Geez Baron! Your rules are quite difficult to follow. Can we make a proposition? To have another law easier to follow by fellow citizens? Cause I'm not sure it's a easy/simple rule to follow.

But that's just an opinion, Baron sir.

Twitch!

Well my dear hunnynuts [he he he], proposing to me now eh? Whatever will Mrs Baron say? tsk tsk.

So which part of the most difficult and very strict regime guidelines did you not understand sweet one? Eh? Eh? Come on, you're among friends here haaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaa

                      

I have to be taskmaster here or else it will all get out of hand, that's why we must have rules, see, logic really he he

There's Sunshine In A Smile

by Helen Steiner Rice

Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
Laughter and pleasure, teardrops and rain.

All days can't be bright but it's certainly true,
There was never a cloud the sun didn't shine through.

And you'll find when you smile your day will be brighter
And all your burdens will seem so much lighter.

For each time you smile you will find it's true
Somebody, somewhere, will
smile back at you.

And nothing on earth can make life more worthwhile
Than the sunshine and warmth of a beautiful
smile!

Good morning.....everyone...

How much do you spend on cosmetics?....allot no doubt.

Well here's the cheapest way to improve your looks......................SMILE..

Read the following medication before an improvement will take place:

A woman walked into the kitchen to find her husband stalking around with a fly swatter, "What are you doing she asks"

"Hunting flies" was his response.

"Oh, killing any?" she asked

"Yep, 3 males and 2 females" was the reply.

Intrigued by this  she says"How can you tell"

"Well", he said "3 were on the beer can, and 2 were on the phone"

............well there you have it...did it work?

I bet it did.

Thanks for joining us

I'M SMILING. Thank you, Ron, for the invitation (OK, I'll enter myself properly in the Introductions) - Just wanted to tell a true story (yes, from Nepal, sorry, that sort of dominates things):

Some years ago, when I was here as a researcher and the going vis-a-vis the Nepali bureaucracy was tough, it was easy to get depressed. (Would I really have to give it all up and return to Norway? after all, I'd given up my job there...)And then I discovered a simple solution:

Walking down the street (in Kathmandu, where I was struggling with the bureaucrats) I'd just catch the eye of the first person in my vicinty, and SMILE. You won't believe the fantastically warm, vibrant smiles of spontaneous friendship and fellow-feeling that invariably came in return.

(And to those who wonder why I didn't use that strategy on the bureaucrats: Oh,  I did. They were always polite and even friendly, getting out the tea as soon as they saw me coming. But rules were rules...)

Thank you Susila

"Walking down the street (in Kathmandu, where I was struggling with the bureaucrats) I'd just catch the eye of the first person in my vicinty, and SMILE. You won't believe the fantastically warm, vibrant smiles of spontaneous friendship and fellow-feeling that invariably came in return."

Never a truer word spoken, sums up reasons why the premise of this group was originally born.

[Just joining us here?] Smiling works! Don't believe us, try it out tomorrow, no, do it today.... Susila has first hand evidence, thanks again Susila .

I like the bit "getting out the tea as soon as they see you coming..." that's me to a tee[a] he he" and my wife. We're both of Northern English descent and it's a fact, in Britain, Northerners are usually more friendly than those in the South but I thinks it's more about attitude than anything else. I was born and bred in the South [just made in the north he he] but we always have time for people, even those whose misery is contagious, we have the antidote, SMILING;

Quick joke for you all
9 years ago

Gorilla walks into a bar and orders a beer.

The bartender, figuring the gorilla won't know the difference, says "that'll be 10 bucks."

Gorilla grumbles a bit and throws a $10.00 bill on the bar.

Bartender says "you know, we don't get many talking gorillas in here."

Gorilla says "I guess not at 10 bucks a beer."

A SMILE

It cost nothing, but creates much.

It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those who give.

It happens in a flash and the memory of it lasts forever.

None are so rich they can get along without it and none so poor but are richer for its benefits.

It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business, and is the countersign of friends.

It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and nature's best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away!

If someone is to tired to give you a smile, leave one of yours.

For, nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none to give.

SMILING

 
Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu.
When someone smiled at me today
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner,
and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized,
I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile,
then I realized its worth.
A single smile just like mine,
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!

I have read about how frowning takes more muscles than smiling.  What that means to me is that it's good to do high reps on smiles, and low reps on frowns.

Geez Ron,   I thought this group was going to be free-spirited without all these rules and stuff.   Does grinning count?  What about like a Mona-Lisa-kinda smile but not?     What if our smile turns into laughter?? 

I mean come on.....that's why I hate rules!  They are so ambiguos.  Great, now I'll be awake all night analyzing this! 

What about that fake "cheese" smile folks make for pictures?? What if we are so happy we cry??   Could you be a little more specific here?? I'm not sure I fully understand the rules.

Thank you so much for the invite Ron.  So often, in the past, I wore a frown. Today I love to smile. Smiling makes me feel better, when things aren't going so well.  Being able to share a smile, makes me smile even more.  I promise to do my absolute best to follow the "group rules."  If I mess up once in a while, I'll just sit back & laugh.  I pray that God will bless you for starting up a group that benefits each & every person that joins.

Thanks,
