Labor Day

A day we honor working folks,
The teacher, trucker, clerk;
Just witness how they show their pride:
They don't come in for work.

Fun and Brain Freezes for Labor Day

Here's how you can make Labor Day more interesting:

Call all the darling little snotty-nosed nieces and nephews out into the back yard for homemade ice cream, then when the parents aren't looking have a contest to see who can finish theirs the soonest.

You're welcome.

Laughter Yoga is a Laugh!

I received this today from a high school classmate and wish I'd come up with the idea.
...Now (she) has got me interested in Laugh Yoga! Another of her activities, that spring chicken is always trying out new things. This Laugh Yoga starts out faking laughter and then all of a sudden it becomes real. I have both my local Community Center and our local Newspaper looking into this here in NYC.

You see, laughter expels the bad air from your lungs and replaces it with fresh air! In years past, I am told, people used to laugh at least 20 minutes a day; now, sadly, they are only laughing 5 minutes a day on average. I am practicing laughing; it is not hard. I also try to be funny all the time in order to make people laugh!!

Here's a link to a video about Laughter Yoga. -- Dalton Hammond

Ogling the Weather Channel

The best Weather Channel recruiters
Don't care about skills with computers.
Their requirements are just
To locate nice busts
So they do all their hiring at Hooter's.

Hummingbird Lady

This puts all of my hummingbird pictures to shame! This hummingbird lady lives in Pine, Louisiana. She had studied them daily and one morning put the cup from a feeder with water in it in her hand. They had gotten used to her standing by the feeder and came on over. She says in touching they are as light as a feather. Said if she had known her husband would take pictures she would have put on makeup !!

She lives in a Hummingbird fly zone. As they migrated, about 20 of them were in her yard. Just for a lark, she took the little red dish and filled it with sugar water and this is the result.
