Feel good story of the day: bonuses

In the spirit of the holiday season, I’m going to try to locate and post a link to a story every day that I find that makes me smile.

Virginia Beach firm surprises workers with big bonuses

Helen Ulmer wasn’t expecting much more than free food and entertainment when she went to her company holiday party Saturday evening.

What she got was a check for $10,000 – about half of her yearly salary.

Can you imagine what getting a bonus for half of your yearly salary would do for you? I certainly can.
