I was looking for melatonin and my son's pediatrician sent me to Natural Grocers.

Melatonin is a hormone, so I went to the hormone aisle in the store.

I found the melatonin and struck up a conversation with two customers and a store clerk.  They were so friendly!  They talked about their great experience cooking natural foods to keep the most nutritional content.

Editor, Good Day Journal

The new TV is online videos.  Now people can surf the internet and watch the results on their TV screen.  But also, nothing beats video for being able to communicate things.  Videos have taught me how to sharpen a chain saw, train dogs, do things on Acobe Photoshop...the list goes on.

Something like half the traffic on the internet in the world is with video.  Connect the dots.

I took a break from hiking in the Rawah Wilderness this past September, and visited Camp Nicol.

Dozens of cub scouts swarmed around the headquarters there, gathering for an exciting hike to enjoy the fall colors at the camp.  Camp Nicol is part of Ben Delatour Scout Camp, located near Red Feather Lakes, Colorado.  It is thousands of acres in the rolling pine forest of northern Colorado.

It's not surprising the brain can control a whole host of the body's chemistry.  The brain is a storehouse of chemical reactions.

What is truly amazing is how much the right kind of thinking can so specifically control a certain process elsewhere in the body.
