48 Things For Your Patio That’ll Totally Make Your Neighbors Envious

It holds up to 450 pounds. Plus, the stand is easy to assemble, disassemble, and pack up in the included carrying case for storage or travel.

Long, but worthwhile promising review: “Features to love: The cotton fabric is sturdy and breathable. I never feel stuck to it the way I do in a nylon hammock. The setup/take down is super easy, and the frame is very sturdy — we have definitely put 300-plus pounds in it. 

The ability to raise and lower the hammock with the multiple hook positions might be the best feature. I have bad knees and like to get into the hammock from a higher position…no problem. My kids like it lower so they can reach the ground to swing it…no problem. 

It works great as a traditional hammock to lie in. It works as a ‘swing’ to sit on. It has enough fabric that you can cover up if you’re cold or want to block out light or bugs. 

We have accidentally left it out in the rain several times, and it dries great, hasn’t faded from the sun, hasn’t had any mold, and hasn’t developed any weird smell.

Things not to love: Nothing! This is a great hammock. It may not be as portable as those little nylon hammocks, but if this is for your yard and not for camping, this is hard to beat.” —Mary

Aussies Are Explaining The Differences Between Bogans And Rednecks To Americans And It’s Fascinating

“Watch Kath & Kim for an excellent example of bogans. Bogans aren’t necessarily trailer park living, wildlife hunting yokels.”

—u/DefNotQualified

“Kath and Kim are great examples of Australian bogans. I would think a TV show that shows American bogans would be Malcolm In The Middle, that middle-class suburban family that is a little rough around the edges.” 

—u/ErinJean85

“Holy fuck, that’s actually very on point. I’d like to submit the Simpsons as contenders for American boganhood.”

Jennifer Hudson threw out one of rarest first pitches in baseball

Published

on

Call her an actor-singer-pitcher.

Once again proving there’s not much she can’t do, Jennifer Hudson added a perfect first pitch ahead of the Kansas City Royals game on Tuesday to a résumé that already includes an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award.

Hudson lobbed up what the Major League Baseball Twitter account called “the best eephus pitch” they’ve seen this season ahead of the Royals’ home game against the Chicago White Sox.

An eephus pitch is a super slow, high-arcing pitch that is meant to throw off a batter’s timing and is rarely seen in a big-league game. Hudson lollipopped her pitch right over the plate as the Royals mascot, Sluggerrr, called it a strike while posing as the umpire.

Hudson, 40, celebrated by pointing to the crowd and doing a little shimmy on the mound. She also did it in style in a Royals jersey and denim jumpsuit.

Celebrities throwing out the first pitch need to bring their A-game these days, as Hudson’s strike follows a memorable first pitch by Olympic gold medalist Suni Lee before a Minnesota Twins game last week.

The star gymnast flipped head over heels before throwing her pitch, putting her up in the first pitch pantheon with Team USA teammate Simone Biles, who did a twisting backflip in 2019 before a first pitch at a Houston Astros game.

Tom Hanks also had a first pitch to remember in April when he reunited with Wilson from “Cast Away” before a Cleveland Guardians game.

Olivia Newton-John’s Husband John Easterling Remembers Her as ‘Most Courageous Woman’ in Heartfelt Tribute

Published

on

Olivia Newton-John’s husband, John Easterling, is sharing a heartfelt tribute to his late wife, just two days after her passing. She was 73 years old.

Easterling took to Newton-John’s Instagram account, where he posted a photo of the pair along with a touching message addressed to the singer-actress.

“Olivia, Our love for each other transcends our understanding. Every day we expressed our gratitude for this love that could be so deep, so real, so natural. We never had to ‘work’ on it. We were in awe of this great mystery and accepted the experience of our love as past, present and forever,” Easterling began.

Easterling, who married Newton-John back in 2008, called the Grease star “the most courageous woman” he’s ever known, adding that she genuinely cared for all the world’s people, nature and its creatures.

“At Olivia’s deepest essence she was a healer using her mediums of song, of words, of touch. She was the most courageous woman I’ve ever known. Her bandwidth for genuinely caring for people, for nature and all creatures almost eclipses what is humanely possible,” he added. “It is only the grace of God that has allowed me to share the depth and passion of her being for so long. In her most difficult times she always had the spirit, the humor, and the will power to move things into the light.”

Though still in the midst of her painful loss, Easterling said that his heart is “healed” by the joy of her love.

“Even now as her soul soars, the pain and holes in my heart are healed with the joy of her love and the light that shines forward,” Easterling wrote before concluding the message by thanking Newton-John’s fans, friends and colleagues for their love and support. “Our family deeply appreciates the vast ocean of love and support that has come our way. Onward Ho, John Easterling.”

Easterling broke the news of his wife’s passing Monday morning in an announcement shared to Instagram, writing alongside a photo of the actress, “Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends.”

“Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer,” the statement continued. “Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the @onjfoundation.”

Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, also shared a tribute to her late mother. In addition to several shots of her and her mom, Lattanzi posted a special behind-the-scenes video from their iconic 2021 duet. Lattanzi took to Instagram Tuesday to share a clip of the pair singing “Window in the Wall,” a song that brought the late actress out of retirement and back in the studio.

The video sees the mother-daughter duo recording the track, sharing special moments in the studio and collaborating on the moving melody.

“You are my lighthouse mama. My safe place. My heart space. It has been my honor and continues to be my honor to be your baby and best friend,” Lattanzi wrote alongside the video. “You are an angel on earth and everyone touched by you has been blessed. I love you forever my life giver, my teacher, my mama.”

Newton-John’s long-term battle with cancer began in 1992 when she went public with her first diagnosis of breast cancer. She went on to fund the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre in Melbourne, Australia, and had been a fierce advocate for cancer treatment and research. A state funeral in Newton-John’s home country of Australia is set to take place to celebrate Newton-John’s “music and film and all the other amazing contributions that she made” to the world.
