Picture of the Day 😁

This is just unbelievable....
Walter Hudson (June 5, 1944 – December 24, 1991) of Hempstead, New York, is the holder of the Guinness World Record for the largest waist. It measured 109 inches in 1987 when he was at his peak weight of 1,197 pounds. 
Hudson described his average daily diet as consisting of two boxes of sausages, 1 pound  of bacon, 12 eggs, a loaf of bread, four hamburgers and four double cheeseburgers, five large portions of fries, three ham steaks or two chickens, four baked potatoes, four sweet potatoes, most of a large cake, and additional snacks. He also drank an average of 7 liters of soda every day.

Walter Hudson died of a heart attack on December 24, 1991, at age 47. At the time of his Death, he weighed 900 pounds. Emergency rescuers from the Hempstead Fire Department had to cut a 4-by-6-foot hole in the bedroom wall to remove his body from the premises.

From Mr. Food...

You're gonna want to bring your appetite and a loaf of crusty bread to the table when you serve this Old-World Peasant Soup. This soup is full of fresh veggies, beans, and, for old-world flavor, some kielbasa. It's a hearty, fill-ya-up soup that's sure to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

  • 1 carrot, peeled, cut in half, and thinly sliced
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped

  • 2 (15.8-ounce) cans cannellini beans, not drained
  • 1 pound kielbasa sausage, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups fresh spinach


  1. in a soup pot, heat oil over medium-high heat. Saute onion, carrot, and celery 6 to 8 minutes, or until tender.

2020 tax filing deadline is July 15 for 2019 tax returns due to the impact of Covid19.
April 15th of each year is National Tax Day. In the United States, the term “tax day” refers to the day on which individual income tax returns are due to the federal government. The day may also refer to April 15th for state tax returns.
The Federal income tax filing deadline is midnight on April 15th of every year, with extensions occurring when the 15th lands on a Saturday, Sunday, or a holiday. In those circumstances, the returns are due the first succeeding day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or a holiday. 
These dates can differ depending on the residence as well.  Some years, due to extenuating circumstances such as natural disasters, more significant extensions have been granted by the Federal Government.


Complete and file your taxes. Whether you prepare your taxes yourself or have a professional prepare them for you, only a couple of things are certain in life – death, and taxes. Or so Benjamin Franklin once said. 


Income tax was first collected in The United States in 1862 to fund the Civil War.  It was deemed unconstitutional due to not being apportioned with conformity across the states. The United States once again enacted income tax with the 16th Amendment in 1913. At that time, the filing deadline was March 1. In 1918 the deadline was changed to March 15, and then in 1955, for the most recent change, the filing deadline was moved to April 15th.  The day has come to be known as Tax Day.
