wallet returned

When Christhian Reyes lost his wallet, he didn't expect to get it back the way it was returned.  A good samaritan added $20 and a note to the wallet before returning it to Christhian's school.  The note asks Christhian to pay it forward some day and do something nice for someone else.  Christhian plans to do just that.  returned wallet

Boston Strong Ducks


Rubber ducks have helped cheer up children at Sandy Hook and now they're being used to help people remember and "pay it forward" in honor of the Boston Marathon tragedy.  Lori Tosches loved to cheer on the runners from the starting line of the marathon.  But after the bombings, she wanted to do more.  She started a facebook page and scattered ducks around the start line with the page address on them. 
That started a series of random acts of kindness all over the world.  She started out by footing the bill for the ducks but now charges $5 each with part of the money going to the Boston victims.  Recipients of the ducks have been sending pictures to show how they have paid it forward with the Boston Strong Ducks.  On April 20, 2014, Lori will once again be at the starting line with ducks in tow.  Boston Strong Ducks

cloned pooch

There's a place in South Korea that will clone your pet for a mere $100,000.  A contest in the UK gave one lucky person the chance to make that happen at no charge.  Rebecca Smith won and got a tiny replica of her beloved wiener pooch, Winnie.  Mini Winnie was born on March 30.  Winnie

Corvettes

All 8 of the Corvettes that plunged into a sinkhole have been rescued.  Workers could see that the damage to each car got worse as they pulled them out.  The final car looks like a pile of thin aluminum.  General Motors has vowed to restore each of the cars but this last one is going to take a lot more work.  Corvettes

Rascal Flatts

Rascal Flatts admits to lip-synching at the ACM Awards and they apologized for it immediately.  Gary LeVox, lead singer, lost his voice before the telecast and couldn't back out so this is what they came up with.  But apparently they weren't very good at it.  They claim they won't be doing that again.  lip-synching
