Horoscope Weekly Overview (Week starting on April 4)

Your life may be full of days spent speeding down the highway toward sweet destiny, but Monday and Tuesday aren’t among them. You’re moving in the direction of destiny, sure, but the pace would be more accurately described as that of an infant on all fours. The crawl intensifies to something more like a healthy jog on Wednesday and Thursday, but it’s difficult to keep your legs pumping, since you spend much of your time holding a cell phone to your ear. Friday and Saturday are days of clarity and catharsis and possibly family time. Sunday’s romantic. o n l i n e at t h e va l l e y c r i e r . c o m

@snet.net Is it true that legally you have to pay sales taxes on FREE CLASSIFIEDS? It doesn’t seem to make sense, but what can you expect if Gov. Mulley has to ruin all the fun to balance the budget. But the real truth is, if you get the Classified for FREE it eliminates the need to do this because The Crier can declare you as a non-profit subject to certain conditions.

Thinking Out LOUD A Little Must is a Big Must Down in our very dry basement is one corner that smells a bit musty, and I have to be honest — I love it. I love it because it reminds me of what the family cottage smelled like in early summer when we opened up the place, and I loved that cottage. One whiff and I’m back on the screened-in porch waiting for the early morning fog to burn off. I’m curled up on chintz-covered furniture so worn that sneakered feet are no longer a threat. I’m savoring my Dad’s homemade clam chowder or watching the grown-ups struggle to hear a Yankees game on the old AM radio. I’m falling asleep to sound of waves breaking somewhere off in the darkness. My husband always said I was a cheap date, and I guess this proves it. A little mildew and I’m not only on vacation. I’m young again! How great is that? (And how lucky © 2011, Judith S.

Technically Challenged We got my dad an iPad for his birthday so he could read books and look pointless stuff up online. The other day I hear him on the phone. Apparently he couldn’t figure out how to turn the page of the book and instead of asking me, my mom, or brother, he decided to call Apple’s customer service and wait on hold for 15 minutes, just to be told, in less than 5 seconds “use your finger.” He didn’t realize the touch screen applied to books too.

So not only does my dad not know any music technology invented after the 1950’s but he also must be spatially challenged too. Chris C
