"I knew he was sad."

Listen to the song it'll make sense.

1. Avoid this hidden danger!
It's iron. Getting too much of this mineral can as much as double your risk of developing diabetes. Excess iron settles in the pancreas and liver, where it stalls insulin production and hinders the body's ability to use glucose. Your best bet: Opt for an iron-free multi, unless a blood test confirms that you're iron deficient.

2. Hang out with supportive people!
Encouragement from others makes us more likely to achieve things that make us lucky! When we're told by others we can accomplish something, it gives us the confidence to achieve it! Say encouraging things to your loved one, and they'll start saying them back to you! Since we often mirror the behavior of others, being a cheerleader for others will make them cheer for you, too!

3. Beat depression with Salba
Salba seeds, also called chia contain 8 times more mood boosting omega-3 fatty acids than a serving of salmon! A handful contains 6 times more calcium than a glass of milk, 3 times more iron than spinach and 3 times more antioxdants than blueberries.

4. Soy buils new collagen!
Eating soy-based foods increases collagen production so effectively that if you do you'll have less sagging and fewer wrinkles than women who don't. Collagen proteins are like scaffolding in skin-they're the fibers that maintain the structure of cells, so reinforcing them helps keep the surface of skin taut and firm. Use soy milk in your coffee and pour it over your morning cereal; add tofu to your favorite stir-fry; and snack on soy nuts.

5. To comfort someone, Wear powder blue!
Looking at this shade trigers the production of melatonin, the brain chemical in charge of sleep and relaxation. What's more, it produces impulses in the brain that calm the nervous system and lower pulse rate! It makes someone feel comforted just talking to you.

6. Feel more optimistic! Look at yellow daffodils!
The sight of flowers makes people feel happier and more satisfied with their lives. The color yellow is study-proven to trigger the release of feel-good endorphins and daffodils are strongly associated with springtime-the season of fresh starts.


The daffodil is also the national flower of Wales and is also known as the Narcissus

2. Black Market Drugs

The agents will be called "Pseudo Feds."

3. In Line...

Here are the reasons I'd Like to thank Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, and my local grocer for having 25 checkout lanes and only three open at any given time.

- I can taste test my package of the newest low-carb, zero-transfat, Splenda-saturated cookies.

- I can breathe heavily on my T-bones so they're defrosted in time for dinner and I won't have to leave them out on the driveway in the hot late afternoon sun as I normally do.

4. Fined

Joe was in court charged with parking his car in a restricted area. The judge asked him if he had anything to say in his defense.

"They should not put up such misleading notices," said Joe.
