"One Piece Of Good News" Returns!

Back in 2012 or 2013, I used to post "One Piece Of Good News" weekly. Did that for a couple years, but you know, you get busy, distracted, maybe even lazy.

However, with John Krasinski starting the "Some Good News" show, I thought to myself, this sounds familiar. Certainly on a MUCH larger scale, but the spirit of my posts the exact same thing as what John is doing.

SO, instead of weekly, I intend to find one piece of good news each day to share with you from somewhere in the world. Something extraordinary or unbelievable (in a good way). Someone going out of their way. Or even something frivolous that can put a smile on our face.

Thank you, John Krasinski for being a beacon of joy and hope in a very uncertain world.

AND thank you to Tom might be asking, who's Tom Moore. Well, he just turned 100 years old and rasied $22 million dollars for health service in the UK to aid in the battle against Coronavirus.

Check out this "absolute legend"......

LONDON (Reuters) - A 99-year-old British war veteran who has raised more than 17.9 million pounds ($22.3 million) for the health service by walking laps of his garden was praised by Queen Elizabeth’s grandson as an “absolute legend”.
Tom Moore, retired army captain who served in India, Burma and Sumatra during World War Two, became a symbol of British endurance in the face of adversity after completing 100 laps of his garden in a fundraising effort for the health service.
Moore, who has used a walking frame with wheels since breaking his hip, had aimed to raise 1,000 pounds by completing his challenge before his 100th birthday on April 30.
