Thanks for reading my blog. I hope I gave you a chuckle.  That was my intention. I needed a chuckle myself. I hope that chuckling is contagious and you catch it, too.

Punch a number to give your characters one of these remotes and see their moods activate in front of you.

I’d be honored if you would sign up in the left hand column to subscribe to my blog. 

It’s an honor to have you as a reader. I treasure your comments. I hope you’ll tell me what you would like for your remote control to do for you.

Laugh your way to success.
