“Want to succeed in business, fill up your social calendar, and get more romance into your life? One secret may be in your smile.
“Your smile — simple, straightforward, and most important, sincere — can attract more than admiring looks. A smiling face tells people that you’re an outgoing and intelligent person worth getting to know.”
Here are some tips from webmd.com:
1″.Many Americans look at the mouth to judge a person’s mood, but people smile for all sorts of reasons: anger, fear, embarrassment, confusion, to deceive. It’s really your eyes that give you away.”
2.”A smile conveys confidence and professionalism,” says Lily T. Garcia, DDS, DDS, MS, FACP, president of the American College of Prosthodontists.”
3.”Want to be happy? Just smile. Believe it or not, forcing yourself to smile can actually make you happier.”
“Over the long term, smiling can benefit your health, perception at work, social life, and romantic status. With that much at stake, it’s worthwhile to discover what your smile is saying about you — and how to interpret the smiles flashed your way.”

“A truly great trail winds into the essence of a place, so when assembling this list of the world’s great hikes we kept an eye on more than the footpath. We looked for walks that travel deeper into a location’s history and culture. Sure, there’s outdoor adventure on each of these 20 hikes, but the trails also tell a rich story. So here they are, the holy grails of trails across the world.” —Doug Schnitzspahn
Are you and your significant other considering getting a pet? There may be health benefits.
“Pet ownership, particularly dog ownership, is probably associated with a decreased risk of heart disease,” said Glenn N. Levine, M.D., professor at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and chair of the committee that wrote the statement after reviewing previous studies of the influence of pets.
Research shows that:
Pet ownership is probably associated with a reduction in heart disease risk factors and increased survival among patients. But the studies aren’t definitive and do not necessarily prove that owning a pet directly causes a reduction in heart disease risk. “It may be simply that healthier people are the ones that have pets, not that having a pet actually leads to or causes reduction in cardiovascular risk,” Levine said.
Dog ownership in particular may help reduce cardiovascular risk. People with dogs may engage in more physical activity because they walk them. In a study of more than 5,200 adults, dog owners engaged in more walking and physical activity than non-dog owners, and were 54 percent more likely to get the recommended level of physical activity.
Owning pets may be associated with lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and a lower incidence of obesity.
Pets can have a positive effect on the body’s reactions to stress.

Throquet is particularly well-suited for large groups of boisterous adults playing as teams in a convivial atmosphere, such as a company picnic. Its modest pace provides exceptional opportunity for socializing and in-game refreshments. The essence of Throquet is for an individual player or team to be the first competitor to progress through a course by tossing or throwing a ring over a series of target cones in the specified order. It might be thought of as a cross between disk golf and croquet. Each Throquet course is custom-designed by the players to take best advantage of the area available for play – yard, park, beach, anywhere. Unlike croquet, Throquet does not require a flat pitch or marked boundaries; and there is not a rigidly specified number or placement for the targets. Throquet may even be played indoors.
