Only the Good News

There are plenty of places to get all the news, so why not a place to get only the GOOD stuff?

As often as we can, we will post little bits of goodness that we find. It might be something we experienced personally, something we found online, or something you submit to us. It will have one common thread, and that is that it will be something good happening in the world.

How can you help? You can tell us about the good things you see in the world. You can tell others, too. (I mean, we don't intend to be the only place sharing happiness, after all!) Basically, what we're saying is...share goodness!

Bringing you bits and pieces of goodness everywhere,
Nathan & Michelle

If you've never made sourdough bread before, we've got a link for you below. And...apparently people name these things. So, if you do start a sourdough ...

International parcel with no address finds rightful recipient

Well this is nice. A parcel which was just addressed to "somewhere in Sheffield" was correctly delivered to the correct recipient after the postman decided that he just could not allow it to go undelivered. Marten Wedebrand, from Sweden, sent the parcel to his friend David Easson and marked the parcel with the words "vital survival stuff". He did not know the address of his friend so instead he just wrote all that he knew ...

We all need a ‘Zoom suit’!

This is just such a great idea. If you're one of the 50% of the human population that is under some kind of regime of staying at home as much as possible, you might enjoy this! It's easy for routines that were once the bedrock of our lives to start to slip. You used to: get up at 7am have a nourishing breakfast have a shower clean your teeth great dressed in suitable attire for ...

It's thought that the lack of movement of people and the resultant reduction in pollution has made the air cleaner and clearer. Less cars, less planes and less factories has ...
