Go on - have a laugh now and then....

 Life's a serious affaire, but that shouldn't stop you having a good belly laugh now and then.
If you think that's not serious, you're wrong - laughing - it seems - uses over 200 minor muscles in our faces, thus laughing becomes a "complexion manager/treatment" free of charge for the ladies. It apparantly liberates all sorts of hormones and all sorts of other things - so it must be good for you - seriously......
Here's a little link to go see and have a laugh - It comes from "The postman's corner" - it's a "Yahoo" Group, you can Google search it, and sign up for the daily newsletter...Whilst doing the image research for this spot, I stumbled over's called "Michelangelo - The Punishment" and it seems a good starting point for a "good belly laugh"...

While discussing the upcoming Universal Health Care
Program with my friend the other day, I think we
have found the solution. I am sure you have heard
the ideas that if you're a senior you need to
suck it up and give up the idea that you need
any health care. A new hip? Unheard of. We
simply can't afford to take care of you anymore.
You don't need any medications for your high blood
pressure, diabetes, heart problems, etc. Let's take
care of the young people. After all, they will be
ruling the world very soon. So here is the solution.
When you turn 70, you get a gun and 4 bullets.
You are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 congressmen.
Of course, you will be sent to prison where you will
get 3 meals a day, a roof over your head and all the
health care you need! New teeth, great! Need
glasses, no problem. New hip, knee, kidney, lung,
heart? Well bring it on. And who will be paying for
all of this. The same government that just told
you that you are too old for health care. And, since you
are a prisoner, you don't have to pay any income tax.
And if we all do our part we can end up in the same
prison and have one heck of a social life.

We do hope you enjoy today's issue!
Martin aka the postman
