In the midst of an abundance of bad news – rising COVID numbers, unemployment, evictions, homelessness and hunger – some good news stories still bubble to the surface.
We find ourselves mostly posting bad, sad or frustrating news in our Sunday newsletter. It’s not our fault, of course, but we want to make sure you come here and smile too. That’s why we’re bringing you this “Good News” column.

Thanks for sharing pleasant news it brightened my day!
Wow! and I thought I was old getting my Masters Degree at 74. I knew I would never use it to make money but when my oldest son got his masters I could not let him out do his father. I told him afterwards, “if he goes for his doctorate, I will not go for mine”. It is nice being retired with the only commitments is the upcoming doctor appointments.
Congratulations on getting your Masters Degree at 74, Glen! That’s very impressive! 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com
