Its Christmas and this year I feel particularly slow in recognising the fact.
I usually like to prepare something for the newsletter. But just 2 weeks ago I was basking in tropical sun and I still haven’t got used to the idea that its almost winter.
VIDEO I was weaned on the Readers Digest and used to avidly read two sections—the word puzzle page and ‘Laughter is the best medicine.’
Throughout my career I have reflected on the wisdom of this statement. People who laugh more are happier, less stressed and live longer!!

I’ve told you many times that my brain is wired differently.
For example I have an annoying habit of manipulating things subconsciously and joining imaginary lines. For example, no matter how hard I try to avoid drawing imaginary diagonal lines across the ceiling of a room in an attempt to make a perfect square, I just cannot stop myself.
I suspect that many people who looked at the quiz were more puzzled about how my brain works rather than the puzzles themselves!
But I guess we’re all excited by different things and that it the spice of life.
With a fear of offending the traditionalists I’ve produced my own version of the 12 days of Christmas.
Due to shortage of space I’ve only produced the last verse.
