Laugh it up

"Laugh Therapy," pioneered by Norman Cousins, has turned out to have real substance. Research has discovered that laughter and joy boost immune functions, especially the production of the natural killer cells that help defend the body from illness and cancer.

Laughter also increases the release of endorphins - compounds that give you a sense of well-being - in your brain. Without a doubt, joyful people live longer and have healthier lives; so read your favorite comics, watch your favorite comedies, and laugh it up!

The "Can Monster" was made by a guy who lives in my home town. He says he hates all the cans that are constantly in place here. As a joke he wielded together this creature and put him by the road.

The can producing company asked if they could buy it from him. He agreed and they filled the can-man with concrete and he now sits out front of their office!!!

It was just another day in paradise
Took a walk through ‘Face book’
My latest hangout for distraction
Spoke to a friend about insecurities
His/mine, what difference - none
Sent ruby red hearts and lots of flowers
Karma called and I went off to find
A gift for “G”… my 6:15am karma
Over to my little farm in the Ville
Where someone had sent me sheep
Big puffy balls of wool when they’re ready
Read this link, add this site
Leave the town, but send a round
Doing lunch away from here

Lunch break found me at the local
Home-made burger stand near my home
A friendly outing with a friendly friend

Back to paradise I go to see
Who’s playing videos?
Tori sings, Bon Jovi in jeans
Then it’s time for opinions
Do we, don’t you, can we, have you?
Butterflies on gossamer wings
Happy hugs and best friends ever
Read this note or make your own
Chocolate trips, green patch kids
The second Farm is bigger
Save some time to inbox mail
Write on walls, smiles to all
Off to watch my TV shows
Then Yahoo needs attention
