Her mind believed and her body achieved

You don’t want to mess with Tamara Walcott of Laurel, MD, suggests the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. She’s the new Guinness World Record holder for cumulative weightlifting, having won the title by lifting a combined total of 1,620.4 pounds in a squat, bench press and the deadlift competition in Manassas, VA sponsored by the World Raw Powerlifting Federation. Tamara lived up to her motto that says, “the impossible is possible.”




At long last

Raymond Turner lives Fort Worth, TX and works at the Cook Children’s Hospital there. Christina Sadberry also lives in Fort Worth and frequently takes her 4-year-old son to the very same hospital for medical treatments. The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] says that one day not so long ago Turner’s wife, Maria, got him one of those DNA kits that tells you about your genetic heritage. And, you guessed it, Ms. Sadberry was a match. So, Maria tracked her down on Facebook and they made a connection. Christina got a chance to see a photo of Mr. Turner and recalled seeing him at the hospital that very same day. The long-lost siblings had finally found each other.




How sweet it is

That sweet tooth of yours might land you a $78,000 [$100,000 Canadian dollars] a year job, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. The online company, Candy Funhouse, located in Ontario, Canada, is looking for a Chief Candy Officer whose principal task is to conduct taste tests. The company’s Chief Executive Officer, Jamal Hejazi, had this to say about the job: “Imagine your best memories around candy, and having that every day at work.”
