WARNING: Your daily LOL video is a little risque, but too cute to pass up!
You won't understand why you'll feel emotional over this - but you will! Why this guy is playing the piano in for an 80 year old elephant is unclear. The elephant's enjoyment of the music is quite obvious though...

Wallet Lost In The 50s Returned To Owner’s Family
August 23, 2018
The family of a veteran who lost his wallet coming home from the Korean war get it back after it’s found in a basement in France.
As a kid, Sharon Moore heard stories about her dad getting his bag stolen on his way back from the Korean War. The New Hampshire woman never thought much about it until someone from France contacted her on Facebook looking for help finding the owner of a lost wallet. They attached a photo of her mom and a worn Social Security card and driver’s licence, so she immediately knew these belonged to her father.
Robert McCusker, Moore’s dad, passed away back in 1983, but this wallet was found in the basement of a building in France recently. The owner of the building, Patrick Caubet, doesn’t know how it ended up there, but seeing the old official documents and personal photos made him want to track down the family they belonged to. He works for the the French military and enlisted their help finding McCusker’s descendents to return the mementos.
Moore and her brother were delighted to receive their dad’s wallet from France and even filmed themselves opening it and shared that with Caubet, so he could see how happy it made them. To repay the kindness, they sent him a care package in France that included maple syrup from her backyard and a New England Patriots Jersey.
“It’s just amazing,” Moore says of getting back the sentimental items. “To hold something he held everyday, there are just no words.”

Worst Thing To Do Before Bed If You Want A Good Night’s Sleep
August 23, 2018
Forget blue light from your device, this is what will really keep you awake.
We get a lot of advice on how to get a good night’s sleep, which usually includes avoiding technology before bed and getting lots of natural light during the day. But a sleep expert warns there’s a bigger threat to getting our precious sleep and this one wasn’t even on our radar.
According to Dr. Michael Breus, the biggest mistake we can make before turning in for the night is trying to talk through any relationship issues with our partner. “Having big emotional discussions with your partner right before bed is one of the worst things you can do before trying to fall asleep,” he explains. “It can set off this whole level of autonomic arousal; you’re angry, you’re upset and you can’t stop thinking right before bed.”
Makes sense, right? For some of us, trying to turn off our worrying is what keeps us awake anyway, so trying to address relationship issues right before bed won’t help us catch more z’s.
So what should we do to ensure a good night’s sleep? Dr. Breus advises setting an hour aside before bed to spend on “sleep hygiene.” He suggests taking 20 minutes to finish up your last task of the day, another 20 minutes to complete your nighttime skincare routine and brushing your teeth, then the last 20 minutes should be spent relaxing your body with meditation or stretching. All of that sounds way more relaxing than discussing the state of your union, so it’s worth a try, right?
