MAN LOSES WEIGHT BY DRINKING BEER AND EATING SAUSAGES-Evo Terro has managed to lose weight by doing what many men love to do — drink beer and eat sausages. Inspired by the yearly Oktoberfest celebrations, the Arizona man has been using this diet to lose weight for three years, drinking up to six beers a day, consuming 15,000 calories per week (about 2,100 calories a day). Last year, Terro even managed to lose up to 14 pounds. His doctor approves of this diet, monitoring Terro’s health. He promises to stop the diet if it turns hazardous. The doctor says Terro’s cholesterol has gone down, noting that most of the weight lost was body fat.
Note: Working mornings, I do not get out much…Hardly hit the bars, and if me and my wife are lucky, might go out once or twice a month. When and if we do, it is normally a nice place-with great food, and a staff that is worthy of my typical 20% tip. But, have you ever been to a place where it seemed that your tip was “expected” or even if the food and service were just OK you felt obligated to tip? –sure you have. How’s this for a concept? ~Rowdy
The homeless hero who handed a found backpack full of cash and travelers checks worth some $40,000 over to Police will not walk away from his good deed empty handed. In addition to a special citation from the Boston Police Department, Glen James stands to receive upwards of $70,000 thanks to an Internet fundraiser launched by a Virginia man who was touched by the story. Ethan Whittington thought he could raise a few hundred bucks as a thank you to James for his selflessness. But 24 hours later, Whittington's GoFundMe page had raised over $55,000 thanks to the donations of some 2,000 strangers. And the numbers have not stopped climbing since.
