Southern Horoscopes

Sept 24 - Oct 23 You have a passionate desire to help your fellow man. Unfortunately, those who know you best - your friends and loved ones - may find that your personality is much too salty, and their criticism will probably affect you deeply because you are really much softer than you appear. You should go right ahead and marry anybody you want to because in a certain way, yours is a charmed life. On the road of life, you can be sure that people will always pull over and
stop for you.

October 24 - Nov 22
Always invite a Butter Bean because Butter Beans get along well with everybody. You, as a Butter Bean, should be proud. You've grown on the vine of life and you feel at home no matter what the setting. You can sit next to anybody. However, you too, shouldn't have anything to do with Moon Pies.

Nov 23 - Dec 21
You have a tendency to develop a tough exterior, but you are actually quite gentle. A good evening for you? Old friends, a fire, some roots, fruit, worms and insects. You are a throwback. You're not concerned with today's fashions and trends. You're not concerned with anything about today. You're really almost prehistoric in your interests and
behavior patterns. You probably want to marry another Armadillo, but Possum is another somewhat kinky, mating possibility.

This concludes the Southern Horoscopes! Stay tuned to the next newsletter for other Southern trivia!
Kitchen And Household Tips:

You can use lifesaver candies as candle holders on kids birthday cakes.

Instead of throwing away your bread crusts, or those heels that lots of folks don't like, run them through a food processor then freeze in plastic bags. If you prefer them seasoned, add seasoning while running through food processor. Next time when you need bread crumbs, just take them out of the freezer and use!

To save time, money, and a mess, Use plastic bags to coat your meats or veggies. Just place the breading in the bag, then place your items in the bag and shake. Much easier!
