What Went Right - 10 APR 2017
Sorry this is late again today - I'm still down with whichever lurgi was making my life a misery yesterday, so I've been spending a lot of time sleeping. Hopefully I'll be back to what passes for normal by tomorrow. In the meantime, have three articles about what went right from my news feeds.

Melbourne's Burke and Wills statue removed from display to make way for Metro Rail by James Hancock (ABC Victoria)
The statue of Burke and Wills which was at the corner of Collins and Swanston streets in Melbourne has been moved to make way for construction work on the Metro Rail project. This is the fifth time the monument has been relocated since it was presented to the City by sculptor Charles Summers in 1865.
So there's my three stories about "what went right". If you've found a story about what went right in your news feeds, why not share a link in the comments, and boost the signal?
