During the years of 2007-2011, Maggie Smith continued to film the final Harry Potter movies, all while battling breast cancer. During the filming of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood prince, she had shingles and was forced to wear a wig in order to continue filming. On the subject, Smith said, “If there’s work to do I’ll do it. I’ve still got to stagger through the last Harry Potter. The cancer was hideous. It takes the wind out of your sails and I don’t know what the future holds, if anything…
LIKE I NEEDED MORE REASONS TO LOVE MAGGIE SMITH.
Maggie Smith is an awesome badass. In case you weren’t aware.
True Gryffindor indeed. All the love for Dame Maggie.
All the awards to Maggie Smith.
The Sumter Piece by Jonathan Brilliant
You know those useless wooden coffee stirrers that barely stir coffee but leave splinters in your tongue when you lick them? Well Jonathan Brilliant has found a much better use for them and creates extravagant installations by weaving them together. This particular piece uses 60,000 wooden stirrers and took Jonathon 14 days to weave together, and it’s important to note that no adhesive of any kind was used in the making of this.

MOTHER. OF. GOD.
CGI technology has brought the late Audrey Hepburn back to the screen, as she stars in a TV advertisement for the chocolate company, Galaxy. Hepburn’s sons, Sean Ferrer and Luca Dotti, said regarding the project: “Our mother often spoke about her love of chocolate and how it lifted her spirit, so we’re sure she would have been proud of her role as the face of Galaxy.” (watch the commercial here)
my jaw is on the floor oh my god

Who’s this man with the kindest face? He’s known as Grandpa Dobri. Here is his amazing story:
He’s a 98 year old beggar of Bailovo village in Bulgaria who’s become the most generous benefactor of the largest Cathedral in Eastern Europe…
Dressed in his home-spun clothes and ancient leather shoes worn in winter and summer he could often be seen standing outside the church St. Alexander Nevsky in Sofia somewhat detached and silently clutching his tin-box for coins.
Apparently he gets up early every day and walks the 10 kilometre route from his village Bailovo to Sofia. He enjoys speaking to the busy passers-by and kisses the hand of everyone who stops for a chat.
To people in Sofia he’s been known for many years simply as Grandpa Dobri - the beggar.
In 2010 during filming a documentary about the Nevsky Cathedral a journalist working for the Bulgarian national TV found in the church’s archives a shocking discovery - the most generous private donation that the church ever received was by no other than the old beggar - Granpa Dobri. It was an astounding EUR 40,000.
The 98-year-old Bailovo saint has not touched even a single penny from the money we all thought he lived off. He apparently lives only off his 100 Euro a month retirement and what people kindly leave him - mainly fruit and bread…
Now, having chosen a life of a hermit, he tours the churches on public holidays, raising money for temples and monasteries. 10 years ago, when he was “still young”…he says, he used to walk the distance from Sofia to Bailovo and other places - now he travels around the city by bus…
Most likely Dobri’s good deeds will remain a secret. People say he’s also helped numerous needy people living in shelters. Yet, he doesn’t want to talk about it..
Even if I haven’t meet him, I love him so much! May God protect him always and may He keep a place in His Kingdom for him! <3
