(CNN) -- Australia's Prime Minister repeated Saturday that he has a "high degree of confidence" that acoustic signals detected in the Indian Ocean are from at least one of the two black boxes from the missing Malaysian plane, but predicted that finding them remains a "massive, massive task."

"It is likely to continue for a long time to come," Tony Abbott told journalists in Beijing, where he was on a diplomatic visit. Chinese officials appreciate Australia's "transparency and candor" in the search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, he said, adding "I think it's to our country's credit that we've approached it that way."

According to Henry David Thoreau: "Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder."

A large number of psychologists dare to differ. According to them if you chase the pretty butterfly named happiness enough you might just get it to come and hop on your shoulder. Here are eight simple -- and some of them, essential - steps to happiness:

1. Stop dwelling.

The past is precious because you can learn from your mistakes and learn from others' mistakes.

The pain is just training; it doesn't define you. Think about what went wrong but stop dwelling on it. Decid

A female soldier who befriended a heroic bomb-hunting dog in Afghanistan tracked down her comrade and gave him a new home after he became too timid to serve on the front lines.

Angie McDonnell, 40, a reservist who served in war-torn Helmand province as a medic, became 'best friends' with four-year-old Vidar while the two were based at Camp Bastion.

The Army reservist, who works full-time as a paramedic, said: 'He saved my life so it’s only fair that I did what I could to save his.

'The dogs out there are heroes and I knew from the first moment I saw him that he was a one-in-a-million. He looked like he needed a cuddle so I went into his kennel and rubbed his belly. 'We became best

LONDON (AP) — Model and media personality Peaches Geldof, the second daughter of Irish singer Bob Geldof and member of a talented, troubled family who grew up in the glare of Britain's tabloid press, was found dead Monday at age 25.

There was no immediate word on the cause of Geldof's death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England, but police called it "unexplained and sudden."

In a family statement, Bob Geldof said: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain."

Peaches Geldof had acknowledged using drugs in the past but said in a 2009 interview that she had quit.

The news of her death came as a shock to Britain's entertainment and fashion circles, where Geldof had been active a

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine - A malfunctioning ATM at a bank in Maine dispensed $37,000 in cash to a transient who requested $140, police say, according to CBS affiliate WGME.

South Portland police say they responded to the TD Bank branch Thursday morning after getting a call from a woman who said a man was spending an unusual amount of time at the ATM she was waiting to use. Officers responded and found the homeless man stuffing cash into a shopping bag.

The same man was found by police sleeping inside the bank beside the ATM the night before and police had kicked him out, according to the station.

The excess cash was returned to the bank and bank officials have declined to press charges

PERTH, Australia (AP) — Three separate but fleeting sounds from deep in the Indian Ocean offered new hope Sunday in the hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet, as officials rushed to determine whether they were signals from the plane's black boxes before their beacons fall silent.

The head of the multinational search being conducted off Australia's west coast confirmed that a Chinese ship had picked up electronic pulsing signals twice in a small patch of the search zone, once on Friday and again on Saturday.

On Sunday, an Australian ship carrying sophisticated deep-sea sound equipment picked up a third signal in a different part of the massive search area.

Nothing can compare with the freshness and incredible flavor of home grown fruits, herbs and vegetables. My family can hardly wait to harvest the first tomatoes from the garden to use in homemade tomato basil soup and a BLT sandwich!

Home gardens minimize your exposure to dangerous pesticides, chemicals and tainted produce. You have complete control over what goes in your food.

Not only will the food make you healthier, the exercise you get while working in a garden is such a benefit. Focus on all the calories you’ll burn while tilling, weeding, and harvesting your bounty. Finally, for me, digging in the dirt inspires peace, relaxation and a closeness with the earth.

Growing your ow

While everyone else is complaining about the weather Calvin and Zatera Spencer experienced a March to remember.

It sounds like an April Fool's joke, but the Virginia couple actually did win big money in three different Virginia lottery games all within a single month.

They won $1 million in the March 12 Powerball drawing. Then on March 26, Mr. Spencer won $50,000 with 10 winning tickets in the Virginia Lottery’s Pick 4 game, for which he played the numbers 6-6-6-6.

The next day, he bought a Scratcher ticket for the $100 Million Cash Extravaganza, and won the $1 million prize. “Baby, we did it again!” the Norfolk man told her.

When they traveled to the Virginia office to claim

A young woman who had a serious eating disorder but reformed her life through yoga and is now helping others, received a series of four life-changing tips during her shift as a waitress.

A YouTube channel decided to "Prank it Forward" and give the Los Angeles worker the best shift ever.

First someone tipped her a thousand dollars. Next someone gave her free vouchers for a trip for two to Hawaii.

Believe it or not, the surpises grew even bigger than that.

Dr. Susan Krevoy, a clinical psychologist who is opening a center that treats eating disorders, posed as a customer in order to offer the volunteer yoga teacher a dream job. And, finally, a special surprise guest was flown in
