Lisa Marie Just Released A Duet With Her Father And It’s The Best Thing I’ve Heard In Ages

Lisa Marie Just Released A Duet With Her Father And It’s The Best Thing I’ve Heard In Ages

The loss of Elvis Presley more than 40 years ago rocked the world, as his fans were left devastated when he passed away. His music lives on, however, with daughter Lisa Marie Presley, who recently released a duet with her father called “Where No One Stands Alone.” The song is a touching and emotional tribute to an iconic music legend.

The song is part of a new Elvis compilation that celebrates gospel music, with the tune showcasing Lisa Marie’s talent. The song is among 14 tracks on the album, and includes songs from his albums “How Great Thou Art” (1967) and “He Touched Me” (1972), combined with new instrumentation and vocals from Darlene Love and Cissy Houston.

The duet with Lisa Marie, on a song that originally came out in 1967, is special to the late singer’s daughter, which she explained in the album’s liner notes: “It was a very powerful and moving experience to sing with my father.”

She added: “The lyrics speak to me and touch my soul. I’m certain that the lyrics spoke to my father in much the same way.”

“No One Stands Alone” lyrics:

  • Once I stood in the night
  • With my head bowed low
  • In the darkness as black as could be
  • And my heart felt alone and I cried oh Lord
  • Don’t hide your face from me
  • Like a king I may live in a palace so tall
  • With great riches to call my own
  • But I don’t know a thing
  • In this whole wide world
  • That’s worse than being alone
  • Hold my hand all the way, every hour every day
  • Come here to the great unknown
  • Take my hand, let me stand
  • Where no one stands alone
  • Take my hand, let me stand
  • Where no one stands alone
  • Lisa Marie further explained her father’s love of gospel music, sharing with fans: “This was his favorite genre — no question about it. He seemed to be at his most passionate, and at peace while singing gospel. He would truly come alive — whether he was singing just for himself and me at home, or on stage in front of thousands of fans.”Lisa Marie discussed her father during an interview on the British talk show Lorraine, sharing: “I wouldn’t say I talk to him. I just remember everything. I can sort of pull out of the files whatever memories I have and stuff like that. And occasionally ask for help. Which was the case with this record. I just felt like a hand came down to me, it felt like that a little bit.”

The result is a powerful duet with her father.

Among the many people who weighed in with comments on the music video were some huge fans, as one person noted: “Elvis could do Country, Gospel the Blues and Rock n Roll… most artists today can only do one style. No wonder he is known as The King.”

Another commenter shared: “Her producer said the entire crew was crying during rehearsal, they had to stop because Lisa was crying. The Holy Spirit was there!!! I know there are no tears in heaven but I can see tears of happiness in Elvis eyes today. I’m sure he would be so proud of her. Love this.”

 

 

63-Year-Old Woman Reveals The Seven Tricks She Used To Lose Half Her Weight

63-Year-Old Woman Reveals The Seven Tricks She Used To Lose Half Her Weight

People will be quick to tell you that losing weight when you’re middle-aged or older is difficult. But as you’re about to learn, it is not impossible. With the right tricks and changes to your lifestyle, you can reach your dream weight, even if you’re “over the hill.” But don’t take it from me. 63-year-old Diane Naylor made it happen and is now revealing her secrets to help you do the same.

When Naylor moved from Fresno to Oakhurst, California four years ago, she wanted to change things up. Naylor, now 63, found it challenging to meet new people and try new activities because the move had been difficult for her. And besides, weighing 400 pounds made it hard for her to get outside and enjoy the beautiful sunsets, but she didn’t want to give up.

“I felt miserable and depressed because of my weight,” Naylor told TODAY. “I wasn’t active at all, and I couldn’t do all of the things I wanted to.”

Although Naylor had tried all the fad diets before, this time, she was determined to lose weight so she could enjoy the California lifestyle she always wanted to have.

One day while watching an episode of “Castle,” dialogue in the show inspired her to change.

“One of the medical examiners was telling the lead actress she should follow her dreams. He pointed to the corpses and said, ‘All those people had dreams but their time ran out, so don’t let that happen to you.’ It was like a light bulb went off. I had a lot of dreams, too, and I wanted to accomplish them.”

The next day, Naylor woke up feeling ready to take on the world. She looked for strategies and help so she could shed weight and live an outdoorsy life like she always wanted. And over the course of time, she lost a whopping 225 pounds. That was more than half her weight at her heaviest.

These are the seven simple tricks Diane Naylor used to shed hundreds of pounds quickly.

  1. Find support

When Naylor lost fifty pounds on her own, she joined Taking Off Pounds Sensibly and hadn’t looked back since.

  1. Don’t procrastinate.

“Don’t put it off! No one gets any younger, and the younger you are, the easier it is. I started at 59, which proves anyone can do it. Why start six months from now? Start today!”

  1. Try new food.

“I learned how to eat fish. I didn’t care for it before, but I bought an air fryer, which helped me cook it without grease and I actually like the way it tastes.”

  1. Take it a meal at a time.

“Candy, popcorn, and ice cream are still temptations for me. Staying healthy is a constant, everyday decision.”

  1. Don’t diet.

Learn what works for you by doing it day after day. Don’t follow someone else’s plan about what you should and should not eat.

  1. Small changes matter.

Give yourself credit for all of your progress. Even if a win seems small, cheer yourself on for improving.

  1. Never give up.

“It might take six or eight weeks for the scale to move, but during that time, you’ll see the inches coming off of your body.”

 

Woman Reaches Towards The Elephants At The Zoo — Gets An Unforgettable Experience

Elephants are more intelligent than – well some people! But in this video, we see that elephants also like to have fun.

The video was posted in 2013 on YouTube and features a woman playing catch with an elephant!

The game of ‘toss the rock’ continues for about two minutes before the elephant walks off.

I wonder if the elephant thought the woman had lost the rock and he was just trying to give it back to her!

Elephants will show emotion by hugging each other with their trunks, and we have seen momma elephants fiercely protect their young.

The most startling thing for me was to watch elephants mourn the loss of a member of their herd.

Take a look at this video!

In some cases, it even looked like the elephant was crying!

WARNING SIGNS OF A STROKE – PLEASE READ

WARNING SIGNS OF A STROKE – PLEASE READ

I URGE YOU ALL TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LIFE BY KNOWING AND PASSING ON THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION.

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

>>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<<

Thank God for the sense to remember the ‘3’ steps, STR. Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. Chicken Soup)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out his tongue. If the tongue is

‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

I have done my part. Will you?

I Never Knew There Was A Way To Get A Slow Cooker To Clean Itself Until She Showed Me This Trick

I Never Knew There Was A Way To Get A Slow Cooker To Clean Itself Until She Showed Me This Trick

Slow cookers can do so much for you. If you’re a busy person (a hard-working professional, a busy stay-at-home mom or dad, or just someone who doesn’t like to spend hours on end in the kitchen), a slow cooker or crockpot can help save you hours. Not only are these set-it-and-forget-it cooking gadgets wonderful for making stews and roasts, but they can also cook while you’re at the office or taking your child to daycare – just flip the switch and let it do the work while you’re away from the kitchen.

If you’re a fan of slow cookers (and if you’re not, you need to browse AWM for some great crockpot recipes), you know it can be annoying to clean them after one use. But according to Sar from Life Should Cost Less, you can save even more time by having your slow cooker clean itself. Yes, you read that correctly, these devices can clean themselves, and we’re going to teach you just how to do it.

Let’s get started. First, you need to turn your slow cooker off. You could unplug your device if that makes you feel better. Plus, wait until you cannot feel any heat coming from the gadget.

Then fill your slow cooker with water. You want to fill it so that the ring of foodstuff is submerged. Make sure this is a few inches down from the top, so it is not overfilled when you put it to work for itself.

Next, you need to pour a generous portion of white vinegar into the pot. One cup of vinegar should do the job.

Then pour a cup of baking soda into the slow cooker. This will cause a chemical reaction. Pour it slowly, so it doesn’t all fizz up at once.

When the fizz has started to dissipate, it is time to move onto the next step. You’ve done what you need to get the job done. Now it is time for the machine to work for itself. You’re going to make it work for its rent in other words.

Turn your slow cooker back on and set it to the “low” setting. Then let it “cook” itself clean over the next four to eight hours.

After an overnight soak, the grime and foodstuff should have come free from the side of the cooker. Now all you have to do is dump it out and rinse it with fresh water. Then you’re ready to use your slow cooker again the next time you’re in need of a convenient and delicious meal.

If you’re in need of more proof to see that this method works, the YouTube video included below should do the trick. About 200,000 people have watched the how-to video (at the time of this writing) with hundreds more watching it every day. People have tried it and tested it and shared their results in the comments. Here’s what people wrote about it.

“I tried this today on some baked-on food residue that I couldn’t otherwise get off the crock pot, and it totally worked! I let it run on low for 8 hours before attempting to clean it with just some Dawn and a paper towel. I am amazed! Thanks for the tip and video demonstration!”

Poor Dog Passes Away After Owner With Dementia Unintentionally Forgets To Feed Him

Pets are always a responsibility to their owners but unfortunately for a chihuahua named Mojo, his owner had forgotten about him.

Mojo was severely malnourished and sadly passed away recently as his elderly owner had forgotten to feed him.

His owner had dementia so he was isolated in a room separately from Mojo.

Mojo was found alive but it was already too late.

Word regarding Mojo’s death eventually got around and a Facebook page was created to remind people to be more aware of their surroundings, which included their pets.

Her 12lb Baby Broke All The Records, But It’s What She Did During Labor That Is Making Headlines

Her 12lb Baby Broke All The Records, But It’s What She Did During Labor That Is Making Headlines

Giving birth to a record-breaking 12.6 pound baby is worthy of plenty of praise, but this mom just took that impressive feat one step further: she gave birth without any any pain relief. Little Parker Bell was, according to the staff at Blacktown Hospital in Western Sydney, not that little at all. He was, in fact, the heaviest baby born there — and he arrived before his due date.

Parker’s mom, Nikki, handled the labor and delivery like a pro, taking no pain relievers in the process and experiencing “no complications,” according to the hospital.

Nikki was remarkably calm about the baby’s size, telling news.com.au: “I’m sure all births hurt, whether it’s 1.7kg of 5.7kg — they all hurt.”

She also told News Corp that perhaps Parker’s size will serve him well in the future, noting: “Hopefully he will be a bit of a football player, maybe a front rower, that’ll keep his dad happy.”

Many people weighed in online about the birth story, with one mother noting: “This little cutie weighs more than my twins put together at almost a month old.” Another commenter remarked: “Women’s bodies are amazing! Well done first and foremost to the mummy but also to the birthing staff that helped this mummy do her job and allow her body to do its thing!”

Others, however, didn’t find this all that impressive, with one person commenting: “beautiful baby, congrats. But millions of women give birth without drugs and to big babies too. But he is a cutie pie. God bless him.”

Another mom shared her own big baby birth experience, writing: “I gave birth to an 11 lb 8 1/2 baby boy in 1986; he was the biggest baby born in the hospital… it didn’t make the news but he sure was the talk of the hospital for quite a while he was in the special care unit and was wearing 6 month plus clothes.”

Another commenter shared that their hospital roommate delivered a record-breaking baby as well, noting: “In October 1984 when I had my daughter, my roommate delivered a 13 + pound boy without pain relief. They had to dress him in 6 month clothes to take him home.”

One dad weighed in on the marvel of labor and delivery and paid his respect to all women, noting: “Women have such high pain thresholds. Men can’t deal with a cold. Myself included. Seen all four of my kids born, three of them also without any painkillers and all three were 10lb +. It’s unbelievable.”

One person noted on the Daily Mail’s coverage of the baby story: “He is a very large baby. He doesn’t look like a newborn at all. That said, I’m surprised that he was the biggest the hospital has ever seen. 11 to 13 pound babies are large, but not freakishly uncommon. I have an uncle who was close to 12 pounds when he was born (in the 50s) and my husband has an aunt who had four daughters who were all in the 10 to 12 pound range (back in the 70s). The record breaking babies are generally in the mid to high teens or even the early 20s.”

When A Bear Pushed Its Way Into Their Home, This Little Pup Made The Ultimate Sacrifice

When A Bear Pushed Its Way Into Their Home, This Little Pup Made The Ultimate Sacrifice

It’s no mystery that dogs are loyal to their owners, but this pup went above and beyond, risking his life to save his family. The North Carolina dog named Pickles is being called a hero for standing his ground against an intruder to protect his owners. Pickles was just five pounds, but that diminutive size didn’t stop the toy poodle from giving everything to protect those around him.

Tiffany Merrill explained the details of what happened when a bear broke into their home last week, when upon opening the door to let her dog outside, the bear pushed its way in.

Tiffany told WRAL: “I started yelling for my kids, ‘Shut your doors! Shut your doors! There’s a bear in the house!’”

The dog then came back inside, with Tiffany explaining: “He started barking and got the bear’s attention and got the bear outside,” adding, “He saved my life.”

Pickles was no match for the bear, unfortunately and Tiffany said the scene was devastating, noting, “There was nothing I could do. I wanted to go out there and jump on the back of the bear and save my dog.”

Unfortunately, Pickles didn’t survive the attack, as he was taken to an animal hospital and had surgery but died from his injuries.

She relayed the story on Facebook, writing: “I open the door to let my dog out to use the bathroom this morning. A bear come hauling ass in my house my dog jumped in front of me to save my life. I was screaming for my kids to close the doors. I fell getting away from from the bear I have a sprained ankle my back is sore but I am okay. Please say a prayer for my dog… I just can’t believe this happened. Update he was a toy poodle who weighed 5 pounds. He did not make it he died saving my life.”

Tiffany and her family have felt Pickles’ loss immensely, as she stated in a Facebook post: “He was always with me. If I stayed up late, he stayed up late. If I wanted to go somewhere, he wanted to go somewhere.”

She continued: “I just don’t even know what to do with myself. No one trying to take food out of my hand. No one waiting on me to walk through the door. My little Pickles was always at my side.”

Tiffany added: “He never left my side. This is so hard. The thing I liked most about Pickles was how he would put us to bed. And if someone was here, he would just lay next to us.”

She also explained that the experience was almost unbelievable, writing: “After what happened to me this morning, who would ever thought that’d happen? Not me.”

Among the many comments left on the Daily Mail’s coverage of the story were those who praised the dog, with notes such as: “Good boy Pickles, good boy.”

Another commenter noted: “Pickles you’ve stood your ground with a heart so large. You saved those you loved and whom loved you too. Know you will never be forgotten and will always represent what it means to be called a family member, RIP hero, friend, and protector!”
