Hi everyone,

Some elderly people have a great sense of humour. She certainly cheered the fireman up judging by the smile on his face. It made me smile too when I looked at his happy face. 

I'snt it strange how disasters always seem to bring out the best in most people. I have seen it time after time and often from people you wouldnt normally expect help from, Brian

We can only guess what she said to make him laugh, but I bet it was something naughty!  Lovely picture, thanks Brian.

Hi folks,

As we approach Christmas and are thinking of gift we can give each other, what greater gift could this young boy and his parent have been given than the gift of sight, Brian

This means so much more than the commercialism that the festive season seems to bring. Great story and  truly heartwarming. Jules

Hope they all recover from the ordeal as well as any humans caught up in the incident. One very brave pussycat. Jules

Look at her poor face, bless her, but her babies all look unscathed thanks to mum.   Marvellous.  Fingers crossed they will all be okay.

Hi Folks,

Thanks Hazel and Jules.

Shannon Strang's mum  heard people clapping on the beach, then her daughter came up to her and said: ‘Mum, I just saved a wee lady from drowning. A heroic 12-year-old holiday hero turned down her offer of a €5 reward after saving the life of a drowning pensioner.

Shannon Strang was swimming with her rubber ring in Majorca when she saw the old lady in trouble in deep water with waves crashing over her head. Despite being frightened of the waves and going out of her depth, she swam out to the pensioner, took off her ring and put it over the lady’s head.

Then she pushed her back to shore, reports the Daily Record. Shannon was swimming in her rubber ring when she saw an elderly lady in trouble. Shannon said: “I was scared but I had to help her. I felt really brave afterwards. “The lady was very grateful and offered me money but I said I didn’t need it.”

Shannon held the lady's head up and helped her back to shore. Shannon, of Falkirk, saved the lady at the resort of Alcudia last Wednesday while on holiday with her parents, brother and sister. Mum Amanda, 39, said: “She was out of her depth and worried about the waves but she got to the shallows and helped the woman out. “I heard people clapping on the beach. Then Shannon came up to me and said, ‘Mum, I just saved a wee lady from drowning.’ “She said she didn’t need the five euros. All that mattered was that the woman was safe.” Shannon and Amanda hope her example will encourage more kids to learn to swim. “I’m glad I had my swimming skills,” the youngster said. “You never know when you might need them.”

Well done young lady, Brian

Hi folks,

here is a lovely strory I came across about a homeless person adopting an abandoned dog. Looks like they get a lot of comfort from each other, Brian.

A thought provoking picture. Wonderful companionship and many of the beggars round our streets seem to keep dogs. I would imagine they are putting the dogs before their own welfare but I sadly stopped giving in the street when seeing how my money got spent as soon as I had walked on. Jules
