From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smile_%28Charlie_Chaplin_song%29

"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.[1] 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...

The song, originally sung by Nat King Cole, charted in 1954...

Top 10 Reasons to Smile

By , 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 Mood

Next 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 Contagious

When 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 Stress

Stress 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 System

Smiling 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 Pressure

When 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 Serotonin

Studies 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 Younger

The 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 Successful

Smiling 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 Positive

Try 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.

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."

Just Like Paula Deen's Old Fashioned Meatloaf - "Meatloaf is old-fashioned comfort food at its finest. This recipe for Just Like Paula Deen's Old Fashioned Meatloaf is a classic meatloaf recipe that turns out moist and full of flavor. The simple glaze is made of ketchup, brown sugar and mustard, and the meatloaf is a combination of simple, budget-friendly ingredients. This delicious old-fashioned recipe comes together in minutes with just three easy steps! An easy meatloaf recipe like this should be on every home cook's menu rotation."

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."

Music by Charlie Chaplin (16 Apr 1889 – 25 Dec 1977), 1936

Words by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons (07 Jan 1910 - 22 Dec 1987), 1954

Recorded by Nat King Cole (17 Mar 1917 – 15 Feb 1965), 1954


 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
For you.

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.
