Just happy news today, as there’s plenty enough sad and worrisome stories in the “regular” news.
1. Woo-hoo! I read this on BBC News today:
2. Elephants are sensitive, highly intelligent animals Here’s a story that made me smile, via The Good News Network:
Officials at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center were afraid Raju would never be able to reconnect with his own species.
|Leave it to the ladies to make Raju feel welcomed. The Herd of Hope, how great is that?|
“Three of our female elephants Laxmi, Chanchal and Sai Geeta ran up to him – their ears flapping wildly –a sign they were excited and delighted to meet him.
All of them were rescued from a life of suffering and now are known collectively as the Herd of Hope.
3. And finally, I had to share this video sent to me by my animal-loving friend Joni. A dog regrets leaving her toy out in the yard:
Have a day filled with good news, and stay fabulous,
Thank you for sharing happy news! I hope the young professor becomes someone young girls can admire and look up to.
Three things to start the day off with a smile! Excellent news about Prof. Mirzakhani; she's brilliant, and has a cool hair cut! I loved watching that fox toss that toy around – I had no idea they would do that.
Wonderful post, Patti. I'm smilinng, you betcha.
That fox is so bouncy! Maybe the dog just wanted to join in 🙂
Thanks for the good news post. Much needed.XO JJ
One great post, Patti! Thanks.
Excellent news about Prof. Mirzakhani. As you say, high time. And especially gratifying that it's for a young woman's achievement in mathematics. So many of us have struggled there. And look, she's got a pixie cut! There must be a correlation , don't you think?
I'm always hesitant to read even positive articles about elephants these days. Their plight is so dire and there's so much bad news that it overwhelms the good stories. Glad I read this one, but I have to say I feel my eyes well up at the pathos that's still there.
Oh that adorable fox! Love the story about the elephants, and we have been talking to Claudia about the mathematician and her achievement – Claud's a maths whizz, so we're encouraging her to keep at it! xxxx
Awww, I'm all glowy and smiley now. Thank you! x
All of these brightened my day. Thanks, Patti!
