AQUARIUS

Horoscope

JAN. 20- FEB. 18

The Aquarius loves a party. Anytime, anywhere is their motto. It is not unlikely that an Aquarius will consider a wake a good place to meet chicks. Aquarians tend to be nostalgic about the 1960s because that was the last time they could be naked in public and get away with it. Aquarians love to be naked. It is even better if they are naked and crocked. 97.4% of the Night Train consumed in the past thirty years has been consumed by Aquarians. Almost every Aquarian will claim to have seen Jerry Garcia’s image in their Froot Loops at least once. Froot Loops is a very Aquarian cereal. So is Rice Krispies, since it will engage in a friendly chat with the Aquarian as he or she is eating breakfast. Count Chocula is off-limits, however. It belongs to the Scorpios. Aquarians are the only people in the zodiac who can play volleyball with themselves.

And they frequently do. Aquarians use the phrase “Dude, man...” frequently when describing philosophical concepts. Aquarians have out-of-body experiences on a daily basis. If you are talking to an Aquarian and he or she zones out, consider the conversation hopeless. He or she is talking to the guy three feet away from you. Aquarians are fun because they channel people. Plus, if you tell them to, they will run around naked. Aquarians like astronomy because they’ve been to all those places. If you want to know what the food is like on Saturn, ask an Aquarius. They can also walk on water if they try really really hard. This usually happens in the bathtub. Aquarians can allow themselves every possible vice on the planet, and don’t think twice about it. That is why they piss everyone else off. They are cosmically entitled to do this. Most rock stars are Aquarians.

CREDIT CORNER - JUDGMENTS 1 Although judgments can only remain on credit reports for seven years from the filing date, it doesn’t mean they’re simply going to go away at that time. In most jurisdictions a judgment creditor/collection agency can have the judgment re-filed or “revived” before it expires in the State of Illinois. Illinois law governs the time limit for enforcing judgment and states “no judgment shall be enforced after the expiration of 7 years from the time the same is rendered.” Still a judgment may be revived indefinitely, if the creditor petitions the court for the judgment’s revival in the 7th year after its last revival, and once again serve it on the debtor. When a judgment is entered, the creditor can have the debtor’s wages (25%) garnished along with the bank account. To avoid this, one, the debt should be settled and two, always have a second person added to your bank account. If it is shown to the judge that a second person is with you on the bank account, it will stop this garnishment.

Extreme weather needs Extreme skin care.

1 Avoid Sun : protect your skin from that big ball of fire up in the sky . Sunlight is harmful to the skin .protecting skin against UV damage is a year-round commitment. Accidental sun exposure -the kind experienced on a daily basis running about our life’s from one place to another —has a cumulative effect that results in premature aging of the skin And research suggests that a thick layer of broad-spectrum SPF may be just as important for those who are in a cubical as it is for those who spend their days hitting the slopes or taking snowy walks during winter . Apply sunscreen on 20 minutes before going outside reapply every 2 to 3 hours. 2 Clean your skin gently : Keep your skin clean so the skin has less chances of clogging and breath better.

Never sleep with makeup on . Don’t forget to treat it gently hot water removes oils , drying you out .dont take bath or shower longer then 15 minutes. Use mild , fragrance free soap . Without irritating or harsh chemicals . Always work gently around the eye area and neck as the skin is delicate around those areas. After washing your skin . Pat dry with paper towel to avoid any bacterial activity from wash clothes . Reusing the same wash cloth can be the hub for bacterial activity. Treat your skin as gentle as possible. Avoid tanning beds as it’s one of the most dangerous practices for the skin . Tanning also aids in premature aging of the skin beside health issues. 3.Tone , Hydrate , moisturize and sunscreen :Toner is your

best friend. Always use it to keeps the ph levels of the skin balanced . Helps to tighten the pores. Moisturizers works by keeping some water from escaping from your skin or by slowly releasing water in your skin . Hyaluronic acid based moisturizer or serum is really good for oily skin to keep it hydrated instead of using heavy ingredients based creams , sunscreen use can’t be emphasized enough . Always moisturize before applying makeup . Last but not the least skin is your largest organ so treat it with care and invest time in it as skin speaks volumes of how it has been taken cared of . “SKIN IS YOUR COVER PAGE MAKE IT COUNT!”

Have we lost our family focus this holiday? Last month we celebrated Christmas, but I bet a lot of people my age, baby boomers, will be thinking about how much more fun it was when we were younger than it is today. Christmas was a better holiday then because so much have changed since, not only in how we view the world but in how we view the holiday. I have a special fondness for Christmas, because my parents originate from the Holy Land. My dad is from Jerusalem and my mother is from Bethlehem. My mom worshipped at the Church of the Nativity, where Jesus was born. And my father worshipped at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus was crucified and entombed. Theirs and my ancestors lived in the Holy Land for generations, as far back as records allow us to look. So it is special, at least for me. There was a time when celebrating Christmas was a respectful event filled with a focus on the family and on our faith. Yet these days, the focus has shifted to a strategy for others to profit. It’s all about making money. It’s all about going to the store and spending our money. And it is all about possessions. I think sometimes we forget that Christmas is all about pausing from our life during the rest of the year when we focus on working, earning money, paying taxes, and paying the bills to focus on our families first and foremost. It’s also a time to focus on our faith. It doesn’t matter whether we were Christians, Muslims or Jews. The truth is most Muslims and Jews have the same deep feelings for their own religious beliefs and importance to family. I think they understand how the Christmas Holidays are not only a symbol for Christians but also for them, too. Christmas is a reminder that we can all celebrate our religious holidays and use those holidays to energize our commitment to our families.

By Ray Hanania

I know because my wife and son are Jewish and Christmas is more of a season for them when families come together. They just finished celebrating Hanukkah, the eight-day “Festival of Lights” that commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem. The story of Hanukkah is included in the Old Testament that Christians share. Muslims also enjoy a holiday season, although the timing comes sooner in their observance of Ramadan, a month-long period of fasting in which they commemorate the first revelation of the their religion, the Quran. Their faith recognizes the same biblical history and prophets of Jews and Christians. What brings Christians, Muslims and Jews together os that we all have our holidays of faith and we are all free to worship in our own ways. They are reminders to all of us that while we are different, we are similar, too, in many more ways than we think. These holidays symbolize our faith, and are supposed to be the lynchpins of family. That’s what the holidays mean to me. Family. When I was young, the Christmas Tree and even the presents were not the focus but rather a part of the family gathering, given as a means of strengthening the family. We didn’t look at others as being different. We looked at others as being the same. They shared the same experience of family-focused gathering through their faith, too. These days, the focus seems to have shifted to the money, the spending, and the “gifts.” It’s all about profit. We all need to change that. Instead of spending all that money on gifts, spend more time with your family. I can promise you that investment will bring you more than the abundance of gifts that often end up gathering dust in a closet. Merry Christmas, everyone, whether you are Christians, Muslims or Jews.
