    β€œLaughter is the best medicine” – Origin, Meaning, Explanation and Importance
    On July 29, 2016 By LightHouse

    Introduction. The phrase β€˜laughter is the best medicine’ refers to the notion that thinking positively and laughing will help you to feel better. That might mean feeling better about something that was making you upset. Or, as some studies have suggested, it might be the case that laughter and positive thinking can help people to heal from illnesses.

    You know, I think there is more to this “defund the police” than just what it sounds like. I have heard suggestions across the country about private police. If that was done, they would not be going by the laws. And, of course, there is always the UN thugs.

  8. Here is a yummy cake for tonight. I think of it as wintergreen not peppermint though .It reminds me of those pink wintergreen patties covered in dark chocolate. I guess they don’t make them anymore. Luv wintergreen.

    What we had as part of our new year’s celebration was that i would make “layered drinks”. People were fascinated by them. It took a while to make each one, thereby reducing guzzling too much booze all at once, but people never minded. I think they were all waiting for me to mix them up by mistake! πŸ˜‰
    This an Irish Flag

    and this is a Butterball:

      Reminds me of an old professor who liked to teach trivial stuff mixed in with the approved material.
      One day he told us” if you ever want to drive a bartender nuts, order a ‘pousse-cafe’.”
      eleven liquers all carefully poured according to their specific gravities, for the layered effect. I never had the funds to try it
      Thanks GandC. Happy new year.

    I had an early dinner tonight and, believe it or not, I had the last bit of my Christmas rib roast along with baked potato w/sour cream and broccoli. It was delicious! I think I will take out a pound of shrimp from the freezer for scampi with linguine for tomorrow’s dinner.

    Okay, this is really getting squirrelly. When I came back on Stella’s, it said I had 40+ notifications. When I clicked on it, all the new posts that had already been there, and now was gone, came back. πŸ™„ This is sooooo weird.

    Something weird is going on, I tell ya. It’s kinda like the whole “when H*ll freezes over” thing. The last time we saw wintery precipitation was 2007. We have a couple inches of snow in Central Texas here at Rancho el Gordito, so I’m thinking good thoughts for our Commander-In-Chief for 2021, because I don’t know how much weirder it could get after 2020. Happy New Year, and blessings to all y’all.
