I made a decision on the way down to the vacation beach cottage(小屋). For two weeks I would try to be a loving husband and father. Totally loving . No ifs, ands or buts.
The idea had come to me as I listened to a talk on my car radio. The speaker was reading a Biblical(圣经)passage about husbands being thoughtful of their wives. Then he went on to say,” love is an act of will. A person can choose to love.” To myself, I had to say that I had been a selfish husband. Well, for two weeks that would change.
And it did. Right from the moment I kissed Mary at the door and said,” That new yellow sweater looks great on you.”
“Oh, Tom,you noticed,” she said,surprised and pleased.Maybe a little confused.
After the long drive, I wanted to sit and read.Mary suggested a walk on the beach.I started to refuse,but then I thought, “Mary’s been alone here with the kids all week and now she wants to be alone with me.” We walked on the beach while the children flew their kites.
So it went.Two weeks of not calling the company where I am a manager,a visit to the shell museum though I usually hate museums.Relaxed and happy,that’s how the whole vacation passed.I made a new decision to keep on remembering to choose love.
There was one thing that went wrong with my experiment,however.Mary and I still laugh about it today.On the last night at our cottage,preparing for bed,Mary looked at me with saddest expression.
“What’s the matter?” I asked her.
“Tom,”she said in a voice filled with sadness, “do you know something I don’t?”
“What do you mean?”
“Well...that checkup I had several weeks ago...our doctor...did he tell you something about me?Tom,you’ve been so good to me..am I dying?”
It took a moment for it all to sink in.Then I couldn’t help laughing.
“No,honey,”I said,holding her in my arms. “ You’”

When you’er packing for an adventure,what’s the most important thing you’ll need? If you don’t want to get lost. you’ll need a map.Or better yet, a GPS.What about other animals.how do they know where they’re going?
While humans depend on technology to travel,some animals have something far more advanced.Researchers,mainly from Oregon State University,US ,found that Chinook salmon(鲑鱼）have a “built-in GPS’ of the Earth’s magnetic field（磁场）.This means as soon as they are born they are able to direct themselves in the ocean.It acts like a big map inside their brain.
Scientists placed some baby salmon into a big swimming pool.To the Earth’s magnetic field,they put magnetic coils、9线圈） all around the pool.Then,by changing the direction of the coils,the salmon began to change their own direction.They started to face in the direction of their ocean feeding area.This is a safe place in the ocean where salmon can find food
to eat.When the scientists changed the coils to the opposite side,the salmon also turned in the opposite direction.Just by using their “built-in GPS”, the salmon were able to find out the direction of their feeding area.
How did Chinook salmon get their “built-in GPS”? The scientists think that their navigation(导航） skills came through evolution(进化）.The fish that were able to reach the feeding area lived longer. Then they could pass on their navigation skills to their babies.So if you’re ever lost and in need of some help,maybe you should ask a salmon to point you in the right direction!
