Hey Everyone.

First, it's been a while since we have posted anything on Health in the Laugh Lane so I hope you enjoy this new post.

Second this post is written by a new contributor to the site, Emma Lawson. I am positive you will find her writing as great as I did and the subject of her post right on target with what Health in the Laugh Lane stands for.
I'd like to introduce a new contributor to Health in the Laugh Lane. Emma Lawson contacted me just a week ago and I really enjoyed reading her work. Make sure to visit her site at High Style Life. ...

Just tried posting this on Medium.
Back in the early 80’s before my friend was killed, he made a statement to me to think about. He said. “Mark what do you…

After reading this article by +Mike Elgan I feel better about the letter I received from Apple and their new News App in iOS9.

Seems what I thought was just them taking anyone, they are hand picking the news sources they accept.

Just so you know why I'm happy they accepted It's All Mishegoss.com my blog.

From Mike's article:
The app is already controversial because Apple will hand-pick content sources, at least initially, and because the app will just come with every iPhone and iPad.
News apps have always failed, but four apps emerged this month that have cracked the code at last.

After trying a gazillion times I finally corrected the site for Emma Lawson's site.

I want to apologize to her and everyone reading the article for my obvious good/screw-up.

Sorry Emma

Sometimes you just need to share a post that meant something to you personally.

In this case this is the post. It isn't exactly news, but it revolves around news and for me I felt compelled to write it.

I think that a post like this will be coming to the blog more often.

While I am writing and thinking, I've been looking at moving the blog to Medium, but I don't know if it would be worth it at this point.

With things happening for the blog with Apple News it may be better to stay as is.

Any thoughts would be appreciated as always.

Are you into opinions both good and bad?

I understand if you're not, but just incase you do here are mine about the world as it is and where it may be going.

This isn't the last of these article either. It's a good place to start though and I will keep at it for a while or till the end!

Hi Julie,
Thank you for the kind words. I feel the same as you as you can tell. What I think many people fail to do is get themselves fixed first and then take on something else. That's why so many fail when trying to help. They get frustrated and they just aren't ready for a challenge outside of themselves. I know I've been there.

Thanks for commenting and hope you enjoy more of my writings in the future.

Todays post is an opinion about a testament made to me back in the 80's Would like to know your thoughts on the statement and my opinion since then.

It's all about us, the world and what's going on.

Introduction
I worked in an industry for years that required quick thinking and instant decisions. It also required an in depth knowledge of international laws. I loved every minute of it except for the times when repercussion came along, but then who likes repercussions?

For the past 8 years I have spent that time creating non-profits and sites to go along with them that concentrate on health related concerns like animal cruelty and rescue, diabetes, obesity and general health in aging. 

I have ADHD and control it (sometimes) without meds. In fact to give you an idea of my ADHD I just had testing done again to see where I was at. I scored a 99.9% on the test and that wasn't in a good way. My writing shows my ADHD mind working and sometimes it isn't a pretty site, unless you have ADHD , then it's also perfect.

Our main health community tied to our blog is Health in the Laugh Lane and you can join by clicking on here.

My goal of the blog, Health in the Laugh Lane is to be helpful to you as much as it is for me. I am not a health expert but I enjoy learning about health and I want others to enjoy it with me. So my blog idea is to create an environment where people want to come not to hear me lecture, but learn what I am learning and possibly together we can help each other.

I want to share my experience with everyone here today. About 6 months ago I wanted to start up my blog Health in the Laugh Lane on Wordpress and I really didn't have experience with it. In stepped iHelpers LLC Now only did they get me situated and all set up on the wordpress platform but they also offered management and hosting for the blog. This was more than I could ask for. +iHelpers LLC is the best by far and if I was you I would check out their prices which are unbelievable, their work which is fantastic and their way with motivating you on blogging. Not to mention the hosting packages they have available to one and all. For the novice or the expert turn to +iHelpers LLC for all of your website and blogging need.
