We are where nostalgia lives

A man named Alex Bowen took matters into his own hands when he walked into his local Waffle House and realized the employee, who was supposed to be cooking up the orders, was actually asleep in the corner. Real professional.

Bowen went behind the counter and began cooking a meal for himself in that Waffle House while taking photos of the act and posting them to his Facebook page. Bowen credits vodka for giving him the guts to actually do that. “Couldn’t sleep so I went to waffle house….guess what…everyone on shift was asleep,” Bowen’s Facebook post read.

Facebook

Bowen told WISTV that he had made his way to his local Waffle House in West Columbia, South Carolina very early on Thursday morning and waited at the register for 10 minutes without seeing an employee in sight. That’s when Bowen noticed an employee sleeping in the corner and decided, let’s cook up some late night (or early morning) goodies!

“Got hot on the grill with a double Texas bacon cheesesteak melt with extra pickles,” Bowen told WISTV. “When I was done I cleaned the grill, collected my ill-gotten sandwich and rolled on out … I give all the credit to my old friend vodka. I wouldn’t normally have done that.”

Facebook

Bowen said that he showed up to the same Waffle House later in the day and gave them $5 for the meal. With this being said, a spokesperson for Waffle House confirmed that they had suspended the sleeping employees for a week after the incident. At least Bowen was able to cure his hunger and late-night boredom!

“[I] guess old Waffle House [is] just gonna have to take the ‘L’ on that one,” he said.

Facebook

So far since Bowen has posted this story on his Facebook, the post has racked up over 6,000 reactions, almost 6,000 shares, and almost 500 comments of people tagging their friends in it and calling Bowen an “absolute legend”. Many others were also saying that “when hunger strikes, you just have to take charge,” which couldn’t be further from the truth!

Despite this hilarious story, Waffle House released a statement that customers shouldn’t get behind the counter, but the situation apparently served as a job-approval for him. “For safety reasons, our customers should never have to go behind the counter. Rather, they should get a quality experience delivered by friendly associates… We are reviewing this incident and will take appropriate disciplinary action. In a related note, obviously Alex has some cooking skills, and we’d like to talk to him about a job since we may have something for him.”

We are where nostalgia lives

It has been reported that Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has been involved in a car accident which occurred nearby the Queen’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk on Thursday. The crash did involve another vehicle and police properly assessed the scene.

Prince Philip says that he was driving a Range Rover and was pulling out of a driveway and onto A149 when the accident occurred. According to sources, the Range Rover that Philip was driving was overturned, but he left the accident unharmed.

BBC

Royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell reported that Philip was completely conscious, just shaken and shocked at what had transpired. Witchell also reports that the two people in the other car involved in the accident were being treated for minor injuries. Since the accident, Philip has seen a doctor for evaluation.

The Queen and Prince Philip had been staying at that estate since Christmastime, but he did not attend the Royal Family’s Christmas Day service at Sandringham this past holiday.

Philip retired from service in August of 2017. His retirement comes decades after he had spent so much time supporting the Queen in her charity events and organizations. The Buckingham Palace has reported that the Duke has completed 22,219 solo engagements since 1952, a remarkable achievement.

While he has surely and deservedly retired from his solo ventures, he continues to be by Queen Elizabeth II‘s side in addition to supporting other members of the royal family at certain events and church services.

Many UK-residents and people from all over the world are praying for well wishes for both Prince Philip and the other people involved in the accident, that they recover quickly.

Macaulay Culkin Has Finally Opened Up About His Past Relationship With Michael Jackson

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

We are where nostalgia lives

The relationship between Macaulay Culkin and Michael Jackson was one of the most talked-about relationships of that time period. MJ was an adult and Culkin was barely 10 years old, a child star. To the outside world, that relationship seemed creepy and weird, and rumors were circulating that MJ after he was accused of multiple child sexual abuse allegations (not with Culkin).

The reason why their relationship seemed so odd is that Culkin would often visit MJ’s home and there is little to no information about what went on there. However, Culkin, who is 38 years old, has confirmed that it was not the relationship everyone thinks it is.

Read what Culkin had to say about his friendship with MJ below:

“We were friends. It’s one of my friendships that people question only because of the fact that he was the most famous person in the world… I was a peerless person, nobody at my Catholic school even had this much idea of what I was going through and he was the person who had been through the exact same thing and wanted to make sure I wasn’t alone.”

Culkin added, “He was f*****g awesome. He was funny, he was sweet – people didn’t know how funny he was. He liked prank calling people, because obviously, he was good with his voice. He was hilarious, he was charming and silly.”

YouTube

“He was the kind of person who’d been through the exact same frickin’ thing and wanted to make sure I wasn’t alone,” Culkin added, in reference to the fact that they were both child stars, and MJ’s childhood wasn’t exactly sunshine and rainbows. He wanted to be there for Culkin should his upbringing be plagued by the negatives that child stardom brings.

As stated previously, it did not help MJ’s case that he faced sexual abuse allegations from a boy around Culkin’s age. He was never charged for any allegations.

With this being said, there’s even further proof that their relationship was just a typical friendship. MJ had made Culkin the godfather of his three children, including Paris. He has a matching tattoo with her as well. The two have a very tight-knit relationship.

“I am close with Paris,” Culkin stated, “I’m going to warn you now, I am very protective of her, so just look out. I am a very open book when it comes to things, but like with her, she is beloved by me,” he said on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast.

Actor Rob Lowe Opens Up About Taking Care Of His Sick Mother

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

We are where nostalgia lives

Recently, actor Rob Lowe opened up about being a caregiver for his sick mother and how difficult it can be to become a caregiver for a loved one. At the moment, around 40 million people in America are unpaid caregivers for a family member or loved one. Many people know that being a caregiver can become a full-time job.

A lot of baby boomers these days are opting to live at home instead of going to a retirement home or other care facility. This means that children or other family members must step in to take care of them. Caregivers not only end up spending money on their sick loved one but lots of time and this can be stressful.

When Rob was in his thirties, his mother was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Rob and his brothers cared for their mother. He said becoming a caregiver was not a role he was expecting, especially so early in life and he wasn’t prepared for it. Rob said that when he and his brothers became their mother’s caregivers, they did everything they could to support her. They managed her paperwork, medications, schedules, and in-house help. But for many Americans, they don’t have the resources or money to even pay for in-house help.

Rob said that he felt very overwhelmed, even though he had all of the support and the resources he could ask for. Rob admits that many caregivers in America aren’t as lucky as he was. Many caregivers do it all alone, without any support from others. This can lead to financial and health problems for the caregiver themselves. His best advice for caregivers is that they need to embrace self-care. If you stop taking care of yourself, you cannot effectively take care of your loved one.

Many times caregivers will stop eating healthy, exercising, risk their financial security and career, and skip out on sleep and fun times to help their loved one. While this can be admirable, it can also mean putting yourself at risk of getting sick. Stress is the number one cause of many health issues.

A study done in 2017 by Embracing Carers found that about half of unpaid caregivers in the United States suffer from depression, sleep troubles, issues with their weight and other health problems. Other studies have found that many caregivers also give up their personal money by missing work or paying for things for their loved one.

Rob’s Advice For Other Caregivers

Rob has collaborated with EMD Serono and Embracing Carers, two organizations who help increase awareness about the challenges caregivers face. They help many caregivers who don’t know where else to turn.

Rob has said, “From my own experience, I can assure you: The person you’re caring for needs you to be at your best. If you don’t take care of yourself, you won’t have the energy or the means to provide the reliable care that your loved ones need.”

He urges other caregivers to ask for help. If you don’t have the support of others in your family, try going to friends or support groups in person or online. It can simply help to vent about the situation to someone who understands.

Rob also suggests learning to be more present. Caregiving can be very overwhelming, and you can get bogged down with all of the details and schedules. Be present and remember why you are doing this. You love the person who is sick. Be there with them and live in the moment.

Betty White At 97, Reveals Her Hilarious Secret To A Long Life

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

We are where nostalgia lives

Betty White has the longest television career of any female entertainer, standing strong today at 97 years old officially. We’re so happy to see this joyous, beautiful woman still happy and healthy after all these years and we’re even more delighted to know her secret to a long life, which is actually pretty hysterical.

White sat down with news anchor Katie Couric when she had just turned 96, Betty explained what her secret to a long life was. This was only after Couric had given White a stuffed animal sloth for her birthday, noting that White was a huge animal lover after her experience with a similar real-life sloth at the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, California.

YouTube / Yahoo! News

So, what is Betty White’s secret to a long, meaningful life? Read below:

“First of all, keep busy and don’t focus everything on you. That wears out pretty fast. It’s not hard to find things you’re interested in, but enjoy them and indulge them. And I think that keeps you on your toes,” she explains.

White simply explains to “enjoy life” and focus more on the positive than the negative. With this being said, it’s no secret that she prefers a diet of hot dogs, french fries, and vodka to keep her going and happy!

OWN

At the time of being 96 years old and on a diet of carbs and alcohol, it doesn’t seem to be affecting the actress at all. According to reports, White has never suffered a heart attack or has experienced any cardiovascular issues. All things considered, science claims that fried foods (like french fries) are often linked to doubling the risk of premature death and any processed meats are linked to type 2 diabetes or metabolic issues.

It is safe to say that Betty White has beaten the statistics, unscathed!

TV Land

White has revealed to Harper’s Bazaar that she only indulges in one glass of vodka on the rocks with a lemon nightly, but will occasionally indulge in a second when she’s out with friends. When it comes to drinking more than that though, she simply says, “I don’t really like to feel it.”

With White drinking so perfectly balanced and in moderation, the vodka is actually lowering health risks for her such as diabetes and gall bladder stones. She has defied the odds!
