Wonderful news from the BBC

Good morning/afternoon/evening/night. Thank you for tuning into the BBC News (Bassa’s Blogging Channel).

This is your good news correspondent, Bassa, reporting from Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia.

I have just read a wonderful good news story from For the Love of My Dogs blog..

This story tells us about Sony, a Schnauzer, who was dumped at a high-kill shelter.

When Deanna from For the Love of My Dogs blog heard about this she sprang into action!

Read this wonderful rescue story here:

Selling flowers since 1839!

The tall person took this picture of a man who sells flowers in our neighborhood in Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia. He said that it looks as if it has been hand colored. He told me that the first hand-colored photographs are attributed to Swiss painter and printmaker Johann Baptist Isenring who used a mixture of gum arabic and pigments to color daguerreotypes soon after their invention in 1839.

Wow, 1839! That man has been sitting there a long time!
