How many thousands of people dropped their newspapers right where they stood and drove off, still in their bathrobes, to bang on the doors of health food stores before 8 o'clock one fine fall morning because of the following news story? Dietary supplements of the metal chromium can extend the life span of rats by more than one-third and may have similar effects in humans, a researcher has found. Oh, yawn. Another fountain of youth. Another elixir of the ages.

If you want to attract bees to the garden and keep them happy, there are a few things to keep in mind. * Grow a variety of plants that flower and provide pollen and nectar over a long season. Plants in the legume and sunflower family, as well as fruit trees, attract bees. * Never overhead water plants that provide pollen and nectar to bees. "If you saturate the pollen with water and dilute the nectar in plants, bees don't want anything to do with it," Mussen says.
