There ain’t no rest for the wicked! Human beings have a tendency to make predictions about their futures based on nothing more than a few tea leaves or even the musings of an astrological lady. However, this is not sound. Madame G recommends you work on being flexible. You never know what will happen in this crazy...

Bipartisan legislation aims to develop technologies to solve complex problems

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-NM, along with Senators Joni Ernst, R-Iowa; Angus King, I-Maine; and Cory Gardner, R-Colo., introduced bipartisan legislation to help improve veterans’ health care by increasing collaboration among federal agencies and authorizing the Department of Energy’s national laboratories, including Los Alamos National Laboratory, to develop technologies that solve complex data challenges.

For starters (spoiler alert) Santa Claus is an imaginary character—not real. The jolly guy in the goofy red suit is an American icon of popular culture. Although portrayed as magical—he’s mythical. The Santa story is a fabled fairy-tale—not true. A lavish legendary yarn. The roly-poly male with the white beard is a fictional character. Flying reindeer, a toy manufacturing center at the North Pole, and hardworking elves—not real. And Mrs. Claus is imaginary as well.

In this encounter, Jesus has reinstated Peter from being His...

After a glorious full moon Nov. 24, embrace the crazy (just in time for Black Friday) day. The unofficial start of consumer’s day (i.e. Christmas) is just waiting to mess up all your great budgeting plans. Madame G recommends you take time to reflect and give thanks. Now is the time to enjoy your family, friends and pets. Believe that tomorrow can be well. Good luck!

Aries (March 21-April 19)



Don’t stress. Take a deep breath and allow the wonderful cleansing breath into your body. All is well. Remember, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Repeat it for me, breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Good work! You can do this. Your family will...
