All Happy News Network!

Hey!  Wouldn't that be great?  Not fake happy news, I
mean genuine upbeat stories breaking all day.  I'd
love that.  I know the world is plagued with climate
change disasters, corrupt politicians and corporations,
even with people cheating their children into Yale.
I teach once a week at a community college, and cheating
is something we teachers detest.  Still.

What if there was a real news network you could turn
to that gave you nothing but good news.  I am sure there
are enough of those every day to power a 24 hour news
cycle, and I'm not saying I'd watch or listen to such a
station full time.  But how sweet to take a break and
hear only good news.

Searching through my paintings today I realized I could
probably have a whole show dedicated to clementines.
(maybe some lemons and limes too.)  This got my husband
Steven, and me laughing and trying to sing Oh My Darling
Clementine -- which we insisted would have to be played on
a ukelele.  You get the idea. So how about it?  If you have a
 happy news story -- why not share it?  It's a very grey day here
in Toronto and we are ready for All Good News.

Have a sharing your good news day.
