Good News Edition – March 10, 2018


How’s everyone doing after the last Nor’easter? Seems we’d barely got out from under the first one (and some of you were still without power!) before the next one came barreling through this past Thursday. We sincerely hope that everyone stayed safe and reasonably comfortable; and to those of you still without power – hang in there!

Meanwhile, the goings on of the country and the world continue to surprise, baffle, horrify, and—in some cases—delight. Today’s post is all about the delight (and maybe a little cathartic laughter). Enjoy this week’s batch of happy headlines, and here’s to a week ahead with no more storms or power outages!
