"If You Build It, He Will Come!" X How About A Smile?

Hello Collinwood Family,

Wow.  Can you believe it?  Are you relishing in it?  Can you feel it?  Are you seeing it?  Amazing!  Unbelievable!  Fantastic!  Marvelous!  Wonderful!  You know exactly what I am referring to Collinwood Family and beyond.  Unseasonably warm temperatures and blue sunny skies.  I am so excited.  I am so stoked.  I am going out of my mind.  I am giddy like a school kid experiencing his first summer vacation.  So family, can someone, anyone answer this question for me?  Why aren’t more people smiling?  Why aren’t more people laughing?  Why aren’t more people displaying a grateful walk and even more of a grateful talk?  I just don’t understand US.  Now at the time of this writing this coming weekend on the Cleveland calendar means St. Patrick’s Day as well as the “official” beginning of Spring.  But you know family, rarely does Spring show up when the calendar says so.  Particularly here in Cleveland.  Need I remind you that our average high at this time of the year is a cold 41 degrees and the average low is 28 degrees?  And that is not with blue but grey skies.  But now we have Sun and fun in Cleveland in the month of March.  WOW! 

I therefore reference a previous article that spoke about the benefits of sunny skies.  In Blue Skies and Sunshine Everywhere I wrote:  “So the next time you feel a bit “down” (you probably need an increase of both vitamin D and vitamin B12 [the direct effect of the sun’s rays provide you the same thing] in your diet) remember that beauty exists all around you through the snow, the cold and yes particularly the vista “above the hills from which comes your help.” Well now Family you do have the blue skies and sunshine everywhere so Just Smile.

By the way did you know that science has proven that it takes more muscles in your face to display a frown as opposed to showing those pearly whites?  Remember “a smile is just a frown turned upside down.”  So once again; How About A Smile?

By the way, the forecasted average temperature for the beginning to end of this coming week is 79 degrees.  Believe me, I am smiling.  How about you?

Just thought you might like to know.

Until Next Time Happy Planting Collinwood Family.
