Sir Froggie's Ponderings

With Jeanette M. Pintar

Current SFPNN Featured Columns and Authors


What Is SFPNN?

SFPNN, Sir Froggie's Positive News Network, is a FREE good news daily e-mail letter, sent out Monday through Friday. We think of it as a "Spiritual Vitamin" because it gives you something positive each day to boost your spirits!

What Content Will I find in PNN?

"All Good Things!" as my Oma would say.  SFPNN originated in 1998 with the challenge to find at least one good thing a day to counteract the constant bombardment of negative media. As our network of positive people grows and evolves, so does our newsletter's content.

We want to change the way you think about the news!  According to the Oxford Dictionary and Thesaurus, news is newly received or noteworthy information. SFPNN's news includes stories that make you feel good; along with columns, advice and commentary from our featured authors who share their approach to making our world a more positive place. In addition, we may provide poems, jokes, inspirational writing pieces, meditations or quotations from "every-day" or famous people; basically anything that makes you feel good about your Self, life, and the world we live in. 

Our newsletter is a collaborative volunteer effort from SFPNN's readers, featured columnists and editor. Other news you'll find in SFPNN - and which we hope you'll contribute to our network - is made up of special events in our readers� lives such birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, special get-togethers, promotions, personal success stories and accomplishments, the pursuit of dreams,  and progress in reaching goals.  We aim to touch your Spirit and to help you soar. Everyone is welcomed to contribute.

Share your good news with us by e-mailing 

In the words of Gandhi, "Be the change you want to see in the world."

The Christmas Tree Chronicles of Tom R. oh!
