This Boy Had Disappeared For Two Years.

Divorce and custody battles can bring out the absolute worst in people.  Sometimes parents have such animosity and hate for one another that they simply lose sight of what actually matters, which is what is best for their children.  While we’ve all heard of messy divorces and spiteful ex’s, the story of six year old Richard “Ricky” Chekevdia is one of the more extreme tales to ever arise from a bad breakup.

It all started when Shannon Wilfong and Michael Chekevdia found out they were pregnant back in 2002.  They were excited and happy but had been fighting a lot and the relationship was strained. After their son Ricky was born they decided to break up and share custody of him.  

At first things seemed to be going well but that didn’t last long and soon Shannon had reneged on their custody agreement which led to Michael taking her to court for visitation rights.  She never showed up on the day she was supposed to appear and so the judge gave Michael temporary custody. Yet soon after that both Shannon and Ricky just vanished, and no one seemed to know where they had gone.

It soon became apparent that Shannon had run away with their child and a warrant was issued for her arrest.  Things only got worse for Michael when Shannon’s mother, Diane Dobbs, accused him of abusing Ricky and plastered her yard with posters claiming he was a liar and abuser.  Her extreme behavior made Michael suspicious and he suspected that she was somehow in touch with her daughter. The cops ended up searching Diane’s house but found nothing and Michael kept looking for his son.

Two years had passed since his son went missing when an anonymous tip led to the police searching Diane’s house yet again.  They combed through the rooms carefully when they came upon a wood dresser that was pushed up against the wall. They moved it aside and found themselves looking down at a dark hole that led to a small twelve feet long, five feet wide, and four foot tall room.  Down there in the dark room they found Shannon hiding with Ricky, he’d finally been found at last!

It turned out that Diane had hidden her daughter and grandson away for the last 2 years and Michael had been right about his suspicions the whole time.  Despite his ordeal, Ricky seemed to be in good health and was placed with family members while state welfare workers investigated the abuse claims against Michael.  In the meantime, Ricky was just happy to be outside and free again. The cops who found him said that when they let him out of the car, he ran around like he’d never seen outdoors before, it was a bittersweet sight.  

Both Shannon and her mother were arrested, Shannon was charged with felony child abduction, Diane was charged with aiding her.  When freed on bail, Diane tried to make it sound like Ricky had enjoyed his time at her house and wasn’t hidden away inside. However, neighbors refuted this and said they never saw the boy outside, plus he showed signs of isolation.

In 2011 the sad saga finally came to an end.  Shannon pled guilty and got off light with just 2 years probation and a $1500 fine.  Michael finally got full custody of Ricky and looked forward to being the best dad he could be and giving his son the normal life he deserves.

Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and watch the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few weeks and months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove. The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

These are just really helpful.

This Kid Calls 911 and Has The Funniest Conversation With Confused 911 Operator.

image via : youtube.com

Kids truly do say the darnedest things and if you have a child you can personally attest to this. Children are like sponges that just pretty much absorb anything and everything in their environment. Their little brains and minds are constantly making new neural connections which help them navigate through a very large and confusing world. Sometimes this curiosity and innocence can get them into some pretty sticky situations that while funny can get them into a bit of trouble.

Children are taught to call 911 in case of emergencies from an early age. They learn that the best way to get immediate help in the face of danger or an urgent crisis is by dialing those three numbers. However, what a young child considers an emergency can often be at odds with what is an actual one requiring police or medical assistance. There are many stories of kids who call 911 for problems that fall well short of a life-threatening situation, you may even have one yourself.

While oftentimes they get scolded by the operator for mis-using the line, sometimes the person on the other end is understanding and happy to help them out. That was the case when a four year old boy named Johnny decided to call 911 for help with his math homework.

He was struggling with take aways, aka subtraction, and in his mind this was a homework emergency that could be solved by talking to the police! Realizing his innocence, instead of reprimanding him the dispatcher decided to talk to Johnny and walk him through some of his homework.

Their adorable conversation is suddenly interrupted when Johnny’s mother asks him who he is talking to. He innocently tells her the policeman is helping him with his math problems and that she told him “if I need help to call somebody.”

Naturally his mom is less than pleased with what’s going on and she can be heard in the background exclaiming “I didn’t mean the police.” That’s where the audio clip ends so while we can’t be sure as to what happened next, it’s safe to assume Johnny’s mom laid down the law and told him not to call the police ever again for math or any kind of homework help!

Remove stubborn old bumper stickers cleanly and completely with WD-40. Simply spray the sticker with WD-40 and let it sit for a while, the sticker will absorb it, then you can peel it right off.

Remove pet fur from carpets and seats with a spray bottle, water, and a squeegee. Spray the water on the seat and then move the squeegee over the area, it will gather and lift up the hair so you can easily pick it up.

Clean air vents with small foam brushes. They can easily fit in even the smallest vents and pick up all the dirt and dust inside them.

Use coffee filters to dust your car dashboard. Unlike cloth towels and paper towels, coffee filters won’t leave behind lint or just push dust around. Instead they work great at picking up dust and you can toss a few in the glove compartment for whenever you might need one to freshen up the dash.

Get streak free windows by cleaning them with newspaper. It’s the cloths and paper towels that leave streaks when you clean your windows so don’t even bother using them. Instead, spray down the window with cleaner and wipe it off with a piece of newspaper as you normally would.

Get rid of stubborn, lingering odors by sprinkling baking soda on car seats and carpets. Let it sit for a couple of hours before vacuuming it up. The baking soda should absorb the foul odors, leaving your car smelling fresh and clean.

A Shady Woman Is At a Mcdonald’s Drive-Thru Then An Employee Spots Kids Scared and Screaming The Car.

Many people all over the world go to McDonalds every day. Whether they are just trying to squeeze in a quick lunch in between appointments at work or their kids are just dying to get a happy meal. Many people don’t realize that working at a fast food joint as an employee is not an easy gig. Whether you are dealing with rude and angry customers, a line out the door, or getting burned by some scolding hot oil in the fryer! I have a lot of respect and tip my hat to all the hard working people at McDonalds and any other fast food restaurant. Working in any job with customer service is never a walk in the park!

Now on the flip side, from the customers perspective, when you think about going to McDonalds it really never occurs to you that something seriously tragic or horrible could potentially happen. Maybe they run out of 20 piece nuggets?

Maybe the fries aren’t crispy enough? Or maybe, worst case scenario they put pickles on your burger when you asked for no pickles! LOL! All kidding aside, sometimes things you could never imagine happening in your wildest dreams actually do occur..

This brings us to today’s story which features 22-year old Pedro Veloria, A hard working, driven and all around good guy from Miami, Florida. Pedro came from a low income family raised by his single mom who had to work 2-3 jobs just to makes ends meet.

When he was growing up he always took odd jobs like mowing lawns, painting fences or baby sitting to help relieve his mom of some of the financial burden. Pedro always got good grades in school and hoped to one day go to college, but his mother couldn’t afford to send him and he wasn’t eligible for any scholarships.

One night, Pedro and his family went out to go bowling which was their favorite family activity. On the way home they stopped at McDonalds and saw that they were hiring employees and the pay was above minimum wage. Pedro decided he would apply for the job and a couple days later he got it! This would be Pedro’s first real job and he could really start help his hard-working mother out with the bills.

He went through intensive training, learned the ins and outs of every aspect of the job and quickly fell into a daily routine. He would start work at the crack of dawn at 5am, work all day then go home help out with the kids, pass out then wake up the next morning and do it all over again.

Although he was exhausted and working extremely hard, he always kept a positive attitude and would make sure no matter how small or insignificant his specific task was he did it with perfect precision!

One day Pedro was working the drive-thru. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary and he was going about his shift like he always did. With a big smile, courteous, helpful and making sure everybody always got exactly what they ordered. That’s when something unimaginable began to unfold in the drive-thru line.

Pedro could hear kids crying in one of the cars. This wasn’t particularly strange because children screaming and crying in the back of their parents car at the drive-thru is something that happens on a daily basis. However, there was something different about the distinct sound of these particular kid’s screams!

It wasn’t the sound of some bratty kids whining, it sounded more like screams of pure terror and fear! The driver of the car was a woman and her head was down, she was hunched over the wheel and looked to be completely unconscious. Even worse the car was not stopped and was moving forward in the drive-thru line!

Pedro’s instincts immediately kicked in and he jumped through the drive-thru window like an olympic pole vaulter. He sprinted as fast as his legs would move, got to the car with the unresponsive lady, her scared kids and somehow got the vehicle to stop moving!

At this point the woman was still unconscious. Pedro quickly called for help and luckily there were two firefighters who were grabbing a bite at the McDonalds. They jumped from their table, ran to the car and began CPR to try and revive the unconscious mom.

The paramedics came next and the woman was brought to the hospital. Luckily because of Pedro’s quick thinking, rapid response time and just being an all around Good Samaritan and local hero nobody was hurt. The lady happened to be an off-duty cop and was still unconscious when she got to the hospital, but thankfully she made a full recovery!

Pedro had saved a police officer and her children’s life. He decided that it was time for his life to switch gears from McDonalds employee to becoming a paramedic so he could save people in need everyday of his life! What could’ve been a tragedy ended up being a wonderful happy ending thanks to Pedro!

Lady Is Stunned After She Swings Open Her Door and Sees Her 5-Year-Old Neighbor As He Clutches His Baby Sister In Fear!

image via – youtube.com

When most people hear a knock at their door at night, and they’re not expecting anyone, they ignore it and hope whoever it is goes away.  Many don’t even bother opening the door for obvious reasons, it can be very dangerous and lead to terrible things.  

When Jessica Penoyer heard a knock on her door after dark, she initially thought to ignore it, but something told her to check and see who it was.  When she looked out the window, she saw her 5 year old neighbor Salvador Cicalese, who everyone calls Sal, clutching his 2 month old sister in his arms.  It was late and she was surprised to see the children out by themselves, so she immediately opened the door to see what the matter was.  

At first Jessica thought she heard Sal tell her that his dog died, but when she repeated what she’d initially heard back to him he said “no, my mom died in the shower, can you take care of us?”  Shocked, Jessica called 911 and ran over to the neighbor’s house to check on Sal’s mother, Kaitlyn Cicalese. She found her in the bathtub unconscious with the water still running. The tub had been filling up and if Jessica hadn’t arrived when she did, Kaitlyn could have drowned.  

It turned out that Kaitlyn had suffered a seizure in the shower after she had put her children to sleep.  All she remembers is turning the water on and then waking up in the hospital, it’s the second time she has had a seizure since she gave birth to her infant daughter.  When she fell, Sal had been in his room when he heard the loud thud and went to see what happened. That’s when he found his mother lying in the tub unconscious with blood coming from a wound in her head.  

Thinking she was dead, Sal tried his best to stay calm and get help.  He went and got his 2 month old sister and wrapped her snugly in a blanket before placing her on the couch.  He couldn’t get the front door unlocked so he headed to the garage. Since he was too short to reach the garage door opener, he had to use a stool and on his first attempt he fell over.  Thankfully he landed on a pile of shoes so he didn’t get hurt, and on his second try the door opened. He went back and got his little sister then headed over to Jessica’s house, and the rest is history.

After hearing what he did, Sal’s mother believes that he saved her life that day.  She could have drowned or bled out from her head wound if he hadn’t gotten help right away.  In the end, Sal was awarded for his heroism by the local San Tan Valley, Arizona fire department.  They gave him an honorary certificate, patch, shirt and helmet in recognition for what he did. He also got a nickname from the firefighters, “Super Sal” which is more than fitting.

9-Year-Old With Terminal Cancer Tells His Father ‘I Gotta Quit’. But Then Makes Him a Promise That Left Him In Tears!

image via – youtube.com

Once you become a parent it quickly dawns on you that your life is no longer the most important thing to you but your child’s life now takes precedence over your own. Seeing your young kid sick is one of the hardest things for a parent to deal with especially when there is nothing you can do to make them better.

You will make any sacrifice you possibly can for your child and will do everything in your power to try and get them better, no matter what the cost. In a worse case scenario situation they can be able to survive their illness! Until you face this reality as a parent it is truly hard to grasp how sad, difficult, scary, and life altering this situation can be.

Even if your child isn’t sick having that initial conversation about death is one of the hardest thing a parent will ever have to do. How can you explain death to a kid when as an adult it’s almost impossible to grasp the idea of it yourself. Even worse what happens when you have to have this conversation with your son and it’s not a theoretical conversation, but a talk about his imminent death.

This brings us to today’s heart breaking story. Bill Kohler father of Aiden Kohler, was diagnosed with a very rare form of childhood cancer called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma or DIPG. This is a very dangerous form of cancer that forms a large mass or tumor in the middle of the brainstem. This form of cancer is almost impossible to treat because it grows around the nerves in the brain.

If these nerves are operated on the patient will almost certainly die. People diagnosed with this type of cancer usually can only live for at most 12 months after it is found. This form of cancer is so rare that only 300 humans are diagnosed each year and they are usually between the ages of 5-9 years old.

In Aiden’s particular case his diagnosis was even worse because they didn’t just find one tumor they found two! Even with the devastating news about his son, Bill a veteran and former army medic tried just about anything and everything he could to save his son’s life.

He tried to get him into multiple experimental trials that weren’t fully cleared yet in a last ditch effort to save the young boy. Unfortunatley Aiden didn’t meet the requirements for these test trials and was rejected over and over again. When Bill finally had to come to terms with the fact that there was absolutely nothing he could do, he made his boy a promise that he would make his final days on earth as fulfilling and special as he possibly could.

Aiden got to meet his favorite wrestlers, celebrity chefs, go hunting in the woods and play with his favorite soccer team. Then came his tenth and final birthday where his parents tried their best and gave him an amazing final birthday. Time was quickly running out as the sand in the hour glass was almost empty, Aiden’s short life was coming to an end.

All his bodily functions were shutting down. He couldn’t swallow, breathe, walk and talking was becoming more and more difficult. He knew he was going to die soon and he looked up at his father and told him ‘Dad I gotta quit’. Bill the former army medic looked at his son with tears streaming down his eyes and told him, ‘if you fought as hard as you possibly could and you just can’t go on it’s okay to quit son’.

Aiden said to his dad after he’s gone he wants to be remembered as a fighter, filled with happiness, funny, a good athlete, smart, wise beyond his years and selfless. He also wanted to people to celebrate his life by dancing and singing and not be sad that he is now gone from this earth.

Aiden died soon after but his family, friends and community will never forget this special boy who will forever remain in their memories. To this day donations are still being given to John Hopkins in Aiden’s name to try and find a cure for DIPG.
