Good things happen, sometimes when you least expect it

The bait experience and change of military recruitment of a friend motivated surplus for advice and referral of an attorney. The story update illustrates the camaraderie of the Daily Kos community: “Thank you to everyone who intervened. I will not forget that when I asked for help you were there for this boy. I was feeling pretty desperate. Good things happen when you least expect them. ”

Rise above the swamp history recounts how she went out of her way to fulfill a family tradition that Grandma Ada described in a commentary to Greetings and teasing: “I have an ancestor buried in the Methodist Cemetery in East Jewett, New York,” wrote Grandma Ada. “Our family has a tradition that if we are around, we should go there and have a picture taken at his grave.”

In response, Rise above the swamp saw an opportunity and offered to help. “East Jewett is only 72 miles from me! Send me a selfie, I’ll place it on the grave and take a picture of you! “Sure enough, Rise shared a selfie photo of Grandma Ada, glued to the handle of an old shovel propped up next to her ancestor’s headstone.

We can be equally thoughtful to disagree, like when the Community was quick to evaluate a rah-rah cryptocurrency history, with only eight recommendations for 211 comments. Critics, however, attacked the concept, not the author. G2Geek’s commentary sums up the answer: “Progressive patriots pay our taxes (the price of civilization), unlike tax scammers who use Shitcoin and take advantage of the rest of us.”

When Glen the Plumber and his daughter took over a desert in the eastern Sierra trip to a creepy graveyard, they also discovered a creepy clown motel. And, as their friends do, they shared their road trip saga at Kitchen Table Kibitzing, a story that It quickly became too popular to need a ransom.

“When planning our recent trip to explore the Eastern Sierras, I noticed that Clown Motel (Tonopah, NV) was only a couple of hours from our planned route. My little one has always watched ghost hunter type shows on YouTube. So, I added a day to our trip to explore the desert and spend a night at the motel … My little one had to play the part. You could assume that she brought those clown-inspired clothes, but it’s actually an outfit that she wears normally. “You can see that photo above (daughter is on the right 🤡).

Finally, ColoTim, in its weekly meeting For Coloradans, it reflects a common problem faced by people in the western states: The vegetation is super dry and we fear the high risk of wildfires this summer. Xerorest’s commentary represents our grief over past wildfires as well as present concerns: “94 degrees again today. No rain for two weeks. Scary orange sun. I can’t see the mountains because of the smoke. The same as last year “.

Community interactions around wildfires, a topic that has fiercely focused my attention this week, was an unexpected respite. They reminded me that the world shares these unavoidable realities, not just the American West, as fires also burn in Siberia and the Amazon, and our western fires are consuming the eastern US alone; For a moment, I thought about fire abstractly rather than taking a mental inventory of the burning flora and fauna in my home.

Finding these little community exchanges while scrolling through Daily Kos as a break from my wild mesmerism brought me some of my “good” moments this week, but most of it wasn’t something I wasn’t expecting. I searched Daily Kos because I was sure that, amid the drumming of horrible news, I would find upbeat stories and thoughtful conversations … and you didn’t disappoint.

The Carbonara Tale, or why I owe OneRedShoe a pot of delicious geoduck soup by Gemina13 (2007-81-17)

The twists and turns involved in making a special meal on a budget as a gift for your beloved end up being the pleasure, not the food itself. Almost everything that could go wrong went wrong, but the result was still a pleasure, even if it was not edible.

Bringing the Fight for Texas Voter Rights to the Gates, With the Staff of Democratic Legislators by Snowbored (2005-56-3?)

Hope Springs From Field PAC is a grassroots, door-to-door poll to raise awareness of the fact that Democrats care about our voters and are working to protect their rights, most recently in Texas. By notifying voters of their visits through robocalls, this team of pollsters found that they found more doors open and had more conversations.

Marijuana legalization in California has not worked as planned by The orchid (2005-185-?)

Contrary to intuition, large-scale illegal growers have flourished as a result of the legalization of cannabis in the state, from the Mojave Desert in the southeast to the Emerald Triangle in the northwest, creating more problems. “An important News Block is the reduction in sentences required by Proposition 64 and the relatively lax enforcement.”

How dangerous is COVID-19? A worst case analysis of Taiwan by Iron turtle (2020-386-2 +)

With less than 2% of the population vaccinated, the virus spread rapidly, providing a sobering view of how quickly the situation can change. This regular series on the coronavirus continues with a fascinating and detailed case study.

Essay: Unions and Business Reform by DrBobOpEd (2020-58-?)

This vision for corporate reform includes applying existing statutes to prevent situations like “Amazon’s brave new experiment to create a monopoly by trying to control as many supply chains as possible.” The reform includes not only the right of workers to organize, but also safeguards that can help prevent the continued escalation of inequality.

The Daily Bucket: Seagulls and Baby Seals Season by OceanDiver (2012-713-?)

It is the peak season for baby seals in the Salish Sea. With sea lions in their breeding grounds, seals take center stage, along with a multiplicity of seagulls.
