This Halloween, Target is releasing a whole line of Halloween costumes specifically for kids with special needs. This new line will feature adaptive Halloween costumes that can fit over kids’ wheelchairs and walkers. In the past, many families have had to adjust Halloween costumes to their kids’ wheelchairs/walker, but now they need to no longer!

Some of the costumes include that of a princess or a pirate on his ship. The princess costume comes with a princess carriage and the pirate costume comes complete with a ship. Both the carriage and ship fit completely over the wheelchair/walker. It also comes with convenient openings in the back to help them get in and out of it.

Special needs kids should be able to enjoy Halloween, too!

Julie Guggemos, senior vice president, Owned Brand Management and Product Design, Target talks in a press statement about this new release. “We’ve seen how little design details in our Cat & Jack adaptive apparel and Pillowfort sensory-friendly pieces can have a huge impact,” she says. “Now we’re bringing that same spirit of inclusivity to our new Hyde & EEK! Boutique kids’ costumes.”

Dog The Bounty Hunter Explains Why Late Wife, Beth Chapman, Chose Medical Cannabis Over Chemo

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

It’s been a few months now since Beth Chapman’s passing and we’re all feeling her absence, especially Dog. During her cancer battle, she was open about her interest and usage of medical cannabis instead of chemotherapy treatments. This was even more evident towards the final days of Beth’s life.

In a new episode of Dog’s Most Wanted, Beth discusses the positive effects of using medical cannabis. Dog has also addressed it in an interview with SurvivorNet. Of course, while cannabis didn’t cure her cancer, it definitely helped ease the pain and make her last few days a lot more manageable!

Why Beth Chose Medical Cannabis

“The day that we started the cannabis treatment, [Beth] hadn’t eaten for nine days. The next day, after two doses, she woke up in the morning and said, ‘Honey, I’m hungry.’ The CBD and the cannabis let her move, let her talk, let her think. It didn’t kill the cancer, but it did lessen the blow,” Dog reveals to SurvivorNet.

Beth addresses her usage of medical cannabis in an episode of Dog’s Most Wanted. She says, “I definitely am able to eat if I stay on it, and I can sleep. If I don’t take it, I’m awake.” One of the main reasons why Beth opted to use medical cannabis instead of chemo was because she just didn’t respond to it. It wasn’t the right treatment for her.

Cannabis gave her a better quality of life

Beth would continue on, “Chemotherapy is not my bag, people. Sorry, that’s not for me. So for me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it will either be taught to me or to you. And I am fine with taking the hit for everyone else. Because I think I know another guy who did the same thing.”

Dog says he was right there supporting Beth’s decision to stop chemo and start medical cannabis 100%. “Beth did not respond to chemotherapy. When you ask the doctor, ‘does this chemo work?’ and he says, ‘each person individually responds to it differently,’ that means it don’t work. You can either live a quality life or a miserable life where you live longer.”

Beth Chapman is not the only celebrity who has been open about her use of medical cannabis during her cancer battle. Olivia Newton-John and her husband, John Easterling, actually grow their own cannabis on a ranch for Olivia to use to manage her cancer.

All of us at DYR miss Beth so much! Prayers to the Chapman family as they continue to mourn their loss.

Celebrate ‘I Love Lucy’ Day With A Little-Known Story About The Show

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Today, October 15th is now officially known as I Love Lucy day! The day where we get to celebrate our beloved Lucille Ball and all the work she’s done for the I Love Lucy series. In celebration of this day, we have a fun fact/story about Lucille’s time on set during I Love Lucy that you may not have known before! It’s pretty interesting.

Before getting into it, it’s important to note that the original release of the series was from 1951 to 1957. This means that back then, times were a lot different and things that are ‘OK’ today, may not have been back then.

An ‘I Love Lucy’ Day Story

So, back in the day, no one was allowed to say the ‘P’ word. Can you guess what ‘P’ word we’re talking about? Pregnant! When Lucy would announce that she was pregnant with Little Ricky, it was deemed much too vulgar of a word to say. She had to say she was “expecting” instead. And that’s not all.

To ensure these standards were met, priests, pastors, and rabbis were present on set during the filming of all the scenes with Lucy’s pregnancy. The title of the episode was even “Lucy Is Enceinte,” which uses the French portrayal of the word instead of just outright saying it. The actual CBS network was the one who deems the word “pregnant” too controversial for airing.

Lucille Ball paves the way for women in television and more

There are many ways how Lucille singlehandedly changed the game for women in television. Even though she may have not been able to call herself pregnant in the show, she won other battles. One of these many ways includes the fact that she was able to cast her own Cuban husband. Despite the fact that CBS was reluctant to show an interracial marriage on television at the time!

It may all sound so weird now considering the world we live in today, but that’s how things were back then! Lucille played a huge role in changing the game for television in general. We have her to thank for many aspects of television today!

Jimmy Carter Discusses Volunteering For Habitat For Humanity At 95 Years Old

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

Former President Jimmy Carter and his wife Rosalynn were in Tennessee this month to help Habitat for Humanity. They have been teaming up with the nonprofit organization for the last 36 years and have helped fix up over 4,000 homes. At the last event, Carter joked that he didn’t expect to live this long. He is 95 years old.

Carter remembers when he started working on the project. Carter and his wife went to New York City to work on an apartment building in 1984. They had already begun working with the Habitat for Humanity, but this sparked the idea for The Carter Work Project.

Carter calls their Habitat for Humanity work a very enjoyable hobby

He told People, “We knew that we had undertaken a very enjoyable hobby on the side. We stayed busy doing other things — including Nobel Peace Prize-winning diplomatic work — but we devoted 36 years to Habitat.” He continued, “One of the things Jesus taught was: If you have any talents, try to utilize them for the benefit of others. That’s what Rose and I have both tried to do.”

They are both extremely dedicated to the cause. No one could deny this fact earlier this month when they arrived at a Habitat for Humanity event just hours after Carter fell at home. He had to get 14 stitches and had a black eye. Four years ago, he also went through cancer and still kept going with his important work.

He also talks about being 95 years old

Carter had thought his time here was over when he was going through cancer treatments. He said he was surprisingly at ease at the time. Now, he talks about being 95 years old. “It’s hard to live until you’re 95 years old,” he tells PEOPLE. “I think the best explanation for that is to marry the best spouse: someone who will take care of you and engage and do things to challenge you and keep you alive and interested in life.”

The couple has been married since 1946 and it sure seems like they keep each other young. While they love to stay in the public eye with events like Habitat for Humanity, they also like to stay at home and enjoy quiet days in their house.

Next year, they are planning to travel to the Dominican Republic with Habitat for Humanity.

Decorating Early For Christmas Is Actually Good For Your Health

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

If you enjoy decorating early for Christmas, there is some good news! Some people are very strict in waiting to decorate for Christmas until after Thanksgiving or until the start of December. Others will happily start decorating in November or even October! If you’re in the decorating early camp, it turns out it may make you a happier person.

Happy feelings from your childhood or anything that brings nostalgia can reduce stress and anxiety. According to Southern Living, psychoanalyst Steve McKeown said, “In a world full of stress and anxiety, people like to associate with things that make them happy and Christmas decorations evoke those strong feelings of the childhood.”

Decorating for Christmas early helps ease stress and anxiety

He continues, “Decorations are simply an anchor or pathway to those old childhood magical emotions of excitement. So putting up those Christmas decorations early extends the excitement!” So feel free to get out those Christmas decorations as early as you want to and don’t let the Scrooges mess with your fun.
