    Strippers At The Old Folks Home - Feel Good Friday

    Strippers At The Old Folks Home - Feel Good Friday

    You know it’s a party when someone invites strippers to the nursing home. Some folks in Taiwan are not so happy about the Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations. One dad-to-be doesn’t quite understand what the heck is happening when his partner breaks the exciting news. Like some sort of evil Disney character, a “nurse” in Vancouver is facing a slew of charges for pretending to be someone she most certainly was not and did a lot of damage while she was at it. NYC is staring down the barrel of a shotgun loaded with Polio… Yikes! One PEI teacher has made a discovery of a lifetime and it’s nearly 300 million years old! Jer caps it all off with even some more TWIN content! This one is a doozy.

Feeling understood

I currently have a concussion right now and listening to their concussion podcast helped me a lot. I was feeling pretty down and lonely because I have to “rest” my brain, but their podcast brightened my mood and I could really relate to the girl who got a concussion from a brick wall. I got a concussion from hitting my wall in my room because I’m in an attic. I felt so embarrassed but it’s not to know concussions can happen in so many way. Thank you.
