World’s Oldest Yoga Teacher

“The yoga teacher in the front of the room lay on the floor, her hands resting on her upper thighs. She lifted her right leg high in the air, foot flexed. Then she grabbed her right foot in her right hand and brought her leg toward her face as she raised her upper body a few inches off the ground. Students in class smiled in amazement as they watched the teacher’s knee graze her nose. It wasn’t just the pose that was amazing — it was the teacher’s age. Bernice Bates is 91 years old, and she’s more flexible than people who are a third of her age. “If you can’t quite meet your knee, that’s all right,” Bates told her class, gently. Guinness World Records recently awarded Bates the title of ‘Oldest Yoga Teacher.’ While there might be other, older yogis somewhere in the world, Bates completed the lengthy documentation process required by Guinness.” w/ photo

Los Angeles In The 50s

“Motoring through LA in the early 1950s one’s shocked to see freeways that are wide open, streetcars, even Model A Fords still on the streets, a bustling downtown and the first malls, a Ford and Chevrolet Factory and it all looks so clean.” — mrpitv

Attack Of The Yellow Blob!

Residents of a Derbyshire village were left baffled when mysterious yellow blobs began springing up in grassland. The slime-like substance was spotted in fields and in gardens near The Settlement in Ockbrook. Alan Newman, from Erewash Borough Council, who was called to deal with the issue, said it was eventually found to be the slime mould Fuligo Septica. He said the mould, which resembles scrambled egg, could move very slowly along the ground.” w/ photo
