A Blog fan put this together for me:) Enjoy!

Laughter is one of the best antidotes to relieve everything from depression to the blahs, and even if you are already in a good mood, laughter can elevate that even higher, to euphoria! Medical studies have shown how laughter lowers stress and helps boost your immune system, so if only for medicinal reasons, enjoy a dose of laughter along with your vitamins.

If you haven’t already heard about Laughter Yoga, you can watch the video on You Tube with its’ founder Dr. Madan Kataria. Dr. Kataria has even taken his program to Indian prisons! If you have heard about it and want to try it, Hilary Kimblin (who has studied with Dr. Kataria) has a free monthly meeting in Beverly Hills that is so much fun you will want to do it every month.

Anyone can do it, you don’t need any special clothes or training and you will enjoy it more than almost any other exercise, simply because it is fun! If you enjoy Hilary’s Laughter Yoga, she also takes it on the road to companies, social events (parties), and schools, so take a 30 minute laughter break with her to share some laughter with other people.

There is something about being with a group of people that makes the laughter infectious and more intense. Human interactions have a way of multiplying the prevailing energy, so when that energy is fun and light, the upward spiraling effect is a delicious cocktail of bubbling laughter.

I have never wanted a dog; even as a kid, the joys of playing with and petting a dog were far outweighed by just the idea of having to pick up dog poop everyday. I enjoy other people’s dogs because I get all the benefits of a pet without any of the responsibilities. I now have a virtual puppy (which is about all I can handle), named Godiva and have been enjoying her so much, I wanted to share how I got her with anyone else who wants a virtual puppy.

By now nearly everyone has either a Facebook or Myspace account or both (I have both under the user name Elainetravels). My friend Darrin (a real friend, as in I actually have met and known him for more than 10 years) on Facebook introduced me to his virtual puppy, Dagwood, and asked me to adopt him, which in turn introduced me to the application Pokey created by Bonehead Labs. The application is slightly different on Facebook and Myspace, with the Facebook version offering more choices of puppies, and more general possibilities for play, so if you want more options, sign up for the Facebook version. Although the application takes awhile to load, once it is loaded, you can play smoothly (it has trouble loading on Firefox, but works fine on Safari or Explorer with the latest Flash Player).

In both applications, you can pet, play with (throw a frisbee or a tennis ball), feed, and decorate your pet’s environment. (I have made my puppy an indoor pet with a nice bed and cute doghouse.) You get credit (bones) for having your puppy catch what you throw, for feeding your puppy, and for petting or feeding other pups. You can also earn bones by buying products or doing an endless customer survey, but I prefer simply having the puppies go fetch bones.

I learned that even even with a virtual pet, you must give it water and food every day, or it will get very thirsty and hungry. I guess even a virtual pet requires some responsibility, but that’s ok because my virtual puppy is poop free, and that is only possible in a virtual world.

>One of my friends sent me to Youniverse and I had so much fun on the site that I had to share it here. The site uses something they call visual DNA to define what type of personality you are based on your choice of pictures. Instead of a written response to a question, you pick a picture that represents what you most closely feels matches your response. There are some blank/gray pictures in the choices so that if none of the pictures are close, you may chose the blank choice. I found the results very accurate and the whole process was fun; who would not like picking their favorite activities, movies, and art from an array of interesting photos? The results also show how your choices compared percentage wise to others.

The site seems to be a completely free social networking type site with a different twist for getting people to “meet” with similar or compatible styles, tastes, and personalities. You can try it as a guest here to see what it’s like, then go to my group, so that you can see my results.

Try it, you may like it!
