My latest smile came from watching Violet in the snow - you would never think she was 10 years old with an arthritic back end (no defined hip joints) when she is out there chasing flakes!

One of the anchor reporters from our local FOX affiliate does a weekly segment called "Real People, Real Stories". Each week there is a sweet human-interest interview and story about and everyday person who is extraordinary in their own way. This week's story is about a young man who is blind, autistic...and a musical savant. If you want to see a real feel-good story the link is here: Video Landing Page - Boston News, Weather, Sports | FOX 25 | MyFoxBoston

That link probably takes you to the most recent video. If you don't get the Real People video just search for Real People, Real Stories: Blind, Autistic, Musical Savant

I was peeling the foil off my Dove Dark Chocolate and got the fortune: "Express what's in your heart."

So I hollered at Shrek and let him read the fortune, then I used a lancet and got a drop of blood from my finger...he said it was a terrible pun...

I just realized that today it has been 40 years since I moved to Canada.

So, how is it working out for you so far? Think you will stay?

Give it another year or two and I'll get back to you.

Smile? How 'bout laughing out loud until I nearly wet my jeans?!

I was in the kitchen a few minutes ago getting some things done ahead of time for tonight's dinner. I'd put all the goodies in the crock-pot and then set to peel some taters for mashing later.

I pulled a bunch of potatoes out of the sack and, I don't know what the grower did, but two of the potatoes that came out AT THE SAME TIME looked exactly, and I DO mean exactly like the vital parts of the male anatomy. No joke. I began to laugh and went into the den where Glenn was and showed him what I'd, um, discovered. He started to laugh, then we were both bent over in peals of laughter. It was all I could do to peel those spuds without wincing a little.
