|"Smile" is a song based on an instrumental theme used in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music, while John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics and title in 1954. In the lyrics, based on lines and themes from the film, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. "Smile" has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin's film...|

Top 10 Reasons to Smile
By Mark Stibich, Ph.D., About.com Guide
Updated February 04, 2010
Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better. Smile to improve your health, your stress level, and your attractiveness. Smiling is just one fun way to live longer read about the others and try as many as you can.
1. Smiling Makes Us Attractive
We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away -- but a smile draws them in (avoid these smile aging habits to keep your smile looking great).
2. Smiling Changes Our MoodNext time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There's a good chance you mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.
3. Smiling Is ContagiousWhen someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.
4. Smiling Relieves StressStress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.
5. Smiling Boosts Your Immune SystemSmiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly because you are more relaxed. Prevent the flu and colds by smiling.
6. Smiling Lowers Your Blood PressureWhen you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference?
7. Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and SerotoninStudies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.
8. Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look YoungerThe muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Don't go for a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better.
9. Smiling Makes You Seem SuccessfulSmiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react to you differently.
10. Smiling Helps You Stay PositiveTry this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that "Life is Good!" Stay away from depression, stress and worry by smiling.

From Bobby Hatten (NNHS / Ferguson HS - '65) of VA - 09/23/15 and 09/24/15 (Story Continued from 09/23/15):
|Thank you, Carol –
the sweetness of your reply tells me you are still that same
girl I had a crush on in the fifth grade ! I’m envious of
the 18 grandchildren but I hope they don’t come to visit at
the same time !
I have a picture at
home in an old album of Martha Smith and that pony tail that
I took on my brownie camera – I will try to find it and send
it – how can you forget all of us boys fighting over who
would buy that girl’s ice cream - thanks for taking your
time to reply, I will look forward to hearing from Pam and
learning Martha’s whereabouts.
I'm reeling over
your disclosure that you had a crush on me in fifth grade
(how is it I never heard that story??)!
|This is Mrs. Gladys Curry's 4th grade - you are in the center, Martha Smith on the far left, Pam Smith in the center bottom, Russell Collins is far left, Bobby Sears is beside Martha, Chippy Clark to your right, Ronnie Sanders to your left, Don Ailsworth is on Pam 's left, Carla Fine and Bridget Whitt on lower far right, Jeannie Collier is to the left of Don, the Dutch boy (name escapes me this morning, Dave something) is behind and left of Carla, Lee Rawls is on the ground al la Julius Caesar - you will probably remember more - I am not in it because I am taking the picture.|

...Treasures galore! Thank you so much!
from Holland was Dave Sanders. He played the violin and sat
next to me in band. As I played flute we could share the
same music as it was written in the same key. His parents
were concentration camp survivors. His mother had long thick
glossy black hair which she always wore coiled up at the
nape of her neck. She and Mr. Sanders used to come stand
outside Mrs. Doris Hutton's music room while we practiced.
They never spoke, just watched, as survivor parents did when
they beheld the miracle that was their offspring. It touched
me deeply even as a young child.

If this is the case, then these 21 facts will give your mind a good workout. (Plus, you can impress others with this exotic knowledge.)
WOWZERS! Thanks, Dools!
|BONUS CROCHET PATTERN (Sorry; not theme-related):|

|BONUS RECIPES (Sorry; not theme-related):|
Old Fashioned Salisbury Steak - "Served with mashed potatoes and gravy, there's nothing that says comfort food and home cooking like a delicious Salisbury steak recipe. Coming from Tina at Mommy's Kitchen, Old Fashioned Salisbury Steak is just like the kind Ma used to make. The meat is drenched in a French onion soup/brown gravy mixture, which is delicious. Gather the family around the table and enjoy a tasty, home-cooked meal this week."
Slow Cooker Beef Dumpling Soup - "Slow cooker soups are comforting dinners. Slow Cooker Beef Dumpling Soup is an easy slow cooker soup recipe that serves six people. There's a little chopping involved at the beginning, and then you just let it cook. Though you can eat this any time of year, it's especially comforting in the colder months. Cooking the beef in a slow cooker makes it nice and tender. If you cook it longer it, it will be more tender, so I recommend cooking it for six hours instead of four. That's just personal preference. Perhaps the best part of this soup is the dumplings. They're really easy to make. You just mix together Bisquick, parsley, and milk. That's it! Once that dough is formed, just plop spoonfuls on top of the soup in the last half hour and let it finish cooking. When it's done, you'll have a delicious soup fit for the whole family."
at a job interview was asked a tough question to which he mumbled an
inaudible answer. The interviewer said "Come again?"
The candidate got up, collected his file, went out of the room and came back again.

Smile, though your heart is aching,
Smile, even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky -
You'll get by.
If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That's the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.
