I'd like to thank Jason Brownie for stopping by yesterday morning! We had a great time, and can't wait to hear him at Countryfest!
Don't throw out those flowers!
Random Acts of Flowers is a non-profit that recycles floral arrangements into beautiful bouquets that are delivered to patients at hospitals, senior centers, and other healthcare facilities. They take flowers that were given to someone and repurpose them for someone else, brightening more people’s days with the same flowers.
The idea for Random Acts of Flowers came to founder Larsen Jay after he was in a near-fatal car accident in July 2007. While recovering, he got lots of lovely flowers, but he noticed other patients in the hospital didn’t get any. So he broke his arrangements up into smaller ones and shared them with fellow patients.
When he saw how much of an impact his gesture had on others, he decided to do it on a bigger scale and Random Acts of Flowers was created. Now they have locations in Knoxville, Tampa, Silicon Valley, Chicago, and Indianapolis, where volunteers recycle and repurpose flowers to spread the cheer.
- A woman in Ohio stuck her hand in her toilet to try and fix a clog
- Her hand ended up getting stuck and she had to call for help
- Emergency services had to break the toilet in order to get the woman's hand out
- A video of the incident has gone viral
After a string of bad luck with her new house, a woman in Cleveland, Ohio refused to let a toilet clog get the best of her. In the end, it ended up causing her plenty of grief when her hand got stuck inside the john.
She ended up calling for help and emergency services had to come to her house, remove the toilet from her bathroom, bring it outside and break it in order to free her hand. The best part? Someone at the house filmed the situation and the unnamed woman managed to keep laughing.
