Good News


We were out at the house today, which is ready for the rough in inspection, which means the electric and water lines are run.  It is a beautiful day here in eastern Pennsylvania.  Sunny and temperatures in the 70’s made spring cleanup of the yard a pleasant task.  Hubby even planted some early spring seeds:  radishes, lettuce, peas.

On the way home we stopped at a sandwich shop.  Hubby’s sandwich came wrapped in this “newspaper.”  The news is all from Sunday, November 19,1989.  The news is all actual new from this day in history.  Take a good look at the picture. (I hope you can read it.)

What do you notice about these actual news events?  I can’t  wait any more.  ‘lt is all good news: The first Women in Space, Remarkable Upset in Olympic History, Titanic Found,  The Berlin Wall Falls, plus the hot movie was E.T. – The Extra-terrestrial.

We hear about how horrible, and bad news is.  Lately, we hear news called fake when the powers that be don’t like their coverage.  Back in 1989, the press was called biased, but jjournalists were believed honest, hard working people.

There was plenty of bad news in 1989, but there was also good news.  It was good to be reminded of this really terrific good news.  I bet if we stop focusing on our divisions,  we will be able to see some really good news today.

I challenge you to look for the good news today.

  1. Ahhh but taking just the headlines into account things may not be as they seem.
    First Woman In Space: Aliens send her back for talking to much and trying to rearrange everything
    Upset in Olympic History: All reports and records found to be falsely recorded
    The Berlin Wall fall: Worst workplace accident in Berlin’s history
    Titanic found: New movie expected to come up next decade
    The only good news story is
    ET: Drew Barrymore is cute as an 8 yr old!

    New headlines are what you make of them, give me a page for toady’s newspaper and I’ll put a positive spin on all the headlines so that it looks like it’s worth reading 🙂

    Good news on the house though!

    Oh and yes I put too much effort into silly replies and comments than I should 🙂


    1. I loved Drew. I was seriously hoping she would end up my daughter-in-law. She is just a little younger than my oldest boy, and he did have a thing for her back then. Then he met a girl more geographically desireable.

      1. I loved Drew too, still do, although I loved her more in Firestarter (because we were both a bit older and more mature) 🙂 I would have been happy for her to be more geographically desirable to me as well 🙂
