Here are a few more good news stories from the outbreak...

1.  Have you taken on any fun projects while you've been stuck at home?  A woodworker in Ohio made a squirrel feeder that looks like a bar.  It's got seven types of nuts "on tap," and the internet loves it.  So he patented the design, and now he's selling them for $200 a pop.

2.  A mom in Florida was reunited with her two-year-old daughter after five months apart.  She went to Panama with her grandmother to visit relatives in early March, and they got stuck there.  They finally got home earlier this month.

3.  A guy in Utah was getting annoyed that the motion sensor on his garage kept going off at night.  It turned out a little kid was riding his bike up into his driveway.  But instead of telling him to stop, he drew a mini racetrack in chalk.  So now more kids use it.

4.  A few years ago, a woman in Virginia started making hand-painted signs that say "Be Kind" and giving them out for free.  And with the help of volunteers, she's made 2,000 of them since March.

5.  A psychologist at Oxford says your friendships won't suffer long-term because of the crisis.  Your friend group might feel smaller right now . . . and we all might be a little more socially awkward when things first open up.  But he says most friendships will rebound.  And bonds between family members will stay just as strong as they were.
