GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: Instant Karma – A Woman’s Lost Ring Is Returned After She Returns Someone Else’s Lost Ring

By |2020-02-26T06:21:42-06:00February 26th, 2020|

Here's some instant karma for you.  The good kind... Catherine Kenyon is getting her PhD at Clemson University in South Carolina.  Earlier this month, she made the local paper after she found someone's class ring in a parking lot and got it back to them.  It turned out they'd dropped it there four years ago. Catherine could relate, because HER class ring went missing after she left it on a bus in 2017.  But now the favor's been repaid.  Because two weeks after she returned the ring, some guy she'd never met texted a picture of HER ring that HE found.

Pete Davidson Says He Knew His Ariana Grande Relationship Was Over After Mac Miller Died

By |2020-02-25T10:10:49-06:00February 25th, 2020|

Real, Raw Pete Davidson. I love this guy. Why? Because he cuts through the bs and is completely honest. Instead of shuddering at the thought of him ending up with your daughter or sister, maybe hear him out. You'll learn how many women he's actually been with, why he's in and out of mental health facilities (not always drugs) and he reveals how he copes. I promise you may know a teen or two who is going through something similar. All they want is love and acceptance. Check out Pete's interview with Charlamagne Tha God.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJbqiHbusKY   Cari

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: An Elementary School Raised Money to Buy a Janitor a New Car

By |2020-02-25T06:25:40-06:00February 25th, 2020|

A guy named Robert Reed works as a janitor at an elementary school near Memphis.  And he makes a pretty serious trek to work each day, because he loves the people so much. Instead of getting a job closer to his house, he takes three busses and walks about two miles each way. So last week, a teacher decided to show him just how much he's appreciated by starting a GoFundMe campaign to buy him a CAR. A bunch of other teachers and parents got in on it too.  And less than 24 hours later, they'd already raised close to $10,000. [...]

TOP TRENDING: Mayo Slices Are Now a Thing That Exists

By |2020-02-24T07:47:38-06:00February 24th, 2020|

Two years ago, SLICED KETCHUP came out and went viral . . . even though it seemed pretty unnatural.  Well, this is even less natural. A company in Japan is taking preorders for MAYO SLICES.  You can buy a package of four slices of mayo that look just like slices of cheese . . . only, you know, they're mayo. For whatever reason, the company decided to FLAVOR the mayo slices with different types of fish.  There's no word on whether they might make it over to the U.S. . . . but would you even want them if they did?   (Here's [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Woman Delivers Her Own Baby, Then Rescues a Guy From a Burning Truck

By |2020-02-24T06:27:17-06:00February 24th, 2020|

I guarantee this mom in Indianapolis had a more hectic week than any of us:  35-year-old Holly McNally had to deliver her OWN baby last Monday when her doctor couldn't get to her hospital room on time. Then three days later, she helped pull a guy from a fiery WRECK. She was on her way home from the hospital on Thursday after visiting her son, who still had to be there for observation.  And she saw an overturned tanker truck on fire. So she stopped . . . jumped out of the car . . . and helped another person pull [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: A Nurse Cared for a Dad’s Baby 34 Years After Caring for Him as an Infant

By |2020-02-21T06:28:05-06:00February 21st, 2020|

A guy in New Brunswick, New Jersey named David Caldwell was freaking out last month when his fiancée went into labor 10 weeks early.  And a nurse named Lissa McGowan helped calm him down.  (It's pronounced like Lisa.) The best news is David's fiancée and their son Zayne are both doing well.  He's been putting on weight and getting stronger every day.  But they're in the news because of a weird coincidence. After Zayne was born, David started looking at old photos of himself as a baby, because he was also a preemie.  And it turned out Lissa was the same nurse [...]

GOOD DAY NEWS STARTER: An Officer Escorts an Eight-Year-Old Student to the Father-Daughter Dance After Her Dad Passed Away

By |2020-02-20T06:23:43-06:00February 20th, 2020|

Now THIS is how you step up.   A guy named Nick Harvey is a school resource officer in Van Buren, Arkansas.  And he's usually stationed at the elementary school.   An eight-year-old student named Avey Cox is in second grade there.  And tragically, her dad passed away during the holidays.   It's impossible to even imagine how hard that's been on her . . . and it got even HARDER earlier this month, when the school had its annual father-daughter dance.   So Nick got the idea to step in, and escort Avey to the dance.  He says, quote, "I [...]
