Service dogs see a show to learn how to behave in theater and other stuff happening out there

A roundup of information, inspiration and stuff to make you smile. Plus: COCONUT CREAM PIE.

The Peanut Butter Falcon is getting great reviews; the comedy-drama is about a man with Down syndrome who runs away from a residential home to become a wrestler. As my friend Amy Silverman, mom to a daughter with Down syndrome and author of My Heart Can't Even Believe It, says, "See it if you have someone with Down syndrome in your life and even more important, see it if you don't."

A Facebook friend recently made this Coconut Cream Pie, created by Sally's Baking Addiction, and said it was amazing. I mean.
