The first thing Zachary Sutterfield noticed when he awoke before daybreak in his friends’ apartment was the uncomfortable heat. Vivid colors danced outside the living room window. Orange and blue hues flickered, casting shadows inside. The 20-year-old college student sprang from the couch where he’d been sleeping. He ran to the two bedrooms where his friends, Haley Michele Frizzell and David Angel Ortiz, were asleep. He remembers banging on their doors to wake them. They yanked open the front door of their second-floor apartment and dashed out to an outdoor walkway. “We were surrounded by fire,” Sutterfield said. Frizzell ran one way; Ortiz ran the other. Sutterfield, wearing only pajama pants, was caught in the flames.

Did i shave my legs for this
BARRON, Wis. — A 21-year-old man killed a western Wisconsin couple in a baffling scheme to kidnap their teenage daughter, then held the girl captive for three months before she narrowly managed to escape and reach safety as he drove around looking for her, authorities said. Jayme Closs, 13, was skinny, disheveled and wearing shoes too big for her when she approached a stranger and pleaded for help Thursday in the small, isolated north woods town of Gordon, where police said she was being held by Jake Thomas Patterson. Within minutes, Patterson was pulled over and jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges for what authorities said was his meticulously planned shotgun attack at the girl’s home in October. The news that Jayme was safe set off joy and relief 60 miles away in her hometown of Barron, population 3,300, ending an all-out search that gripped the state, with many people fearing the worst the longer she was missing. “My legs started to shake. It was awesome. The … [Read more...] about Jayme Closs is home. But how did she come to alleged captor’s attention?
JOHN Barrowman shaved his entire body - including his "butt crack" - to avoid being bitten by insects on I'm A Celebrity. The 51-year-old star revealed he is smooth as an eel down under and made sure creepy crawlies had no place to hide - by having all hair from the neck down removed. The Doctor Who actor told The Mirror: "I shaved all my man bits, my legs, my arm pits, my chest hair and my butt crack and so there is no chance of the critters getting caught in my man-hair." John was first to jump in the jungle lake with jungle siren Emily Atack, and admitted he feels liberated about his body now he's reached his fifties. He added: "I haven't got any qualms about stripping off at all. I'm now 51 and my body has changed a little bit and I'm still proud of who I am and what I look like.

Susan Selasky Detroit Free Press Published 12:40 PM EST Nov 19, 2018 This Thanksgiving will be Jennifer Stewart’s third year following a ketogenic (keto for short) diet. And just as in previous years, she has a plan. For starters, she'll prepare a dish to pass that she can eat. At her first Thanksgiving after starting keto, Stewart made sure she ate a high-fat meal before going to her boyfriend’s “big Italian” Thanksgiving dinner. Doing so helped her avoid the many carbs that make up a traditional Thanksgiving meal. If you’re unfamiliar with a keto diet, here's the quick explanation: It’s extremely low in carbohydrates and high in fat. Meat, including turkey with skin, is fine to consume, but other Thanksgiving staples aren't. Mashed potatoes are off limits, along with bread stuffing, rolls, sugary cranberry sauce and desserts. According to the Calorie Control Council, the typical Thanksgiving meal … [Read more...] about Keto-friendly Thanksgiving: Planning your diet for holidays
