LIBRA - The Harmonizer (Sept 23 - Oct 22) Nice to everyone they meet. Can't make up their mind. Have own unique appeal. Creative, energetic, and very social. Hates to be alone. Peaceful, generous. Very loving and beautiful. Flirtatious. Give in too easily. Procrastinators. Very gullible. 9 years of bad luck if you do not forward.
So what do you think? Creepy, huh.

How many members of your astrological sign does it take to change a light bulb?
Aries: Just one. You want to make something of it?
Taurus: One, but just "try" to convince them that the burned-out bulb is useless and should be thrown away.
Gemini: Two, but the job never gets done--they just keep arguing about who is supposed to do it and how it's supposed to be done.
Cancer: Just one. But it takes a therapist three years to help them through the grief process.
Leo: Leos don't change light bulbs, although sometimes their agent will get a Virgo to do the job for them while they're out.
Virgo: Approximately 1.0000000 with an error of +/- 1 millionth.
Libra: Er, two. Or maybe one. No - on second thought, make that two. Is that okay with you?
Scorpio: That information is strictly secret and shared only with the Enlightened Ones in the Star Chamber of the Ancient Hierarchical Order.
Sagittarius: The sun is shining, the day is young and we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid light bulb?
Capricorn: I don't waste my time with these childish jokes.
Aquarius: Well, you have to remember that everything is energy, so...
Pisces: Light bulb? What light bulb?

Then I thought it would be funny to get my picture taken with this cut out advertisement for a concert. Sadly now I do not remember the name of this country star. Anyone recognize him? Not taking my stalker responsibilities seriously enough, am I ?
I found this article, with video included and it made me smile, so I thought I would share it with all of you. I love this clip from Singing in the Rain. And I think it is impossible to sing along without embracing the sentiment of the song. So good morning to you and you and you!
Ten Sunny Ways to Make Your Day a Good One!
A good day is when I wake up remembering that a good day happens by CHOICE not chance!
A good day is when I live the day in the present, being grateful for the little things in life.
A good day is a day that I look back on and smile, because I allowed myself to be open to something new without realizing it at the time.
A good day is when I can feel anger, pain, sadness, etc. but not let it take over.
A good day is when I relax and go with the flow.
A good day is drama free. (My choice, again.)
A good day is when I'm aware that I'm a kind and compassionate person and treat myself that way.
A good day is when I don't use excuses to paralyze my thoughts and dreams or allow fear to keep me from stepping out and doing something I believe in.
A good day is connecting with people who are on the same self exploration journey as I am.
A good day is the realization that EVERY DAY IS A GOOD DAY no matter what happens.

Jared, I am so pleased with the fine young man you are growing up to be. I admire the fact that you are a good student, dedicated musician, and great sportsman. A true triple threat. Any mother would count herself lucky to have you as a son, and that is exactly how I feel. I am so grateful you are a part of our family. So here is to you--hip, hip, hooray! And a very Happy Birthday!

Terrified, the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it.The priest bent close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognizable music coming from the grave. Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate.
When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a moment, and said, "Ah, yes, that's Mozart's Ninth Symphony, being played backwards."
He listened a while longer, and said, "There's the Eighth Symphony, and it's backwards, too. Most puzzling."
So the magistrate kept listening; "There's the Seventh... the Sixth... the Fifth..."
Suddenly the realization of what was happening dawned on the magistrate; he stood up and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, "My fellow citizens, there's nothing to worry about. It's just Mozart decomposing."

I also got to hear Sis Dalton speak as well last year and I look forward to being led by her. She told a very funny story about her only daughter at the conference. Apparently, one day when she was dropping her daughter off at kindergarten, her daughter fell and she accidentally ran over her with the car. Fortunately, it was winter and between her daughter's snow suit and the snow on the road, her daughter was not even hurt. Sis Dalton just brushed her off and said, "Go on into school." Sis Dalton did feel a bit badly though when she noticed a tire mark on her daughters back. You gotta love and relate to another mother like that. :)

Last Sunday night I received a call informing me of the death of a sister in our ward. It was rather unexpected, in that she went to bed Saturday night and just did not wake up the next morning. This sister happened to be one of Diana's primary teachers. So I had to break the news to Diana. This sister was 65 and in relatively good health. Someone at the funeral said that she had come visiting teaching the Thursday before she died. At the visit the sister who would die 3 days later, said she wasn't feeling well, but that she thought it was allergies. I would like to sign up for dying in my sleep that way. It sounds like the ideal way to die, since it has to happen eventually.
So Friday was the funeral. I took Diana out of school so she could attend because she said that she really wanted to go. I thought it might be a good way for her to have closure. Diana did even go into the viewing, which I hope will not scar her for life, but I don't think it did. The other teacher of the class was there and she seemed very upset. I think that it helped in a way to have Diana there. Even though I knew the sister who passed away, I do not feel the same sense of loss that Diana and her remaining teacher feel. Diana's living teacher reminded her of how Sis. Winward had just taught them a lesson about the Resurrection. I think that is very comforting to know that this Sister who died had such a strong testimony of the plan of salvation.
This whole experience had made me take a closer look at my own life. Sometimes we get no warning of when we might die. So just like we always hear, we need to be living each day as if it were our last.

I thought this was very interesting that even though we are not biologically related, this thing said Jared looks more like Marion. I figured that it would come out like Trent and Diana's which says they both look equally like us, which really is the same as not at all. Strange.
