Among my favorite symbols of the holiday season are the words “Ho Ho Ho.” It's so cheerful--simply a short and to-the-point message of happiness. I buy any and all holiday decorations that have these three little words written on it. I like having the laughter around me, even in its written form. But after reading this new research, I'm wondering if my “ho ho ho” collection is doing more good for me than I ever realized. Many researchers in neuroscience believe happiness is a personal experience or an individualistic state.

We all spread cheer in our own ways and after reading this new study I find myself thinking about our annual caroling party. Every year we invite friends, neighbors, relatives, anyone and everyone that likes to sing to come caroling with us. We go on foot and cover as much ground as we can in an evening. We sing as loud as we can just to see someone answer the door and smile. I?m wondering if our yearly caroling party is doing more good than we ever realized.

Last Saturday was my absolute dream day after so many days of triple digit days. It was all misty when I awoke and I made the decision to stay in my pajamas and cozy slippers. I settled in with my dog Lola and a good book. I also managed to finish a knitting project that I had begun at least a year ago. As the day progressed the mist turned into raindrops that made me even happier. It was a fabulous day! Now, here we are again in 90 degree-plus weather and I’m back wearing light cotton clothes and sandals.

What does one do when it is 99 degrees in the shade? Try to get cool, of course. Such was the case on Wednesday afternoon, when a long line of overheated people waited to get a refreshing cup of frozen yogurt at Penguin's Frozen Yogurt Place in La Cañada Flintridge. All of the tables in the frozen yogurt and ice cream boutique were full of happy people spooning their designer concoctions of the cooling treat, many embellished with an assortment of toppings including juicy strawberries, chocolate chips, nuts and other sweets.

It?s time to put your political persuasion ahead of calorie counting and take part in the National Election Cookie Poll, now in progress across the country and locally at the Cakery Bakery in La Cañada. As of this week, La Cañada cookie buyers put Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain ahead of his opponent, Sen. Barack Obama, with a slight lead of 116 to 103 votes. However, according to national results tallied at the end of last week by the Retail Bakers of America, the 26 retail bakeries participating in the cookie poll registered Democrats with 481 cookies sold and Republicans trailing with 346 cookies sold.

This past weekend we had a preview of summer with high 80-degree weather. Surprise, I loved it! On Saturday night I went to see St. Francis High School's production of "Titanic - The Musical," story and book by Peter Stone with music and lyrics by Maury Yeston. This was a joint theatrical effort by St. Francis students and young women from Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy. Directing the production was Emmanuel "Manny" Eulalia , who heads up the performing arts department at St. Francis.

At the end of this year I started to think about values that are of importance to me. These ideas are continuing to flow and I want to share them with you over the next few weeks. May I wish you and yours a Happy New Year. 1. Look for the good in everyone; you will be sure to find some. 2. Use honesty with kindness and tactfulness when dealing with others. 3. It is a moral obligation to be responsible for your moods and not heap the negative ones onto others.
