A Florida woman got some good news when she learned a dark spot on her lung was a seed that had been lodged there for almost
30 years!  Blanca Riveron was con­vinced she had lung can­cer. Back in 1984 Riveron had inhaled a seed from a fruit called nis­pero. Riveron said she could not believe the seed would still be there after all that time.  But she dis­cov­ered the truth while sit­ting in a
traf­fic jam when she had a bad cough­ing fit and the nis­pero seed came out. The seed also explains why she has suf­fered from a bad
cough for decades that doc­tors diag­nosed as asthma or pneumonia.Riveron’s breath­ing has improved remarkably.

While hunt­ing with his friend Brian Hansen before day­light Ter­rance Spaeth thought he saw a turkey, so he shot it and shot it again. It wasn’t until “he heard the screams and moans, he real­ized it wasn’t a turkey but his friend!” Spaeth, 67, drove Hansen to the hos­pi­tal; he is expected to recover, and no charges will be filed.

A pair of boozed-up Florid­i­ans didn’t want to risk putting their seven-year-old grand­daugh­ter in the car when they drove home.  Cops spot­ted the lit­tle girl, wear­ing a swim­suit, but no hel­met, rid­ing on a Big­wheel, which was tied to their SUV with a dog leash!  Paul, who was pilot­ing the big­ger vehi­cle at about 10 miles per hour, acknowl­edged that he’d been drink­ing — and that he did not have a valid license. Accord­ing to the police report, Belinda was also wasted, and admit­ted she knew the stunt was dan­ger­ous, but said they were “just hav­ing fun.” Paul and Belinda Berloni were charged with child endangerment.
