Bucket Baths & Bold Boxers

Smile when we tell you you're a lucky one. We've only just begun with this week's nostalgic hits.

On this day

Bowing out of the ring

When you step into the ring as often as Rocky Marciano did, you were bound to lose a fight. Instead, Marciano retired on this day in 1956 not only without a single loss to his name but also the heavyweight championship title. He's the only boxer to retire with the heavyweight crown.

Life lessons in the great outdoors

Only if we listened to all of our father's wisdom. Those life lessons surrounded by nature always hit the hardest, even in this decade.

On top of the world

"This is from our family holiday that we used to go on every year. On the left is my uncle Brian who passed away last year. I’m sitting on the stone, my cousin Ben is standing on the stone, then his brother Nicky and then my brother David. We used to go on trips every year to places like Dartmoor for a week with the whole extended family. They were happy times."
