A soldier returning home from Afghanistan after nine months away decided to dress up as a Power Ranger to surprise his two young boys.
Army SFC Daryl Chandler staged the surprise on Saturday, after he and his wife Cathi reunited earlier in the day at the airport in Stockbridge, Georgia.
Their sons Cole, 7, and Idan, 3, thought they won a contest to earn a visit from the superhero, until the masked man removed his costume and the boys realized their father had come home.
Carlos and Barbara only wanted a little romance on Valentine's Day. So they drove to San Fransisco and took a pre-dinner trip to the Golden Gate Bridge. But when they pulled in, they spotted a black camera bag and no owner showed up. So they went to the police and it turns out there was $11,000 in the bag along with credit cards the police used to track down the owner.
It belonged to a tourist from China who was so relieved to hear the bag with missing money was found. He was carrying cash for several families who were traveling together and forgot the bag after they posed for a picture. He was so grateful that kind-hearted Americans were so honest before he went back home to China.
Last week, a woman in Kansas left more than a little change behind when she dropped a donation in a homeless man’s cup.
Sarah Darling accidentally dropped her engagement ring in with the change and homeless man, whose name is Billy Ray Harris, didn’t notice till the end of the day when he packed up to leave his spot. He had the ring appraised and discovered it was a platinum and diamond ring worth $4,000. He said the appraiser was willing to give him cash on the spot in exchange for the ring...and he considered it but said his grandfather raised him to be honest and he knew in his heart he couldn’t take the money.
Sarah returned the next day to Harris’ usual spot and he was there waiting to give her her ring.
When Bert Jacobson was 13 years old, he took a trip out east and just had to write home about it. So he sent his mother a postcard from the Old Country Store Museum in Hereford, Pennsylvania. In 1967.
It showed up in her post office box this past Friday--46 years later.The inky postmark from a generation ago is still clearly visible, with wavy lines running over the 4-cent Lincoln stamp. Jacobson's message to his mom is written in careful script on the back. Jacobson said he has no idea where the postcard spent the past four and a half decades. :)

Four of the world's most famous superheroes appeared at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Spiderman, Batman, Captain America and Superman's mission for the day was to cheer up the children battling illnesses as they did their window cleaning rounds. Apparently, all the guys had tears of joy in their eyes behind the costumes—they said it was very touching and overwhelming how excited the children were. The high-rise washers positioned their safety harnesses around the costumes before unfurling their ropes from the 12th floor and climbing along the walls. Dozens of hospitalised youngsters pointed in amazement as they came into view and saluted to them before the cleaning jobs began.
