THURSDAY, JUNE 26 – CHOCOLATE PUDDING DAY
Think of all the wonderful things you can do with chocolate pudding:
• You can finger paint,
• Use chocolate pudding to dye fabrics
Use Jello chocolate pudding for an homage to Bill Cosby
• My Aunt Vi was a professional wrestler, and used to wrestle in chocolate pudding.
Fifty years ago, there was no boxed chocolate pudding and we had to make it from
scratch – and it was pretty good. If you want to try, this is how to do it.
Make a list and remember this is a laughing matter.
“The first bowl of chocolate pudding was too hot, but Goldilocks ate it all anyway, because, hey, it’s chocolate pudding. Right?”
Not only is laughter one of our earliest means of shared communication but a recent study by Dr. Michael Miller, director of preventive cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center, it was found that laughter sets off a series of biological events, leading to the widening of the interior lining of the blood vessels. “The bottom line of our research is that laughter not only makes us feel good, but has a direct effect on our blood vessels, and our blood vessels control the likelihood of our developing a heart attack or stroke,” Miller says in the video above. “So if we keep the blood vessels healthy, then we’re going to be healthy.”
