a spare inhaler to school with him for exactly this reason. What if he couldn’t get to the principal’s office in time? But over and over, school officials took it away.

    “I received many a phone call stating Ryan had taken an inhaler to school and they found it in his bag and would like me to come pick it up because he wasn’t even allowed to bring it home with him,” Ryan’s mom (pictured) told Canada’s national TV network, the CBC. “There’s supposed to be one in the office and that’s the only one he can have. I didn’t understand why.”

    Indeed, it is difficult to understand why. What possible reason could a school have for this bizarre anti-inhaler policy? In the United States, all 50 states have already passed laws permitting children to carry their inhalers in school — but even some American schools still don’t allow it.

    According to one expert, schools are sometimes fearful that they could be hit with liability claims if a student incorrectly administers his or her own medication or allows another kid to share the inhaler.

    “I understand these concerns, but what’s the liability in allowing a child with asthma to exercise without having access to an inhaler when a nurse may or may not even be at the school?” asks Maureen George, a nursing professor at the University of Pennsylvania.

     

    She says that schools sometimes ban inhalers under a blanket anti-drug policy as well.

    “But do prescription medications really need to be grouped with illicit drugs?” George wonders.

    How to pick the perfect cantaloupe: 6 key tips from an experienced farmer

    If you’re anything like us, you love cantaloupe.

    These juicy and delicious fruits are a treat for us from June to September, when they’re in season. Still, like may of the best fruits and vegetables (we’re looking at you, avocados), it can be a little bit of a challenge to pick them at the perfect time for taste and ripeness. Still, for those in the know, there are ways to make sure you pick the perfect cantaloupe for your fruit salad or cook out.

    Here are the steps to picking the perfect cantaloupe.

    1. Check out the rind for any defects.

    Sometimes you’ll pick out a juicy melon only to get it home and have it covered in bruises and marks. To prevent this, pick up the cantaloupe and check the outside for soft spots, indentations, cracks, bruises and and moldy patches. Once you’re all clear, you can move on to the next step.

     

    2. Examine the skin color carefully.

    Although the inside of a perfect cantaloupe is colored a gentle orange or a salmon-y color, the outside of the perfect cantaloupe is quite different. If you’re looking to eat it right away, try to avoid any tones of green in the rind—that’s a sign that the fruit is not yet ripe. Instead, you’re looking for a rind that is a soft beige, with maybe a very faded green undertone.

    3. Consider the weight.

     

    Comparing the cantaloupe to a few others can also be helpful to make sure you’re picking a good one. The general rule of thumb is: the heavier, the better.

    4. Gently push in on the blossom end of the fruit.

    To make sure the pulp is the right consistency to eat, give the bottom end of it a gentle press in with your thumb to test its strength. Ideally, the fruit will give just a little—though not too much. Too much is a melon that’s already starting to fall apart on the inside which doesn’t make for a good fruit salad.

    5. Give it a few taps.

    You can also give the melon a light rapping on the rind with the palm of your hand. Listen to the sound. If it gives off a hollow sound, you’re in good shape—any strange sounds likely mean that there’s something wrong with the inside.

    6. Smell it!

     

    Put the cantaloupe right up to your nose and consider its scent. If it’s ripe, it should give off a gentle, sweet smell. If you pick up one of these fruits and are overwhelmed by the scent coming off of it, that’s a good sign that the melon is past its prime and is now overripe.

    After all these steps, you’re ready to take it home and eat it. Enjoy!

    6 Ways Discontentment Destroys Women

    According to Google, to be “discontent” means to be “dissatisfied with one’s circumstances.” It’s such a simple little word with such a simple little definition. I love Google, but I think their definition for this word is deceitful. Discontentment is so much more than this suggests. Discontentment ruins friendships, marriages, and lives. And while I don’t like making blanket assumptions, and I know I can’t speak for everyone, I believe that (for the most part) this is one of Satan’s most powerful weapons against women, in particular.

    You see, I think the Father of Lies and Deceit has a way of taking this simple little word and turning it into a HUMONGOUS problem. The simplicity of it is what makes it so easy for him to use discontentment against us. It always starts out so small, doesn’t it? Maybe your job took a pay cut and you had to downsize, maybe your husband took a promotion but it’s in another city, maybe your toddler decided to become Pablo Picasso all over your brand new cream-colored sofa cushions. The seed is planted, and now you are not content with your life as it is. You want a new sofa, or a new job, or a new car.

     

    The Power of Discontentment

    Your husband comes home from work one too many times and doesn’t bother to ask you how your day was, so you start feeling discontent in your marriage. You sit and watch as your friends get married until you’re the only one left and you start to feel a little bit like Katherine Heigl in that movie about the bridesmaids dresses, only there’s no James Marsden ready to swoop into your life and give you the romance you’ve been craving. You cry in your bathroom every month when you realize you still aren’t pregnant. All of these things are devastating to varying degrees. All of them are worthy of your sorrow and concern. No one expects you to be happy when you are not.

    But we have to be on our guard, because Satan knows what we want and he knows when we don’t get it. He knows when we aren’t satisfied with our lives as they are. He uses those tiny grains of discontent and he irritates us with them over and over until you’ve got a clam/pearl situation and that tiny grain of discontent is all the sudden the size of a Volkswagen. He irritates us with it until it’s the only thing in our lives we can focus on; until everything else no longer matters. This is when our discontentment becomes dangerous. This is when it is capable of destroying us.

    1. Discontent causes your life to never be settled.

    Regardless of where you are in your life, discontent is a poison that makes you believe your life isn’t enough as it is. It makes you feel like you have to keep reaching; keep searching; keep running after whatever that elusive thing is that will all the sudden make everything better. You can never just stop and rest because you are too busy searching and chasing. This isn’t me telling you that you should never chase your dreams. By all means, go after what you want. Just be aware that discontentment is there, it’s hiding in the corner, and if you aren’t careful it will take over. If it takes over then you will always be looking for something better, you will always be moving, alwaysbe changing, and you will never give yourself an opportunity to just sit back and enjoy the life you have right now. You will be too focused on what could be, but isn’t, and you will look into the future so much that you forget there is a present.

    2. Discontentment can ruin your marriage and/or relationships.

    One of the most dangerous things for a marriage is discontent. A woman who is discontent with her marriage looks at her husband and is constantly disappointed. She married this man for who she hoped he could become someday instead of who he is right now and she is always disappointed when he doesn’t live up to her expectations. Or maybe she no longer sees any evidence of the man she married and she wonders what happened to the spark? Discontentment causes us to forget that humans are fallible; that we are not perfect and neither are our husbands. At best, it causes dissention and at worst it least to that constant searching for something better — a search that could potentially end with you in an inappropriate relationship with another man. All this because discontent forces us to focus on what could be instead of what is.

    3. Discontentment can lead to low self worth.

    If you aren’t satisfied with your life then it makes sense that you could blame yourself. Blaming yourself and constantly looking down on yourself is a good way to forget your worth. You were created by a God who “knit [you] together in [your] mother’s womb,” a God who is worthy to be praised. God sees your worth. He believed you were worth creating and he believed you were worth dying for. A low sense of self worth is not in his plan for you and it never will be. Depression and self loathing are just the tip of the iceberg, and discontentment will never provide you the relief it promises.

    4. Being discontent is essentially telling God that you don’t trust him.

    I completely understand how it is next to impossible to avoid all feelings of discontentment. But one thing that we can do is to catch ourselves when we have those thoughts; the thoughts that sneak into our minds when we aren’t paying attention. The ones that say, “What if?” or, “This is fine and all…but…”

    The truth is that it is hard to trust God 100% with our lives. It’s so crazy difficult to just “let go and let God.” Actually, I’ve always hated that saying, mostly because I always wanted to scream back, “OK, but what in the name of all that is holy do you mean?!” I don’t know that I know what it looks like to truly give my life into God’s hands. I don’t know what it means to allow myself to lose control. I don’t like losing control. Losing control gives me vertigo. It makes me feel like everything in the world is wrong and nothing will be right until I have everything figured out again. Unfortunately, life doesn’t always work within our control. When we are not content with our circumstances, we need to recognize exactly what we’re doing. We need to just go ahead and voice to God the truth in our hearts, “I’m not satisfied with what you’ve given me right now. I don’t trust that this is your plan for me. I’m afraid that you’ve got it all wrong.” You are allowed to feel that way. You are allowed to be upset about your circumstances, but the most dangerous thing you could do is ignore the way you feel and refuse to acknowledge that you are not content. The first step to solving a problem is admitting there is one, and even though it feels awkward and wrong, sometimes the best thing you can do is tell God that you aren’t happy with the way he’s handling things. It doesn’t mean you’re right, but it makes you honest, and I’m a firm believer in the idea that God likes it when we’re honest. Once you are honest with God, that’s when he starts a work in your heart.

    5. If you demand control of your life long enough, God will give it to you.

    I’ve said this already, but I like being in control. The problem with that is that I know that when it comes to me being in control or God being in control – it’s much better for me if God is in control. We have free will, and free will means that if we persist long enough, God gives us what we want. Usually, it doesn’t take us long after that to figure out that we didn’t really want it.

    If you want control of your life badly enough — if you fight for it hard enough — God will give it to you. Maybe that sounds like a sweet deal, but it’s not.

    6. Discontentment never goes away.

    This is Satan’s foothold into women’s lives. It’s so easy for us to become discontent. And even when we recognize it and acknowledge it and pray about it and fix it, it ALWAYS comes back. It never goes away. This is not a one and done deal. It’s constant. It’s continuous. We can never let our guard down because the minute we do; the minute we think we’re in the clear; it will rear it’s ugly head again and we will be unhappy, unsatisfied, and unfulfilled in our lives. We will be ripe for Satan’s interference and he will devour us. This problem never goes away. We always have to be on alert. Always. This is what God meant when he said to guard your heart.

    So, guard it. Guard it with everything you have. When you start to feel the small twinges of discontent, acknowledge it. Don’t bury it or ignore it. Bring it straight to God. Don’t let it fester. Satan wins when it festers. Don’t use it as a weapon against your husband or your friends or your family. Don’t hold onto it like a precious jewel or a talisman. Take it to God. Leave your life at his feet, throw your hands in the air and say, “I GIVE UP! Take my life! Please! I don’t know what to do with it anymore.”

    God thrives on our desperation for him. Satan hates it. So, turn your discontent into desperation, and turn the tables on Satan’s most potent weapon against you.

    Police Make Upsetting Discovery Inside Home Of Man Living With 12 Young Girls

    A Lower Southampton, Pennsylvania, man faces charges of sexual assault against an underage girl who was allegedly gifted to him by her parents.

    The former Amish couple were experiencing a financial hardship and went to 52-year-old Lee Kaplan for help, police said, the Bucks County Courier Times reports. They then gave him their 14-year-old daughter.

    The girl, now 18, told police that Kaplan is the father of her two children, ages 6 months and 3 years.

    When police were called to Kaplan’s home because of a complaint made by neighbor Jen Bets about the health and welfare of the children living there, they found 12 girls inside, ranging in age from 6 months to 18 years old.

    The two children Kaplan fathered with the girl were present at the property.

    “It’s never the wrong time to do the right thing,” Bets told WCAU. “There were signs.”

    “(She was) too young to be the wife, too old to be holding his hand,” Bets said of seeing Kaplan walking down the street with the girls.

    All of the underage children have been placed in protective custody.

    “The conditions in the house were fine,” Lower Southampton Detective Sgt. Shane Hearn said, according to the Courier Times. “They were not undernourished. Kaplan has a farm there and chickens running all over the place. I guess they were living off the land.”

    Bets believes the police took too long to respond to her requests to visit Kaplan’s home.

     

    It took too long,” she said, WCAU reports. “I just want them to get help and get back and be happy. They’re so sad and fearful every time I see them. That’s what made me call.”

    Kaplan is charged with statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault on a person younger than 16, corruption of minors, and contact with a minor involving sexual offenses, according to the Bucks County Courier Times. He is being held at Bucks County prison in lieu of 10 percent of $1 million bail.

    “I wanted (Kaplan) off the street despite the fact he told me he loved the children,” Lower Southampton district judge John Waltman said.

    The girl’s parents, who claim all of the children living in Kaplan’s home are theirs, were arrested on child endangerment charges. Their bail is set at $1 million.

    Police have not found any identifying documents for any of the girls, WCAU reports.

    “We are still investigating that. Bucks County is investigating that along with other agencies to help identify their genealogy and who their parents actually are,” Lower Southampton Lt. John Krimmel said.

    It is unknown how long the children were living with Kaplan.

    Family of Kidnapped Louisiana Woman Takes Justice into Own Hands

    The family of a kidnapped woman in Duson, La., Bethany Arceneaux, took justice into their own hands Friday when they rescued Arceneaux from her captor, Scott Thomas, killing Thomas in the scuffle that ensued.

    Arceneaux, 29, was kidnapped on Wednesday from a child-care center parking lot by Thomas, 29, the father of her son, reported The Advertiser. Their 2-year-old son was in her car at the time and was not harmed.

     

    Arceneaux’s family received a tip that she was being kept in an abandoned house nearby. As law enforcement had not yet acted, a half dozen family members assembled at the house and kicked down the door. They said they did not know what they would find.

    They found Arceneaux, bloody but alive, and Thomas. In the confrontation between Arceneaux’s family and Thomas, guns were fired and Thomas was fatally shot.

    Arceneaux, who had been stabbed multiple times by Thomas, also sustained further injuries. She was driven to a nearby hospital and is reportedly in stable condition.

    “She’s shook up, she’s sliced up, but she’s alright,” said Ryan Arceneaux, Bethany Arceneaux’s brother, who was involved in the confrontation along with another brother, Kaylyn Alfred.

    “We found her. We went and got her in that house. We kicked doors down. It was like a movie unfolding.”

    According to USA Today, Arceneaux had a protective order issued against Thomas on June 17. He was arrested Aug. 8 for violating the order and charged with aggravated assault and aggravated flight from an officer.

    “He keeps threatening to kill us,” Arceneaux wrote in her complaint to police. “He put a knife to my neck countless times.”

    “I can just imagine how chaotic that confrontation was,” police spokesperson Capt. Kip Judice told KATC. “The person who acted in defense of Ms. Arceneaux is a relative, a close relative to her. So I can imagine his emotions were probably high, and everyone’s levels were very escalated.”

    Judice said that while events indicate that the family members acted to protect Arceneaux, police are still investigating the incident. It is not clear whether any of the Arceneaux family will face charges.

    Police: Man Put His Finger Down Baby’s Throat (Photos)

    A South Carolina man and woman have been arrested after a 5-month-old baby was taken to the hospital with severe injuries. Police say the man stuck his finger down the baby’s throat.

    Celeste Paula Marroquin, 20, and Ricardo Perez Salas, 23, have been charged after the baby was taken to a pediatric ICU at a hospital in Greenville, South Carolina, with severe oral trauma on June 13.

    Marroquin has been charged with two counts of unlawful neglect of a child and is being held on $20,000 bail, according to WSPA. Salas has been charged with child abuse and unlawful neglect of a child and is being held without bail.

    Police say their investigation found that Salas had put his finger down the infant’s throat for an extended period of time while the baby was crying. This reportedly caused severe damage to the baby’s throat.

    Salas was allegedly in a home with the child, despite an order from the Department of Social Services that prohibits him from having contact with the child.

     

     

    Salas and Marroquin are accused of attempting to cover up the infant’s injuries by avoiding seeking medical attention for several days, according to WHNS.

    The infant had to undergo emergency surgery for injuries caused and is currently on a ventilator, but is expected to make a full recovery.

    Readers shared their thoughts on the story on the Mad World News Facebook page.

    “Again, why are we wasting tax dollars on these worthless idiots,” one reader commented. “Both deserve jail time with no parole and hard labor. No tv, college education, medical care or rehabilitation. Just not worth it. When the child is well enough, he should never have to be near these idiots again. Place him in a home where he will be loved and given the opportunities ever child deserves.”

     

    This infant can’t fight for it’s life, but these morons do this to this baby how disgusting and pathetic are you both,” another wrote. “Sterilize both of them never again to have children, how could any women allow this to happen to your infant. Women need to learn to stand up for your children not allowing men to control them all, if you can’t support your children and allow this to happen it’s far to late to change things you need to see thru these men.I have NO empathy for these type of men it’s all about them not the children or their wife or girlfriend what ever.Hopefully this baby recovers and taken away from both of them and adopted out and could bring joy to a couple that would love a baby and have a loving home please God allow this to happen.”

    15-Yr-Old Was Groomed On Facebook, Brutally Raped & Murdered. Her Parents Beg You to See Her Viral “Love Story”

    On October 31, 2015, 15-year-old Kayleigh Haywood was randomly contacted by 28-year-old Luke ‘Fun Times’ Harlow on Facebook.

    He was flirty, fun, affectionate and charming. He was mature; he was different from the rest. He made her feel beautiful. Most of all, he was head over heels in love with her—or so she thought.

    Fifteen days later, Kayleigh was brutally raped and murdered.

    This is “Kayleigh’s Love Story”…

    Just 24 hours after Kayleigh’s harrowing short film was released on Tuesday, it has been seen by more than 1 million people, and that number is rapidly growing.

    Her heartbroken parents are now on a mission to make sure what happened to their daughter doesn’t happen to anyone else’s. They gave police permission to recreate their “beautiful daughter’s tragic legacy” in order to warn the world about the dangers of online grooming.

    To have reached so many people and for the film to have been seen by so many in such a short space of time is remarkable,” said Deputy Chief Constable Roger Bannister. “It contains a really important message, a message for children and parents alike, and I believe it has the potential to keep many tens of thousands of children safe from the threat posed by predators online.”

    After sending the 15-year-old a barrage of flirtatious texts convincing Kayleigh of his love and affection for her, Harlow persuaded the teen to come over to his flat in Ibstock, Leicestershire, in the UK.

    After getting her drunk and sexually assaulting her, he took her over to his neighbor’s house, Stephen Beadman.

    Beadman, a landscape gardener, raped and murdered Kayleigh on some farmland near his property.

    Using a brick and her fingernails, Kayleigh tried relentlessly to fight off her attacker, but to no avail.

    Harlow was an avid horror film fanatic. His fantasy turned out to be Kayleigh’s worst nightmare

    Harlow was sentenced to 12 years and Beadman was sentenced to 35, but that time served can never buy the Haywoods back a single second with their precious daughter.

    At the film’s launch, Kayleigh’s mom, Stephanie Haywood, delivered this powerful message:

    WE WILL NEVER AGAIN SEE OUR BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER KAYLEIGH.

    WE WON’T BE ABLE TO CUDDLE HER, TO CARE FOR HER OR BE ABLE TO PROTECT HER.

    MY HEART ACHES EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY. SO DOES HER FATHER MARTIN’S AND HER BROTHER KYLE’S, THE HEARTS OF OUR OTHER CHILDREN AND OF ALL THOSE WHO KNEW AND LOVED KAYLEIGH.

    OUR WORLD CHANGED FOREVER THE DAY THAT KAYLEIGH RECEIVED THAT FACEBOOK MESSAGE. BUT WE ARE DETERMINED THAT KAYLEIGH LIVES ON, AND NOT JUST IN OUR HEARTS.

    WE WANT HER TO HELP PROTECT CHILDREN—TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE. WHEN THE POLICE ASKED US, LAST DECEMBER, IF THEY COULD MAKE A FILM ABOUT KAYLEIGH, WE DIDN’T HESITATE TO GIVE THEM OUR TOTAL SUPPORT.

    WE WANTED THIS FILM MADE. IT SERVES AS A WARNING—TO CHILDREN AND TO PARENTS—OF THE VERY REAL DANGERS OF ONLINE GROOMING.

    WE WANT EVERY CHILD AGED 11 AND UPWARDS TO SEE THIS FILM, BOTH IN THIS COUNTRY AND ABROAD. BECAUSE THIS FILM IS OUR BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER’S TRAGIC LEGACY.

    10 mesmerizing ways to transform a clay pot

    If you’re a gardener, you are no stranger to the classic terracotta flower pot. Terracotta pots are perfect for the garden because they are affordable and more sustainable than cheap, plastic pots. However, these garden staples aren’t only good for the outdoors.
    Think twice before you toss out your old clay pots for new ones because these guys can be transformed into a variety of items that are great for both the garden and the home. Try painting them different colors, putting them in different arrangements, or simply using the unaltered pot for something other than plants. Keep reading to see some ideas that will get you started.
    1. Candy dish
    This adorable candy dish looks just like those you would stick a quarter in as a kid except when you make your own you won’t need to feed it money. It doesn’t only have to hold candy, it could be great for cookies, baking materials, or even a fish tank.

    2. Garden toad stools
    This simple and creative project by The Whoot takes a new spin on using clay pots in the garden. Pots don’t simply have to hold plants, they can also accentuate the garden as fun and whimsical decorations.

    3. DIY fountain
    Put multiple pots together and you can craft yourself this stunning terra cotta fountain. This would be so peaceful to sit next to on a sunny day. Grab and book and a cold drink and spend the day out in the backyard.

    4. Painted succulent pots
    Of course, you don’t have to do much to enhance the already lovely terra cotta pot. One could simply paint it a different color like Pink When did with these rustic looking succulent holders. Easy and elegant!

    5. Bird feeder
    This clay bird feeder would look spectacular next to project #3 on this list. We love the additional floral details that were placed on this one by The Garden Roof Coop.

    6. Flower pot wreath
    Wow! The time and detail it must have taken to craft this beauty seems well worth it. This project is both decorative and functional and would definitely be the eye-catcher of the garden.

    7. Bird bath 
    Birds are a lovely thing to have hanging out in your garden. Attract some feathered friends by building this amazing bird bath by Tracy’s Trinkets & Treasures. They will love it and you will love watching them.

     

    8. Garden planter and bird bath
    Here is another spin on the bird bath but it also doubles as a tiered planter. We love how Home Stories at Oz have combined two garden necessities in one.

     

    9. Chalkboard pot
    This chalkboard pot by The Idea Room would make the perfect gift for that special teacher in your life. The ideas for what you could draw or write on it are limitless.

    10. Cake stand
    So far we’ve seen a lot of ideas for the garden, but here is one for the kitchen. This terracotta cake stand is such a creative way to display your delicious baked goods. Break it out at your next dinner party and see the reactions you get.
