Another three articles from my mainstream media feeds about "what went right" rather than "what went wrong".

Vintage tractor collection helps keep retired farmer mentally fit by Tyne Logan (ABC Rural, Western Australia)

Mal Beeck of Katanning, Western Australia, has the unusual hobby of collecting and restoring vintage tractors. He says it keeps him mentally healthy during his retirement.

How the Sound of Music’s von Trapp family ended up teaching music in PNG by Jo Chandler (Earshot, ABC Australia)

This one is a deliberate "not bad news" story written by a journalist who has been doing stories about Papua New Guinea for a few years, and wanted to share some of the good things about the region as well as all the "newsworthy" stuff. So she's written about the history of the choir on Fergusson Island, in Milne Bay.

AFL Women's: 'Inspiring' opening round in the words of those who matter by ABC Grandstand (uncredited)

This article is a series of short interviews regarding the first round of the AFLW competition. Most of the interviews are with players, who appear to be overwhelmingly happy they're now able to play this sport on a semi-professional basis; the final interview is with a fan and amateur footballer.

So, there's the three for today. If you've found stories about "what went right" in your media feeds, why not share them in the comments?
