  36. Ron, thanks for following my blog. Have come to return the favour. What a beautiful blog you have!!

    I especially like that you included No. 6. Laugh. We don't do it enough it seems. I read recently that children laugh about 1000 times per week, but adults laugh only about 5 times per week.

    Keep up the great work. And what a nice way to honour a loved one...
