Firstly, a video story about a man who can now talk for the first time in 27 years due to some modern technology.
Also from the UK, Brecon Beacons has been awarded Dark Sky status as you can see the stars at night without any interference from artificial lighting.
If that doesn't bring a glow to you heart, about the anonymous donation of gold bars to the Japanese fishing port of Ishinomaki, hit by the Tsunami in 2011.
Finally, just to prove that modern medicine doesn't know it all, a sugar remedy is being tested in hospitals to treat wounds.
Odd stories were a little thin on the ground last week, so I've only come across two. The first one is a now annual send up of the Oscars called the Toscars. They're awarded to fan-made parodies of films.
Finally, a slow burner. A 12 hour program on Norwegian television showing wood burning. It comes with commentary from experts on wood, as piles of the stuff burn.
And now, a bumper selection of pictures.
On that note, I bid you adieu and I'll see you next week. Have a great weekend.
