    Be careful, though. You don't want to leave real Easter eggs for future owners to find. There's a smell.

    My wife used to work with Koko the sign language gorilla 25 years ago. Her main job was working with Ndume a male that they got from the Cincinnati zoo who was a problem gorilla and not a good zoo animal, the Gorilla Foundation hoped he would mate with Koko.

    But it never happened, when Koko died a few years ago the zoo demanded (and got) Ndume back.

    Today she was in Cincinnati and got to see him with his current keeper behind the scenes, He recognized her and smiled and then acted playful like he did when she spent her days with him.

    Pretty awesome in my book

    A teen buys repossessed storage units at auction, then gives the contents back to the original owners

    Shane Jones was looking to earn a little extra cash last summer when he stumbled upon YouTube videos explaining how to make money in a way he didn't know existed: buying the contents of repossessed storage units.

    When renters stop paying the monthly fee, everything inside a storage unit can be put up for auction.

    The videos explained how to bid online for the contents, sight unseen. Shane thought it would be like a treasure hunt of sorts.
    Shane was surprised when he won, he said, but when he went to his newly acquired unit, he realized right away that he shouldn't keep the items.

    As he sorted through the household goods, stuffed animals and personal mementos, he remembers feeling sad - especially when he found documents belonging to the original owner.
    Shane didn't expect that anyone would find out about his new pastime, but then word got out in late April at South Kingstown High School, where he attends. School district officials posted about his generosity on Facebook and local television stations began calling.

    "We're delighted to see one of our students doing such a wonderful thing," said South Kingstown Principal Chip McGair.

    A Checkout Line Where Slower is Better: Supermarkets Open ‘Chat Checkouts’ to Combat Loneliness Among Elderly

    https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/a-ch...rmarket-jumbo/

    1.3 million people in the Netherlands are older than 75 years—and one large supermarket chain is making sure they’re not getting too lonely in their elder years.

    The Dutch government with its campaign, ‘One Against Loneliness’, has galvanized organizations, towns, companies, and individuals to find solutions. The grocer giant, Jumbo, is doing their part with its innovative chatty check outs.

    The idea for the ‘Kletskassa’, which translates to ‘chat checkout’, originated more than two years ago—and in the summer of 2019 the first Kletskassa was opened in Vlijmen in Brabant.This resulted in many positive reactions from customers—and now Jumbo is expanding the initiative further: By this time next year, there will be chat checkouts in 200 stores across the country where people can go for a conversation. When choosing the stores, areas where loneliness is a major factor are carefully considered.

    Colette Cloosterman-van Eerd, CCO of Jumbo and the driving force behind the National Coalition against Loneliness, is closely involved in the initiative. She says, “Many people, especially the elderly, sometimes feel lonely. As a family business and supermarket chain, we are at the heart of society.”
