#R2BC Wednesday’s #GoodNews – A Record Day

Some days I have to wonder about the editorial policies of major news networks. I will admit that I am a royalist but as much as Elizabeth II’s record breaking run is a genuine moment of history, I cannot help but say that child mortality being HALVED since 1990 is worthy of celebration and a […]

Blast from the past, as one of Sir John Franklin’s vessels is found in Northern Canada. Lost for 160 years, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, were lost in the search for the fabled North West passage; also just happens to be one of my favourite folk tunes. In other good news it’s great to hear […]

#R2BC Friday’s #GoodNews – A whale of a day

While not big on number of stories the few today certainly pack a punch.
