Well, in immediate terms, a highly local piece of "what went right" was that I slept in this morning (which is why this is up so late). So here's three items from my news feed about what went right.

Chocolate twist for children's medicines in bid to mask 'disgusting' taste of some drugs by Sarah Collard (ABC Western Australia)

"Researchers at the Perth Children's Hospital Foundation and the Centre of Optimisation of Medicine have teamed up to develop a chocolate-based pharmaceutical drug which masks the bitter taste of other drugs."

Summer rainfall in Western Australia breaks records amid mild top temperatures by Emma Wynne (ABC Radio Perth)

Where many cities in the Eastern states have broken records for temperature, on the West coast, we've broken the record for summer rainfall, receiving the highest amount since records began in 1900. We've also had the mildest summer since the summer of 2005 - 2006.

A perfect match? Tech-savvy youth meet tech-hungry seniors by Norman Hermant (Social affairs correspondent, ABC Australia)

A pilot version of a programme called "Tech, Tea and Tales" is underway at a JewishCare nursing home in Melbourne, offering lessons in using modern technology like iPads and smartphones to residents, and collecting their stories. As well as providing invaluable help for the residents, it also provides an important first job for the Tech and Story Helpers.

So there's my three for the day. If you've found something in your news feed about what went right (rather than what went wrong), why not put a link in the comments, and boost the signal.
