For Amusement Only
Aries Mar. 21 – Apr. 19: Don’t bury old feelings. Neutralize them by addressing them, forgiving if necessary to free yourself, and move on feeling less burdoned.
Taurus Apr. 20 – May 20: April is about renewal, reorganization and even rebirth for some. Reassess what still matters and discard the rest.
Gemini May 21 – June 20: Prepare yourself for a blindside. It’s not necessarily bad if you look at the big picture with an open mind. It may even be fortuitous!
Cancer June 21 – July 22: There’s something going on that needs closer attention. Ask around for clues. Get confirmation before acting. Take a more positive approach.

Virgo Aug. 23 – Sept. 22: Any day now you won’t have to wait any longer. That will be a relief to you. A little gratitude would not go amiss either!

Flour – The Miracle Healer!
If you ever burn yourself, like a grease burn on your hand, in the first 15 minutes, stick your hand in a bag of flour! Hold it there for 10 minutes, then remove it. You won’t have a single red mark or blister, and you’ll feel no pain! Better still, keep a bag of flour in the fridge; the coolness feels even better. Apparently, the flour possesses heat-absorbing properties. I’ve heard from Europeans that this remedy not only works like a charm, but has been used for generations – or even longer!
A couple in their 90’s are both having trouble remembering things. Their doctor advised them to start writing things down. One night, while watching TV, the old man got up. “Want anything from the kitchen?”, he asked his wife. “Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?”, she asks. “OK.” “Don’t you think you should write it down so you’ll remember?”, she asks. “No, I can remember it.” “Well, I’d like some strawberries on top, too – oh, and some whipped cream on top too. Maybe you should write it down.” He replies, “I can remember that: a bowl of ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream on top.” “Maybe you should write it down anyway”, she says. “Oh, for the love of …”, he replies irritated. “I got it! Then he toddles into the kitchen. About 20 minutes later, he returns and hands his wife a plate of eggs and bacon. She stares at the plate for a moment. Where’s my toast?”
How I spend my waking day: 50% of it working, 10% eating, and 40% looking for something I just had in my hand a minute ago!

- Put a Bounce dryer sheet in your belt loop to repel wasps, mosquitoes, ants, etc. [It works! – Ed.]
- Place Bounce sheets around your foundation, trailer, or car to keep mice out.
- Because they eliminate static, you can clean your TV and computer screens with one.
- Dissolve soap scum from shower doors with a sheet.
- Suitcases – Place inside to repel mites and bedbugs, especially when in motel rooms.
- Motel rooms – Run Bounce sheets over the bed sheets to rid them of bedbugs.
