That Christmas tree is made of a lot of plastic bottles
December 27th, 2018 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]

Most people buy pine trees to celebrate Christmas, while others go with a plastic one. For example, the town of Gobierno del Estado de Aguascalientes in Mexico has the largest plastic bottle sculpture. According to Guinness Book of World Records that festive tree is made of 98,000 plastic bottles and weighs a whopping 22 tons.

I don’t think it will be going anywhere anytime soon. Which is a good thing because it is for an environmental care campaign that 70 local schools assisted in making. What a way to make a powerful statement you cannot ignore.


You are never too old to enjoy cake on your birthday, even on your 118th one!!!
October 30th, 2018 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: 1 ]

Julia Flores Colque turned the big 1-1-8 on the 26th, making her the oldest living person in the world. That is if Guniess Book of World Records accepts her 1900 birt into their book. Which I am sure they will, now that they know about her.

Whether they do or not, she still has reason to celebrate. She is 118 years old. You would think after blowing out the candles that many times, she would get bored of doing it. But she still has wishes to make. Plus, who does not love eating their own birthday cake? She loved every bite.

She also loves playing the flute. When she is not doing that she is playing the guitar and singing a song for her cats, dogs and anyone who will listen including her 65-year-old grandniece, whom she lives with according to ABC News.

If I live to be that old, I hope to enjoy life as much as she does!


Watch a 106-year-old man ride a zipwire!
September 6th, 2018 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]

You know the expression, you are as old as you feel? When it comes to Jack Reynolds, he feels much much younger than his years.

For his 104th birthday, he became the oldest man to get his first tattoo. He followed that Guinness World Record up with becoming the oldest man, at 105, to ride a roller coaster. In April, when he turned 106, he did it again by being the oldest person to ride a zipwire.

A camera caught him enjoying his ride. Even though he is 106 years old, his joyful face looked 100 years younger. Proving, you are never too old to be a kid at heart. His joy brought me so much joy. It is hard not to smile as huge as he is smiling.

I cannot wait to see what he does to top this all for his big 1-0-7!

While this is an old record, it is resurfacing now because the 2019 Guinness Book of World Records came out last week.

This couple has been married for 80 years and counting!
August 8th, 2018 under Guinness World Records. [ Comments: none ]

When you get married, they say until death do you part. Well for Masao and Miyako Matsumoto, it looks like they don’t ever want to part. That is because the couple, who will be celebrating their 81st wedding anniversary in October, is now in the Guiness Book of World Records for being the world’s oldest living married couple

On July 25th, when they got the title, Masao was 108 years and 16 days old while his wife Miyako was an even 100 and 243 days old.

The Japanese couple was married in 1937 and they have 5 daughters, 13 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren with one more due later this month.

Even though they have been married for over 80 years, they still look very much in love. Who doesn’t want to have a love like theirs? I know I dream of it every night and still nothing.


When Guinness World Record attempts fail!
July 3rd, 2018 under Guinness World Records, The Princes of England. [ Comments: none ]

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were visiting Wales today, so chef Owen Hall thought he would make them a nice cake. Actually, he attempted to make the World’s Largest Welsh Cake for the Guniess Book of World Records and the Royals, but it did go as planned. As you can see with the video that People’s Simon Perry shared of part of the 77lbs. creation falling to the ground.

Even though it was a cakestrophe, the chef vowed to bake another one in the future. Hopefully, they will save a piece for Prince Charles when they try to break the record again.
