A journey to married life

Marriage is a door which looks out upon a beautiful view. As that door is opened and the horizon unfolds before you, know that nothing is sweeter than the warmth of one hand within another. -- Collin McCarty

Half man half tree

Posted by kcarballo

My brother was surfing the net the other night and found this very interesting story about a man who is half tree and half man. Meet Dede, a 32 year old fisherman who lives in a remote village in Indonesia. Dede has a skin condition were he has root like structures coming out of his body and can get up to 5cm a year. This comes out of his hands and feet and he also has welts all over his body. To support his family, Dede actually joined the circus under "freak show" and was famously called "The Treeman". Dr. Anthony Gaspari travelled to Indonesia and tried to diagnose this extraordinary skin condition. Until now no news about the findings of his condition. If ever a cured was found to Dedes skin condition, it could dramatically change his whole life.
