    GOOD NEWS, Brian I thought you were going to say something like FINALLY in California the state got its much needed rain. Here in Palm Beach FL we could use some as Big Lake Okeechobee is residing but my orchid collection is thriving though. Smiles.

    Looking for more good news...

    Oh how I wish, g! We may get a little rain up in the high country but very unlikely here. The concern there is that means just as much of a chance of lightning starting a fire.

    Cool story about Raju, Kat! Love them elephants!

    Nice story up there in B.C. too, oftenreading!

    Always good to read a little good news!

    That a good trick, Kat! If you're like me and full of hot air you can even simply breath heavily on a sticker to loosen it.

    I used to use lighter fluid on records and books which works great but that stuff is toxic! I switched to Citrasolv which works really well and is non-toxic. The only catch is to watch for porous surfaces. Citrasolv tends to soak into more porous paper and sometimes leaves a very slight stain (but rarely). And it smells nice!

    Congrats on the new additions to the family, Earl! I'm sure you'll get to sleep through the night some time before 2017, so hang in there!

    That's the great thing about dogs. Poor hummingbird wouldn't last two minutes around one of our kitties.

    Congratulations, Earl!

    I think it's so great that more and more countries are forbidding the use of animals on circuses, it's a very good trend :)

    Ducks are pretty badass. Smart, too. Intuitive.

    My good news? No bad news. Simple, beautifully so.

    I'm breathing, alive, smiling, loved (just giving it away too - though judiciously; shit ain't cheap!), and at the moment in no pain.

    And been digging on some sweet dog rescue good news stories this evening.

    ^^^ Sounds like a mellow evening, Hedo. Nice.

    I used to work at this community college that had a park across the street with a pond and lots of ducks. Just sitting there watching them was always so calming. And it's cool how them come swooping down, skimming on the water surface to land.

    I saw some fresh little ducklings off the dock yesterday on our first trip out on the boat for the year.
    I stopped to watch them and MamaDuck told me to "move along dickbag" with appropriate vigor.

    Honestly, I'm not a fan on these re-creating of photos. Why? Leave the original beauty as is. Just seems forced otherwise, at least to me.

    All the shit going down these days, been searching out truly positive stories/observances, trying to contribute my own as well. No fanfare or views or going viral needed either. Doing alright with this.

    People have been kind way before the internet's exposure. May it continue to be that way.

    I think the photo recreation thing is just a bit of fun. It's interesting to see the changes to people over time when putting them into a past context. I think it is meant to be a bit jarring, and simply funny for the folks doing it. :)
