eagle swims its prey to shore


This video was shot at the Mallard Lakes subdivision in Baton Rouge.
A nutria (a large semiaquatic beaver-like rodent) was floating dead in the water.
It is amazing to see what this eagle did to bring in his dinner.

this little old lady is still chugging along


This amazing 101-year-old lady drivies an 81-year-old car and changes the oil and spark plugs herself!  Notice at the very end when she steps on a little red towel to get into the car so she won't dirty the running board, then picks it up and puts it in the car so she can use it when she gets out!
