Hello, and welcome to Friday!
I had blogs written earlier this week. Gnomes snuck in my house and stole them. They kept saying something about “Step 1- steal underwear.” I don’t know.
But seriously, I lost a blog this week, and I’m not sure where it went. I thought I lost two, but apparently the other one auto-saved. (Thank you, blog gods!). I got frustrated though, and that’s why there were no blogs this week. I’ll do better next week.
Here are this week’s feel good Friday articles.
San Antonio woman fined for feeding the homeless has her case dismissed. Joan Cheever has been operating The Chow Train for over 10 years, and recently was fined, because it’s apparently illegal to feed the homeless. She cited religious freedom, stating that’s the way she prays. Now that the case has been dismissed, it will be interesting to see what’s next for the law.
The California made some changes that please animal activists. And as we all know, change often begins in California before it comes to the rest of us.
“Growing Local” is both the name of a documentary about farmers and a trend toward determined farmers who believe in the food they grow, and increasing consumer want for sustainable, local foods. There’s a short article and the trailer for the documentary attached.
The Malawi chief changed the law, raising the minimum age for marriage to 16. She annulled marriages for more than 300 children (both boys and girls) in her district and sent them back to school.
There’s a lot more good news in the world, but these are the stories I picked this week.
Go forth and be amazing today!
