Your Weekly Horoscope
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22)
Changes in your home-life seem
a bit disrupti ve at the moment
however things will settle and the
whole famil y will benefit.
Whether it is at school or at wor k,
hard wor k and dedication will pay
off. Keep your eye on the goal.
Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20)
It’ll be difficult but bite your
tongue this week especially at the
wor kpl ace. Don’t jeopardize
possible advanc ements.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)
A hello, simple nod, or polite
smile from you goes along way
especi ally to the stranger whose
world is falling apart.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
Routine has returned and with
that comes time and energy for
you to enjoy what is i mportant to
you.
Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22)
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
By putting everyone els e in your
life “first”you tend to overlook
your own needs . It is crucial to
have time for yourself to reflect
on what is i mportant to you.
Stay neutral in office disputes or
thos e amongst friends. It’s the
onl y way to mai ntain healthy
relations hips and peac e of mi nd.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 20)
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
You may thi nk that things are at
they’re best now but be pr epar ed
for additional sur prises and unexpected delights.
Keeping things si mple around the
holidays will give you much
needed famil y ti me.
Cancer (Jun 21-Jul 22)
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
Keep an open mind and be patient. Over-reac tion may cause a
bad situation to get worse.
Don’tallow others to wal k all over
you. Take that muc h needed first
step to s how them that you are
important and deser ve to be
treated with love and res pect.
Someti mes it is easi er to l ook the
other way but remember in doi ng
so you may be turning your bac k
on s omeone who s ees you as
their only hope.

Dear Nellie,
My 14 year old son wants several video games for Christmas. We have two other
children and money is tight. Some of these games cost over $50.00. What should I
do?
Signed, Disappointed
Dear Disappointed,
There are several things that can be done regarding your situation and buying your
son all of these games is NOT one of them! I would figure out how much money you
are going to spend on each child. Sit your son down and explain budgets to him,
and that you and your husband are following a strict one this holiday. If for instance
you decide to spend $50.00 on each child, tell him he can pick a few older games that
have been reduced or settle for one of the newer and more expensive releases.
I would then try to teach him the value of the dollar because he obviously does not
quite understand this as of yet. Encourage him to get an after school job or perhaps
he can do chores around the house to earn some money. Teach him to budget and
be responsible for his money. You can tell him that if he is able to manage his money
he’ll not only be able to buy the games that he wants but will be able to save a little
as well. This is the perfect time of the year to teach him about the less fortunate and
how his requests can be considered a bit greedy and selfish.
If all this fails and he does not react the way you’
d expect him too, don’t get him any
games at all and hopefully then he will realize his poor judgement. Happy Holidays!
Regards, Nellie

A Big Thank You by Heather Polson
I wanted to send a “BIG THANK Y OU”to the v olunteers, v endors and businesses who donated
and to ev eryone who came out to support our family Halloween ev ent for the IWK in Monastery.
Our ev ent was originally booked for OCT 30th. Due to the bad storm we had to cancel.
We were able to make it happen the fallowing weekend NOV 6th.
I am so gratef ul for the over 300 people who came out to support a great cause. Ev en though we
were not able to have everything we had originally planned the event was a success!
I’
m so proud to say that we raised almost $1,300 f or the IWK !
My goal was to see how much of the community I could get inv olved to come together, do something very special for a great cause. It’
s amazing if you can just do something small or big in the
end together it becomes a BIG DEAL.
So thank y ou f rom the bottom of my heart for making my idea a reality. I am looking f orward to next
y ear although I think we’
ll hav e it in the summer! If you are interested in v ending, donating or just
being a part of our special day I’
d lov e to hear from y ou.
Thank y ou again,
- Heather Polson

3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 Tablespoon ground ginger
1/2 cup molasses
1 3/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves
until well blended. In a large mixer bowl beat butter, brown sugar, and egg on medi um speed until
well blended. Add the molasses and vanilla. Continue to mix until well blended. Gradually stir in dry
ingredients until dough is smooth. Divide dough in half and wrap each half in plastic. Let stand at
room temperature for at least 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Place 1 half of the divided dough on a floured surface. Roll dough to a little over 1/4"
thickness. Flour your work surface and rolling pin as needed to keep the dough from sticking. Cut out
cookies with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2" apart on prepared cookie sheet. Bake one sheet of
cookies at a time for 7-9 minutes, do not overbake. Cookies firm up after cooling. Remove cookie
sheet from oven and allow the cookies to cool until firm enough to move to a wire rack. Decorate your
ginger bread men with icing, candies, or colored sugar when fully cooled.
