Salsa making has never been so much fun!

Laugh a little…it’s good for you!

Just a few more days and a couple of hundred passengers later, we jump right into April.  Now, I love April!  It’s the beginning of all things bright and beautiful.  Actually, I woke up this morning humming that song from the ‘Sound of Music’…”raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens“…  Spring is definitely here, and you can feel it in the air.

Unlike a lot of places I have lived, Mazatlan is one of the few places where the weather is consistently warm and sunny.  Apart from Hurricane Season (Sept – Oct), we are blessed with sunny skies, blue waters and lots and lots of humidity!  Having lived in Melbourne and Vancouver BC (both with similar weather patterns – both very similar to Seattle weather), it’s kinda nice to not wake up to grey skies, rainy days and all that jazz.  Here though, when Spring arrives, something changes…  not only does the weather heat up, but things come alive.  People seem happier.

I’ll always be the first to tell you that happiness will cure EVERYTHING!  Ask your doctor.  He’ll tell you the same thing I will, if you are happy, you will live longer.  If you are happy, you are more likely not to get sick.  Jump on Google.  Look up secrets to living a long life, and you’ll find time and time again, those people who live to 100 or 110, when asked what their secret is, they all reply the same thing    “Just…be…happy…

Some of us forget to be happy.  We let the day to day things clog up our mind.  At Salsa and Salsa, we try hard (well, not too hard, coz we REALLY are quite goofy, it just comes naturally hahaha), but we enjoy making you laugh.  Laughter is really one of the best medicines.

It’s important to remember to laugh.  I have a “Joke of the Day” email sent to me everyday, I read it first thing in the morning.  I also have friends and family constantly sending me silly jokes or interesting facts (I love facts!) that will give me a giggle…  here’s a few facts that will give you a little chuckle (if you haven’t laughed in a while, this is a good way to ease into a rolling on the floor laughter 😉 )

YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2009 when....

1. You accidentally
enter your PIN on the microwave.

2. You haven't
played solitaire with real cards in years.

3. You have a list
of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of
three.

4. You e-mail the
person who works at the desk next to you.

5. Your reason for
not staying in touch with friends and family is that they
don't have e-mail addresses.

6. You pull up in
your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is
home to help you carry in the groceries.

7. Every commercial
on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen

8. Leaving the house
without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first
20 or 30 years of your life, is now a cause for panic
and you turn around to go and get it.

10. You get up in
the morning and go on line before getting your
coffee

11. You start
tilting your head sideways to smile. : )

12 You're reading
this and nodding and laughing.

13. Even worse, you
know exactly to whom you are going to forward this
message..

14. You are too busy
to notice there was no #9 on this list.

15. You actually
scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this
list

~~~~~~~~~~~AND
FINALLY~~~~~ ~~~~~~~

NOW U R LAUGHING at
yourself.

! Go lick your
elbow.

Education and LAUGHTER is the best provision for the journey to old age.

Have a wonderful day,


Pamela
