Happiness is dirt related...
OK bearing in mind the date, this may be a complete wind-up, but.... there is an article in today's Sunday Times that suggests frequent exposure to a bacteria found in dirt makes you happier.
With peace and consolation hath dismist, And calm of mind all passion spent...
Recent research from the University of Leipzig also suggested that exposure to dirt is directly proportional to income in later life.
Not such a crazy idea after all, making the link between healthy immune system and mental wellbeing. Also the physical fitness gained while digging releases those endorphins ...... I know I feel better when out and about than sat behind a desk.

nil desperandum
I've been in contact with this bacteria and I still have the rash.
But you feel good inside? Wink
