Only in recent years has the medical profession discovered the almost miraculous healing power of laughter. The discovery wasn't made my a doctor or medical researcher either, it was made a patient who just couldn't accept the doctor's prognosis that he had only a few months to live. The patient's will to live was so strong that he decieded to take the responsibility of healing into his own hands. He designed a program which required the daily use of positive emotions. Among them were faith, love, hope and laughter

After his remarkable recovery, the patiend continued to study the effects of positive emotion on the human system

Here is the joke of the day for June 30, 2010
A man realized that he needed to purchase a hearing aid, but he felt unwilling to spend much money. "How much do they run?", he asked the clerk.
That depends says the salesman. They run anywhere from $2.00 to $2,000.00.
"Let's see the $2.00 model"
The clerk put the device around the man's neck. "You just stick this button in your ear and run this string down to your pocket," he instructed.
"How does it work" the customer asked
"For $2.00, it doesn't work", the salesman replied. "But people talk louder after seeing the string."
Laugh your self healthy. Laugh everyday Only takes a moment
Have a great evening all
