I hug you!

I saw this video on YouTube today.

It's about the Free Hugs Campaign by Juan Mann. He turned something so simple - hugging - into a most marvelous magical thing.

I read somewhere before that hugging is good for the heart. Literally. Hugs slow down the heart rate and decrease blood pressure. So it's the best free heart and blood pressure medicine there is! Plus, it's such a joy to give and receive.

Go hug somebody today. It's my New Year's resolution, to hug at least one person every single day. Oh, and one fat rabbit, too!

Happy New Year everybody! I wish you love, joy, peace and all of God's wonderful blessings! Hugs to you!


  1. Sending HUGS, SHOES, and SNOWBALLS your way Neighbor! :)

    Happy, happy 2008! Mwah!

    ...See you in NY in the summer?:)

  2. Hi Mariel! I do hope we see each other in NYC this April! Still don't know for sure. Vince and I are thinking of doing (it in) Europe in May!!! So it's either NY or Euro. Both will be too expensive! Pray that a lot of money (or a very generous sponsor!) will come our way hehe.

    Hi Crescenet! I assume you are Portuguese? I took Spanish classes and your language looks Spanish but I don't understand it at all! So it must be Portuguese =D
    I assume you are saying you find my blog interesting and that you want me to visit your site, too, and that you're sending me a hug. Well, eu abra├žo-o demasiado! Ano novo feliz!

  3. Happy New Year, Ms Frances! By the way, thanks for the Spiderman3 DVD I won in your promo! :D

  4. Wow! How nice that you won! Our promos get a lot of entries. Congratulations and Happy New Year to you, too!

  5. HAPPY NEW YEAR! I have been avoiding Facebook due to my inability to face the pressure of pending invites (haha), so I decided to stalk you on your blog. Just wanted to say I miss you and the rest of the fabulous people at OK! Hope all's well!

    hugs from your erstwhile Editorial Assistant,

  6. All is well, J sweetie! The mag is doing very very well. And the Red Carpet pages are still one of the best-written parts of OK! Hay, why did you leave us?

  7. I ask myself that often, too...Perhaps because I'm an idiot? haha. See you! XOXO

  8. Yes, you're an idiot! How dare you leave us?
