Welcome to Krazy Kats - a friendly informal discussion forum: Talk about anything from birth to death - and beyond!

The Video of the Week now showing on Light After Life forum is: 'HUMAN'
I hope everyone is safe from the rages of Ophelia. Not forgetting the poor frightened animals too. xx
Hearing all the stories here. 3 people have died so far in Ireland with trees hitting cars. Can't for the life of me understand why anyone would venture out in a car in a hurricane!!!
A really strange golden hue in the atmosphere here in London. And a weird but slightly familiar smell in the air - reminds me of just before a sandstorm in Libya.

cat  Such a shame that such a natural human condition has to be pinned down to an annual one-week commercial event!
Random Acts of Kindness week (#RAKWeek2017), Feb 12-18, is an annual opportunity to unite through kindness. Formally recognized in 1995, this seven-day celebration demonstrates that kindness is contagious. It all starts with one act – one smile, one coffee for a stranger, one favor for a friend. It’s an opportunity for participants to leave the world better than they found it and inspire others to do the same.

I saw a news headline yesterday (somewhere .... can't remember where I saw it now) about a cancer department in a hospital in Manchester, where some kind anonymous person had filled a container full of goody treats, sweets, sandwiches, vouchers, etc - with a notice attached for anyone who came across it to just help themselves to a treat and put a smile on their face, if only for just a short while.  Apparently, everyone throughout that day, patients and hospital staff alike, were going around with big beaming smiles all day.  No-one had any idea who the anonymous donor was.  
Reading that article now, it looks as though it was done purely because it was within that 'RAK week' (which we are still in now) - but doesn't it just show how effective and beneficial overall this type of random act can be.
