Mom’s sadistic jokes may signal mental problem
Tuesday, September 25, 2012
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2012 Take the necessary time in the year ahead to closely examine things that have proven to be unfulfilling. Until you rid yourself of your albatrosses, you are likely to remain way off track. There will be nothing to gain but more encumbrances. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Succumbing to instant gratification could be one of your biggest problems. You are likely to regret it if you spend more than you should on a whim of the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Unless you want to turn your household into a camp with several warring factions, be careful not to bring up any controversial issues. You’ll only have yourself to blame if war breaks out. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Shelve, at least for the next few days, certain tasks you find to be distasteful. Any jobs you perform under a cloud will have to be redone in the near future. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Generally, you are a rather prudent and cautious person when it comes to your financial affairs. Know now that the day could tempt you to take some unwise financial risks. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t let your ego dominate your common sense in ways that make you feel that you’ll lose face if you aren’t No. 1 at all times. Overwhelming pride is self-defeating. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Although normally your intuition is exceptionally reliable and can be helpful in giving you great insight, pride could override it and lead you far astray. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -It’s nice to do someone a favor, but be careful that you don’t unwittingly let it take money out of your pocket, unless, of course, the recipient is someone near and dear and you don’t mind doing so. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Being hasty or impulsive when putting plans together or deciding an important issue with another will weaken your position, not improve it. Give your ideas the time they deserve. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Taking on an assignment that is way over your head is not only downright foolish, it could be harmful. You might end up having a tough time crawling out of the hole you put yourself in. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Once you start to point out the faults of your friends, no matter how well intended you are, your popularity might take a huge hit. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If your tastes are totally different from your mate’s, it’s best not to make any expensive purchases without the input of your better half. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Think before opening your mouth, especially when making an appraisal of another’s efforts. If you can’t be tactful, don’t say anything at all.

On the website were explicit instructions from the couple saying they’d like the donation made prior to the wedding so they could plan ahead. The website fund is broken down into specific items ($20 for breakfast in bed, $80 for a couple’s massage or $100 toward a down payment on a house). All I had to do was click “donate here.” Am I old-fashioned, or is it still considered tacky to tell your guests that you want money (and only money) and ask for it in advance? If I donate online, do I still give a card to the couple at the wedding? I’ve asked a few younger people about this, and it sounds as if such things are becoming more commonplace. Please rush your answer so I can donate early.
