Mister Rogers testifies before the Senate Subcommittee on Communications

On May 1, 1969, Fred Rogers, host of the (then) recently nationally syndicated children’s television series, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (named Misterogers’ Neighborhood at the time), testified before the Senate Committee on Commerce Subcommittee on Communications to defend $20 million in federal funding proposed for the newly formed non-profit Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which was at risk of being reduced to $10 million. Subcommittee chairman, Senator John Pastore (D-RI), unfamiliar with Fred Rogers, is initially abrasive toward him. Over the course of Rogers’ 6 minutes of testimony, Pastore’s demeanor gradually transitions to one of awe and admiration as Rogers speaks.

Parents Meet Their Adoptive Sons From Congo For The First Time!

Jennifer and James Grover began the adoptive process for their two sons way back in 2012, and the clip shows them FINALLY getting to meet them almost four years later. The couple found the adoption process difficult, however, as the Congalese government put a ban on adoptions. This meant Jennifer and James had to wait until earlier this month to meet their boys. Thankfully, their first meeting was captured in the incredibly heartwarming video

Tiny Origami apartment in Manhattan unfolds into 4 rooms

In 2005, third-grade-teacher Eric Schneider bought as big as an apartment as he could afford in Manhattan. He paid $235,000 for a 450-square-foot studio with a tiny kitchen.

Then he let architects Michael Chen and Kari Anderson of Normal Projects design a way to pack more density into his small space.

In order to fit more apartment in a small footprint, they created an object that’s bigger than furniture, but smaller than architecture and that morphs with the changing activities of a day.

It’s a large, blue, oversized cabinet that houses all of the walls/bed/tables/shelving/closets needed for at least 4 full-sized rooms.

By continuing to unfold, or fold differently, Schneider can create a bedroom with accompanying built-in nightstand and closets, but an office plus library, a guest bedroom, and a living room. Or close it up entirely and simply flip down the small bar and the room becomes entertaining space for a dozen.

The Normal Projects architects called their creation the Unfolding Apartment, though given Schneider’s affinity for the Japanese sense of space (he spent his first year post-college living and teaching in Japan), it could as easily be called the Origami Apartment.

In total, Schneider spent $70,000 total remodeling his new apartment and this includes not just the cabinet, but the bathroom renovation, all cabinetry, kitchen appliances, furniture and dishes.

In this video, Chen shows us his custom cabinet of rooms and Schneider unfolds a few of his favorite configurations: his bedroom (& closet/changing room), office (& library), guest bedroom, kitchen, dining bar, living room and lounge.

Husbands Time Lapse of Surprise Craft Room He Built for Wife and Daughter

My wife and daughter went away to visit family and left me alone for 20 days, in that time i transformed our basement with the new craft room they had been dreaming about. It was a ton of work, but with them gone i could work all hours of the night.

I didn’t get it 100% finished as i still need to trim the table top edges and i have a sink and faucet that’s going to go on the small counter by the fridge, but the hard work is done and the surprise was not diminished. The rolling table I made was a Lego table for the other room. Since i knew the video would be pretty long i didn’t record the painting of the larger basement room which will someday be our home theater.
