Page 34 What 29/1/2015 Puzz

By Jacqueline Biga
Happy birthday for Friday, Jan. 30, 2015: This
year you go back and forth between being practical
and emotional. People in your life might not be sure
which personality will appear. Just go with the flow,
and you will feel energized. If you are single, others
find your energy appealing. You will have to sort
through what might seem to be a flock of suitors.
Enjoy the process. If you are attached, your sweetie
could act as if you are new lovers as the intensity
between you keeps building. You will want plenty of
quality time together, and you’ll need to plan for
those special times. CANCER is a natural nurturer.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1Difficult
Capricorn - (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
**** You might decide to move forward with a
project that has been on the back burner. A partner
could share a lot with you to encourage you to move
on this matter. Communication could be powerful if
you remain open. Tonight: Say “yes” to an offer that
is irresistible.
Aquarius - (Jan
20 - Feb 18)
**** You could be on top of what you are doing
if you would relax and go with the flow of the
moment. At this point, structuring plans might be
futile, as there is a strong likelihood you will need to
change them anyway. A loved one is lucky for you.
Tonight: Around good music.
Pisces - (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
***** You’ll feel very cared about as a loved
one demonstrates his or her feelings. You could find
yourself in an unusual, creative situation. Right now,
you need to follow your instincts. Your deep feelings
are right-on. Tonight: Let your imagination rock and
home decor
Aries - (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
*** You’ll wake up with a smile and wear it
throughout the day. You could discover that a very
combative friend seems to be demanding changes in
areas that you would prefer stay the same.
Explaining the wisdom of your ways might be
important. Tonight: Be spontaneous.
Taurus - (Apr 20 - May 20)
**** You rarely exaggerate, yet your words will
have a loud, extravagant quality to them. A friend at
a distance could be far more provocative than you
originally had thought. You might have second
thoughts about inviting this person into your life.
Tonight: Join friends for TGIF!
Gemini - (May 21 - June 20)
*** Before you act, you might need to evaluate
your thoughts and needs. Make yourself aware of
the financial implications of a potential change. Talk
to someone who understands your situation and has
more knowledge than you on the subject at hand.
Tonight: Say “yes.”
Cancer - (June 21 - July 22)
**** You tend to go to extremes emotionally and
financially. Be sure you can handle the implications
of pursuing a dream before you take off. A friend
might encourage you to take a hard look at what you
are about to do. Tonight: Have an important discussion.
Leo - (July 23 - Aug 22)
*** You might feel the need for more privacy.
Schedule time with a friend or loved one whom you
enjoy and can share your feelings with. Be willing to
shuffle your schedule around in order to suit your
indoor gardening
mood. You could be surprised by what happens.
Tonight: Play it low-key.
Scorpio - (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Virgo - (Aug 23 - Sept 22):
*** Tap into your imagination and distance yourself while seeking a solution to a difficult situation.
You could be surprised by what becomes evident as
a result. Avoid repeating yourself in a conversation
with a loved one or family member. Tonight: Go for
a change of pace!
**** Friends surround you. Even someone
whom you view as an acquaintance could indicate
that you are a friend to him or her. Wherever you go,
invitations head your way. Do your best to get into
weekend mode. Others seem to await your response.
Tonight: Where the gang is.
Libra - (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
**** You might want to switch gears and adapt
to a situation involving your personal life. You are
likely to have a lot of energy when completing certain tasks by a certain time. Lighten up, and know
which direction you are heading in. Tonight: Out
with your pals.

Sagittarius - (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
**** Be more forthright in your choices. You
know what you want. At a certain point, you must
act. You will feel better when you have committed to
a path. Use caution with a Scorpio today; this person
has a way of affecting you. Tonight: Love the one
you’re with.

Dear Abby
Seizure in class ‘prompts’
lesson on reaction for kids
By Abigail Van Buren
Dear Abby: Last week, I had a seizure in front of
my fourth-grade students. This has never happened to
me before, so I had never spoken to my students about
such a thing. I want to write them and their families a
letter expressing my apologies, thanking them for their
kind thoughts and giving basic advice on how to handle a seizure. Is this appropriate? If so, how do I start
the letter?
— Appropriate in New Jersey
Dear appropriate: Before writing the letter,
check with the principal of your school. Because
you now know that you are
prone to having seizures, I think
it makes sense that your students should know what one is,
and what to do in case it happens again in the classroom.
Some seizures can be almost
unnoticeable, while others can
be quite severe. If yours are
severe, a student should immediately inform another adult and
Abigail Van Buren ask for help.
P.S. While you may want to thank everyone for
their kindness, it should not be necessary to apologize to anybody for something you couldn't control.
Dear Abby: My daughter has always been very
independent. She had a normal childhood with the
usual friends and events, nothing traumatic that I
know of. She is a pretty girl with a funny personality
and is very bright.
The issue is, she is 18 and has been on only two
dates. She shows no interest in forming any sort of
romantic relationship. She has never had a boyfriend,
though many boys have expressed interest in her. The
two dates she did go on, one in high school and one in
college, she called "duds." She says she's not gay, and
has commented on good-looking guys. I don't know
what to think. Do you?
— Wondering mom
Dear wondering mom: You say your daughter
has always been independent. It's possible she
has enough self-assurance that she doesn't think
she needs a man in her life right now. It may also
be that before becoming emotionally involved with
anyone she would prefer to focus on her education or career path. Whatever her reasons, you
would be making a mistake to push her in any
direction she doesn't feel ready for, or make her
uncomfortable about being the way she is.
Dear Abby: Mom passed away five years ago, and
Dad died four months ago. For the last years of his life
Dad was hoping we'd move into their home. It's a
beautiful place in a country setting with lots of trees,
including pecan trees. We were undecided.
After Dad died, my husband and I were at home
making all the funeral arrangements and we were both
emotionally exhausted. While I tried to stay busy
inside the house, my husband decided to go outside to
clear his head. While walking around the yard, he
found a pecan in the grass! Abby, there are no pecan
trees in this entire neighborhood. We knew the rational answer was that a squirrel must have dropped it, but
in our hearts we felt it was Dad giving us the hug we
needed so badly, and his way of telling us that everything will work out.
We will be moving into my parents' home in the
near future.
— At peace in Louisiana
Dear at peace: There's nothing nutty about
your experience. Sometimes we just need a
nudge from above to guide us into doing what's
right for us. I wish you well in your new home.
Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also
known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by
her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los
Angeles, CA 90069.
