In 1945, some kids in Bunol, Spain, decided to have a food fight. Now, 70 years later, the fight is still going on! And the grownups have joined in the fun!
More than 20,000 people met in the streets on Wednesday. They threw 175 tons of tomatoes at each other. This huge fight happens every year. It is called the “Tomatina Fiesta.”
Last year the Netherlands had a tomato fight too. It was a protest. But this tomato fight is all fun—and tomato slime.
A glad heart makes a cheerful face. – Proverbs 15:13
Ann and Ken Fredericks have been eating the same cake . . . for 60 years!
The couple celebrated their anniversary this month. They got married in New York in 1955. According to tradition, they ate a piece of their frozen wedding cake top on their first anniversary. But they didn’t stop there. They keep the fruit cake, made by Ann’s grandmother, in a coffee can in the freezer. Every year they take a few more bites.
The Fredericks are in their eighties now. Their children think it’s gross that they’re still eating the ancient cake. But, says Ann, it’s actually quite tasty!
Rejoice in the wife of your youth. – Proverbs 5:18
This tree grows plums . . . and peaches . . . and nectarines . . . and cherries, all at once!
The tree is the project of art teacher Sam Van Aken. It stands at Syracuse University in New York. People walk by it every day without even noticing how many kinds of fruit it carries.
Mr. Van Aken makes trees grow many kinds of fruit by grafting foreign branches into a single tree. At first, he wanted to grow 100 kinds of fruit per tree. But 40 has turned out to be quite enough!
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace . . . – Galatians 5:22
This message in a bottle has finally arrived. It took over 100 years!
In April, Marianne Winkler and her husband found the bottle. It washed up onto a German island called Amrum. Someone threw it into the North Sea sometime between 1904 and 1906. Mrs. Winkler just made the news public. It might be the oldest message in a bottle ever found!
Back then, researchers hoped the bottle would help them answer a question. How do sea currents move? The message was a postcard. It asked the finders to send it to the Marine Biological Association of the U.K. It promised a shilling (old British money) if they did.
Now the Winklers are one shilling richer.
