When I tell people I’m from Maine, they ask, “Did you ride moose to school?”
While they’re (hopefully) joking, I always play along and laugh about our lack of running water, too.
The truth, though, is that I can’t remember a time I’ve actually seen a moose. I probably saw one from far off as a girl when my family and I spent summers camping and winters on the slopes…but I have no actual recollection.
But when it comes to this little girl’s encounter with a moose, I can’t imagine she’ll soon forget the meeting — this is simply too amazing to not remember!
How awesome is that? I would switch spots with her in a heartbeat!
If you want the chance to experience moose (and more!) up close, visit Parc Omega on your next trip to Ottawa or Montreal.

When I was a Girl Scout, they didn’t teach us how to build a campfire. Back then, I thought it was pretty normal, but now, I can’t help but wonder why we didn’t get to learn the useful survival skill while our male counterparts did.
Regardless, to this day, I am a bit intimidated when asked to gather tinder and kindling for a campfire.
What’s the difference? How much do I need? And don’t even get me started on how you go about assembling all that stuff…
Thankfully, sites like ScoutmasterCG exist to help people like me out!
Here’s everything you need to know to get a fire going from scratch in the woods.
If you’re more into videos, though, this tutorial should help you out!
Soon, this will be me (except, y’know, in a more controlled setting).

Above all, cops are paid to protect and serve…but if you were to ask the officers at the Dixon Police Department in Illinois, they’d probably say the job is about more than that.
Helping the community, solving crimes, these duties are just part of the work…but no one said they had to take time out of their busy and sometimes dangerous days to do this.
Recently, these neighborhood kids were battling the summer heat by playing with water guns in their yard when all of the sudden, officers from the Dixon PD attacked them — with more water guns!
This is so cute.
It’s so nice to see videos of cops having fun just like the rest of us. Let’s all use our phones and cameras to capture more moments like this.

Like outdoor and indoor cats, there are outdoor and indoor people. If you’re anything like me, you’re of the latter variety.
Being the sedentary creature I am with my office job and love of books, I can’t say that I’ve ever, ever wanted to hop on a bike and send myself hurtling over a cliff. The closest I ever get to thrill-seeking is watching other people do it for me.
And this guy is one of those people.
If doing a backflip over a 72-foot canyon seems like Hell on Earth to you, welcome to your nightmare!
Yeah, I think I’ll stick to reading. I’m weak and this is too much for me.
