Seeking Balance One Tuesday at a Time


Over 200 Animals Rescued from “Roadside” Zoo

“This is the first time in Quebec that animal welfare charges have been made by way of indictment – a type of prosecution reserved for the most serious offenses and which opens the door to more serious penalties.”

Alex Trebek: Progress Update

Alex Trebek is making progress in fighting pancreatic cancer, and it “has to be more than chemo.” He credit’s the tremendous love and support of family, friends, and fans for aiding in his progress. Some of his tumors have shrunk by more than 50%. Mr. Trebek, long time host of Jeopardy,  has vowed to beat the statistics. Here’s an overview from ABC news, and I found the following interview well worth watching.

How an Artist Saved His Town

This story might not be recent, but it’s never too late to make a difference. The government was going to tear down his town, but the “Rainbow Grandpa” started painting the buildings. Now, it’s a tourist attraction.

    • Thank you so much, Maggie! I love it too! Signing is something I’ve always wanted to learn, so to me, it’s a gift they’ve given to each other. I bet they were all excited about learning a new language.

    • Yes! I love how she pushes beyond the standard barriers. It’s never too late to dance, sing, paint, learn a new skill… Very encouraging! Thank you for this addition, M. !

  1. The story of the “Rainbow Grandpa” in Taiwan is a powerful reminder that one person, regardless of one’s age, can make a difference in the community.

    • Thank you for holding that hope up to the light, Rosaliene. When we look around and ask, “What can I do?” “How can I use my skills?” and just jump in there and do what we can, we CAN make a difference.

  2. JoAnna, I absolutely love what you do on this blog. Thank you for spreading good news!

  4. Wonderful stories, my friend … all heartwarming. Sad for the treatment the animals have received, but glad they are being rescued. Happy to hear that Alex is getting better. And I LOVED the painted village!

  5. The zoo story is good news, but the zoo horrific. I liked the Chinese Banksy

    • Yes. Animals live in horrific conditions, but I’m thankful that some people are waking up and following through on compassionate action. This is reported to be a landmark decision.
