“You must remember that you are never alone, even if you feel abandoned and misunderstood by family and friends. You have spirit guides who are there for you every step of the way.

They are the best friends you will ever have, and you only need to sit quietly in meditation to feel their presence and hear their guidance.” — Garnet Michael Schulhauser, Dance of Eternal Rapture

What is the best charm for 2019 Pig year? A TIGER charm! You want the full body charm, not just a Tiger head. But no Tiger charm if you were born in Monkey year because Monkey is opposite Tiger.
Pig is most compatible with Pig’s harmony trine of artistic and sensitive like-minded souls Pig, Rabbit, and Sheep. Tiger is the one other animal sign who is Pig’s ally outside Pig’s harmony trine.
Each year, the lucky charm is the animal sign who is the ally, but not in the harmony trine.
Charms can be worn as jewelry, attached to a handbag, worn in your pocket, or placed in your clothing or wallet.
You can find a Tiger charm in the Chinatown in your city, or look online. Tiger is superb for protection. But if you find that Tiger energy makes you too argumentative, or brings a short temper, then remove…

President Trump on Wednesday signed the VA Mission Act, a new bill that seeks to overhaul the Department of Veterans Affairs and provide more healthcare options to veterans. The $55 billion bill will change how the VA pays for private care, expand a VA caregiver program for pre-9/11 vets and start the process of reviewing the overall infrastructure of the VA itself. The bill saw overwhelming bipartisan support last month passing in both chambers of Congress, and the legislation follows through with one of Trump’s major campaign promises to allow veterans more options for healthcare in the private sector. “In the campaign, I also promised that we would fight for Veterans Choice,” Trump said in a speech before signing the bill. “It just seemed to be common sense.” “It seemed like if they’re waiting on line for nine days and they can’t see a doctor, why aren’t they going outside to see a doctor and take care of themselves, and we pay the bill? It’s less expensive for us, it works out […]

Under today’s Taurus Moon, do you know how it affects you and how you will react? Our Knight of Pentacles, who very much embodies Taurus energy, is reliable, slow-moving (you see him sitting on the snail), and very down-to-earth. If used properly on this Monday, you can work in a thorough, meticulous manner, knowing that doing the job right the first time, and with proper care, avoids the necessity to redo things down the line.
Pretty much how this card translates for you today is dependent upon the attitude you wake up with on Monday morning. Taurus can be a hard worker with a fabulous reputation, or not. It is also possible under this Moon to be a bit of a slacker, which may not go over well with coworkers if they feel you are not pulling your weight. For the most part, I feel you can put this card…

White sugar rice cake (白糖糕 bai tang gao) is a traditional Chinese pastry made from white rice, sugar, water and yeast.
The cake is normally snow white in color with moist and spongy texture. The taste is sweet and sometime slightly sour due to fermentation of rice batter.
There is a very similar version of this cake in Vietnam call bánh bò which add coconut milk to the ingredients.
