You know you’re country living when you’re  just out and about and see a horse drawn carriage. The guy driving had suspenders with no shirt and an old silk top hat.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

Robert Wadlow was the tallest person in history (1918-1940). He was 8 ft 11.1 in tall or 2.72 meters. His great size is due to his pituitary gland having a proliferation of cells. This resulted in increased levels of human growth hormone. 

His size took a toll on him as he required leg braces to walk. 11 days before his death, a faulty brace irritated his ankle and caused a blister and soon a parasitic infection. Doctors tried to treat him with surgery & blood transfusion but his condition worsened. He had auto-immune disorder as well, which meant his immune system attacked healthy cells & tissues. He died in his sleep at age 22.
