Zodiac Fun

 (March 21 - April 19)
Deny everything.

 (April 20 - May 20)
In an unfortunate turn of events, someone sitting across from you will have a peculiar variant of a bad hair day...a bad nosehair day.

 (May 21 - June 20)
Today you will receive a gift horse. Unfortunately, it will have a really horrendous case of gingivitis.

 (June 21 - July 22)
You are sad about an upcoming event, but can do nothing about it. Try knitting -- people say it's wonderfully relaxing.

 (July 23 - August 22)
Beware the Ides of March. Also, if you have a friend named "Brutus", it might behoove you to be a trifle more selective...

 (August 23 - September 22)
Try being entirely honest for a week. That's a fine way to develop a clear conscience. Personally, I prefer my method, though -- a poor memory.

 (September 23 - October 22)
Someone will ask you for your advice. Don't give it! Or if they insist, simply shake your head solemnly, and mutter "Much bad juju", and refuse to clarify. They only want a scapegoat.

 (October 23 - November 21)
Try to think of life as a game, today. For fun, make up new rules.

 (November 22 - December 21)
Despite your best efforts, you will be unable to get your book published. But all you really need to do is change the title! "A Comparative Study of Invertibrate Parasites" is not likely to be published. But "A Bucket Full Of Leeches"? Now that's another story.

 (December 22 - January 20)
It will turn out that someone you spend a great deal of time with is actually one of the last remaining Sinanthropus (Peking man), rather than an actual Cro-Magnon. This will explain things you'd been wondering about.

 (January 21 - February 18)
You will invent a cool machine that will automatically make over 800 different varieties of coffee drinks. Unfortunately, everyone will go back to drinking just plain coffee.

 (February 19 - March 20)
Something will start to bother you, and you will eventually have to ask someone to explain it. The thing is, some birds have very acute hearing - so WHERE ARE THEIR EARS??

Poem : Strong Woman

 A Strong Woman
is one who feels deeply 
and loves fiercely 
Her tears flow 
just as abundantly 
as her laughter 

A Strong Woman 
is both soft and powerful 
She is both 
practical and spiritual
A Strong Woman
in her essence 
is a gift to all the world

The After Effects of First Love

First love can be joyful, passionate and intense, but if you’re looking for happiness in later life, it’s best to avoid it altogether, says a new research. In a book related to the subject, a collection of new research papers by Britain’s leading sociologists, edited by Dr Malcolm Brynin, principal research officer at the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex, the claims have been made. 

According to Brynin, the euphoria of puppy love can damage future relationships, reports a daily. “Remarkably, it seems that the secret to longterm happiness in a relationship is to skip a first relationship,” said Brynin. “In an ideal world, you would wake up already in your second relationship,” the expert said. 

While searching for the ingredients of successful long-term partnerships, Brynin found that intense first loves could set unrealistic benchmarks, against which we judge future relationships. “If you had a very passionate first relationship and allow that feeling to become your benchmark for a relationship dynamic, then it becomes inevitable that future, more adult partnerships will seem boring and a disappointment,” he said. 

Adults in successful long-term partnerships are those who have taken a calm, pragmatic view of what they need from a relationship, Brynin found. “The problems start if you try not only to get everything you need for an adult relationship, but also strive for the heights of excitement and intensity you had in your first experience of love. The solution is clear: if you can protect yourself from intense passion in your first relationship, you will be happier in your later relationships,” he said.
