I have decided to make a change in direction for the GoodNewsAlways blog.
Instead of looking for a bit of good news to share each day, I will be sharing stories and facts on bizarre, unique and generally far out facts specific to nature and our world.
I have always loved having a story to share about a strange reptile or bizarre insect or wild exotic location.
Now I will be sharing these with interested readers at my new blog:
I invite you to visit us – just getting off the ground but already finding some interesting tidbits for sure.
I thank you for your readership and hope to further entertain you at the new blog.
Good News Always will be taking a temporary break as we review our direction and plan for the future.
With readership as low it is, we need to figure out what readers want to read so we can write it!
If you have any recommendations, please forward our way.
In the meantime, we wish you Good News Always in your daily life.
Our friends at Facebook are adding 53 pages – one for each state and territory – to support the Amber Alert system to help find missing children across the country. The “real world” Amber Alert system of signs and notices has had much success and brought back many missing children to their anxious families. With the ubiquitous spread of Facebook and social media tools, the Amber Alert efforts should become that much more effective. Keep your eyes open and your typing fingers ready as you may be able to play a part.
Lions are not known ad the most trustworthy of beasts but there are exceptions to every rule. Take a look at this video of a mother lion who trusts one human being with her weeks old bundles of joy. Now THAT is a big cat!
Good news for green weed whacking - do you have a field of weeds, briars, or other unsightly undergrowth that you would like to clear away while at the same time being environmentally sensitive? Look no farther – Goats R Us is just the ticket. For a basic cost of $800 per acre, hungry goats will attack the problem at the root, responding to a combination of herding dogs and herding people. And they are thorough, leaving behind nothing in the way of vegetation. Of course, goats will be goats and they tend to leave behind their personal calling cards but just watch where you step and everything will be fine.
For those of us who remember the early days of TV and the excitement of watching The Streets of San Francisco with it’s local filming down SF streets and alleys, good news for the second fiddle next to Karl Malden. Michael Douglas who was diagnosed with advanced stage throat cancer back in August has weathered the devastating effects of chemotherapy and the good news is that his throat tumor is gone. This is only the first step in beating the disease and Michael will continue regular visits over the next three years to make sure he stays cancer free. After three years, he is considered cured. Hang in there – we are all waiting for Wall Street III – the continuing saga!
