What This Pizzeria Employee Did for Terminally Ill Man 500 Miles Away is Beyond Epic

We need more stories like these.

With all of the insanity floating around out in the world today and our nation more divided than ever along political lines, it’s refreshing sometimes to just sit back and read a feel good story.

Something to remind you that, while things are certainly dark at the moment, there’s still a lot of good being done in the world by folks who still remember what it’s like to be human. One such individual is an employee from Steve’s Pizza, a restaurant in Michigan, who did something wonderful for a terminally ill man.

Julie and Rich Morgan used to live in Battle Creek, Michigan 25 years ago and one of Rich’s favorite places to eat was Steve’s Pizza. Rich would always bring home a pie from the restaurant each payday, even when money was tight.

The couple eventually moved to Indianapolis, but the delicious pizza from Steve’s, and the memories they made eating them, have stuck with them ever since.

The Morgans had planned to visit the restaurant again, but a trip to the emergency room changed all of that. Rich is now at home receiving hospice care, his battle with cancer coming quickly to an end.

But here’s the beautiful part of the story.

Knowing how much that pizzeria meant to the couple, Julie’s dad called Steve’s Pizza to see if someone could send a card or text to cheer them up. But Dalton Shaffer, a manager, had a different idea.

“Well, what kind of pizza do they like?” Shaffer asked Julie Morgan’s father, according to MLive.com.

Her father quickly sought to clarify that he was calling from Indianapolis – nearly 200 miles away and in a different state. Shaffer, 18, said he understood and promised to make the special delivery of two 16-inch pepperoni and mushroom pizzas as soon as he closed the restaurant just after 10 p.m.

“And so, while Rich and I slept, at 2:30 a.m., Dalton rolled into our driveway, left the car running and delivered two extra special pizzas to my waiting family,” Julie said. “He told them we were in his prayers, and offered to help in any way he could.”

Julie said Shaffer also refused an offer from the family to put him up in a hotel. He also immediately left, she said, so he could make it home in time for work in the morning.

Shaffer is the nephew of Steve’s Pizza’s owner and has been working at the restaurant for about two years, according to the Battle Creek Enquirer.

“I just wanted to do that for them,” he told the newspaper. “I just wanted to make them happy.”

He added that he didn’t plan on telling anyone about his out-of-state trek – including his uncle.

“I just hope people could keep that family in mind and pray for them,” Shaffer said.

“I am beyond overwhelmed by this act of genuine kindness,” Julie Morgan said. “Dalton brought our family so much joy – and the best pizza in the world – at a really difficult time. While ‘thank you’ hardly seems adequate – from the bottom of my heart, thank you, Dalton from Steve’s Pizza in Battle Creek, MI for making your epic middle of the night pizza delivery!”

Shaffer ended up driving a total of 450 miles round-trip to make the delivery. Here’s the real kicker, though. Steve’s pizza doesn’t even offer delivery service.

Trump, Ready to Make A Deal, Has Shutdown Compromise Offer for Dems

Will this be the compromise that brings us back to full federal strength, or will Nancy Pelosi pull another petulant and pedantic stunt in order to “resist” the President?

government shutdown

There is little doubt that the democrats have been remiss in their duties to the American public, specifically in regard to the nation’s longest government shutdown.

We’re closing in on a month of this stalemate, where nearly 800,000 federal workers are being expected to put in the hours at their jobs for no pay.  The TSA has been hit the hardest, perhaps, with their underpaid staff simply quitting or calling in sick in order to find other work.

This security staff shortage has created incredibly long lines in the nation’s airports, has forced Miami International Airport to close an entire terminal, and may have been responsible for allowing a firearm to make it onto a Delta flight.

It seems as though the President is ready to make a deal to end this nonsense, however.

President Trump plans to use remarks from the Diplomatic Reception Room on Saturday afternoon to propose a notable immigration compromise, according to sources familiar with the speech.

Details: The offer is expected to include Trump’s $5.7 billion demand for wall money in exchange for the BRIDGE Act — which would extend protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) — and also legislation to extend the legal status of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, according to a source with direct knowledge.

Now the question will be whether or not the democrats are willing to negotiate with the Commander in Chief.

Earlier in the week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi drew the ire of President Trump by simply refusing to meet with him regarding a shutdown compromise – a move that angered a vast swath of the fed-up and frankly furious American populace.

GPS Watch Info Could Send Mafia Hitman Away for a LONG TIME

This is far from the first time that this sort of information has uncovered secrets, either.

There is no doubt that we often take for granted the risks involved with the latest and greatest technological advancements we enjoy, specifically in the realm of personal devices.

Sure, it is a fantastic advantage to carry around a cell phone capable of telling us exactly where we are at any given time, especially on a planet as vast as our own.  Not to mention that, with Wikipedia, we are able to know virtually anything in just a matter of a few seconds of thumb-work.

Heck, just yesterday I ordered a smoked chicken plate from a BBQ restaurant using only my smartphone.  And it was delicious.

But we must remember that there is a downside to all of this rampant connectivity.  Namely, that all of this information is being stored somewhere, and that this storage isn’t always the most private.

Take one mafia hitman, for example, who learned this lesson the hard way.

A British runner, cyclist, and mob hitman has been convicted for the murders of two rival gangsters, in part, because of his GPS watch. Mark “Iceman” Fellows, 39, was found guilty by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court of killing organized crime leader Paul “Mr. Big” Massey and his associate John Kinsella, 55 and 53 at the time of their deaths. Massey and Kinsella were also career criminals, part of a gang scene near Manchester, England, with a reputation known across Europe, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Though police already suspected Fellows in Kinsella’s death, it was his Garmin Forerunner that linked him to Massey’s unsolved 2015 murder. While detectives were investigating Fellows, they came across a photo of the suspect wearing his Garmin Forerunner during 2015’s Great Manchester 10K (he ran 47:17, pictured above) two months before the murder of Massey that July. Detectives then located the device at Fellows’s home and checked its GPS data for files that could link him to Massey.

This is far from the first time that this sort of information has uncovered secrets, either.

A company called Strava had earlier released a “heat map” of their products’ usage which publicly revealed a number of secret military installations where personnel were wearing their devices.
