Welcome to the 137th Humormeister's Forum edition
I found out today that the largest category of people in society, using CBD oils, are seniors.
Either they are on to something, such as a higher level of relaxation, overcoming stress and anxiety.....or, it could be that they are trying to ease the aches and pains that seem to come uninvited as we age.
This is one of the reasons that I decided to add CBD oils to my website.

One minute laugh
A minister, a priest and a rabbi were discussing when life begins. "Those of my faith," the minister said, "believe that life starts when the heart begins to beat.
"We take a bit of a different view, " said the priest, "In that we believe life starts at the moment of conception."
"Well said the rabbi,"It's our belief that life starts when the kids move out and the dog dies."
Kids are funny
Shawn and his sister Joni are visiting Grandpa. Shawn walks over to Grandpa and says, "Grandpa, please make the frog noise."
Grandpa says,"No, go and play!" Shawn says to Joni," you go and tell Grandpa to make a frog noise," so Joni goes to Grandpa, "please Grandpa make a frog noise. Grandpa says," I just told your brother no, and I'm telling you the same , the answer is no!"
Joni again says, " please Grandpa make a frog noise." Grandpa is now starting to wonder why they keep asking for him to make a frog noise. So he says, "why do you want me to make a frog noise?"
Joni replies,"because mom said that when you croak, we can go to Disneyland."
Humor and laughter have been part of human culture for as long as we can go back in history.
The benefits of humor are even referred to in the bible - Book of Proverbs 17.22, where it states:"A cheerful heart does good like a medicine, but a broken heart makes you sick.
The ancient Greek physicians prescribed for their patients to visit the hall of comedians. Physicians would send their patients to the theater to be entertained as part of the healing process.
Early Native Americans had clowns who worked with Witch Doctors. They too realized the powerful effects of humor and laughter in healing. The 3rd most important person in the tribe was the clown.
Humans are the only living species that can laugh and generate humor. There are some animal lovers who claim they have seen their pets smile, however, actual laughter and the ability to create and enjoy humor are only evident in human beings.
During the course of the ages, humor and laughter were recognized for bringing joy and happiness;as therapy to speed recovery from surgery; as therapy and counselling of depressed people; as a cure for melancholy; release for excess stress and tension; treatment of the sick; and the regaining of emotional equilibrium.
People take themselves far too seriously with negative effects to their health and their relationships with partners, family, co-workers and fiends,

If you can't laugh - smile! If you can't smile - fake it until you make it!
If you loose your zest for laughter - you loose your zest for life!
