TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Tragic house fire has surprisingly happy ending

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Tragic house fire has surprisingly happy ending

Any story that starts off with a house fire usually doesn’t have a happy ending. Except this one!

A couple down in North Carolina, Sean and Kellie, went out to eat for dinner one night a few weeks ago. While they were gone their neighbor happened to notice smoke and a few flames on their back deck. Thinking quickly she ran over to their front door RING camera to communicate with them because she knew they’d get the notification on thier phone (the video below is incredible). They were able to tell her where their dog was inside to get him out.

Once they returned home the fire department had arrived, but the house was sadly a total loss.

The weird twist to this story is that Sean was planning to purpose soon and the ring was INSIDE the house! Luckily once it was safe to go inside he found his fireproof safe with the ring in it. Then decided what better time to pop the question then right there in the driveway…. and she said YES.

Even though they lost a lot… luckily they still have what really matters, each other and their dog.

Happy first day of Fall/Autumn! Today’s mystery why does this season have two names? What’s the difference?

Either Autumn or fall can be used to describe the season between summer and winter. They both mean the same thing in American and British English. Only difference being that fall is used more often in America and that Autumn is considered to be the more formal name for the season.

So if you’re feeling fancy… Happy Autumn.

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: How can you tell if a turtle is male or female?

MUNDANE MYSTERIES: How can you tell if a turtle is male or female?

Unless of course we are talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, most real life turtles all look exactly the same. So how can you tell if they are male or female?

There are two common ways to tell them apart. First is to listen closely. Apparently female turtles will hiss, and male turtles will grunt. The other visual way to tell them apart is by their tail. Female turtles typically have short skinny tails, while males have longer thicker tails.
