I have a confession to make…

I have, for years, had an on and off again affair. I just…I can’t help it.

Sacramento, California - What do you do with a pair of smelly old sneakers taking up space in your closet? Apparently, says the Association of Mature American Citizens, you should put them up for sale. That’s what Dave Russell of Sacramento, did and he managed to make a $50,000 profit.

Murfreesboro, Arkansas - Who needs a diamond mine? Just visit Arkansas' Crater of Diamonds State Park and, if you are lucky, there’ll be a diamond waiting for you in plain sight, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. 

Chicago, Illinois - Pothole ridden streets are dangerous and unsightly but a local artist in Chicago may have come up with a way to give commuters a smooth and esthetically soothing ride, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. Jim Bachor is an accomplished mosaic artist who came up with the idea of filling the potholes with unique works of art on a trip to Pompeii. He uses a technique that employs shards of marble and glass just as mosaic artists did 2,000 years ago. 

Dunn, North Carolina - She loves Amazon. He loves her. And, so, when her birthday came around Waylon McGuire of Dunn, NC he had a local bakery cook up a special birthday cake for his wife, Emily. It was an exact replica of a delivery from the online retailer, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens. 

Houston, Texas - Where were you when America made history in outer space with the launch of Apollo 11, the first U.S. space ship to reach the moon? If you are a parent or grandparent, you probably stayed close by the television set, and can remember why this historical event aroused an educational curiosity.
