Dashing through the snow…Or not. Here in New Mexico, the idea of a “White Christmas” is hit or miss — of course, snow does happen. Regardless of holiday blankets of white, though, snow doesn’t necessarily mean you’re having a good time. Madame G recommends instead of following someone else’s idea of a good Christmas or life, why don’t you make up your own version. I bet yours is better anyway.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re not perfect and the world is going to disappoint you. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. You also don’t have to lower your standards. You can maintain a high standard of excellence for yourself and still exert the least amount effort...

Enjoy the Cold Full Moon Dec. 22. This wonderful event takes place before Yule Tide and there can be no doubt as to why it’s called the “cold moon.” But if you’re observant, you’ll notice the beauty of every season, every day and in every moment. Madame G wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Bundle up and enjoy the cold weather.

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Shake it off! You’re not responsible for how others react to you, work on yourself and move on.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You may want to take a step back and assess the situation. Don’t assume you know what’s best for everyone. You might be right, but that doesn’t mean anyone will thank you if...

Nothing new in the diet universe

I arrived at my favorite eatery for seasonal cinnamon pancakes with cream cheese frosting. Yum. As I started to enjoy the tantalizing taste on my tongue, a middle-aged couple seated at the next table blabbed on and on about weight loss and dieting. Blah. Blah. Blah. “Stop already!” I wanted to shout.

Journalist Gina Kolata penned a 2018 article for the New York Times where she surmised, “You’d think that scientists at an international conference on obesity would know by now which diet is best, and why. As it turns out, even the experts still have widely divergent opinions.”

On Nov. 14, an international scientific conference featuring world-renowned experts in the field of...
