January, a month that often seems like the longest on the calendar, is just about out of here. So it seemed appropriate to step back and have a little laugh at life – at least a smile. After all (as you’ll see in a just a sec), laughter may indeed be the best medicine. If we put a smile on your face leave a comment and let us know!
Laughter: Your Rx for Better Health
According to this piece on Highest Potential Self, a recent health study concluded that not laughing enough was one of three primary reasons people can’t cope in life. The late Norman Cousins, in his bestseller Anatomy of an Illness, attributed his recovery from degenerative spine disease to laughter. Thanks to @MelissaOnline (Melissa Stewart) for this grain of wisdom.

There’s apparently more than one way to hang on when you’re riding the NYC subway. Thanks to StarStruckNYC (Christopher Chance) for posting this pic from MediaTakeOut.com and then tweeting it for us to find.
Video of the Week
I remember this tune from the late Jim Croce, but I never heard the story of how the song came about. Sure, we could have found a funnier video, but maybe not with such a catchy tune to go along with it. Courtesy of @TraceTV (Tracy Ready) who describes himself as Director of Photography, Documentary Filmmaker, Writer, Lead Vocalist, Media Maestro, Blues Belter, Tex-Mex Freak, Beer Swiller. Sounds like a very full life!
