Among all the approaches to healing and self-healing, there is an important place for humor, laughter, cheerfulness, and mirth. In the Orient, laughing clubs give people an opportunity to benefit from the physiological effects of laughter, and in the west, we have stories of people such as Norman Cousins. Norman in part resolved a serious illness by watching funny movies and holding a positive attitude. Thus I am including on my website at least this small attempt at providing some humor, to remind us not to take everything so seriously all the time and to look for what is funny wherever we can find it.
For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.
Eat and drink what you like.
Speaking English is apparently what kills you.
Once again, the Washington Post has published its yearly contest in which readers are asked to supply alternate meanings for various words. And the winners are...

A day without sunshine is like night.
Age doesn't always bring wisdom, sometimes age comes alone.
Life not only begins at 40, it begins to show.
He who laughs last, thinks slowest.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some don't have film.
Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.
Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say may be misquoted, then used against you.
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
It's hard to understand how a cemetery raised its burial cost and blamed it on the cost of living.
Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how it remains so popular?
A magician worked on a cruise ship in the Caribbean. The audience was different each week, so the magician allowed himself to do the same tricks over and over again.
There was only one problem: the captain's parrot saw the shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, the parrot started shouting in the middle of the show, "Look, it's not the same hat!" or "He's hiding the flowers under the table!" and "Hey, why are all those cards the ace of spades?"
The magician was furious but couldn't do anything. It was, after all, the captain's parrot.
One day the ship had an accident and sank. The magician found himself on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot.
They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word.
This went on for a day, then another.
Finally the parrot couldn't hold back any longer and squalked, "OK, I give up? What'd you do with the ship?"
A man rushed into the doctor's office and shouted, "Doctor! I think I'm shrinking!"
The doctor calmly responded, "Now, calm down. Be a little patient."

Martha Stewart doesn't live here!
I clean house every other day. Today is the other day!
So this isn't Home Sweet Home. Adjust!
Ring bell for Maid Service. If no answer, do it yourself!
If you write in the dust, please don't date it!
If you don't like my standards of cooking -- lower your standards.
Help keep the kitchen clean. Eat out.
A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen, and this kitchen is delirious.
If we are what we eat, then I'm easy, fast, and cheap.
My next house will have no kitchen --- just vending machines.
A recent college graduate took a new job in a hilly Eastern city and began commuting each day to work through a tiring array of tunnels, bridges and traffic jams. Thinking it would make the trip more bearable, he invited several coworkers to share the ride. However, the commute actually got more stressful, especially the trips through the tunnels. He consulted the company doctor.
"Doc," the frustrated commuter complained, "I'm fine on the bridges, in the traffic, in the day and at night, and even when Joe forgets to bathe all week. But now, when I get in the tunnels with those four other guys crowded into the car, I get anxious and dizzy, and I feel like I'm going to explode."
Without further analysis, the doctor announced he had diagnosed the ailment.
"What is it, Doc? Am I going insane?"
"No, no, no, my boy. You have something that is becoming more and more common."
"Tell me! What is it?"
"You have what is known as Carpool Tunnel Syndrome."
Lawyer: Did you say the plaintiff was shot in the woods?
Doctor: No, I said he was shot in the lumbar region.
Doesn't it seem that more and more physicians are running their practices like an assembly line?
Here's what happened to Buford:
Buford walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Buford said, Shingles. So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat.
Fifteen minutes later a nurse's aid came out and asked Buford what he had.
Buford said, Shingles. So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Buford to wait in the examining room.
A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Buford what he had.
Buford said, Shingles. So she gave Buford a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, told Buford to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor.
An hour later the doctor came in and asked Buford what he had.
Buford said, Shingles.
The doctor asked, Where?
Buford said, 'Outside on the truck. Where do you want them?
A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, looking at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out of the Bible and he picked it up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that has been pressed in between the pages.
"Momma, look what I found," the boy called out.
"What have you got there, dear?" his mother asked.
With astonishment in the young boy's voice he answered, "It's Adam's suit!!"

Last year I upgraded *Girlfriend 1.0* to *Wife 1.0* and noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources.
No mention of this phenomenon was included in the product brochure.
In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization where it monitors all other system activity.
Applications such as Poker-Night 2.1 and Beer-Bash 2.5 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected.
I can not seem to purge Wife 1.0 from my system.
I am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 1.0 but un-install does not work on this program.
Can you help me?
This is a very common problem men complain about but is mostly due to a primary misconception.
Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 1.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a "UTILITIES and ENTERTAINMENT" program.
Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its creator to run everything.
WARNING! DO NOT try to un-install, delete or purge the program from the system once installed.
Trying to un-install Wife 1.0 can be disastrous!
Doing so may destroy your hard and/or floppy drive. Trying to un-install or remove Wife 1.0 will also destroy valuable system *resources*.
You can not go back to Girlfriend 1.0 because Wife 1.0 is not designed to do this.
Some have tried to install Girlfriend 2.0 or Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than the original system.
Look in your manual under Warnings - + Alimony/Child Support
Others have tried to run Girlfriend 1.0 in the background, while Wife 1.0 is running, but eventually Wife 1.0 detects Girlfriend 1.0 and a system conflict occurs.
This usually leads to a non-recoverable system crash.
Some users have tried to download similar products such as *Fling.exe* or *OneNiteStand.exe*. Often these systems have become infected with a fatal virus.
I recommend you keep Wife 1.0 and just deal with the situation.
Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Protection Faults (GPF's).
You must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur.
The best course of action will be to push the *Apologize Button* on your computer and then hit the *Reset Button* as soon as lock-up occurs.
System will run smooth as long as you take the blame for all GPF's. Wife 1.0 is a great program but is normally very high maintenance.
Suggestions for improved operation of Wife 1.0
+ Monthly use of utilities such as TLC.exe and FTD.exe
+ Frequently download the *Communicator 7.4* LiveUpdate
Hope this helps...
