Get to know a little bit more about the team behind This time we answer the question, “What cheers you up?”

I get cheered up in a number of ways ranging from time away “from it all” with family to time curled up with a new book. – Kym

My colleagues and customers. ………   Now to the rest of the answer.  My grandchildren.  No matter how grumpy or bad the day, they cheer me up.  Even when they are evil on a plane, there is something to smile about. – Annette

People smiling at me cheers me up.  I don’t have to know the person or anything, it can be the check-out clerk at the grocery store.  But someone offering me a genuine smile, however small and brief, will go a long way to cheer me up!  – Katie

Funny animal videos  – Emily

Laughing. Jokes (punny ones). Dancing. Sunshine. There are a few that  come to mind.  – Nick



One word: PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  – Sandy





Ya see, when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad… I simply remember my favorite things, and then I don’t feel so bad!  I cheer up by working out hard and then spending time in good company. I have found that it is hard for me to stay sad in the middle of a run or while lifting weights, and being with people I enjoy keeps me happy afterward. – Ray
