It’s tax day! What’s your stress level? If your taxes were turned in by February, congratulations, for the rest or us: “Keep calm and carry on.” April can be a nerve-wracking time of year. It’s also beautiful, the trees are blooming and birds are chirping. This is an exciting time. Spring is here. Madame G suggests...

There is a tremendous effort put forth by water systems all over the country to provide safe and clean water to their customers.  Of course upsets and mistakes do happen.

Flint Michigan is a horrendous example of how not to do it.  But individual families can provide a firewall at their kitchen sinks to stop any contaminants that might get that far.

The first filter is a particle filter that removes any particles that are still in the water.  The second filter is an activated carbon filter that removes items that can cause taste or odor...

The resignation of Rick Snider, the city’s general services director until April 8, is a big loss for the city. Love him or hate him, Snider leaves behind some big shoes to fill.

The Chicago native came to the city five years ago initially to manage Gallup’s customer care center as the deputy director of information technology.

Lately, though, most know Snider as the guy who oversees operations at the historic El Morro Theatre and the Downtown Events Center.

Snider deserves credit for doing...

As you finish up loose ends and projects that have been lingering and causing stress, don’t forget to look ahead. Lau Tzu said: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” What is your first step? Will you arise early everyday to work out? Perhaps you wish to start your own business and have already started planning. Madame G suggests chasing your dreams with the first step before time eludes you. Go now!

Aries (March 21-April 19)



Are you lonely? Sometimes, life appears unfair and forces us to evaluate who we are, whether we want to or not. If you’ve never tried to be alone now is a good time. Develop those skills you believe are lacking. You don’t have to spend...
