And now well follow them on their many vacation adventures as if they are real family. To let you in on a secret, the Blueberry Patch is about as much a hippy place as these TV stars were real rednecks. The Patch appears hippy-like with the Peace, Love, Blueberries theme, and the CMT stars appear redneckish with their really we were all very similar in music, beer, food, friends, and some colorful decorations and all of the sudden Hippy and Redneck become hip hoppers, old folks, youngsters, goths, hillbillies, left wing, right wing, rich, poor, nerds, preps, aliens, animals, and so on, and you have a pure Blueberry Patch (and Gulfport) The TV show will air on February 2nd at 9 p.m. on CMT (Channel 45 or 1314 HD on BrightHouse Cable).Stetson to offer Information Sessions Stetson University College of Law is hosting part-time law school information sessions in January, February and March for prospective law students who wish to learn more about the admissions process.

26 Gabber January 31 February 6, 2013 By Holiday Mathis The astrological aspect of this weeks scene is a triple alignment of Mercury, Neptune and Mars in the early stages of Pisces. The conjunction of these planets will get us talking about our dreams with the very people who can nudge (or kick, as the case may be) them into reality. If youve been pondering the merit of your ideas, you wont have to wonder for long. The tangible proof will tell its own irrefutable story. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The week brings you 10,080 minutes to use for good, to accomplish something remarkable, to make a positive impact and to change the world for the better -unless you plan on eating, sleeping, showering, commuting, etc. Then you probably have somewhere around 6,000 minutes, which, used well, will be quite enough. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). As an emotionally open person, you know what its like to be plunged into the depths. So you go carefully and consciously, choosing friends and love interests for their dependability. You need people around you whom you can really count on. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Author Francesca M. Cancian suggests, Part of the reason that men seem so much less loving than women is that mens behavior is measured with a feminine ruler. Do you agree or disagree? This week it will be helpful to ponder matters of gender and work to bring harmony to male/ female relationships. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you dont make any mistakes, you wont have any good stories. Youll also have very little to teach others, since the lessons worth learning often have to do with recovering from mistakes. embrace them when they happen. Your humanity connects you with kindred souls. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some around you thrive on emotionally provocative situations. You dont fall into that category, so its more challenging for you to relate to those lows, but youll try. Because you understand that everyone is different and you make an effort to empathize, an opportunity will knock. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Youre not the best judge of your own maturity, skills and attributes right now. Anyway, life presents you with new roles just when youre truly ready to take them on and not a moment sooner. So even if you think youre not ready, take a chance this week, and youll be surprised by how LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You didnt ask to be put in charge, but it was the best way, and everyone knew it. So now youre in a position to make some choices -all eyes on you, and fates seeming to hang in the balance. But dont worry. Whichever way you go, justice will prevail in the end. So make the decision, and dont look back. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are an adventurer this week, and unpredictable. You will turn a simple outing into an adventure in one of scene without a plan, or you will go into the scene with a good plan and a wily partner who is sure to keep you from following it. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). By studying gifted children, scientists have concluded that these young people do not only think along more they also feel differently. You can relate this week, as life seems to push you into an emotional landscape that inspires a high level of awareness and sophistication from you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may feel that you are somewhat misunderstood, and this is really the truth: Some people dont know how to consider you. But it would be a waste of your mind to worry about such things. Instead, take a deep breath, and let yourself settle gravitate toward like minds and kindred spirits. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Relationships may cause you to or rapid shifts in perception: a kind of emotional vertigo. Concentrate on will stop your mind from spinning in an unhelpful fashion. Your loved ones really do want you to be happy! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have it in you to solve a problem that plagues many. You already know what problem you most want to take on, and you are closer to the solution than you think. Now all you need is to focus and work. If your loved ones will support you by getting out of your way, youll have the answer by the end of the week.

It is a lovely thought, but how realistic? Working less usually means earning less -hardly an option for most people. But that doesnt mean we cannot take small steps to simplify our complicated lives. A little bit here and there, and before you know it your efforts will add up to something 1. Dejunking your life by getting rid of clutter is a cheap, fast and effective way to become physically path to emotional and intellectual happiness, too. 2. Cultivate contentment by choosing to be happy with what you have. The social imperative that one must consume to be happy is what breeds dissatisfaction ratcheting up of standards demands that we constantly upgrade. It takes a conscious effort to desire less. 3. Write down the things you need to remember, and forget everything else. Dont allow your mind to dwell on things over which you have no control. 4. Share, lend, borrow and rent. Part of the reason we have our love affair with shopping and consumerism is because we think we need to personally own everything we use. Before you agree to complicate your life further with yet another possession, consider the alternatives. 5. Turn off the TV. You may not realize how your household television viewing is affecting your purchasing and lifestyle choices. If you are addicted to television, kicking the habit will simplify your life and allow 6. Drive a simple car. High-end, but can complicate ones life. Typically to insure, register, maintain and repair. 7. Select patterned carpet. Light colored, plush carpeting is beautiful but life-altering. It shows every speck, carpets to look good without having to spend all your free time spotting, something speckled, patterned or multicolored. 8. Take charge of the phone. Just because it happens to be a convenient time for someone to call you doesnt mean its convenient for you to answer. Let your calls go to voicemail or get an answering machine. Getting control of the phone will add simplicity to your life. 9. Become label conscious. Unless its mandatory for your profession, do not buy clothes that must be dry-cleaned. Youll save time, aggravation and a ton of money over the long haul. 10. Get up earlier. The best hour of the day is the one right before you normally get up. It may take you a few weeks to truly enjoy that hour right before dawn, but when you create the habit you will be amazed by the simplicity that 60 quiet, stressfree minutes will add to your day.
