April Fools Day - A Whiner's Wish!

A Good News Story for April Fools Day – 2009
Humor When We Need It Most!

“Do you know the difference between a recession and a depression? A recession is when you lose your job. A depression is when I lose mine!”

So humorizes, January Jones, author of Thou Shalt Not Whine…The Eleventh Commandment and radio host of Whine Time with January on voiceamerica.com from Westlake Village, CA and a member of AATH - the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor. The mission of this international community of professionals, founded in 1987, is to study, practice and promote healthy humor and laughter.

“Sure, the economy is ailing,” admits Ms. Jones but it’s the people who are really getting sick of all this bad news they’re being force-fed on TV and in the papers. You do remember newspapers, don’t you? They managed to survive for 300 years until sound-bite, sensational journalism staged a hostile takeover!”

“Shared laughter, humor and a smile comprise an international ‘language’ that connects all of mankind,” muses Ms. Jones who is the Chair for the AATH Jest Friends Program and is their official “Whine Jester.”

January along with hundreds of humor enthusiasts and professionals from around the world will convene in Las Vegas, April 2-5, 2009 for the 22nd Annual AATH Conference, “Healthy Humor: Hitting the Wellness Jackpot!” Focusing on theory and application in the fields of health care, education and business, the conference will offer ‘continuing education,’ networking opportunities, and fun for professionals who use humor and laughter in their jobs to enhance work performance, support learning, and promote healing, whether physical, emotional, social, or spiritual.

The AATH conference purposely coincides with ‘April Fools Day’ and the global celebration of Humor Month. But, Ms. Jones is quick to add a word of caution. “While ‘April Fools Day’ jokes and pranks may elicit laughter, they often tend to contradict the essence of ‘healthy’ humor.” According to AATH, cites Jones, “Healthy, therapeutic humor enhances relationships, is non-hostile, sympathetic, benevolent, tolerant, and often philosophical. AATH is careful to distinguish it from hurtful, harmful humor that is more aggressive, critical, sarcastic, cruel, often based on put-do wns, and involves laughing at someone else’s expense.”

For this year’s conference, AATH has already registered people from as far away as Australia, China, New Zealand, India, Japan, Israel, Korea, England, Denmark and all across North America. With its international membership, AATH spreads the message that humor and laughter do have a place in creating healthier, more effective environments in which to live, work and play!

“Preserving your sense of humor is the essential, daily medication needed for maintaining your mental health,” prescribes the Whine Jester. “Being able to laugh at this current economic mess, which we will get through, helps to sustain our emotional balance, our ‘quality of life,’ especially in the darkest of hours.”

Jones explains it with humorous, historical perspective, “It’s a little known fact… it was either Patrick Henry or Buck Henry… or maybe it was Henry Paulson or Pat Paulson who, prior to defiantly stating, “Give me liberty or give me death,” also proclaimed with a smile, “They may take my IRA, but they’ll never take my sense of humor!”

A smiling Ms. Jones summarizes, “We may not have control over trillion-dollar deficit spending, but we do have control over how we choose to approach each day that we wake up on this side of the dirt! We can either be grouchy and miserable (and we all know a few of those folks), or we can look for the humor that’s all around us… because it’s definitely there!”

So, Happy ‘April Fools Day’ and Happy ‘Humor Month!’ To brighten your day and adorn your refrigerator door or office bulletin board, AATH shares the following timely wit and wisdom.

Bumper Stickers:

I May Be Broke… But I Didn’t Break It!

My I.R.A. is Now D.O.A.

Will Work for Unemployment Benefits!

Don't Brake - I Need the Cash!

Buy American. The Job You’ll Save is Mine!

My Other Car is in the Shop... the Pawn Shop!

I’d Honk, But I’m Riding the Bus!

Johnny Paycheck = Johnny Rotten. Give Me Johnny Cash!

January Jones and The GX1 Yar Putter

The Yar Golf Gang with Phil, Dr. V, January, Gerri and Jeff

Putting can be pure pleasure! No more whining about putting or having to bend down to pick up your golf ball ever again! The GX1 is my Go To Answer!

I wanted to share with you the fun interview I did with Jeff Raymond at The PGA Show in Orlando featuring the Yar Golf GX1 putter. This is the most amazing putter that I have ever held in my hands and believe me ( like most golfers) I've tried lots, and lots of them! I discovered the putter at the Las Vegas PGA show last August when I demo-ed it and fell in love with it.

I am now the national spokeswoman for Yar Golf and the GX1 and proud to share it with all the "chronologically challenged competitors" out there. If you want to hear more about it be sure to listen to my radio show "Whine Time with January Jones" at www.voice.voiceamerica.com every Thursday at 9 am PST.

My special guest this week will be Phil Kinney and we'll be telling you all about the fun time we are having promoting the biggest innovation in golf. Personally I think it's magic but Phil will tell us all about the physics involved in creating such an amazing putter.

Now just what does Yar mean? Well you will just have to tune into the show and you'll find out about the name and many other fun facts on our special version of TEE Talk for Two on this coming Thursday!
