February 8 is Laugh and Get Rich Day. A day for enriching your life with happiness.
While the origins of this unofficial holiday are not known, it seems that the unknown creators of the holiday wanted to encourage people to spend the day laughing and being happy.
Happy and Healthy
While being happy won't make you laugh all the way to the bank, it will certainly help improve your mood and your health. Studies have shown that people who are happy and laugh often tend to have less stress, lower blood pressure, and a better immune response. Laughing and sharing jokes can also have social benefits. Happy people tend to have more friends and are easily accepted by social groups.
Being happy can also help a person professionally. Joyful workers are more productive and liked by their co-workers compared to cranky and unhappy professionals.
How to Celebrate?
Laugh, laugh, and laugh! Tell jokes and solicit jokes from friends and co-workers to put you in the mood to think up of money making ventures.
Watch the 1931 American comedy movie, Laugh and Get Rich starring Edna May Oliver and Hugh Herbert with family and friends.
Did You Know…
…that laughing can burn calories? Scientists have found that 15 minutes of laughter can burn as many as 50 calories.

TOTM is back with a little twist. This year we are going to do it a little different. Post a picture and a write up of your ride between the 1st-21st then we vote the 22nd-months end. After the voting the winner will be messaged for email info. The email is for the digital TOTM award. Printing and shipping them was getting pricey and time consuming. The awards will be printable on your end and then you can frame them. Thanks to Keith (charged392) for heading this up!
It's time to look forward to the 2020 Rally!! There is a thread started for information and input. Anyone may submit a proposal. We'll need to know where and when (we usually do June/July to accommodate those with kiddos), hotel options/costs, and activities available. We'll be glad to help you with stuff if you are nervous about submitting a proposal. Mostly, it's helpful to have someone familiar with the area heading it up so we know where to or NOT to stay and things to do.
Chatroom is back!! Join us every Thursday evening at 7:00 CST for chatroom. See what going on with the rest of the HTC'ers.
If you have a prayer request you would like to share either add it to this thread or PM me.
