“Couples are wholes and not wholes, what agrees disagrees, the concordant is discordant. From all things one and from one all things.” - Heraclitus
ong before Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, before Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, even before Prince William and Kate Middleton, there were famous couples that captured our attention. What makes them so interesting? Is it because they represent a fantasy that we each wish we could fulﬁll? Maybe the media has a hand in making their lives seem so much more appealing than our own. Or perhaps it has more to do with our morbid curiosity about when these relationships will crash and burn… and how bad the fallout from such a breakup will be. Whatever the true motivation behind our obsession with famous couples, we can’t deny the attraction!

KING EDWARD VIII AND WALLIS SIMPSON
Famous Couples... Continued from Page 1
“Hormones Can Cause Female Facial Hair” To Your Good Health... 6
You might assume that anyone in line for the role of King of England would be ecstatic about the power and control he would wield. But not King Edward VIII. It’s said that even from a very young age, he came to despise all the pomp and circumstance surrounding his royal status. That’s not to say that his title didn’t land him several different love interests, albeit married ones.
This couple needs no introduction. Antony and Cleopatra’s love affair is wellknown and is even echoed in William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” And why wouldn’t their story be intriguing? Cleopatra VII was the last Pharaoh of Egypt and Marc Antony was a Roman general. She was very smart, said to have been very beautiful and devoted to her faith. Naturally, Antony fell for her. But there were a couple of obstacles he would need to dodge in order to have her all to himself.
Prince Edward, as he was titled before he inherited the throne, maintained relationships with two other married women before meeting Simpson. He met Mrs. Winifred “Freda” Dudley Ward in 1918 when he was 23. She had already been married for five years but that didn’t matter to either she or the Prince. They had a 16-year affair.
First off, she was married to her younger brother Ptolemy, which was customary for the time. She was also the mistress of Julius Caesar, another Roman general. But apparently Antony’s skills far surpassed those of either of Cleopatra’s other men and even though it became the talk of the town in Rome, the couple married in 36 B.C.
He also had a rather long affair with Viscountess Thelma Furness. It was actually at her party that the prince met Simpson and her husband, Ernest. Although Prince Edward and Wallis’s affair didn’t begin immediately upon their meeting, it was only four short months later that she became a VIP guest at his parties.
Using their combined skillsets, the couple planned to take over Rome. Roman general Octavian wasn’t about to let that happen and in 31 B.C., he divided and conquered the couple during the battle of Actium. Now here’s the Shakespearean part: Antony was told that Cleopatra was dead so he fell on his sword, killing himself. Cleopatra, who was not in fact dead, found out about Antony’s suicide and pestered a poisonous snake (an asp to be precise) to bite her, resulting in her death as well.
Prince Edward became King Edward VIII at five minutes to midnight on Jan. 20, 1936. When faced with an ultimatum of either ending his affair with Simpson or give up his throne in order to keep his government happy, King Edward VIII chose to abdicate. On Dec. 10, 1936, King Edward VIII signed the abdication papers and his brother Albert took the throne as King George VI instead. Edward was given the title of Duke and after Simpson’s divorce was finalized, he married her on June 3, 1937.

By 1934, both Freda and Thelma were cut from Prince Edward’s life as he focused his attention on Simpson. But let’s not forget that she was a Mrs., not a Ms. with one divorce already to her name. In 1916, she married Lt. Earl Winfield “Win” Spencer but filed for a divorce after Win became increasingly abusive. Her divorce was granted in 1927 and in July 1928, Wallis married Ernest Simpson.

action movies. There were shoot-outs and fast driving and jail breaks and (of course) a love story mixed in for good measure. But their story doesn’t end with “… and they lived happily ever after.” The pair met in January 1930 and things were far from perfect. Bonnie was married to Roy Thornton who was in prison serving a five-year sentence for robbery. Clyde had already been in trouble with the authorities for stealing. Those crimes caught up to him just a few weeks after meeting Bonnie and he was sentenced to two years in prison. But the crafty Bonnie smuggled a gun in and Clyde used it to escape. After a week of freedom, Clyde was once again put in jail but this time it was a 14-year term he was to spend at the Eastham Prison Farm near Weldon, Texas. Hoping to earn a transfer from Eastham, he convinced another inmate to chop off some of his toes. His two missing toes didn’t earn Clyde a transfer but he was released early and on Feb. 2, 1932, he was a free man yet again. Everyone began feeling desperate thanks to the Great Depression that settled over the country, so Bonnie and Clyde resorted to robbery to get money to survive. While Bonnie was in jail for her part in a robbery of a hardware store, Clyde and Raymond Hamilton
(an on-again off-again member of the Barrow Gang) attempted another robbery in April 1932. Although the crime was supposed to be quick and easy, Clyde and Hamilton hit a snag and the store’s owner, John Bucher, was shot and killed.
New Designer, Vintage Couture and Fair Trade
This marked the start of the couple’s two-year crime spree spanning five states, that involved kidnapping, robbery, auto theft and an alleged 13 murders. They often lived out of one of the many vehicles they stole in order not to be recognized. Their crimes earned them a notorious reputation and ultimately death in a massive police ambush in Louisiana on May 23, 1934.

• Sometimes a tip isn’t about saving time or money, but about a cleaner, healthier solution to a problem. Going green is a trend that’s here to stay. And the wisdom of yesteryear is popping up all over the place. For instance, want beautiful highlights? Get a lemon and get out in the sun. Use the juice to dampen strands of your hair, then as you are out in the sun, they will lighten -- no chemicals, au natural!
Cliff and Claire Huxtable The fictitious couple starring in “The Cosby Show” were by far one of the most successful television couples, maintaining great careers and raising five kids…and debuting some amazing sweaters.
• Sunburn can be soothed with plain vinegar. For the back, arms or legs, soak a washcloth in room temperature vinegar and lay it on the affected area for 15 minutes, then rinse. For the face, soak a cotton ball and lightly dab on burned areas. -- I.E. in California
The cartoon couple appearing in “The Simpsons,” the pair is an exaggerated stereotype of the typical American family but with a contract to complete 559 episodes (at last count), they struck a memorable cord with children and adults alike.

While their marriage and divorce in 1939 and then remarriage in 1940 was extremely tumultuous, their love was undeniable and only served to bring notoriety to both Rivera and Kahlo as important artists of the time.

Well-renowned artists in their own rights, Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo met when Kahlo was an art student, hoping to garner advice from the muralist who was 20 years her senior. The pair fell in love and married in 1929.

taking them. The drug plans are broken into four categories, or tiers:
Lowest co-pay: generic drugs
CHOOSING THE RIGHT MEDICARE DRUG PLAN
hoosing a drug plan through Medicare (called Part D) can be something of a guessing game. If you want to change plans or are just about to sign up, the choices can be confusing. Here are a few things to know:
Medium co-pay: preferred brandname prescription drugs (Preferred means that it’s what Medicare prefers you take.) Higher co-pay: brand-name drugs
Specialty tier: highest unique, high-cost drugs
Before you sign up for any drug plan, get all your information. Go online to medicare.gov, click on Forms, then Publications, then type 11136 in the search box for the drug plan fact sheet. Then do another search for “Part D” for a long list of publications.
Your regular pharmacy might not be in a “network” that your plan covers. You’ll have to go to another pharmacy for your drugs to be covered, a “preferred” pharmacy that has agreed to charge less, per your plan.
Best bet: If you can afford a plan that lets you use your regular neighborhood pharmacy, do so. If it has a pharmacist that you trust, he or she can keep an eye on all the drugs you are taking, to make sure there are no interactions.
Even if your drug is on your plan’s list, it might not be in the future. Plan providers have 60 days to notify you that it won’t be available. You’ll need to have your doctor ask for an exception, or you’ll need to change drugs, or you’ll need to pay more to keep

Walking Through Fire: Art as Prayer Retreat
Where does mankind’s need to work come from? It comes from his Creator. The Bible says, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” (Genesis 2:15). It does not say, “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to play golf!” So Coach Lombardi and the Lord God both understood the principle of work: work is good for the soul; work yields proﬁt. If you’ve been complaining because all you do is work, you’re much better off than the person who has no work to do. Writer Victor Hugo said, “Idleness is the heaviest of all oppressions.” While it’s true that hard work does not always equal proﬁt or result in success, it is true that nothing signiﬁcant is ever accomplished without hard work. So if you want your life to mean something and you want to move yourself from poverty to prosperity, here’s your Kick in the Pants: Get to work. Find a job.
If you want to be enshrined in any Hall of Fame, you might want to consider Coach Lombardi’s quote and consider work one the most signiﬁcant keys to your personal success. You say, “Ya, but there ain’t no good paying jobs out there.” I didn’t say, An acquaintance of mine worked “Get a good paying job.

MOMENTS IN TIME THE HISTORY CHANNEL
â€˘ On July 24, 1567, during her imprisonment at Lochleven Castle in Scotland, Mary Queen of Scots is forced to abdicate in favor of her 1-year-old son, later crowned King James VI of Scotland. In 1542, while just 6 days old, Mary had ascended to the Scottish throne upon the death of her father, King James V. â€˘ On July 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln informs his chief advisers and cabinet that he will issue a proclamation to free slaves, but that he will wait until the Union Army has achieved a substantial military victory. The Emancipation Proclamation had less to do with ending slavery than saving the crumbling union. â€˘ On July 23, 1918, Della Sorenson kills the first of her seven victims in Nebraska. Over the next seven years, friends, relatives and acquaintances of Sorenson died under mysterious circumstances. In 1925, Sorenson was arrested when she made an unsuccessful attempt at killing two children with poisoned cookies.
â€˘ On July 28, 1929, President John F. Kennedyâ€™s wife, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, is born into a prominent New York family. In 1951, she began her first job as the Washington Times-Heraldâ€™s â€œInquiring Camera Girl,â€? roaming the streets of Washington, D.C., and asking â€œman on the streetâ€? questions.

SNIPPETZ WEEKLY MAGAZINE ®
THE TALE OF TWO OPERATIONAL STAIRCASES By Nick Yanez
Imagine for a moment you are a small child. Your parents have just taken you out for a pretty neat pizza dinner and you’re sitting in the back seat, headed home. Your birthday is tomorrow. You’re really excited, but disappointed that you weren’t allowed to have a party with your friends this year. Instead, family is in town and you’re all going to go to the Go-Kart track. This sounds awesome, but you still wish you were going to have the traditional party with your classmates. You pull up in your driveway wondering what you’ll do tonight. The excitement for tomorrow is quite overwhelming, so anything tonight will likely be a letdown. You walk into the house behind your Mother. When coming in the door you wonder - why are the lights off? Suddenly the room lights up and what looks like a sea of thousands of people jump from behind every corner and yell “surprise!”. Wasn’t that the best? Don’t you wish you could recapture those glorious moments of utter shock you had as a child? It gets hard to do these days. Not only are we older and less susceptible to foolery, but we also have learned that anything is possible. In a day and age when any new piece of technology is conceivable, we sometimes forget the simple element of getting caught off guard. I’ve personally written about several strange stories and new inventions that have the potential to shock you. But in all likelihood, you just raise an eyebrow, read through, and say something along the lines of - eh, doesn’t surprise me anymore. Which is
why this week, I’m trying the opposite approach. I’m going to take you to a place where advanced technologies are nothing but imaginary props for science fiction. The place is Wyoming. Weird fact of the week - did you know that there are only two escalators in the entire state of Wyoming? Surprise! It’s true. The same escalators that we see everyday; we have four in Chapel Hill Mall alone. Through all of the strange stories I’ve reported here, I think this one baffled me the most. How is this even possible. What’s better is a story recently written on the matter by a reporter (The world’s most notable escalator reporter, actually). Here’s an excerpt of her fascination with the moving stairs in Wyoming: “The shiny silver steps appear, seemingly from nowhere, and take the traveler to the building’s second level. Then, after the traveler has completed his or her second floor business, the escalator delivers the traveler safely back on the first floor.” -Megan Lee She also importantly noted the escalators being a wonderful and popular attraction for children. They and their parents can ride the escalator during business hours of the First National Bank and/or Hilltop National Bank, both located in Casper. Convenient how all two of the futuristic moving staircases are located in government buildings. Talk about spending tax dollars on useless silly technology gimmicks. While this week’s story may seem irrelevant to the big picture (of your life) it speaks volumes about how much we take for granted. So the next time I tell you about a new aquatic submarine that also serves as an ice cream truck, show a little enthusiasm. Some of us, even here in America, are not spoiled with such flashy electronics. You’d be surprised by how much we don’t appreciate.

THE REAL TRUTH ABOUT
onosodium glutamate, commonly known as MSG, is used as a flavor enhancer in many recipes. It’s made from starch, corn sugar or molasses from sugar cane or sugar beets. MSG is produced through a natural fermentation process, much like that used to make beer, vinegar or yogurt. There’s a lot of controversy -- both pro and con -- about using MSG. The following information may help you decide that you want to start using MSG in your dishes. MSG is the sodium salt of glutamate. Glutamate is an amino acid essential for metabolism and brain function and is manufactured by the body. It occurs naturally in almost every protein-containing food we eat -- foods such as cheese, milk, mushrooms, meat, fish and many vegetables like tomatoes. When MSG is added to foods, it provides a similar flavoring function as the glutamate that occurs naturally.
The MSG added to food is handled in the body the same way as natural glutamate found in foods. MSG contains only onethird of the sodium as table salt and is used in much smaller amounts. When MSG is used with table salt, it actually can help reduce the total amount of sodium by 20 percent to 40 percent. In addition, MSG can be helpful to the elderly, who may experience a decline in smell and taste. Adding MSG may make eating more enjoyable for older adults. Some people feel they are sensitive to MSG, and attribute headaches and other symptoms to eating it. However, current research has not found a link between MSG and these reactions. MSG is safe for consumption, as stated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. It is even safe for infants, as human breast milk contains glutamate. Flavoring your dishes with MSG can enhance their taste. As a general guideline, about half a teaspoon of MSG per pound of meat or per four to six servings of vegetables should be sufficient. Overall, MSG helps make good food taste even better.

It’s all because of a bang on the head suffered by art dealer Simon (James McAvoy) during the heist. The gangster in charge of the robbery (Vincent Cassel) hires a gorgeous hypnotist (Rosario Dawson) to delve into Simon’s mind and find out where he stashed the painting.

truth all start to twist as each scene adds another layer of intrigue. Written and directed by Danny Boyle (creative force behind “Slumdog Millionaire”), “Trance” will keep your attention, despite all the confusion. Boyle is an accomplished director who deploys visual spectacle with care. Even with a story so murky, Boyle is able to make all of the head-scratching pay off. “Ginger and Rosa” (PG-13) -- This 1960s coming-of-age drama makes a stark contrast with the one discussed above: this one is actually good. In 1962 London, Ginger (Elle Fanning) and Rosa (Alice Englert) are teenagers and best friends. Ginger becomes involved in the ban-the-bomb movement, and she becomes fixated on fixing the looming threat of nuclear war. Rosa is more interested in boys and church -- an odd combination, but this is a movie about people who are on the edge of self-awareness. Interesting conflicts and characters arise, all
orbiting around a stellar performance from Fanning. “Welcome to the Punch” (R) -- This is another British crime thriller starring James McAvoy, but unlike “Trance” discussed above, this one is not good. In a world where all lights must be blue-filtered and constantly swinging around, a cop (McAvoy) and criminal mastermind Jacob Sternwood (Marc Strong) foster a deadly grudge. The game is stepped up when Jacob’s son is shot. This movie sure loves its gunplay, but doesn’t know what to do with it. The excitement-per-bullet factor is disturbingly low for a movie with so much bangbang.
DOG OF THE WEEK
“Love and Honor” (PG-13) -- Two soldiers in the Vietnam War make a trip back to the United States while they’re on leave -- one of them needs to check up on his girlfriend, and the other one (Liam Hemsworth) is going along for the laughs. However, it’s 1969, and now everyone under the age of 35 is a
hippie (that’s how it happened, right?) The first guy’s girlfriend isn’t his anymore, and Hemsworth hooks up with a cute, anti-war blonde (Teresa Palmer) because he made up a story about being AWOL. The script, I strongly suspect, must have been written by a lovesick 13-year-old after watching “Forrest Gump.” Occasionally, a character makes some kind of heavy-handed speech. It’s nobody’s idea of good drama -- watching attractive people joylessly recite whatever bland nonsense they were told to memorize.

Vital news emerges by the weekend. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Once again, the Bovine’s patience pays off as that pesky problem works itself out without taking too much of your valuable time.

There’ll be time later to put your ideas into a workable format. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be sure about your sources before you use the information in any decision you reach about your new project. Some of the data might be out of date or misinterpreted.

There’ll be time later to take the bolder course. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A step-by-step progression is the better way to move ahead. Taking shortcuts could be risky at this time. Important news arrives on the 31st. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Avoid getting drawn into workplace disputes that should be handled by those directly involved. Instead, spend your energy developing those new ideas. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You still need to be prudent about money matters. But things start to ease by the end of the week. A weekend encounter with an old friend brings welcome news. BORN THIS WEEK: You handle challenging situations with boldness when necessary and caution when called for.

This has begun to change, although it is still a work in progress. While any owner still has the right, as the owner of a lot in a community subject to an HOA, to bring private legal action to protect himself or his lot, the State of Colorado now provides some assistance with reining in rogue HOAs.
THE LAW ACCORDING TO STEVENS by Lisa Welch Stevens, Attorney at Law P.C.
Lisa Welch Stevens Attorney at Law, P.C.
Admitted to Colorado State Bar and U.S. Federal Bar for the District of Colorado
IF AN HOA IS A FOX, IS ANYONE WATCHING THE HENHOUSE? © July, 2013, Lisa Welch Stevens, Attorney at Law P.C.
ast week I discussed the (few) legal limits on the power of HOAs to control the lots located within their communities, and the owners of those lots. If you think of the community as a henhouse – with the lots as the nests within it, and the owners as the chickens – and the HOA as the fox, you may wonder: “Is anyone watching this henhouse, to protect it against this fox?” The answer, until fairly recently was no: owners’ only recourse against an out-of-control HOA was to bring a lawsuit against that HOA; in other words, each chicken had to take protect itself, either only or by banding together with some of the other chickens.
Answers & Solutions
First, effective January 1, 2011, most HOAs (very small HOAs are exempted) were required to register with the HOA Information Ofﬁce of the Division of Real Estate of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies. This makes it very easy for an owner to look up his HOA, ﬁnd out how many “units” (lots) are subject to the HOA, the type of HOA it is, and the name, address, and telephone numbers of the point of contact for the HOA. An owner can also obtain the HOA’s Colorado Secretary of State identiﬁcation number, and then look up on the COSOS website additional information about the HOA – such as who the registered agent is if he wants to serve the HOA with a lawsuit. HOAs are subject to ﬁnes if they do not register.

authority, it can assist owners in answering questions regarding HOAs, what they can and cannot do, and how to take legal action to protect themselves. The HOA uses the information obtained from registered complaints to compile an annual report, which can be used by the legislature to revise laws regarding HOAs.
This article is intended for general informational purposes only, and does not constitute the proffer of n addition, there are legislative legal advice.

action in the courts, a very time consuming and expensive process. Beginning with the 2010 legislative session this has been changing, and the state has slowly begun to do something to protect the chickens from the fox.

LIVING GOD’S GIFTS bringing Christ into your financial life
INVESTING FROM A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
by Chuck Maher, CFP®
...BRING CHRIST INTO OUR FINANCIAL LIVES
imes are tough for the income focused investor and the situation is not likely to improve in the foreseeable future. Interest rates are low. For savings and money market accounts the rates are slightly above zero. Certificates of deposit are yielding a bit more but still well below the current rate of inflation. For those who are dependent upon the income produced by their investments it might be a good time to look at some alternatives for income.
Diversified Bond Funds Diversified bond funds are just that –diversified. Unlike traditional bond mutual funds that limit their investment selection to a single sector of the market, i.e. US government bonds, these funds can invest in a variety of bond types, anywhere in the world. It is not uncommon to find emerging market bonds, high-yield bonds and bonds that are non-dollar-denominated in these funds. Because of that diversification, these funds can oftentimes produce a higher dividend income than traditional bond funds and tend to be less volatile when interest rates rise.
Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) For the income investor REITs create an opportunity to invest in income producing real estate in a manner similar to the way bonds or stocks can be invested in through a mutual fund. REITs can invest in a variety of different property types including shopping malls, apartment buildings, medical facilities, office buildings, hotels, cell towers and even timberland. In addition to investment diversification REITs can also provide geographic diversification. For the investor seeking income, REITs often can produce a higher rate of return than most fixed interest investments and have the potential for capital appreciation.
Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) In much the same way that REITs create income opportunities for investors in real estate, MLPs create opportunities for income by investing in the energy infrastructure of our country. Energy infrastructure assets include crude oil, petroleum products, and natural gas pipelines, tanks, terminals, and storage facilities. Like REITs, MLPs distribute a high percentage of their after tax earnings as dividend income to their investors and have the potential for capital appreciation.

Dividend Paying Stocks There are a number of stock mutual funds that emphasize dividend income. These funds tend to invest throughout the world in high quality companies that have a history of strong dividend growth. For the income focused investor who can accept the market fluctuations that come with owning stock there is the potential to earn not only a reasonable current income but also an income that may well increase over time. Stocks, especially those paying dividends, have historically proven to be a safe haven in times of inflation. Unlike CDs, passbook savings and money market accounts, bonds, REITs, MLPs and dividend paying stocks come with no guarantees. There is no FDIC insurance and each brings with it its own set of risks. Is it worth it? That depends on your unique situation. I would encourage you to meet with your financial advisor, review your income goals and decide if any of these options just might make life a little bit easier. “The plans of the diligent are sure of profit, but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty.” Proverbs 21:5 Chuck Maher is a Certified Financial PlannerTM practitioner specializing in Christian values based financial planning and investing.
