what makes me happy !

“We’re so grateful we can give back!” My 14- and 16-year-old daughters and I love to create care packages to send to military organizations in need. I flip through old issues of Woman’s World and clip out the “Help a Hero” sections, then stash them in a jar. Each week, my children take turns picking out a new “Help a Hero” article. Then we coupon to get whatever items that organization needs and mail them with homemade thank-you cards to show the troops our appreciation. There’s no better feeling than giving back! You deserve a little lift! “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” —Arthur Ashe Do you have a happy moment to share?

Even young pups quickly learn to interpret humans’ speech, say scientists. Over time, dogs’ brains have evolved to understand people, which has helped them go from wild animals to friendly family pets! You really should save the best for last! Don’t eat dessert first—you’ll enjoy it less! University of Michigan researchers…

•Construction began on what would become one of America’s most famous landmarks, the Golden Gate Bridge, in 1933. Not long after, the big event was celebrated with a parade, a message from President Herbert Hoover, a 21-gun salute and a pageant in which engineering students showed off an 80-foot-long model of the bridge containing carrier pigeons that were released to spread news of the groundbreaking throughout California! • Of course, of course, Mr. Ed, the show about a talking horse, debuted on television in 1961. The executive producer who helped finance the $70,000 pilot episode of the unlikely hit? None other than the cigar-chomping comedian George Burns—who also appeared on the series in its second season! • “American Pie” by Don McLean kept climbing the Hot 100 chart in 1972, eventually reaching…
