Good News: Snowmen, Fist-Bumps, and Long-Lost Brothers

Here are a few more good news stories making the rounds . . .

1.  Two long-lost half-brothers in the U.K. just found each other at age 85 and 87.  They had the same dad, but didn’t know about each other until now.  One of their granddaughters was researching her family history and figured it out.

2.  Firefighters saved a dog that fell through some ice in Colorado this month.  It was a little tougher than you’d expect, because the dog was a 155-pound Saint Bernard.

3.  A bunch of students at the University of Florida broke a world record the other day for most fist-bumps by a mascot in three minutes.  Their gator mascot stood on their football field while they ran in a circle and fist-bumped him over and over.  The old record was 220, and they crushed it with 340.

4.  A lot of spots in the U.S. are getting more snow this week.  Here’s a cool way to pass the time:  A Children’s Hospital in Colorado is asking people to build snowmen based on kids’ drawings.  It’s the third year they’ve done it.  You can sign up online, just google the phrase “Say Hi with a Snowman Signup Form“.
