Fact or Fiction
Elephants are afraid of mice.
There is no evidence that elephants are afraid of mice, according to animal behavior experts. In fact, elephants do not appear to be very fearful, especially in the wild, where they share habitats with fierce predators such as lions and tigers. Most elephants in captivity coexist peacefully with rodents, which nest in the abundance of hay and straw and feast on the pachyderm’s leftovers. Elephants can behave unpredictably in captivity, however, and are very protective of their young.
Reason to party today – coz it’s happy hour somewhere in the world.
Memorial Day (Traditional)

Moment of Zen
“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend – or a meaningful day.” –Dalai Lama
