I just had an idea: to get our minds of all the bad news the media presents us with how about we have a thread in which people can post any good news they come upon? And it can be personal, national or international news!
My good news of the day was finding out that the UK government says it is not taking the sort of scary action that campaigners against Codex Alimentarius have said is about to happen and supplements will still be available without a prescription:
OK, who is going to be next with some good news?
It's the weekend and it's my birthday on Sunday. I'm being taken out for lunch tomorrow...
And, it looks like I got paid by Adsense today ($133 Canadian)
I'm always hoppy. And will be divorced soon
And my daughter achieved top grade results in school. Well done frogspawn
Tiger Woods is a terrible driver (Off the Course - pun intended), but expensive luxury cars offer great safety features for terrible drivers.
Preparations A through G were a failure. But I believed success was in hand with preparation "H".
did I kill this one? i'm sorry.
Please, continue with the good news.
there is also good news with the sitz-bath already - have you tried it?
Shaq paid for that adorable little girls funeral that was killed in FL(I think it was Florida).
Nice to see a celeb not be so self endulged.
My son made it to his 14th birthday!
My daughter is home from school for 4 days!

I survived Black Friday while staying in bed & sleeping.
I had a wonderful day, spent with good friends.
The lard I have been making turned out. *huge sigh of relief*
I was given a sun lamp. Bye, bye SAD/standing at the window all day!
My only good news is that the Thanksgiving dishes are all put away, so are the post-Thanksgiving-meal dishes, and the dishes from two day-after-Thanksgiving get-together's, as well as all those other dishes that just kept being dirtied for reasons not particularly associated with anything name-able. Life is good when all those extra dishes are put away and you get back to sandwich plates and your one coffee mug.
The good news is that I had a back tooth out on Wednesday night and I have had no pain afterwards and no need for the painkillers the dentist prescribed for three days afterwards. In fact my mouth is back to normal and the problem has gone!
Bard, your post is such good news, that will do me for today!
My good news is that it's another 3 day week-end here! Tomorrow is a holiday and I gave my people the half-day off last Friday. So we have peace and quiet here for 3 and a half days .
Today marks the official end of the hurricane season.
Hurray! It was raining so hard that the water came in through my windows. Yes, I sleep with my windows open!Since I got up to close them and was fully awake at 4:30 a.m,I decided to read my mail,search folders for photos to use and put in some time on HubPages.
Been catching up with friends (on Facebook),I haven't heard from for years.
I had dinner with my sister the other night . . . it was the first time we'd been face-to-face in twenty years.

I just bought 2 coach bags and a coach wallet the other day and i can't wait to wear them.
Hi; I'd like to tell you about something that happeneg in my neighbourhood. The good news got nowhere near the publicity the bad news got.
Two 13 year old Hispanic girls were walking home from a convenience store when a van pulled up. Two black youths got out and shot them. Killing one and wounding the other.
Within a few days, at another part of town, a young black man was walking home when a car pulled up and two Hispanic men got out and shot and killed the young black man.
Here's the part that didn't get reported so well;
There was some money raised for the family of the girl who was killed and with everything else the father had $3,500 extra. So he arranged a meeting with the father of the young black man and gave him the money to help him bury his son.
That's the kind of good news that needs to be reported.
I copied a Christmas stocking one of the other nurses on base was making/ for our 2 grandchildren. My David took me to Millers Surplus, I got two camo tops for 2.99 each, one winter (for the boy) and one desert (for the girl) and made them up so easy yesterday! Big and lots of pockets and buttons and one patch says attack to defend (I really like that one) and the other one is from air force centaf...anyways very pretty. Yes, I realize our son is USMC and these camo tops are not digital camo but there are few marines in the sonoran desert at this time:) so I chose the cutest and the cheapest to play with (especially since it was my first time to try it!!) They turned out really good and I hope I hope the grandkids love their stocking as much as the stuffers full of 'good junk' my David and I are going to put inside them feliz navidad
I almost have all my bills paid and still have a little bit of money in the bank! Hells yea.
Might finally have a freakin' job by next week!!! OOH YEAH!!!
hmmm....I got my story printed and starting on editing and proofreading. I'm on page 5 of 196 pages
This may not seem glorious compared to the other stories here...
I got a letter from my credit union today. They are offering "Skip-A-Payment" this month.
So, I do not have to make my loan payment in December.
Maybe by January, I will find a way to make up for my salary cut. In the meantime, I'm grateful to my CU.
I had a couple of teeth pulled today, one being a wisdom tooth; and here pretty soon I'll be having about a couple of my front teeth pulled, and will be getting partials.
Normally this wouldn't be good news, but I've waited for about eight years to get into the affordable dental clinic here.
Oh, and having this day, and possibly the next two days off is pretty good in itself.
This morning, walking to work at 6 a.m
I heard a tawny owl shriek right above my head.
I got up this morning.
(It is good news according to the bedtime prayer.)
My good news, had 2 orders on amazon this morning and one conversion. Assuming they don't cancel the order and all goes well I will have my first amazon sale!!!!!!!!!

I don't know about you, but I am so tired of reading or hearing of all the bad news going on in this world. Surely, there is some good news out there in the world! If you've read of something good, inspirational, positive, heartwarming, humans being kind to one another ...anything good,...

I'm seeing an uptick in views the past few days, today being the best. I'm wondering if anybody else is having this same thing happen? It's in both subdomains, but in my main one, views have doubled. Almost afraid to like it because it seems odd for my stuff at this time of...

Hey Hubbers,It seems to be missing from the forum. It appears that many hubbers only come to help and then lurk above watching the forums.It seems as though there is no one chatting on a regular basis and that is because many hubbers have left the forums due to other people.So, I contend to now...
