We go to the definition of commitment. How would you celebrate the wonderful 50th anniversary of your marriage to the woman you love and married 50 years ago. some couples would go on a cruise, some would fly around the world, and other would stay home and enjoy the company of each other. this couple from denton, Greater Manchester celebrated by eating a present that was given to them on the day of their wedding. they were given a can of chicken, a can with a whole chicken on the inside. if any of us got that today we would throw a nasty fit. The couple, husband was 73 at the time, wife around 68, at the can of chicken and said they never felt better. A food safety expert from salford university said that canned food can last indefinitely as long as it's sealed properly with high temperatures and under high pressure so that it creates a tight vacuum seal, normal shelf life should be about 6 months. this was back in 2006, not sure how the couple is doing, but if 50 year old chicken didn't kill them , then i can safely assume they are still alive and kicking.

philadelphia, city of brotherly love, but how did it come to have this name and nickname all at once. William penn, apparently was a hard man to figure out because no one could understand what was going through his head when he decided to give philly its name. what we do know is that he aimed high. Philadelphia is a combination of 2 greek words, phileo, which means love , and adelphos, which means brother. join those 2 together, switch them around and add a few years to that and you have a city with a nickname.
