Last year a girl called Hallee turned 18 and wanted to have her party at a Bowling Alley, she suffers from autism and wanted to enjoy her party, she invited people from school and her neighbourhood but sadly nobody showed up.

Her cousin Rebecca Lyn decided that her next birthday was going to be different, so she put this post up on Facebook and it went viral, it now has 131 thousand shares and Hallee has been inundated with cards and gifts and well wishes from around the world.

Jumpy is a multi-talented border collie mix who has more skills than most humans. 

The amazing pup has already starred in Hollywood films as a stunt dog, he can ride skateboards, water-ski and do amazing back flips! 

Jumpy’s resume went to the next level when his trainer posted this video of the skilled dog painting a masterpiece. 

In the video below, his trainer uses a wand to direct Jumpy who is holding a paint brush in his mouth. It’s amazing to see the pair construct a landscape painting that we would totally hang up at home! 

Jumpy seems to love painting because his tail is wagging the whole time! 

If you're in your late 20's and still not married you have absolutely nothing to worry about. According to science the ideal age to tie the knot is 32!

32 is apparently the optimal age to get married according to Nicholas Wolfinger a scientist who thoroughly analysed the National Survey of Families and Households

"It's no mystery why people who marry as teens face a high risk of divorce. Just recall your high school boyfriend or girlfriend. Scholars have long known that youthful marriage is a strong predictor of divorce" he reveals on the Insitute For Family Studies blog.

He explains that your marriage has the best chance of surviving if you get married at the age of 32.

Anytime before or after increases your chance of divorce.

So if you still in your 20's and freaking out because you haven't found the ideal partner don't worry you've still got time ahead of you.

Talking about weddings, here is one of the greatest propsals of all time...

Otha Anders saved his first penny more than 45 years ago when he found it on the ground.

The coin reminded him to pray and give thanks.

"I became convinced that spotting a lost or dropped penny was an additional God-given incentive reminding me to always be thankful," said Anders, 73. "There have been days where I failed to pray and more often than not, a lost or dropped penny would show up to remind me."

Fifteen five-gallon plastic water jugs and half a million pennies later, Anders on Tuesday deposited $5,136.14 into his account to go toward a recent dental bill.

He cashed in the coins to the Ruston Origin Bank, in Ruston, La.

After that first coin, Anders said his penny pile began to grow and he ultimately stopped spending pennies and always made sure whenever he made a purchase, his change contained at least three to four pennies.

Bank Vice President Jennie Cole said it was not a typical day at the bank when Anders had his collection of pennies rolled in on a dolly, but Anders is a longtime customer who they wanted to help.

"We value his business, as we do all of our customers," she said. "But if we can help Anders with his endeavors, we are happy to do so."

Cole said a machine counted the coins that saves much time, and Origin Bank's part is to help get the pennies counted, so Anders can get to his destination.

"Anders will inform us on where he wants the cashed-in money to be placed," she said.

Cole said the bank will then send the pennies off to the FDIC, and the bank will receive their credit for them.

"I would never spend a penny," he said. "I would break a dollar before giving up a penny."

As a supervisor for in-school suspended children for the Jackson School Board, Anders said his students learned about his penny fascination and would save them up to sell to him.

"But I never allowed anyone, not even my wife nor children, to give me pennies without being compensated," he said. "I wanted the inner satisfaction that God and I acquired this collection."
