Agnes Fenton turned 110 on Saturday. She celebrated at her home in Englewood, surrounded by some of the more 40 children she helped raise during her years as a nanny.

When she was asked for the secret to a long life, she kept it simple.

“Ain’t no secret, just keep in touch with God and do the right thing, that’s all I know,” says Fenton.

In an interview for her 105th birthday, Fenton told ABC News she had enjoyed a beer and whiskey every day for decades.

According to Fox News, a crowd of several hundred gathered Saturday night to see Detroit’s newest resident: A 9-foot, 2,000-pound statue of a goat-headed occult idol named Baphomet.

The Satanic Temple unveiled the bronze figure to an estimated 700 attendees at an undisclosed location. The group’s initial venue canceled after local religious groups protested.

The group’s approach to secrecy with the second venue led to little opposition on Saturday, Director of the Detroit Satanic Temple chapter and national spokeswoman Jex Blackmore told Fox News.

“Protesters arrived for a short time at our first ticketing location, but retreated after only about 30 minutes,” Blackmore said. “One woman attempted to block the event entrance and was removed by the police in cooperation with the building’s owner. “

The statue will now be stored out of public view until the Temple can find it a permanent home. The group hopes to display it at the Arkansas State Capitol, next to a monument of the Ten Commandments.

Bastille Day is the name given in English-speaking countries to the French National Day, which is celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is formally called La Fête nationale; The National Celebration) and commonly Le quatorze juillet.

The French National Day commemorates the Storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789, which was the culmination in Paris of a violent revolution that had begun two days earlier, as well as the Fête de la Fédération which celebrated the unity of the French people on 14 July 1790. Celebrations are held throughout France. The oldest and largest regular military parade in Europe is held on the morning of 14 July, on the Champs-Élysées in Paris in front of the President of the Republic, along with other French officials and foreign guests

What’s your favorite french food? Ours is Pan-seared Foie Gras

Foie gras paté is delicious, but pan-seared foie gras is unique and amazing. The hardest part of this recipe is finding a fresh whole foie gras at a local store. Once you have it, the recipe is actually fairly easy and the result mind-blowing.

Lessons about Eating we can learn from the French

The French diet is full of flavor and high in satisfaction. They don’t believe in low-fat, low-carb, low-taste, or low-calorie, but they do believe in enjoying their food, taking the time to eat at the table, knowing when to stop eating and educating their children about food. These are a just a few of the many lessons the French can teach us about a culture that truly thrives on savoring the flavor at mealtime.

1. THE FRENCH EAT FAMILY MEALS TOGETHER.

No distractions. It’s a real bonding time where they get to talk discuss life. The French train their kids from the age of three they spend time eating at the table at lunch every day in school. They’re not inherently better behaved, but they’ve practiced for years. By the time you see an eight-year-old French kid in a restaurant they have sat at a table thousands of times. It’s just practice.

2. THE FRENCH SIT DOWN AND ENJOY THEIR MEALS.

Eating great food — no matter how simple or how elaborate — is one of life’s great pleasures. It’s rare to see people eating while walking or shopping in France. There are no cup holders on caddies, or even in most cars. You eat at the table, not in front of the TV or computer screen, then you leave the table and do something else. When eating at restaurants, the French are never asked by their servers “are you done with that?” because the meal is a pleasure, not a task.

3. THEY FRENCH DON’T SNACK!

They eat, but not all day long. It’s OK to feel hungry between meals. The French don’t graze after dinner. That’s why when mealtimes roll around, they eat with real pleasure because they’re hungry. When the kitchen closes, it’s CLOSED and they have set mealtimes without cheating on the side. Portions are generous without going overboard. Although the French take in a lot of daily calories compared to most other countries (but nothing compared to yearly U.S. calorie intake), they don’t gain weight because of how they schedule their meals.

Tracey McCloud, of Alliance, placed the call to the emergency number from inside Main Moon Chinese Restaurant.

The call did not qualify as an emergency and she was arrested and charged with misuse of 911, which is a misdemeanor, police said.

Alliance Police are reminding residents that misuse or abuse of the system can delay dispatchers from taking calls from people with real emergencies.

McCloud is scheduled to appear in court later this week.

Would you do this? When was the last time you complained about your food? What was wrong with it? Are you just a complainer?

Train, Eat, Rest & Repeat – Benefits of drinking coffee before exercising

1

coffee-boosts-exercise-msc

The study basically simulated your average morning: a mug of coffee to wake up, a little gym time, another cup with breakfast, followed by lunch. Fourteen participants completed two moderate workouts on a stationary bike: one where they took caffeine (equal to two 8-ounce cups of coffee or 4 cups of black tea) 90 minutes before the workout, and one where they took a placebo. When caffeinated, the participants reported the ride as way easier than it was without the stimulant.

Coffee before Exercising:

1) Enhanced Performance 

Time and time again, caffeine has been proven to be a powerful ergogenic aid – that is, something which contributes to improved performance during high intensity exercise. 

Studies reveal that after caffeine consumption, athletes can train for much longer and with more power/speed.

2) Boosts Focus

A pre-workout cup o‘ Joe can also boost mental focus during exercise.

Combined with the increase in endurance and power/speed provided, this can lead to extremely productive workout sessions, as you huff and puff with the seeming intensity of an international athlete.

3) Accelerate Fat Loss

Another benefit of taking a cup of coffee prior to lacing up your trainers is that caffeine is proven to provide a range of fat loss benefits.

Coffee can help burn fat as, during exercise, it causes the body to use fat cells for energy as opposed to glycogen.

What’s more, a caffeine intake correlates with increase metabolism, which forces your body to burn more calories during the day, and it also suppresses appetite, satiating those cravings which are oh so bad for your waistline!  

4) Diminished Muscle Pain

Studies also show that a pre-workout injection of caffeine can lead to decreased muscle soreness when exercising.

So whether you’re pumping iron or racing down the tarmac, a cup of coffee will help you perform more reps and allow you to run for further with less muscular pain, resulting in a much more effective workout.

NFL player, Josh Robinson compared gay marriage to Pedophilia and Incest – Give us your thoughts on his comments?

According to SI, Minnesota Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson compared gay marriage to pedophilia and incest in a series of Twitter posts on Friday following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marriage. 

The landmark Supreme Court decision effectively legalizes same-sex marriage in all 50 states. The Court’s 2013 decision ruling the crux of the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional and subsequent decisions from lower courts laid the groundwork for Friday’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges. 

While a number of athletes praised the Court’s decision, Robinson questioned whether the logic that has led to the legalization of gay marriage could also allow the justification of pedophilia and incest.

Cops shut down Little Girls’ Lemonade Stand for Operating Without a Permit (Do you think the cops were right or is this too much?)

According to People, two little girls who opened a lemonade stand to raise money for a Father’s Day gift were shut down by police for operating without a permit.

“We were trying to raise some money to take our dad to Splash Kingdom,” 8-year-old Andria Green told KLTV.

Added her 7-year-old sister, Zoey: “We had kettle corn and lemonade. The lemonade was for 50 cents and the kettle corn was a dollar, but if you got both it was a dollar.”

However, local Overton, Texas, authorities had little sympathy for the girls when they stumbled upon their stand. “A code enforcement officer and the chief, she called me to the side and said we needed a permit,” Andria and Zoey’s mother, Sandi Green, said.

Green was shocked. It’s “ridiculous,” she said. “I think they’re 7 and 8 and they’re just trying to make money for their own cause.”

Police Chief Clyde Carter stands by the decision. “It is a lemonade stand, but they also have a permit that they are required to get,” he said. “We have to follow by the state health guidelines. They have to have a permit if they’re going to do the lemonade stands.”

The girls plan to set up their lemonade stand again this weekend – though they’ll only be accepting donations this time around.
