James Corden has taken many celebrities out for a drive for his Carpool Karaoke segment on “The Late, Late Show.” But he hasn’t taken anyone for a ride in his car quite like Sir Paul McCartney.

McCartney, 76, joined Corden in singing some classic Beatles tunes like “Penny Lane” and “Blackbird.” Additionally, he promoted his own songs from his upcoming album Egypt Station, one of them being an already released single called “Come On to Me.”

The reason why this particular Carpool Karaoke segment was so inspiring and emotional is because the two got deep into McCartney and Beatles history. They even stopped by the real Penny Lane! McCartney added his autograph to one of the signs and they even took selfies with it. They even took a detour to McCartney’s childhood home.

McCartney was more than happy to explain all the details of his own home to Corden. He even played a couple tunes on the piano! Afterwards, the two went out on the town for a bit to meet some local fans before getting back in the car and resuming the actual karaoke.

Corden wasn’t afraid to poke a little fun at the Beatles history by dressing up in some of the most notable Beatles costumes. He sported the mop-top hairstyle and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” colorful military garb. They both definitely got a kick out of that one!

The mood turned a bit somber when McCartney began to reflect on the meaning of one very popular Beatles tune. He had a dream where his late mother visited him and told him everything would be alright. Additionally, she said to just ‘let it be.’ And that’s when the classic Beatles song “Let It Be” was born. The pair sang that tune together and it left Corden in tears. “That’s the power of music,” McCartney said. “It’s weird, isn’t it, how it can do that to you.”

Ultimately, they ended up at a pub for a surprise Paul McCartney concert. Every single person in the pub, young and old, knew exactly who he was. He sang a ton of familiar Beatles tunes and everyone was stunned.

Woman Shares Photo Of Her “Ugly” Engagement Ring And People Online Immediately Freak Out

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

We are where nostalgia lives

Getting engaged is one of the most exciting moments in a couple’s relationship. Proposals can take a lot of time and effort. Some people stage elaborate proposals that include many steps or other people to execute it perfectly.

However, as exciting as getting engaged might be, some people can get hung up on certain things. Maybe they didn’t like having an audience. Or maybe they didn’t like the proposal location. Or, the biggest issue some people take with a proposal is the ring. Engagement rings are meant to be what the bride might like, but not every future husband has the best taste.

Often times, women might complain about the size or style of their ring. They might think that the diamond’s carat isn’t big enough. People tend to get criticized for this kind of disappointment. But one woman has gotten support from people online after sharing her distress over her engagement ring.

Twitter

Twitter user @chaeronaea shared a story of one woman’s engagement ring woes after reading it on Reddit. The woman (who remains unnamed) has since deleted the post, but on the internet, things tend to live on forever.

Twitter

In the Reddit thread, the woman describes the happiness she felt during her engagement, but she just had one major issue. Her ring. She wasn’t trying to complain that the diamond was too small… because her fiance didn’t get her a ring with a diamond.

If you can believe it, her fiance got her a ring with amber stone. Now, amber can be pretty in certain settings and styles, but in this case, the woman just did not feel that the amber ring was her style at all.

Twitter

Not only did she take issue with the color of the stone, she also felt that it was too large and looked gaudy. It was cut in the shape of a heart and the woman is not a fan of heart-shaped jewelry.

The reason that the woman took to Reddit was to see what advice others might have had for her about talking to her fiance about the ring. She also wanted to know if she was overreacting. She got an overwhelming amount of support. Many people agreed that the ring was ugly. While the original post has been hidden, many have responded to the Twitter thread.

Twitter

One Twitter user replied:

my favorite thing about this is that the ring is exactly as she describes it but you still get just, gobsmacked when you see it

The woman did eventually update everyone on Reddit to say that she had gotten a chance to talk to her fiance and he understood her concerns.

Twitter

Do you think the woman is out of line to be upset by this engagement ring? Or do you think that is she is completely fair to be upset?

8 Tips You Need To Know For Creating A Simple In-Case-Of-Emergency Plan

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

We are where nostalgia lives

No one likes to plan for when they will no longer be around, but emergencies do happen. If you are the primary point person in your home, you’re in charge of more than just the bills. You make your house run smoothly every day. A lot goes into that, maybe more than your spouse and children even know. If that is the case, you need to have an in-case-of-emergency plan!

Whether you pass away unexpectedly or an accident happens that leaves you unable to execute important day-to-day functions, you need a plan in place. “When life throws you a curve, being organized is important,” says Nancy Doyle, CFA, author of the forthcoming book, Manage Your Financial Life. “Our financial lives are very complex and with privacy laws, the way they are it can be very difficult to access a loved one’s email and accounts if there’s an emergency.” Nancy Doyle has given tips for creating a simple ICE plan – check out the tips below!

1. Have all of your paperwork in one place

You need an ICE File (in-case-of-emergency), so you need to grab all of the important paperwork for that and keep them together. This should include birth certificates, death certificates, marriage certificates, military records, social security cards, and any legal documents (power of attorney, health care directive, mortgage, and the titles to your house and car).

2. Have photocopies of your IDs

In this file, you’ll also want photocopies of your driver’s license, passport, and your credit cards.

3. Make sure everything is stored safely

The biggest thing here is where you store all of this. Important documents should always be in a safe place, in case you’re robbed or if there ever was a fire. You can get a fireproof box to keep in your home that comes with a lock. If you don’t want it in the house, a safety deposit box at the bank is a safe location as well.

Another important factor is you need to tell someone else where this box is in the house and/or at the bank. Either tell your spouse, children, close friends, parents, and/or all of the above. So long as they are a deeply trusted person in your life, it doesn’t hurt to let them know.

4. Make an emergency contact list

Now, this isn’t a list of people who should be contacted in your friends or family. This is a list for the family member (spouse, child) that is taking care of things after something has happened to you. It will be a list of people they should know to contact. So, you’ll include your lawyer, banker, investment adviser, insurance agent, and your accountant. You can neatly list this out on an Excel spreadsheet. It is smart to include their name, cell phone number, office number, email address, and the company they work for.

5. Make a list of your important accounts

Pxhere

To streamline your ICE plan, you will want to keep a list of all of your accounts, so your loved ones know what to tackle. You will list your bank accounts, brokerage accounts, and investments. Include all of the information (account number) someone would need to access this.

You can also list all of your open accounts, like credit cards, cable & internet, electric, and any memberships you pay for monthly/annually.

6. Leave instructions for bills

Flickr

Look at your monthly and annual bills and make a list, breaking them down by how often they are paid and what account they are paid from. If anything is set up for automatic payments, make an annotation of that in your file.

7. Share your passwords

Flickr

In order for this all to work, if you are no longer around or able to take of things, the new person in charge will need access to everything. Give them your email passwords, the login information for all of your bills that you pay online, and any security codes that they may possibly need.

8. Finally, walk someone through the entire plan

At the end of the day, you need to walk someone through this plan step by step. You can show them how to login into everything, how and when to call people from your emergency list, show them where the box is and how to access it. Have them run through a mock trial and see if they have any questions along the way.

Do “As Seen On TV” Products Actually Work? See 4 Easy At-Home DIY Dupes

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

We are where nostalgia lives

So, do “As Seen on TV” products actually work? And if they do, are they worth the money? Some of these products aren’t just one cost – they’re 3 installments of $29.99. We’ve all seen the ads for the last 20 years for various products and we’ve all wanted to know if any of them are as easy to use as their marketing suggests. Surely they have to be good if retailers keep cranking them out, right?

Household Hacker decided to put four different “As Seen on TV” products to the test to see if they actually work

Household Hacker

Not only did they put these products to the test, they also found the easy at-home DIY for each product as well. So, which one is better, the product or the DIY project? Find out below!

“As Seen on TV” Product #1: Egg-Tastic

Egg-Tastic/Household Hacker

The Egg-Tastic “instantly heats and keeps eggs at the perfect cooking temperature” and creates “tasty scrambled eggs in as little as one minute. Even makes perfect poached eggs.”

The allure to this is that you don’t need to dirty up any pans and that it cooks much faster in the microwave than on the stove.

In the test run, Household Hacker follows the instructions for 2 eggs (1:10 in the microwave) and the eggs came out pretty much exactly as advertised.

However, if you don’t want to spend $10+ on this product, you can find the supplies in your kitchen (most likely). All you need is a big mug and a ventilated Tupperware lid that is about the same size as the top of the mug. Follow the same instructions and you’ll get the exact same results.

“As Seen on TV” Product #2: Rodent Sheriff

Rodent Sheriff/Household Hacker

Got pesky rodents? Rodent Sheriff is “safe to spray in your home or garden. Scent will rid of rats almost instantly” and it is “effective against mice, raccoons, roaches and more.”

However, this product isn’t long-lasting. After it is sprayed around the entire home, you will need to spray again about every 7 days for persistent pests.

You can create the spray at home (for less) by using peppermint oil, a cup of water, and a few droplets of dish soap. Not only is this less expensive and produces the same results, you can also create more at home.

If the spray has too strong of a scent or requires too much work because of how often you need to spray, you can also plant mint near all of your home’s entryways.

“As Seen on TV” Product #3: DrainWig

DrainWig/Household Hacker

There is nothing worse than a clog in your drain. The DrainWig “Catches hair. Prevents clogs.” The product is supposed to go in in seconds and you can leave it there for 2-4 months. Remove (and be really grossed out) and replace.

If you need something to get rid of a clog ASAP, Household Hacker has a quick fix. All you need is a zip tie! You’ll cut the zip tie up to mirror a different de-clogger, the Drain Snake, and create a little handle with a separate zip tie.

The zip tie method will remove a clog instantly and will also probably make you gag after doing it. Unlike the DrainWig, you’ll need to toss out the zip tie instantly, so it can’t stay in your drain for 2-4 months.

“As Seen on TV” Product #4: Speed Out

Speed Out/Household Hacker

If you have a damaged screw you need to get out, Speed Out “you can easily remove any stripped screw in ten seconds or less.”

The product claims it is as easy as two steps, but each step has some substeps that make it a little lengthy, but it is still very easy to use. Side A of the Speed Out drills out the damaged area on the screw, while side B digs in and extracts the screw.

However, out of all the “As Seen on TV” products, there are a plethora of DIY examples for this. You can use a rubber band method, a hammer method, pliers, or the duct tape method for this one. Household Hacker shows how to use each method in the video below.

6 Scary Summer Health Dangers You Probably Ignore Every Year

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

We are where nostalgia lives

Summer is here and can be one of the most fun seasons of the year. BBQing, swimming, parties, going camping or on vacation… the list goes on. However, there are certain health dangers that come around in the summer that can be easy to ignore.

Here are some of the top health dangers you should be aware of this summer.

1. Eyeball sunburns

You might be careful not to get a sunburn, but did you know that you can get a sunburn on your eyeballs? This condition is called photokeratitis and it can happen within just a few hours of exposure to a strong sun. Make sure you wear UV-protective sunglasses every time you go outside or you may be at risk for cataracts, macular degeneration or growths on your eyes. Remember to always wear sunscreen too and reapply every few hours to protect your skin. Have someone put sunscreen on your back and make sure you don’t miss any areas. You can get burnt even on cloudy days.

2. E. Coli

If you love swimming at your local beach, you might be at risk of catching E.coli. Being exposed to fecal contamination and bacteria is very common at the beach where birds and bugs are swimming as well. Be sure to cover any cuts you have and wash your hands after getting out of the water every time. You also risk contamination in the sand, not just the water.

3. Heat stroke/heat exhaustion

When the weather heats up, you must know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Extreme heat kills 175 people in the United States every year and the elderly and the young are more at risk. If you have been in the heat, don’t ignore signs like dizziness, headache, nausea, fatigue, and sweating. If your body temperature reaches a dangerous 104 degrees, you may stop sweating. Stay cool in the shade or indoors, drink lots of water and listen to your body’s warning signs and watch for signs in others.

4. Drowning

Additionally, when the weather gets warmer, you may want to swim more. Never swim alone and watch out for others. Drowning is very common in pools, lakes, and oceans in the summer months. Make sure you swim with a lifeguard or trusted person.

5. Alcohol-induced dehydration

Summer parties might be plenty and the drinks may be flowing, but watch out for alcohol-induced dehydration. It is easier to get dehydrated while drinking in the heat. Keep your drinks to a minimum and stay hydrated with water while you drink alcohol.

6. Food poisoning

At summer parties as well, make sure to check the food. Spoiled food is a cause of an illness that spikes in the summer because food tends to sit outdoors.
