Tuesday’s Good News!
1. Another “happiness hotline” is going viral. This time, a fifth-grade class in Indiana did it. You can choose to hear a joke, a fun fact, or a pep talk. They’ve also got them in Spanish. The number is 574-832-4965.
(A kindergarten class in California made the news a few weeks ago for a similar hotline.)
2. A woman in South Carolina told her mom she was feeling lucky. So her mom said to buy a lottery ticket . . . and she won $30,000.
3. A British soldier just set a world record, and raised a bunch of money for charity, by completing the longest solo journey across the Atlantic in a rowboat. “Solo” means no one was allowed to be there and assist in any way. He started in Portugal on December 21st . . . went 4,500 miles . . . and landed in Florida after 111 days.
4. And in related news: A lawyer from London just set a new world record for fastest solo row across the Atlantic for a woman. She went just over 2,500 miles, and did it in about 40 days. The previous record was more than 49 days.
