Children, Friday, and God: World's Oldest Woman, Violet Moss Brown, Dies At 117 in Jamaica @balleralert World's Oldest Woman, Violet Moss Brown, Dies At 117 in Jamaica - blogged by @MsJennyb โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € On Friday, just five months after becoming the world's oldest person, 117-year-old VioletMossBrown died in Jamaica. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Brown's son, Barry Russell, said his mother was taken to the hospital earlier in the week, where she was treated for heart arrhythmia and dehydration.

Animals, Ass, and Bad: I miss my sister! 3 years ago today I lost my second half, my beautiful Sister and my best friend. You couldn't find someone with a more beautiful smile that could light up the world, and the funniest laughter would make everyone around her laugh right along with her. I was her very own hero, always praising me, and there isn't a second that passes by that I can't feel her presence. Oleanny Ferran was an angel, lover of animals and the beach. We use to sit at night watching the waves splash against the sand and make up stories of our future: where would we be, who would we marry or date, children, nephews, and remember all the good and bad things we endured together. Itโ€™s like a piece of you is cut off and you keep searching for it. God knows my sister saved my ass more than I can count when I was a kid and got in trouble, knowing full well I would get a beating if our parents found out. We used to finish each otherโ€™s sentences, had the same thoughts and interrupted each other with the same ideas. We both fought for each other, even overly protective. We were each other's confidant. It's hard at times, when I am surrounded by challenges, and am not able to have her by my side to talk about them. I would give anything to see her one more time, but I know that every day she looks over me from heaven. God, I miss her so much. Tank

It was just different.โ€™ So that made him want to do a song about it.โ€ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € However, the song almost didnโ€™t make the cut, as Carter wasnโ€™t happy with it at first.

Baked, Community, and Family: Trapped Mexican bakers make pan dulce for hundreds of Harvey victims over two days The four workers used nearly 2,000 kilogrammes of flour and baked da [Read more] ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ฝThis is why we love our people โคโคโค they were trapped and didn't need to do this, but they weren't thinking of just themselves - they were thinking about everyone else. That is the immigrant spirit. Houston ImmigrantJustice SiSePuede ใƒปใƒปใƒป Four bakers who became trapped in their bakery for two days in the wake of Hurricane Harvey made hundreds of loaves of bread to give to flood victims. The workers from the El Bolillo Bakery in Houston, Texas, used up nearly 2,000kg of flour to bake bread and pan dulce, Mexican sweet bread, throughout the night and day after they were left stranded by the floods over the weekend. The four bakers had been working on a late shift when they realised they could not leave the shop because of the level of water on the streets. To take their minds off worrying about their family and friends, they decided to continue to bake for those affected by the devastating downpours. The Mexican bakery, which specialises in Mexican cakes and patisseries, had remained dry and had not been cut off from electricity so the bakers were able to work throughout the night and the following day. Brian Alvarado, the manager of the shop on South Wayside Drive, told The Independent: "When they realised they were stuck, they decided to keep themselves busy and help the community and made as many loaves of bread as they could. "By the time the owner managed to get to them, they had made so much bread that we took the loaves to loads of emergency centres across the city for people affected by the floods. "We didn't count exactly how many loaves they made, but they used 4,400 pounds [1,996kg] of flour." hurricaneharvey Repost @iwakesheeple
