Loving Husband Plants Thousands of Flowers for His Blind Wife to Smell

Mr. and Mrs. Kuroki live in a rural part of Japan with their two children. Since both enjoy the outdoors, they decided to move into a dairy farm after they got married.

All was well for the family until Mrs. Kuroki developed diabetes.

Because of her diabetes, Mrs. Kuroki went blind. For someone who love the outdoors, becoming blind is a huge hurdle because getting out of the house at will was something she could not do anything.

This caused Mrs. Kuroki to become depressed. Withdrawing from her family, she retreated in the comforts of her own home, secluding herself from her husband and children.

Sad that this would happen to his beloved wife, Mr. Kuroki decided he should do something to cheer her up. Thus, he started planting a small garden of flowers for her to enjoy. Even if she could not see the flowers with her own eyes, she could still ‘see’ them through their scent!

Although the experience was different, being able to smell the flowers snapped Mrs. Kuroki out of her depression. She was soon going out from their house and enjoying the outdoors again.

Realizing that he had found the best way to please his wife and show her that he truly loves her, Mr. Kuroki spent the next two years planting more flowers around their home and throughout their dairy farm. Soon, the place was filled with pink blooms which captured the attention of the other villagers.

What started as a small labor of love for his beloved wife would soon become a tourist attraction, with hundreds of people coming over to visit the lovely flower gardens planted by the man who loved his wife more than anything else in the world…

Planting a Flower Garden

A flower garden “is any garden where flowers are grown for decorative purposes”, according to Wikipedia. While Mr. Kuroki’s garden grew only one variety of flower, most flower gardens grow several different species of flowers, shrubs, and trees.

The final effect of the flower garden is beautiful, especially if all plants are in bloom but the labor that comes before you enjoy the full garden is also quite back-breaking. There are a lot of things to do in the flower garden to ensure that the plants are well-taken care of.

Often, the gardener not only has to deal with planting and watering the plants, other concerns such as mulching, weeding, replanting of new plants, and designing the overall effect of the flower garden.

Are you a new mom who struggles with putting your baby to sleep? Or a dad who can’t figure it out either? If you’re someone who finds it hard to cradle a baby to sleep, here’s a guide for you made by genius mom from Three Day Nanny.

According to moms Gina Ford and Kathryn Mewes, crying babies can be left crying until they stop. This helps them understand that they can’t be picked up at all times. They will eventually lay low with their crying games.

Another tip that has for other moms is to avoid eye-to-eye with their kids if they are trying to get them to sleep. Although many questioned this trick, a lot has agreed.

Emily-Jane Clark, another mom, and a writer share her own advice on how she gets her kids to sleep.

1. Get in your comfortable clothes are prepare for bed

Because getting a kid to fall asleep could get you drowsy, too. It is advisable that you prepare for bed together with your kids so both of you can rest well.

2. Plan out your nightly routine

Full-Time moms don’t usually get things planned out very well because they know for sure 90% of them won’t get accomplished. However, if you want a more convenient way of putting your kid to sleep, it is helpful to organize your own schedule and activities while lying in bed.

3. Deep sleep

Before moving an inch, make sure that the baby is in deep sleep and not half awake. This way, you won’t wake him/her up when you transfer.

4. Drink coffee– lots of it

If the child will only sleep on you or with you, prepare cups of coffee! If your kid is a newborn, you want to stay awake while cradling the child because if you end up sleeping, the baby might end up on the floor. Keep your eyes on him/her.

5. Eye contact

Contrary to the tip by Ford, Clark says keeping an eye-to-eye contact is important. Their look will give you an extra boost of energy during groggy midnight routines.

Traveler Gets Arrested for Wearing Too Many Clothes, Gets Refused on Plane Twice

One traveler who tried to cheat the airline by wearing many layers of clothing to allegedly keep him from paying excess baggage charges was refused boarding by an airline. He was arrested, then, refused boarding by the next flight he booked the following day! Ouch.

Ryan Carney Williams, who uses the handle Ryan Hawaii on Twitter, took to social media to express his disappointment after British Airways refused to let him board the plane after he put on the clothes that wouldn’t fit within his check-in baggage in a flight from Iceland to England.

Cops were soon called to arrest Williams after he put on eight pairs of pants and ten shirts. He accused the airline of racial profiling, saying he had done nothing wrong except put on the clothes that were in excess of his baggage allowance. He further claims he wasn’t trying to cheat the airline but just couldn’t afford to pay for the excess.

He also claimed he had been polite throughout the incident but the airline’s ground crew had called the cops on him for ‘unruly behavior’.

According to Williams, the cops arrested him at Iceland Keflavík International Airport, sprayed him with mace, and held him on the ground despite him staying polite and just refusing to leave the counter – but why would he leave the counter, anyway, when he was actually trying to get into the flight?

He was brought to the police station where he formally gave his report. The plane flew without him.

After missing the flight over the incident, Williams booked one with EasyJet the following day but though he was able to go through check-in and security without problems this time, he was refused boarding at the flight gate – again!

He was told that he was not allowed on board because of the previous day’s incident with British Airways. Ironically, though, his luggage was able to fly ahead as it had already been checked in at that flight.

It angered Williams to be stuck in Iceland with no money – and no more luggage! He took to Twitter to express his frustration. Fortunately, while reactions varied from netizens, he did receive a refund from both airlines.

He was later able to finally fly to England on a Norwegian airline. Whew.

Lee was once an employee at a restaurant who only earned TW$30,000 (approx. US $1017) per month. But one day, he decided to switch career and become a full-time housekeeper, and guess what, it turned out to be the best decision he ever made in his life!

“Many families in Taiwan have dual incomes. Since both the husband and wife need to head out to work, they have no time to take care of their home. This is where housekeepers like us come in to help sort things out,” 

Aside from his main job which includes cleaning the house and other normal chores for a housekeeper, Lee was required to clean the client’s tortoise. Easy, right? Well, read on.

You may think cleaning tortoise is an easy task but it’s not. Cleaning the client’s tortoise require skills and should be done with extra care.

Lee would first brush the tortoise’s’ shell and repeat the process on its belly. He then would try to remove any possible dirt from the shell. For that, he earned TW$80,000. Just be careful not to hurt the tortoise and scratch its valuable shell if you want to keep the job.

Same as to the most of us, Lee works ten hours a day, only he’s paid double or triple our salary for being a housekeeper.

Boy, doesn’t it make you want to switch jobs?
