(Sorry for being late today. I was focused on doing my yoga at home to stay home and do homey things. The good news is, I did my yoga then practiced with my 8 lb weights. I was folding towels when I thought, Wait. What day is it? it’s Tuesday. OMG, Good News Tuesday!)

A Rescue Team Freed a Right Whale from Lobster Pots and Rope
A team from Clearwater Marine Aquarium Research Institute and others freed a North Atlantic Right Whale, nicknamed Argo, from lobster pots and commercial fishing rope tangled around his tail. Some of the rope was imbedded in his tail and the weight was slowing him down so much he was only able to use his front flippers to swim. At first, Argo tried to avoid the rescuers but later stayed close to the surface, perhaps knowing they were trying to help. We don’t know if Argo will make it, but at least now, he has a chance and time to swim free. Here’s the story and a video.
Michelle Yeoh Wins the Best Actress Award for Best Picture
I haven’t yet seen, Everything, Everywhere, All at Once, the movie voted best picture by the Academy, but I did enjoy Michelle Yeoh’s acceptance speech after winning the best actress award. I believe she is the first Asian American to win the award which she called “a beacon of hope and possibility.” She also said, “Ladies, don’t let anyone ever tell you, you are past your prime.”

I have finally started doing weight and strength training after practising just yoga and going for walks, for the past 4 years.
Realised as you tip 50s it’s important to build your strength.
Right now achy all over, but the body gets used to it eventually.
No pain no gain. 🙂
Having said that, yes such heartening news and thank you for sharing so many.
Asia making a mark at the Oscars was something this time, though I didn’t quite understand why the song Natu, Natu from Indian cinema cut the mark. Lol! The Elephant Whisperer deserves its place and rightfully so.

I agree about needing to work on strength building as we get older. At 67, I have to work hard just to try to maintain muscle. Thanks for mentioning The Elephant Whisperer which I missed as I did not watch all of the Oscars. Just looked that up. Very glad it won!

There is another film called All that Breathes again from India which was nominated and is a beautiful true story on climate change. If you get a chance do watch it.
Sending you happy vibes for a good week ahead!
