Stellar Astrology for August 2010
Rated 5.0 Stars
You're the star of the zodiac, Leo, as the sun shines down on your sign. You'll be able to advance your own interests and shine in the eyes of others while doing so. On the 9th, a new moon in Leo infuses you with charm and plenty of magnetic appeal. You'll be awfully hard to refuse on this day so go after what you want. Ditto on the 24th. On the 26th, those in power back you up and you'll feel self-empowered by this recognition. Have a Happy Birthday! More »

Surprise Cookies
I love surprises. The littlest, simplest things easily make me jump for joy and break out in song. An extra shot of espresso from my barista, a good book, and even ridiculous things, like getting a new BPA-free water bottle from Target or exploring Bed, Bath and Beyond for the first time.

How to Create CDs From Your Old Tapes and Albums
Not too long ago I was in my living room, hanging out with an old high school friend. We sat in rapt attention listening to old albums from a local band. I can't tell you how much enjoyment I got out of listening to those oldies. However, albums and for that matter, cassettes, don't last forever and my friend said to me out of the blue, "Why don't you just burn CDs from those albums? Then you won't have to worry about scratching or losing them?"
