In the News- There's many things tonight!

Two proposals caught on camera.
On one news show, a weather-woman's boyfriend proposed to her while on air. As she was giving the weather forecast, her boyfriend suddenly showed up in a tux and popped the question. The surprised woman said yes and they proceeded to kiss while another lady's voice could be heard saying that they met at church. Aw.

In another proposal, a cheerleader for the Tennessee Titans was surprised during a football game when her boyfriend, dressed as Santa, paid her a visit. During a routine preformed during the halftime in a game against New Orleans, her boyfriend proposed. Another aw.

You can see the weather-woman's here and the cheerleader's here.

Cat gained millions

A cat, named Tommaso, inherited a $13 million fortune from a weathly widow of an Italian property tycoon. Maria Assunta died two weeks ago without any children and wanting to see the former stray of Rome taken care of, she left him her fortune. Her nurse, Stefania, now takes care of the rick kitty in a unknown location and says she didn't know the old lady had that much money. All she really knew was that the lady suffered from loniness.

This new founded riches places the cat at No. 3 on the list of top wealthy pets. He is behind Kalu the chimp who was left with $80 million and the dog Gunther IV, a german shepard who inherited $372 million from his father Gunther III. You can read the whole article here.

Extreme weight loss

Treasure trove

43-year old Tanja Höls, works as the janitor at the library in Passau, Bavaria, who has recently discovered a treasure trove of ancient silver coins and medals worth as much as six figures. Not only did the find happen to coincide with the libary's 400th anniversary, but it is a great find for the world.
The library believes that the collection of 172 well-preserved coins likely belonged to Passau's prince-bishops. Wennerhold suspects that they were hidden there around 1803 during Germany's secularization, when such church assets were transferred to the state. They may have wanted to keep them out of the hands of tax officials.
The coins date back from sometime between the Roman Empire and Napoleon's rule. Markus Wennerhold suspects that the most valuable will be decorative medals from the Baroque era. The money was probably forgotten because past library works didn't know their value and that none of the current workers knew they were there. This week the library will release photos of each coin and next year they will be put on display. The library was founded in 1612 as a Jesuit college and claims to be home to one of the oldest book collections in Germany. You can read the whole thing here.
