The older I get the less I can watch movies that make me cry. I bawled like a baby at Toystory 3. Have told some friends on the downhill slope not to see it, for Toystory 3 is all about loss and loss is one of the harder parts of being on the down hill slope.
This article agrees with me about preferring laugher over tears.
I have a number of friends who email me jokes. I have several joke sites on my Tweeter board. I collect ideas about funny movies to see. I hear Grownups is one. David and I will go this weekend. I search the web for comic clips. Laughter is important.

So today’s Staying strong tip: Stay strong: laugh, play and don’t watch so much news or so many Talking Heads.
