ZIP'S QUIPS ARE BACK
GOOD MORNING FELLOW ZIPSTERS,
Thanks Joey Z for allowing me to fill in today. Let us start off with:
SOME TRULY AMAZING STUFF:
According to researchers, laughter could be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to coping with life's stresses. Its been proven that laughter:
Lowers blood pressure.
Eases mental tension.
Reduces levels of hormones that trigger the stress responses and suppress immunity.
Laughter is beneficial for improving one's perspective on life in general.
If your throat tickles, scratch your ear. You can try clearing your throat, but that won't make that tickle feeling go away. Here's a better way of dealing with tickles in your throat: "When the nerves in the ear are activated, it creates a reflex-life reaction in the throat that can cause a muscle twitch", says Dr. Shefer, head of the Ear, Nose and Throat ward at a New Jersey hospital. "Those twitches ease the tickling sensation. "You heard it from Zippy, just scratch your ear.
I hope Joey Z will not get upset, but here are a few food celebrations I love.
PICKLE DAY - I love pickles, especially the the Kosher whole or sliced pickles, Polish pickles, sweet pickles sliced, you name them, I love them.
SPAGHETTI O'S MADE THEIR DEBUT - Good old Chef Boyardi introduced his Italian heritage on food today. Zip loved them as a kid along with the ravioli but now too much sodium for the aging Zip.
HAVE A GREAT DAY AND TAKE CARE.
