It’s Good News Week, da de da de da!
Well no actually not in THIS song – BUT – taking a trip around the blogosphere, I’ve realised – der! – that Captain Savage and me are WAY behind when it comes to the pursuit of Good Deeds There are some amazing – and hilarious – things going on out there in the world of Karma. To name but a few
A chocolate shop where you buy chocolates not with money but with Good Deeds??? What a fantastic idea! (Do they pay the people they rent the space off with Good Deeds though?) ANYWAY it’s priceless. Literally.
We probably all know Gulf States have really tricky immigration laws – and if you don’t fulfil your visa requirements, they’re just as likely to beat you up as they are to deport you.

The second video has got to be the happiest youtube thing you’ve ever seen. Well done guys but remember not to drop your sweet wrappers!
This site invites cold, hard-edged Londoners to knit blankets for sad little abused puppy dogs at the iconic Battersea Dogs Home (wasn’t that where Paddington Bear was from)? And they do! Here is a picture of a little doggy sitting on its knitted blanket. Aww.
AND FINALLY – DRUM ROLL
This lady does a Good Deed every week – and rewards herself with a martini. I haven’t been so inspired since…I finished a whole bottle of Baileys Irish Cream by myself on my 21st birthday! Since I don’t drink any more maybe I’d rather reward myself now with sex or maybe cooking chocolate, but still…
