Dr. Spock’s Book, Baby and Child Care, Published

This book is one of the biggest best-sellers of all time

Smile Power Day

Here’s an article about the benefits of smiling: Smile Power – Increase your Face Value

A good day for nice cheerful songs. There’s an old square dance record called Smile Medley. Then there’s “Let a Smile Be Your Umbrella” and “Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag” (“and smile, smile, smile”).
