Hi Erik,

That's great! Send best to your Dad. Willibald is a good guy. Small world. Congrats on your humor writing. If you have a link to your work, send it along.

Best to you,


Erik Deckers


I stumbled across your blog completely by accident, finding it on an AllTop page (I never visit AllTop).

I've actually met Willibald Ruch, and my dad (Dr. Lambert Deckers, a psychology professor at Ball State University) did some humor research with him back in the 1990s. Ruch came to the US for a visit, and when my dad went on sabbatical one semester, he spent several weeks with Ruch, working on a couple of studies.

I've become a humor writer, focusing on the applied side of humor, while my dad remains firmly entrenched on the theoretical side.

Thanks, U.D. All the best, David

Great to hear from you, Lil. Just looking for more humor will bring more of it to you. And your puppy sure seems to be helping your humor mission! That's great.

Best to you,

Hi Ana,

Great to hear from you. I'll post some ideas as you suggest. There are a number of ways we can bring out our humor even more.

Best to you,


Thanks David, I am trying to put more humor in my life; I tend to be too serious. I appreciate the positive attitude, and I think I succeed in that quest most of the time. Your series has helped so very much
Our little puppy makes me smile and laugh right out aloud. That's good. Thanks again, lil


Is it possible to improve good humour?
I'd like to see you write a post about that.
