‘He’s always chasing the pot of gold, but when he gets there, at the end of the day, it’s just corn flakes.’
This line from the movie ‘Click’ says so much about people who don’t want to settle for less, those who want more–wealth, fame, a fancy car and a big house. It’s a different thing for pro-snowboarder Mike Basich. After living in abundance, he finds solace in simple things like his dream home which is a tiny mountain cabin.
Inspired by these tiny houses all over the world, many people started living off the grid just like Mike. His life and craft has been outdoors being a professional snowboarder so he thought of building his very own sanctuary in the mountains. Named Area-241, his personal cabin is situated in the Sierra Nevada mountains and roughly 10 minutes outside Truckee, California. The pentagon- shaped and 228-square-feet tiny house gets its electricity through solar panels and water from snowmelt.
Mike is fond of making or building things with his own hands, a ‘self-doer’ as he describes himself and this house is his DIY project. It is built of 80% granite, pine and Douglas fir. A makeshift oven, tiny kitchen and a sleeping loft are some of the few things inside the cabin. He doesn’t have the usual shower but a unique one outside with a wood-fired hot tub. That’s not it though, he also put a chairlift with a 600-foot vertical rise.
When asked what he learned in the process of building Area-241, he said, ‘How much I love the snow, and how simple life can be with so much joy.’

Poor Cat Finally Freed After Being Trapped in a Wall for FIVE Years.
For the love of animals. Pass it on.
This is exactly what happened to a cat named Biso, which managed to squeeze itself into a hole in the wall in a metro station in Cairo, Egypt. It was completely trapped since there was no way to get out of there.
It would have died all alone in the dark if it weren’t for an old man named Uncle Abdo,who gave the poor cat food and water through a small gap in the wall. He used to own a small shop right outside the train station and was already looking out for Biso back when he was still a stray kitten.
This Dog’s Sixth Sense Helped Detect His Master’s Condition.
Dogs are simply amazing.
Dogs have some kind of a sixth sense, don't they? They can see, hear, smell, and know things before any human can. I guess this is one of the endearing qualities our furry friends possess because this way, they can protect us and save us from danger.
That was the case of Max, a 9-year old red Collie cross and his owner Maureen Burns last 2008. Max has always been full of energy and enthusiasm, so Maureen got concerned when the feisty creature became sad and started behaving strangely. She thought that maybe, since Max is already nine and a half years old, the pup may be fading away. Maureen thought that she had to prepare herself for the inevitable.
However, something about Max's behavior made Maureen think that something else was wrong. Max had been coming up to her to touch her breast with his nose, then he would move away with a very sad look in his eyes. Maureen had a lump on her breast before but did not mind it then because all her latest scans and mammogram were negative. It was not until one day, when Maureen was staring at herself in the mirror and saw how Max looked at her reflection, did she realize that maybe it was cancer. She went to a doctor and had a biopsy exam performed. Eventually, she had the cancer removed. Surprisingly, Max went back to his usual self immediately after Maureen was discharged from the hospital....
This Baby Learns the Baby Sign Language at 3 Months Old! Whoa…
This smart and adorable baby will definitely capture your heart!
Babies are undeniably adorable. They have these cute antics that are sure to make you fall for their charms immediately. Their cooing, smiling, and giggling just make them more lovable.
However, not very often do we encounter babies with advanced skills. Of course, I'm not talking about weird skills like acrobatics or walking on a thin wire. I'm talking about baby skills, like baby sign language.
Baby sign language involves teaching babies to use signs when they want to communicate something simple like "eat" or "sleep." For example, a mother can teach her baby the sign for language milk, mom, up, or down. Babies typically learn the sign language when they reach six months old. But that's not the case for Malynn, a three-month-old baby....
